In the winter months I will put mine and my daughter's hair in braids sometimes. When I do, I make my own braid spray from several commercially available products, one of which is Infusium 23 Original Leave in Treatment.
I like to use Infusium 23 Original in my braid spray beause it helps to repair and strengthen damaged hair by infusing the hair with 23 essential pro-vitamin and treatment ingredients like castor oil. This product is also very versatile meaning that you could leave it in or use it as a pre-poo and rinse it out before washing your hair. It can also be used on wet or dry hair daily to reap the conditioning benefits. I've tried the other Leave in Treatments but the Original formulation is the best.
I dilute Infusium 23 into my braid spray to add extra conditioning benefits to it. With Infusium 23 in my braid spray, I know that mine and my daughter's hair will reap the benefits of its pro-vitamin and treatment ingredients resulting in less hair breakage, stronger and more manageable hair when I take down the braids. Spraying Infusium 23 Original on the scalp and length of the braid, helps the take-down and detangling process immensely! Our hair is very tangled after having braids in for several weeks and my braid spray with Infusium 23 Original in it can easily make those tangles disappear!
