    Black Hair Care: The Truth About Brazilian Blowouts & Thinning Hair

    Thanks in advance,


    PS. I’m mixed so I have strange hair.


    There’s no such thing as strange hair. But I know what you mean! Have you heard of Design Essentials® Strengthening Therapy System? It’s a new suite of reconditioning products designed to make hair stronger, healthier, and more manageable. The Transitioning Mousse will be perfect for you! Here are the details: It’s designed to smooth naturally curly and frizzy hair types, creating easy straight-to-curly styles and relaxed-to-natural transitions. The Transitioning Mousse is ideal for you since you’re naturally curly, transitioning to natural hair, and desiring a smooth look. You’ll love that it reduces hair swelling and provides lasting smoothness and strength. It’s a professional product so you can only receive the service in a salon from a professional stylist. Check out some more great info on the system as well. I think you’ll be VERY happy with the results.




    I recently decided to get the Brazilian blowout. I’ve had it now for about 3 months. I’ve noticed that my already fine hair has become even thinner and seems to have broken off a bit. Since the blowout treatment has just about grown out, I’ve asked my stylist to revert back to pressing my hair rather than using the ceramic flat iron.  Any other suggestions to growing my hair back. I know the obvious is to reduce the amount of heat I use.

    Thank you!


    Hi Tiffanie!

    You’re definitely headed in the right direction. The use of ceramic or titanium irons are completely fine. But monitoring the frequency of heat applied, and using the best temperature setting for your hair will help increase its fullness. Since hair has natural memory, try styles that bump up the volume (rollers) or texture (twist outs, flexi-rods) to help your hair remember fullness is the way to go! Here’s to big hair.




    Hello, my name is Sharron and my 6 year old daughter has beautiful hair it is very thick and fine at the same time. Right now the way her hair is I would never be able to put it into one single ponytail. That is how thick it is. There’s two big problems that I am having. One is that she is extremely tenderheaded and the second is that her hair tangles VERY easily. I’ve tried everything. Please help.

    Thank you in advance.

    Hello Sharron!

    Hair care can create a very special bond between a mom and daughter. The important thing to remember is to be gentle and consistent. When shampooing and conditioning, choose products that will infuse moisture and detangle. Try Design Essentials Moisture Retention Conditioning Shampoo and Express Instant Moisturizing Conditioner. Also, use a wide tooth comb which works best for detangling thick hair. Section the hair, and then detangle in even smaller sections, start at the ends, working your way up to the roots. As far as styling, try individual twists or braids which are great for little girls and super cute too! But, if you’re up for styling her hair daily, then use Design Essentials Natural Daily Moisturizing Lotion to soften and detangle. It’s great for daily moisture and works wonders on hair that may tangle during nighttime sleep. Hope this helps!
