DO shampoo and condition your hair as often as necessary, particularly if you work out and perspire heavily. DO purchase and use products recommended by your stylist.
Always shampoo and condition hair before putting on a braid. If you have a processed hair, ensure hair is in good condition before you put on extension so as not to cause more damage to the hair. If it is virgin afro hair, add moisturisers to the hair to allow for easy combing and braiding.
