Hair Care

Hair care tips :-
· Always use a treated elastic hair band like a Blax, Bungee or similar, when you put your hair into a braid or ponytail. This will prevent hair breakage and loss that results from using a plain rubber band.
·Never sleep in a tight braid or ponytail. This practice may cause ongoing hair breakage and/or loss over time.
·Always carefully remove tangles from your hair with a pick or brush before shampooing. This will prevent unnecessary knots and tangles making hair much easier to dry, style and braid.
·If you plan on trying out a brand new hairstyle for a special event (e.g. wedding or prom) always plan to practice several times before the big event arrives. This will guarantee great results.
·Never brush wet hair. This guarantees breakage because hair is most fragile when wet.
·Use a good wide tooth comb or pick or your fingers to untangle your hair as you dry it. Hair should be at least 90-95% dry before brushing.
·Braid your hair while it's still damp and allow hair to aid dry while braided. This will add beautiful waves to the hair when you undo the braids.
