It is important we care for our clients: Especially when you consider some of the comments we uncovered from some clients in our research

I have lost faith in hairdressers; they damaged my hair beyond repair when all I asked for was a perm”,

Hairdressers did not consider my feelings when they started slapping chemical relaxers into my hair.

I lost all my hair in addition to losing my confidence; now all I do is wear wigs!” “African hair braiders are the worst.  They are ignorant, have bad manners & attitude and are also uneducated. They are anti-virgin Afro kinky hair type as they insist you relax your hair before they can braid it. Their customer service is non-existent.”

”Hair braiders do not listen, they braid your hair too tight and this causes headache – sometimes the scalp bleeds, they do not give you new ideas, suggestions or information.” Etc etc

For these reasons and more, we have structured our training to address all these issues and many more. We aim to train you to be ahead of your clients.

Now I have my skills which has changed my life” Thandi – South AfricanI was tired of traveling the world and decided to settle back home with a course that will pay me as well as release my creativity.  World of Braiding gave me that chance and now I am settled in my business at home.” Alena – SlovakiaI am a lawyer by profession but when the economic recession came in and my business was changing, I knew it was time to start a new career that will give me a skill.  World of Braiding helped me to make my vision clear and now I run my own salon.  ” Vicky – Hemel Hemstead (Salon Owner) ” I am an accountant by profession but I work with a private firm.  I noticed the economic changes and knew it was time to tap into the skill in my hands to add to what I know.  Now I have started working in a salon and I do this part time.  World of Braiding showed me the skill in my hands.” Loveness – Slough”I come from Salt Lake City in Utah in the USA and I came to England to learn detailed Braiding as it was the best full course I could find.  I took up the International Braiding Course and on completion; all aspects of the training exceeded my expectations.  I feel so well equipped and confident to take my skill to the next level.

I am very happy as I have achieved the skill I wanted to start my business.  The rest is now left to me” Laurayn  - Ilford – London

”I am a mother with 3 young girls.  It was getting quite difficult to take them to the salon every week to get their hair ready for school. My children hated going to the salon as well because they could not run around and had issues with the braider who always pulled their hair too tight and combed it too rough.  I had to gain experience in hair braiding to save myself this problem.  I took up the 3 days Introduction to Braiding workshop.  Now I braid my children’s hair, save myself money, have peace of mind as my children are at home and my husband is very happy with the savings we have made from spending on 3 children’s hair every week.” Sharon  - Devon
After completing Introduction to Braiding and a course in Extensions everything changed for me.  With the skill in my hands, I changed my small salon into a big shop in Portsmouth.  See the picture of my shop above. I combine skill and sale of hair extensions & products. This has changed my life as I am a different person and a lot better than I ever dreamed. I cannot begin to quote my weekly earnings.Rita.  PortsmouthTaking a braiding training is one of the best decisions and investments I made.  Since completing my training, now I run my own International business  shuttling between England and Barbados. I have my own team of mobile beauticians and making money is no longer my problem.Shannelle Gill – Ellen Extensions Hair & Beauty

HAIR BRAIDING MAINTAINANCE and RULES

 
 

Glamorously braided hair

RULES OF BRAIDING

DO’S

  • Always shampoo and condition hair before putting in a braid. Never put braids on dirty hair.  It causes itch and constant scratching.
  • Remember to always have your hair in good condition to wear braids as hair braiding is about encouraging and nurturing healthy hair. If you have any particular hair condition – ring worm, head lice, alopecia, dry hair etc.  These conditions need attention, discuss with your braider as they may be able to help point you in the right direction.
  • If you wear chemically processed / relaxed hair, ensure your hair is healthy before you put on braided extensions.  This is because if your hair is damaged, braids will not restore your hair condition.  The added stress of braids will cause you further damage. Remember that if you go ahead and braid an already stressed hair condition, braiding is not the cause of your problem.  
  • If the hair is natural /virgin hair without chemical processing do the following to get started:

Afro hair

  1. add moisturising lotion – some good names include – Pink oil moisturiser, Motions moisturisers, Organic Root Stimulator moisturiser, Kids organics moisturiser etc
  2. Use hand dryers with a comb pick attachment to detangle the hair.
  3. Allow to comb easily before braiding – Tip: comb from the ends to the roots so as not to cause tangling or pain on your client.
  4. When braiding is complete, apply braid spray on hair to give it shine and moisturise the scalp some good brand names – Isoplus natural range, African Pride, Better Braids, Sulphur 8, Organic Root Stimulator etc.

