YES, YES...moisturize your braids as you would your hair. Moisture helps the hair remain pliable and prevents breakage. Breakage is sometimes the downfall of having braids. My routine is very simple. About every two days I get out the water bottle, Jane Carter Leave In Conditioner, and Jane Carter Nourish and Shine Butter and I go to work. I release the braids from any rubberband and allow them to flow freely. I start with the water bottle and I give a good spray all over my head until the dry feeling is gone but not so much that my hair is dripping wet. I shake my hair and then spray my entire head with the leave in conditioner to infuse some much needed nutrients into the braids and freshen them up a bit. Lastly I take a nice helping of the Nourish and Shine butter and go through the braids, greasing my scalp and moisturizing the hair. The butter gives my hair a nice healthy sheen. Every bodies braids and moisture routine is different but this one gives you a good glimpse into what this supernatural does! ~~ Up, up, up and away!
