Yea-- you need at least 3-4 inches IMO. You don't want to pay to have braids done and then have them slip off once the tightness relaxes. And they will pull and braid as tight as they can. And another thing those (horrible) shops do is knot the extensions when briading short hair( if you get micros) DONT LET THEM DO THAT EITHER !!

For sure! I got small box braids done 2 months after I shaved my head and it looked GOOD. They came down after about a month though, that's when they started slipping out.

1 1/2 to 2 inches, but yeah, if you got an African braider, she can snatch up your skull bones.

An inch should be good. I think it depends on the size of the box braids too. Ask the person who's doing them if they're able to catch your length of hair, & if they can, you're good to go! [My random thought:...I miss my box braids! I'm gonna put 'em in again in May]. Post pics if you can once you get them done.

I think about 2 inches is best.
 
^^DivaMelody, you're right about the knotting and it's not good for the hair

How long is TOO long for them to braid the extensions in? Or does that even matter??
