Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    Anyone know if it's possible for an asian guy to get the waves hair design?
    My friend is asian and he says he wants to get waves in his hair. You know that hair design that african americans have? Yeah well my friend wants it, so is it possible or not?

    • ANSWER:
      Here's an old hair trick - don't know if it'll simulate the pattern you're looking for but try this: grease up, or "dippity-doo" the hair, or use some type of setting lotion. Then clip rows of bobby-pins, indenting the hair, blow dry.

      I used this type of trick when younger to try to tame or guide my unruly hair.

      I've been going to a Paul Mitchell Hair Academy for over a year now to get my hair done, and it always turns out great for me.

  14. QUESTION:
    Is there a hair straightener design for kids?
    I want to straighten my hair but my mom's afraid the hair straightener would hurt my hair. I'm looking for a hair straightener designed especially for kids.
    Or maybe just wavy and I hate to admit it poofy hair. It's straight to my hair but then it poofs a little.

    • ANSWER:
      There is no specific "kids" straightener that I know of. All straighteners are practically the same. If you buy a high quality Conair Ceramic one you should be fine. Straighteners only damage your hair if you don't know what you're doing and you let your hair dry out and burn. Use a good hair moisturizer and make sure to always use conditioner. Wash you hair every other day NOT every day and do not straighten your hair every day, 2XS a week is pretty good. Id suggest getting a good high quality round brush and just blowing your hair out using a gel. If you do it in sections its just as good as straightening and it doesn't dry it out as much.

  15. QUESTION:
    What should the cover of my hair design/ makeup portfolio look like?
    I'm making a portfolio of my makeup and hairstyle work and I can't figure out what to put on the cover. I need this to look modern and professional to show to potential clients and employers.

    • ANSWER:
      Sometimes less is more - if the cover is black - a nice black, not a binder, keep it as such - ditto if it is chrome or silver. If there is a window on the cover - a small one like photo albums have, then use a simple phrase like 'it' or 'perfect' or something like that.

  33. QUESTION:
    Which school is better for Hair Design: Vidal Sassoon or Paul Mitchell?
    I'm trying to decide which school I should attend.

    • ANSWER:
      They are both very good schools. But the first comment was right, it will depend from school to school. I would go for a tour, ask people who go there what they think, and go with what you feel is right.

      I feel like going to a "name school" does give you an edge when you first some out of it though. If you are tying to get into a top salon sometimes it helps to have that name behind you, especially if they are the same brand.

      Letting you know my own bias, I would lean toward Vidal. My friend went there and it seems like she got a really really good education. I went to Aveda and I loved it, but I do wish there was a Vidal in my area. Their name is a little more universal ... (like if you go into any salon that name gets respect, but a paul mitchell school is good, but only really good at a paul mitchell salon).

      But if PM feels like a better fit. By all means go there! Its all about what feels right.

I want something easy enough for a hairdresser to copy, would the actual "ben10" text look stupid? Its a charity day in school and they have to have weird/funky hair which is why i want to allow him to have it, I was thinkng about spraying it with green hair colour spray too, Thanks for any help.

      Why don't you just have his hair grow out, and then you could give him the hair cut that Ben has? It's fairly normal...not like shaving a design in his hair(which I personally think would look silly). If he says that it's not normal enough you could tell him that's the hair style that Ben 10 has!

      Once a week before I shower I soak my hair in jasmine flower oil for hair. (olive oil from the food shop will work to ;P) I rub an amount in my hands to warm it up and run it through my dry hair. keep repeating this until your hair is all greased up and and all the strands have oil in it.wrap your hair in a towel and leave it for 20 mins to an hour depending on how long you want to leave it in.

      Shower and rinse all the oil out of you hair, shampoo and condition as normal, preferably with a moisturising brand of shampoo and conditioner.

      After you come out the shower, use "Frizz Ease" by John Frida hair serum in your wet hair. This stuff is amazing and I will swear by it! It leaves hair soft to the touch and frizz free!

