How to Wash Protective Braid Styles This Summer

Discovering Natural
Hi Naturals, 

With the weather being so hot and people taking vacations and needing their hair to not turn from a defined twistout to an Afro in the humid weather, doing styles like crochet twists and braids is an excellent alternative! However, many people feel like they cannot wash their hair while in these styles. I feel that it is crucial to do so. “Out of a healthy scalp, comes healthy hair”... right?

I’ve always loved braids because they were easy and convenient. But, I would get bored after a few weeks of having them because they were one dimensional. I started working as a teenager and in some places of employment, they were even considered unprofessional. And now that I look back, regardless of how insensitive that perception could be, I can see how it may have appeared that way.

With the styles available now, there’s no need to stress over a lack of choices or looking like a misfit in any setting.
