Whether you have box braids, crochet braids, or Senegalese twists, braid sprays are a must for keeping a shiny, moisturized head. Many braid sprays advertise as sheens, meaning that they’ll make your braids look fresh, even after some weeks. Some braid sprays moisturize the scalp and your natural hair, which will minimize hair loss once it’s time to take the braids down. Those sprays may also have a leave-in conditioner element, too. Oils such as tea tree oil, argan oil and jojoba oil are common active ingredients, and also help relieve an itchy scalp. While not a substitute for shampoo, braid sprays are an easy way to care for your natural hair until the braids come out.
