African hair Braiding Box braids
If your hair is encumbered with waxes, thick oils, chlorine and other impurities then it can feel hardened and straw-like. Even worse, it will be less likely to accept your conditioning treatments. Once your braids are removed, your hair will be more prone to breakage and difficulty finger detangling. If you a.) don’t swim alot, b.) need to use heavy products on your hair or c.) are afraid to risk dry hair at the hands of a clarifying shampoo, feel free to stick to what is familiar until your hair shows symptoms of coated hair like product buildup.
