Afro American Hair Style

Afro - American Hair Style

Forget the fairy tales. Neither cutting hair by the full moon nor the touch of magic hands nor applying a "miracle product" will make hair grow faster or longer than God intended. In fact, much about your hair--length, density and texture--is predetermined by DNA, the nucleic-acid formulas in cells that form the molecular basis of heredity. But with proper care and maintenance your hair can reach its lengthiest potential.

Why long hair? A sister with long hair is bound to turn heads. Joanne Cornwell, Ph.D., chair of Africana Studies at San Diego State University in California, our desire for length is probably influenced by messages we receive from the predominant European-based standards of beauty. "American culture has always associated beauty and femininity with long hair," says Cornwell. But in many African cultures hair denotes much more. "It tells your personal story--whether you are single or married, just had a child or is in mourning," she adds. Before you embark on the lengthy journey of growing long hair, examine your motives. What does it represent to you? "Hair should complement a woman's beauty," says Bill Lawrence of the Bill Lawrence Salon in Washington, D.C. "It shouldn't be what defines it."

How it grows Hair grows about a third to a half inch per month, in three stages--anagen (growth), catagen (resting) and tilogen (shedding). Dread-locks appear to grow longer and faster, but the growth cycle is not altered by the locking process. It "grows" long because the lock retains hair that would normally be shed.

Stunted Growth: The health of hair and scalp reflects the body producing it. Brian Thompson, a trichologist and director of product development at Philip Kingsley Trichological Centre, says opt for a good diet over megadoses of vitamins. "Hair needs energy and building materials--proteins and complex carbohydrates."

There may be far more than 100,000 hairs on your head, and you may lose between 50 and 100 a day, says Nashville dermatologist Dr. Denise M. Buntin. If you are losing more than that, or your hair doesn't grow at all, there may be a serious problem. Oral contraceptives, hormone-replacement therapy and medications for high blood pressure, depression, ulcers and cancer have been known to affect the growth of hair. So do systemic disorders, like lupus and hypo- and hyperthyroidism, and even crash diets. "When we are suspicious about clients' hair loss, we send them to their physician for a full check-up," says Thompson. "With their results we can pinpoint conditions, such as low iron, that affect the hair's health."

Breaking bad habits: Before assistant prosecutor Andrea Carter began making the biweekly journey from her New Jersey office to Lila's beauty salon in Harlem five years ago, her hair kept breaking off. She says, "I used to use a curling iron daily and have my relaxer touch-up every four weeks." Carter, like many sisters, couldn't understand why her hair wasn't getting longer. She didn't realize she was destroying her hair with thermal, mechanical and chemical abuse. Our hair comes in various textures, but it tends to be porous, as well as curly and elliptical, and is more vulnerable to damage than Caucasian or Asian hair.

Olive Benson of Olive's Solon in Boston believes stylists help perpetuate the cycle of destruction by using too-strong relaxers. Then they often follow up by using a curling iron from an uncontrollable heat source that literally burns off the ends. Another offense, says John Atchinson, owner of eponymous salons in New York and L.A., comes from stylists who, trying to give hair a straight, silky-smooth finish, stretch it with a round brush and a blow-dryer. Through healthier hair-grooming techniques--regular trims, relaxing less and opting for wet sets over blow-drying--Carter achieved more length. "My hair is much healthier now, and it hasn't been this long since before college," she says. Now I only use a curling iron in an emergency."

"Although hair products cannot grow hair [except minoxidil, a prescription solution that stimulates growth], they can create an environment that promotes the growth of healthy hair by minimizing breakage, optimizing moisturization and shine and strengthening hair," says Barry Williams, Soft Sheen Products' senior research chemist. Tress-saving tactics keep hair at its optimal best by working these hair-care practices into your grooming routine:

Keep the scalp clean. You don't need to "grease" it with heavy pomades or coat it with lacquer sprays that can clog pores.

Wash hair as needed, once every week or two, depending on your lifestyle.

