How I Care For My Braids & Weaves

I’ve gotten a lot of questions on how I care for my hair beneath braids/twists and weaves, although I have no strict regimen for that, I’ll try  to be as detailed as possible in this post. Before I got the Dark and Lovely Braids n Weaves hair care line (which was an answer to a silent prayer), my regimen consisted mostly of just spraying with water and oiling, I tried getting dry shampoos over here because sometimes I just don’t want to get your braids/weaves wet from shampooing/washing with water, the closest I got to a dry shampoo was Batiste from Jumia and it didn’t work well with my hair. I’ve used the Dark and Lovely range and it does exactly what I want it to do.

Left – Right;

  1. Dark and Lovely Braids’n Weaves Scalp wash
  2. Dark and Lovely Braids’n Weaves S.O.S Hairline
  3. Dark and Lovely Braids’n Weaves Hair Refresher + Anti – Odour
  4. Dark and Lovely Braids’n Weaves Scalp Soother + Anti-itch.

Weekly

  • Divide the braids/weave into smaller sections.
  • Apply Dark and Lovely dry scalp wash, massage with a soft cloth to remove dirt.
  • Spritz scalp lightly with water and olive oil mixed in a spray bottle.
  • Apply Dark and Lovely Scalp Soother + Anti- Itch to scalp
  • Spritz scalp and hair with Dark and Lovely Hair Refresher + Anti-odour
  • Style.

Daily

  • Apply Dark and Lovely S.O.S Hairline to my edges.
  • Spritz Scalp and Braids/Weaves with Dark and Lovely Hair Refresher + Anti-odor.

Every Other Day

  • Spritz lightly with water/oil mixed in a spray bottle
  • Apply Shea butter to scalp.

  1. Do you have itchy scalp?
    Did the anti-itch relieve you?
    I got a braid spray and it doesn’t do much to help the itching.
    Lol so sorry for my million questions.

    1. I do not have itchy scalp, I use this as a precaution, this one has an applicator so you’re sure it’s getting directly on the scalp, I’m not sure if that would work as well with a spray. Your million questions are welcome anytime, highlight queen ✨
