Last week, my client came in to purchase products, and we were talking about the various uses of butters in the hair. She does twistouts for her daughter and wanted to know why butters tend to lay on the hair in a twistout and if there was a way to get the butter to penetrate. I explained to her that the butter is a sealant for the hair to hold in the layers of moisture underneath. I told her to try some form of heat on the butter to make it smoother on the hair and gave her several sample products to try.
Today, this client came back and told me she used Jane Carter Nourish and Shine to twist her daughter’s hair and she sat under a heating cap for penetration. While she was here, her daughter called to give the results of the twistout. The daughter was on speakerphone raving about her hair and how soft and defined her twists were with the heat from the heating cap and the Nourish and Shine. Even the day after, she said her hair was still very soft and manageable, exactly the result she was looking for.
I will have to try this technique in the salon and post a “how to” to get the best results.
As a cosmetologist, I am always glad to help. ❤ Ally
This is my daughter Jasmine :). She will be 16 and is as stubborn as a mule. But thankfully for me, she has always wanted her hair natural. She has 4C texture hair and it is low porosity. She has been using store-bought products which, as you can see, have left her hair extremely dry. I was at my wits end when I remembered that I had tried a sample pack of Qhemet Biologics products over a year ago, and I knew it was designed for her hair texture. So I ordered some for the salon and as soon as I got it, I strapped her down in the chair like a patient (jokes) and went to work.
The Picture of Product Buildup
The Qhemet Biologics line got it right with moisture-rich products that are not thick and gummy. I used to be under the misconception that a conditioning product had to be heavy and thick to work. Not so with this line. My daughters hair has the tightly closed cuticle, so the lightness of Qhemet Biologics conditioning ghee and detangling ghee allows the product to penetrate deeply to separate and detangle the hair. Then we applied the heavy cream and massaged it into her hair, sat her under the dryer for 15-20 minutes, and finished with a shine spray. Her hair is back to life!!!
Products Used: Qhemet Biologics Moringa Tree Conditioning Ghee, Qhemet Biologics Cocoa Tree Detangling Ghee, Qhemet Biologics Amla & Olive Heavy Cream
She agreed to let me care for her hair every week. She may even let me give her regular trims, but I won’t press my luck. Teenagers, gotta love ’em!
My girl ❤
