I am so excited to share this blog with you,  because products knowledge is important to all of us.  There are all kinds of product out there to use,  but how do we determine what will work for some clients and not for others.   Products are the key to success,  it takes the work out of your services so that you can obtain what you want,  without the labor.   There are a few ways that you can determine what products  works for you salon.  You may have heard the old saying,  you can't use the same perm on everyone head,  which is true.   Products are determine by the service you offer,  so if you have the same similar clients,  with the same hair texture, and similar hair issues,  then you probably would not have to purchase too many different products.    However, if you have a mixture of clients then you will have to purchase a lot of different products,  to meet your clients needs.   The way I purchase products is based on products that meets most natural hair textures.    A stylist should know how to care for all hair textures.   When purchasing products,  know what it will do to all textures,  so if you do get a new client,  you can feel comfortable knowing that you got products for that clients as well.   A few years back,  I had a client that walked in for hair services,  and I was taken back because I didn't feel like I had products that were right for her hair texture.   I consulted with the client for what she wanted,  evaluated her hair and texture,  then book her for an appointment for another time so I could get what I needed for her.   She became a regular client,  and that taught me how important product knowledge is for all hair texture.   You just need to know that the products,  or brands that you use can benefit all textures you will be servicing.

Ladies you will be able to see coffee talk on my YouTube,  if you don't read it here,  see it on YouTube.   Tape ins are one of the services in our salon,  and I personally love them.   I wear them, and actually they are easy for me to take out.  Ladies, lets get started.

I have been trying to get the black ladies to wear tape extensions for a while,  because they offer no damage and just as easy to care for as a sew in.   Tape ins are trending now,  even among the black ladies,  so I felt this was a good time to start the conversation.

Tonya,  I don't think women, mainly black women feel that tape extensions are secured enough for them,   like the sew ins are.

Me,  That is actually correct,  for one thing black ladies put oils into the hair,  because a lot of times, we have dry hair,  and we need to keep some oils in hair to keep it moisturized.   I am told by a lot of my white clients that there hair is oily,  and that is why they  wash their more often is to keep the oils out of their hair.   However,  all ladies can enjoy tape extensions,   If the tape extensions are installed properly and the client follow instructions on the care of the extensions,  they will have no problem.

Nellie,  How can black ladies wear the tape extensions without loosing  them.

Me,  I am glad you asked that question.  All ladies have to prepare their hair for tape extensions or any extensions so that they look natural and flawless.   Once the hair is prepared,  then the tape extensions are installed.  Tape extensions has an adhesive that will connect to the hair,  and there are tools that can press the extensions onto the hair,  and you can also apply a little heat.   Once the extensions are properly installed,  the hair is connected to the tape so it won't come loose.  When you wash and shampoo your hair,  use a sulfate free shampoo and conditioner so that you don't get too much oil into the hair.  Make sure when you use oil sheen and hair spray,  don't use a lot near the connectors which is the tape.  To oil your scalp,  just use your finger tip and put a little oil to the scalp only,  you will not loose the tape extensions.         

Jen,  How long do they last?

Me,   You should have your tape extensions reinstalled every 6 to 8 weeks,  just like a sew in.  Human hair tape extensions will last for years with proper care, and they will be reusable for the life of the hair.  Human hair blend will be reusable for up to 6 months,  which means you will get at least 3 installs out of the hair, and synthetic a lot less time.. 

I hope that information has helped you,  and check out my shop at http://www.etsy.com/shop/shawzaeboutique  or our website at www.shawzae.com for more information on hair

This conversation isn't new and you may have heard some of the information  before,  but we do want to keep the conversation going to help you stay updated.  We have so many women and men with this problem that we have to keep the conversation going.    Thinning and aloppecia  hair isn't a age thing,  because we have a lot of young women and men with this problem. 

The conversation starts:  These are some of the conversations that I have had with some of my clients and friends,  so lets get the conversation started.