European hair,

a        Dampen the hair as it is very slippery and fragile by adding water from a water spray to make it ready for braiding.

b       Do not apply grease or oil as it becomes slippery.       

  • When braiding unless otherwise necessary (due to design and style) – try and match hair extensions textures to the client’s natural hair as this gives a more natural look.

DON’TS 

  • Do not braid a freshly relaxed hair until after 2 weeks of the chemical application as this result in damage or excessive stress to the hair leading to hair loss.
  • While braiding the hair, avoid pulling the hairs at the hairline as they tend to cause damage resulting to traction alopecia i.e hair loss due to stress and tightness.
  • After a hair braid, where possible, do not over expose hair to hard water because it strips hair of its natural oil, and takes away the gloss and shine from the braid.  When there is need to cleanse the scalp of dirt and smell where applicable, use natural cleansers such as Witch hazel, tea tree oil, rubbing alcohol, surgical spirits etc.
  • Other products to cleanse scalp include dry shampoos – some good brand names include – Organic Root Stimulator, Sta-Sof-Fro, Better Braids, Isoplus etc.  After application of these products, use braid sheens, anti-itch oils, leave-in conditioners and hair fresheners to banish itch and bad smell that may occur.
  • As a rule of thumb, do not leave a braid for longer than 3 months. When you do, the hair starts to naturally lock itself and the products start to build-up leading to tight knots at the base of the braids.  This leads to hair loss & damage if the right process and products are not used when taking out the braids.  

BRAID MAINTENANCE

  • On the average, after about 6 weeks the braid should be re-touched at the hairline.  A term used in braiding which means the braids at the hair line should be taken out and re-braided to give a fresher new look.
  • Use braid and scalp conditioners on your scalp on as-needed basis to combat dry scalp and avoid flaky scalp.
  • It is important to cover your hair with a silk or satin scarf when going to sleep.  This keeps your hair smooth, neat and avoids loss of natural oils. If you have problem tying your hair then get a satin or silk pillow case as they do not absorb the moisture needed in your hair.
  • Put your hair up for your work out and activities.
  • To maintain healthy hair, add leave-in conditioners such as Infuisum 23-diluted with a little water and add your braid sheen to it.  Spray this on your braids on as-needed basis.
  • When taking a shower, keep the hair covered with a silk or satin scarf to control the hair and then put a shower cap to avoid getting your hair wet.
  • To combat frizz, mist the hair until slightly damp.  In the palm of your hands add a little gel and smooth it over the braids in the direction they were braided.  Cover with a silk or satin scarf until dry.
  • For individual braids frizz, oil the scalp, moisturise with a no-rinse conditioner, and mist lightly with water.  Cover with a silk or satin scarf until dry. Remove scarf and all are neat.
  • For Cornrows frizz, mist your hair with water until it is slightly damp, then take a small amount of gel and smooth it over the cornrows. Tie the hair down until it is completely dry.
  • For hot weather in summer, try hairstyles that are short and has no fuss.  They are cooler to maintain in the heat.
  • Cornrows are funky and easy to wear.  They are dramatic, creative and stylish.  To achieve a great style, create your own unique cornrow by adding all the other styles you find around with a design you have created and this makes it special to you.
  • If the hair on your hair line is too small to be picked up when braiding, avoid breakage and apply a light gel hair cream to get a smooth baby hair look – good brand names include – Lets Jam (Soft Sheen Carson), Elasta QP Glaze etc. 

WHEN REMOVING BRAIDS

  • When removing braids, be gentle. Avoid being in a hurry.  Set out a time and date to take your braids out in comfort or better still get the services of a professional braider.
  • Spray the braids with good products that are aimed at helping to take out braids – some good names are – Un-braid by Better Braids, Ease out by African Pride, Unlocker by Isoplus etc.  These products melt the knots that are formed at the end of each plaits due to product build up and dust from the atmosphere.
  • Gather all the braids up in a ponytail.  Take your braids down one by one and undo them. This will make removing your braids easier and less frustrating as you can gauge your progress.
  • After taking out the braids, gently comb through with a wide-tooth comb.  DO NOT WASH /SHAMPOO YOUR HAIR UNTIL YOU HAVE TAKEN AWAY ALL THE KNOTS IN YOUR HAIR.  This is important as the knots lead to hair damage.
