Tree Braids

Tree braids are like the 2000s version of micros. Rather than sitting in a chair for up to 10 to 12 hours to get a million tiny braids that run down the entire hair shaft, tree braids take less than half the time and are only braided just an inch or so from the crown of your head, either as a cornrow or individual braid. This difference allows for much more versatile looks because you can use any type of weave you choose, be it silky straight or wet and wavy, and the braids are hardly noticeable. You might think, why not just get a sew-in if that’s the case, but tree braids allow your scalp to breathe more and for you to access it in order to scratch, wash, and moisturize, which is key for keeping your real hair healthy.

    Beware of the “tree braids”. Because more of your hair is left out you are more likely to end up with jacked up ends when you take them out. Personally I’m strongly considering box braids.

    I can see myself doing a fishtail braid but no to the rest. A couple of years ago I was all about braids as a protective style, now because of the length of my hair I can’t fathom spending hours on putting them in and a day to take them out. Plus braids were never that protective to my hair to begin with.

  • I really want to revisit my 4th grade box braids this summer, but I HATE having to sit there while they do them, and taking them out is an even bigger pain.
