    Default New to microbraids

    Ever since Black Panther came out, my friends have been bugging me about dressing up as Shuri for conventions/Halloween. I'm finally giving in and blowing a good chunk of my salary on microbraids (hey, if the lady is going to be dealing with me for 10 hours, the least I can do is pay her what she's worth). The problem is, I've never done this before and I have no idea how to maintain them, what to expect, nothing. Can I still wash my hair once a week? Do I need to put something on my scalp in the meantime? Is it OK if I have a leave in conditioner in my hair before she braids it?

    Hey There!

    I hope you're not paying too much for those micro braids .

    You can wash them, but they probably shouldn't stay in your hair for longer than several weeks (say 7?). You can clean your scalp and oil it. You can moisturize your own hair (and probably should) before getting it done.
