Is faux locs tight?

In most cases yes, braids are tension and we do not recommend this style to first time clients or persons who have a sensitive scalp.

How do I maintain my braids?

  • To sleep wrap hair in bun and cover with a silk wrap. If braids are too heavy leave braids down and use a silk cap.
  • Use rubber bands to tie hair up or back. It reduces tension on the hairline.
  • Moisten scalp and use hair boosters on the hairline.
  • When washing hair focus on the roots minimize wetting hair. We do not recommend applying heat on braids to dry, use heat on scalp, towel and air dry. Always try to wash hair early in the morning so it is completely dry by night.
  • When unloosing your hair detangle each plait individually and do not wet it until all hair is fully detangled. Use little oil at the roots to help loosen build up.

Do you do house calls?

Yes, we do for some areas and some clients, additional $200 for house calls.  The charge for house calls may increase depending on the area or requirements. House calls must be made in advance and paid in full as stylists have to clear their schedule to accommodate house calls.

Do you have workshops?

Yes please see the training tab.

Can I only purchase goods via paypal?

No, for domestic purchases we have alternative methods. Please send an email to hairbraidit@gmail.com entitled “Payment Options” and the details of your order.
