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!

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!

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!

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!
