The Need to Know: Keeping Up Your Hair Between Installs.
Everyone loves a good protective style, especially weaves and wigs where you can just put it all away. They help your hair grow and are a little to no fuss to style. But the foundation of a good install is healthy hair so we can't let our natural hair be forgotten. Here's a few tips on what you can do every time you take a style down to maintain healthy hair.
5. Trim your ends. You want to maintain healthy length. It will be a lot easier to deal with a few centimeters after each install versus a good few inches of split ends when you're ready to wear your natural hair.
6. Moisturize. Keeping your hair hydrated is the best way to stop breakage. Start with a good leave-in and follow with a daily moisturizer/light weight oil.
7. Let it breathe. Stay away from excessive heat, bleach, or high manipulation.
8. Protein treatment. Before you decide to try a new style give your hair a strengthening treatment
