Proper use of hair care products and consistent washing techniques help maintain healthy hair. When washing extensions or braids, consider the type of hairstyle. Consult with your stylist to find out the best way to care for your new extensions and braids. Braids require light touching, washing, and massaging without scrubbing. Extensions need consistent downward brushing and the very light use of after-wash product. The goal for people who use extensions is for the hairstyle to look natural, and the goal for people who have braids is for the hairstyle to look neat and put together.
