How do I stop my braids going Fluffy?
Use A Pomade Or Gel. Once your hair is parted correctly and sectioned off, technique and products are essential. Brooklyn-based hairstylist and owner of MyTresses salon, Simone Cremona, tells Refinery29 that the easiest way to prevent frizz is by using pomade or gel while you braid.
Why do braids get fuzzy?
“If your parts aren’t perfect and your hairs are crossing between braids, you are more susceptible to those pieces becoming frizzy,” she says. Be sure to tie hair that isn’t being touched away to avoid additional pieces getting mixed in during braiding, too.
How do you keep braids from getting frizzy overnight?
Wrap a scarf around your braids before you go to sleep. Use a large, 40 by 40 in (100 by 100 cm) piece of fabric to completely cover your braids, which can prevent unwanted friction and frizziness in your hair overnight. You can also use a “sock-style” scarf, which goes over your braids like a sock or pillowcase.

Do knotless braids get frizzy fast?
Though they do get rusty more quickly than regular box braids, they can last between four to six weeks or more depending on how well I take care of them. Here’s how I maintain knotless box braids using a few products that clean, moisturize, and tame frizz to keep my braids looking neat!
What is the white foam they put on braids?
The most popular is a styling foam by a brand called Nairobi foaming lotion. The product is a favourite among many because it adds volume to hair and often provides both conditioning and hold, without any clumps or build-up and it stiffens the hair as well, meaning it helps it hold the shape for much longer.
What should I do to my hair before getting braids?
To prepare your hair for braids, I would suggest doing a strong protein treatment followed by a moisturizing one at least twice before even thinking about braiding your hair. You want to make sure your strands and scalp are clean before getting started. Use a clarifying shampoo to remove any excess product or residue.
Should you braid hair wet or dry?
“ Don’t braid your hair wet because it will be too heavy,” says stylist Kayley Pak of John Barrett Salon. “When your hair is wet, it extends at least 15 times more than when it is dry. You don’t want to weaken or break your hair.”
Is it good to sleep with your hair in a braid?
There’s always a natural release of moisture from your hair, and while you sleep it goes into the air or gets absorbed by your pillow. But braids can help prevent that loss. The overlapping structure of braids can hold onto the moisture and can keep it where it needs to be, in your strands.
