How to have the perfect plaits this December!

Social media has been buzzing since the beginning of this month, December 2016, with everyone using the #hashtag ‘’Ke December Boss’’ (It’s December Boss).

Since it’s December, we are bound to see many women and men probably, heading to salons to get their heads plaited.

But here’s the thing, many people believe that the tighter the plaits, the longer they will last and the better they look – this is false.

Plaits or braids should not be uncomfortable or too tight. According to Drum, this could cause hair loss and alopecia.

Below are 6 tips on how to have the prefect plaits:

1: Before plaiting your hair, take care of issues like dandruff and weak hair two weeks in advance. Make sure your hair is in the best possible shape.

2: If one has light and layered hair, it is best to plait the hair when damp or slightly wet. It helps to catch all the loose ends.

3: We understand that DIY is always the best option to get things done, but if one is not able to plait their own hair, it is always wise to consult a professional.

4: When adding an extra piece of synthetic hair to your plaits, make sure you don’t put a large hair extension on a small patch of hair.

5: After taking the plaits out give your hair a break.

6: With plaits always make sure that the scalp never gets dry by applying oil around the edges.
