Are you ready to rock those cool cornrows but need expert advice? Look no further! Hairstyle guru Linda Miller is here to guide you. Linda’s decades of experience make her the perfect voice to help you choose the right style, care for your hair, and stay on trend.

Choosing the Right Style

Linda’s first tip is to think about how long you want to keep your cornrows in. If you’re looking for a short-term style, go for the classic pattern. It’s quick to do and easy to take out. Want to keep your cornrows in for a month or more? Go for the knotless style. This method takes more time but causes less tension on your scalp. Linda also suggests adding some hair extensions to your cornrows. This will give you a fuller look and let you play with different styles. Remember, these extensions need extra care!

Caring for Your Cornrows

Linda recommends you wash your cornrows every 7 to 10 days. Use a clarifying shampoo to remove any product build-up. Then, use a moisturizing shampoo and conditioner. To keep your scalp healthy, apply a light oil to your scalp after your wash. Avoid heavy oils and creams. They can make your cornrows look dirty.
