New year, New Look!
January 10, 2018 at 6:10 am 0
Eager to change your look for the new year? Well, there is no better time than now. As the saying goes; new year, new you!  Whether you want something casual, or slick and polished, I have a couple of ideas to help you be more creative with your hair in 2018. For starters, you can take the leap and do a big cut! The above cut is full of layers that will allow you to play around with the length and texture of your hair. To achieve this hair style at home (please visit a professional for the hair cut), use one of our best flat irons (H2PRO) to work with your layers.  If you don’t want to cut your hair, the second look can be achieved with medium length or short hair depending on your hair texture. Use a fine tooth comb and foam. To purchase the exact foam I used in the above picture, click on the shop stylesyeden.com/blog. If you want more detailed instructions on how to start your finger waves, comment below or contact me! Whatever you decide to do with your hair, be bold but keep it healthy! Happy New Year!

@powerinyourcurl take over!

  Hi there, my name is Kenya! I am also known as PowerInYourCurl on YouTube and Instagram.   I have been natural for eight years, and throughout my healthy natural hair journey I have come to learn that a fantastic salon appointment begins at home. I can remember years ago, when I was fresh to the world of healthy hair care. I would dream about going to the salon with dry, damaged hair, and then that one appointment would turn all of that around so that when I left, my hair would be healthy and full of life. After a few disappointing visits to the salon, I had to accept the fact that this simply is not true. Think of a hairstylist as an artist and your hair as a canvas. If you give an artist a canvas that is a little beat up and ripped up in some areas, even if the artist paints the most beautiful picture on the canvas, you would still be able to tell that the canvas was not in the best condition to start. Now on the other hand, if an artist paints that same picture on a canvas that is smooth, has no rips or tears and maybe it isn't perfect but it has minimal damage; this second portrait would be brighter, bolder and the overall look would be more polished than the previous portrait. It is important to take care of your canvas at home so that when you go to the salon the final portrait will turn out even better than you imagined! To help you maintain the best canvas that you can, I want to share my top five tips to get and keep healthy hair in between salon visits.

     1.Deep Condition every time you wash your hair

Think of deep conditioning as feeding your hair. You should be consistently feeding your hair nutrients and moisture in order for it to thrive and grow.

2.  Detangle your hair gently

I know it can seem like our hair is resilient to anything and can stand up to any abuse, but in actuality, our hair is very fragile. To minimize breakage when you are detangling your hair take your time and go through your tangles gently. I have found that finger detangling is best at minimizing breakage for me but you can also use a wide tooth comb and start at your ends and comb your way up to the roots.    

3. Use quality products

  Using hair products that do not contribute to your hair's health will only hinder your hair from reaching its maximum potential. I recommend using organic and natural hair products because the ingredients can feed your hair nutrients that help to keep it healthy.    

4. Trim your hair consistently

  You may not have to trim your hair yourself if you frequent hair salons often, but for me, I must trim my hair on my own from time to time because I only visit salons about once every year to year and a half. Even though I am not going to a salon, I still stick to a three-month trimming schedule so that I am getting rid of any split or dry ends throughout the year.    

5. Protect your hair

  Rubbing your hair against materials that cause friction leads to breakage and dry hair. Be sure you are always tying your hair up in a satin or silk scarf/bonnet before bed. Even when you wear hats or beanies, you want to protect your hair by having a silk or satin barrier between your hair and the head covering. Hope you find this information helpful!   Please feel free to ask all the questions we will both be happy to answer them!

Hair, IT'S ALL ABOUT THE HAIR!
IT’S ALL ABOUT THE HAIR!

     Sometimes, it's not all about big hair or long hair. The simplicity and the creativity in a hairstyle can say it all. Knowing what fits you is the key. Think about the shape of your face and what suits you best. What color works best with your complexion? Believe me, it makes all the difference; it's about taking a picture to your stylist and showing your stylist exactly what you like, so he or she can use the picture as a starting point to create a custom style just for you. It's also important to collaborate with your stylist, so he or she can provide you recommendations that will enhance the look you are seeking. All in all, trust your stylist.... we work better when we know our clients believe in us.

What are Tension Rollers?
February 22, 2017 at 10:42 am 4
I get asked this question often. Unlike traditional rollers, tension rollers are designed to provide more curl flexibility and to minimize the amount of heat required to dry your hair. The roller set includes a set of pins, which keep the rollers in place, allowing hair to dry in place from root to end. These rollers also help enhance your hair’s radiance, while giving your hair body, curls and moisture, without direct heat. After one use, you will see why these rollers are the best on the market. What makes these rollers special to me? They are actually imported from my home country of Ethiopia and I love introducing my clients and you to products created from my hometown! Are you ready to try tension rollers?
