One of the main problems of women is dryness and brittleness. This leads to a shortening over time, since a dry and brittle scalp hair can not lengthen. Therefore, women suffering from this problem are turning to hair extensions. But these can also be harmful. So, is that a problem without a solution? Not at all. Tree pigtails are a natural type of extension that protects your own hair while adding the length and body you’ve always dreamed of. Here are 50 ideas that you can use.
1. What are Tree Braids hairstyles?
Tree braids are pretty easy to understand. Your hairdresser starts creating very thin and small braids near your scalp. You can use cornrows or any type of braid that you feel comfortable with. As he or she progresses, they braid in extension, which can be any length, style or color you desire.
2. Invisible tree braids
They are also called invisible braids because they are very small and thin and because they are so close to the scalp. The braids also go very well with your hair. But you can choose to show them if you want.
