Practical advice about Kanekalon braids
Based on their experience styling and caring for natural hair, stylists have practical advice about how to care for your hair while wearing the long braids that are super trendy now. Long braid styles are fashionable, cute and sexy, but it’s also important to protect the health and strength of your own hair. With any style, you should always consult with your stylist so you can protect your own hair into the future.
Treat your edges right!
Redoing the twists or braids along your hairline and nape is essential, especially if your hair tends to tangle easily in those regions. This habit will help to reduce breakage and thinning edges by inhibiting meshing.
Keep your braids frizz free!
When wearing twists or braids as a long-term protective style, it is better to make them small or miniature. Bigger twists and bigger braids tend to frizz faster, and frizz keeps your hair from holding style.
Clean your braids.
When using a shampoo to cleanse your hair, use a sodium lauryl sulfate-free shampoo or a moisturizing and conditioning shampoo. They can add conditioning agents to the hair, soften it, and make it more manageable.
Be sure to rinse thoroughly to avoid skin irritation.
