Hair Extensions In Orlando: Taking Care Of Your Hair Extensions

Weave Orlando

The frustration of having thin hair, slow hair growth, unattractive or dull hair, is real. Many ladies face this every day and are at a loss on what to do. This is why hair extensions are an all time favorite. You get to protect your hair from harsh elements, thereby giving your hair the chance to grow out. You will also have the thicker, longer, more beautiful hair that you have always craved instantly. The darling of the whole idea is how fabulous you’d look as you flaunt your new extensions. We offer quality hair extensions in Orlando, and we will walk you through the best ways to care for them.

Hair Extensions create an opportunity to try out different styles that you couldn’t do with your hair. However, quality hair extensions are expensive. If you want a beautiful looking hair that will last for a long time, then it is necessary to take good care of it. Neglecting the hair might lead to clumping and shedding making it look fake and unattractive. Taking out some time to care for your extension will go a long way in keeping it intact, beautiful and durable. Shallamar’s hair solutions Orlando will give you all you need to care for your extensions. Every extension is unique and has products that suit it best, with our hair care plan, you won’t be confused. However, here are some general hair extension tips you need to know:

Brush your hair at least twice a day to stop snags and tangles from settling in. Brush from the bottom till you get to the top of the hair. Use a wide toothed comb first to unfurl the tangles before using a normal bristle brush.

Hair extensions get dry easily. This is because it doesn’t get any natural oils from your body as your natural hair does. So, use only quality moisturizing products for your extensions. Your hairdresser will show you the best products to use and how to use them to care for your hair. Moisturizing your extension gives it a longer life span and makes it look soft, shiny and healthy.

Do not wash your hair and pile it on top carelessly because it will tangle. When it is wet, comb through carefully to avoid pulling out the hair because this is its most fragile state. Remember that what sheds, cannot grow again, so utmost care is advised. Before bedtime, put your hair up in a loose plait or ponytail to prevent tangling while you sleep.

Moisturising products are vital. They extend the lifespan of your extensions and keep them looking healthy and shiny. We encourage all our clients to be on a hair care plan at our salon in Orlando. You can opt for a weekly or bi-weekly program which is created to suit your hair and your lifestyle.

There are different techniques of wearing your hair extensions: fusion tape, braidless sew-in, sew-in, tape-in, i-tips, u-tips, extensions for thinning hair and hair loss, Micro link, etc. The extension can be used to change your hair color, increase the volume of your hair, add highlights or get the length you desire. Our hair stylists in Orlando are experts in installing hair extensions using various techniques.

Shallamars hair solutions can cater to your every need as far as hair is concerned. We have the best colorist salon in Orlando, we offer the most natural hair extensions in Orlando and provide quality service.

Here three favorite hair techniques in Orlando that we are exceptionally good at.

Interlock

This is a revolutionary braidless sew-in technique that involves attaching hair extensions to your natural hair without using braids or glue. Our Orlando hair specialists will sew every raw strand carefully to give it a beautiful, even look. Our Interlocking net wrapping system enables bald spots on your head to be hidden from the back, front and sides. The interlocking technique gives you a smooth, beautiful hair while maintaining your natural hair look.

2. Micro Links

Also known as I-tips, Micro bead or cold fusion extensions is another popular technique our professionals use. In this technique, plastic or metal micro beads with a tool are used to loop extensions and natural hair together. It is frequently used to add some inches and volume to your natural hair. The technique looks so real and can last up to 6 months if handled correctly.

3. Keratin Extension

It is also known as U-tips, hot fusion and fusion hair extensions and the technique is trendy in Orlando. U-tips are known for their durability. They can be worn day and night for several months.

 

tape-in-hair-extension-orlando

The technique involves using keratin (a fiber protein that is already available in real hair) to attach the extension to your natural hair. The keratin is melted to install the extensions and hardens when it cools. It is a safe method; the keratin wax can easily be removed whenever you want.

Our products and services revolve around relaxers, hair colors, highlights, hair weaves, extensions, hair replacements, styling, human virgin hair care, Botox keratin hair treatment, etc. We specialize in all hair types and textures including black and African American hair.

Orlando Hair Salon Offers Summertime Hair and Makeup

May 23rd, 2017 by

Summer is a busy time with graduations, proms, even weddings. Of course we all want to look the best, so what better time and place than our Orlando Hair Salon, where we specialize in multicultural hair and makeup services. 

Just in time for our Summertime Deals Special with incredible prices at a Hair Salon Close to Disney World

Curls are a great hairstyle for a wedding, prom, graduation, or any special event. It’s a perfect style to stand out and show off those beautiful bouncy curls. Even though some of us are not fortunate to have these naturally full curls, that doesn’t mean it cannot be achieved at our Orlando Hair Salon. The curls are then sealed with an expert hairspray given by a Hair Stylist in Orlando that will have hair last all day and night. For those times when it’s not so easy to get to an Orlando Hair Salon, here are 7 simple steps on how to touch-up those curls :

Step 1 : Heat up your flat iron. Make sure to allow the iron to heat up completely to temperature before starting to curl for flawless curls. A good tip for what temperature to use is about 320 F for thin hair and 430 F for thicker hair. Keep in mind that the tightness of the curls depend on the width of the flat iron.

