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
Wrap your hair during the wear of the style to keep your edges protected as they begin to unravel from the braid.
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.
Ultimately braids are like any other style… They can be healthy or unhealthy depending on how you care for them while you wear them.
I hope these tips will help you keep your braids healthy.
Until Next time
Stay Healthy Happy and Always Loving
