What's the best thing to do after you've taken out braids
- Relaxing just after undoing your braids OR treating your hair and then relaxing it?
Braids are very beautiful for winter as they are easy to wear but while you have them on your scalp and hair is not breathing properly. It is not advisable to immediately relax your hair after removing your braids as your pores are still opened and that can result in your scalp burning. Please try and give yourself a home treatment by shampooing and conditioning, include in your treatment a hair repair product.
