My 2-Step Hair Care Routine When Wearing Braids

I’ve been rocking kinky twists for 4 weeks. And, I’ve fully enjoyed the freedom from having to style my own hair. Wake up and go? Yup, I could do that with this style. My only concern when wearing twists is keeping my hair clean, conditioned, and moisturized. And, a couple products I’ve been using since last Fall simplified all that down to an easy 2-step process.

I’ve been using the dpHUE Apple Cider Vinegar Hair Rinse as my shampoo and conditioner and the dpHUE Apple Cider Vinegar Leave-In Hair Therapy as my moisturizer. Both products tap into the well-known power of apple cider vinegar for restoring hair health. What I know for sure is when I apply the hair rinse to my scalp using its convenient bottle tip, my scalp is instantly calmed. I mean instantly. I, then, gently allow the product to work through my hair, rinse and done. Shampooed and conditioned in one step.

Braided Hair Care Routine

After towel drying my twists, I lightly spray the leave-in spritz all over my hair for nourishment and shine. The spritz is perfect for adding moisture in-between washes as well. Overall, using the dpHUE hair rinse and leave-in provided the perfect 2-step process for maintaining my twisted style.

I’ve read a lot about the benefits of ACV, but I’ve avoid using it because I’m not a fan of the smell. Fortunately for me, the dpHUE products use a range of essential oils and extracts, including Macadamia seed oil and lavender, that make the products smell pretty good.

Disclosure: I received the dpHUE products free of charge for review purposes.

    How long did it take for you to get your twists? They look beautiful!

      Too long, Darlene! Ha. These twists took about 5 hours. I had a main braider, and she got help from two other braiders in between their clients. I think I’m going to try crochet next time 🙂

    I love that it is only a 2 step process. I have never heard of them I will have to try them out when I get my next protective style!!

      Absolutely, Janel! The hair rinse is my favorite of the two products and is now a staple in my regular hair regimen as well.
