i got my hair cornrowed this weekend. It looks great! But, I'd like to ask those who have gotten braids in a salon, do you pre-wash your own hair at home or let them do it. I assumed that they had to wash it at the salon, so I didn't wash it for two days. When I got there, I found out that the wash was an extra $10, but I could have washed it at home. I opted to wash although I was skeptical, b/c my hair was coated down with coconut oil ( a great conditioner btw) and had been previously air dryed. I know that air dryed hair shouldn't be manipulated that much. Anyway, I was a bit upset b/c I wasn't too hot on the Motions Shampoo/ Condtioner in one formula she used and the biggest complaint was that although she used a low heat hand dryer, she brushed it as she dried. I was happy not to see too many strands come off on the brush and that she didn't overdry it( it was just barely dry maybe a bit under dried). I have been really keeping my hair conditioned lately! Anyway, do you all wash at home or get a shampoo at the shop? If you do it at home, how do you dry your hair. Under a hooded, blow dry, air dry?