Use a pressing cream instead of an oil to avoid frying hair.

Stimulate your scalp nightly: Use a large paddle brush or knead it with your fingertips.
Breakage minimizes to protect hair ends:

Always shampoo in the shower for easier detangling.

Choose a detangling comb to accommodate your hair's thickness. The thicker it is, the wider the teeth should be. When detangling hair, always start from the ends and work to the root.

Best Hair Tips

Best Hair Tips

Here are some great hair tips:

One of this falls more flattering hairstyle is the asymmetry bob. With its extremely angled sides and full front this style looks good on lots of face shapes. After washing, simply use some volumizer at the roots and blow dry with a round brush and lift as you dry.

Beauty Tip: What hair product was used on Lisa Kudrow's lightened hair to keep it healthy-looking during her “Friends” days? It is Potion 9 by Sebastian, and it is in our opinion, the ultimate product for silky, shiny hair. This product contains highly concentrated conditioners and makes even damaged hair look healthy and shiny. Since it is on the cutting edge of salon technology, it doubles as a leave-in conditioner and styling product, so you can have the best of both worlds. It is found in salons nationwide and now is available in select drug and discount department stores.

Beauty Tip: Want the latest technology in your hair care for healthy, shiny hair? Try Ojon Hair Styling Cream ($25,

Beauty Tip: Be careful when using styling products. Read the instructions first and use the smallest amount called for as a test. You may need more or less, but applying too much will make your hair look oily, unwashed and even dirty. If you do apply too much and have no time for a fresh wash, pull it all back and pretend you were going for the slicked back look. Don’t try using dry shampoo, it will just clump up and look even worse. Remember, more of a “good thing” isn’t always best.

Beauty Tip: What's hot in hair color right now? Brunette hair is back, but this time around, caramel highlights are all the rage.

Beauty Tip: For hot-right-now hairstyles, you might want to try a side part. Hairstylists say that this hair style flatters any face shape. Try a diagonal side part, by parting the hair at the front of the head at the side and then dragging the comb toward the center of your head at the back. Also hot right now is a half-up-do. Part your hair in the middle of your head from side to side so that your bangs hang flat in the front. Side swept bangs look best with this look. Then tease the hair at the back of your head to give it a Bardot-esque lift. Pin the teased hair up and then let the hair in the back and the sides hang down. Curl the ends for extra retro drama and be sure to don a few coats of mascara to complete the mod-romantic effect.

Beauty Tip: If your hair is normal to course, thick, color-treated, permed or damaged, select styling aids with silicone, oils, resins, plant mucilage (often in styling lotions, shine sprays and pomades) and the words gentle or moisturizing. Use sparingly.

Beauty Tip: Here's a great beauty tip - To be rid of fly-aways, rub a wire coat hanger across your hair, gently, or for more serious cases, rub a fabric softening sheet on your brush bristles. Use moisturizing products.

Beauty Tip: To be rid of hat hair, make finger curls with the long hair on top of your head, which the hat will be sitting on, by coiling hair around the fingers and clipping. When you get to your destination, take off the hat and uncoil the curls. Your hair will not be flat but will have soft waves instead.

Beauty Tip: If you forgot to wash your hair, but have to go somewhere, and it feels oily, sprinkle a little talcum powder on the scalp and then brush through the hair, being sure that it is no longer visible on the head. This is referred to as a dry-shampoo and should be used only in emergency situations. The talcum powder will absorb the oil. Wash your hair when you come home that day. A great trick for last minute invitations!

Beauty Tip: If your hair is oily or feels oily, after shampooing give it a vinegar or lemon rinse (lemon will smell better). Combine one part vinegar or lemon juice to 4 parts warm water and pour on the scalp. Rinse it out well. If your hair is chronically oily, do this once a week

Beauty Tip: Make your last rinse a cool one. This will help seal the cuticle, so that the hair will absorb more light and will shine more.

