Upkeep…

I wore my hair in braids for 2 years back in 2007 and 2008, and almost forgot just how much I enjoy it! I love having my hair in braids mainly because they’re so easy to maintain and it keeps me from effin around with my hair. I’m also glad to have one less thing to worry about when getting ready for work or school in the mornings!


I like keeping my braids in a bun, as it keeps the hair neat, as well as keeps them from getting caught in or under anything… eek!
My routine to keep my scalp clean and healthy consists of hot water, a face cloth, paltus/argan oil mix and braid spray. I simply wet the cloth, wipe my scalp, rinse, repeat until clean. After my scalp is clean, I oil it with the paltus/argan oil mix. I also use a braid spray as an everyday moisturizer for my scalp and hair.
No harmful ingredients in here… well at least I didn’t see any on the label lol
Before bed I spray my scalp with a homemade spritz, and cover my hair with a satin wrap. If you currently have braids, make sure you’re taking care of your scalp and hair the same way you would if you didn’t have braids. Avoid pulling the braids back into tight styles, and make sure to keep your scalp clean and moisturized. Oh and sleep with a satin wrap every night to keep braids fresh, and neat.

peace, love and health
