DOUBLE HYDRATION...this is a sourdough emmer wheat boule with 83% hydration that @adam_soder @bageripetrus perfected.

The crumb stays moist for days and the texture is “creamy” on your tongue. If you never tried the double hydration technique, it’s definitely about time to do so! #sourdough #sourdoughbread #sourdoughbaking #emmerwheat #artisinalbread #doublehydrationtreatment #bakebread

The combination of blowfrying your curls straight on top of bleached highlights is a recipe for disaster.

The bleach acts like sand paper on jeans gradually removing the density of the hair shaft and exposing the light hair underneath. Blowfrying on top will add more damage. This will result in breakage and extreme frizz. You will notice how the ends don’t look polished and curls will start to lose that spring factor. It will continue to break and cause you to lose length. This is the sad reality. There are so many heat protecting serums but they won’t protect your hair from the severe heat while you’re stretching out the curls.
@lalatheislandgal spent the last few years gradually bleaching her hair and blowfrying it straight and realized the hair isn’t looking as healthy as she wants it. I decided to do the @olaplex treatment # 1 since it’s the most potent of their products to help bring back that bounce and life curls usually have. I followed it with my custom blend #DoubleHydrationTreatment for added moisture. When diffusing make sure you point the air flow from roots to ends to prevent the curls from separating. Take your time drying to lock in the moisture and get the most shine. We did not gloss it yet since she wants to darken it soon.

@vaelonmaze reached out because she needed to get her curls on the right track.

I was able to help her with as much info as possible to get her curls to feel better. She decided to make the trip from Atlanta for a haircut because she wanted her curls to thrive. Besides giving my clients the best possible cut I can within my ability, it’s also my desire to send them home with as much knowledge as possible so they can maintain their hair on their own. I’m grateful for every single person that trusts me with their hair. Special gratitude goes out to anyone willing to drive or fly across the country or from other countries to have me do their hair. Find a job that brings you joy and you’ll never complain about going to work.

U mnie dzis poszedl w ruch system nawadniajacy. Kiedy mam troche wiecej czasu staram nałożyć maskę na dłużej, a potem moje wlosy mi za to podziękują.

😜 Do tego ampulki z kwasem hialuronowym, ktore sa super na przesuszone wlosy!! Moje loczki potrzebuja tego nawodnienia.

Są to rewolucyjne, opatentowane produkty, których nie znajdziesz w branży fryzjerskiej.

Monat spędził lata na opracowywaniu, testowaniu i przesyłaniu tych nowych produktów do badań klinicznych.

Produkty zawierają kwas hialuronowy, który utrzymuje 130-krotność własnej wagi w wodzie i jest dobrze znanym składnikiem w pielegnacji. Monat Serum w ampulkach to hair filler! :)

Badania kliniczne Monatu pokazały ze produkty te:
💧Przywracaja elastyczność wlosów
💧Poprawiaja stylizacje wlosow
💧Zwiększaja blask i kolor
💧Przywracaja witalnosc
💧Absolutna innowacyjna wysoka jakosc pielegnacji

Today marks my 26 year anniversary of doing hair. I never dreamed that a pandemic would happen in my lifetime and I would be forced to close my salon for so long.

I learned a very valuable lesson to PIVOT & THRIVE and I’m making the best of it. I’m grateful for my wonderful clients who have invited me to their gardens where I can do what I love. I met this lovely old oak tree and I couldn’t resist embracing it. I hope you find a career that brings you this much joy.

Let’s talk about detangling and why it’s so important. Everyone sheds hair.

It’s how our bodies generate new growth. But what about the hair that sheds? They say a person will lose about a 100 strands of hair daily. Curly hair doesn’t just slide off the head like straight hair. Where does it go? It stays in your hair and wraps itself around the hair that is still attached.
Finger detangling is the safest way because your fingers unlike a hard bristle of a comb or a brush will feel that tangle and be able to detangle it without ripping it by brushing or combing thru it. The best way to detangle is in the shower with conditioner. Leave your conditioner on for as long as you can while you shower to allow the steam to help the conditioner do its job. Once it’s been on your head for a few minutes it will be so much easier to detangle. If you feel your hair is tangled before you wash it, you can try and separate them gently with your fingers but don’t brush dry curls. That could create so much breakage and lead you to lose length.
Your ends are your oldest hair. They’ve been there the longest. Just like an old sweater or car tires, eventually with time you will see some fraying or loss of tire mass. It’s a natural occurrence and it can’t be stopped but it can be helped by being gentle on your ends.
This is why regular trims are so important to keep your ends as blunt as possible. When your ends are split they will get caught on each other and because it’s the weakest hair you’ll end up with breakage.
It’s so important to follow these simple steps to avoid having tangles you can’t unravel. If you have children, please don’t let their hair get tangled and matted because sometimes it can’t be removed unless it’s cut and it could be traumatizing. Teaching kids and teens these simple tips will allow them to enjoy their natural curls.
Part of the service is also educating our clients because they will be the ones caring for their hair. I’m always grateful for parents that go the extra mile to make sure their kids’ hair is in the best possible condition.
Any questions?

