Refreshing Red Haircolor!

Greetings, to to all! Got a haircolor video to share! I’m so forgetful when it comes to taking a photo of the final look! I promise I’m going to do better!

I lifted her roots to a level 6/7 and refreshed her red color using two parts #Igora L-89 and one part #Chi 8RR with 30 volume. I rodded her with red, yellow and pink perm rods for a tight long lasting curl. Check it out! I hope you like!

Give Your Locs A Clean Start #2!!

Greetings, Blossoms! I did a post on giving your locs a clean start a few months ago and wanted to revisit the topic. I had a client whose locs I had recently started and would be maintaining so I will be able to journal her progress and give you a closer look at my loc maintenance routine!

Like I said in my prior post, Give Your Locs A Clean Start, I believe in cleansing/shampooing regularly during the locking process. On a whim, I decided to film the parts of the re-twisting process that I could so you could see how it all works!

This first video shows the clients new growth since her last visit with me about 3 weeks ago. She was even able to shampoo one time on her own between visits!

The next video is her hair after being shampooed and conditioned with Hair Garden products. I started her locking process on 6/2/2015 ad you can already see some budding beginning around mid-length of the loc. Notice how the hair is meshing together even after it is freshly shampooed and free of product!

Here is her hair all twisted and ready to go under the dryer!

This last video shows the final results of the loc re-twist. I re-twisted her hair using Hair Garden’s “Herbal Tea” tree-tment and a small amount of EcoStyler. I let her sit under the hair dryer for about 20-25 minutes and then removed the clips. It takes about a week before the twists begin to frizz again and look a little messy. Within 2 to 3 weeks, it is time for another cleansing and retwisting!

My future videos will be a lot better because I finally invested in a tripod!! Feel free to ask any questions below!!

This style can be worn for 1 to 3 weeks depending on your preferences. Simply wrap it up when you are going to sleep or showering to keep it from frizzing and you are good to go! Want a look like this? Contact me at hairgarden@live.com or book me at http://www.styleseat.com/melissaotoo!
