I guess if it's under a wig or somthing then the fuzzyness doesn't really matter

i love cornrows! i currently have my hair cornrowed (and under a wig). I tend to cowash my cornrows once a week and d/c once a week, and re do the cornrows every two weeks and my hair has thrived from this regimen. If u plan on getting cornrows .... just make sure you don't leave them in too long ...cause they do matt, moisturize daily, and massage ur nape and temple

I like just wearing plain ol' cornrows.. I had someone braid me up into a ponytail and left the ends loose so i could bun it.. it's cute and yea I do agree that they get fuzzy a bit quick but you're only supposed to leave cornrows in for two weeks at a time anyway..

ETA: I've been alternating between cornrows/individuals since Dec 07 and I've seen a lot of growth happening.. it's kinda moving a bit slow since my hair has been fighting to even out since my BC but I hope that by Dec of this year it'll take off.. Check out my fotki for motivation if you'd like!

Agreed. I had cornrows in for 10 days while using Claudie's elixir. By the fourth day it was a hot frizzy mess towards my edges. EXCELLENT growth though. I grew my hair out to a little bit above CBL from SL in 2 months from consistent cornrowing when I was younger.

Yes..i though it was just me...my hair fuzzed within 4 days, i would never wear cornrows out.
 
But everytime i wear braids, i get 1in each month.

Cornrows...ok for about a week but BRAID-OUT is actually my new favorite hair-do. I love to take out the braids and put it in a big, loose, crinkly french braid in the back...

Yup I'm wearing them now and the part that is ext is the bun that is pinned in so I can remove it as I please.  But I don't to protect my ends. You can look it my Fotki under protective styles to see it
