Big Chop and Braids!

Greetings, everyone! I wanted to share a short video of a big chop I did earlier this week!

I had a client with natural hair that had been wearing sew-ins and for a while and had damaged parts of her hair from using flat irons. She wanted all the damage gone and the rest of her hair cut to an even length. We followed that with feed-in braids to give her a low maintenance style while growing re-growing her hair.

I used shears to cut her hair and used Hair Garden’s Mint cleanser and Mango Punch Conditioner. We are looking forward to returning her to a full, healthy head of hair!

Please post any questions or comments and thanks for visiting my blog!

Hairstyles for Natural Hair (video)

Greetings, lovely people! I put together a compilation of some of my favorite styles that I have done over the past year or so. Check it out and like and share if you liked anything you saw!

Mohawk Madness!

Hello, out there! I’ve got some lovely hairstyles style to share with you. I absolutely love doing mohawk hairstyles and I have a couple of variations to share with you!

Cornrows with crochet!

The style above was executed with cornrows on the sides and bulk hair croched in the middle. Low maintenance hair style that lasts her about a month!

Pinned up mohawk
Mohawk before it’s pinned up!

The style you see above is simply cornrowed on the sides and two strand twisted in the center with afro braid hair. I love this style because of the versatility. You can wear it down or pin it up!

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!

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!

More Flat Twists!!

Greetings! I have been getting quite a few requests for this lovely flat twist style. This is another version of the look I created for a client!

Flat Twist Updo for Natural Hair

I visited Augusta the other weekend and got to love up on some hair! It was good to see my lovely clients! I have a quick second to share one of the lovely styles I did! This lovely flat twisted updo!

I didn’t have a style in mind when I got started! I just went for it!

wpid-img_20151025_205544.jpgThis style was completed using only the clients beautiful natural hair! I love the final results and look forward to recreating another look like this!

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!

A view of the side.

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!!

Thank you for stopping by!
