HOW EXTENSIONS CAN DAMAGE YOUR HAIR

HOW EXTENSIONS CAN DAMAGE YOUR HAIR

So we have relocated World of Braiding & Extensions to the heart of Essex (Southend On Sea)  – if you live in England you will be familiar with TOWIE –(The Only Way Is Essex) – a programme on Television where Essex girls show

TOWIE GIRL

TOWIE GIRL

their love for everything extensions – hair, nails, tanning, night life etc.

The only way is essex

The only way is essex

This is where our story today starts.  A client walks in the shop and is desperate for help. I was late getting to the shop as my day was going to be a video production day and not for clients.  But this is one of the perks of being on the high street where clients walk in without appointments. So I get a phone call to desperately come in as someone needed help.

I walk in to the shop and saw her sitting looking glum and very sad.  I wondered what was wrong but as is customary of our service, I ask her if she was okay and she replied back that she was not okay.

I settled down and came to her to hear what the problem was.

Her story.  She had got her hair into glue gun extensions the previous day but had not slept throughout the night.  This is because the stylist who claimed she was an expert at extensions had put the extensions in completely wrong.  The extensions glue had been applied directly on her scalp and it was so tight that she had headaches all night with her scalp gone sore and constantly throbbing.  Details of the story.  She had got to this shop at 9.00am and after hours of wait, arguments and eventual agreement,  finally got attended to in a process that did not feel right. She was expected to pay for all the materials needed for the hair extensions process exclusive of the fee she was going to pay for the service. She had to wait in the shop while the materials were bought.  In the end the process was completed at about 11.00pm.   Her head was sore.

Bad glue gun hair extensions

Bad glue gun hair extensions

She woke up the next day in agony and immediately ran back to the salon with the intention to take it out but it was closed and she had no idea when it was going to be opened.  She was now desperate and started going from salon to salon asking who could take out the extensions.  No salon could help her as all they tried did not take out the extensions but her hair.  Her head had gone red and sore as the glue stuck to her scalp firmly.  To cut a long story short, we were able to take out the bad hair day extensions using only the best glue removers in the industry without causing her any pain or hair loss.

This is a familiar story we have seen with our 3 months experience in Essex.  Young Caucasian girls getting different types of extensions done by untrained inexperienced stylist.  Among lots of the cases we have had to attend to, another case which was quite pathetic was a situation where a stylist had applied bonding glue on a client’s head all the way to the hairline which was very visible to an onlooker.  When it goes wrong they desperately come seeking help.  When you offer professional service, they claim it is expensive and they run off to cheaper salons.  The result is damaged hair and these girls will go bald before they are 30 years old.  We are happy to help but we will be happier to attend to these clients without having to mop after other people’s mess.

Badly done glue gun extensions

Badly done glue gun extensions

Some other known cases include – Kim Kardashian, Victoria Beckham, Britney Spears, Coleen Rooney, Naomi Campbell etc.  Hair extensions when not done professionally or with care can seriously lead to traction alopecia and alopecia areata.

What is Hair Extensions:   Hair extensions are the addition of virgin, artificial fibers or anything that is not your own hair into your hair.  This way of achieving long hair has become very popular recently among all races. In the past extensions was only popular with Black girls but now this is no longer the case.

Lots of people still struggle to understand hair extensions.

What are the different ways of adding Hair Extensions:  There are different ways of adding hair extensions.  They range from:

Braiding with extensions – single plaits with extensions, cornrows with extensions, twist with extensions etc.

Weaves extensions – full head sew-in extensions, track sew-in extensions, interlock sew-in weave etc.

Weft Bonding extensions – cap weave with weft bonding, line bonding on tracks etc

Fusions strand-by-strand extensions – glue gun fusions extensions, micro beads /ring/micro loop fusion extensions, pre-bonded heat gun fusion extensions, cold fusions etc

Other types are known as Units –  regular wigs, Clip-ins, Velcro,lace front wigs, frontals etc

What makes a difference between types of hair extensions will depend on how healthy they are applied, how natural and realistic they look when compared to the natural hair, how comfortable the hair extensions feels on the client’s natural hair, how durable they last in-between salon visits, how much they cost to get the service done, the products used to achieve the result, how informed; experienced and educated your stylist is etc.

