Hello Ms. Luscious, may I ask how much they charge or you pay for a press?
LOL- honestly I don’t remember. They are worth it so whatever she say I pay. Maybe it was $160 total- including tip?
This is also with the protein treatment.
Decided to flat iron my hair for Easter/vacation. My hair is growing so fast now. Almost BSL but had to trim. I will be back in a weave in June to encourage this growth. I will come back later with a pic. Can’t get it to upload
I have a hair update! I had my 6 month sewin done. The growth I had is tremendous. To be honest, I haven’t been taking care of my hair as well as I should due to crazy life situations. Here is my comparison pic from Oct 2018 to April 2019
Your hair looks very nice. So she cut it straight across last Fall and by mid Spring it had a V shape. Did you have it purposely cut to that shape? One minute I think I want to cut mine straight across because I like that hem line, but I feel like no matter what the V shape will come back anyway
Thanks- she cut it like that but it wasn’t mandatory/purposely done that way.
I just had another straight across cut so I guess we will see if the v- shape comes back.
Another update! 10 months of progress. I’m still working on my moisture levels under the weave but I’ve retained everything I’ve grown with no damage to my edges or scalp. My hair is much thicket and I can’t wait to do a silk press.
Wow, that looks like about 3 to 4 inches of growth! Congratulations on your wonderful progress! Your hair looks so full, thick and pretty.
Thank you for the update, it's gorgeous! What does Breon do to your hair.
P.S. I'm excited to see your silk press.
I had no idea Reniece was relatively close by (I’m near White Marsh), for some reason I thought she was in the Mid-West or way down south.
The results in this thread are gorgeous.
I get sew-ins every 2 months. I truly think its the technique that they use, not braiding too tight, no net, and caring for the hair.
Hi it's me again with another question. Do you reuse the same hair? If so, what hair do you reuse?
I bought haute hair DC relaxed bundles. I reused them about 3-4x. The only thing I couldn’t reuse was the closure because it shed too much, the second one didn’t shed barely at all so i think the first was faulty. The hair quality is great but the customer service leaves something to be desired.
Oh wow! What exactly was wrong with the customer service?
They told me a box would be sent out same day and it wasn’t sent for 3 more days. Also sometimes they don’t send a packing slip so you have no idea if what’s in the box is what you ordered. This last time they sent me 16in bundles when I ordered 14, that didn’t bother me too much though.
Blow out with Shannon- didn’t get it flat ironed but I think if I did it would be between lines 3 & 4 - getting closer to my goal.
Oh and Shannon’s fees (probably all their fees) are going up next year.
can’t get to upload will try later.
Did Breon move to another location?
How much are they charging now @movingforward13
loving these results!
You will have to ask- she just said prices were going up- my weave will be $55 more now. I am fine with that because I literally only see her 6 times a year but 2020 will probably be my last year wearing a weave since my hair is almost at the length I would feel completely comfortable with to wear out.
How much do you pay for a blow dry? As well as well as weaves?
@BSL_Journey - I haven’t asked about the blow dry price. The weaves were $180 to put in.
here is my picture. So with the flat iron I should be at like line 3- 4. I will straighten my hair in April/May and check the length then.
You grow girl!
Sorry @BSL_Journey I should have clarified- my blow out was in preparation to braid my hair down for a weave. I didn’t do the blow out by itself so I don’t know what the price is for that.
Last I know she was at Sola Salons. I haven’t been back. I had to tighten up my budget and those trips cross country were the first to go unfortunately.
Ok so I need some opinions.
I am thinking of giving the weave a break and straightening my hair at my next appointment at the end of the month.
My hair is at a good length that I can wear it confidently but I am concerned that it not being in protective styles will cause it to break off.
I like wearing straight hair but with my workout regiment, I don’t think it will last. I don’t want to get a relaxer. Any thoughts on what I should do? Maybe I will just keep my hair in a bun.
@movingforward13 I think it's best to consult with Shamira. This is probably bad advice, but I wouldn't work out for the 1rst 3 days . Then on day 3/4 when I do workout, I would do it with my hair wrapped.
Okay y’all... after years of waiting I finally got to sit in Reniece’s chair. I had a lot of damage on my hair cis I took down locs and needed a professional trim.
I swear nobody has ever been more careful with my hair ... I kept wanting to tell her to just cut the ssk or work faster but she didn’t pull or break a single strand. It took 8 hrs y’all for her to separate, detangle, shampoo and dc, blow dry and trim. She is extremely sweet and knowledgeable. She also cut much less hair than I anticipated. We talked about you @nyeredzi when discussing routines and styling options since our texture is similar.
