And albeit that they are an easy maitenance hairstyle, they do need a little work to keep them in tip top condition at all times, why not check out some of our useful tips and tricks to help you along the way to achieving some beautiful braids for that beautiful crown you own.
And to begin, let’s take a look at one of the most crucial and vital tips… as with those cold and wintery months, your hair is going to be a little more fragile when you’ve gone in for those fabulous and timeless braids and so you need to take heed to keep them in place and to avoid those pesky breakages. One of the best tips that you can benefit from has to be that all essential bedtime headscarf! Wherever possible, cover up your braiding with something smooth and silky at bedtime, something that’s soft and comfortable. It will prevent breakages and also prevent that nightmare itching of your head which is only going to dislodge your awesome braids, something that you want to avoid at all costs! The more you itch, the more they’ll move and your hair will break, so don’t do it and get it on with some slink!
The next useful tip and trick that you’re going to be needing to pay heed to, is to speak up! Be vocal at all times when you’re in the stylists chair, this isn’t supposed to be a painful experience, you shouldn’t be needing to rely on painkillers to function, they really really shouldn’t hurt! So if you’re sitting in the salon and your creation is in the process of becoming a reality and it’s hurting, you need to say so. They shouldn’t be tight to the point of being excrutiating. Beauty has it’s pain from time to time, killer heels is the first one that springs to mind, but to live from day to day, month to month, with a tense headache from braids that are just too tight is not what it’s about! Yet on saying that, they may be a little uncomfortable in the initial outset, however, there are ways of overcoming this problem before you waltz in to your salon and demand your hard earned cash back! One of the best ways to loosen them up a little, make them a little more comfortable, is to drizzle some warm water over your hair and then gently massage your braids to just ease and relax them, try this on a couple of occasions and you should soon find yourself with something that’s not requiring an asprin the minute you jump out of bed.
And on a final note, there is that ever important and moisturizing mist… this is one of those tips that we should all be adhering to, black hair is prone to dryness and saps up that moisture with extreme thankfulness! Your hair loves it, it idolizes and worships it and so cherish your hair and give it a full on and awesome spray as part of your regular beauty regime.