      Next towel dry your hair quite vigorously and run your fingers through your hair, DO NOT BRUSH OR COMB! leave your hair to air dry as is and watch the amazing result when your hair dries!

      It should have masses of volume, smell nice and look so healthy! if it looks a bit to wild just run your fingers through it or use a WIDE toothed comb. Brushing will just break up the curls and make you look like a frizzy mop end XD

      Still, I hope this helps :D

  7. QUESTION:
    what shampoo make my hair fade? SA only?
    I've dyed my naturally light blonde hair quite a dark brown which is too dark for my colouring. it's slowly fading, and everytime i redye it for the regrowth i use a shade lighter. I was wondering if there's any shampoo that will make it fade more quickly? what about Crystal Summers (you spray it into hair and blow dry it and it makes it blonde, i think) of something like that? or will it turn my hair orange? I'm not overly stressed out about it, just interested in trying to quicken the process.
    I just noticed that I forgot WILL out of my question- oops! i promise i can speak properly :)

    • ANSWER:
      wash your hair several times in clothes washing detergent. The powdery type. Fantastic stuff really strips it out. Or try coke, i've heard this strips really well too. Don't use that Crystal thing that you said! It will make your hair orange like an orangatang! Best of luck

    How do I get my dark brown dyed hair lighter with Lemon juice?
    My hair was dyed very dark dark dark brown. Just like this ( focus on bottom hair color not where the sunlight shined. ) http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1620026980. it was darker than i expected and i wanted to dye it a bit lighter. not too light but just like still dark brown. Like in this link ( very first picture )

    http://www.google.com/imgres?q=dark+brown+hair&hl=en&sa=X&biw=1280&bih=709&tbm=isch&prmd=imvns&tbnid=fjoZwtbu7yFfNM:&imgrefurl=http://www.haircolorideas2012.net/dark-brown-hair-color/&docid=Uq4t4iuTmc7MEM&w=400&h=300&ei=eFKOTrquD4Khtwf02qyIDA&zoom=1&iact=hc&vpx=192&vpy=153&dur=197&hovh=146&hovw=196&tx=106&ty=78&page=2&tbnh=138&tbnw=186&start=21&ndsp=23&ved=1t:429,r:0,s:21

    So how long do i leave the lemon juice in my hair to make it just that color and how do i make it evenly spread so it wouldn't look like i just did 1 part and the other one dark...? Don't i need the sun? I need this by tomorrow >< and the sun isn't out right now so... is there still a way?
    PLEASE PLEASE HEEELP. So Desperateeee! Need people with expirience or who know! (:

    • ANSWER:
      I put lemon juice in my hair, and it looks beautifully highlighted when I follow these steps:
      1. Squeeze lemon juice into a cup
      2. Put your three middle fingers (pointer, middle, and ring finger) into the cup, put lemon juice up until your first knuckle, and stroke your fingers through your hair with a small amount of pressure.
      3. Spread it through the back, front, a little underneath, and don't forget to stroke it ALL THE WAY THROUGH!!
      4. Leave it in all until you shower or wash it out. Make sure by the end of the day you wash it out, but as long as you don't sleep with it in you can leave it in as long as you want.
      5. Put it in everyday if you want - results will start showing as soon as you are in the sun! (Make sure you get as much sun time as you can!)
      Hope this helped!!! :)

    • ANSWER:
      If you have naturally curly/wavy hair you could:
      -wash it,brush it and let it dry on its own, but whilst it's drying, pin it so that it all goes over one of your shoulders.

      If that's not what you want, you could:
      -straighten and pin your bangs back:
      *tease them a bit to get them to hold.
      -braid your bangs to the side and put your hair into a bun or ponytail.
      -curl or straighten your hair
      -scrunch your hair:
      *before going to bed take a shower
      *pull hair up in a high bun on the top of head.
      *in the morning take hair out and it will be curly. You may want to add some mousse or gel.
      -braid into low pigtails.

