Protect your mane

During protective styling, your hair takes a break and grows freely. Don’t forget to keep your hair moisturised during this period, it can be easy to forget and that will make it easy for your hair to break.

Never let your hair go dry

Here are some tips on a spritz mixture that will make it easy for your hair to stay hydrated.
