How long can extensions stay in?

About 3 weeks ago I decided to get Long poetic justice inspired braids due to the rain and humidity in my area. I'm now at a point where my hair has grown a lot (not saying protective styles make for hair growth) but I miss my fro. I don't want to take them out too soon because i want to get the most bang for my buck. So my question is how long at a minimum can extensions stay in?

There is no minimum, its recommend that they be left no longer than 6 weeks, 8 weeks if you're a pro. there have been people that have had theirs in for 6 months or so, but i can result in locking and matting and even fungus/mold, so its safe too say 6 weeks