Beauty Tip: When your hair is in rollers, before taking the rollers out, blast them with cool air from your blow-dryer. This will help the curl hold longer.

Beauty Tip: Do not brush hair that has just been curled with rollers. Instead, use a pick. Pick from underneath to make curls springier and to give hair more body.

Beauty Tip: If you run out of conditioner you may use your facial moisturizer until you get a new one (basic moisturizers only, not ones with harsh "treatment ingredients" like AHAs, retinoids or anti acne ingredients). Do not, however, use your conditioner as a facial moisturizer; it may irritate your skin. You may also use conditioner if you run out of shaving cream.

Beauty Tip: To make your hair glisten beyond what shine enhancers can do, ask your salon if they give cellophane treatments. A gloss is applied to the hair which remains on the hair shaft for up to 6 weeks, before a new treatment is needed.

Beauty Tip: If you need to apply hair color to only certain sections of the hair, there are tools available at Sally’s Beauty Supply that resemble paintbrushes, but are used to apply hair color. Visit for a store near you or to get more information.

Caring Hair Weave

Caring Hair Weave

Wash the hair before application. This will remove any residue from processing. Wash the hair in the shower taking care to keep the hair hanging loose.

Avoid using cheap shampoos and hair products when you care for a hair weave, because these tend to dry out the weave. Also they contain more detergent than conditioners.

Avoid cheap conditioners as the conditioners tend to be watered down giving less than the needed amount of conditioning to keep the hair from drying out. Remember that this hair is not growing out of the scalp and is not being replenished with natural oils.

Apply shampoo and condioners evenly throughout the hair. Squeeze the product through the hair. Avoid scrubbing, rubbing or bunching the hair together. Condition the hair well with a good cream based conditioner. Care weaved hair by always being gentle with products and handling. Use a quality spray on conditioner that is meant to be left in. This will help keep the hair weave soft.

Pat excess water from the hair and allow the hair to dry completely before going to bed. Never sleep with the hair wet or damp. Let the hair air dry whenever possible. If you use a blow dryer, dry out the wefted part of the hairpiece first. Then finish drying the hair from the ends up. Avoid pulling the hair while wet. Avoid using excess heat.

Loosen hair every morning and before going to bed. Most tightly curled styles should never be combed. Shake out curly styles, comb through straight styles and use a wide tooth comb or fingers to loosen wavy hair.

Avoid applying direct heat to the bonded area.

Salt from perspiration, if allowed to buildup on the hair will strip the hair making it hard `and brittle. If you exercise, make a practice of rinsing and conditioning the hair after each workout. Shampooing after a workout is not always necessary.

Use a mild stringent on the scalp in between washings. Witch hazel works well.

If you use a blow dryer use one with a diffusing tool to better circulate the heat.

If you have bonded extensions, avoid applying heat to the bonded areas.

Most hair extensions have been processed. For this reason, we don't recommend you color hair extensions. If you find you must color to get a better color match, try coloring your natural hair to match the hair piece. Additional chemical treatment on hair extensions can make the hair frizzy dull and difficult to manage.

More about Braids and Weaves

Braids and weaves look great, and give you many styling and color options.

Care Tips for Braids

You don’t let your hair be pulled too tight during braiding. This can result in hair loss. When you have braids, you will have to shampoo less often than with other styles. Frequently shampooing may lead to frizzing and loosening. Moisturize your scalp daily. Cover your hair with a silk-like scarf or bonnet when you sleep. Never use cholesterol-based conditioners. Avoid human hair extensions if you swim frequently.

Care Tips for Weaves

Treat your weave like your own hair.
Comb and style your weave daily.
Avoid using gels.
Avoid weaves with glue and adhesives.

Brazilian Hair Weaving

Brazilian Hair Weaving

Brazilian hair is real human having a nice soft texture. It's not as like other ordinary human hair weaving available in retail hair shops. Actually ordinary hair weaving can’t be treated as natural human hairs and thus sometimes they get out of control. But this is not the case in Brazilian Hair Weaving.

