FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

DO YOU HAVE ANY OTHER TIMES THAN WHAT I SEE ONLINE? 

Unfortunately, because my clients book in advance, I usually do not have last minute openings. 

However, when I do, you must be on the waitlist to be notified!

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN;
FAUX LOCS, GODDESS LOCS, LISAHH LOCS, AND BOHO FAUX/GODDESS LOCS?

DO YOU OFFER SHOULDER LENGTH LOC OPTIONS OR STYLES FOR SHAVED SIDES?

 

I do offer shoulder length options for my boho faux and goddess locs, due to the install time requiring the same amount of time as bra strap length the price is the same. 

ARE LOCS/BRAIDS HEAVY OR TIGHT?

Faux locs & Boho Faux locs: temporary locs that resemble natural locs. Lisahh locs are thicker in width but are the same service. Boho means messy and non-conventional style.

Goddess locs & Boho Goddess locs: temporary locs that are the same as faux locs but have curls on the ends. 

Sometimes with a lot of manipulation faux/lisahh/goddess/boho locs can slip or unwrap. To help with this issue its important that the aftercare steps are followed. It is suggested at 4 weeks to have a perimeter touch up for services with synthetic hair.

 

DO ANY OF THE PROTECTIVE STYLES UNWRAP OR COME UNDONE?

What is the youngest age you provide services for?

The youngest age for any service is 13, the pricing will not be discounted due to the child being under 18. 
 
If you want to book an appointment for a client that is between 13-18 you can do so online.

HOW LONG DOES MY STYLE TAKE TO INSTALL AND HOW LONG WILL IT LAST?

 

All install timing is listed under the style you are booking but the duration of the service can vary by many factors (length & density of the clients real hair, add on's etc.) 
The longest time to keep in any protective style is 6-8 weeks with maintenance at 4-6 weeks. 
Natural styles will vary in length of time for wear. 

DO YOU PROVIDE HAIR OR OFFER SHAMPOO SERVICES?

All services provided include a shampoo, express condition and for protective styles synthetic hair is also included. 
If you wish to have the synthetic/human blend or human blend hair please add this on to your appointment.

My loc installs are sectioned to fit into a ponytail or bun without a lot of tension around your hairline & crown areas. My sections are for protective style services are to promote length retention to aid in healthy hair.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN FLEXI RODS & PERM RODS?

Flexi rods give a larger curl and are a bit more of a loose curl diameter. Perm rod curls are a tighter curl diameter that lasts a bit longer because of the tighter curl.

CAN I SHAMPOO MY HAIR WITH THIS PROTECTIVE STYLE IN?

Synthetic hair; No. If you have in locs you can come in for maintenance at your 4-6 week mark to have your scalp cleansed and newgrowth touched up.
Synthetic/Human Blend & Human Blend: Yes. You can use a MILD shampoo (OGX  Coconut milk shampoo recommended) focus on your scalp ONLY ) rinse, sit under hooded dryer for complete dry. Moisturize with leave-in moisturizer (Alikay naturals lemongrass leave-in spray) 
if you prefer to have me handle your scalp cleanse you can book a maintenance appointment. 
Tea Tree Oil can be used for itch relief 

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE IN TEXTURES BETWEEN FAUX/GODDESS LOCS, BOHO FAUX/GODDESS LOCS? 

Faux/Goddess locs are created with marley hair so they have a rough texture but soften over time.
These get flexible overtime but are slightly stiff the same day of your install. 
Boho Faux/Goddess Locs are created with a curly texture of hair and have more flexibility the same day of your install.
