Using an Edge Control

Edge control products are used to lay your natural edges down to give your edges a soft, shiny and straight look. It’s used for natural and chemically treated hair. Unlike gel, edge control will not dry out your hair. For best results, apply edge control, using a bristle brush to smooth out evenly then tie down edges tightly with a silk scarf, then use your net for your weave. The net is always best whether curly or straight.

Malaysian, Indian, Brazilian and Peruvian Hair.. Whats the Difference ?

Malaysian, Indian, Brazilian and Peruvian Hair.. Whats the Difference ?


There are some differences between all 4 types of hair. The differences are more apparent in the hair's reaction to water, heat or air drying. The Client will defiantly notice the difference after a couple weeks of wear.



SIMILARITIES


These all have natural movement and should have minimal shedding and tangling.
Each texture can be processed in wavy, straight or curly .
With virgin Hair you will notice colors are not even through out the bulk. You will find a few strands maybe lighter or darker than the rest of the weft. This is normal and typical of hair from a sunny country where hair lightens with exposure to the sun.
A co-wash and Weft sealer is recommended on all types of hair.

DIFFERENCES


Malaysian Hair - Malaysian hair at first can appear excessively shiny but after the first 2-3 washes the shine lessens considerably to take on a more natural appearance. Curls will not loosen or drop with time but maintain their form for the entire day. No product is required to maintain the curl. Avoid using too oil spray on this hair as it will make the hair very shiny and appear 'wiggy'. Malaysian hair is softer and silker in texture than Indian hair.If you want volume and thickness, Malaysian hair is your best option. It gives great bounce and heavy body. It is great for all styles. Malaysian hair comes naturally dark in color and natural straight. Due to its fullness, it can have a tendency to be dry if proper care isn’t taken. We advise that sufficient moisture in the form of good leave-in conditioner be used after the second re-use of the hair. The good thing is that this type of hair requires less wash because of its heavy density.


Indian Hair - This is 100% Indian virgin human hair and it comes from the Indian Race. Indian hair tends to dry into a beautiful wave which ranges from a slight wave to very wavy, although it straightens and curls very easily. The hair holds curls very well but they do loosen slightly but will never totally fall out unless you are in a humid or damp environment. By purchasing Indian hair from an honest supplier, it will come in its raw state. A co-wash is absolutely necessary to transform this hair from its raw state.


It is very soft and lustrous, and thinner than Chinese hair. The natural straight hair texture can wave up when wet. Great for all textures ( yaki/wavy/curly ), specially for natural wave and natural straight


Brazilian Hair - It comes from the pacific of Brazil and its derived in different lengths and natural colors. This hair is silkier and shinier in texture than Indian Hair. This hair has a shiny appearance and feel. It is available in wavy, straight or curly textures. The Straight textures are not bone straight but tends to have some light waves in it. This hair holds curls very well and tends to hold curls longer than the Indian Hair.This type of hair is usually soft and smooth. Texture may vary from natural straight to natural full bouncy body wave. The use of this type of hair is popular in most west-african countries. This type of hair last for as long as you take good care of it. It doesn’t require special maintenance. Brazilian hair is good for all hairstyles. It holds curls beautifully and curls when wet.


Peruvian Hair - This hair is a little coarser and thicker in texture than Indian or Brazilian hair. It blends well with normal African-American relaxed hair textures and medium Caucasian hair textures. Peruvian hair has received tons of attention since 2010. Peruvian hair is multi purpose hair. Peruvian hair has the ability to look naturally voluminous despite the fact it is lightweight.Meaning, you can have over 500grams (5pcks) of hair and yet it feels like feathers. It is extremely manageable even in times when hair isn’t maintained properly. Peruvian hair is great for sleek straight styles as well as short & edgy styles.


DO'S AND DON'TS


1. Air drying is highly recommended for all types of hair after washing and conditioning.


2. Perform a co-wash at least once in 2-3 weeks.


3. Try to always use a moisturizing leave in conditioner. Avoid having to use any other styling products between washes.


4. Use alcohol free serums or products on hair. This will not dry out the hair and make it frizzy.


5. Do not apply any heavy oils on hair as they will seep on to the hair extension, in turn weighing it down and resulting in restricted movement and potential tangling.

What is Alopecia? Is there help?

Alopecia Patients

What Is Alopecia Areata?
 
Alopecia areata is considered an autoimmune disease. It mistakenly attacks the hair follicles. This can lead to hair loss on the scalp and elsewhere. In most cases, hair falls out in small, round patches about the size of a quarter. In some people, hair loss is more extensive. Although uncommon, the disease can progress to cause total loss of hair on the head., face, and body.



Who gets Alopecia?

Alopecia areata affects an estimated four million Americans of both sexes and of all ages and ethnic backgrounds. It often begins in childhood. If you have a close family member with the disease, your risk of developing it is slightly increased. If your family member lost his or her first patch of hair before age 30, the risk to other family members is greater. Overall, one in five people with the disease have a family member who has it as well.



What Causes Alopecia?
 
In alopecia areata, immune system cells called white blood cells attack the rapidly growing cells in the hair follicles that make the hair. The affected hair follicles become small and drastically slow down hair production. Fortunately, the follicle always has the potential to regrow hair. Scientists do not know exactly why the hair follicles undergo these changes, but they suspect that In addition to treatments to help hair grow, there are measures that can be taken to minimize the physical dangers or discomforts of lost hair.



How Is Alopecia Treated?

In addition to treatments to help hair grow, there are measures that can be taken to minimize the physical dangers or discomforts of lost hair.