Why do we need hair extensions: 

Length – We need hair extensions for instant length of hair (our hair grows up to 13cm per year – which depends on a healthy lifestyle, the healthy food we eat, the quality products we use, genetics, age, health etc.).

Volume -We need extensions to give our hair volume

Change of Colour/Highlights, easy styling of our hair, for beauty, durability, for versatile look especially for people with celebrity lifestyle etc.

What causes hair extensions damage: 

Don’ts of Hair Extensions:

  • Don’t apply the wrong type of extensions on your hair without detailed consultation with your stylist.

  • Don’t become addicted to wearing extensions and not take a break occasionally to rest your hair – this is because the hair gets stressed from constant abuse – pulling and tugging.

  • You will have damage if you do not treat your natural hair with care – using good quality products – shampoos and conditioners, applying the right treatments – deep condition & treatment, split end trims and cuts etc.

  • You will have damage if you do not use professional service to take out your hair extensions etc.

Do’s of hair extensions:

  • Work with professional stylist who are well trained and have the love of your hair at heart.

  • Have a detailed consultation with your stylist and understand what type of extensions will suit your natural hair without causing you damage.

  • Learn to take advice – I deal with clients who simply do not listen to advice as they mentally take on an idea of what they should look like.

  • Treat your hair extensions with care as if it was your own hair as well as treat your own hair with care.

  • Do not wear your hair extensions for too long as it affects the health of your hair.

  • Use professional service to take out your hair extensions.

  • Give your hair a rest from extensions occasionally and give it good treatment when not in extensions.

  • If your hair is damaged, do not use hair extensions.  Wait for your hair to get back to good health before applying hair extensions.

World of Braiding offers healthy hair extensions techniques as our client’s hair health is our passion and concern.  We consult with all clients before taking on a service of hair extensions.  We care for your hair and ensure there are no damages. We also train you with the best ways to apply all the different hair extensions techniques.

BLUEPRINT TO A MORE SUCCESSFUL YOU

BLUEPRINT TO A MORE SUCCESSFUL YOU

11 NECESSARY INGREDIENTS TO A SUCCESSFUL LIFE

Do you sometimes wake up and feel there is something missing in your life? Then there is! You are not yet fulfilled and that part of you missing is trying to remind you to do something about realising the missing part.  Welcome to join the billions of people (world population now7billion) who simply walk the surface of the earth without a purpose.  Most of us simply exist; we do not design our lives.  There is some good news in our sudden realisation.  We unlike the other billions at least have realised there is something missing.  This shows there is hope for us as we have gone one step ahead of others who may never know there is a part of them missing. Realisation is one of the first steps to do something about our situation.

This is where I found myself in the past months.  Going through series of soul searching, while attending to a variety of women in my line of business.  I have questioned and wondered why things happen in particular ways with some of us and not with others.  I have taken it upon myself to search for answers and this has been a long journey of searching and researching.  I have taken on as much as I can to contribute to as many lives as I can.  Some of the ideas I found may be useful to someone out there as when I found them, I realised I could not just keep them to myself alone but to share to as many people that are willing to use it. These are my personal compilation of discovery from a variety of trials and errors, working with clients, NLP books, Personal Development CDs, Videos, mental development books etc.

 

11 NECESSARY INGREDIENTS TO A SUCCESSFUL LIFE

  1. DEVELOP YOUR PERSONAL BRAND /IDENTITY, CONTROL AND PROTECT IT.

Know who you are and what makes you a person.  You are unique and there can never be another you.  Take time to find out who this person called YOU is.  What makes you feel good, content, happy, excited and sad?  What do you bring on the table in every relationship? What would you like to do? Write down all your dreams, wishes, hopes etc. Once you discover who you are, start by taking control of your brand and protect it.  This is important as when you lose control, someone else will take control. Whatever you do, avoid handing over control of your life to someone else.  It leads to nothing but heartache and pains.  When we forget who we are, we start getting a feeling of emptiness, and a part of us missing.

