Protect your Locks…


With colder temperatures we’re inclined to wear shawls sweaters and hats to keep warm. Be mindful of winter wear that sheds exessively, many of the fibers can become embedded in the locks. Protect your locks by wearing satin lined caps or scarves with a low pile (yarn count). Lilla Rose hair jewelry also helps keep our locks up and safe from winter wear that has looser fibers. Stay warm.

Keep It Simple Styles…By Cathy


Keeping styles simple after retightenings are key in not compromising your locks or your fragile hairline. After you’ve had your locks retightened the last thing you want to experience is a style where you can’t smile for fear of your locks snapping at the roots.  Actually, we should be mindful of the tension on our locks at all times. Our hairline and locks are compromised when we repetitively wear styles where the locks are unduly stressed. A couple of weeks after your retighten when your locks have loosened up some, more elaborate styles can be experienced.  Bobbi Pins with smooth ends as well as hair jewelry with smooth edges complement our locked hairstyles. Part with your hair jewelry that has sharp edges and teeth that can weaken your locks over time. Keep in mind your stylist can’t read your mind when she’s styling your hair, be sure to let her know if the style is too tight or if bobby pins or hair jewelry is causing you discomfort. Be kind, gentle and loving towards your locks…K.I.S.S. by Cathy
