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:

Amazing product smells great light and not too greasy would definitely use again 😁👍

Review

Products arrived in a timely fashion and well packaged.
The actual product itself is great - my son is mixed heritage with very coarse coils. The honey rain juice detangler and heavens hair milk are both light and not sticky and moistures my sons hair with no excess residue.
The packaging of the products isn’t great - the detangler bottle broke when trying to open it and I had to tip the product into a spray bottle to use it and prevent spillage.
The heavenly milk bottle was only filled up three quarters of the way - product had not been filled to the top which is a real shame. I like to support small independent businesses but feel as customers we should be supported by the business to do that. Maybe I was just unlucky with my order and it wouldn’t stop me ordering again 😁.
I am unable to review the shampoo and conditioner as we haven’t tried them yet. Shampoo does smell amazing on first sniff!

Fir some reason I can’t edit the stars - I would rate this as 3-4 due to packaging issues.

Product quality

Second time ordering from here and I have noticed the packaging has changed with the hair milk. Well mine came with a flat top lid that you press on one side to open. Prior to that I noticed that the milk is a much more runny consistency than before which I am not not pleased with. Also the rain juice when sprayed in my daughters hair. It makes her hair very soapy and bubbly which I cannot understand and also not very happy with. The oil I need to give more time. But based on my experience Im not keen on ordering in a rush...

best de-tangler

Is hands down the best de-tangler we have used for our daughter.

Amazing

Just started using this in in my daughters hair and it is amazing. It’s not heavy very light and keeps the hair smelling great. Her scalp is not dry. Works wonders I will be buying again.