Step 2 :  Dry your hair if it is wet, if not just make sure there are no damp spots. Brush the hair out from any tangles or knots. A voluminous mousse or moisturizer can be applied for more body when it is curled. 

Step 3 : It is so important to protect your hair from the heat of the iron. Apply a heat protection spray to protect it from the damage and dryness that commonly comes from using heat. 

Step 4 : Separate your hair in sections that are easy for you. Typically pin the top up with a clip and split the bottom in several parts depending on how many curls you want. Try to keep the sections pinned up and neat to make it easier as you go thru each part curling the hair.

Step 5 : Curl the hair. Take one part and if you want the curl coming from the root then clamp the hair with the iron as close to the scalp as possible and flip the flat iron making a u shape in the direction you want the curl to flow out. Continue that step throughout every section that was parted off.

Step 6 : Run your fingers through your hair to loosen some curls for a more natural look instead of all bunched up together (optional).

Step 7 : Finish this look with hairspray to make those curls last all day or night. 

With our Summer Deals, wash and curls prices starting at only $50 !!! …

Hair Extensions Orlando Care Guide

January 15th, 2017 by

There’s nothing worse than hair extensions in Orlando that are unkept. Matted hair with visible new growth and tracks will definitely get you some unwanted attention. Whether you’re keeping late nights studying for that degree, a multi-tasking mom, or just a boss babe, you probably chose hair extensions in Orlando to help you save time and effort when doing your hair. Protective styles are now very popular and it is no longer a taboo to hair weave in Orlando to enhance your look in between transitioning or for just personal style. As more and more women are opting for sew-ins, clip ins, tape ins, i-tips hair extensions in Orlando, u-tips hair extensions in Orlando etc. there is more of a need to be educated on how to take care of them. Caring for your human virgin hair in Orlando really should be one of the most important steps in your decision to get them. Would you be happy with hair extensions in Orlando that you shelled out a serious amount of cash for to only look good only about a month or so? Of course not!

blk_weave_b-af2

 

We expect so much from our hair weave in Orlando, not considering the work that needs to be put in to take care of them. Having gorgeous hair is an ongoing process, the results of which depends on you, your efforts and knowledge in the care of your human virgin hair extensions in addition to your hair stylist expert in Orlando. The better you take care of your hair extensions in Orlando, the longer they will last.  Hair extensions are NOT a wash and go style. It is important to remember that hair in hair extensions is human hair that will not receive your natural scalp oils hair and requires some precautions to keep the hair healthy and beautiful. Hair weave in Orlando get a bad rep for the damage they can cause if you do not properly care for your hair underneath.  Human hair extensions can be a great way to add fullness and length, change up your look or give your natural hair a break from styling. Follow these simple steps and you’ll minimize damage and optimize growth! Let’s take a look at 13 helpful tips on hair extensions maintenance:

  1. Brush hair gently working from ends toward scalp before and after washing. 
  2. Use a gentle conditioning/moisturizing shampoo for dry-color treated hair. NEVER USE A VOLUMIZING SHAMPOO! Volumizing shampoos raise the cuticle of hair and can cause tangling. 
  3. Wash hair gently in cool to warm water. Do not scrub roughly while washing. Gently comb through hair with fingers in a downward motion while washing and rinsing. 
  4. Do not apply conditioner to scalp or bonds. Too much conditioner or very oily hair can weaken the keratin bonds. 
  5. It is best not to wash more than 3 times a week unless you have a very oily scalp. Over washing will dry the hair. 
  6. Softly towel dry by patting with a towel before blow drying. 
  7. Rub Moroccan Argan oil or shine drops into the extensions after shampooing while still damp. (avoid the bonds)
  8. If extensions  become dry and damaged treat once to twice a week with a deep conditioner. 
  9. Brush gently 2-3 times a day. Brushing right up the scalp will keep tangles from forming at the base of the extension. Use one of the following brushes: 
    • Loop Brush ( med-thick hair) 
    • Boar Bristle Brush (med-fine hair) 
    • Wide Tooth Comb (ends only) 
  10. When blow-drying hair, blow downward with hair’s natural growth, not up into/against hair flow. Dry with fingers then style with a curling iron or flat iron if needed. 
  11. Swimming- Always wet hair with tap water, apply conditioner and braid hair before swimming to help avoid tangling. Avoid salt water ( the worst for extensions) and chlorine. 
  12. Braiding long extensions is recommended before bed. 
  13. NEVER GO TO BED WITH WET HAIR (causes tangling and matting) 

blk_weave_b-af

With our own hair, we have natural oils that keep the hair healthy, but this is not the case with human hair extensions in Orlando . By washing, conditioning, styling and gentle handling, your human hair extensions will last the six to eight weeks that they should.  Never perm or color virgin remy hair in Orlando extensions on your own. If you are looking for another style or color, your hair stylist expert in Orlando can sew in human virgin hair in Orlando extensions that already have the style and color you want. Use heated styling tools sparingly to prevent hair weave in Orlando from becoming dry and brittle. Schedule an appointment with your hair stylist expert in Orlando six to eight weeks after the hair extensions in Orlando are sewn in. Your hair stylist expert in Orlando can remove them or place filler tracks in the braids to update your look. If your hair shows signs of damage, such as broken hair at the roots, ask the hair stylist in Orlando here at our black hair salon in Orlando to remove the braids and allow your hair to rest.

