Braided hair extensions are artificial hair products that can make natural hair appear longer. They attach to existing hair by adding them to hanging braids or by using thread to sew them into braids that run along the scalp.
Braided hair extensions are often made from real human hair harvested from women who sell it for use in cosmetic procedures. This means that hair extensions can generally receive treatment similar to that of existing hair, including washing, styling and dying it, but those with braided hair weaves should avoid tugging on them or snagging them. Braided hair extensions generally need replacement every two to three months.
