Tips for Braid Care

Here are a few tips how to maintain beautiful braids and healthy scalp and hair.

  1. Wash braids with a moisturizing shampoo at least once a week to keep them clean and prevent unpleasant odor.
  2. To maintain your natural hair and facilitate its growth, keep your hair well-conditioned through oiling.
  3. If your hair becomes frizzy after washing, apply small amounts of gel or Aloe Vera while it's still damp and secure it with a silk scarf.
  4. Between washings, you can use an antiseptic product to cleanse and freshen the scalp.
  5. Do not go to sleep with your braids not completely dry to prevent bacteria buildup and mildew.
