  • Wash once a week, use only shampoo as conditioners can make it easier for the braids to come undone, in addition they are more difficult to remove and if residue remains they can cause dandruff and itchiness.
  • Avoid sleeping with wet braids, synthetic and wool ones take even longer to dry so the aid of a dryer is ideal
  • When sleeping, wear a shower cap, this will help prevent the braid from coming undone and also prevent frizz.
