Protective Hairstyle Maintenance

braids

Cooler seasons lean more towards protective styles. But it's important to care for your natural hair underneath too. Here are some tips on caring for your protective hairstyles and your natural hair underneath. 

Also, we apologise that our stock is low! Please bear with us as we top up on products.

We also have our Back To School event coming up soon. We will keep you updated with some news on this soon! 

1. Wigs - Moisturise your wig regularly. Human hair wigs, specifically, need more moisturising than synthetic hair, especially if it's a kinkier texture. Treat it like your own hair! It’s not just a hat that you throw on- it must be cared for. You can use our Honey-Rain juice for moisturising your wig. Maybe invest in a polystyrene head to keep it in a safe place too.

2. Braids –You can also use our Honey Rain Juice to spray and moisturise your braids. Use a natural oil too to help prevent dandruff throughout the duration of wearing the hairstyle.

3. Wash -It's still important to cleanse your hair whilst in a protective style to keep your scalp fresh and room to breathe, and help prevent product build-up. We would recommend you cowash your hair at least once a week whilst in a protective hairstyle. You should also wash your wig and braids for the duration of the time you wear them. If you have braids in, you can get a spray bottle that contains shampoo and spray it on your scalp and roots of the braids and gently moving it throughout the braids. You can wash the soap out gently with a showerhead. 

4. Protect your hair at night- Whether you take off your wig when sleeping, or you have braids installed, remember to always wrap your hair in a silk or satin headscarf/bonnet. Alternatively, you can get a pillowcase with the same material. This is because cotton sucks out the moisture of your hair, whereas satin or silk helps keep the moisture in your hair.

Here's is a braid wash routine:

Definitely repurchasing!

Extremely good product, moisturises very well and isn't dry the next day like some products. Also a little goes a very long way and so it is fairly priced. I can see and feel it working with my natural hair texture, cleared out over 20 products and replaced with this one. It has good hold so is good for styling aswell

Amazing!!

I am so impressed with this product it doesn't leave behind any build up of product residue in my child's hair like other products. It de-tangles very well, has a non toxic non overpowering scent and I love the fact that it's natural. I've ordered two bottles so far and disposed of the other products I was using. After educating myself about edc's in black hair products switching ti this this was a no brainer and I can actually visually see that the product works along with my child's hair which is lighter and not so greasy. The product was shipped so quickly after ordering and the customer service has been outstanding. Thank you so much for all your hard work producing this product that has been designed with black hair health in mind. I've been recommending this product to my friends

Best detangler I have found

Such an effective detangler that brings my daughters girls back to life. Lightweight and not sticky like other products I have tried

Amazing keeps my hair so hydrated and curls in place

This is the best spray leave in I've ever used. Sal kindly gifted me one to try and I've bought 2 more since. Even my sister bought one. It really works well in our hair. I have long tailbone length thick 4a 3c hair and this light weight product is amazing. Along with the quench cream. Perfect formula. I'd love to one day see Root2tip on the store shelves!

LOVE LOVE LOVE!

I first came across this product in a glossy box a few years back and fell in love with it, so I had to come and get the full size. It makes my hair feel soooo soft, completely moistures it and is very easy to use. The spray nozzle is great and distributes a lot of product. Definitely a staple for my hair.
