The most common question I get asked is how long one should keep theirbraids in before taking them out. The answer to this varies based on things such as how often you wash your hair and what kind of hair texture you have.
Depending on your hair type, braided styles may not last as long. In addition, some people with curly hair may need to wash their scalp more frequently when wearing braids.
Your scalp will tell you when it’s time to take the braids out and wash your hair. Keep an eye (or rather, feel) for product buildup, irritation, or any form of damage.
