WIGS, WEAVES & EXTENSIONS

Weaves, wigs and extensions are an excellent way to "put your hair away", this will allow your hair to hibernate and take a break from daily wear and tear and from heat and excessive combing and/or brushing the hair.

Weaves are a very healthy alternative if done right. I as the Owner of Sugar Salon will give you my first hand opinion on what's healthy and what's not with weave wear. I have seen so many unhealthy weaves which can cause lots of damage to the hair and to the hairline. If you desire weaves or extensions "the healthy way"..... Call 770-813-7718 and set up a FREE weave consultation with M. Williams today.

RETURN TO YOUR ROOTS WITH NATURAL HAIR!

Wow natural hair has made a HUGE comeback and it's beautiful! Women are standing loud and proud and wearing their natural beautiful natural hair. It's been a long time coming and the day is at hand. Now that you have natural/chemical-free hair, do you know the healthy way to care for it? One key thing about natural hair is that it's usually craving moisture.... So the solution is steam hydration! Natural hair tends to feel dry, brittle and hard, but we at Sugar Salon have the resolution for you and we offer steam hydration. Steaming will make your hair: soft, silky, moisturized, healthy and most importantly, it will be hydrated. It is recommended to do steam hydration on a monthly basis and if you plan to do the straight look a lot as opposed to the natural or kinky look, then keratin straightening is recommended so that heat damage does not occur. I am the Owner of Sugar Salon and I too have natural hair and I wear it loudly and proudly!!! We have some fabulous Natural Hair Stylists at the salon and Kenia and Shavonne look forward to servicing you. www.sugarsalon.net

Hairloss, Why Me???????

Do you ever ask yourself why is my hair shedding, breaking and suchlike? There could be a number of reasons, but if you regularly have your hair done by a professional licensed Hair Stylist, then you can definitely inquire of him or her. But if you doing your own relaxers and permanent hair color, then that could be one of the reasons.

Some lay people don't understand the chemistry behind the chemicals that are used in a professional salon. For instance, most women think that no-lye "box perms" as they are non-professionally preferred to are milder than regular relaxers used in a salon. They think oh it's gotta be mild, because I can buy it in the Beauty Supply Store and don't have to have a license. This is a misnomer. This is not true at all and couldn't be the furthest thing from the truth. The truth is that no-lye relaxer sold in a box, with a bottle of liquid that you pour in, mix together and use actually have more of a drying effect on hair, hence more breakage.

We all know that ethnic hair needs more moisture, not less. Therefore if you use the no-lye relaxers, which are calcium hydroxide relaxers, you are going to actually experience more damage, more breakage, more dryness etc.... You are going to be wondering why in the world is my hair breaking and shedding if you are using a so called milder relaxer. Well, it's because of #1 you probably applied it at home yourself, which causes overlapping, resulting in overprocessing, resulting in shedding, breaking etc. And #2 you probably used no-lye relaxer, which definately means damage and breakage.

Hairloss can also be caused by: genetics/heredity, taking prescription medications, low iron (amenia), smoking, not taking multivitamins, autoimmune diseases such as Lupus, not eating nutricious meals and a plethera of other reasons. But if you are doing your own chemicals at home such as relaxers and hair color, you are more than likely overprocessing your own hair, which will definiately cause breakage.

KERATIN STRAIGHTENING THE CHEMICAL-FREE ALTERNATIVE....

I like to call Keratin Straightening the "Chemical Free Alternative", simply because if you are natural, you can wear the straight look in a healthy way. Keratin is NOT a chemical, it is a protein our hair already has keratin in it, so it's simply adding something back to your hair that depletes over time and that will make your hair healthy, make it thicker and make it longer. I am the Owner of Sugar Salon and I have had three keratin treatments done and my hair has grown and I love it. We of GK "The Best' Keratin, as well as Design Essentials Amino Acid Straightener.

For more info or a free consultation please give us a call at 770-813-7718. Keratin Straightening lasts 3 to 5 months depending on your own upkeep and after care. Our clients who have it always see: hair growth, hair get fuller/thicker, ease of styling and less time to blow out and flat iron and they love being able to go from a straight look to a natural look with just a shampoo. Need more information? Just give us a call.

Relaxers... Sodium Hydroxide -vs- Calcium Hydroxide/No-Lye

Many clients want to know the difference between sodium hydroxide relaxers and no-lye (calcium hydroxide) relaxers. Well, the difference is the chemical makeup of the two. The sodium hydroxide relaxers are the more commonly used in professional salons. Sodium Hydroxide is the main chemical ingredient that straightens the hair, these relaxers have a less drying effect on the hair and they are usually only sold to licensed professionals. Although they are less drying on the hair, they do tend to irritate the scalp a bit more, causing the scalp to itch and burn faster than the calcium hydroxide (no lye) relaxers.

The No Lye Relaxers contain Calcium Hydroxide and are less irritating on the scalp, causing less itching and burning during the relaxer process. Most Stylist's use no lye relaxers if a client informs them that they have a "sensitive scalp". I am personally not a fan of using no lye relaxers and do not offer them to my clients because the Calcium Hydroxide causes a build up on the hair shaft, which causes a drying effect on the hair and make the hair dryer and dryer and dryer, depleting much needed moisture from the hair, which eventually causes breakage, brittle hair and damage; the build up is ever present and can not be removed. Our hair needs moisture, just like a plant needs water.... When a plant goes a long time without being watered, it will become brittle and will eventually break and die. The same happens with hair.

So called "organic relaxers" such as Phytospecific, claim to be organic, which is very misleading to the lay person (non stylist), because although the Phyto relaxer has soy and egg in it, it still contains a chemical which is needed to get hair straight; egg and soy definitely will not straighten hair. Therefore Calcium Hydroxide is present and contained in the Phytospecific Relaxer. Any time you have to open a bottle of liquid "activator" and pour it into the relaxer and stir it up, that means you are using a Calcium Hydroxide Relaxer (no lye) and those types of relaxers can be purchased by non-licensed people. Due to that fact, women tend to think that no lye relaxers are less damaging, when in fact that is the opposite. I definitely recommend sodium hydroxide relaxers over calcium hydoxide (no lye) relaxers any day. And whenever my clients inform me that they have sensitive, easy to burn or easy to irritate scalp, I simply base their scalp heavily with a protectant and/or have them to base their own scalp the day prior to their relaxer and I will base it again with a scalp protector when they arrive for their service. Do you have questions??? If so, email your questions to info@sugarsalon.net. I will respond with answers. Thank you for reading!
