Frequently Asked Questions
How should I have my hair when I arrive for my appointment?
Please do not wash your hair before your appointment. Braids go in nicer, look better and last longer on hair that has some natural oil in it.
Dry shampoo is fine to use.
Please arrive with your hair brushed/ free of knots.
How long do braids last?
Technically they will last forever, the real question is “How long will they look good for?”
This depends on what style you are getting to start with:
Loose styles usually only last a day or 2.
Fishtail styles can last up to a week.
Other braids have been known to last 4+ weeks.
It also depends on your hair and how you sleep.
If you come with freshly washed/ fluffy hair they aren’t going to last as long. Braids last a lot longer on hair that has natural oil in it.
Sleep is another big factor, if you roll around a lot/ are a restless sleeper the braids are going to get messier/ fluffier quicker.
Sleeping on a silk pillow case has been known to help. We also sell “Silky hair wraps/ Durags” instore and online, these are recommended for sleeping in to help protect the braids and make them last longer.
