How To Wash Your Virgin Hair Extensions

Feb 19, 2015 1

You should always co-wash condition your virgin hair extensions prior to installing. DO NOT use shampoo. Use conditioner only.

Shampoos are only meant to clean the hair. It does not condition or soften the hair. It is only meant to clean the hair by removing dirt and oil build up from the scalp so that hair follicles can grow healthy. The excessive use of shampoo can actually cause your hair to dry, harden and frizz up which will lead to breakage and shedding. Conditioner’s (co-wash) work best because it hydrates and moisturizes the hair. It will also give your hair more definition and volume.

  • Wet the hair first.                   

  • Apply a generous amount of conditioner.                                 

  • Use a wide tooth comb to distribute conditioner evenly through the hair. Always comb from the bottom to the top. (Allow the conditioner to sit in your hair for 15- 30 minutes)

  • Rinse using cool water.

  • After washing, pat your hair dry with a towel.

  • Allow your hair to air dry (do not roll or rub hair into the towel that will cause your hair to frizz).

 

Follow These Steps When Washing With Shampoo & Conditioner:

*Shampoo tends to make the hair dry and that can lead to tangling and shedding. Conditioning the hair as the first step is to prevent that. Conditioning the hair again after you use shampoo is to retain a good moisture back into the hair*

*Remember that maintaining your virgin hair extensions look and texture all has to do with your own personal maintenance and how the hair is cared for and treated before, during, and after installation*

Other Tips:

*Do not scrounge up the hair in your hands while washing. This is considered as rough treatment*

*Condition your hair 2- 3 times a week or has you see fit*

*Shampoo at least once every 2-3 weeks*

Virgin Hair Maintenance Tips

Jan 28, 2015 0

Get the full benefits of your virgin hair

In order to get the full benefits of your virgin hair maintenance, & care is an important part of maintaining longevity and shine. Keeping your hair extensions in tip top shape can be very tricky! The key to maintaining your investment starts from the day of receiving your hair/bundles.

• Virgin Hair should be treated as your own hair and cleansed regularly to maintain the health and shine of the hair.

• Once you receive your hair extensions always inspect the hair before installing it. Leave the bundles intact. If there are any issues with the hair you should notice it at this time.

• Always co-wash the hair before you have it installed. This is highly recommended for all 100% virgin hair. This should be done in order to transform the hair from it’s steam-processed state to it’s natural state.

• Do not cut your wefts/tracks. This causes the thread to unravel and create shedding and matting issues. If you must cut your tracks seal the wefts with weft sealer.

• To keep your hair and extensions properly moisturized. You should purchase a good natural oil such as argan oil, to prevent the hair from drying out and also give your hair a nice and healthy glow without weighing your hair down.

• A wide tooth comb and a paddle brush are the best tools to use when detangling your hair. It’s always best to detangle your hair before you wash and/or curl it. Be sure to section your hair off when brushing and detangling.

• Co-washing will add more moisture to your hair. You can co-wash your hair as often as you like. Some shampoos will strip the hair of all it’s moisture and the hair will become dry and tangled. Instead of always shampooing and conditioning, only condition (co-wash) your hair for 15- 30 minutes. The longer you deep condition your hair the softer and luxurious it becomes. Allow your hair to air dry for the best results!

• To avoid frizz never rub your hair with a towel, which can make frizz worse. Instead you should pat your hair dry.

• When coloring your hair extensions, please consult with a licensed professional before any coloring. Some hair colors must be achieved in steps, you may fry your hair extensions if not done properly! Any type of chemical altering strips the cuticle of the hair (at this point your virgin hair is no longer considered virgin hair).

• Heat is your hair biggest enemy. The more you use hot styling tools the shorter the life span of your hair. Use heat in moderation. High temperatures can damage the hair, including permanently altering the hair texture. Always use heat protectant! I highly recommend using flexi rods, perm rollers & steam rollers for curling your hair. Not only will your curls last longer but your hair won’t have any heat damage.

• It is important to manage your hair before you go to bed. Tie your hair up at night with a silk/satin scarf or a silk/satin bonnet. For wavy/curly textures I recommend putting 3-5 large twist or braids in your hair then placing it under a scarf or bonnet. For Straight textures I recommend wrapping your hair then placing it under a silk/satin scarf. Following this nightly routine will make your extensions last longer, look better, and prevent tangling which leads to excessive shedding.

The Wonders of Warm Water

Jan 22, 2015 0

Forget Energy Drinks.  Leave the Fad Diets in the dust.  The greatest wonder to our body is just a spigot away!  Water is your body’s natural fuel. Most of us start our mornings with a fresh, hot cup of coffee or tea to warm our bodies after getting out of bed. When we drink water, we tend to prefer it cold, but according to Ayurvedic medicine, we have it all wrong. Regularly drinking very warm water, especially in the morning, can heal our bodies, providing digestive power and reducing metabolic waste that could have built up in our immune system.

While drinking warm water may not suit your taste buds, it may be beneficial to put the caffeine and tea aside for your health’s sake. Our Editor, Connie Alsobrook, gives us the following reasons why:

1. Cleanses Digestion
A very warm cup of water in the morning can help cleanse your body by flushing out toxins. Water and other liquids help break down the food in your stomach and keep the digestive system on track. Warm water will help break down these foods even faster, making them easier for you to digest. Drinking cold water during or after a meal can actually harden the oil in consumed foods and therefore create a fat deposit in the intestine. Adding ice to processed cold water will strip it of natural-containing minerals as these minerals are essential to keeping the digestive tract healthy. Luckily, you can replace a glass of cold water with a warm one to aid digestion, especially after eating a meal.

