How To Care For Your Braids on Wash Day

While protective styling we are able to postpone wash day a little longer. But when it is time to wash our tresses, we want to keep things as simple and as easy as possible.
Once braids are submerged in water they can become very heavy, therefore it is best to first wash your scalp out of the shower. Using a spray bottle mixed with water and a little shampoo (sulphate free is best) will allow easy access to your scalp. You don't have to put the shampoo on the length of your braids as the lather it creates will be sufficient enough to run down and cleanse the rest of your braids. Or if you're not one for shampoo, why not try and ACV rinse Apple Cinder Vinegar rinse.
Now to condition or not to condition, that is the question. Or maybe skip the conditioning process and add a leave - in instead? Do curlies even condition let alone deep condition while protective styling on wash day? Conditioning is a step of adding moisture back into our strands after the shampooing process. Smoothing the hairs cuticles resulting in shiny and hydrated hair. Deep conditioning goes ones step further by also helping to reduce breakage and repairing the hairs cuticle. I guess it is all about preference whether you choose to condition or not. But using a rinse out conditioner will add protection and moisture to the hair within the braids.
Moisturising and sealing is the last step to a successful wash day while protective styling. After part drying, using a liquid leave - in will add in more moisture. Our Jasmine Oasis Hydrating Hair Mist is the perfect solution for dry, dehydrated hair and refreshing your braids throughout the week.
Hydrate thirsty hair with a botanically active fusion of floral essences: Organic Rose Flower Water, Aloe Vera and bioactive flower oils of Lavender, Jasmine and Sandalwood. Hair transforms from dry and brittle to instantly softened with a therapeutic spritz to activate your kinks & coils daily.
Unlike spraying hair with tap water or hard water which contain chlorine and various metal minerals, this botanical mist moisturises your curls the way nature intended. Your hair generously receives all the potent benefits, without build up from additional synthethic additives.

Perfect for removing build up!

I use a lot of quite heavy products on my hair so suffer from build up. Once a month I use this product to deeply cleanse my curls, it clears all traces of buildup whilst keeping my hair super hydrated. I would recommend it to anyone! My advice when using this product: follow the instructions on the bottle exactly, and maybe add a little apple cider vinegar if you’re looking for an extra deep cleanse.

A MUST FOR CURLS!

My hair loved this cleanser. But I will use it at most once a month, I think that's enough. Absolutely rinse it very well, do a deep conditioning afterwards and maintain.

This leave-in DELIVERS!

I've been using their Rose & Honey Milk Leave in for about 2 weeks now and couldn't wait to review it! My favourite kind of products are the ones that say NO to all the nasty synthetic ingredients but still DELIVER! This Leave-in does just that! What a powerful combo of botanical products that work incredibly well together. Minimal protein (I count one) for the sensitive and plenty humectants and sealants for amazing moisture! It spreads well and is super light weight and easy to absorb. I hate leave-ins that sit on my fine hair so this is perfect for my curls! It smells like roses, but not that fake rose smell... like ACTUAL ROSES So natural!!! Ive used it for about 4 washes and every time my curls have come out soft and moisturised and held up for a few days in this blistering heat!! .
Absolutely recommend this one.

Great oil for my hair

Great oil for my hair and scalp. Does exactly what it says!