    How do i get my hair more wavy?
    i used to straighten my hair everyday. but i've stopped and now my hair isn't wavy at all! when it dries by itself it's just poofy and frizzy and sort of straight. i really want my hair to look more like this:http://images.google.com/images?gbv=2&ndsp=20&hl=en&q=wavy+hair&start=80&sa=N

    • ANSWER:
      1. Towel-dry freshly washed hair and apply a volumizing mousse.
      2. Comb through to make sure the mousse is evenly distributed.
      3. With your palms, gently push hair into waves, then clip waves into place.This helps achieve a controlled wave with a finished, not frizzy, look.
      4. Blow-dry with a diffuser attachment. When hair is dry, remove clips and separate waves with your fingers.
      5. Add extra gleam by smoothing two or three drops of shine serum over tresses.
      6. Do not brush hair after styling, or you'll wreck your waves.

    Thank you for your time and i appreciate your ideas.

    • ANSWER:
      I am a hairdresser, & I agree with your hairdresser. However if you still want it, have her do it. I would suggest buying temporary extensions (@ sally beauty they can be affordable ) first, this way its not permanent, bc in the event that you color it & don't like it, you're stuck bc black does NOT come out, even when using a demi permanent color. When I was 17 I really wanted a blonde bang, and my hair was a dark red & all hairdressers told me it wouldn't work for various reasons, but I finally just had someone do it & I loved it, im now 24 and I still have the blonde bang :)

    • ANSWER:
      If you're serious about getting this colour then be prepared to have dry, broken hair.

      You'll need to bleach, possibly more than once. When I did it to part of my hair, my hair's a dark/medium brown and I had to bleach it three times. If you've never dyed your hair before you might only have to bleach it once, but if you've dyed it chances are it'll go a sort of orangey-yellow colour before you bleach it again.

      Then you might need to tone it. Again, if you've never dyed your hair before or your hair's quite light anyway you might not need to, but toner helps get rid of yellow tones in your hair to make it white blonde. I recommend Directions toner (it's a lilac colour so DON'T confuse it with the lilac hair dye!!)

      Then to dye it, you won't have to dilute it with conditioner, I don't think that would work. You can get dyes that colour anyway, Directions and Crazy Colour are the two I recommend. Bare in mind that these dyes are semi permanent anyway (you can't get a permanent pink hair dye outside of a salon, not here at least) so even if it's not as light as you wanted it to be it WILL fade in a few days!

      Just make sure you definitely want to do it and can afford to keep it up before you do it!

      Hope this helps, good luck!

    EDIT: Sorry, I mean I have jet black straight hair that comes to my WAIST!

    • ANSWER:
      In this pic she's curled it. :) here's how :
      1. After you wash your hair, apply the spray for volume at the root of the hair, and then massage the area gently. If your hair is thick apply a little balsam and massage again gently. Very slowly, comb your hair (with a comb or brush) because the products that you have previously applied must be distributed evenly on the surface of the scalp.

      2. Finally, use a hair dryer, alternating the warm air with the cold one.

      3. Divide your hair into three sections, catching each section with a hairpin. Depending on your preferences, choose the thickness of the strands (if you choose thick strands, you will only be able to make a few curls).

      4. After that, take the strand of the hair and twist it around the curling iron, then after you twisted it around the iron catch the strand with pliers from the endowment of the iron. The estimated time to keep the strand caught in the curling iron is about 30 seconds (maximum), but that depends on several factors: the type of the hair and the temperature of the iron.

      5. Do not comb your curls! If you want them to look more dense, use your fingers to loose them. After curling each strand, apply a fixative spray to give strength for the curls shape. Do not exaggerate with the hairspray if you do not want your hair to become very rigid. For a greater shine, apply a serum for shining after the curling process has finished .

