Final Words

Here are three indispensable tips to ensure your braids remain a crown of glory:

  1. Hydration is Key: Keep your scalp and braids moisturized with a lightweight spray to promote health and shine.
  2. Wrap it Up: Protect your braids from friction and moisture loss by wrapping your head with a silk or satin scarf during your gym sessions or catching up Z’s.
  3. Gentle Cleansing: Maintain a clean scalp with a gentle cleansing routine using a diluted shampoo or braids-specific cleansing spray.