weave-specialists

Another great tip before even installing your hair extensions in Orlando is that you deep condition your own natural hair before attaching your human virgin hair in Orlando extensions. Apply a deep conditioning product to damp hair then sit under a hooded dryer wearing a plastic cap for 20 minutes. No hooded dryer at your house? No problem. Leave the conditioner in for about 45 minutes to an hour with just the plastic cap and rinse well. You also want to oil your edges and scalp periodically while your hair extensions are in. Rosemary herb combined with an oil like jojoba or almond will condition hair as well as stimulate growth. You can mix the concoction in a squirt bottle so that you can apply directly to your scalp and avoid the contact with extension bonds. You want to maintain the beautiful quality so you can reuse your human hair extensions in Orlando by following these tips.  Proper care along with your Orlando hair stylist will make your human hair extensions last longer and look better. Call for a free hair consultation at our hair salon close to Disney with our hair stylist expert in Orlando and we will make your hair our affair!

Grades of Human Virgin Hair in Orlando

January 5th, 2017 by

The truth is there is no international or local body which is responsible for measuring and upholding the hair weave in Orlando industry standard for hair wholesalers or companies to adhere to when it comes to hair grading. So its very important that you are purchasing virgin human hair in Orlando from a reputable salon such as our hair salon located close to Disney.  Sadly many dishonest companies and salons have consistently misrepresented the grading of their hair as there is no authority to check or verify the quality.  Dishonest companies and salons have sold 3a and 4a graded hair calling it 6A, 7A, 8a and what makes things even worse is that every company’s grading system is different to other companies so NO TWO 6A, 7A, 8A GRADED HAIR between companies are the same. When it comes to hair extensions and hair weave in Orlando, we use only 8A Virgin Remy Human Hair that is never processed, bleached or chemically untouched. Depending on personal taste and specific expectations of the client, we offer massive range of hair extensions and weaves made of Virgin Remy Human Hair. We utilize the grading system as a guide to our customers all of our Premium highest graded hairs are equivalent to 8a graded hair and above , due to the ever changing grading system. Our Human hair in Orlando is 8A graded hair that may be called 9A by another company up to 12 A by some companies. As a black hair salon in Orlando OUR REPUTATION IS OUR EVERYTHING. Our human hair is the highest quality 100% with cuticle intact and aligned virgin human hair in Orlando. Virgin Remy Hair is also known as Virgin Cuticle Hair is the HIGHEST QUALITY hair on the market! It is 100% human hair in Orlando with all the cuticles intact.  

hair-weaves-in-orlando

Human virgin hair in Orlando is hair that has never been colored or processed chemically in anyway shape or form. The “virgin hair” is collected by tying off the hair to maintain the direction of the cuticle and then cut. After the hair is cut and collected it can then be sewn on a weft, pre-bonded for strand by strand installation, made into wigs or left in bulk form. Virgin Remy Human hair is when all of the hair is human hair, cuticles are intact and all the strands are strictly aligned with the roots in one direction.

mX4-ZBXqFQKQPJjzd__NYxQ

There is also a widespread misconception that in order to be considered the best quality hair it is soft and silky but the truth is any type of hair can be made soft and silky through the use of an appropriate conditioner or by coating the hair in silicon oil products during manufacturing. These treatments will eventually wash out and it wont be until after it has been washed a few times, been styled with heat styling tools or you apply any kind of chemical treatment such as hair dye on your hair extension in Orlando that you can see the differences in hair quality. 

hair-weave-using-lace-closures

The grade of your hair extensions refers not to the quality of the hair but to the thickness of the hair extensions to the ends, the higher the grade the thicker they are at the ends. Hair extension in Orlando thickness starts at A Grade, this is the lowest grade available (very spindly at the ends) through to 8A Grade (also known as Single Drawn, this is the highest grade available). We only carry the highest grade 8A  hair extensions which means 85-90% of the hair is the same length all the way to the ends of your human hair Orlando extensions. The quality also relates to the care taken to ensure that all the hairs are the same length don’t hair split ends or any kind of damaged. The higher the grade of hair, the more time taken to ensure there are no imperfections. The current grading system goes from 3A to 10A. The higher the grade, the fuller it is with no shedding or tangling.  Let’s start from the bottom to the top. 

virgin-peruvian-human-hair-orlando

 

4A and 5A Grade Hair – This is lower grade hair that is usually sold in the local Beauty supply store. We wouldn’t advise ANYONE to purchase 4A or 5A grade hair bundles. This hair is going to be very low quality and will tangle and shed like crazy. However, if you will only wear for a very short period of time and it is best purchased in shorter lengths no longer than 12 inches to prevent tangles. When caring for this grade of hair you want to be sure to use leave in conditioner and lightly oiling the tips/ends of the hair and wrap completely at night. Never detangle low grade hair while wet it will only make the tangling worse and leave you with the dreaded final option of cutting.

