Braid Care!


Braids are a style staple and, this spring, they’re not going anywhere! Here are the top tips to keep your braids – and scalp – feeling and looking fresh:

-       Use a braid spray daily to moisturize your hair and keep your hair from locking while in the braids – especially if you plan on keeping them for longer than four weeks.

-       Stop your stylist from braiding too tightly and avoid keeping your braids in tight updo’s – the last thing you want is to damage your hairline!

-       Try to wash your braids every week to add moisture to your hair. Top advice: Mix half a cup of shampoo with three cups of water and rinse this over your hair.

-       If your scalp gets dry, massage in a natural oil (like coconut oil) or serum.

-       Keep a small soft bristled brush in your bag to neaten stray hairs that can make your braids look untidy
