4 Unforgettable Lessons I Learned About Braids

I was taking down our daughter’s braids, when a chunk of hair came out. It was so dry, it just fell off. I thought braids were a protective style that prevented breakage. Welp! Here is what I learned…

 

1. Proper Preparation

I noticed if I am going to keep their hair in braids for a week, I have to do more preparation. The healthier their hair is before I install the braids, the better condition their hair will be when I take them out. I have to fully cleanse, condition, air dry, thoroughly detangle and lightly butter (with shea).

 

2. Daily Moisturizing 

Whether they wet their hair while bathing, or I spritz with water in morning — I have to keep their tresses moisturized.

 

3. Less Beads

I noticed too many beads can cause stress and weigh the hair down. It can also be uncomfortable to sleep in. Now, I put no more than one third of their hair length.

 

4. Sealing the ends

A friend recommended I finger coil the ends if we are not putting beads. This helps to keep the ends neat and healthy.
