Tree braids are the best way to wear hair extensions. The natural weave is attached to your hair by cornrow braiding.
The braiding starts on top of your head and hair extensions are carefully woven in to become part of your hairstyle. This is the most natural way to extend your hair since no glue or needles are used. That’s also the reason why tree braids don’t last as long as other hair extension methods.
However, they can still stay intact for 2 or 3 months depending on the hair type and hair care technique.
