First quarter 2012 update...

First off, I am in love and happy I made the decision

Then, the woman who installed my extensions really messed me up. Pieces have come out leaving the twists exposed. Some locs are really thin and others are thick. I am so annoyed. Only the beauty of my actual hair coming out makes me happy and hopeful. I am worried about the ones around the edges but I am hopeful none will break from weight/stress of the extensions.

Sunday I washed and retwisted my own hair. Was not bad. Put it in a bun.

I have tried a number of gels and I have to say this the best thus far - Joie MyGel - I have avoided beeswax so far and I'm happy about that. I did have some shea butter at the beginning and I regret that but that's the same person who did my extensions and I'm guessing she doesn't know much about loc care.


  1. They still look beautiful. I can't really see the issues that you're describing but I'm sure those are carefree for the most part, right? Thanks for updating us.

  2. Hey! I will have to post some pics but thx :) soon i wont have tge extensions to contend with

  3. U are so stylish! what do u say about following each other sweetie?:X


  4. I shall Google you...that link looks suspect. Thanks for stopping by & I'll return the favor :)

  5. A full head of extensions range from 5 to 9 packs of hair, assuming each pack contains 20 strands, 1g per strand. If your client has fine, thin hair with some layers and about shoulder length, chances are 5 to 6 packs may be enough.

    If your client has a blunt bob that is medium to thick in density, you will require about 10 to 12 packs of hair since you will need to blend the extensions in for a natural look.

    For most clients, you will need at least 5 packs or 100 strands of hair extensions. The number of hair extension packages you need will be based on the length and thickness of the client’s hair and the length and volume the client wants to achieve. This is why it is very important to have the client come in for a consultation prior to installation.

    For fine/thin hair, from the occipital bone down, it will take about 50- 60 strands; from the occipital up, to the crown, it will take 50-60 strands.

    For medium/thick hair, from the occipital bone down it will take 60- 80 strands; from the occipital bone up, to the crown it will take 50-80 strands.

    Remember, if the hair of your client is thicker or shorter, more often than not, you will need more packages of hair extensions to be able to blend the hair in, making it easy for you to create a natural look.

  6. If you’re going to have long hair, you need to be sure it is great long hair. Whether we like it or not, our appearance can determine our success (or failure) in our everyday confidence, our love lives, and our professional ambitions.

    To get ahead, improving your long hair is vital. Here are seven ways to accomplish just that.

    Brush up on your brush skills:
    paddle brushNot just any hairbrush will do; especially when it comes to managing long hair. The purpose of brushing your long tresses is to smooth and detangle, not to break and or damage like some brushes do. A brush with a blend of boar and nylon bristles will gently detangle without pulling and will reduce fly away hair. Brushes used while blow drying should have widely spaced bristles to prevent increased heat along the brush, which could damage the hair.

    You should only brush your hair when dry and comb your hair when wet. In general, brushing the hair should be kept to a minimum in order limit breakage. The myth that the hair should be brushed 100 strokes a day and the scalp vigorously massaged with the brush is simply untrue.

    Push away from pulling:
    It’s not that you can’t rock a ponytail every now and again; it’s that you shouldn’t rock it all the time. Tightly pulled ponytails can separate the root from the follicle, causing hair loss. Go for loose buns or braids, and always buy snag free accessories.

    Water isn’t just for washing:
    It is imperative that you consume the recommended amount of water for your body weight if you want healthy long hair. Without proper hydration, your hair becomes dry and brittle which causes breakage and possible hair loss.

    Protect and repair:
    Using a good hair mask (such as Rescue Me Hair Mask ) with shea butter and argan oil will penetrate your hair cuticle and help to restore elasticity as well as rebuild strength.

    Feed your hair:
    Topical Vitamin E will allow you to apply the supplement directly to your scalp and nourish your hair health directly. This is especially handy for restoring hair loss or just encouraging hair growth in general.

    Become a hair spa:
    Massage your scalp during conditioning just like your hair stylist does. Not only does it feel fantastic, it stimulates your hair follicles for growth and volume.

    Add some jewels to your crown:
    To give your hair a gorgeous instant extension, or perhaps to always have the perfect bangs, purchase some quality clip in extensions. Clip in extensions are not only quick and easy, they are less damaging to your hair. Many celebrities and successful people use clip in extensions all the time.

    Remember, appearances can determine so many things. Regardless of the hair you inherited, having the proper knowledge and know-how will get you great long hair no matter what! With hair that is healthy and gorgeous you’ll be confident, sought after, and successful.
