Today’s post is how to prep and braid your hair for when you wear wigs or braid-out style. Let’s start off shampooing the hair in sections; you can do it in four parts which keep your hair nice and organized. For this post, we’re going to use the African pride moisture miracle shampoo. It has coconut oil and honey, and it smells fantastic with none of the bad stuff. This shampoo will give your hair a lot of slip, and it has a nice creamy texture that you might enjoy. Work that into your hair for a shinier and softer look.
Rinse your hair out and twist it up, repeat the same steps within the rest of the sections. Move on to the next section; unravel your hair, saturate it with water, and shampoo. Take your time doing that. Once you’re done go ahead and twist that section back up. Sectioning the hair is a great method for those with long hair. We’re going to keep thesea sections for the whole process.
Use a soft towel or a clean t-shirt to gently pat your hair, while keeping it in the same section. Use the Moroccan red clay and shea butter detox and soften heat-activated masque, this mask is super thick a little bit goes a long way. This hair masque is a detoxifying and a restorative clay mask that uses clarifying benefits of the Moroccan red clay to remove impurities and product buildup in your hair. It also has shea butter which helps to replenish, moisturize, and tame any frizz that you might have.
Apply a little of the shea butter to and inside each section. Be sure you apply it from the root to the ends and make sure you don’t miss any spot. If you apply this just on the surface, you’re not going to penetrate the inside of your section. Twist your hair up and spread it on the rest of your hair.
Use a plastic cap and sit underneath a hooded bonnet for about 15 minutes with heat. When the African pride heated bonnet is used it works wonders. Rinse the hair out. Once you’re done rinsing your hair, make sure you deep condition with heat. Your hair should feel like butter, soft, and fluffi. Your curls should be moisturized and have minimum frizz which is a plus.
