Healthy Hair Guarantee and Maintenance
At Beauty Concepts Salon, healthy hair is a top priority. For clients who are allergic to synthetic hair (100% kanekalon), we offer human hair extensions. If synthetic hair is critical to achieving the client’s desired style, we offer pre-treated synthetic hair that has been soaked in vinegar to completely remove the hair’s alkaline base. This technique still provides clients with a high-quality, long-lasting hair or African braid style.
The length of wear for each signature hair and African braid style varies. Senegalese twists, Havana twists, kinky twists, and natural styles offer the longest wear time of six to ten weeks. We suggest that clients receiving African braid styles return for a touch-up after four to six weeks, depending on the growth rate of his or her natural hair. Hair moisturizers and sprays such as olive oil, castor oil, and coconut oil are highly recommended to keep one’s braids, hair, and scalp healthy.
