Also if your roots grow outward it would be that way all of the time it wouldn't be just after braiding. You need to find a skilled braider who does not pull or braid so tightly that your hair comes out at the root. That is one reason why I avoid hair braiding shops at all costs. There are language issues and they focus on money and speed not hair CARE. Your hair and scalp should be the focus whether braided or not. If your hair roots are lifting remove the braids in the area ASAP. It could take weeks to return to normal and really you are lucky if you still can grow hair in those areas.

If it is dandruff then wash your hair or rinse ure scalp with a diluted shampoo mix and change ure scalp moisturizer.

If your hair is being pulled out at the root your braided is braiding way too tightly. Get another braided ASAP. That should never happen and the hair may not grow back.

I love getting twists and box braids in my hair as a protective style. One problem I always seem to have though is that my roots grow outward. Like I can see the white bulb root end of my hair through my braids. It starts after about only a week and then gets worse. Is there some way to fix this or make the roots less noticeable. By about week three I look like I have a head full of dandruff and everyone knows that's not a good look.

Thanks for any help and I hope I explained my problem right.