Life is full of hard work. Some days we spend on seemingly purposeless things and other days we move mountains.

You can choose to see work as a curse or as a blessing. It's all about perspective. It's about understanding ourselves, our identity and what we're called to do.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
When work is solely seen as a way to accumulate wealth, it begins to lose its appeal in our hearts.

All I did was change my shampoo and conditioner. I’ve learned consistency is key for sure.

I honestly think the best place to start is the hair quiz. That’s how I figured out what my hair type needed. My hair is naturally dry + coarse so mine was pretty specific. As for the curl cream + mousse, I love love love those are my fav products other than the staple shampoo + condish. Everyone’s different tho, depends what’s your wanting. I truly just love the products and want to share what’s worked for me. I don’t want like a full other business haha aka not DYING to sell sooo I’m totally honest about what products I have and haven’t tried! I’m still on my journey but confident enough to say I’m really loving it and do want to share.

Love these masques! I use them even when we aren’t entering winter season.

So here’s the difference between each from the top down! Which have you tried and which is your favorite?

Heavenly hydrating masque : an ultra-hydrating lightweight gel cream masque for dull, lifeless, thirsty hair. Like a heavenly cloud of hydration! This ones really thin and liquidy. It’s not my super fav bc I like really thick masks, personally. But it still does a really good job at hydrating

Super moisture masque : restores dry, brittle hair to its soft silky condition, providing moisture and replenishment ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Replenish masque : (my personal favorite) repairing and hydrating. Ideal for moisture starved hair. I use this after my smoothing shampoo and conditioner about once a week. It smells divine and makes my hair silky smooth! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Also - has anyone gotten the charcoal masque? Any thoughts on it??

Get your hair winter ready ! Advanced hydrating shampoo, Advanced hydrating conditioner, masque, & free water bottle.

All for $75 - this weekend only!!

The ~funniest~ upline. k im done, don’t miss this opportunity! I’ll teach ya all I know. 🤩

Just finished the video on how spencer asked me to marry him + how to use the hydration double action hydrating serum!

🙈 Now I’m pooling with pals, what are you doing today?! The double hydrating serum juuuuust might be my new favorite, last time I used it my hair was literally sparkling. I finished the second vile this morning, gonna post the after pic tomorrow.

For my curly ladies ; I highly recommend the hydration serum is amazing even tho I’ve only used one vial I can already feel a difference in my hair - what frizz where?

I also combine the serum with the replenish mask (which is thee bomb.com) - you can see how soft my hair is and do you see that shine ? My lighting isn’t even that good.. let me help you transform your hair and give you the look you want - dm me ! Let’s talk... this is for everyone with all hair types ! Kids ! Even pets !

I love sharing my success stories. We started Maureen’s natural journey in June 2017 with the first cut.

She flies in from Huston twice a year to get the curl by curl cut from me. It’s grown so much and her curls are thriving. She ditched the bleach and threw away the BLOWFRYER and replaced them with curl friendly products. There are a couple pictures of her hair right after the cut before my #doublehydrationtreatment. Don’t you just love her curls?

THIS! There’s something special about seeing your curls for the first time.

I get so much pleasure from teaching everyone about their hair. It’s the best gift I can give someone to learn, understand, appreciate but most of all LOVE their own hair. I know how much she enjoyed her visit and the results. I had so much fun with this. Her hair looks longer because it’s hydrated with pure moisture. The #DoubleHydrationTreatment really helped achieve this look. It’s a treatment I customize per client while they’re in the salon. I’ve found a way to give dehydrates curls a boost to create definition and in this case CURLS! Thoughts?

When the balayage is prime.

😍 @shaiamiel from @capellasalon ! “H.Y.D.R.A.T.I.O.N is my favorite nation.

She wanted to give her curls some contrast. Curl by curl cut, hand painted sun kissed highlights & my customized double hydration treatment to get these curls to move. It’s nice when you’re growing out your hair after the big chop to see the progress. Even though we both love this length, I’m going to help her grow it out longer. I only use color when I work with curls; NEVER bleach to maintain the integrity of the hair. Don’t you love the movement & shine? #doublehydrationtreatment to the rescue.” #curlynatural

This is how I’m able to get her curls to look longer.

After the curl by curl cut, we did a cleanse to remove the buildup. Followed that with the #doublehydrationtreatment. Don’t skip the detangling process. We use our fingers to separate the curls because you can feel the tangles and they won’t rip your hair like a strong brush or a comb. The combination of hydration and detangling really allows her curls to form naturally creating so much movement. Any questions? Comment away. I’m here for you.

I fixed her hair with the curl by curl cut to even it out.
