Looking forward to taking down these crochet braids next week. Just one more week to go.
I duuno if this will be feasible for you but I used mini braids to grow out my hair. Because of my hair texture it was the only way I could do daily WNGs without all of the ssks. I started back in 2010 when I had only 3” of hair and I still rock them now.I had plans to start washing my hair once a week instead of once a month, but now I'm tired of my hair. I want a protective style that I can keep in for 4-6 weeks that'll give me access to my scalp and won't make my skin itch. Wigs make me itch, I'm too tender headed for braids, and crochet braids make my scalp sore. Maybe I'll give bunning a go.
My answered is mixed. I like the split ender because I don't have to take off 1 inch to get rid of 1/4 inch. It is also easy to use.
I used to rock those all he time before I went and chopped the back of my hair off. I'll have to let the back grow out a bit more before I can revisit my beloved mini braids.

Once you spend all of the time putting them in, you can just refresh them one by one at your own pace and keep them in for months at a time. I wash, cowash, DC and everything else in them like they are loose hair. You can also style and bun them like loose hair.
Here are some pix of mine on natural and texlaxed hair. But if you google mini braids, you’ll see a lot of pretty images.

I know how you feel. I'm thinking of looking into this although I'd rather have looser vs completely straight hair. Which brand do you use?I can't deal with my natural texture. I've went back to keratin and will probably use Hair Botox from here on out. My hair is so easy to manage now
Try Shescentit Cranberry cocktail @BrittI need a really good light yet emollient moisturizer to use as a moisturizer/leave in before I apply my stylist product. When I was natural before Camille Rose's fresh curl was perfect but she changed the formula. It was light yet incredibly moisturizing and emollient. It just melted into my strands instead of being a thick greasy cream that just sits on the surface.