      Be careful with the curling iron because it can burn your hair if it is to hot or if you keep it too much on the strands. Be careful however when using the curling iron to not touch your face, ears, neck or other body parts that are in the operating range of the iron. The last thing you need is a scar on your face or somewhere else.
      Hope I helped :)

    • ANSWER:
      okay you have a couple options. if your hair is naturally that color: you have to bleach it. dont use a bleach from the supermarket or cvs or any home kit. you absolutely have to go to a professional hair stylist. at-home box bleah is a really high volume (like 40 volume) and hair stylists only use about 20 volume because its better for your hair. if you use the at home bleach, your hair will turn a "candy corn" color as my stylist calls it. its white near the roots (your newest growth) , yellow at the middle of your hair, and orange at the tips. and tust me this looks horrible. once you dye over it, your hair will be weird colors. plus, if you try to bleach over it again to fix the "candy corn" look, your hair could be seriously damaged or fall out.

      OR. if your hair is not naturally that color and you dyed it brown, buy an undye kit from a cvs or walgreens or something. theyre meant to lighten dyed hair to the color of your natural hair. then you can either bleach it at your salon for less time (less harmful than bleaching it from black), or you can dye caramel over your natural color if its light enough to do that.

    My hair is shoulder length and the curls are a little less loose then tight but when i put gel in it they would be considered tight

    • ANSWER:
      If you have lighter skin you might not want to go for a golden brown (believe me), it will make your skin look bland and the yellow tint look sickly. The red will be pretty, so will the bronze, as long as you don't put in, too much. I like the Vanessa Hudgens hair. How long is your hair? Do you have tight or loose curls?

    How long does it take a short haired chihuahua to grow its hair?
    my short hair chihuahua got her hair stuck in some really sticky sap and we tried bathing her 3 times but the sa would not come out. Finally we had to cut the hair. How long will it take to grow back?

    • ANSWER:
      Was the hair shaved to the skin? If not, it will not be "triggered" to grow again. It could be up to 3 months for the full coat to come back; otherwise count on a month or two.

    How can a man get styled hair without it being shiny and crunchy?
    Ive been using gel for a few years now and I have never really liked my hair. If I dont put anything in my hair it poofs and frizzes up, and when I put gel in my hair it makes it shiny, crunchy, and see-through which is almost as bad as the poof. Is there some special thing to do to get hair like the people in these photos?

    • ANSWER:
      Her hair isn't thinner, it just looks thinner because she doesn't have a lot of hair. All of her hair is on her layers. If you want your hair to look like that you might want to get shorter layers to get more volume at the top. Then, if it isn't "thin enough" at the ends, then get thinning shears (or even a razor, but be careful) to make it even thinner. Good luck.

    How do I keep my hair straight?
    I'm going to two concerts in San Antonio and Houston in August. Which means incredible amounts of humidity. And for the SA show, I'm in the pit. I have naturally wavy hair, and need it to stay as STRAIGHT as humanly possible all night. Even with all the humidity and sweat from the pit. Seriously, I need some really heavy duty advice, because my hair does NOT stay straight if it's humid outside. Please PLEASE help me! Thanks so much!

    • ANSWER:
      Use this mousse from Herbal Essenses for straight hair, and then they also have a spray for stick straight hair. After you wash your hair, towel dry it and use the mousse. Then blow dry your hair straight using a brush and put the hair dryer heat on cooler to keep your hair from getting frizzy. Spray on the straight hair spray lightly and then straighten your hair with a really good flat iron. Then spray a little more on. It works really well. The Herbal Essences mousse and spray for straight hair are in a pink bottle with a green lid, I don't know the exact name.

    How much and what level creme peroxide shud i use

    • ANSWER:
      If your lightening your hair from a dark colour i would highly recommend going to a salon as doing it at home could cause a lot of damage. when lightening the hair it causes a lot of damage and if you dont do it properly you could end up making it dry and frizzy. However if your going to do it anyway i might as well give you the correct info.