  • Sunscreens are important for the scalp, face, and all exposed areas.
  • Eyeglasses (or sunglasses) protect the eyes from excessive sun, and from dust and debris, when eyebrows or eyelashes are missing.
  • Wigs, caps, or scarves protect the scalp from the sun and keep the head warm.

The following are some treatments for alopecia areata.



Local injections, Corticosteroids, Oral corticosteroids, Topical ointments, Minoxidil (5%) (Rogaine*), Sulfasalazine, Topical sensitizers, Oral cyclosporine, Photo-chemotherapy.



Alternative Therapies:
 
When drug treatments fail to bring sufficient hair regrowth, some people turn to alternative therapies. Alternatives purported to help alopecia areata include acupuncture, aroma therapy, evening primrose oil, zinc and vitamin supplements, and Chinese herbs. Because many alternative therapies are not backed by clinical trials, they may or may not be effective for re-growing hair. In fact, some may actually make hair loss worse.

Sealing your wefts!

 
I wanted to do a short tutorial on how to seal your wefts. Its a very simple process that can extend the life span of your hair extensions by reinforcing the weft (making it stronger) and eliminate excessive shedding. It will still shed a little maybe a few little hairs in a brush.
Until I’m proven wrong ALL HAIR SHEDS! Milky Way Hair, Unicorn Hair, Cheap Hair, Expensive Hair, Horse Hair Llama hair, Barbie Hair, My Little Pony Hair, Bougie Girl Hair…
 
 
The better quality the hair the less it tends to sheds (and that statement can vary because there are so many vendors). I’ve found that quality vendors tend to make stronger wefts for the most part and there’s less of an excessive shedding issue.
 
~What You Will Need~
Time (at least 1hr), Wefted Hair Extensions, Sealer, Application Bottle (if needed, some sealants come in a tube and the hole is too big), Rubbing Alcohol, something to protect your surface and lay the hair on (towels, mannequin head, cardboard, table or an ironing board.)
 
Step 1~ Purchase your desired fabric sealant. You can find fabric sealant in any craft store, Wal-Mart or you can purchase sealant from some hair vendors.
If your looking in the craft store look for or ask for Fray Block or Fray Check etc. If you ask for Hair Weft Sealer you will probably get the side eye.
I use Dritz Fray Check, which I purchased at Micheal’s or Jo-Ann’s (can’t remember). Some hair vendors sell their own brand of sealant which your can order from their website. Dritz costs about $2 for two small bottles that came together in one package. I have only used Dritz Fray Check. I’m not stuck on that brand & I’m open to try new things but I’ve had success with it. I’ve heard good things about Aleens Fray Check some Hair vendor branded ones as well.
 
Step 2~If your doing this to new hair or even used hair make sure the hair is dry. I prefer to wash and condition the hair prior to sealing. The order is up to you as long as the weft dry when you apply the sealant.
 
Step 3~ Find your workspace. If you select a sealant with a strong smell choose a workplace that’s well ventilated. Do this someplace where your know no one will touch it or move it while it’s drying. I like to lay my tracks down on a towel on the floor.
 
Step 4~ Place the sealant on the tracks. Run it along the length of the weft, applying it
directly to the weft .
 
I like to lay my tracks down on a towel on the floor. To save space and not have a whole interstate highway system of hair tracks lying around, I lay down my first bundle towards to the top of the towel seal, then place another towel down then lay the next track.
 
Step 5~ Let it dry.The drying time will depend on what brand/type of sealant you use. Most “dry” quickly but it don’t “cure“ immediately, meaning it may still fray or shed if not completely dry. Do NOT WET OR WASH the hair for 24 hrs. or for up to five days depending on the sealant you choose to use. Be sure to READ the instructions on the bottle or package.
 
Step 6~ Once it’s dry to the touch or your satisfaction flip over and do the other side of the track of you want. I’ve done this about 4 times and have only sealed one side of the track and have been satisfied with that result. I know some ladies who prefer to do both sides. I know some ladies that double seal. So do what’s best for you.
Once completely dry it should be clear. If your heavy handed with your sealant you may look a little white or you may see a clear whitish residue. If your install is good NO ONE SHOULD SEE YOUR TRACKS… EVER…

Having a Problem Applying your own Wig???

Sometimes, the excited customer has this fantasy of being able to unpack their first lace front wig and achieve a flawless application in record time. You've done the research, learned all you can and you're ready. Sometimes, it's frustrating and takes practice to get your application technique just right. Although it's time consuming to practice applying your lace front wig, the results of the perfect application are well worth the effort. The best advice we can give you is to have patience. Set aside plenty of time to apply your unit, don't apply it in a rush, and most of all, be gentle with your unit becuase pulling just a tad too much, or being a little too careless with the scissors can damage the wig cap. Even the most experienced stylists occasionally have a snafu, pulling a wig too tightly or cutting too close to the hairline and experiencing a slip of the scissors.

The most important thing to learn about applying your wig for the first time is if it doesn't fit, don't stretch it. The most common damage to a wig cap is the result of trying to pull and stretch, a cap that is too small, to make it fit. You will notice that when you receive your wig, if you have lace around the perimeter, there is extra lace around the front hairline and the nape. This comes in handy if your cap fits but the hair doesn't quite cover your temples or sideburns. We can add more hair to the wig, our wigmakers are experts at extending a hairline. However, if you have already cut the extra lace away, this will no longer be an option.

When you unpack your wig, place it on your head to ensure it fits and the hair covers your own hairline before you begin to cut away the lace or try to apply the unit. Then, have patience, be willing to learn and experiment, and use our application guide (included with your order if you requested one) to help you through the process.
