Washing Braids with Extensions

Hey Curlies,
I have been fighting myself for the last week to not wash my hair. Today has been a little over two weeks since I've gotten my box braids done and washed before the process. I finally decided to wash because classes start tomorrow and I know I will have no time.

Here's what I did:

  • Once the bottles were filled with both product and water, I shook them to mix the contents
  • I wet my hair and then squeezed the diluted shampoo only on to my scalp then very lightly massaged
  • Rinsed then did the same routine with the conditioner
  • I then blow-dried the ends a little
I did not deep condition, just because I do not feel like it is as effective as doing it on loose hair. I will definitely follow up with one after my braids are out.

I did wash my hair in the kitchen this time because the sprayer attached to the sink is very powerful at removing buildup.

I normally do not flip my hair over in the sink because it causes lots of detangling and other issues. For more on this click here. Since I currently do not have to worry about detangling, this worked great.
