Protective Styling : Braids

Monday, June 27, 2011

Protective styling can be beneficial to you hair and also gives your hair a well deserved break. Here are a fewtips to follow when protective styling be it braids, cornrows, or twists
  • Before putting your hair in any protective style, always clean and deep condition your hair with preferably a protein based deep conditioner to make sure your strands are stronger.
  • If you have to blowdry your hair before you braid, always use a heat protectant.
  • Make sure your braider does not braid your hair too tight especially on your edges
  • Ensure that the braider uses equal sections of hair extensions and your own hair...if she uses too much hair on each section it can cause breakage due to the weight.
  • Always moisturise your hair even in braids.Mix, water, conditioner and a few drops of essential oil in a spray bottle and use this to moisturise your hair and keep the itchies away

Hope you had a great weekend folks!