6A Grade Hair – This is a better grade of hair that works well with straight hair. It is also great for people on a budget. This grade hair can be re-used and is great for 12 to 18 inches and can last up to a year. I will advise anyone who wishes to have longer lengths over 18 inches to purchase 7A or 8A grade of hair. When caring for this grade of hair, you will want to apply leave in conditioner at least once a week and wrap at night. You might even be able to get away with detangling this grade of hair while wet, but only after applying conditioner before detangling.

7A and 8A Grade Hair – These grades of hair  might be a little more expensive, but well worth the cost because of the voluminous quality. If you desire a length over 18 inches you should without a question purchase 7A or 8A grade hair. The higher grade of human hair is going to have less tangling and the longer or curlier the hair the more likely it is to tangle. So, if you would like a long body wave hair 7A would work just fine, but if you are a person who likes curlier hair like Kinky Curly, you always want to go with an 8A grade human hair in Orlando. The maintenance of this hair is the most simple due to its higher grade. You want to apply leave in conditioner at least once a week and wrap at night.

The most important thing you need to know about the Grades of Human Virgin Hair in Orlando you see attached to hair ads; it’s not a formal, regulated system. The most important features to look for when shopping for human hair extensions is quality, virgin remy hair. To qualify as virgin, the extensions cannot be dyed or permed. To qualify as quality cuticle remy hair the cuticles must be intact and aligned. The higher the grade the healthier the hair. Remy indicates that the cuticles are aligned and not stripped by way of acid bath. Remy hair has a natural luster whereas hair that has gone through an acid bath is then dipped in silicone to appear to have a shine that wears off quickly during daily/regular maintenance. So how do you use virgin Remy human hair Orlando grades to purchase hair? By not using virgin hair grades to make a decision. Use research and your own judgement with the guidance of a hair stylist expert in Orlando. Take the hair into your own hands literally. Whether you have a desire to get a bouncy look with deep curls, elegant look with straight hair or you want to look cool with wavy hair, you are at a right place here at Shallamar’s Hair Solution. Each hair type is available in multiple textures, types and sizes. In addition to hair extensions, we use 100% pure, 8A human virgin hair in Orlando  for lace front wigs.

New Year New Do with Hair Stylist Expert in Orlando

December 29th, 2016 by

Jump start the new year with a new hairdo from one of our hair stylist experts in Orlando. 2017 is right around the corner and if your feeling that time for a change in your life, why not start brainstorming on hair inspirations, because even in the most inconsistent and unpredictable times, the one thing you are always in complete control of is your hair! When deciding on the right hairdo for yourself, there are a few basic things to consider before you step into our hair salon close to Disney for your New Year New Do: your face shape, hair texture and skin tone.  Whether you are looking for a new haircut, hair weave in Orlando, hair extension in Orlando, hair color in Orlando or want to start the new year with a personalized hair solution in Orlando such as Botox Keratin treatment Orlando, lets discuss what you should consider with the experience and intelligence of our hair stylist expert in Orlando

 

botox-hair-treatment

Face Shape: Not every person needs to consider face shape since your face shape only matters if you have a feature you’d like to downplay like a pointy chin or a large forehead or a really long face. The right hairstyle can downplay those features, whereas a wrong one can highlight them. You also want to determine what your face shape is.

An oval face shape is where the forehead and jaw are the same width. This particular face shape works well with any shape and style, you just want to avoid styles that hang in your beautiful face shape.


rwpower_01_lg_1

 

A round face shape is where the length is approximately equal to width. Hairstyles that work well with this shape are those with height and fullness at the crown creating an illusion of a narrower face. Middle parts also create this illusion. No bangs are ideal because the focus point become the bridge of the nose creating a more oval shape.  If you absolutely love bangs they would look best swept across the face. You want to avoid hairstyles that add volume width wise like chin length bob cuts.ewsunny_02_lg_1

 

A square face shape is distinguished by a strong and broad forehead as well as a angular jaw.  Hairstyles you may want to try are wispy bangs swept over to one side to create a diagonal movement to minimize square shapes as well as styles with height at the crown will work in your favor. You want to avoid blunt bobs sitting chin length and heavy bangs that will magnify your jaw line and squareness. Middle parts with solid bangs may also not work in your favor. 


2371_amal_macadamialr

heart face shape is wide at the forehead and cheekbones and narrow at the jawline. Any textured chin-length hairstyle or shoulder length cuts with wispy layers that kick out will work best for this face shape. If you want bangs try side swept bangs not blunt cut straight across bangs as this will only make your face shorter and wider.  Also adding height on top if you prefer longer styles will work in your favor. Avoid slick back looks that emphasize your upper face. 

A triangular face shape is identified by a wide jawline and narrow forehead and cheekbones.Hairstyles to try are layered hairstyles that will balance and soften prominent jaw line, especially when tapered at the jaw line can be especially flattering.  Try to avoid hairstyles that draw too much attention to your chin area such as blunt bobs.

diamond face shape is when the cheekbones are high and wide and the forehead and jawline are narrow.  This shape face is one that works well with blunt straight across bangs that will help shorten long faces as well as side parts. Hairstyles that tuck behind ears to extenuate the amazing cheek bone structure this face shape has. Also chin length bobs or shoulder length hairstyles compliment this face shape. You will want to avoid short styles with height on top that leave no hair on the neck area or chin area.  You also want to avoid middle parts as this adds length.  