2. SEARCH AND RESEARCH WHAT YOU WANT.

Now you know who you are and what you want.  Start by searching for information and knowledge.  It is believed that every child is born with a blank slate of mind (Tabula rasa). According to Wikipedia, Tabula rasa is the epistemological theory that individuals are born without built-in mental content and that their knowledge comes from experience and perception. If we are to agree with this, then we have to work on making ourselves a better person. How can we become good at what we want? How would we gain knowledge in our chosen field? It is the process of searches and re-searches that will guide us to know what we want.  Do not allow any one person to feed you with loads of hocus pocus.  You have to search from a variety of sources and never stop seeking knowledge. The Bible has it very clearly – seek and you shall find.

3. GET TRAINING, EDUCATION, INFORMATION.

You have found out a lot of things from your research.  Do something about it.  Information is the key to knowledge.  Take up training and education to get yourself ready and to be good in what you want.  “It is easy when you know how”. If you don’t train, you will never know how it is done and you will probably struggle for years to find a solution to a problem that could have taken a day or a few weeks because you refused to take up training. Your training /education is your investment into your dreams.  Other ways of getting information is to read, read, read.  Read up on other people’s experiences, successes, failures etc.  There are books on every experience in life.  Develop a habit of reading to prepare your mind for success.  While food nourishes the body, books nourish the mind with ideas.  Ideas are what we want in order to grow.  Ideas are what differentiate us from animals.  Ideas are what keep us thinking and we are what we think.  Give your mind the wrong idea and you turn out with wrong reality.

4. PRACTICE THE KNOWLEDGE AND TRAINING YOU HAVE GAINED.

Practice the skills, knowledge and information you have gained from your training. Apply it constantly. Repeat it over and over again.  It will feel awkward at first.  This is normal.  Remember every expert was once a beginner.  This is your route to gaining experience and no one sells experience.  You have to practice, repeat, fail and continue to repeat to become perfect. Imperfect practice brings perfection.  Repetition is the mother of perfection.  Remember for every new role you take on in life, you are a baby in that role.  You must remember your baby steps in crawling, standing and falling to become an adult.  This applies to everything.  There will be challenges, obstacles, difficulties, hurdles etc.  Your willingness and determination to carry on is what will help you achieve success.  Never give up – follow your dreams wherever it is or with whatever it takes.  Remember, the only way to fail in life is to give up.

5. TAKE CARE OF YOUR HEALTH.

Watch what goes into your body as food.  In order for us to achieve our dreams, we have to be physically and mentally healthy.  We are responsible for what goes into our body and mind.  As mentioned earlier, take absolute control of what you expose yourself to.  In order for our life to progress forward, we have to be in good health and we cannot be in good health if we are not watching our food intake, exercise, relaxation etc.  Only a healthy body, mind and soul can think, plan and act to achieve success.

6. MAKE PLANS / GOALS – IMMEDIATE AND LONG TERM.

Now you have perfected your dreams, skills, education etc.  Write down clear goals of what you want to achieve in an order of preference.  Be very clear and specific.  Break them down into immediate goals and long term goals.  A clearly written planned out goals leads to achievement.  Take lessons from whenever you plan something and how you end up achieving it – a wedding, a birthday party, a naming ceremony etc.  The same way you organised and planned out how you were going to achieve those plans should also be the same way you write out your LIFE PLANS.  Work with yourself and write this out clearly.  It takes away the guesswork from life. This is where life then throws things at us and we start becoming frustrated and feeling lost. This is where experts teach us to DESIGN OUR LIVES instead of LEAVING IT TO CHANCE.

