Braiding is stylish but we all know that it comes with a lot of maintenance.  Whether you are a career woman, a student or you just like to look great all the time, Darling Hair wants to help you maintain that look.


Maintaining your hair extensions and styles is not easy especially when you have a sensitive scalp. Often you find yourself doing the weave pat or scratching all day and it just doesn’t let up. To alleviate the itches and make your protective styling experience more enjoyable here are some tips from Darling Hair:


Massage for a healthy scalp:

Massaging your scalp can help relieve problems such as dandruff. First, wash your hair with dandruff-fighting shampoo, which rejuvenates your hair and scalp. Massage the shampoo into your scalp for a minute or two to help loosen dead skin cells and increase circulation.


Shampoo hair:

Maintaining a healthy scalp starts with shampooing. Shampooing is the easiest and most effective way to clean your scalp and keep it healthy. The shampooing action invigorates follicles, reduces the excessive sebum buildup that can lead to dandruff and oiliness, and prevents excess skin from accumulating on the scalp.

Make small changes to your everyday lifestyle: 

Besides using the right products, eating well and getting regular exercise are two things that can help you maintain a healthy scalp. Bad nutrition has been shown to have a negative impact on hair quality and may even cause hair loss. Try foods with Omega-3 fatty acids that promote hair growth by keeping your scalp healthy.

Don’t use too much product

You definitely don’t want to skip out on moisturizing your hair. You want to avoid piling too much product on your scalp as this can make the itches even worse. Concentrate your efforts on moisturising your hair by spritzing with water or a water based product.

Although braid extensions can be a great protective styling option for those who are transitioning from relaxed to natural, looking to retain more length, in need of a beauty break or just looking for a fresh fashion fix. It is important, however, to keep in mind that your real hair still needs to be taken care of underneath.
