After Braids: My Edges

I should have posted this picture sooner. But, I wanted to show you guys how the micro braids pulled out my edges. They are thin and bald in some areas. Lesson learned... If I ever get extensions again, I will not get micro braids. I only kept the braids in for 3 weeks. You can imagine if I had left them in longer.


  1. I never do micro braids for that reason. Even when I do a version of them I always redo the edges and keep the area closest to the root clean from any buildup. Alot of times its the buildup and the tangles/knots that are created at the base of the braids that creates the balding.

  2. @Vetsnatural,Thank you for the info. I had a lot of build up.

  3. When I wore braids I would remind the stylist to relax her hold and not to braid too tight, also I would tell her that my shorter hairs (usually in the back of my head) didn't need to be put into a braid. Remember that if you scrunch your face or lift your eyebrows and it feels to tight then your braids are too tight.

  4. Thank you for sharing.

    I agree with JenJen!! The good thing is that you learned your lesson and you know what to and what not to do the next go round!!
