Everyone loves a good hair braid. They are the perfect way to keep your hair out of your face and can be styled in countless ways. But what happens when you want to take them out? How do you maintain your hair braids so that they stay healthy and looking good? Here are a few tips.




Start with clean hair. Whether you are putting your hair braids in for the first time or taking them out, it is important to start with clean hair. This will help to prevent any buildup on your scalp or in your hair braids that could lead to breakage. Wash your hair with a mild shampoo and conditioner before getting started.


Be gentle when brushing. When you have your hair braids in, it is important to be gentle when brushing through them. Use a wide-toothed comb or your fingers to slowly work through any knots or tangles. Be especially careful when near the roots of your hair braids to avoid any pulling or tugging that could lead to breakage.


Keep them moisturized. Just like the rest of your hair, your hair braids need to be kept moisturized to prevent breakage and split ends. Use a light leave-in conditioner or natural oil like coconut oil to keep them hydrated. Avoid using anything too heavy as this could weigh down your braids and cause them to loosen over time.
