The Products You Need
1. Large cotton hairbands - for a low snag ponytail at night time.
2.A large silk headscarf-To wear at night or when lounging to avoid unnecessary friction that can cause protective styles to roughen.
3.A silk pillowcase -Double protection. Y'all already know the noblest hair-care happens at night.
4.Frizzease Leave-in Conditioner - Hydration is key! Lightly spritz your locs in the morning with a water-based leave-in conditioner, we recommend Frizzease.
5. A silicone-based conditioner - Tresemme is our go-to, but other drug-store brands like Pantene or Herbal Essences will also work wonders. For synthetic hair, it's better to avoid natural-based products.
If you have a known allergy to synthetic hair or have a sensitive scalp then it's recommended to do a quick ACV rinse of the locs before you install. See protective guru, Whitney White (@naptural85) ACV tutorial.
After your ACV rinse, follow up with a silicon-based condition to restore moisture. Make sure you AIR DRY! no heat is to be used.
Protect Your Natural Crown
Although your new crown is light as a feather, it's key to prepare your natural hair before a protective-style install to ensure minimum breakage and maximum moisture retention.
*Beautiful before. Beautiful after.*

Prioritize Wash Day
You've installed like a pro, and now it's time for wash day.
We recommend within the first 3-5 days of install to wash the locs with a silicone-based conditioner, we recommend Tresemme (avoid natural-based products.)
All of our locs are entirely durable to wash regularly; and for this particular style, we highly recommend washing weekly.
