You can do what with [dread] locs? Damn!

In Cosmetics, Fashion, Natural Hair, The Damn Salon, Uncategorized on January 20, 2012 at 11:34 am

We received a comment/question on the FAQ’s blog from the Natural Girl’s Rock event January 14, 2011 in Atlanta, GA.  Loc Lady left the following comment:

Installing the twists on top of locs?! How in the world? I have been toying with the idea of taking down or growing out my nearly seven-year-old locs; in fact, I have “test removed” and reinstalled a few, so I know it can be done, but it is tedious and a damn Herculean effort! I do miss the volume and fullness of the fro – of hair that grows “out” rather than down. So, please explain how any of the twist options can fully cover locs that are mid-back length or longer?

Loc Lady, we are happy to answer  each of your questions with a yes ma’am!  The Damn Salon’s City Twists and Urban Twists can be applied with your locs in tact.  The technique used is highly specialized and was developed by Mushiya, founder of The Damn Salon,  several years ago.  City Locs and Urban Locs offer styling options and variety to women with locs.  Adding City Twists or Urban Twists on top of your locs will create texture, volume, unmatched sexiness!

 

The technique is also great for covering thinning areas and bald spots.  City Locs and Urban Locs last for up to 12 weeks and require no maintenance.    Adding City Twists to your head of locs  can, breathe new life into what can sometimes feel like a very confining styling decision.

Now through the end of February,  City Locs and Urban Locs are available for $199 and up.  Schedule your appointment TODAY  404.832.0801.

Stay Sexy!

FAQ’s from Natural Girls Rock Event “Natural is……The Freedom to be You!” Atlanta 1/14/12

In Fashion, Natural Hair, The Damn Salon, Uncategorized on January 16, 2012 at 5:25 pm

Hey Natural Beauties!   Davadivine, here to recap and answer a few of the many questions we received at the Natural Girl’s Rock “Natural is….The Freedom to be You!”  event January 14, 2012 in Atlanta, Ga.  At the event, Mushiya, Founder of the Damn Salon, hosted private hair health consultations .   There were many, many questions from new and veteran naturals alike.   A few questions and concerns kept coming up. We though we would address each of these questions in today’s blog.

Q.  Should I straighten my natural hair in order to trim it?

A.  No, never.  It is very possible and only logical that you trim your natural hair in it’s natural state.  Curly hair can be tricky to cut, but small sections, a steady hand, and a bit of patience goes a long way.   If a stylist tells you that she must straighten or blow out your natural hair in order to trim it….run.  A trained and experienced natural hair professional should be able to trim your natural hair without applying any heat what-so-ever.

Q.  I only straighten my natural hair for special occasions.  Since the last time, [I flat ironed, blow dried, pressed etc.], my curl pattern hasn’t returned.  What should I do?

A.  Sadly Darling,  the only thing you can do is cut off the hair that is heat damaged.  Contrary to popular belief  and fantasy, hair that is thermally damaged will not revert.  If you suspect that your hair is thermally damaged, you should start by deep conditioning it. Do this several times over the course of a week or so.  If  you still have limp unresponsive hair it will need to be trimmed before you can enjoy your natural curl pattern again.  

Q.  I have a 2,3,4,xbq curl pattern, what should my regimen be?

A.  Huh?   The Damn Salon neither acknowledges nor advocates curl typing.   Nonsense!  [In my West African Accent].    Every individual has a unique and beautiful curl pattern.  Most people have more than one.  Regardless of where you are told you fall on some ridiculous chart, the basic tenants of natural hair care are the same.  You must detangle, shampoo, deep condition, moisturize and protect your natural hair be it straight, curly, or kinky.  If you are typing your hair so you can run out and buy curls in a jar, good luck with that!  No product will give you curls that you don’t already have.  Remember, haute hair begins with healthy hair.  Love your hair and you will love the results.

Q. What kind of product can I use to make my natural hair lay down?

A.  Stop trying to make your natural hair lay down!  Natural hair does what it wants to do.  That’s the beauty of it.  If you want hair that lays down, get a perm. 

Q.  Should I comb out my [dread] locs?

A.  Uh, no.  While it is possible to comb out your locs, the process is extremely time consuming, expensive and potentially damaging to your natural hair.  It can take up to an hour or more to comb out each individual loc.  If you have ever used the interlocking method for tightening your locs, then double the time required for removal.  Should you decide to remove your locs, be prepared for a lot of breakage and shedding.  Your un-locked natural hair will likely be about 1/3 of the length of your locs.   There are many styling options for locs.  If you are bored with your locs, try roller setting, braiding or 2-strand twisting them for a bit of texture.  Oh, a little birdie told me that The Damn Salon is even able to install City Twists, Metro Twists, and Urban Twists on top of locs.  Removal should be a last resort…

We had an amazing time meeting Atlanta naturals and answering their questions.  If you have a question, please email it to dava@thedamnsalon.com. Until next time….

Stay Sexy!
