Is it normal for hair to come out while in braids?

to clarify, the Senegalese twists are still in her head, we aren't taking them down rn (only been in for a week and a half). Three braids have already come out and each time the hair that was also twisted  comes out with it. Almost likeThe hair is ripped from her scalp, is that normal??

No i don't think so maybe the braids are too tight for her. Putting too much stress on  hair will cause hair to break off. If her ultimate goal is to grow out her hair you should either loosen the braids or style it in another way that doesn't put too much stress on the scalp.