My hair started thinning when I started getting relaxers.........Sarah

The relaxers were probably too strong for your hair, and you should avoid having your hair relaxed until you know for sure if that is the cause of your hair loss.  I would recommend you start going to a natural hair salon so that you can get your hair healthy again,  let whoever you go know what happened, give them your hair story...........me

My hair is fine,  I guess I was born with it,  bad hair,  and it won't grow.......Mindy

When born with fine hair,  it is very important that you take special care of your hair to keep it healthy.  You should not put heavy products in your hair,  or extensions that will weigh your hair down.  If you would like longer hair,  or maybe get hair color,  get a custom wigs,  because this is not going to damage your natural hair., and also make sure you get healthy products for your natural hair.
Your hair thinning may be hereditary  but it can be healthy even if it's thin or fine ........me

My hair was taken out by a stylist,  and it's never been the same after the service....Tina

The stylist probably didst understand your hair,  and the products were probably too strong,  however,  you can get healthy hair again.   When you go to get your hair done make sure you give the stylist your hair story so that she can get a picture of the health of your hair.   A consultation and hair analysis is important......me

Join in the conversation and let talk about hair while we sip our coffee.

I love being in the beauty business, and making custom wigs are my hair haven.  I spent several months learning to ventilate,  so that i would have the skills to make lace wigs, frontal and more. I also had to do extensive research to learn about the human hair.  Through my research,  I learned how the hair was collected,  process, and the weight of the hair, including sourcing of the hair.  I was so amazed at this process,  and the people in India.   This process has also given me a whole understanding and outlook on the hair industry.  The knowledge that I have received  will allow me to create Shawzae Signature Full Lace Wigs.    I am so excited about this,  I am in the process of completing my first lace wig,  which is not raw virgin Indian hair at this time,  because I wanted to make sure that I could complete the task.   Check out my blog and YouTube for future information on this process.   I am waiting for the arrival of my raw Indian hair,  so happy about this journey.  If you are considering learning  to make custom wigs,  contact us at Shawzae Design School.  I will teach you what I have learned.   You will learn to create your own style and make custom wigs that people will love.

It is very important to keep your lash extensions clean and in good condition to prevent eye irritations, and other.  Lash extensions can be cleaned and should be as often as possible.  Most ladies will receive this service from the lash and brow spas,  however, for those who don't get this service, you can achieve this service on your own.   If you purchase human hair lash extensions,  or lash extensions that are reusable, you need this service.   You can clean your lashes by adding a drop of dish detergent, and a drop of oil,  using a clean mascara application or brow brush.  You need to dip your lash extensions gently in the solution,  brush gently and let them dry before reusing them.   When you are at the spa,  your lash extensions can be cleaned while you are wearing them.   It is important that  you keep your reusable lash extensions cleaned for the safety of your eyes.

Natural hair has always been my priority.  We have tremendous respect for the ladies that have gone natural over the past years.   I always say it doesn't matter what you wear wigs or extensions always take care of your natural hair.   Here are some tips on getting started on natural hair care,  it is nothing new,  however,  if you haven't been doing it,  this is a good time to start.

1   Always shampoo and keep your natural hair clean,  moisturize and trim,  this will help your hair growth.

2   Condition your hair in between shampooing so that your hair is getting the moisturizer it needs to grow.

3  Research the right products for your hair,  you may not believe it,  but products make a big different in hair care.  Some products take the labor out of hair care.

4   Pamper yourself and your hair by just taking a day for you and your hair. It will allow you to do extra things that you wouldn't normally do in your hair care maintenance.

Shawzae will be opening its hair braiding school soon.  We will be discussing hair care,  and signature treatments and more.  We will also be teaching you to braid hair safely.   There are two things that I see a lot of in hair braiders,  especially the ones that can braid,  I see that they braid the clients hair too tight,  and they don't stress the time frame for keeping braids in the hair.    We want to get away from those things and offer to the clients a high end hair braiding salons with lots of bells and whistle.  The most important of all is customer service and quality care.   You will learn all of this at Shawzae.
