As much as posiisible, avoid washing your hair while it is cornrowed as this makes them get spoilt fast. If you must wash, wear a net cap before shampooing. Thoroughly wet the hair through the net.
Get mild shampoo; put a small amount on the palms and press all ove the head pressing the shampoo in as much as possible. Mild shampoo will not strip your hair of oils even as much as it cleanses your scalp. Let the shampoo stay in for a few minutes before you rinse it off using cold water. Ensure the soap is completely rinsed out.
