This week we are focusing strictly on lace wig braids as well as how to keep them fresher for longer without breaking your budget. Ever since lace wig braids made a breakthrough they have been evolving and the different types are now not only limited to twists, you can buy them as box braids, baby braids, carrots and even your straight up or back.

The first item on our list as guided by a self-taught hair consultant from Louis Trichardt currently residing in Polokwane, Khuliso Dongola’s, is eggs. Eggs are high in protein which is vital for the strengthening of hair strands. Applying raw egg to your braids and leaving it on for a few hours before you wash it off, will help with keeping the braids looking brand new.

Secondly, Khuliso says bananas are high in potassium, which is vital for thickening hair and the fatty acids, also help soften the hair and protect the hair’s natural elasticity, preventing split ends and breakage.

Khuliso also mentions avocados. They are nutritious, delicious and have a lot of healthy fat. “Applying avocado oil or meshing avocado will help your braids shine for longer. You can use them as a cheaper alternative to your oil sheen.” She says these home remedies can be used not only for braids but for all types of weaves as well. “You can also use apple cider vinegar and coconut oil for your scalp and dandruff.”
