Braids are not simply a unique hairstyle; they also offer protective benefits by keeping your hair in place and reducing manipulation. However, maintaining healthy hair requires some effort and the right products to ensure your hair stays strong and nourished throughout the braiding process and beyond.

To maintain healthy hair while in a protective style, start with proper pre-braiding care. This includes washing your hair with a gentle cleanser like our No Itch Shampoo to remove any dirt, oil, or product buildup that could potentially lead to scalp irritation or braids that don't last as long. Follow up with a hydrating conditioner or our Comb Out Soft Conditioner Spray to moisturize your hair and make it more manageable for braiding.

During the braiding process, it's essential to avoid pulling your hair too tightly, as this can cause tension and damage to your hair follicles. Instead, opt for a gentle braiding technique and take breaks if needed to prevent strain on your scalp and hairline.

Once your hair is braided, continue to care for them by keeping your scalp clean and moisturized. You can use our No Itch Shampoo to cleanse your scalp as needed, followed by our Comb Out Soft Conditioner Spray to hydrate your hair and reduce frizz. Additionally, wearing a protective style like a satin scarf or bonnet at night can help prevent friction and preserve your protective styles while you sleep.

With the right care and products, you can enjoy healthy, beautiful braids that last longer and promote the overall health of your hair.