7. TAKE MASSIVE ACTION TOWARDS ACHIEVING YOUR GOALS.

This is one of our biggest roles in life.  This is one of the biggest laws of nature.  You shall only reap what you sew. Turn this saying around and look at your life again.  Whatever you are today is a direct result of what you have sewn.  If you want to reap more, you sew more.  Lots of us today want to reap where we did not sew.  We also want overnight success where we will do nothing and get amazing results.  There is a difference between cheating to achieve overnight riches and growing sustainable wealth. Overnight riches achieved through cheating disappear within a short time and leads to frustration and depression while sustainable wealth grown from continuous sewing of knowledge, skills and ideas remains and prospers.  Examples such as Oprah Winfrey, Bill Gates, Richard Branson etc comes to mind.

8. BE PREPARED TO ENCOUNTER CHALLENGES AND OBSTACLES.

Obstacles and challenges are a necessary part of life.  These are the things that prepare you for a more difficult life ahead.  These challenges test your resolve, resilience, capability, strength etc for a more fulfilling life.  There are lots of saying that demonstrate this “no pain, no gain”; “to whom much is given, much is expected”; “when the going gets tough, only the tough gets going” etc. Life is definitely not meant to be trouble-free.  Successful people are people who have learnt to overcome obstacles.  Lots of people think successful people are a different breed who never encounters problems.  This is wrong and the sooner we learn that we all have our fair share of issues and obstacles to deal with, the sooner we will stay strong and face our problems head-on. For every opportunity we meet, there will be countless obstacles to overcome in order to succeed.  Success is therefore our ability to overcome obstacles.

9. STAY FOCUSED.

No matter what situation you find yourself in, never lose sight of your goal.  This is another area where lots of us are getting confused.  We allow our present situation to distract us from the major goals we have set for ourselves.  Remember – what you think about, you bring about.  Our mind is an amazing machine and will only work on the instructions we give.  If you constantly worry about your personal circumstance, instead of looking at ways to move forward, your situation remains the same if not worse.  Things will only happen when you snap out of what is going on and think way ahead of yourself – “those who think ahead stay ahead”.  Let go of what is going on and focus on what you want to achieve and how to achieve it.  This is what the actions you take will bring about. And this is what will bring you out of your present circumstance.

10. MAKE GOOD USE OF YOUR TIME.

Time is one of the most precious gifts we have from nature.  We do not pay for it and we all have the same amount of hours each day.  My question is, how do successful people achieve so much with the same 24 hours and unsuccessful people remember to claim they have not got enough time to do what they have set out to do.  Check your day, get a diary, write out what you want to achieve in a day and follow your plans religiously.  Do this for 90 days and check your results.  You will find that you can create time.  Value your time and use it positively. Avoid wasting your time on things that will not bring any positive results in your life. Once time is lost, it can never be retrieved.  We each have an allocated time to be on this earth.  We have no control over this part of our life.  Make the best of each day.

11. DEVELOP A GOOD MENTAL ATTITUDE.

The world responds to you.  We need people to perform our daily chores.  What we give out is what we get back.  Make life interesting.  Introduce what I call the PEEL philosophy.  (PASSION, ENERGY, EXCITEMENT, LOVE).  Lots of people who succeed attract people to themselves.  How do you fit into a crowd?  Are you known as the boring, chip on shoulders, negative aura personality that everyone wants to avoid or the bubbly, full of life, exciting person who is going to brighten a person’s day no matter what they started their day with.  Bring love, passion, excitement and energy into your day and watch people flock to you for help.  Be prepared to help people you meet on your way at all time.  Ask yourself how you can contribute positively to your community.  The more you contribute to making other people’s lives better, the more the universe will pay you back in the form of reward.

 

Help make life exciting and a good experience for the next person you meet.  Make your natural gifting edify others you meet in your life and you will discover you would have achieved your life’s purpose and no longer feel the vacuum in your life.

My personal purpose is to share my knowledge with you in order to bring you success.
