The tips we have for you will help make your African hair braiding experience an unqualified success. You’ll ūüíĖ your braids for months! And your natural hair will stay healthy and protected.

Tips For Maintaining African Braids

1.¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†Watch your hairline: In case you’ve got fine hairs along your hairline, we recommend these should not be integrated to your braids. Leave your “baby hairs,” or “edges,” out of your braids to keep them healthy.

2.       Wrap it up: Cover your braids with a silk scarf before you go to sleep at night, or use a silk pillowcase. This will prevent frizz and breakage, allowing you to keep your braids fresh looking so they last longer.

3.¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†Wash it up: African braid styles are low-maintenance, but that doesn’t mean no-maintenance. You’re still going to need to shampoo and condition your crowning glory from time to time as needed.

4.       Spray it up: In addition to regular washing, using a braid spray will help immensely in terms of preventing any itchiness. A quality braid spray will also give your braids a beautiful and vibrant shine.

5.       Take them out on time: Wearing braids makes life so much easier, sometimes we may want to leave them in even after they have clearly passed the expiration date. This damages your hair unnecessarily.

African braids are so stylish and low maintenance they are easy to love. Use our tips to take care of your braids and you will be able to carry an African hair braiding style all year long.

Prepare Your Hair For African Braids

Braided hairstyles look awesome on men and women of all ages and all races; there are many hair braiding styles available, depending on hair length and texture.

Some African braids can be worn stylishly for weeks with minimal maintenance, and this may come in handy when you want to give your hair a break from styling.

Following these tips will help you get the best hair braiding experience at our African hair braiding salon, and also ensure the braid style you choose lasts the longest.

PREPARING for your hair braiding appointment

1.       Wash: We recommend using a clarifying shampoo to wash your hair. Your braids will last the longest when we start with a clean head.

2.       Deep condition: This will help to make your hair softer and easier to work with while at the same time making it stronger to prevent breakage.

3.       Comb and detangle: Your hair must be detangled in order to get braids, so if you have washed your hair please make sure we can easily pass a comb through.

Our goal is to give you a very pleasant hair braiding experience.