2

 

An  oblong face shape is longer than it is wide with a long straight cheek line. Layered styles in medium and long lengths with body created by wavy and curly textures can soften the straight long lines of this face shape. Also chin and shoulder length hairstyles that turn under or kick out compliment this face shape.  You will want to avoid middle parts, height at the crown and the absence of bangs will only lengthen your face.

Hair Texture: Our hair stylist expert in Orlando will assist you in determining your exact hair texture and hairstyle for your new year new do. A universal truth about the hair we are born with is that nobody is satisfied with their natural born hair type. Ladies with pin straight long hair that curly girls crave complain that their hair is limp and dead.  While women with thick full curly hair complain over frizz and those with wavy hair moan about how inconsistent their curl pattern is. No one is ever satisfied, but let our hair stylist expert in Orlando assist you in leaving our hair salon near Disney completely satisfied and provide a hair solution in Orlando by helping you understand that it’s not your hair type it’s your haircut style. The right haircut style can transform straight hair from flat to full and wavy, curly or highly textured hair to frizz free locks with a bounce in every step. It can also save you time styling in the morning. 

does-keratin-help-the-hair

Type 1 Straight Hair reflects the most sheen. It is also the most resilient hair of all of the hair types. It is hard to damage and next to impossible to curl this hair texture. Because the sebum (natural oil produced in the sebaceous glands of the scalp) gently works its way from the scalp to the ends without the interference of curls or kinks, it is the most oily hair texture of all, which
has the tendency to fall flat fast and an expert cut is needed since straight hair has no forgiving factor and any mistakes made will be very visible. The right cut from a hair stylist expert in Orlando would be a blunt style keeping the thickness and fullness of the hair.  You may also consider adding a few long layers being careful not to thin out the bottom and make the hair appear stringy.  Dry cutting is the ideal technique with this hair type, never a razor cut that can sheer the hair and sever ends. You want to keep your cut about an inch or two past your shoulders or it will get weighed down and be more difficult to create volume. A pixie cut for short hair is also ideal cut in an abstract style to create layers which add volume and allows great versatility. 

220

Type 2 Wavy Hair lies somewhere between straight and curly hair. It also imparts sheen, more than curly hair, but less than straight hair. Wavy hair is typically more prone to frizz. Producing perfect waves all comes down to the haircut style. Layers, layers and more layers is ideal, but being careful not too add to many that will leave you with the dreaded “mushroom” cut. Your hair stylist expert in Orlando here at our hair salon near Disney will ensure layers are placed through out the interior and exterior of the hair creating a draping effect that will add softness and definition especially when shaped with a razor. For women with long wavy hair, the most flattering cut is long, graduating layers with a side-angled or sweeping bang.  Adding a few face-framing pieces will also keep hair from crowding or elongating your features. You want to avoid blunt or bob styles with this length as the bottom may get to heavy and give your hair a triangular look. If you prefer a short style you should stick to a one length cut as too many layers will make you look rounded also adding a long bang and texturizing ends can soften the look.

Type 3 Curly Hair is where we will get a little scientific on you.  As a black hair salon in Orlando we specialize in hair weave in Orlando that is more often then not the hair solution in Orlando for this specific hair texture. But more and more naturalistas are standing up and embracing their texture.  Let’s briefly discuss the chemistry behind your curls. The amount of curl in your hair is dependent on the number of disulfide bonds between hair proteins found in the hair shaft. The hair is made up mostly of keratins and other proteins that are formulated in the cells of the hair follicle becoming a a part of the hair shaft and contain sulfur atoms.  When two sulfur atoms pair up and bond, they form a disulfide bond; the more links the curlier the hair, the less links the straighter it is. Most curly women and girls have at the minimum 2 different hair textures of hair on their head. If you pull a strand of a type 3 curly, you will notice it has a definite S shape with or without products. This hair type is full bodied, climate dependent (humidity = frizz), and damage prone. Lack of proper care renders dull curls. If you apply too much styling product= weighed down/greasy looking curls, apply too little styling product = afro! The key to guaranteeing effortless, frizz free curls is proper styling product application. Sticking to a cleanse, condition, moisturize, then apply your styling product of choice routine will maintain those luscious locks. A layered cut is best for this hair type because it removes bulk, creates movement, and helps with curl placement—the layers create a cascading effect where the curls fall into each other, creating better flow, balance and as previously mentioned, shape. Cutting curly hair while dry is an absolute. You want your hair blown out prior to cutting so you can see the true length and therefore achieve a precision cut.

