Hello everyone this is Breanna Rutter author of the book the natural hair Bible and founder of for these special videos I love to answer all of the questions you all send me via email so if you have any questions that you will like for me to answer be sure to check out the description box below for additional information so without further ado with going to get right on into the video in this video is a because of question I received from could Katecia emailed me because she wants to know if it's possible that she can wash her hair was cornrow braids and how she can actually do that if it is possible something to give you some tips to what you want to do to wash your hair to keep it healthy moisturized and beautiful as you wearing your install so the first tip that I want to give you is that when you are watching your hair you want to make sure that all of your product are diluted I do get this question a lot about how to actually wash her hair in different types of extensions and the same thing applies all across the board for sew ins braids and twists the specifically because you want me to answer how you can wash your hair cornrow braids some few things it is going to be tweaked to make sure that your hair won't be frizzy and is still want to be clean and moisturizers as you are wearing your install so far as when you want to do is dilute of the products that you're going to be using as you washing your hair when you are shampooing your hair you always want to follow up with rinse your hair through with conditioner to help give you that extra moisture and to just help balance some moisture back into your hair as well so for that you want to use applicator bottle and diluted with some water in shampoo to squirt along the parts of your hair you really want to focus on making sure that you work primarily on your scalp because if you're not washing your hair it will eventually lead to dandruff as you build up a lot of dead skin cells that will grow and flake and things like that so as you dilute your applicator bottle would shampoo I'll suggest that you use about two parts water, part shampoo or little more or less depending on the consistency of you shampoo you just want it liquid enough so that way it can really go for your braids to run along your scalp without leaving build up and having to wash out a lot of thick shampoo such as you squirt it along your parts just use the pads of your fingers and gently rub and massage through the parts and just massage along your hair line and along the parts of your hair to clean any debris product buildup or just the clean your scalp generally so after that you want to follow up with diluting your conditioner in an applicator bottle squirting it all along your braids in your parts run your fingers do to really make sure it's getting all for your hair and then make sure to rinse out really well that's why it’s important that you dilute your shampoo and conditioner so that when you do your final rinse you know you don’t have a lot of shampoo still stuck on the ends of your braids or a lot of conditioner still caught around the edges of your hair line so after that you want to make sure to towel dry your hair until it's about 60% dry and then lubricate your hands with oil and run them all longer parts and along your braids to further lock in that moisture by rubbing some oil over your parts and your braids this slows down the process of water evaporating from your scalp and hair which is how you keep your hair moisturize another tip that you can incorporate as well is that when you towel dry your hair when it's about 60% dry you can make sure to oil your hair as one of my longer parts in the braids and then put on a spandex cap and further blow-dry your hair the rest of the way now the spandex cap The only thing that it does is that it prevents your hair from freezing so depending on how old your style is already your some of your hair may be starting to come out of the look so if you put a spandex cap on partially dry hair and continue to dry the rest of the way with a blow dryer or a bonnet dryer it will keep your hair very lay down really flat so that you don't have any problem with frizzing so it's super possible to wash her hair cornrow braids just like it is for box braids or Senegalese twist or even sewins as well you just want to alter things just a little bit more like putting on a spandex cap To keep your hair from becoming frizzy so I’m glad you sent me that question I’m glad I can help you and I hope this has helped all of you are watching as well and before you go make sure to sign up for my email is to be automatically entered for any giveaways that I do and to receive exclusive content so until then I'll see you all in my next video
