Tips To Take Care Of Braids

To keep the braids for the longest time about 6-8 weeks and still clean and make the braids last longer through the following steps:

  • Moisturize on a daily basis: Apply a leave-in conditioner, oil, or Shea butter to braids on damp or dry hair. Make sure to massage your chosen product into your scalp to prevent it from drying out. It's easier to direct the solution in-between braids with a pointed applicator.
  • Wash the scalp every 7-10 days: Wet hair and  gently work through braids, and squeeze it out.
  • Wear a silk do-rag or a silk pillowcase to protect your hair while you sleep. Because the smooth fabric won't pull on hair or dry it out like cotton, this is fantastic advice for all natural hairstyles.
