I’ve been in braids for just over four weeks now. I plan on removing them in the first week of September when I will have had them for eight weeks. I’ve kept up my usual routine when in braids – weekly washing, applying oil on scalp weekly and daily moisturising with braid spray.
It also happens to be 36 weeks since my last relaxer. The new growth isn’t bothering me right now because of the braids. Will see how it goes when I take the braids out. I’m also already thinking about what to do when the braids come out. I will definitely go for two weeks or so with my hair out to give it some tlc before deciding what to do next, maybe another protective style perhaps!
