In order to reap the full rewards of protective styling long term with weaves, braids and twists, there are a few essential tools you need to keep it looking great and in in great health. Your hair may be out of sight, however, it should never be out of mind
- Spray Moisturizer. You need to continue to moisturize your hair regularly, even while its hidden. My favorite product at the moment is the Jane Carter Moisture Mist – check out my full review here.
- Luxe Therapy Scalp Soother. Finally, a gentle scalp massaging tool that won’t cause tangles or breakage when you use it! Best part? Its designed to be used with protective styles so you won’t end up with a frizzy mess! Check out my full review here.
- Silk or Satin Bonnet. Its easy to mistakenly assume that because your hair is hidden while protective styling, it doesn’t need to be protected. Untrue! Not does covering your hair at night preserve the style, it prevents dryness in your real hair as well.
