Thando Kafele: Advice from the Lock Star

Natural Hair During Colder Weather

A of my clients are more concerned with their style options, and are not convinced that natural hair provides versatility and beauty. Protective styling is very important during the winter months; both locks and other styles will need a large amount of moisture to stay healthy in the colder months.

Conditioning Your Locks

A lot of stylists don’t stress the importance of conditioning natural hair and locks. There is a misconception that conditioner will loosen up the locks. Hair needs more moisture in cold weather and hair and scalp treatments are very important.

How to Use Products at Home

Clients need to leave the salon with products and a follow up regimen. I suggest using a hooded hair steamer with Nourish & Shine cocktailed with Scalp Nourishing Serum, and then sit the client under the steamer for 10-15 minutes. If you don’t have a steamer you can do the same treatment using a plastic cap for 30 minutes. Use plastic cap with or without a dryer. However, for best results use a dryer.

During the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, you may notice that the cold weather has left your hair feeling dry and frizzy. Dry, damaged hair can become brittle and break easily, especially if you tend to overuse chemical processes such as perms, dyes, relaxers and straighteners. Dryness can also be caused by heat styling tools such as blow dryers, flat irons and curling irons. Naturalistas everywhere are looking for a way to add some moisture to their dehydrated tresses. After all, nobody wants crunchy, frizzy hair for Christmas.

Terrific Twist-Out Tips

0 Comments

Twist-outs are one of many hairstyle options one can do to maintain healthy hair. It requires no heat usage, thus preventing heat damage. It can be worn for days at a time, therefore requiring little mechanical manipulation to our tresses. With twist-outs there is no tension on the scalp, and thus no damage to the hair follicle. What’s more? It is a cute hairstyle for any length of natural hair! Here are 3 tips to help your twist-outs last longer…with the use of Jane Carter Solution Natural Twist Out Foam:

  • Wear smaller twists to make them last longer.

For some naturals, twisting down to the very ends of the hair can lead to twist-outs with frizzy ends.  An alternative method is to twist until just before you reach the ends of your hair and then coil these ends around your finger.

 

  • Twist hair when 25% dry.

Twisting on dry hair will produce a twist-out that only lasts for a short period; it’s important to twist on wet or damp hair in order to achieve optimal definition and a longer lasting style. Avoid twisting on hair that is 100% wet; fully wet hair is more prone to breakage via tension while twisting.

 

  • Protect your hair during your beauty sleep.

Minimize frizz by using a satin bonnet; for those with medium to long hair, put your twist-out into 10-12 big twists and cover with a satin bonnet. In the morning undo the big twists and fluff into your style. For those with shorter hair, there is no need to re-twist prior to bedtime.  Simply cover with a satin bonnet; in the morning, remove the bonnet and fluff your hair.

 

You can enhance your curl definition by mixing Jane Carter Solution Curl Defining Cream to the Natural Twist Out Foam. Finish with Nourish & Shine for a boost of moisture and shine.

Tightly coiled hair is prone to shrinkage, susceptible to dryness and vulnerable to frizz; proper nourishment and thorough conditioning is critical when styling and cleansing. Keeping hair moisturized and using styling products that will lock the natural curl pattern into hair without encouraging any frizz is the answer! Follow these tips to recreate her defined coils…

 

  • While hair is wet, add a liberal amount of Wrap & Roll; pull it through to the ends of hair.
  • Section hair, apply a generous amount of Curl Defining Cream through the hair and finger comb.
  • For added shine and to seal in moisture use a pea sized amount of Nourish & Shine as a finisher.

 

Perfectly defined curls that are moisturized and free of frizz!
