Few things are as satisfying as seeing a freshly completed set of braids in an online video but anyone who frequently gets their hair braided can attest to the fact that they don't stay that way for long....
One thing that does help, however, is a setting foam that most professional braiders seem to be using more often. This type of products is also more commonly referred to as mousse.
The most popular is a styling foam by a brand called Nairobi foaming lotion.
The product is a favourite among many because it adds volume to hair and often provides both conditioning and hold, without any clumps or build-up and it stiffens the hair as well, meaning it helps it hold the shape for much longer.
It is also incredibly popular because the product works on a wide variety of hair types and textures in addition to a wide range of benefits.
Where to get it?
Most vloggers get their online from the major American stores but in South Africa, it can be found online at Hair City, as well as various dispensaries such as Clicks and Dischem.
