We’ve all seen the receding hair lines and the thinning hair on the crown. This can be caused by tension on the scalp caused tight braids and heavy extensions pulling on the hair, over manipulation of delicate curly textured hair repeatedly braiding twisting and locking, and not letting air and blood circulate to the scalp and keeping the scalp clean and healthy.

1) Keep Hair and Scalp Clean!!! It amazes me how many ladies think they don’t need to wash and cleanse their hair as often while wearing protective styles. I know part of it comes from wanting to keep hair from frizzing, loosing etc. While wearing extensions, choosing the right hair and style and making sure it is washed before installing will alleviate this concern but the fact of the matter is…your scalp and the hair on your head still needs to be cleansed to stay healthy!

Yamoni Satin Silk Shampoo and Conditioner is great for protective styles as it gently but effectively cleanses the scalp and smoothes the hair while removing dirt debris and disinfects the scalp to help prevent dandruff and other bacterial and odor causing infections. If you’re a braid or lock wearer you must have a bottle of the ACV rinse that gets down in scalp and hair to lift away buildup leaving scalp tingly clean and hair refreshed!
