Do you braid tight?

For most, no. However if you are getting the flawless illusion crochet service, the install may feel tighter AFTER  the foundation is braided. If you have any scalp irritations, alopecia or are extremely tender headed, please send us a message to consult.

I love your crochet, but does it have to be so big?

We use a special technique created mainly for its versatility. With versatility comes more hair to cover, which means more hair will also be used. If you’d like to get something the isn’t so big, please consider allowing us to do a one or two part install to reduce the volume.

 

How is your crochet different than others?

Most stylist use the traditional technique with the small knots that sit right on top of the braid. The technique we use, created sort of a loop that sits underneath the braid. This underloop also creates an illusion that the hair is growing out of your scalp. This technique is done throughout the whole head unless directed not to.

 

Hair Maintenance:

Can I wash my hair while it is in crochet braids?

This answer would be dependent on the style/curl you select. Most curls you are able to wash GENTLY. For many clients, cleansing the scalp and oiling the scalp works fine during the time you’ll have the style in. During your appointment we go through all maintenance and tips to keep your style as long as possible.

How do I maintain my Flawless illusion crochet braids?

For most styles, because this will be done with synthetic hair, it is first important to note that constantly separating synthetic hair will be your best bet. Synthetic hair usually mattes and tangles when it is unbothered, also causing it to age faster. So when you are taking care of the hair you’ll need to separate the curls and twist is down in 4 sections.

Can I use any products on my hair?

Yes the first is oil! Please give your scalp some good ole TLC during your protective style by oiling your scalp about 3-4 days a week. To rejuvenate the hair, you’ll be fine using the following:

•Non Alcoholic Mousse.

•Light leave in conditioner mixed with water.

*Remember when putting products on synthetic hair: Less is more

 

How do I take down my crochet?

1. Cut out all Synthetic hair as close as you can to your cornrows without cutting your own hair

2. Dampen your hair with water, then add a moisture rich deep conditioner to your braids

3 let sit for at least 30 minutes to help create slip between the synthetic hair and your cornrows

4. Look for the tail end of your braids, somewhere in the middle. The tails should be tucked underneath the other braids so it is best to use 2 mirrors to help guide you- pull up the ends and start unraveling the braid.

5. Be sure to unravel the braid close together to ensure you do not tangle you hair- TAKE YOUR TIME

6. As you unravel also use your fingers to help take out any buds that are left for the Synthetic hair. Unraveling should help the rest of the hair come out.

How to care for my Crochet Braids?

Finger Comb out tangles gently. Fingers won’t snag the hair like a comb with teeth does. Work from the ends of the hair to the roots as you gently comb the tangles out. In other words, work from the bottom up. * To make the combing process easier, wet the hair by spritzing it with a spray bottle filled with water or detangling spray. Then, comb the hair. * If the hair has a really tight curl pattern, use your fingers to comb the hair. Your fingers are much gentler, won’t snag the hair and won’t disrupt the curl pattern like a comb does.