Type 4 Kinky Hair this tightly coiled hair is quite fine and fragile contrary to popular belief. It is wiry, and delicate by nature. Each strand usually has a zig zag pattern. Kinky hair is the driest hair type and therefore needs added moisture daily to prevent breakage and give the hair suppleness and elasticity. A misconception exists that this hair type does not grow. Kinky hair grows at the same rate as other texture what makes it hard to grow is when not treated properly it can break more than other textures. Treat this hair type like a fine silk blouse – cleanse gently, detangle softly, and avoid harsh chemicals. You want to start with a creamy, sulfate free, moisturizing cleanser, follow suit with a super hydrating conditioner, prep with a rich moisturizer and style with a rich cream, full of natural oils and rich butters. Look for moisturizing humectants, natural conditioning agents, and exotic extracts to add moisture to these locks. Avoid mineral, and petrolatum oil and heavy waxes. Some women with kinky textured hair choose to relax their locks. We offer many different smoothing treatments such as Keratin treatments Orlando, Botox Keratin treatment Orlando that last until the hair is cut or grown out, and allow for more options with the cut. And although with these treatments you are changing the texture
of your hair it is best to stick with a cut designed for this hair type, in the event you re-embrace your natural texture.

A custom wig made of human hair in Orlando is made specifically for you and all the specifications that you choose.  You select the hair style, type of hair, texture, density, coloration, length and even the construction of the cap. Our hair stylist experts in Orlando will take your own specific head measurements for a perfect fit. What makes us leaders in the industry is that we ensure that we only use grade 5A to 8A virgin, unprocessed human hair when creating customized wigs. Being a reputable black hair salon in Orlando our virgin hair is never mixed with poor quality hair. We design wigs using several hair types such as Brazilian, Indian, Peruvian, Mongolian, Cambodian, Malaysian and more. 


When in search of hair replacement in Orlando and with protective styling season on the horizon, the mystery of what the difference between a lace front/full wig and a silk top wig will be cleared up in this article.


Let’s begin with Lace Front wigs. These wigs have a sheer lace strictly in the front edges of the unit that are cut off just prior to be installed on your head. An illusion of a natural hair line can be achieved with a lace front wig. The base of a lace front wig is not made of lace but rather a thicker material that is still comfortable to wear. 

Lace front wigs are used by many celebrities. 


Unlike the lace front wig, full lace wigs have a base that is made fully of lace giving a more versatile look than a lace front wig. This has the most flexibility and can be worn in a high ponytail. This is made normally from a stretch cap where individual strands are pulled through and applied with an adhesive like tape or bonding. To preserve your baby hairs,  it is possible to sew combs or clips on the full lace instead of using adhesives. 

Silk Top Base is the most realistic technique on the market today. A Silk top base gives the appearance of having a scalp that looks like your own, because the roots of the hair on the wig are hidden under the silk base. The Silk Top Base is constructed with a layer of lace, and pure silk fabric on the top front of the cap. The silk base basically does what the wig cap would – it creates the illusion of a scalp.There is some flexibility and it is usually multi-directional at the crown of the head. You cannot wear this in a high ponytail or off the face unless intricate detailing and styling is done by one of our hair stylist experts in Orlando


The U-part wig is designed to give the look of a sew-in but without the fuss and stress to the hair. Simply pull some of your own hair thru the U-shaped opening at top then blend and style.


Whether you decide silk or lace wigs, our custom wigs are handmade and customized to suit you and your personal style in 24 hours or less. They are a wonderful alternative to create a unique new look in minutes anytime the mood hits you for a change. 


Wig maintenance is also a breeze. You want to wash your wig at least once a week with shampoo but not more than twice.  We recommend using shampoos formulated for dry, colored or permed hair that are infused with vitamins & herbs and that have a low ph-balance. Step one is brushing out any tangles gently before you wet the hair using a wide tooth comb working your way up gradually from the tips. Next, wash the inside of the cap preferably with an anti-bacterial liquid soap. Then you want to fill a sink of luke-warm water and add a cap-full of shampoo to it. While holding the top of the cap, immerse the wig into the water and gently cleanse from root to tip. Do not soak the wig, this will cause tangles.  Rinse with cold water making sure the water is flowing in the same direction as the hair to remove the shampoo. Squeeze only the hair not the cap in a towel to remove the excess water and spread conditioner down the hair length using your fingers and gently squeeze hair. Do not apply conditioner close to the base of the wig, this can loosen the knots and cause slipping when brushing.  You may use a wide tooth comb to distribute and leave it on for 5 minutes or longer. Rinse the hair and lightly wrap with a thick towel. Simply allow it to air dry to maintain smoothness and manageability. Blow drying hair will cause frizz if you are pressed for time only use a warm setting. You may add a moisturizer or leave in conditioner. Avoid products that contain alcohol which may dry out the hair. Try not to wear your wig down in hot humid weather or very cold weather. Instead try a protective style like a bun or ponytail. Always wear a swimming cap. Also try to avoid sleeping with wig on, if you must add leave in conditioner and wrap with a silk or satin cap/scarf. 


One of the greatest benefits to wearing a custom wig is that it is a great alternative to a sew-in that often create tension on the hair which can result in thinning the edges and we all know how we need them baby hairs. They also allow for protective styling, zero tension on your natural hair, versatility in allowing you to remove the piece at your convenience allowing you to treat and care for your natural hair. 


We specialize in custom virgin human hair wigs in Orlando, as well as ready-made wigs and cater to everyone- from clients with hair loss, thinning hair to clients undergoing treatment for medical conditions. We ensure the best, highest quality and custom made to fit offered in various base types, lengths, colors and textures. Once installed to perfection, you can experiment with a variety of different styles from curling and straightening to coloring and highlighting your custom wig anytime with ease. Our hair colorists in Orlando would love to assist you in choosing a color and or style to fit your personal needs and lifestyle. 


