Protective style maintenance

Just because we are giving our hair a rest during protective styles it doesn’t mean we forget all about it! Nope… we still need to care for our hair underneath and one of those ways is by Moisturizing our hair… 

I normally moisturize every second day using my DIY moisturizing spritz.  I have tried other braid spray but I find that my hair flourished with my own moisturizing spritz.

And that is my moisturizing spritz that I used to moisturize my hair during a protective style. You will find that the liquids separate when left unattended to long so shake well before every use.
