Tips for maintaining protective hairstyles for natural clients
Here is an interesting fact 85% of our client base is natural. They no longer use perms or relaxers and their hair is in its natural state. Most are not yet comfortable with wearing frontals or closures yet. They want their weaves to look natural. My first tip would be is to not to keep your leave-out in the same spot for each installation. If you did a left side part, the next time do a middle part leave-out. Over time continually heating the same section will cause damage and breakage. Secondly when you do use a flat-iron make sure to use a heat protectant. Another major tip I would deter from relaxing just the section you’re leaving out. I constantly hear feedback “I want my hair to look natural” and/or “my hair won’t blend” Browse the hair gallery majority of the ladies pictured are natural. A hair texture recommended for natural especially in the summer months. Is Intriguing Curly texture a tip to blend your leave-out with this texture is to use a few perm rods at night with your natural hair and it will blend perfectly with this texture. We also offer alternatives to weave installations. A popular one for our clients is a crochet installation. Your own hair is braided completely and then hair is crocheted into your hair. We offer Intriguing Crochet hair very similar to the Havana Mambo twists from the Janet Collection. Priced at $5 for 12 inches and $10 for 24 inches in an array of many different colors. Clients also use this style if they want box braids, Senegalese twists, or faux locs. Clients can have the same look without the long wait of several hours or the added tension and stress these particular hairstyles can cause on a client’s natural hair. Visit your local beauty supply store and asked to be directed in the section of crochet hair. You will be surprised at the options available. My favorite oils recommended to use at night would be castor oil, coconut oil, and peppermint oil. These will moisturize your scalp and hair, and help with growth.
