- First of all, create a budget- see my post on how Imanage my products. Having a budget is crucial in preventing and avoiding frustrations with handling your hair whether on a daily, weekly or monthly basis. How much do you have to spend on hair? What are your wants and needs? How long will you be in school and will the budget be a one time or monthly thing? Are those products easily available on campus, if not, get alternatives!
- Have protective styles you want to wear? For weaves and braids, you may choose to wash monthly.If wigs, you can get corn rows for as long as you intend to wear them. If you want to wear out 50% of the time, read point 3!

I’ve had a post (see this link) on this topic but I decided to do one related to the context of Africa/West Africa/Ghana where a majority of my readers are in tertiary institutions. I started my hair journey whilst I was in school (University of Cape Coast) so I can relate to challenges that come up. How do you combine hair care with studies?

After 5 weeks of protective styling, I did an overnight deep conditioning (Africas Best Hair Mayonnaise and Cholestrol) and spent 2 hours detangling and washing my hair with Pure Essence Tea Tree Mint Shea Shampoo and Conditioner.