When looking for a hair solution in Orlando, come see us and let’s have some fun and create the lace or silk top wig you have always dreamed about in 24 hours or less. 



 

To Wash or Not to Wash Hair Living in Orlando

December 4th, 2016 by

How often should you wash your hair? Our hair stylist experts in Orlando give a general rule of thumb that is every 2 to 3 days. Which may take some back a bit envisioning greasy, dirty smelly hair but this is simply a general rule and only you know your hair. So in this article we will be discussing a hair solution in Orlando on the different types of hair and new ways to have healthy clean hair without stripping oils with a daily washing routine.

We suggest that only a small group of people need to wash their hair on a daily basis. Individuals with very thin hair, oily scalp, exercises allot or works outside and sweats allot or those who live in really humid areas where our hair salon close to Disney is located. 

The thicker your hair and the less oily the less you need to wash your hair. Dry hair or curly hair can be washed allot less often. 

When styling your hair or using heating styling tools on it it is crucial to make sure your hair is super clean when you start, the style will not only look better but will last longer. If you have a keratin treatments in Orlando or blow out done you can go as long as a week without shampooing your hair. 

There are methods that allow you to go longer between washes. Dry shampoos are one way to prolong the need to shampoo your hair traditionally. The powder absorbs the oil in your hair keeping it fresher longer. Apply to roots only. Applying at night also works wonders to absorb oil over night.   Also the method of co-shampooing or “co-poo” which is the use of conditioner to “wash” your hair. You simply re wet your hair and use a leave in conditioner to add moisture to dry hair. 

Less-frequent shampooing can improve the quality of your hair dramatically as well as save you money allowing you to purchase higher-quality shampoos and conditioners since you will be using less product. 

How about nixing shampoo completely out of your hair care routine and opting for the “no-poo” method. This method involves using baking soda and apple cider vinegar as your cleaning and conditioning treatment. Some people who are sensitive to the smell of the apple cider vinegar will add essential oils to diffuse the smell. Also for individuals with dry hair have added an oil such as coconut oil, olive oil, avocado oil etc. to add moisture as baking soda can be drying to the hair. A baking soda wash and vinegar rinse wont strip your hair of anything but dirt. Vinegar has also been known to set hair dyes and you will experience less fading with this method. And for grey hair our hair colorist in Orlando say this method will whiten hair vs shampoos that will give grey hair a yellow tone. 

To create this wash all you will need is one table spoon of baking soda to a cup of water and scrub away. Next take about a half a cup of vinegar and rinse the wash out.  You can either leave the vinegar in or rinse out. If your hair shows signs of drying out you can alternate and do every other wash with baking soda. Also a weekly hot oil treatment is recommended even daily if your hair does not begin to get overly oily. 

The final verdict, at most you should wash your hair 2 to 3 times a week. If your hair gets oily in between washes you can use a dry shampoo or  if your hair gets dry you can co-shampoo with a leave in conditioner to add moisture. Or you can be brave and bold and go totally “no-poo”. So how many times do you wash your hair living in Orlando is all a game of doing what works best for you and your lifestyle here in Orlando. 

 

Botox vs Keratin – Living In Orlando

November 29th, 2016 by

Botox vs Keratin, living in Orlando can be a challenge in choosing the correct one to control your hair and give the best results for your hair.

In the battle to fight frizz, we have in one corner Hair Botox treatment and in the other the ever so trending Keratin treatment.

orlando-salon-offers-botox
Let’s call out the reigning champion Keratin Hair treatment.

Orlando-Keratin-Treatment
Keratin treatments fill in the porosity of your hair, as overly-porous hair causes tangles, frizz, and breakage, your hair is made up of keratin, so the treatment is putting the protein back into the hair, which is often lost due to age and chemical services. We here at Shallamar’s only use the best quality products both tested and approved by our expert stylist in Orlando. We choose to use Pure Brazilian keratin products.

pure brazilian b&A
These amazing products are formaldehyde-free, a harmful and toxic chemical many considering a keratin treatment are concerned with. We provide two types of Keratin treatments. The first is the traditional Pure Brazilian Keratin treatment which lasts 3 to 4 months. The second is our Keratin Express Blow Out that lasts for 4 to 6 weeks which is perfect for those that want to try Keratin but don’t want the long term commitment. Contrary to belief Keratin treatments won’t make your hair break, but the flat-ironing might. “The hair breakage has nothing to do with the treatments and everything to do with the flat irons that are used to dry and seal the hair afterward,” says New York dermatologist Neil Sadick, MD. “Some stylists may use a flat iron that is way too hot and scorches hair, making it break off.” That is why our hair stylist experts in Orlando hair salon are thoroughly trained on the extensive and intricate care of hair.

