Frequently Asked Questions

We’ve gathered a few of the most frequently asked questions and tried to answer them in the upcoming section.

At what age should children get braids?

The appropriate age to seriously consider braiding or using extensions is determined by the child’s hair health and maturity level.

However, we recommend that you wait until your child is ten or twelve years of age before having to introduce her to protective braiding hairstyles.

How long can you keep beads in your braids?

Avoid leaving beads in your children’s hair for not more than two weeks. After that, you’ll need to remove the braids or twists to wash and hydrate her hair before re-applying the beads.

Can braids damage your kids’ hair?

Breakage around the hairline can occur if your child’s hair is braided very tightly. Hair is lighter around the hairline, causing it to become more fragile, so hair stylists always make sure to braid your child’s hair carefully.
