Tips: Washing Your Hair
You might think that washing your hair is okay but it’s actually best if you don’t wash it often at all. The more you wash your hair the faster it will spoil. You may feel the need to wash it at some point and when you do you should wear a net cap before shampooing. You are going to wet the hair through the net. Always use a mild shampoo. Use a small amount in the palm of your hand and then press it all over your head, pressing the shampoo in as much as possible. By using mild shampoos, you don’t run the risk of stripping your hair of the oils. This is a great way of cleaning your scalp. You can just let the shampoo sit there for a few minutes before rinsing and that will give you the clean that you need. Make sure you use cool water. Make sure that all the soap is rinsed off.

Tips: Conditioning Your Hair
Conditioning is important because it will help to prevent breakage with your braids. It’s important to condition on a regular basis. A great conditioner would be a leave-in or rinse-off conditioner. A great tip for the conditioner use is to dilute it so that you can get it in between the hair easier. It’s also easier to rinse off if it’s diluted. If you don’t dilute the conditioner, it can lead to a heavy built up especially if you use a thick conditioner. The residue will also dry white which won’t be good for your look at all. You don’t want your look to be untidy. If it’s leave in conditioner you can do it a few times a week. Another thing that you can do to protect your hair from a bad smell or damage is to use braid sheen in small amounts.

Tips: Moisturizing Your Hair
While you shouldn’t be shampooing your hair a lot, one thing that you should be doing is moisturizing your hair. You should do it on a regular basis. You can get moisturizers in the form of a spray sheen. When it comes to braids, it is best to avoid oil-based moisturizers. If you use oil, it’s only going to sit on top of the hair and make it look oily. If you use natural oil-based moisturizers it will prevent dryness and dandruff. The moisturizers that have jojoba or olive oil in it are the best to use. Don’t use too much, just an adequate amount. You want to minimize itching the scalp as much as possible.

Tips: Get A Satin Pillow
You don’t want to ruin your braids when you are sleeping so the best thing that you can do for your hair is to sleep on a satin pillow. By using a satin pillow, you are protecting your hair’s moisture level. Believe it or not, but by using this type of pillow, you are preventing your hair from being stripped of moisture. Regular, cotton pillows will soak up the moisture from your hair leaving it damage. The kind of damage involved will be thinning of the hair or split ends. You also have the choice of using a cap but it’s important to make sure that your cap is comfortable so that you don’t get headaches. By wrapping your head before you go to bed, you prevent breakage or frizz happening with your style.