      6% (20 vol) lightens the hair 1 level
      9% (30 vol) lightens the hair 2 -3 levels
      12% (40 vol) lightens the hair 4 levels

      hair colours

      1 black
      2 nearly black
      3 dark brown
      4 darkish brown
      5 brown <- you would get bronzy red at this)
      6 light brown
      7 dark blonde
      8 blonde
      9 light blonde

      so if your hair is (3 dark brown) and you want to lighten your hair to bronzy red you will need to get to about (5 brown) so you would need to use 9% to lighten your hair 2 levels.

      Hope you understand :)

I know it sounds a little overboard but I've never been am and unawre of the number of blonde travellers over there and the impact it has on my experience.

    Have you had troubles as a blonde in SA??

    • ANSWER:
      it is not a bad idea, of course they will still know you are foreign, but when you are blonde, they see you from blocks away and know that you are foreign. I have not traveled in SA, but in Central A, and rural southern Mex (and a number of other places in the world) and my blonde hair always made me stand out and I think caused some of the problems I had. (For example trucks passing me and my friend on the road and then pulling over and waiting for us to catch up and then harrassing us). The blonde hair is a red flag. But I didn't notice as much of an issue in bigger cities or anywhere touristy. Also, I was once encircled by curious villagers, all touching my hair. That was weird.

  46. QUESTION:
    Will my hair and the hair extensions turn out the same color?
    I just ordered some clip in hair extensions in a light brown. My hair is dark ish brown right now. and I want to dye my hair and hair extensions a red brown, which would be lighter than MY hair color right now, but darker than my hair extensions. The reason I got light hair extensions is because I know it's easier to dye extensions darker than lighter.

    will the hair and hair extensions end up turning the same color? I'm going to a salon, but I don't want it to take many dyes because more than one dye can ruin my extensions and I paid a lot for them..

    • ANSWER:
      The next time you are at a salon or any hair cutting place, you can ask them to thin it out a bit. That will take out a lot of the bulk and make it easier for you to style it that way. But remember that if you have naturally thick hair it will likely grow back pretty fast so you can also ask the stylist some advice on how often you should thin your hair and any other advice too.
      Good Luck

  50. QUESTION:
    How in the heck did Himesh fit all that hair in that red cap of his back in the day?
    Seriously..I was watching Sa Ra Ga Ma Pa..and this dude has like a helmet mop head of hair! How did my man fit all of that hair into his red trademark cap back in the day? What did he have...like an XXXXXXXXL hat size or something?

    • ANSWER:
      If you observe his hair style, that is what he originally had and the new cap look, there is not much of a difference. I mean he has just grown his hair length. There were rumours about him suffering from hair loss due to which he started wearing a cap. There were also talks about his undergoing some treatment for the same. So prolly the treatment worked and he now has no need to use the cap!

      But the newspapers for quite a long time wrote articles about this. So this, i guess is the cap mystery of HR!

      Cheers!

Black Hair Styles Cuts

5 Steps to a Great Faux Hawk Haircut
Everyone knows about the Mohawk look; clean shaven on the sides, and a long streak of hair right in the middle. It is a style favored by a lot of celebrities, from movie stars to athletes and of course the fashionable punk rocker. However, if you want to be fashionable without looking like a copycat, go for the Faux Hawk look.

This hairstyle is coming into vogue among young people and professionals, who always want to be in on the latest trends but at the same time maintaining their individuality. The great thing about the Faux Hawk hairstyle is that you do not need to spend your precious dollars on a barber; you can easily do it yourself alone, or with a friend.

These are the things you will need to get that Faux Hawk cut:

First are some hair clippers, and scissors. Any size will do, just pick those you are comfortable with. Next get yourself some rubber or elastic bands, and a couple of mirrors. Finally, you need some hair gel, or styling mousses to set your hair correctly.
First step: Determine just how thick or wide you want the Faux Hawk to be. There are several ways you can do this, but the best method is to just measure the area between your irises.

