Brazilian Virgin Hair Cheap - Brazilian Curly Weave Hair

Mon, 05 May 2014 11:07:00 +0000

If you have ever felt Brazilian hair you would know instantly what the allure is. You may be a weave or wig wearer or you may make wig or do weaves, but you do know that a quality finished product has to start with the best hair.

Quality Brazilian virgin hair can be processed to your specifications and is chosen because of it's full body texture and soft feel. Women of color love it because it resembles relaxed, straightened or curled healthy textured hair.

Virgin hair can be:
  • bleached
  • relaxed
  • dyed
  • permed
    Buying Cheap Virgin Brazilian Hair may not be what you mean...
    Hair that is considered cheap may have it's own issues and concerns such as coming from a dead person or unaligned cuticles which can bring you infections and snarling hair. There is a reason for hair being cheap. Virgin Brazilian hair does not grow on trees and take time to cut, clean and prepare before being sold. 

    The hair is normally from one donor and is cut and tied directly. However some are from several donors and aligned carefully with the cuticles all facing the same directions to prevent hair from becoming unruly or tangled. Then there is transporting, tagging, packaging and shipping. There is a cost and you have to pay it.

    Affordable hair is more likely what you meant. Virgin Brazilian hair is sought after with good reason and the cost can be very expensive. Some will ask the suppliers for proof of authenticity if the price is too extreme. But no worries; for affordable virgin quality hair you can go to Amazon for Brazilian curly weave hair and make your safe purchase and be blown away from the quality.

    How To Open A Money Making Hair Salon Business

    Wed, 25 Jan 2012 05:40:00 +0000

    (image) The hair salon business is booming and there are thousands of graduates everyday. Most dream of someday owning their own salon but don't think about the very basic ingredients it takes to own and run a successful hair salon.

    After finally finishing beauty school and becoming a great stylist and getting your cosmetology license many run out and prematurely open their first salon just to have it inevitable happen, it has to close.

    When opening a beauty salon you have to first experience how a salon is ran by experience and training from every level. Building a successful salon does not begin with great styling but with discipline,great discipline and organization.

    • skilled staff
    • budgeting
    • problem solving
    • online presence
    • marketing
    Of course  this is an important criteria for your staff but with ongoing training your stylist can be molded into a great team by:

    • staff meetings
    • training
    • support

     I mention team because among the other responsibilities you will have to know how to work with a team and teach the team how to work together during business hours as professionals. They should not feel as if they are in competition with one another after all clients will see your skills and go with whomever has what skills they need at the time... it isn't personal, just business.

    When you learn how to concentrate on being your best and being professional people will tell their friends; but if you don't, they will tell the world! 

    Money can buy you a salon, but a hair salon with professional and skilled talent will assure you a very successful hair salon business you will be proud of. It is very important to place yourself in salon training during and after graduating beauty school to gain the experience of running every aspect of a hair salon.

     Many franchise salons have training programs a new stylist can take advantage of before taking the leap into ownership. Learning how to open a successful money making hair salon business is in your future should you except the responsibilities before you.

    Growing Out Relaxed Hair Care Tips-Relaxer Tips

    Tue, 17 Jan 2012 00:26:00 +0000

    Chemically hair relaxing for a more manageable style is what thousands if not million have been doing for years. A hair relaxer is when your natural wave pattern is removed by a chemical straightener.Many have chosen hair relaxers for the performance they see on commercials,others and word of mouth. But the age old question "why isn't my hair straight?" keeps surfacing even thought the finished style is great.People relaxing their hair want their hair to be bone straight when their hair is wet and dry.This is not likely to happen 100% of the time with every hair type. African American hair is shaped differently depending on the origin of the parents and parents parents. Basically the hair is in a coiled shape. This coil may be tighter the closer to African descent versus a lesser coil resembling a wave.The natural wave pattern of your hair is the safest pattern for your your to be healthy. In your natural state your bonds are close together and tight causing a stronger tighter hair. When this bond is altered by chemicals, your hair is weakened to some degree and there is a loss of natural oils that have been removed. Chemically altered hair must be conditioned and treated every week to keep the hair balanced and healthy or it will become weak, dry and break.Relaxing Tips For Cream Hair RelaxersThe relaxing process of the hair is what straightens out the hair. The relaxer chemical only relaxes the hair curl or wave. The person that is applying the relaxer determines with their experience when to remove the chemical.Most relaxer products will tell you when to remove the relaxer depending on the hair texture. But a professional knows that all hair is not created equal and may need a different time limit for a more softer less porous hair or a thicker more porous hair.A professional will apply the chemical and once hair is softened will begin where product is first applied to physically straighten the hair in small or large sections with the back of comb or hands until each section is straight.Hair is then checked until the wave pattern is relaxed and left on longer until hair is able to hold the new pattern once heavy cream is smoothed off.It is this crucial step that is sometimes missed. A stylist or consumer may not have the experience to analyze hair until the desired straightness is achieve and remove the relaxer. This is also the safest thing to do if not sure or experienced. Your hair will still perform well with rollers or other styling appliances.How Straight Should Relaxed Hair Be?Determining how straight hair should be when getting a relaxer is best done with a consultation with a stylist that know your hair. You can however have a more experienced professional that can relax your hair the way you want the first try but you may not understand why....Firstly stylist come with all different types of experience and education. (I do expect you to get dizzy now) There are stylist that know how to read and analyze hair and prepare it before the chemical process is to be done while others will just base your scalp and apply regardless of the hairs analysis.Of course the hair that is not in the best shape and is lacking will revert leaving a straight look now and a less straight look when air-dried. It is the healthiest hair that can be relaxed and maintain a straighter relaxed look.Just imagine not using lotions on your hands for a month they will become ashy and dry. Now imagine buying a great hand lotion that claims to stop all the dry skin for a week. This product may not work for you because you have not been caring for your skin on a regular basis. The same is true with relaxed and hair with other chemicals the more you properly care for your chemically relaxed hair the better results you will get from your efforts.No worries begin today cari[...]

