  • Hot Head - A Cordless Heated Hair Conditioning Cap

    New Year, New Trends! Hot Head is a unique microwavable deep conditioning heat cap created by Sandra Snell, a professional hair stylist. It offers an easy and stylish way to achieve the results of a salon quality conditioning treatment at home. It dramatically improves the results of your favorite deep conditioner, hair masque, oil, or other hair treatment. Without heat, your treatment can only do so much to improve the quality of your hair. Typically, the cuticle is closed, so the treatment is only able to work on the surface of the hair shaft. The results are minimal and superficial when compared to heat enhanced deep conditioning treatments. Hot Head enables the hair cuticle to open for an extended period, allowing the treatment to penetrate the hair shaft, nourishing it from the inside out.

  • How Often Do You Need A Haircut

    Ask someone when they know to get a haircut.  Here's some of the answers you'll hear."When I get split ends". "When I start getting knots that won't come out even with conditioner".

Fine or medium curls (8-12 weeks). Long layers (6-8 weeks). Many different layers (6 weeks). Bob or lob (6 weeks). Fine hair that's wavy or straight (4-6 weeks). Short hair (4 weeks).

  • How To Buy A Scissor

    How do you know what to buy? The same way you would buy any expensive item like a car or electronic devices. You would go by past performance, reviews, reputation, test drive it, friends opinions, etc. Would you buy a new car based on specs?  The specs of the car are great, but the car runs and rides horrible. It's no different with scissors. Anybody looking for specs on scissors to determine the best scissor, is really wasting their time!
