Hair Garden Nursery’s Braid Workshop For Moms!

Hello everyone! After many requests and much planning I have put together a braiding class for moms!

Many bring their children to the salons to have their hair styled but maintenance at home is just as important!

In this 3.5 hour class, you will learn basic braiding (plaits), cornrowing, twisting and coiling. This class also teaches how to prep for styling. This class is great for moms of children with beginner locs as well!

This class will include a Hair Garden sample set, gel, clips and rat tail comb. You bring your own brush and wide toothed comb!

Limited spaces available to ensure a quality and comfortable learning environment! Reserve your spot today! More classes may be available depending on requests!

“Product Feature Herbal Tea Treatment” on YouTube

Watch “Company Feature – Hair Garden” on YouTube!

Hello, lovelies! Back in early spring, I had the honor of being interviewed by the one of the owners of Paris Hair and Beauty Supplies! They came down to participate in the Taliah Waajid Natural Hair and Beauty Expo, which I was teaching classes at so I got the chance to meet and sit down with them! 

It was a very exciting experience! We discussed my company and my products in this interview. It has been broken up into different topics which I will be posting!

Dusting Ends! (Revisited)

Greetings, my dears! Back in May 2010 (šŸ˜°), I did my original post about dusting my ends (link). I had always been urged to do a video but just could never get it together!! Well, SURPRISE!! I finally did a quick, last-minute video of me dusting my ends.

Just as a refresher, dusting is like trimming your ends but not taking as much off. I personally have 4 classifications for cutting when it comes to my hair!

1. Spot cutting- That’s cutting a knot out here and there or where you see a problem area.

2. Dusting- Cutting about an inch or less of your ends to reduce tangles and shedding.

3. Trim- removing and inch or more of your ends. You are not cutting to achieve a style, just to remove the dead ends. (This can be done to refresh a cut!)

4. Hair cut- This is cutting to remove bulk and/or to achieve a particular look or style.

Moving back to dusting, I have a short little video showing how I usually dust. I also have it uploaded on my YouTube channel so if you don’t already follow me (The Hair Garden), please do!šŸ˜Š

I hope you found the video helpful! I am excited to finally share more of my natural hair regimen with you all! I can’t wait to post the next video! Thanks for stopping by!

Hair Garden Brings Back Bows!

Hello, beauties! Anyone who has known me for a while knows I love a good hair accessory! My original go-to was always some sort of flower. I would get creative and create all types of designs! I had a variety of flower adorned combs, clips and pins.

One day I had an accident with my hot glue gun and decided to shelve my hairdos making project for a while.

Now I am ready to create again, only very carefully this time! Ha ha! I have started making a few headbands and clips so far. What do you think?

I’ll post more of my accessories as they come along! Thanks for stopping in!

Hair Garden’s Product Makeover Revisited

Greetings, all! A few months back, I told you a that I had a product makeover happening for 3 of Hair Garden’s products. Well, the items have been tested by myself and you all and has been approved!

The first 2 items that I was most excited about are the cleansers! My soothing mint and mango punch cleansers are now whipped!

I was having trouble with the consistency and viscosity of the product and wasn’t satisfied with the results although the product worked well for me.

My new formula is more of a cream/paste texture as opposed to the former liquid.

Also, the Hair Juice formula is pretty much the same, I just increased the oil content and added mango butter to enhance softness. I had some customers bring a few things to my attention and I tweaked it! I also offer an alternative to the citrus scent. I now offer bamboo. It is a clean scent similar to the Avocado Shea moisturizer but not as sweet.

I am happy with the new changes and additions to The Hair Garden Nursery’s product lineup and I will continue to add more!

I offer sample sets that include a cleanser, conditioner, herbal oil, moisturizer and mist for $9.

These items can be purchased at my Etsy shop! Click here to visit The Hair Garden Nursery! Sales will be offered for the holiday season.

Satin Pillows and Bonnets for Hair Protection!

*Disclaimer: I am not advising towards or advocating anyone to stop wrapping up their hair at night. This is merely an account of a carefree natural!

Greetings, my lovely people! It has been a while since I dropped in, as usual, but I do have quite a bit of updating to do along the next couple of days! I have added some brand new items to the Hair Garden Nursery and I have also revisited and restocked some items from the past!!

The first set of Hair Garden’s hair care items I want to share are the new sleep care accessories! I decided to break in my sewing machine and have created lovely satin-lined pillows and bonnets to protect your hair while you rest!

Personally, I DO NOT wrap my hair at night unless it is completely necessary. In the past, I couldn’t sleep well unless my hair was secured. However, time passed and I would occasionally go to sleep without securing my hair, especially in the warmer months! There would be some nights where I would awaken suddenly from discomfort only to find that my scarf was soaked with sweat therefore causing my hair to be damp with sweat. That defeated the purpose of protecting my hair style overnight, right?

After a few of those occurrences, I stopped wrapping my hair at night and I loved it!!! It has been about 7 years since I last tied my hair on a regular basis. With the assistance of satin pillowcases, I was able to pull off avoiding that nightly routine. Occasionally, I would wear a bonnet or wrap if the hair style absolutely called for it.

Now, we all know that I love my African fabric! I acquired some lovely material when I visited Ghana last year to make my own pillows, headwraps and other crafts but had a time getting to know my sewing machine! After a break and determination I got that machine running and started my pillows and bonnets! I started small and moved up in size.

I picked the finest, high-quality satin I could find to go with the African fabric and the rest speaks for itself!

I am proud to add these lovely additions to The Hair Garden Nursery’s line-up in my Etsy shop! I offer pillowcases ranging from $15-35, full pillows range from $25-50. All offer free shipping for a limited time!

Hair Garden’s Product MakeoverĀ 

Hello, my loves!!! If you follow me on Etsy, Instagram, Twitter or Facebook, you’ve probably already seen that I am improving some existing products and introducing a new item to the line up!

A lot of my process in perfecting my product making is trial and error and please believe I have made a LOT of errors!! šŸ˜…

It took a little while to find the right ingredients because I wanted to stay as close to quality and natural ingredients as possible. 

I’m excited to let you all know that I have completed my personal test runs and am ready to get these new items out to you all! Only 2 oz sizes will be available for the first couple of weeks and then 8 and 16 oz. 

There will be some awesome sales going on as I finish off my old inventory to make place for the new items. I will be posting promo codes and having special sale listings!

I can’t wait to introduce these new items to you all! Thanks for all your support!