You can dryer them, straight them, style them any way or color them and even swim with them on. Then also they will remain as natural and as soft as ever before. And that’s why they can be used many times then other types of weaves.

Now some Information on the Procedure:

Person’s hair is braided on his own scalp either horizontally or vertically. Weave-pieces are sewed over the cornrow with thick thread. And because of thick thread, Brazilian hair weaving stays firmly for a longer period. Number of weave pieces and braided cornrows depends on how heavy hairstyle one wants to have. Brazilian Hair Weaving takes about 4 to 5 hours to put them on.

Next, your whole head is weaved by braiding all hairs and then sewing the Brazilian Weave on top of the braids. There is no need to mix your own hair with the weave hair. Rather you will only able to see the weaves and not the braids. Now, with this weaves, you can make either bangs, a parted bang on the side or layers in front and anything you wants.

Some Benefits of Brazilian Hair Weaving:

  • You can comb hair with the Brazilian weave in.
  • You can leave a piece of your own hair in front.
  • You can weave your whole head.
  • You can also weave your curly, frizzy and or straight hairs. Anything is possible.
  • You can make a natural parting in the middle but if your own hair matches the Brazilian Hair Weave. But for this weaving you will need two packages of Brazilian Hair.
  • It stays longer than any other type of Weaves, normally for three months, can be up to four months but after three months the cornrows may loosen up because of your hair kept growing underneath the Brazilian hair weave.
  • It doesn’t damage your own hairs unless you comb your hair brutally. You should comb your Brazilian hair calmly.
  • Your hair will grows faster and healthy by this weaving.
  • You can use the Brazilian Hair Weaving on all types of hair.
  • You can also weave your full head because you not have to take care of 2 types of hair s (your natural Hair and the weaved Hair).

Taking care of Brazilian Hairdo:

Use a good shampoo and conditioner that you use for your own natural hairs. But wash your hair only once in a week or two. Massage gently with the top of your fingers with shampoo between the rows of the Brazilian weave hair. Rinse it out with a lot of water and repeat twice. After doing shampoo, most important thing is to BLOW Dry your hair as it can smell a lot, if remains moist or wet.


The average retail cost of the Brazilian Hair Weave for extensions is around $150 for a 4-ounce package. But other hair weaving processes have a cost ranging from around $500 to over $2000 depending on the type of hair used, and the amount of extension applied. Prices also vary based on the area in which you live. I can tell you that fusion extension hair is generally much more expensive than hair used for braid extensions or other types of extensions. It will generally take several packages to add extensions to the entire head.

Comb the product from the roots to the ends to give your hair lift. Separate hair into individual strands that are approximately 2 inches in thickness.

3. When hair is completely dry, separate into individual sections that are 2-3" in thickness. Prepare each section with a spritz of styling spray. Roll hair in preheated large diameter hot curlers. Let the curlers completely cool and then remove them carefully maintaining the new curled shape. Use your fingers and pin the curl intact against the head with bobby pins. Spray lightly with hair spray.

4. Continue to work around the head from side to side hot rolling or curling individual sections. As they cool off, remove each individual curl and pin in place. As a last step before you leave the house, spray all the pinned curls with a light hairspray. Let the spray dry. Working from side to side, carefully unpin all the curls one at a time.

5. Use a boar's bristle paddle brush to smooth the curls. Create a half up-half down style by separating an equal section of hair, approximately 1-2" thick that is equally spaced from the middle of each eyebrow.

6. Merge the two sections with the top of crown hair to form a seamless section of hair. For extra fullness, lightly back comb the newly created half-up section of hair along with the new quiff area.

7. Use your fingers to carefully arrange the remaining waves along the sides of the head into soft cascade patterns. Finish with a spritz of hairspray for more hold or apply a tiny dab of shine serum into the palms massaging well. Lightly brush the serum enhanced palms over the top of your strands for a quick shimmer.

