so whats a CARAMEL HAIR TREATMENT??

hair chocolate

A caramel hair treatment helps ladies who relax their hair to ‘stretch’ their relaxer for longer periods and helps people with natural hair by softening its texture for easier detangling and manageability. It’s a product in the E’tae product line that uses all natural ingredients from honey, bananas to olive oil.

This combination delivers in its ability to seriously soften and hydrate the driest and roughest hair textures.

 The caramel treatment is excellent for helping to straightening the natural hair as it takes less heat to get smoother results as well as better moisture retention.

Here are the ingredients and the purpose of each

As a stylist I adjust the recipe based on individual hair needs.

Honey – excellent humectant good for moisture
Olive Oil – For lubrication and helps with moisture retention
Bananas – Good for moisture and some protein benefits as well
Molasses – Another excellent humectant with some protein benefits
Water – This is the best natural moisturizer and is used to thin the mixture
Apple Cider Vinegar – For the shine it imparts to the hair
Cornstarch – For thickening purposes
Wheat germ oil – For strength and lubrication

Trust me your kitchen and fruit trees are a beauty haven

If this is all too much mixing & concocting you can try hair chocolate, its a great protein treatment that softens kink inbetween a relaxer or on natural hair,

do all protein treatmnets under pro guidance tho…. its serious business and u dont wanna risk damage

let me know what happens

One love

Healthy Hair Care System … my pro regime

How is your hair doing?

Is it healthy, shiny, and soft?  How fast does your hair grow?

If the answer to those questions isn’t a resounding yes then it could be that its not doing so good, i’m gonna give you a system to apply in your life to get your hair in tip top shape. Its 17 tips but Beauty is serious business & like all else “if u waan good, u nose haffi run”

The System

1. Invest in good quality salon brand shampoos & conditioners, if you don’t shampoo at the salon.  Shampoo every 7 to 10 days

2. Keep hair moisturized daily between washes with a coin sized amount of a good hair moisturizer dabbed through the hair with fingers. Avoid combing excessively.

3. Every 3 wks. wash hair with a sulfate free shampoo and deep condition with a light protein conditioner. Roller set the hair, (i know its tuff but u gotta sit under a dryer).

4. Rotate the conditioners (both moisturizing and protein) every other week so that the hair does not stop responding to it.

5. A hot oil treatment should be used on the hair every 4th Saturday.

6. If u go in for a flat iron straight style. Make sure to use heat-protectant serum or wax. Use only temperature controlled heat tools.

7. Apply a strong protein treatment to the hair a every 6-8 weeks or when you notice excessive breakage.

8. Make sure to use a strong protein treatment the week before the relaxer service. This is to strengthen the hair in preparation for the chemical.

9. Use the same or similar CORRECT relaxer with each touch up which should be every 2-3 months. You want to have at least 1- 1.5 inches of hair before relaxing, any sooner and you run the risk of over processing the hair.

10. If you self-relax, always use a neutralizing shampoo to wash the hair after the service. This will ensure that all the relaxer is removed from the hair and that the hair is restored to its normal ph level. The same should be applied if you go to a stylist for a relaxer touch up.

11. Use a caramel treatment a month after the relaxer touch up to hydrate the new growth and help to straighten it without using too much heat.

12. Do not braid the hair for the first 2 weeks after a relaxer service.

13. Keep hair braided for 2-3 weeks at a time especially if the hair is at shoulder length as it helps with length retention. If the hair is past this length then braiding is not necessary unless you want to!

14. When the hair is braided or you have a weave in, normal washing and conditioning must continue to keep the hair moisturized until you take down the braids.

15. Do not braid too close to the edges (small baby hairs) to avoid thinning of the hairline

16. Clarify the hair once every 6-8 weeks or when a lot of product has been used during the week to get rid of build up. Do not do this often to prevent the hair from feeling ‘stripped’ and dry.

17. Dust any split ends once every 6 months. Trim the hair only if you want full ends as your strands do not grow at the same rate. Trimming the hair more often will only serve to reduce the length gained and does nothing for the overall health of your hair.

INCORPORATE even a tidbit of my system into you life & i guarantee a change in your hair’s texture, strength & overall health, even track your growth every 3 months and send me pics 🙂

The regimen above can be changed to suit your hair’s needs or lifestyle.

one love,

HAIR TRENDS —–> TRENDY but is it for me?!

Hair trends come and go so quickly, it can be a challenge keeping up on the latest hair styles

Today I am exploring the Classic Bob, some call it the rihanna bob, nicki manaj has one, and jessica alba recently got one, ker hilson had it but——– is it for you???

The precision bob hair cut is huge this year, coupled with smooth, sleek styling, a blunt fringe and heaps of shine.

Your bob should be carefully crafted to maximize the effect of the style. Find a shape that will accentuate your unique facial structure, or highlight a long, beautiful neck.

This versatile style can range from ear length to shoulder skimming. It’s best for straight or slightly wavy hair. Perfect for fine hair because it adds fullness and prevents the straggly look fine hair can have when it gets too long

A bob hair cut is not always all-one-length. The “graduated” version, which is layered at the edges, gives this style a rounded shape, adding more volume to the top and sides.

And to add even more drama, opt for a “diagonal forward” slant (cut shortest in the back and angled down to longer lengths at the front), or crafted into anasymmetric hair cut, which is very hot right now.

If your hair or weave is too curly, a bob can take on the look of a triangle, widening at the bottom in an unflattering way.

But a subtle wave pattern adds interest and softens your bob, offering versatility.

Only use bangs with this hair style if it works with your facial structure. A heavy fringe can be overwhelming on those with a short forehead or small, close-set eyes.

Your stylist should be able to help you find the perfect bob for your face, hair and lifestyle.

And if you’re feeling a little more groovy baby… incorporate a mod feel or vintage look into your bob hair cut.

If u get the nicki bob on a wigJust make sure you get a quality piece that doesn’t look “costumey.”

Hope i helped you with rocking this trend right, 

see you soon
