Moisturize your own hair.

Don’t go in there with a dry head. Oil your hair so that it doesn’t end up dried out and weak for however many weeks you choose to keep your protective style. Putting oil on somewhat damp hair is best as your hair will absorb it a lot better. All that being said, ensure that your hair is dry before you go to the salon. (The last thing you want is them brushing and blow drying your hair out, chile. It’s not comfortable.)