Follow the initial shampoo and conditioning steps above:

1. For hair that has natural wave or curl, apply a cocktail of defrisant and straightening gel or a dab of leave-in conditioner with a straightening balm. If additional lift is desired, apply a volumizing product.

2. Finger pick through your damp tresses and then use a round brush while you blow-dry strands straight.

3. Direct the individual sections of hair over to one side as you blow dry to add volume at the roots. Aim the air from the dryer "down" the hair shaft from the roots to the ends.

4. When hair is completely dry, separate into individual sections that are 2-3" in thickness. Prepare each section with a spritz of stylinfg spray. Roll hair in preheated large diameter hot curlers.

Hair Thinning

Hair Thinning

Your hair could be thinning for many reasons, and exact reason can only be tell after a thorough medical examination. We are aiming to address the most common reasons on the known causes of hair loss, hair thinning and its treatment.

Most common reasons for hair loss or thinning are:

1. Genetics.
2. Illness.
3. Poor Diet.
4. Stress.
5. Medications.
6. Post-partum Alopecia.

Hair Thinning can be more or less caused by above mentioned reasons, but the most common reason in men and women is hereditary male and female pattern baldness. This accounts for 99% of all prematurely thinning or balding scalps.

According to an estimate, hair loss affects over 60 million people in American, in which 2/3rd are men. So, if you are getting a little 'thin on top,' you are not alone! Approximately 50% of men after the age of fifty experience this type of hair loss. Thankfully, medical science has got some dynamic breakthroughs that can help you to maintain your hair you've got left and possibly restore some of your lost ones also.

There are also some myths about causes of hair loss. Scientists have now determined that genetic male and female pattern hair loss is not caused by poor scalp circulation, 'clogged' hair follicles, microscopic scalp mites, the wrong shampoo or wearing hats or helmets, despite what the late-night infomercials may say. In addition, different hair-care products can affect the manageability and styling of your hair, and even hair breakage, but have no effect on the hair loss process.

Although itself hair seems simple, think of the incredible number of combinations of hair on different parts of his body. For example, your eye lashes are different from your eyebrows, the hairs on their arms, apart from the hair on his head. This genetic code in each and every one of his hair follicles (the small organ in the skin, hair products) requires that each hair color, length, curl, diameter of the shaft, etc. It is also genetic code; the hairs on various parts of the head react differently to the presence of certain hormones, as these two types of hair to start "looking exactly the same thing.

It is your DNA inherited from both parents at some point to see that your hair loss. For purposes of this article, you just have to know that with current technology, your genetic code evade your control, even if it can change in ten to fifteen years. However, you should be aware that even today, more than any other time in the history of medicine is in a position, the safe and effective management of treatment of alopecia.

The Hair Loss Process:

For men, hair loss may cause at any time after puberty, which, in general, adolescents, in the late 20 until early. Male Baldness begins as a typical recession in the hair of some depletion of the crown. This may finally progress over the years or decades, until confidence 'Mönch's Ring "of the hair.

Broadly speaking, women tend to see something else, and other models time of the outbreak of alopecia. Model female alopecia began in the late 40's to 50's, which typically without a recession in the hair. Some women are currently going through a shortage of density upwards, and the other rather thin from all major regions or on the entire scalp. Scientists are uncertain about the exact causes of female role models in the hair loss, but the feeling is it in relation to the hormonal changes.

As we have already mentioned, the process of hair loss in men is better understood. As an old man, "genetically susceptible" follicles on the scalp begin to miniaturization, in the presence of normal levels of hormones. These follicles in the frontal part of the hair and renewal of the head of the crown and head, and produce less become a hair, thinner and less progressive pigmented.

DHT also has an impact on the growth of follicles of these cycles, what they produce, their hair shorter and shorter, until finally follicles "die". It is the location of production are no longer always in the hair follicles and microscopic will heal. The hair on the sides and back, head is relative, because follicles standing in this area are not susceptible to the effects of DHT, and that is why almost all men alopecia ends in the same "model" to enable the `model of male pattern baldness. Given that the genetic code odd hair growth rates may vary with age and hair loss usually occur not on other parts of his body. That's why a man might still strong and full beard, when he lost hair on his head.

