Center Stage: A from Mainly Braids

We’ve been on a bit of a blogging hiatus as of late, at least when in comes to posting, but behind the scenes we’ve been hard at work. Did you notice the new look? We’ve moved to WordPress! So, let us know…do you like it? Love it? Hate it? We want your suggestions.

Now, we are back with a Center Stage Feature from A, just one of the cuties, from the creative blog Mainly Braids. Blogger Shay share’s some exclusive photo’s of her daughter A and their natural hair care tips with us!!

Routine: We don’t really have a set routine, we kind of just go with the flow. When she has cornrows I wash it the day I put them in. When she has in mini braids or mini twist I start them on freshly washed hair as well, but I don’t wash her hair the entire time she wears them. She has dry scalp and her scalp always looks so great after a month of not washing. I try not to let her wear her hair out often so we don’t have a long detangling process.

Favorite Products: I just recently purchased Laila Ali’s shampoo and conditioner and so far I love it for myself but haven’t tried it on her yet. For styling I love using ecostyler gel and coconut oil.

Tips/Advice: Don’t be afraid to just listen to the hair and try new things. I’ve read so many “tips and tricks” online that just don’t work for us so sometimes I have to invent my own.
