I love having my hair styled into braids, especially in winter . This year however, I decided against braiding during winter season as I really wanted to look after my scalp and hairline by not pulling my hair. Since it’s a new season I decided to experiment with a different kind of braiding. Cornrows. There are so many different styles to choose from which made my decision so difficult. I then followed the guidelines from Pure Smart Stylish – a conscious lifestyle to help me make my decision: I took into consideration the shape of my face, the undertone of my skin and my make up style. Now I must say that the amount of time spent sitting in the salon was worth it as I feel I made the right decision with my hairstyle.
Here are a few tips on how to care for your hair while you have braids:
- Wash your hair once a week.
- Apply hair oil on your wet scalp. (Especially your hairline)
- Ensure you still spritz your hair with your daily moisturising spray.