Orlando-keratin-Treatment2
A few bonuses to a Keratin treatment is your color will “pop” and look radiant and healthy making your hair grow effortlessly because of this new protective layer. Your hair will not be able to break or have split ends and the result will be longer and healthier hair! Keratin treatments and products are best for thick, curly, frizzy or coarse hair. Because it actually repairs hair, keratin treatments are also good for damaged or chemically treated hair (colored, permed, relaxed, highlighted or bleached). Keratin treatments are not intended for fine, straight or thin hair, but hair care products containing keratin are awesome for these hair types looking to repair damage, fight frizz, and protect strands. Hair treated with keratin treatment becomes naturally straight, frizz free, shiny and smooth and generally more manageable. It shouldn’t become frizzy even when exposed to humid environments found in Florida, but its effect does not last long on chemically treated and porous hair. It is not suitable for super fine, thin or straight hair. Also, Keratin treatment is not recommended for pregnant women, nursing women and for children under 12 years of age.
Now calling out the new revolutionary Hair Botox treatment.
First things first, no it does not have actual Botox in it nor does it involve any needles coming in contact with your scalp. It’s advertised as a more “natural” frizz eliminator and hair straighter than a keratin treatment.

brazilian-keratin-treatment
The way that Botox procedure can wind back the clock for your facial wrinkles, Hair Botox can transform hurt and abused hair back to its lustrous, natural form. With this moisture-injecting procedure, your hair will become healthy, radiant and much more manageable. It has a powerful concentrate of active ingredients to battle the over-processed chemicals that leave hair look lifeless and dull. It works upon each strand from root to tip of hair, restoring the damaged cortex and hair cuticles through its ultra-nourishing technology. It is applicable on any hair type. Hair Botox is free of formaldehyde and other harsh chemicals and acts as a deep conditioning treatment which restores the damaged hair by turning it healthy and shiny. Hair Botox also helps with scalp conditions, such as dandruff and psoriasis. Unlike relaxing treatments, this product can give you straight silky hair without breaking their bonds. It contains a rich formula that shoots nutrients into the damaged cortex of the shaft cuticles and restores hair from inside out. Again here at Shallamar’s we only use the best and found the best to be Kashmir.
plastic2
Kashmir Hair Botox advanced properties penetrate the hair material and make the necessary corrections, which include: (closing spaces in which the protein is lacking). This is the essence of the Botox treatment by allowing hair treated with Kashmir Hair Botox look healthier and full of luster. Vitamins and minerals that are found in Kashmir Hair Botox recharge the hair and restore it from within the hair shaft, the treatment is maintained over time and prolongs the life of the hair. Hair Botox literally reverts your hair back to its healthiest state by plugging up all the holes, repairing internal damage, fixing the tears, and hydrating withered hair. As we age, so does our hair making this an ideal hair treatment for 35 year old women and up with aging hair converting it into healthy and youthful hair.

Hair will produce less Keratin over time and a protein complex is essential for vitality. Hair Botox works through each piece of hair, from root to tip, restoring from the destruction that we wreak upon ourselves. The secret behind Kashmir Hair Botox treatments are the natural microscopic particles, which encourage the absorption of vitamins, antioxidants and proteins into the hair. Hair Botox also works as a great re-constructive treatment as the organic microspheres help minimize hair loss. Hair Botox works on all types of hair! Straight hair, curly hair and any type in between will benefit from this treatment. Everyone deserves manageable hair, and this protein-packed formula delivers noticeable results.

Now let’s summarize….
Both hair treatments have a smoothing effect on hair which significantly decrease styling time nearly in half, so you’ll have more time in your morning to run late. Because salon treatments don’t require FDA approval, you need to do your own due diligence if you want a truly formaldehyde-free service and if you have any concerns Botox is the way to go.
Keratin treatment is not recommended for pregnant or nursing women and children under the age of twelve. The treatment is not intended for super fine, straight or thin hair where Hair Botox is suitable for all hair types. This treatment is aimed at you if you have very fine, dry, colored, bleached, dull, lifeless, or fried hair full of split ends. The treatment is safe enough to use on pregnant women.
Keratin treatment is a better option if you want straight and manageable hair since the keratin treatment straightens hair more than Hair Botox. If you want to bring your hair back to life and diminish the frizz but still keep your waves intact, then Hair Botox is what you need. Hair Botox smooths the curls and makes them much more manageable, but the treatment won’t completely straighten the hair. Also Hair Botox would be a treatment of choice if you want silky-looking, and frizz-free hair, but prefer not to use harsh chemicals.
Some Professional Tips –

If you go swimming, be sure to shampoo you hair with a sulfate free shampoo soon as you are done.  Also wet your hair before you start swimming so that the salt water or chlorine does not shock the hair.

 You should use sodium-sulfate-free shampoo to help maintain the treatment.

Avoid chemical treatments while the treatment is in as this will remove the Keratin or Botox treatments.  It is best to get your chemical treatment such as hair color or highlights before you get the treatment done. 
Your hair is what you eat. It is key to have a balanced diet that includes plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables. Plus, load up on ample protein (which is what keratin is and the building block of hair) with foods such as eggs, poultry and Greek yogurt as well as iron, which are found in chia seeds and leafy greens like spinach.

Good hair starts in the shower. Condition, every single day. The most important thing I stress is rinse, rinse and rinse. Leaving any residue in the hair will dry it your and make it appear dull and lifeless.  In conclusion both treatments offers great benefits.  The battle will always continue of botox vs keratin when living in Orlando.
