hey, i just came across your blog and i must say is very helpful and useful. I just started transitioning to natural from relaxed. is there any tips you can give me about what to do to my hair. I'll be braiding it through out the process, is it safe to wash my hair when is braided? and i tend to get flaks and dandruff do you have any suggestions or any oil to use to keep my scalp healthy through out the process? Thank you
It depends what kind of braids you are getting. If you get plaits, you can wash your hair, you just have to be careful because it can make your hair style look old. But, you can use Witch Hazel instead to cleanse your scalp or Tea Tree oil for cleansing and this oil is also good to fight dandruff and promotes a healthy scalp.
