DO OIL YOUR SCALP FREQUENTLY
Because your scalp will be exposed to the winter weather, it’s important to keep it lubricated. Ward off dryness and flakes with a hot oil massage every other day. I recommend pouring warm extra virgin olive oil & a couple drops of tea tree oil into a spray bottle– it’s the easiest way to oil your whole scalp and it feels. Awesome.

DO SWITCH IT UP
There are a million and one styles you can do with box braids– don’t be afraid to try them out! Google pictures of your favorite braided beauties & go wild. As an added bonus, changing up your hair will also lessen the stress from the weight of the extensions being styled the exact same way for weeks on end.