Hair Restoration Options For Men and Women

Though in history, artificial hair replacement in the form of a hairpiece might have been a balding person's only option. But now a myriad of cosmetic creams, sprays and powders are also currently available to those who would like to camouflage their hair loss. However, men and women who once might have chosen to cover their hair loss with attached artificial "systems" of wigs, hair weaving, toupees or hair extensions, now have truly viable medical and surgical options available to restore and maintain their hair.

Expertly done transplants is a simple method but exacting process, it requires an expert surgeon who has the expertise to perform the process, and the level of sincerity and attention to detail that is necessary for successful results.

Bikini Line Hair Removal

Bikini Line Hair Removal:

You can remove unwanted hair from Bikini Area using different methods. But when it comes to bikini area, it becomes little tricky for many reasons. The site is sensitive. Self-shaving becomes difficult. Waxing may be very painful. Electrolysis may be time consuming? Laser may be costly. What should a girl do? Let us discuss.


With shaving, there are possibilities of bikini bumps. Shaving has to be repeated frequently and the stubble that grows after shaving may be irritating. There are also chances of cutting yourself with shaving.


With electrolysis the removal is practically permanent. But some people find it painful. It is also quite time taking. You have to expose yourself unlike shaving but that also applies to waxing and laser.

Bikini hair removal can be achieved in a variety of ways. Some of the more popular ways of removing unwanted hair on the bikini line are wet shaving with a regular razor blade, shaving with an electric shaver, waxing and laser hair removal. Each of these methods has their pros and cons.

Shaving the bikini line with a razor blade can be cheap, quick and generally painless. However, the effects are usually short term, meaning you would have to shave once every day or every second day. This depends on the individual’s hair growth rate. Some of the downfalls in regards to shaving your bikini line with a regular razor blade can include; ingrown hairs, nicks and razor burns.

Waxing the bikini line is one of the more popular methods. The reason for this is because the unwanted hair stays away for weeks instead of days and you are less prone to ingrown hairs. One other important factor is that waxing is by far less expensive than laser hair removal. The downside using waxing as a method of bikini hair removal is that it can be quite a painful experience.

Laser hair removal is by far the best method if you are looking for a painless and semi permanent to permanent removal of unwanted hair along your bikini line. If done correctly, unwanted hair can stay way for as long as 6 months to a year. In some cases it never grows back again. Unfortunately this type of treatment can be very expensive. An average session of laser treatment can cost around $300 - $500. In addition to this you would generally need to go for multiple sessions in order for the treatment to be successful.

So as you can see, it really depends on what you are willing to put up with when it comes to bikini hair removal. If your pocket is deep, laser hair removal is probably the best way to go. However, if you don’t mind the pain but mind the money, waxing would be the next best method. If all else fails, there is always the trustee old razor.

Skin around the pubic area is very sensitive and bikini line hair removal can be a quick route to all sorts of skin problems if it's not done properly. Ingrown hairs, razor bumps, blood spots and red and sore skin are just some of them. Here's a list of what you shouldn't do if you want not only a hairless bikini line but a smooth one too. Shaving doesn’t use a throwaway, switchblade or man's razor for a pubic hair shave. Use a good quality female safety razor. Make sure the blade is sharp. Using a blunt blade to shave pubic hair will make skin irritations even more likely.

Don't shave pubic hair too close to the skin, or shave the same area more than twice. You'll increase your risk of getting ingrown hairs and skin problems if you do. Don't shave bare skin during a pubic hair shave. You'll get razor burns. And don't use a shaving cream for men or soap as a lubricant. Use a gel or cream for bikini line hair removal. Apply liberally.

Don't shave inflamed or bleeding skin. You'll make matters much worse and lastly don't shave while you're cold. The razor or shaver will catch your goose bumps.

