Maintaining Your Braids or Twists
A big mistake that a lot people make once they get they’re braids is not maintaining them. Braids can be considered to be a protective style, but your natural hair has to get some T.L.C. to remain strong and healthy. Here at Beauty Concepts Salon, we’re all about promoting the heath and growth of your hair. This is why we offer consultations and solutions for your hair including hot oil treatments, protein treatments, deep conditioners, and more.
But as you know there are things that you can and should do to take care of your hair, especially when you’ve chosen to go with a braided style. Here are a couple of tips to ensure that your braids look good, last long, and your real hair continues to thrive.
- Avoid Pulling Too Tightly: The constant tension that comes pulling at your hair can be quite damaging to your hair, specifically your hairline, which is the the weakest area of your entire head. Consistently pulling at it can cause it to become even more weak, resulting in breakage and no one wants that. Instead, be gentle when handling your braids or twists and avoid doing too many up dos.
- Don’t Leave Your Braids In Too Long: Braids and twists are considered to be a type of protective style, but if left in too long, they can become quite damaging. These styles are meant to be temporary. We recommend the you keep the style for up to six to ten weeks, depending on the style.
- Moisturize & Seal Your Hair: Moisturizing your hair is another key to maintaining the integrity of your hair, with or without braids. We recommend starting out with a moisturizer of your choice, whether it be homemade, store bought, or just regular water. Then be sure to seal that hydration in will some type of oil or or sealing product. This will ensure that your hair remains soft and supple instead of dry and brittle.
- Moisturize Your Scalp: At the base of moisturized healthy hair is a moisturized scalp. Think of your hair as a plant. Without hydrated soil, the plant can not thrive and the same goes for your scalp and hair. So make sure that you moisturize your scalp at least once a day with a little H2O.
- Protect Your Hair When Going To Bed: Covering your head with a satin scarf, bonnet, or even sleeping on a satin pillowcase helps keep your edges in tact and your hair from drying out. Cotton soaks up moisture, therefore a cotton pillow case extracts the moisture from your hair and scalp.
- Wash Your Braids: Some may think that you aren’t able to wash your own hair when you have it styled with braids. This is false. There is buildup that can form on your scalp from everyday dirt, sweat, etc. that has to be cleansed. You having braids does not allow you a pass to go without washing your hair.
Your hair is your crown and it should be treated as such. Don’t go on neglecting your beautiful mane.
