Or, you just want to stretch your protective style just one or two weeks more. So refreshing your braids is the best option to make them look as if you just got it done the night before.
1. EDGE CONTROL
Laying your edges is a great protective style refresher as your edges are always done after installation. So get you a good edge control that is made with healthy ingredients. These ingredients should be ALL natural such to provide you with hold, sheen and health. This combination is a must as it will ensure that while your edges are slicked back they are being nourished simultaneously.

2. REDO THE CROWN:
Along with doing your edges, you can do redo the crown of your hair. For the braids/twist that you can directly see which sits along the perimeter of your hair, specifically the crown. If you have twists, you can re-twist redo them. Redo them doesn't mean unraveling and start over but tightening them. Tightening the braid involves twisting the braids so that all of the new growth is pulled into it. Then, you would secure the "new" braids into place to make it look as if it's brand new.
