During his braided phase we saw Central Cee alternate between 2 big braids and traditional cornrows.
The protective style became a signature look for the rapper up until the point he decided to switch for a short curly look.
Off scalp Braids
His first music cover features his hair in off scalp braids which may be a look most fans recognise him for.
Styled with a middle parting and boxed parts we can see central Cee in majority of his photos in this hairstyle.
Top knot Hairstyle
When he took a break from protective styling, we saw him tie his hair in a top knot hair style on occasion.
With his hair not in braids we can identify his hair type as a 2 or 3, this is due to his heritage with his mother being Irish whilst his father being Guyanese.
Today we see Central Cee sporting short curls along with a taper fade on the sides. Whilst he could revert back to braids we imagine he’s going to rock the look for a while!
Use a deep conditioner or hair mask to ensure you lock in the curls!
The curlier your hair, the more additional moisture it requires.
How to Maintain your Braids
Having braids installed is a great feeling as it gives you a new look and confidence. To ensure you maximise your hairs lifeline it’s imperative the proper care and maintenance is applied to your braids. We have provided some tips below to ensure that they stay neat, tidy and clean.
Make sure Braids aren’t too tight
If you experience the pain of tight braids, this is your body informing you they need to be loosened or redone. Not only do tight braids damage your hair but you increase your chances of getting braid bumps and infected follicles which we want to avoid. This could lead to temporary or permanent hair loss, something we want to avoid of course!
Moisturize your scalp
We like to explain it like this, your scalp is an extension of your skin, and therefore it requires hydration and care. A good moisturizing routine helps it keep your hair bouncy, defined and healthy, but most important not dry. Find one best suited for your hair type.
Oil your Scalp
We mostly forget to apply oil on our scalp as were too busy focusing on the ends and length, yet it’s our scalp that hair grows from, therefore an oil routine is super important and non-negotiable.
Protect your hair while sleeping with a Durag
The main purpose of Du-rags and head wraps is to prevent stray hairs from becoming loose or tangled which creates the messy look. Protecting your hair at night keeps it in check.
Ensure you take your Hair out every 6 Weeks
As we mentioned before you’re going to have to ensure you let your hair breathe, then washed and it’s been advised for years that the 6 week mark is the sweet spot.
This is nothing short of good hygiene! Your hair has been exposed to multiple layers of dirt and environmental factors which requires up keep! Wash days are your best friend and it will repay you which shiny, clean hair.
