My 10 year old son, who is African American, just got plaits for the first time. The lady who put them in told us they'd probably last about a month.

My question is, what do you use for conditioner (and shampoo or do you do no-poo) while your/your child's hair is in plaits?

When he wore it in an afro one of our favorite products was Knot Today leave in conditioner/detangler, but wouldn't that "untangle" the braids and make them more likely to come out?

One thing about DS's hair is that it seems to soak up an incredible amount of product, which means that scented things make his hair smell really strongly. For that reason we prefer things that are either unscented or very lightly scented. Products such as Carol's Daughter or Cornrows and Co. leave his hair looking and feeling great, but don't really work because the scent is kind of overwhelming.