Second step: Now you have to thoroughly wash your hair. Depending on its condition, you may have to do this a few times as you really will get a better result with squeaky clean hair. Dry it, and use a comb to divide it into three areas. Take the elastic bands and apply them on the middle section of your hair. Depending on how thick you cut your hair, you might need several.

Third step: Most of those that get the Faux Hawk haircut do it with short hair, so trim it a little bit first. If your hair is short, proceed to the next step.

Fourth step: Use the clippers to shave off the sides. Be careful not to remove everything, though; this is where the mirrors or having someone beside you will come in handy. Again using a mirror, trim a little off the sides and the middle, but leave enough to make sure the center part is longer.

Fifth step: You are almost done. Take off the rubber bands that you put in to keep the middle hair in place. Now take the hair styling mousse or gel and apply it. The directions for each gel or cream will differ, so follow the directions. Some will want you to use your hands to style the hair, while others will recommend a comb. Just make sure you apply them as instructed.

When you have applied the styling material, give it some time to dry and settle in.

That's it; you have the Faux Mohawk look, and you did not have to spend any dollars or cents to get it.

One final word about this hairstyle: if you still want to keep your long hair, you can have the Faux Hawk and use a ponytail. This hairstyle is called a pony hawk, and is used by a growing number of people too.

  13. QUESTION:
    what are some nice natural hair styles for black teens??? my hair is i little above shoulder lenght?
    and is strait.but when i wash it it gets really curly. is there any way i can keep those curls after my wash? the hair in the front of my head is shorter then the back. my hair color is black and it's pretty shiny. i don't want to cut my hair i want it to grow. but i mainly want quick natural hairstyles if u don't have any i would love to see braided styles weave etc.

    thnx

    • ANSWER:
      well when it's still wet and curly,add gel to your hair like the puerto ricans do[ I'm not trying to be racist but the are like the only ones who use the gel nicely] let it hair dry and no towel blotting it dry. use the clear gel it works really well. the only downfall is that you can rap your hair that night because then u loose the curls and if you don't want it to look like crap the next day you have to wash it which sounds ok but for us black girls we can't be washing our hair everyday lol so yea hope it works out.it worked for me so yea good luck! :D

  17. QUESTION:
    What are some different long hair styles for teenagers?
    I'm sick of people telling me to get more creative with my hair cause I don't straighten it, it's naturally wavey and is long too falling a good 2-3 inches below my shoulders. Everyone in my school dyes their black or multicolored and cuts it scene style or short and scene.. I'm not doing either and basically I grew out my bangs.. I wanna know some kinda different not to usual style to either cut my hair (I need a hair cut bad) or style it.. Any will do :)

    • ANSWER:
      Almost no one in my school is scene, you lucky duck! haha
      If you don't want to cut your bangs back up just get a ton of layers :] ask the hairdresser to use a razor[not the leg kind or the kind used to shave someones head xD] and shear them off so they won't be straight line layers perfectly situated in your hair. Since your hair is wavy they would look off anyways, and layers will really stand out in your hair since it's wavy!!
      Good luck!

    what kind of hair styles could a black guy with short hair get?
    im black and i have pretty long hair im thinking about cutting if i cut what do you think would look good in my hair an what are some styles?

    • ANSWER:
      There are plenty of things a guy, black or white, can do with short hair. Styling gel can create any type of look if used well. The spikey look would look good on you, sleek and sharp. Or you can slick it back, too.

      If you really want a good opinion, then go see a hairstylist, a unisex hairdresser, and they can advise you on what might suit you best.

      Good luck.

He doesn't want to wear dreads, but I was wondering what else is out there for black men in hair care.

    Thanks guys!

Black Hair And Braids

Ways That Girls Braid Their Hair
Hair braiding is a way to style hair you can do at home, but it does involve a learning process. Once you know how to braid hair, you can transform your own or someone else's hair into a cute new style in just a few minutes. Here are some easy instructions on how to braid hair.

