Jace: Designed by Nature, Maintained by Nature

It’s hard to believe that Summer is nearing its end.

The kids are getting ready to head back to school, Fall is on the horizon, but somehow, the sun didn’t get the memo. LOL

 

The heat is still very real, and that means that your curly and wavy locs will still need appropriate moisture.

 

Remember the moisture advice from a few posts ago? No? Have no fear; I’ve placed a snippet below for you.🙂

“When spending extended time in the sun, be sure to stay hydrated. Water is the best form of hydration. Sodas, and juices may be yummy, but the extra sugar and calories can do more harm than good.

The same is true for your tresses. Moisture is key, especially with wavier and curlier pieces. A little water goes a long way. Many ladies like to add leave in conditioner, but just like those sodas and juices, leave in can do more harm than good.

Curly and wavy pieces like to be clean, well conditioned, rinsed, and left to breathe. If you prefer a more defined look, a little (dime sized amount) of Miss Jessie’s Pillow Soft Curls can be used.”

 

This information is still very important, and in fact, we wanted to take it a step further for you.

Jace: Keeping Cool While Staying Cute

So you’ve made plans for the day. You’ve picked just the right outfit, beat your face to perfection, and are now deciding what you would like to do with your hair. Big barrel curls? Straight, and sleek? Wand curls?

Then you realize…it’s 100 degrees in the shade!!! Is it too hot to rock the bundles you love so much??? Absolutely NOT!!!

They are plenty of ways to wear your bundles that allow for style, and functionality in the unforgiving heat of Summer.

Here are just a few tips and tricks some of our staff members have found helpful when styling their hair during the hottest time of year.

*If your bundles are sewn onto a unit (wig cap), flip the wig inside out, exposing the under side of the unit. Take one track, and sew it around the perimeter of the wig. This will allow you to pull your unit up into a high pony, or bun. Removing the hair from your neck, keeping you cooler, and super cute. Messy buns are definitely a “go to” Summer style. This also helps when the wind blows; none of your “Under the cap” secrets are exposed. LOL (A head band can be used to hide any perimeter hair that you don’t want shown)

*Similar to the first tip, if you’re wearing a traditional sew in, consider leaving a small amount of your perimeter out to allow your hair to be pulled up. Hand tied wefts are great for this style. They allow you to leave the smallest amount of your hair out, and still cover the wefts, as they are super flat, and super thin.

*Try shorter lengths. A cute bob is never a bad choice. Its a functional, and fashionable option. Ten, twelve, and fourteen inch pieces allow for a natural layered effect. Some ladies go even shorter. Opting for eight, ten, and twelve inches.

*Braid it up! Yes, you can braid your bundles. I personally like to split my hair into two equal parts. I then pull all of the hair to the front, placing two equal amounts on either side of my face. I then braid both sides. Nothing fancy, just two simple braids (I call it my Pippi Longstocking look lol). Put a rubber band on the ends to hold the braids in place, and BOOM, an easy, cute, and cool style. ***Be sure that none of your tracks are showing in the back when you split the hair down the middle.***

*Like the tip above, a side braid works nicely as well. Pull all of the hair over to a side ponytail, secure with a ponytail holder, braid down the length of the hair, and secure with a rubber band.

*Lastly, there’s the tried and true low ponytail. Simply pull your hair to the back, in a sleek, low ponytail. This works best on a nice, flat install. Be sure to groom any exposed hair (your edges, and nape area), and you are good to go.

Jace: Hello Summer!!!

Summer has officially arrived!!!

Barbeques, beaches, and beaming sun rays. Oh, who are we kidding??? It’s HOT!! lol

Though we all love Summer time fun, we must be sure to take the proper precautions.

When spending extended time in the sun, be sure to stay hydrated. Water is the best form of hydration. Sodas, and juices may be yummy, but the extra sugar and calories can do more harm than good.

The same is true for your tresses. Moisture is key, especially with wavier and curlier pieces. A little water goes a long way. Many ladies like to add leave in conditioner, but just like those sodas and juices, leave in can do more harm than good.

Curly and wavy pieces like to be clean, well conditioned, rinsed, and left to breathe. If you prefer a more defined look, a little (dime sized amount) of Miss Jessie’s Pillow Soft Curls can be used.

Summer is a time of fun and family. Be sure to enjoy both safely🙂

Jace: Closure Maintenance

As Summer makes its way forward, bringing with it scorching temps, high humidity, and random storms, one thing becomes certain: leave outs everywhere are in danger of the dreaded REVERSION!!

There’s nothing like having beautiful bundles, paying to have them installed, looking amazing as you get out of the stylist’s chair, just to walk outside and have your leave out greeted with a full on attack.

For those of you who may not be familiar with closures, we have listed some care tips for you below.🙂

*Closures are very delicate pieces. Longevity will depend heavily on how the piece is installed, handled, and manipulated.

*Dying/coloring/highlighting or otherwise chemically altering the closure can weaken the hair if not done professionally.

*Plucking, tweezing, or otherwise thinning the closure weakens the base, and can lead to excessive shedding.

*Installation of the closure is also very important. If pulled too taught, it can stretch or weaken the closure base.

*Excessive use of heat when styling can cause breakage of the hairs

*Styling tools are very important. Using the proper combs, and brushes also aid in the longevity of a closure piece.

*Scratching the closure area can rip the knotted hairs from the base.

* There are products on the market that can be used to seal the knots on a lace closure. (Silk closures do not have exposed knots, hence sealing is not possible). We, as a company, do not recommend any particular sealing products, as they are very heavy in chemicals, and can cause scalp irritation. However, many ladies use sealants without issue, and this can be a personal option if you so choose.

Customers who remain mindful that closures are delicate, and adopt a
healthy regiment for usage have great results.
