Getting the most out of your sessions
To maximize the benefit of your African hair braiding appointment in San Antonio, we suggest following these guidelines:
We usually believe that our clients already have a style in mind. It is even better if you can bring a picture or sketch along. At the same time, it is important to realize that you can never look exactly the same as in the picture. We would like you to keep the following points in mind:
- Different stylists braid differently and use different hair and techniques
- Your hair and head shape can be different from that of the person in the picture. For example, your hair can be thicker, longer, thinner, shorter, softer, coarser, or straighter.
Whatever your style preferences, we can make your hair braids look perfect on you.
You will be surprised how much of a difference this simple tip can make. Usually, you will have to request for our braider to wash your hair before braiding, weaving, or twisting. Having a clean and dry hair can make the process better for everyone.
African hair braiding in San Antonio can be done at most salons; if you have a preferred curl or kink for your twists, feel free to bring them along – otherwise, we have everything necessary for fulfilling all of your style requirements.
Once you have gotten your African hair braids, it is important to take proper care of them. Our hair stylists will suggest many tips to maintain your braids in great shape. Some of these tips include:
- Using a satin scarf to tie your hair when sleeping.
- Washing your hair with plain water and rub your scalp with your fingertips. Blow dry your hair by choosing the ‘cool’ setting.
- Using the right wax if you want to extend your hairstyle’s lifespan. The wax makes your hair matte and at times dry. This requires moisturizing your scalp.
