This micro braids weave hairstyle goes along way. With micro braids lasting for as long as 2 months (that is with some retouches), you create a wide array of hairstyles from elaborate bun updos to cute ponytails. Although its is known for women to wear Micro Braids for as long as 3 months or more, it is not recommended due to hair loss. The weight of braids can cause much stress to your hair if left in too long and put in too tight. Be very careful choosing your braid specialist and do not keep your braids in too long, or you will experience thinning edges, hair breakage, and possible permanent hair loss.
