Not much to it……

Just make sure the tracks are as flat and secure as possible.

 

Just that EASY!

Hair means a lot to me. It’s basically another way to express yourself. Depending on how I do my hair that’s how I feel. If I wake up in the morning and I’m mad at the world I’m definitely not going to do my hair but if you see my hair freshly pressed or in some curls just know I’m having a good day 😘

My hair is my most beautiful feature.  I treat it like the finest silk.  Health and length are top priorities on my list. Expensive products are not off limits.  My hair reflects all of my hard work and care.  It is my crowning glory.  My hair is an extension of my identity. To dye it or fry it would be to deny a part of me. To texturize it or to perm it would be akin to wearing a mask.  My natural curls, coils, or kinks are here to stay for as long as I am here.  My hair is an extension of me.

Dat Part?

fullsizerender-7              What should a closure really look like? Absolutely nothing.

Closure installation is becoming very popular in the black community; ensuring protection for your natural hair while being able to implement any desired style. The braiding technique is key for laying a flat closure. The purpose of a closure is to illusion a natural scalp using either silk or lace. Hints. “Natural Scalp”.

Do:

  • Get a majority of the hair braided if not all, to increase growth and provide less tension and activity on left out hair i.e constant hair straightening, edge control build up, etc.
  • Find a nice powdered concealer that matches your skin tone to better blend closure
  • Treat as if it is your natural hair. Shampoo and Deep condition every two weeks
  • Keep hair under weave maintained and moisturized
  • Be very careful when oiling scalp between braids to make certain the weave doesn’t get oily

Don’t:

  • Pluck large amounts of hair off of the closure during the parting process
  • Have more than the edges left out
  • Use  the wrong braiding technique
