If you’ve ever experienced unbearable irritation when wearing synthetic braids in the past, you’ll thank me later for this recommendation. One black-owned company, Dosso Beauty, has a hypo-allergenic, anti-itch pre-stretched braiding hair that feels soft and looks more natural than the cheaper synthetic brands when finished. Another company, Spetra, has an anti-bacterial pre-stretched braiding hair that sensitive scalp girls will love too. I have personally used both and I did not experience any irritation with either. View More

Synthetic Hair Irritated My Scalp And Almost Made Me Quit Braids. This Black-Owned Hypoallergenic Option Changed Everything. I always loved the way braids looked on other people.

She spent a year cold-calling and researching manufacturers that would make a hair product for her that was itch free, hypoallergenic, and prewashed.
