Safety and maintenance tips for African hair

  • Make sure your stylist doesn't hold your child's hair very tight because this could cause headaches or breakage.
  • Adding a bit of extension might make your child's hair last longer, but these styles are still okay without extension.
  • Make sure she wears a shower cap when she showers.
  • To keep moisture in her scalp, use an anti-itch scalp oil that will keep her scalp fresh.
  • Before loosening her weaves, make sure you spray some leave-in spritz to keep her hair from breaking off.

Whichever hairstyle you decide to go with, be sure to take into account your child's hair type and her ability to sit still for the duration of the weaving.
