We are here to service your locs regardless of their condition. For starter locs, we offer the coil technique for hair lengths shorter than 5 inches. The two strand twist technique is used for hair lengths 5 inches and longer.
It is recommended you cover the hair with a silk or satin bonnet or a loc cap at night and use a shower cap when bathing. If you work around a lot of dust or dirt it is feasible to cover the hair while working to avoid any debris getting trapped into the hair shaft.
For maintenance, it’s recommended that you come into the salon every 2-3 weeks for shampooing and conditioning, depending on the amount of buildup on the scalp and hair. You also need a hot oil treatment to retain the necessary oil in the hair. The loc maintenance techniques offered are palm rolling, interlocking or finger rolling. If you have already started your locs we can help maintain them. We offer you the basics as well as specialty treatments including: manicuring and clipping, mending weaken locs, loc repair and herbal rinses. Allow us to pamper your locs so that they will grow healthy, strong and lush.
We offer loc extensions. This is a simulated loc procedure utilizing kinky human hair and is recommended for those who want instant locs. The loc extension procedure can be used for locs that need repair, or to lengthen your locs, or to make some of your locs that may have thinned appear thicker. Our loc extension process allows "you" to have locs almost instantly. The process of growing locs, which can take months and sometimes years, depending on your desired length, can now be achieved in a couple of days. This is a style you must plan for in advance. A consultation is required for this service.
In the consultation process, a hair analysis will take place and tester locs will be applied to the hair to determine if you are the ideal customer for the service. The color, size and number of locs will be decided upon. This is an investment that can be hefty. However, the results are stunning and undetectable. Even those who know “you” will marvel at the realness of your extension locs and will think you grew your locs overnight. What are you waiting for, call today to schedule your consultation and be on your way to having your dream come true instantly.
Curly, Kinky, Wavy Hair
Curly, kinky and wavy hair is inherently dry and porous. It needs all the moisture it can get. Because of the dryness, we tend to pile on oils, waxes and silicones to add moisture, shine and to control the curl. The buildup from these products can prevent your hair from breathing, and may cause damage, frizz and dehydration. In addition, this too will add to dryness. Our deep treatment penetrates each strand with a two-way moisturizing system which attracts moisture to parched areas as it seals in its inherent lubricants. We customize deep treatments for each customer and apply onto the entire mane. You are placed under a dryer/steamer for 15-20 minutes. The heat/steam allows the treatment to penetrate the hair shaft. Now your thirsty hair has been quenched.
Cutting curls, kinks and waves can be unpredictable. Sometimes they shrink, swell or even kink up when wet. Many think that wetting the hair will straighten and control the curl so cutting won’t be so difficult. They don’t realize this approach changes and creates more curl; making it impossible to check the accuracy of their work. We prepare your curly, kinky or wavy hair for an accurate cut by blowing it straight first. This really allows us to assess the state of your hair. We are able to see the true areas of damage or breakage, density, texture and length. It also allows us to impose a precise shape onto your curly hair. This is critical. Curly hair must have shape and balance to fall properly. Thinning, carving and notching are common methods used to deal with the bulk and texture. These methods look great in the salon (after professional styling and products are applied) but you are sometimes left with a haircut that is hard to understand when you go home.
Wearing your hair straight is even puzzling because of the various lengths and densities. Be sure to choose the right cutting method for your curls, kinks and waves. Choosing the right cutting method is critical to the growing out stage. Because of shrinkage, many Curlies come in less frequently for trims. They need a cut that will maintain its shape. We address the curl pattern and bulk with the “Angle and Balance Method” and through face framing angles, soft layering and light slicing. Our techniques allows for a graceful “grow out” stage. In addition, you will have the versatility of wearing your hair both curly and straight because the cut is balanced. The haircut will dictate the shape and the shape will dictate the final look of your hair. We offer a variety of curl sets that temporary change your curl pattern. Some of these sets include: Bantu Knot Set, Braid set, Coil Set, Double Strand Set, Finger Styling, Spiral Set, Shingling, Straw Set, Twist-outs.
