Hair tip of the day: PROTECTIVE STYLING!!! One of the best things you can give your hair is a BREAK. Want to hit your length goal? Give your hair moisture and rest! #IDontDoThisForMoney #IDoThisToHelp
-Do not install them tightly
-Heavy braids can damage your roots. Say “No” to HUGE box braids that require 10 or more bags of hair. (I once had 22 bags on my head 😫😫😫)
-if possible, leave your edges out (slick them down with gel)
-Don’t let braids make you lazy. You still need to moisturize.
-No matter how much you spent, if braids are irritating your scalp (especially your hairline), REMOVE THEM. “Getting your moneys worth” is not worth traction Alopecia. -Do not be afraid to be firm in your request to your stylist concerning the health of your hair. It’s your hair and your money. If the can’t honor your requests, LEAVE with no hesitation. It’s better to be safe than sorry.
Much love to you all!