Waxing doesn’t get a bikini wax just before heading for the beach. You're skin will be red and sore for at least 24 hours after a bikini wax.

If you you've never had your bikini wax before, don't try to do it yourself and never attempt a Brazilian wax yourself. Go to a professional salon or spa.

Depilatory creams doesn’t use depilatory creams on the pubic area other than on the bikini line. They'll burn your skin. Creams meant for the face should never be used on the bikini line.

If you avoid all of these common mistakes, your experiences of bikini line hair removal should be much better and you'll be able to head for the beach with confidence.

Shaving pubic areas with an electric razor:

Electric shavers for women have come a long way since they were first introduced after the war. Many will shave pubic hair quickly and, more importantly, safely, as nicks and cuts are impossible.

All shavers shave pubic hair that is soft best. Take a hot shower of bath before shaving pubic areas to soften hair. A lot of bacteria lives in the bikini area, and this will help prevent them getting into the hair follicles after you’ve shaved. Some electric shavers are good for wet shaving and if yours is, you may even be able to shave in the shower. Obviously, only battery-operated shavers should be used in the shower and always read the product manual to make sure yours is suitable for shower use. Some women say that shaving pubic areas wet with an electric shaver gives them a closer shave.

If your shaver can’t be used wet, make sure you dry the pubic hair and skin thoroughly before beginning to shave pubic hair. Almost all electric shavers work best without shaving cream so don’t use it unless the instructions tell you to. The shaving part couldn’t be easier. A gentle back and forth motions is usually recommended but try not to go over the same skin too much, as this will increase skin irritations. When women first start shaving pubic areas, red bumps and other skin irritations are common but these should diminish as your skin gets used to being shaved and it’s worth persevering.

Another downside of shaving pubic areas is itching between shaves. As you are cutting the hairs at skin level, this could begin within 24 hours or as soon as the now-sharp hairs start to appear. If your skin is up to it, shaving daily should prevent this, but never shave bumpy or red and inflamed skin. You could get end up with an infection.

Term Eyebrow Threading is known as shaping up of a person’s eyebrows. Most common methods of shaping or thinning eyebrows are the use of hot wax or tweezers. However, eyebrow threading is said to outcome impressive results, not matched by any other method of hair removal.

Eyebrow threading uses thread which is twisted around the hairs of the eyebrows. The thread is being pulled sharply, and it results every hair attached to it removed. The result is a very straight, clean and fine eyebrow line. The hairs that are removed are done follicle that the clean-looking results can last up to a few weeks.

An Ancient Tradition:

This method is for removing unwanted hair from the eyebrow area, and also making the shape of the eyebrow lines sharp and clean that has been around for years. It originated from India and has also has became popular in the many other countries for many years. It is a technique that is not yet well-known in the United States, but it is growing in popularity because of the results produce by this technique.

Threading is the Best Method:

Many beauticians agreed that eyebrow threading is better for a person’s skin then using hot wax to remove unwanted facial hair. The skin near the eyebrow region is very sensitive, and using wax there can lead to break outs, skin irritation, or even burned skin. Also, hot wax may cause the skin to peel or become wrinkled. This is why this method of removing unwanted brow hair doesn’t involve the application of any sort of heated substance or chemical is seen as beneficial.

Using tweezers on eyebrow hair is basically the same as threading the hair, but a pair of tweezers is only able to capture one or two hairs at a time. Also, when using a tweezers, there is no guarantee that the hair will be pulled out by its follicle. Tweezing eyebrow hair can be a time-consuming process, and cannot produce an even eyebrow line the way threading can.

Razor is not recommended to use for removing unwanted eyebrow hair. Razors do not remove hairs from their follicles, and they are often difficult to control. An eyebrow shaped with a razor will most likely look strange and full of stubble.

