Frequently Asked Questions
 
For those clients who have relaxed or naturally straight hair, prior to crochet install, shampoo and condition hair. DO NOT BLOW DRY OR FLAT IRON HAIR. Towel blot and allow your hair to air dry. Hair that is either relaxed, naturally straight, flat ironed, or blown out does not provide a secure foundation for crochet braids and can cause the foundation to loosen quicker. 

What are Crochet Braids? 

Crochet Braids are a protective hair style that has been around for many years. The first Crochet braids were tiny wavy braids that were not flattering. Its back, new and improved with a variety of hair to choose from. Your hair is braided in cornrows and the hair is crocheted in with the crochet needle. Crochet Braids are a protective hair style that has been around for many years.

 
How long can the style last? 

It can last up to 8 weeks, it really depends upon you. Wrapping your hair nightly is MOST IMPORTANT.

 
How many packs of hair will I need?

Each person's head is different, when we have a consultation, I will inform you based upon your desired style.

 
Do you work out of a salon? 
No, I am a Mobile Stylist, which means I will travel to you. All you have to do is shampoo and condition your hair, I will do the rest. Many people find it more convenient than traveling to a busy salon or some strangers home.
 
I have had Crochet Braids before with the Kanekalon hair one time and Marley hair another time, rodded and dipped in hot water, after 2 weeks it was matted, WHY?  
That boiling hot water makes the hair HARD. It is GORGEOUS at first, then it becomes a ball of hard hair. I don't recommend this style, only because it mattes after the first or second week. A better alternative is buying that hair style in packs, pre-dipped. I will never perform a style on my clients knowing, it will only last a couple of weeks.
 
Do I have to have those knots?
Yes, however I install my knots very tiny.
 
Will the hair tangle or matte?
If it does tangle don't panic, a little synthetic hair detangler or alcohol-free mousse applied to the hair will not hurt and you can pull any tangles out, section by section. ( I would NOT apply any oil or oil sheen on the hair unless its human hair, it will give the hair a very shiny, plastic look, also synthetic hair does not require it.)

Can I shampoo Crochet Braids?

Yes, all you need is a spray bottle, shampoo and water. Fill your spray bottle half way with shampoo, the rest warm water. Shake very well and spray your scalp and hair. I allow it to stay on for 45 minutes and I gently scratch my scalp to lift the buildup. Then, get in the shower and rinse 2 or 3 times with luke warm water, towel blot and air dry. NEVER USE HOT WATER, it may change the texture of synthetic hair.

 
How is this protective style better than wigs, weaves or braids?

GREAT QUESTION!  Wigs smother the scalp, and does not allow your natural hair to breathe, it also can create a FUNGUS on your scalp( which will cause hair loss). Weaves and Braids put the most stress on hair follicles, it may look absolutely wonderful initially, but over time you will loose your edges, and the balding will begin. With crochet braids, your hair is protected in the cornrow, yes like weave. But the difference is NO THREAD IS USED AND THE GLUE APPLICATION IS NEVER GOOD FOR THE HAIR OR SCALP. The only thing that is crocheted in to the braid is soft hair.

 
How can I get Crochet Braids if I have bald spots or no edges around my hairline? 

Many of my clients have retired there weaves and braids, thus there hair is thin and many are balding in spots. So, they are starting over which is fine. I simply apply synthetic hair to cornrow your hair or a net. A lack of edges can be camouflaged with curly hair, until your natural hair grows back in those spots. 

 
What can I apply to my scalp to promote healthy hair growth?

Stay away from hair grease and mineral oil, yes we all grew up greasing our scalps, but it clogs the pores. Virgin olive oil in the grocery store is wonderful. Rosemary, Tea tree, Macadamia, Argan oil are some oils that are light and have antifungal properties and they will not clog your pores.

 
Do you crochet your hair? 

Yes, all my styles are crochet braids. I have worn weaves, wigs and had braids before. My hair was severely damaged and I had bald spots. I have grown my natural hair back and its thick.

 
How do you know so much about hair? 
My aunt was a Cosmetologist and I learned a lot from her before the age of 10. I am constantly researching learning more about hair care. I NEVER speak on what I assume, I speak what I have learned through trial and error, documentation and facts. I acquired over 1000 hours of Cosmetology myself, I chose not to finish Cosmetology School, because I didn't want to focus on doing relaxers, perms, weaves and colors on my clients. I wanted to focus on healthy hair, but I still gained knowledge regarding the scalp, how the hair grows, and the Do's and Dont's to maintain healthy hair.  (F.Y.I. 11 states out of the 50 states, DO NOT require a license to braid hair, and Georgia is one of the 11 states.)
 
Is alopecia reversible? 

Yes! Taking Biotin, clean eating, drinking plenty of water and massaging the scalp daily with pure virgin olive oil will grow your hair back. Many people don't know that different doctor prescribed medications, nicotine, consuming alcohol regularly and stress will contribute to hair loss as well.
