It’s going on two weeks since I’ve had my small braids in. Frankly, I’m tired of them! I’m ready to take them out but before I do, let me share with you how I have been keeping them moisturized and the ends sealed.
Braids are a relatively low maintenance style. My ends are in fabulous condition and I’ve had little to no breakage since I haven’t been messing in my hair. And yet, while that is a wonderful thing for length retention, I can’t keep these braids in another day! I think for me, I need to keep my protective styling short and sweet. In other words, I can rock braids…just bigger ones that I take out after a week.
My next protective style for the summer will be loose twists. I haven’t washed my hair in two weeks and am going to stretch that to three. When I wash with my new shampoo bar (first time ever using one of these by the way), I will stretch my hair out with a roller set and then do loose twists. Stay tuned 🙂
