2. They last between 6-8 weeks

3. They are less expensive then micro braids

4. You can style them any way you choose

5. You can use any hair that is 18 inches or longer

    Hi there, these look great as I’m transitioning to natural and growing tired of curlformers, roddiings, etc. What’s the best type of hair to use or technique to prevent matting of the added hair? Is it better to go with yaki or hair that curls when wet? How is the hairline approached? In the photo it looks very natural. Will the style be flat to the head or be full? Is there anyone in Chicago that can do this technique?

  6. Kellie says:

    Hi! What kind of hair was used for the woman in the picture? What length was it? It looks really good!

  7. Ann says:

    how much hair is need for tree braiding? how many packs?

  8. Kris says:

    You need 2 packs of hair.
    If you are purchasing it by the ounceget 8oz.

  9. Kris says:

    This is probably the number one question that I get about the pictures I have on my site. I am sad to say that I do not know the brand of hair that she used! She brought her own hair and I do not remember the brand! I do however know that it is 24 inches long.

  10. Kris says:

    If you want to avoid matting while you have tree braids I suggest that you plat your hair at night if you used curly hair or wrap it if the hair you used is straight. If you used curly human hair then I would suggest that you also use a leave in conditioner spray to de-tangle and soften the curl.

  11. Margaret says:

    I really like the straight look, I’ve always used wet and wavy human hair. But I would like a change, I interested in this form of braiding do you know anyone in the SF bay area or sarcramento,CA

  12. Bridget says:

    Where are you located?

  13. Joy says:

    The lady’s hair in the picture is gorgeous. I was looking for a stylist for my 14 year old, but now I may be going as well. Please let me know who did this…hopefully in the Atlanta area.

  14. K says:

    Is there ANY way to ask you client the brand and type of hair she used? I think that many folks on here would greatly appreciate it. It’s almost like a tease to see it but not know where/how to get it :)

  22. Brittany Smalls says:

    Hey Kris the tree braids look so nice!! I am planning on studying abroad this fall for 3-4 months and I want my hair to have a break and grow out…now this only lasts for 6-8 weeks but do you think it is a good idea? Or what do you think I should do in that situation? I am nervous about my hair…and also are they easy to take out? I’m guessing tree braids are basically like sew in weave, except for a little more braiding involved…well braiding instead of sewing? Any suggestions would help!!

    I live in the Maryland area and would love this professional look. I met a braider who does another type of braid when I wanted the tree. Because she only speaks French, we don’t communicate well together.

    Do you know of anyone in this area you could recommend?

    Thanks! The photos are great.
