When braiding your Yarn Braids Extensions, make sure to take your time! I know it’s fun and even if you know what you are doing, you want to be careful with the way that you handle the hair on your head. Be careful that when you braid your hair that it isn't too tight.

Your extensions should feel snug with only a slight pull, if you feel uncomfortable, have headaches or pain, that is your scalp letting you know that the tension is unbearable. Braiding the hair too tight does help the style last for a little bit longer but it also encourages hair loss which no one wants!

You can reduce this greatly by braiding at a tightness that is comfortable for you. So many times, I used to braid my hair too tight just to make it “last longer” and I would be hurting myself in the end.Take your time and stick to what you know works for you and keep working and practicing as your do your Yarn Braids Extensions!
