Choose a sulfate-free shampoo
Sulfates are harsh surfactants that can strip your hair of its natural oils, leaving it completely dry and brittle. Before washing, double-check your shampoo’s ingredient list to make sure it doesn’t contain sodium lauryl/laureth sulfate. If it *contains* sulfates, add one of the options below to your cart and use that instead.
Protect your edges
There is nothing better than styling your baby hair flawlessly. But remember: These hairs are delicate, so always make sure to rinse out your edge control product at the end of the day to avoid build-up and breakage.
Amp Up The Shine
No one wants boring, lifeless braids. The easiest way to give them a quick refresh? Revitalize your look with a bit of shine-enhancing oil gloss.
Protect your style while you sleep
There’s no better/easier way to make sure your braids last than by wrapping them in a silk wrap or hood every night before bed.
