I’m 12 weeks post relaxer and I have had braids for three weeks. Things are going well and my braids still look decent. I have washed the braids three times since I got them installed. I have also kept up with daily moisturising using braid spray and weekly application of T444Z to the scalp. The braids have now loosened and I am now able to style them. It’s been very hot lately in Pretoria so I often put the braids in a bun to keep them off my face and neck.
The pic above shows what I mentioned in a previous post that you should try not to have too many braids on your hairline (especially if your hairline is weak). It’s gentler on the hair.
I have five more weeks to go with braids before I remove them. I don’t miss my hair yet!
