QUESTIONS THAT I AM ALWAYS ASKED                 

Q:DO I HAVE TO CUT MY HAIR OFF IN ORDER TO GO NATURAL?

 A: NOW PERSONALLY IT DOES MATTER HOW DAMAGED YOUR HAIR IS IF ITS DAMAGED AT ALL AND IT ALSO DEPENDS ON IF YOU HAVE NEW GROWTH AND YOU ARE TRYING TO JUST CUT THE RELAXER PART OFF , YOU DONT HAVE TO CUT IT ALL OF BUT IF ITS AT A LENGTH WHERE U DONT MIND BEING SHORT I WOULD RECOMMEND YOU CUT THE RELAXER OFF BECAUSE YOU WILL BE ABLE TO DEFINATELY TELL THE DIFFERNCE YOU WILL HAVE YOUR NATURAL HAIR COMING IN HEALTHY UNPROCESSED AND THICK AND THEN YOUR RELAXED HAIR WILL LOOK THIN AND STRINGY AND IT WILL BECOME DIFFICULT TO MANAGE UNLESS YOU KEEP IT STYLED

 

Q: HOW DO I TAKE CARE OF MY NATURAL HAIR

 A: A LOT OF PEOPLE ASK ME THIS QUESTION THE KEY TO TAKING CARE OF NATURAL HAIR IS MOISTURE MOISTURE MOISTURE , YOU HAVE TO MAKE SURE THAT YOUR HAIR IS GETTING THE PROPER MOISTURE IT NEEDS WHILE YOU ARE NATURAL BEING THAT A LOT OF TIMES THE HAIR SEEMS TO BE A LOT DRYER WHEN U ARE NATURAL, ALSO USE LESS HEAT BY NOT FLAT IRONING ALL THE TIME USE ALTERNATIVES LIKE PROTECTIVE STYLES SO YOU DONT HAVE TO ADD HEAT AFTER YOU SHAMPOO AND CONDITION YOUR HAIR LET IT AIR DRY INSTEAD OF BLOWDRYING IT THIS WILL HELP ALSO WITH YOUR CURL PATTERN THE LESS HEAT YOU USE THE MORE CURLS YOU HAVE THE MORE MOISTURE YOU PUT IN YOUR HAIR THE MORE HYDRATED YOUR HAIR WILL BE .DEEP CONDITIONS ARE ALSO A KEY FACTOR YOU DONT HAVE TO SIT UNDER THE DRYER PUT A PLASTIC CAP ON YOUR HEAD AND LET YOUR BODY HEAT DO THE WORK, THEY SHOULD BE DONE EVERY WEEK TO EVERY TWO WEEKS. 

 

Q: WHAT KIND OF HAIR CAN I USE FOR WEAVING MY HAIR? 

A: 100% HUMAN HAIR IS ALWAYS BEST TO USE WHEN WEAVING HAIR .THE HAIR LAST LONGER SO YOU CAN KEEP YOUR EXTENSIONS IN FOR A GOOD 1 1/2 TO 2 MONTHS .AND NOT NONE OF THAT MIXED DOG HAIR THEY SELL IN THE BEAUTY SUPPLY STORES IT MAY SAY BRAZILIAN ,MALAYSIAN,PERUVIAN, BUT REALLY ITS MIXED WITH DIFFERENT FIBERS.GO ONLINE TO PURCHASE HAIR SOME SITES ARE ALIEXPRESS.COM, HAIRGENISUS.COM,DIAMONDVIRGINHAIR.COM,PRINCESSHAIRSHOP.COM

Q:DO I PUT A RELAXER IN MY HAIR BEFORE I GET IT BRAIDED?

A:NO YOU ARE NEVER TO PUT A RELAXER OR ANY KIND OF STRAIGHTENER IN YOUR HAIR BEFORE GETTING IT BRAIDED. WHEN YOU PUT A RELAXER IN YOUR HAIR IT STRETCHES YOUR HAIR OUT. SO BRAIDING RELAXED HAIR  WILL CAUSE BREAKAGE.

Q:WHAT DO I PUT IN MY HAIR WHEN IT IS BRAIDED?

A: AFRICAN AMERICAN MEN AND WOMEN MUST KEEP SOME KIND OF OIL ON YOUR SCALP WHEN THE HAIR IS BRAIDED RESULTS OF NOT DOING THIS WILL CAUSE BREAKAGE,DANDRUFF,AND A VERY DRY ITCHY SCALP. SO I RECOMMEND ANY KIND OF MOISTURIZING OILS THAT WILL PENETRATE  SCALP.