2. Aids Constipation
At one point or another, many of us are plagued by this common stomach problem where we have little to no bowel movement. The strain felt during elimination, accompanied by bloating, is brought on by a lack of water in the body. Drinking very warm water in the morning on an empty stomach can help improve bowel movements and aid constipation while breaking down foods as they smoothly pass through the intestines. Stimulating the bowels will help return your body back to normal functioning.

3. Alleviates Pain
Warm water, considered to be nature’s most powerful home remedy, can help alleviate pain from menstruation to headaches. The heat from warm water is known to have a calming and soothing effect on the abdominal muscles, which can help provide instant relief for cramps and muscle spasms. According to Healthline.com, warm or hot water is usually better for cramps, as hot liquids increase blood flow to the skin and help relax the cramped muscles.

4. Sheds Those Extra Pounds
If you’re on a diet, chances are you’ve heard drinking a glass of warm water first thing in the morning can help with weight loss. Warm water increases body temperature, which therefore increases the metabolic rate. An increase in metabolic rate allows the body to burn more calories throughout the rate. It can also help the gastrointestinal tract and kidneys to function even better.

Physicians recommend drinking warm water in the morning, usually, with a polyphenol-rich lemon immersion, or with a tea shown to decrease free radical activity in the body. Drinking a glass of warm water and a lemon will help break down the adipose tissue, or body fat, in your body, and also control food craving due to lemon’s pectin fiber.

5. Improves Blood Circulation
The fat deposits in the body are eliminated along with accumulating deposits in the nervous system when you drink a glass of warm water. This flushes out the toxins that are circulating throughout the body and then enhances blood circulation. Making sure the muscles are relaxed will eliminate poor circulation and blood flow.

6. Prevents Premature Aging
Premature aging is a woman’s worst nightmare, but luckily, this can be prevented by drinking warm water. The presence of toxins in the body can lead to aging faster, but warm water can help cleanse the body from those toxins, while repairing skin cells to increase elasticity.

So, next time, ask for a glass of water with lemon… HOLD THE ICE, PLEASE!

5 Tips To Keep Your Car Clean and Organized

Dec 10, 2014 0

By Dorsey Mobile Detailing

1. Throw Trash Away:   Keep a trash bag in your car or recycle a plastic cereal box or soap  dish container to make a trash can just for the car.

2. Whatever goes into the car goes out. We seem to have an overabundance of plastic cups, sweaters, and books. Make sure your kids get their stuff out of the car when they get out.

3. Organize what needs to stay in the car. I have a large utility tote from 31 Gifts that I keep in the back of my car. I keep my jumper cables, emergency kit, and first aid kit in there. It keeps the back of my Jeep clutter free and organized.

4. .Use a bit of baking soda to deodorize your carpets. Sprinkle a bit of baking soda on your carpets and seats to eliminate odors. I try to vacuum at least once a month. Before I vacuum, I use a spoon and a box of baking soda to keep my car from smelling like a garbage bin.

5. Keep a box of baby wipes in your car for cleaning. You can wipe down your interior and widows with baby wipes. This is an easy task you can do in very little time, maybe while you’re waiting in the school pick-up line? They also come in handy for spills.


At Dorsey Mobile Detailing, we know you take pride in the appearance of your vehicle and that’s why we use only the finest products available to give your vehicle a brilliant shine.

“What is the difference between you guys and the car wash down the street?”
We are a completely mobile service. You don’t have to spend any time driving and waiting in line. We do everything by hand, which is the best way for your paint. At the wash down the way they run your car through a machine to wash and dry it as quickly as possible. There is no attention to detail.
We work on one vehicle at a time and we take our time. Their goal is quantity, ours is quality. You will see the difference in the details. We take pride in our work and guarantee our results. If you aren’t satisfied, we will make it right!

Great Tips for Time Management

Oct 6, 2014 0

time management

Time management is hard!  I know, I still have to make a conscious decision everyday to be sure I am using my time wisely. First thing in the morning is not bad.  I spend the first couple of hours reading my bible and in prayer.  But afterwards, when I should be working, my mind and body wants to sit in front of the television and watch I Love Lucy.

This wouldn’t be problem except that my most productive hours are in the morning.   So I can’t waste time watching television, surfing the internet, or checking emails.  I know that after 2pm my body and mind start winding down and nothing is getting done.  This may not be your particular situation.  You may be at your best in the afternoon.  Or maybe you want and are trying to carve out time for yourself and/or your family.  Whatever the particular situation, we know we need to take control of our time.  Below are some tips to help you manage time stealers:

1) Turn off the television.  With TiVo, internet, etc.,  there is no excuse for not being able to watch your favorite television shows at a later time.  You may have to re-train your body and emotions if they are used to watching television at a certain time during the day.  Yes, there may be withdrawal but you will overcome.

2) Prioritize.  Block off time in your day to do what is most important.  Make this uninterrupted time.  Turn off the phone.  If necessary, let family and friends know that this time is for your family, when you are working, or your quiet time.

3) Limit your cell phone and computer use.  These are the true time stealers.  I know that there are emails and alerts you must check, but if you are checking these several times within the hour, that is too much of your time that you could be using for more important things.  Prioritize your calls and check you emails twice a day, preferably around lunch and after your workday.

Time is the one thing we cannot get back. Remember:Time = life; therefore, waste your time and waste of your life, or master your time and master your life.” ~Alan Lakein.
