How To Take Care of Your Hair Under Protective Styles Ft. Girl+Hair

I often get asked how I take care of my hair under my protective styles. Well the secret is finally out. After using Girl + Hair Complete Hair Care Kit-1 for two months I am finally letting you guys in on how amazing these products are.  I absolutely adore Girl + Hair Under Hair Care Line.

Last February I cut 4 inches of my hair off and since then I’ve been wearing protective styles.

I haven’t been taking care of my hair like I should. These past few months after receiving Girl + Hair I’ve seen a difference in my curls and my scalp. I wear a lot of protective styles but underneath is a head full of curls.

Girl+Hair (@GirlandHair) started in 2009 when Founder, Dr. Camille Verovic, sought out to find healthy products to care for her natural hair after her “big chop”. In this blog post I will walk you through how I take care of my hair on wash day. My protective style is usually 5 to 7 braids under my wig.


“sulfate free, paraben free and alcohol free”

I absolutely love this shampoo and if you’re anything like me and you don’t wash your hair as often then this shampoo is specially for you. It gets all the dirt and gunk out of your hair. It is a gentle sulfate, alcohol, and paraben free shampoo created with shea butter. It thoroughly cleanses your natural hair and deliver ultimate moisture to thirsty hair follicles.

According to the website this shampoo is specially designed for curly, kinky, or coily hair types. There are so many shampoo’s out on the market but this shampoo caters to us women who love wearing protective styles. I can honestly tell you that a little bit goes a long way. I have super thick curly hair and this shampoo worked wonders on my hair.


Wet natural or relaxed hair and extensions. Use applicator tip to apply cleanser directly to the scalp, lather, and rinse.

 Water (Aqua), Sodium C14-16 Olefin Sulfonate, Decyl Glucoside, Polyquaternium-7, Butylene Glycol, Menthol, PEG 8 Dimethicone, Fragrance (Parfum), Guar Hydroxypropyltrimonium Chloride, Sodium EDTA, Methylchloroisothiazolinone (and) Methylisothiazolinone, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract, Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf Oil, Melia Azadirachta (Neem) Seed Oil, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Citric Acid, Citronellol, Lilial, Linalool, Limonene


With naturally coily and kinky hair, it can be super tough retaining moisture when washing. After washing my hair I  used the leave in conditioner which is made with Shea Butter and has 200% more conditioning ingredients than other conditioners. The NOURISH+ nourishing leave in conditioner is sulfate free, paraben free, and alcohol free. Like the shampoo this conditioner is specially designed for curly, kinky, or coily hair types. This leave in conditioner left my hair feeling very silky and moisturized. This is probably my favorite product from this line. I drizzled some of the conditioner in my hand and then worked my way through my hair. I usually section off my hair in four and work my way though.


Use applicator tip to apply and work the leave-in conditioner into damp, towel dried natural or relaxed hair underneath hair extensions.

Water (Aqua), Dicetyldimonium Chloride, Behentrimonium Methosulfate (and) Cetyl Alcohol (and) Butylene Glycol, Propylene Glycol, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Dimethicone, Cetyl Alcohol, Propylene Glycol (and) Diazolidinyl Urea (and) Iodopropynyl Butylcarbamate, Shea Butter Ethyl Esters, Guar Hydroxypropyltrimonium Chloride, Ceteareth 20, Fragrance (Parfum), Panthenol, Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein, Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate, Sodium PCA, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf Oil, Melia Azadirachta (Neem) Seed Oil, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract, Citronellol, Geraniol, Hecxyl Cinnamal, Lilial, Linalool, Limonene


My last and final step is the castor oil hair treatment balm. Castor oil carries ricinoleic acid and omega- 6 essential fatty acids. There acids increase hair growth. It works on nourishing the scalp and strengthening the roots with the help of essential nutrients. I love that this product is a castor oil hair treatment. This balm fortifies and protects dry and damaged hair strands. I used this product after I detangled my hair and sectioned my hair in 6 bold plats. All of these products come in a tip applicator bottle. This is an easy way to dispense the product in your hair.


Use applicator tip to squeeze directly onto your scalp and massage into your natural or relaxed hair underneath your hair extensions. Use daily for maximum benefit.

Butylene/Ethylene/Styrene Copolymer, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, Crambe Abyssinica Seed Oil, Olea Europaea (Olive) Oil, Shea Butter Ethyl Esters, Fragrance (Parfum), Citronellol, Geraniol, Hecxyl Cinnamal, Lilial, Linalool, Limonene

I absolutely love this hair care line. It is definitely one of a kind and I recommend everyone who wears protective styles to try them out. Taking care of your hair under your protective styles is very important. Girl + Hair makes it easy for you to work through your hair while wearing a protective style and after a protective style.
