|After washing my braids
This past week, I washed my braids. I was using the Motions Oil Sheen spray because I didn't have any other spray= bad move :-(. There was so much build up, and my scalp was itchy. I brought the African Royale braid spray and that works really well for me. I washed my hair (in the shower) with the Creme of Nature Red Clover & Aloe Soothing Shampoo. I massaged the shampoo on my edges and in between my parts without disturbing the braids too much.
I only had the braids in for a little over a week, so they were still tight. I massaged the shampoo on the extensions while holding the ends avoid my hair pulling too much. Then, I rinsed my hair. I let the water beat between my parts to remove any shampoo or and/or buildup. Afterwards, I applied Garnier Sleek & Shine conditioner to my hair (which started to feel very soft) ; I put my hair in ponytail and let it sit for about 10 minutes.
After washing the conditioner out, I blotted my braids with a towel and applied the Africa's Best Organics Olive-Oil Leave-In Conditioner. I read online that I could have deep conditioned my hair with the braids in. I know for next time...
I applied Coconut Oil to my hair and scalp and let my hair air dry. In the morning I applied the African Royale braid spray to my hair and scalp. I was very happy with the results... still neat and no more itching :-)
