Healthy Head Of Hair

Triple H

Did you know that hair is a indicator of general good health.  Healthy hair comes from a healthy body and is mirrored from a persons physical and emotional welfare.  Nourishment comes from the food we eat.  The scalp and hair are feed through the bloodstream so it is important that the blood flow is not restricted.  Scalp massages help circulate blood flow.

Alot of people  are scared of transitioning because they feel like the big chop is the only way, but​ it is not.  The Big Chop is a method for someone that wants an instant transition.  The Big Chop is not for everyone.  ​Going natural can be hassel-free if you are prepared, patient, and committed.  With the Big Chop styles are limited to how big the chop really is because some woman let their hair grow out past a certain length before they decided to cut.

Transitioning to natural without the Big Chop is for someone that does not want loose their length and  would rather trim on a regular basis. This method is not instant and takes time.  Hair grows approximately 1/2 inch per month so depending on the length of the relaxed hair this process can be very timely. One way to think about it is if you recieve a trim on a regular basis and take off a 1/2 inch every 4 to 6 weeks, the length of your hair would stay the same.
No Big Chop needed.

Here at Pre'Vail we want to help with your transition, no matter which method you choose. We are here to answer questions and teach you how to maintain your style at home.  We are here to provide service to you so if at any time you are not satisfied with a service let us know, your statisfaction is guaranteed!

Understanding the Transition

Transitioning from straight to shrinkage seems to be the last thing on a person’s mind when making the decision to go NATURAL!  Being strong and determined for the first 3 months is very, very important. 

Once the new growth starts to get about an inch long a lot of women have second thoughts and start to wonder if they made the right decision.  At this point you must understand that you are dealing with two different textures and should put more thought into your daily styling. Most women feel like they should straighten out the new growth to get it to blend but the best thing to do is to change the texture of the straight.  This prevents the heat damage you'll get when trying to tame the shrinkage!
​Finding styles in the early stage of transitioning can also be difficult. If you decide not to do the "Big Chop" and just trim your hair as it grows don't let styling be a struggle. Most clients like "Combo Styles" just because its 95% maintenance free and lasts up to 3 weeks. This style is created by using two or more techniques below and works for those who are transitioning and for those who have nothing but shrinkage.

There are many different ways to keep your natural hair healthy, but the most important one comes from patience and commitment.  Without those two you will find it very hard to maintain and keep natural hair.​​

Below are a few things to keep in mind:

-What you put inside you is what you are going to get on the outside. So drink lots of water to flush out toxins.

-Don't pack your hair with heavy products.

-Really get to know your texture type and what works for you.

-If you're going to wash between visits, make sure you are using natural shampoos that are sulfate and paraben free. It is recommended to use the same products at home that are used in salon.

-Let your hair air dry so that it can retain as much moisture as possible.

-Every 6 to 8 weeks you should check for split ends and get a conditioning hydration. It will help repair damage and keep hair healthy.

-Shampooing with very warm water opens up the cortex layer of the hair and rinsing conditioner with cold water locks moisture into the cuticle layer.
No two people have the same hair and many times one person may have different textures but no matter what you have you should be able to manage you hair and get the results you want.
