In the article, we explain wh
y scalp care before styling is hugely important, which ingredients help with scalp care and hair growth, How to care for your scalp effectively, and more.
First and foremost
The first and most crucial step in taking care of your scalp while wearing braided twist styles is making sure you prep your hair and scalp before. Prepping your hair and scalp gives you a healthy foundation for the hairstyle you are about to have for an extended period. The same is true for under wigs, weaves, dreads, and more. Remember, your scalp is an extension of your skin, and it needs to be cared for to encourage optimal hair health.
Maintain a cleansing and conditioning regimen
A healthy cleansing and conditioning regimen is vitally important. We recommend using a clarifying shampoo focusing on the roots to remove any dirt/product build-up from your scalp. Try to be as gentle as possible on the scalp when shampooing braids, washing your hair from scalp to ends to prevent frizziness, and keep the protective style.
