Hey ladies,
I'm looking for a low maintenance hair style that I care wear this school year. I was thinking about something along the lines of braids/kinky twist. I'm curious about tree braids...has anybody had any? If you have, are they very damaging to your hair? Please let me know and give me advice on a low maintenance hair style. Thanks ladies!!!!!

    My two cents:

    I just had kinky twist put in my hair in May and while I liked not having to fuss over my hair for 6 weeks (i took them out kinda early because I was bored) I find that the longer my hair his the more difficult the braiding and take down process is.

    In comparison this past winter I had some pixies put in my hair and was able to wear them for 3-4 weeks with the same benefits as micros however it was cheaper and the install/take down were much faster. Also I did not have as much build-up I guess because I was really able to cleanse my roots.

    So my suggestion would be to try micro twists or pixie braids.

    Thank you, but what are pixie braids? I never heard of them before.

    Pixie braids are just small box braids. Think micro braids without any weave added in.

    Below is a picture of some I did myself in February. I kept these for 2-3 weeks. They are not as small as the ones I had previous but I was getting tired and my arms hurt so the sections started getting larger.
