Let’s face it ladies… We Love our hair styles. We love our braids, crochets, sew ins even wigs etc. Although these styles are certainly favorites amongst us all we still have to be careful to care for our hair so here are a few tips!

Preparation before the style . . .

Before you get your braids or crochets be sure to condition and moisturise your hair throughly. Be sure to include a scalp treatment as well.

Oil Your Scalp

When you get your style completed take the time to oil (back in the day we called it Grease yo scalp) So Grease yo scalp. During the wear of your style take the time periodically to condition your scalp this can be done by literally washing your braids and then conditioning your scalp as you would without the style.

Wrap Your Hair

Allow Braids To Loosen Before Styling

Be sure to wait until the braids loosen on the roots before wearing updos to keep from further stress on your roots.
