How To Prepare Your Hair For Braids
Basically, the routine for the preparation doesn't differ from that of getting a weave on.
1. Detangle your hair before going to the salon so the stylist doesn't mishandle the hair or use the wrong comb to detangle. This is especially crucial for natural hair. In addition to that, you have to also stretch your natural hair before getting to the salon because experience has shown that some stylist can't stretch your hair without charging extra or even creating more mess by using a hot tool to stretch without proper protection.
- Deep conditioning before braids will provide the moisture your hair needs. Since your ow hair is going into hiding, it's best to give it a lot of moisture.
Choose the correct braid size for your hair. If you have thin hair and decided to get large plaits, you may add too much weight to the hair.
4.Get a braid spray to moisturize the hair. Moisturized hair is also very easy to take down.
