Crochet Braids | How To Care For FreeTress GoGo Curl

FreeTress GoGo Curl Crochet Braids

Whether you are keeping this style for 2 weeks as a filler-style or for 4-6 weeks as a long-term protective style, it is important to continue to care for your natural hair and your crochet hair. Here is what I do to care for my hair when I wear crochet braids:

Cleanse My Natural Hair

When I feel my scalp getting itchy or I see flakes on my scalp, I bring out my Apple Cider Vinegar Rinse!

I separate my crochet braids into 4 buns, so I can easily reach my scalp and my braids. I either spray or use an applicator bottle to ease this mixture and massage for about 5 minutes, to loosen up the product buildup or flakes. Then I wipe my scalp with a warm wash cloth.

I do not rinse my hair with water...I do not want to drench my braiding foundation. My hair smells like a pickled salad for only 30 minutes.

I do not waste my time cleansing my crochet braids.

This step is the simplest! Once my scalp and hair are clean, I add light mist and light oil to my natural hair and scalp. Then I lightly massage my scalp for a few minutes. This leaves my scalp feeling very good!

The great thing about this regimen is that I don't use a lot of product on my braiding foundation, other using a light mist and an oil. So a full wash and rinse regimen is not necessary for full cleansing.

Natural hair says: The best way to find the hair for you is to continue to try different kinds of brands and products. Do your research and try them for yourself.

Always Desire Your Natural,
