How to Moisturize and Seal Braids on Natural Hair

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 🙂
