7 Tips To Protect Your Hair From Your Protective Style

washing braid extensions

Cleanse scalp regularly. Braided styles lower the amount of maintenance required for your hair, but does not completely eliminate it. Shampoo every seven to 10 days and make sure to fully dry after each. If you don’t it may lead to mildew or breakage and that’s not sexy.

Keep braids moisturized. Oil your scalp daily to keep it healthy. Healing oils help reduce any flakes and sooth an irritated scalp. Leave-in sprays are perfect for those hard to reach areas. Drinking water also contributes to healthier hair saving the scalp from becoming brittle, dry, and damaged.