    When you make the decision to growing your hair longer you will also be making a decision to being more aware of the products and heat you use to groom it.

    There may be simple things we do that cause stress to our hair that we are unaware of, such as:

    • Excess heat
    • Exposure to long term sun
    • Exposure to extreme cold
    • Lack of moisturizing product
    • Lack of conditioning
    • Tight hairstyles


    We have to protect our tresses from the brutal cold air and the dry indoor heat. Silk or satin lined hats can give your hair added protection to prevent winter dryness and breakage.

    Remember to never go to sleep without wrapping your hair or to never allow your hair to rest on wool fabric that dry and pull out strands of hair.



    6 Tips To Growing Longer Hair  

    1. Wrap hair each night.
    2. Wear satin lined hats.
    3. Cover car head rest with satin or silk.
    4. Wear satin/silk scarves over wool coats.
    5. Moisturize every night.
    6. Deep condition every week or two. Alternate with hot oil treatments.

    Breaking and shedding begins slowly and by the time winter is over you would have lost inches of hair. Buy silk or satin scarves, hats, and pillow cases. Buying an extra satin cap will allow you to cover your car seat for a barrier between your hair and the car upholstery.

    Use these hair care tips will help to prevent and stop winter hair loss, breakage and dryness during the winter months. For more valuable hair care tips I suggest you get your own copy of this Hair Care Guide  with tips to growing longer  hair.(image)



    Find Out How Long Should African American Braids Styles Stay In

    Mon, 12 Dec 2011 04:35:00 +0000

    Leaving braids in hair is of great life saver and concern to many, such as people on the run with school, work, and other activities that cause us to seek convenience in hair braiding.Braided hair will last long if done properly. Great braiding is not enough if hair is not properly prepared. What good is a great style now if your about to lose your hair later?Because of our many textures and scalp conditions the time varies for many of us. I would suggest that hair braids ideally be left in for only 2 weeks. But the truth is they can stay in for up to six month for hair that grows slow or is not to fine causing stray hair to come through.When hair begins to twist a root area, take them out or they will lock. Our hair sheds and can make the process of detangling hair impossible. Just don't get upset when looking at the loose hair in the comb.Just be sure your applying proper hair care maintenance.Hair naturally sheds everyday and will shed more if braids aren't moisturized at least every 3 days. This is also why when growing dreadlock they maintain a certain thickness. The shedding hair compliments and locks the dreads .How To Prepare Hair Before BraidingBefore braiding, hair should be shampooed and conditioned. If dandruff is a problem, a treatment should be used first and during the time hair remains braided. (sulfur 8 in the blue jar).If hair is excessively dry, an oil or deep moisturizing treatment is advised. Blow dry hair one section at a time. Put leave in conditioner or blow dry lotion before adding heat.Brush section and hold stretch out while blowing with hi warm to force out water.Now use blow dryer with comb attachment or big vent brush to continue blowing section straight.There is no need to get perfectly straight for braids.FYI: If braiding with synthetic hair do not put oils in hair if burning tips until after the braids are done. However dipping synthetic hair ends in very hot water will relax the end and replace the need for burning ends. Hair can be put in large braids before dipping to make waves in hair. Cool before taking out.Why Braid Styles Can't Stay In Too LongHair looking unkempt. Lint and product build up. Dried out hair . Locked in braids. Extreme Hair Shedding.Take Braid Styles Out To Prevent Further Problem or Discomfort Problem dandruff Don't wrap hair. Sweaty scalp from workouts or health . Itchy scalp. Too tight braids. Too Loose Braids.Dusty environments such as work can mean a dirty head of hair that must be taking a loose and redone. Cornrows can be left in about two weeks with your own hair if it is wrapped and protected every night. Light moisturizing spray or leave in conditioner will lay stray strands down before wakening:) Individual braids can be left in longer (3-6 wks) and shampooed while in.But should never be allowed to twist at scalp . FYI: Some add in extension hair to allow hairstyle to last longer.Put this feed on your website.[...]
