Knowing Hair Properties

Your porosity, texture & elasticity can tell you more about your hair than your type.

Moisturize & Seal

You need to use water + waterbased products. Oil seals it does not moisturize.


Properly taking advantage of a good pre-poo can change your detangling life.

Finger Detangle

I know a lot of people hate this, but its a Godsend for length retention.


Proper shampooing reduces tangling from shrinkage and improves scalp health.

Deep Conditioning

Skipping deep conditioning can be detremental to your hair.

Conditioning/Detangling In the Shower

Diluting your conditioner makes it easier to coat every strand, use oils to add slip.

Protective Styles

Installing a protective style when your hair is dry/damaged will cause breakage.


Stretching is a powerful skill in length retention. It greatly reduces tangles!


Learn how to maintain your moisture throughout the week!


If you’re nervous about cutting your own hair, see a professional, but it is easy!


Twists can be used to wash, stretch, section, and moisturize your hair.

Rope Twists

Rope twists give definition and moisture retention that regular twists just can not compete with.

Hair Treatments

Identifying what your hair needs are and using resources to satisfy your needs!
