I am a huge fan of protective styling, not only does it protect your hair and let your hair flourish without you doing a thing, but it also saves you time. I’m not talking about protective styling with your own hair because that’s the only protective styling I have been doing for the past 12 years of being natural. However, I’m referring to using added hair. I know I am really late to this but a lot of time when i would buy hair at the store, well one time that I did, my scalp itched so bad that I couldn’t take it. It literally came out that night. I tried again at a hair salon that cost a lot of money to put in my hair, the same thing happened my hair itched so bad that I took it out immediately. So now loss of money and a burning scalp, so I simply stopped.
Wash hair throughly
When having a process where your hair will not be touched in awhile it’s best to get a deep clean and deep condition to get your hair prepared for this. You want to make sure all the dirt, oil and product build up is removed from your hair. Deep conditioning is going to draw moisture in your hair and make your hair easy to detangle.
