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!

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!

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!

Hair Garden’s Product Makeover 

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!! 😅

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!

Hair Garden’s 1st Commercial!

Hello, my lovely people! Oh, how I have missed you all! I have been on a hiatus but am now back to work! I filmed my 1st commercial ad specifically for Paris Hair and Beauty Supplies, the beauty supply store that carries my products! I was pretty proud of the outcome so I wanted to share it with you all!

I introduce 2 of my new products as well- Mango Punch Cleanser and Euca-Mint Conditioner! I will be making another one soon because I have some other hair treats I am working on!

I hope you liked it! I will be updating again pretty soon!

Rod Set on Tapered Natural Hair

Hello, lovely people! Just wanted to share this beautiful roller set I did last week! This client wears a tapered haircut and usually gets it pressed. She wanted to try a style that would make it through the heat and unpredictable rain so we did this lovely rod set!

She only had to sit under the dryer for about 45-50 minutes and has a lovely set that will last her almost up to 2 weeks! I used a combination of (from the bottom up)  yellow, pink, grey and purple rods and Kera Care setting lotion. After rods were removed, I separated the curls with end of a rat tail comb! Simple but beautiful!

Hope you like this cute style! Thanks for stopping by!

Our Day at Augusta’s Saturday Market on the River!!

Greetings, everyone!  As I posted late last week, I was teaming up with African fashion company, AfroSimplicity at the Saturday Market on the River in Augusta. Before I say anything else, I want to thank all my lovely customers for coming out and showing their support! It felt good to see so many familiar faces!

We got up super early and headed out to set up our booth. I found it to be a great success. We had a great experience and met many wonderful, new people! I take any new venture or opportunity in business as a positive learning experience!

We got many visits to our table and from passers by and fellow vendors! AfroSimplicity’s creativity and beautiful merchandise was the talk of the market that day!
