Protective hairstyles such as braids or twists are a great way to retain the hair's natural glow, an easy updo during the summer, or even a fashionable method to take your mind off from daily styling and combing.
This, however, does not mean you do not need to take care of your scalp. Contrary to that, braided or twisted hair requires as much care as natural hair, especially when it comes to your scalp.