To braid another person's hair or do the front of your own head

The hair should be clean and dry. If it is wavy or curly, you may want to blow dry it straight first to make the braid more even. Add some styling gel to smooth any flyaways and make the hair more manageable. Comb the hair to remove tangles.

Divide the hair into three even sections. Place the left section between your left index finger and thumb, let the middle section hang free and place the right section between your right index finger and thumb.

Hold the middle section with your right middle finger and pull it so it passes behind the right section. Extend your right thumb and index finger so the right portion of hair becomes the new middle section.

Using the left middle finger, pull the middle section behind the left section. Extend or straighten the left index finger and thumb to move the left section into the middle.

Shift the portion of hair hooked in the right middle finger so it sits between the right index finger and thumb. Repeat the process. Then shift the portion of the hair hooked in the left middle finger so it sits between the left index finger and thumb.

Continue until the braid is the desired length. For a tighter, more compact braid, pull the middle section into a horizontal line as you move it to the right or left. If you prefer a loose, elongated braid, simply shift the middle section to the right or left, letting it remain in a vertical line.
When the braid is done, secure the end of the hair with a covered rubber band. Add a bow or barrette as desired.

Be sure to pull the portions of hair as evenly as possible so the tension remains consistent. If the tension is tighter on one side, your braid will twist to one side instead of lying flat. Avoid pulling too hard, as this may lead to hair damage.
Braiding the back of your own hair

Comb your hair before you begin and remove any tangles. Divide the hair into three even sections. Some people have found that if you braid your hair when it's damp, say 30 minutes to an hour after a shower or bath, it does not get frizzy and is easier to work with.

Lift your left elbow to shoulder height and make a thumbs down fist around the left portion of hair. Do the same on the right side, letting the middle portion lie against your spine.

Extend your left index finger and hook the right section of hair. Pull it in front of the middle section, letting it slip completely out of the right hand. Take the middle section of hair with your right hand, pull it to the right side, and then resume the thumbs down fist position with both hands.

Extending your right index finger, hook the far left portion of hair and let it slip completely out of the left hand. Shift the portion of hair in your left hand into a thumbs down fist and then release the left index finger. Make a thumbs down fist with your right hand and then use your left index finger to hook the far right section.

Continue the process until the braid is complete. To braid very long hair, you may have to free a hand to pull the sections through. Secure the braid as it develops by pressing your knuckles into it as you shift your hands for the next cross. Use a covered elastic to secure the finished braid and decorate as desired.

Experiment with using different hand positions. You may discover a technique that works better for you.

Practice leads to success

The first time you try to braid hair, it will go slowly. Practice your technique and be patient until you know how to braid hair. It may take some time to discover your rhythm. Braiding will become much easier with the more times you do it.

If you're braiding a young child's hair, ask that she keep her head still. Give her a hand mirror so she can watch you do the braiding. If her hair is too thin and fine for an elastic to hold the braid, use pipe cleaners. These come in many colors and children usually have them readily available.

When you're learning how to braid hair, it might help to visit a hair salon where they do braiding and watch the stylists braid their clients' hair. Another good practice technique is to braid the hair of a doll or hair mannequin.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    what are some sites to view pictures of black hair braids?
    I'm looking for pictures of micro braids and others to see exactly what I want to get done.

  2. QUESTION:
    help with black hair braids and going natural?
    i have had kinky twists. i have had corn rows. now i want something else. i see there are pixie braids, fishbone, plats, box braids, invisibles, etc.

    the problem is i cannot find a good site that has quality photos to show me what each braid type is. help!

    also, i am wearing braids to go natural. i cannot come my tangled natural hair. never had to. tell me how to comb it. it hurts when i comb it, and i cannot detangle it for nothing!

