This month the Micros Braids style is the style of the month. Micros braids has been out for a long time. I can remember back in the 80's when I was a little girl my mom was at the salon and a lady was sitting in the chair next to my mom getting her hair braided by the stylist in these tiny braids. After we left the salon, I asked my mom why she didn't get her hair braided like the lady with the long braids and my mom said baby that cost alot of money. Now in 2010, some of everybody is wearing the micro braids style, and even the white girls. some hair braiders may charge from $80 to $300. There are some things you need to know before installing Micro braids in your hair. First make sure your hair is in good condition. If your hair is breaking off and you have thin edges, I wouldn't recommend Micro braids, because the hair is very fragile and you can damage your hair more. Second,if your hair is in good condition and it has been two week after you have applied a relaxer, start with given your hair hot oil treatment and a deep conditioning, if helps to prevent hair breakage.Now you can install your Micro braids, but make sure the hair braider don't braid to tight, because that can give you white bumps on the scalp and cause damage to the root of your hair. For maintenance you should shampoo and condition your hair or use a dry shampoo to keep your Micro braids looking and smelling fresh. Better Braids oil spray is good for moisturizing your braids or any moisturizer you prefer.Micro braids should stay in your hair at least two months at a time.

Since winter, many had to protect their hair from the cold weather that can be very hardish on the hair and scalp.Now spring is here, and many are wanting a fresh new hair style. It you have always wear your hair long cuting a little or some layers want hurt, for the straight hair sisters you may want to rock some curls to set off the new spring of the year,and for my short hair sisters give yourself some length to have your hair flowing in the air when you're at the beach. Oh! yes don't forget to add some color to that dull hair.

Loc extensions has become very popular for the pass four years now. I can recall the first time I installed loc extensions it was on myself. I had a bad experience getting my loc extensions install in Atlanta and I was not please how they look after they were completed. I drove two hours to waste gas and money because the stylist didn't listen to what color hair I wanted or the size I wanted, the stylist did the opposite. When I return home those loc extensions were out my hair because I was to embarrass to be seen. But I did learned a new techniques on how to install loc extensions. So the next week I went online and order Afro kinky human hair and installed my loc extension myself it took me some days, but I was satisfied. I invested $400 to achieved the length and size I wanted ,but as months went by my natural hair started to grow I would cut off inchs of my loc extensions. My Natural hair is pass my shoulders now and 3 inchs form there is Loc extension some people cut off thier loc extensions and some don't. You should always consider doing your research when wanting to installing loc extensions don't just rush to sit in someone salon chair because they do loc extensions. Ask question like;Can I see pictures of your work?, What kind of Hair do you use? Is it human hair?,How much do the hair cost? Loc extensions is care for just like natural locs.Some people with natural loc use the afro kinky hair to repair or add length to thier natural locs. Now the price for loc extensions is very high some salon charge from $500 to $1000. People ask me why I started my price from $260 to $500 and not higher, because I love what I do and Its not all about dollar signs. Im here to make people look and feel good about them selves and the money will follow.

Well this month I've been busy working on my new hair care line for all hair types, and nationalties.The name is Mother Earth's Natural Hair Care, and I've been doing alot of researching and experimenting on different natural ingerdients. I'm also working on and buliding an online hair care store and I pray that it will succeed, in Jesus name,aman. The other day was in the health food store picking up some essential oils and I discovered a new health/beauty product name Bentonite Clay. I asked one of the store clerks what it was,and he explained that people use it on their face or drink it with water to clean out the toxins in their body,face and hair,so I bought me about 6 ounces to try it.When I got home I looked up Bentonite on YouTube and it were several videos on Bentonite Clay. Some people were demonstrating how they use it on their hair and some on their face. I also researched Bentonite Clay at Botanical.com were it gave me all the information and history about the Bentonite Clay, so if you have time take a peep you might find it interesting.Peace ,love and Hair Grease.
