Braids & Twists
Twists, knotless braids, feed-in braids or braids to protect the hair under weave/extensions styling — we got you across all generations!
Penetrate, Moisturize and Protect/Seal for Styling (PMP/S Method)
Detangle hair with a penetrating oil. Few oils penetrate the hair follicle well (coconut, babassu, avocado, olive, etc.). Cleanse, hydrate and moisturize hair with Kuza® Jamaican Black Castor Oil Shampoo and Conditioner infused with coconut oil.
When half dry, part hair into sections (one at a time). Put Kuza® Jamaican Black Castor Oil or Kuza® 100% Pure African Shea Butter into the palm of your hand and rub gently and then dab throughout hair to seal in moisture.Note, these Kuza® products are great to moisturize your skin, too.
Twist or Braid
Use sections to create twists or braid styling on completely dry hair. Put Kuza® 100% Indian Hemp Hair & Scalp Treatment on scalp and in hair to begin and end a braid or twist. Take 3 equal strands of hair and weave them over and under each other, starting at your scalp. This is a braid — if done more loosely with 2 or 3 strands, you are creating a twist. If not completely dry, you risk mold and fungus under protective styles.
More Tips and Cover When Sleeping
Kuza® Hair Food with Vitamins A & E is also great for braiding, and if using with coily and/or tightly textured, thicker hair, Kuza® Beeswax Hair and Braid Conditioner adds additional hold for braids and conditioning. Use Kuza® Jamaican Black Castor Oil Conditioning Braid Spray to keep hair moisturized throughout styling daily and as needed. Kuza® Jamaican Black Castor Oil Anti-Breakage Edge Gel lays down edges and hair where needed. Cover hair with a silk or satin scarf to protect when sleeping. Great style for coily, curly and wavy hair textures.
Curly or Wavy: Use dime-size amounts where most dry to not weigh hair down.
Coily and/or Tight Textured, Thick: Use a quarter-size amount, up to a dollop, to cover areas of hair where product is used for styling, but only use minimal product needed.