A New Beauty Phenomenon:

Eyebrow threading is not the most common way to get rid of unwanted eyebrow hair in the US, but it is quickly becoming the desired method by many, because it has not yet become commonplace in most US cities. The service is not available in all salons. However, as people are discovering that this is a proven, effective, cost-effective and quick way to shape and thin their eyebrows, threading is sure to become a more common practice across North America.

Advantages and Disadvantages of Eyebrow Threading:

One of the best aspects of threading, when compared to waxing or plucking, is that it is an inexpensive service to receive at a salon. It’s also a quick process and it produces superior hair removal results. Many also say that it is the least painful way to get rid of unwanted eyebrow hair.

The most negative point associated with threading are that it is not always easy to find an experienced person to perform the service. It’s usually possible to find salons that offer threading in most large, metropolitan cities. However, in small cities, it may be next to impossible to find a threading technician.

how to apply clip in extensions

How to Apply Clip in Hair Weave Extensions:

Practice opening and closing the clip: With the clip side of the piece facing you, put both thumbs on each side of the clip and the index fingers at the front side of the piece. Snap the clip open by applying pressure toward yourself with the index fingers. Similarly, close the clip by applying pressure away from yourself with the thumbs.

Practice snapping on hair: Using one of the 1 1/2" side pieces, practice attaching and removing the extension piece.

Separating the hair: Using a tail comb or your index fingers, practice parting the hair where you wish to attach the first extension.

Start the first part: Raquel Welch clip-in extensions should be attached from the bottom up. Starting at the lowest point on the hairline, and using a tail comb or your index fingers, creates a part where you wish to section off the hair.

Finishing the first part: Move the tail comb or your index fingers under the hair and along the scalp until the hair is separated from the right to the left hairline.

Clip up the hair above the part: Lift up all the hair above the part and clip it out of the way.

Prepare the first weft: Select one of the wider "back" wefts (if working with a complete kit, us the 6" width weft) and snap open all the clips.

Placement of the first weft: The clips should be placed on your own hair below the part so that the top of the weft is even with the part.

Placement of the first clip: The middle clip should be place first by locating at the middle of the nape. Place the clip on your hair just below the part. Moving the clip downward, catch your hair in the clip and snap it shut.

Placement of the second clip: The right clip is next. Holding the middle clip in place with your left hand, use your right hand to move the right edge of the weft as far as it will go around your head. As above, place the clip on your hair just below the part, and moving the clip downward, catch your hair in the clip and snap it shut.

Placement of the third clip: Finally, to attach the left clip, hold the middle clip in place with your right hand, and use your left hand to move the left edge of the weft as far as it will go around your head. As in the previous two steps, place the clip on your hair just below the part, and moving the clip downward, catch your hair in the clip and snap it shut.

Check for gaps: Now that all three clips are attached, run your fingers along the weft to make sure it lies flat against your head along the entire width. If there are any gaps, correct this by snapping the clip open, lifting it off hair and repositioning it so that the weft lies flat.

Preparing to place the second weft: This weft will be placed above the first weft. Release all the hair that was clipped out of the way in step six. Then, slightly above the weft that was just attached, make another part-as explained in steps 4 through 6.

Placing the second weft: Repeating steps 7-12, attach the next weft. To complete a style, follow steps 4-12 for each weft attached. (When working with a complete kit, start at the lowest point with the two 6" wefts, then attach the 7" weft, and finally the 8" weft.)

Placement of the side wefts: The four 1 1/2" wefts are meant to be attached to the sides of your head. Using two for each side, attach the first one just above the ear and the second one around the temple area.

Removing the wefts To remove a weft, snap open all the clips and gently lift up and away from your hair. Never try to remove a weft without first opening all the clips. Pulling or tugging to remove a weft can result in damage to your own hair.

The process of elimination is important that you do not want your hair from the natural course of the national.

Fusion Weaving:

Another possibility is a fusion weaving where your hair is natural in small sections; the extensions are attached with the help of natural hair hot wax.

In this method, there is no way in the weaving to hide when the hair seems more and more of the scalp and it seems completely.
