Answer
  • Question: How do I care for my hair daily while it's in box braids? - Anonymous
  • Answer:

    You must take care of your real hair underneath the fake hair when you have braids or twists with extensions of any kind. So do what you usually do with your hair. 

    MOISTURIZE & SEAL

    Spray your braids with a moisturizing spray. Possibly every 3 days or when you feel your hair is dry. Oil your scalp and let a little oil run through the braids to seal in the moisture.

    NIGHT CARE
    Tie up your hair at night and sleep on a silky pillowcase. 

    WASH
    Shampoo and condition every week or every 2 weeks. Hair likes water. And also if you don’t wash your hair will smell. Make sure you wash the scalp and squeeze the rest of the product throughout the legnth of the braid. Be careful not to ruffle up your braids. Let it air dry. If you can’t wait that long then blot your braids with an only shirt. Make sure your redo any braids that don’t look good.
