Here Are 5 Things You Should Know About Braids.

You should know that braids are one of the finest hairstyle you can get. and it does not only make you look gorgeous but it also maintains your hair if it is handled by a professional.

It doesn't really matter the season or when the hair is braided,what matters most is how it looks on you. If it's your first time trying braids,you may not know what to expect until the work is over.The entire experience begins from choosing the perfect braid extensions and sitting for a long time with a Hairdresser,Who makes sure that you pick  stunning appearance.

There are many hair stylists but it is not every stylist that can handle your braid the way you want it.with that in mind,you must do your homework well before going for your hair braiding.

So here are 5 things you should know.

1.Do A Quick Search On The Hairdresser

The internet is all you need to do a search on a stylist.Unfortunately,in Africa,most braiding salons are without online influence.This is another task for you.However social media can be your friend,especially Instagram.

2. Choose A Style Before Your Appointment

Before you think of getting your hair done at the salon,make sure you have the right hairstyle,It may be challenging for you to start thinking of the hairstyle you need at the salon.If you have bough your extension,you should let your stylist know before hand.It is easy to choose between synthetic or human hair,all you need to do is ask questions before buying.Even tho some ladies leave the extensions to the stylist they can trust to get the best for them.

3.You Shouldn't Braid After Relaxing

Relaxing your hair before you get your braids done is not advisable because your hair must have been stretched and altered the pH balance.You should wait about a week after relaxing to get your braids

4.The Braids Shouldn't Be So Tight

If braids you made are tight on you,it would cause hair breakage.The hair may even not look good if it  is too tight on you.Tight braids may give you the instant face lift but it is going to cause havoc on your hair.

5.Regular Maintenance

There is this misconception that people have while wearing braids that they do not need regular maintenance on their hair,Remember your scalp must be moisturized and clean because if you don't do that,you may end up having excessive breakage.
