Caring For Your Natural Hair: Pre Protective styles

This means pool, parties, and protective styles.
Summer 2020 was affected by covid19 but this year, we're doing more.
We have been vaccinated [TWICE] so we're going out with the necessary precautions.

Before installing your preferred protective hairstyle, you should ensure that your natural hair is in a top-notch condition.

For a protective style, your hair is usually tucked away for a maximum of 6 weeks. So our hair has to be in a healthy state throughout this time. Although protected, your hair will be in various water bodies, rubbing against the braided hair, exposed to various elements of the environment, and not being cleaned for a long time. So getting your strands in the right state is best.

How do we go about doing this?

PRE Protective Style Installation:

While cleansing, ensure that you are massaging your scalp. The motion will lift the dead cells, product build-up, and sweat from the scalp. Therefore, ensuring that all the gunk is removed before installation. As well, it will increase blood flow to the scalp so that it can be absorbed.
