Thermal Staightening aka “Blow Outs” aka Silk Press

Hi Beauties!

 

I hope you ladies are finally getting a chance to enjoy some of this natural Vitamin D (Sunshine)!! With the warmer weather here, keeping our blow outs silky straight – seems to be a nuisance with the extra humidity in the air.

I find that part of the problem with maintaining straight tresses is most ladies use the same “natural” products that they’re using for their fro after hair has been blown out. There lies the problem.  Natural products contain fatty oils that will weigh straight hair down.  After any thermal styling service you should use light moisturizers (as if your hair was relaxed/chemically treated.)  My go to is Kera Care’s “Over Night Treatment.

 

A little goes a long way — and if those edges poof, put a little Over night Treatment on at night, tie down with your silk or satin scarf — and, voila`! Your edges are silky smooth again.  The frizz is eliminated and hair feels light and soft.  In stock today — make sure to pick up your jar at your next Thermal Straightening appointment.

Peace & Blessings

Hello Summer

Hey Beauties!

Summer “seems” to be here to stay — so the question I get most is “what will I do to my hair with all of this humidity??

This question is consistent amongst naturals as well as relaxer wearers.  I’ll break down a couple suggestions for each — and if you have any suggestions, please share! Each one teach one:)

Let’s start with my naturals:

Natural hair thrives in moist environments –  the goal here is not only to pile on layers and layers of products, actually less is more in these hot and humid summer months.  After a good shampoo and conditioning treatment, lightly coat your hair with a absorbing moisturizing cream, of course I suggest our “Eclectic Hair and Body Cream.”  After that, seal your ends with a light leave in conditioner, I recommend “Giovanni Direct Leave In” it could be purchased at Whole Foods. If you want extra hold, proceed to twist or shingle with Eco Styler Olive gel.

Another suggestion is to keep your ends sealed and protected by either rocking a natural up do, mini twist (that aren’t to be taken down for a couple of weeks, or wash and goes.  Wash and goes don’t last long – and require lots of products for denser hair, however your hair will LOVE the moisture (water) applied on a regular basis!

Relaxer wearers:  It’s def a lot simpler for you ladies, less products, making sure to keep your ends seal by wrapping your hair in a satin scarf at night.  Updo’s, rod or straw sets will help and last longer than heat styling.  Again, the goal (as with natural hair) is to keep those end protected – while looking fly in the process!
