Funny statement. grin Being biracial does not guarantee long healthy hair. Just saying wink

@Topic I keep braids in for a short period. Like 2 weeks maximum. They get boring pretty quickly. Weaves I keep in for 6-8 weeks.

When i was a lot younger i always have braids and cornrows, i had a rule though!

My braids and cornrows only stayed on for a week back then!

I wear shower caps, and i keep it firmly wrapped to preserve it!

I am not gay and i aint no sissy, so please dont ask me!!!

Iice, braids or bob malley (the long braids)?
Re: ~ How Long Do You Keep Your Weaves, Braids & Cornrows~ by iice(f): 9:05pm On Apr 18, 2009
Bob malley. . .i only do box braids too. Never did pick and drop - i think that one would be hard to wash.
Re: ~ How Long Do You Keep Your Weaves, Braids & Cornrows~ by Pittbaby(f): 9:43pm On Apr 18, 2009
I only do pick and drop and yes you can not wash it unless you dont mind looking crazy and half the braids coming out

All, 2 weeks- going for the 3rd week is pushing it.

Its a mood thingy for me
but usually not more than the 2 weeks "tops" recommended for cornrows and 4weeks for braids.
so many factors informs when some pple shld take those things off though;
itchy scalp,
scanty hair,
too lazy to clean braids et al cool
Re: ~ How Long Do You Keep Your Weaves, Braids & Cornrows~ by Nobody: 1:27am On Dec 04, 2012
Whenever I get twists and braids I usually keep them in for as long as they look fresh.
It would be a month or two. smiley

Pittbaby: Braids - 1 month , it gets itchy after the first two weeks and I can't wash it.


Same here!!! My braids itch ALOT in the first few days - week.
I usually apply a little water/oil solution or BRX braid spray to my scalp.
They only work temp. tho. Only time helps to ease the irritation. tongue