Q: WILL BRAIDS OR SEW-IN'S BRING MY HAIR OUT?

A: NO THEY WILL NOT IT'S ALL IN THE WAY YOU TAKE CARE OF YOUR HAIR. IF YOU ARE SHAMPOOING, MOISTURIZING, AND OILING YOUR HAIR LIKE YOU ARE SUPPOSE TO YOUR HAIR WILL IN FACT GROW.WHOEVER YOU GET TO DO THE BRAIDS IN SEW-IN MAKE SURE THEY ARE NOT PULLING YOUR BRAINS OUT YOUR HAIR DOES NOT HAVE TO BE IN A MILLION SMALL TIGHT BRAIDS TO HAVE A NICE SECURE SEW IN. ALSO IT IS RECOMMENDED THAT YOU GIVE YOUR HAIR BREAKS IN BETWEEN WEAVING AND BRAIDS TO CONDITION YOUR HAIR AND GIVE YOUR HAIR A BREAK FROM ALOT OF TENSION.

Q:CAN I SHAMPOO MY HAIR WHILE IT IS BRAIDED?

A: YES YOU CAN. IN FACT YOU ARE SUPPOSE TO. BRAIDS LAST FOR AT LEAST 3 MONTHS FROM THE DATE OF GETTING THEM DONE. SO I WOULD SAY BY THE THIRD WEEK AFTER GETTING IT DONE YOU SHOULD SHAMPOO AND CONDITION YOUR HAIR AND REMEMBER APPLY OIL BEFORE IT COMPLETELY DRIES THAT WAY THE OIL CAN SET INTO YOUR ROOTS AND SCALP.

Q:WHEN I TAKE MY BRAIDS OUT IS IT SUPPOSE TO SHED?

A:OUR HAIR SHEDS EVERYDAY SO WHEN IT IS KEPT IN BRAIDS OVER A LONG PERIOD OF TIME ALL THE SHEDDING YOUR HAIR WAS DOING WILL LOOK LIKE YOU'VE LOST ALOT OF HAIR WHEN TAKING YOUR BRAIDS OUT.ALSO YOU SHOULD NEVER KEEP ANY EXTENSIONS IN YOUR HAIR LONGER THAN 3 MONTHS.

Q: WHAT IS A TWENTY- SEVEN PIECE?

A: A TWENTY- SEVEN PIECE IS A HAIR STYLE THAT CONTAINS TWENTY-SEVEN OR SOMETIMES LESS PIECES OF HAIR GLUED TO A CAP OR SEWED TO YOUR HAIR. IT COMES SHORT OR LONG AND THEY LAST ABOUT 1 MONTH IF SEWED IN AND 2 1/2 WEEKS IF GLUED. IF GLUED ON A CAP WHEN DRY IT MAY BE REMOVED OFF AND USED WHENEVER NEEDED AS A WIG.

 

Q:WHAT ARE INFUSION?

A: HAIR INFUSIONS ARE INDIVIDUAL HAIR PIECES THAT ARE ATTACHED TO YOUR HAIR USING EITHER MICRO LINKS OR PRE-GLUED TIP(KERATIN TIPS) . THIS HAIR CAN BE COLORED AND RELAXED IT CAN ALSO BE SHAMPOOED AND CONDITIONED AS YOU WOULD DO YOUR OWN HAIR IT CAN LAST UP TO 6 MONTHS TO A YEAR BUT IT IS RECOMMENDED YOU RECEIVE MAINTENANCE EVERY 2 TO 3 MONTHS IN ORDER TO PROTECT YOUR HAIR FROM BEING DAMAGED OR THE FORMATION OF TANGLED KNOTS AT THE ROOTS.

Q:WHAT IS THE SMOOTHING SYSTEM?

A: THE SMOOTHING SYSTEM IS A SAFE ALTERNATIVE TO TRADITIONAL HARSH STRAIGHTENING SYSTEMS INFUSES THE HAIR WITH A UNIQUE FORMULA OF AMINO ACIDS, PROTEINS, SILK AND PEARL INTO THE HAIRS CUTICLE. THE SYSTEM SAFELY TURNS  FRIZZY, CURLY HAIR INTO BEAUTIFUL, SOFT AND SILKY HAIR.
