Ok so I'm dying to get box braids but I have super fine curly hair. Can this be done? Now I know ppl get it done sometimes who say they have "fine" hair... but I would just hate to spend the money and they slip out because parts of my hair are super fine. In the past when I got sew-in's I could only get the very center of the back of my head braided and just pieces attached because my nape and edges are essentially just baby hair and the braids wouldn't stay with the weight of the tracks. And I want this to be a protective style for the most part, and if it's ripping out my hair it's not doing it's job lol.
 
I was considering 'conditioning' my hair for this for something like 12 weeks first maybe? By sealing with castor oil instead of coconut oil daily, deep conditioning twice a week, and doing a minor protein treatment once every week or once every two weeks (it likes protein) and get back on my msm, b-complete, garlic oil, and choline/inositol. Would that help any? (I know I should be doing all that regardless, right? lol)
 
Here are some pics of my edges/texture. Anyone with my fineness please come forward and share your experience! lol. A friend also suggested senegalese twists. Would those provide any less tension/weight? I hadn't really considered getting either without added hair though. It's just not full enough or long enough to me.

i would try the twists. I would be so scared to put that hair in box braids. Also, make sure whoever does it is extra gentle if you do decide to go with the braids. Most of the times braiders just be braiding all tight because I guess they think all black people is not tender headed or have extra fine hair like yours.

Thanks. That's what I Was thinking :S
 
It's just irking the mess out of me. I used to have coarser 4a hair a few years ago... but now that I went on all natural products, better treatment, and it's gotten longer, it's doing this super fine loosely curled thing. It's making it so much harder to wear styles for more than a day and consider protective styles.
 
Yeah, I'm not tenderheaded either so I'd be all bald and not even know it lol