    • ANSWER:
      Im going through the same transition, when I have braids and then take them out i normally use conditioner it makes it easy to comb, then I normally let the conditioner sit for about 3-4 hours, then wash and then put organic leave in conditioner, for braids you can look up you tube they have plenty of vidoes for you to watch about braids, you can also try using a sew in, that helps more than braids because its your real hair and braids sometime damage your hair I hope this kind of helps.

  3. QUESTION:

      u can't judge someone on how pretty they r just by the color of their hair!!!!! Ppl have other great qualaties too!!! sheeesh!

  4. QUESTION:
    Black Hair! Braids! >>>Click<<<<< well..for my back to school hair i want to do this hair style called "pick and drop braids"..well apart frm human hair..which hair is better kanekalon, synthetic expression...by the way what is the difference between kanekalon, toyokalon and expression hair for braiding and which one is better for the pick and drop

    Please answer this question!!! i need your help!!....i it'll mean a lot!!! THANK YOU

    • ANSWER:
      ***Synthetic hair differences***

      Monofilament, or monofiber, is wonderful and usually found in wigs designed for everyday wear. It's the highest quality synthetic hair you can buy. It is very expensive (- per packet), but it feels exactly like human hair.

      Toyokalon, a lower grade of synthetic fiber that shows up in party wigs and some hair extentions. Wigs made out of this stuff are nearly always crappy and extentions, in all honesty are hit or miss. If you see a wig that is under , chances are its Toyokalon or a very poor grade of Kanekalon.

      The best general purpose safe bet for braiding is Kanekalon (sometimes branded as Eleora). It has a lovely, silky texture and is easy to find in every color you can imagine. There are differences by brand, but you would probably only notice if you work with wigs very often. Eleora Kanekalon is treated with a Teflon-ish substance that keeps the hair cleaner longer, but resists many spray dying techniques. It feels like normal Kanekalon, perhaps a little silkier.

      Hoped that helped!♥

  5. QUESTION:
    Swimming with black hair, how do I take care of my braids after swimming. Is wearing a cap enough?
    I usually wear my hair in braids and want to start swimming as my workout. I have heard that the chlroine is bad for your hair, is there a special shampoo to wash braids to remove the chlorine ... or will I be okay just wearing a swim cap.

    • ANSWER:
      A swim cap is just fine, but it doesn't completely protect your hair from the chemicals. You should condition your hair after each visit.

  6. QUESTION:
    white girl wants black braids, where to start?
    I have always admired black hair, especially braids and beads. But I am white and have smooth, straight, thick brown hair. I want to incorporate "add-on" braids (maybe corn-rowed) into an edgey short haircut, but can't find a photo gallery online to search for a style that I like. Once I have that, I think I can go to any stylist specializing in braids, right? Should I hold off cutting my hair too short until I find just the right look? Does anyone specialize in caucasion/black fusion hairstyles?

    • ANSWER:
      I recommend you go to your local beauty supply shop and see what they recommend. The one I frequent for wigs and hair pieces has a bulletin board of business cards of people who specialize in sewing in braids and/or have the clip in hair pieces available. Just go and ask a lot of questions! Best wishes!

  7. QUESTION:
    How do I make braids stand out in black hair.?
    I have black hair and every time im make pretty little braids in my hair it blends in with my straight hair. How do I make them stand out

    • ANSWER:
      tie ribbons in with the braids or a thin scarf to pull attention to the braided hair.

    Do braids really grow multiracial/black hair?
    I've been contemplating as to if i should braid my hair over the summer or not just to let it grow. I have natural hair and my hair is at my collar bone. How long should my hair grow with braids within 2 months? Thanks :)

    • ANSWER:
      Within 2 months you should have 1 inch of hair. Average hair growth is 1/2 inch per month. It's a common myth that braids grow your hair faster. it doesn't. What it does is keep your hair from breaking off because you can't comb and brush and style it; those things break off your hair.

      A quick explanation so you'll understand what I mean. Hair grows about 6 inches per year. If, after a year of trying to grow your hair, you don't have 6 inches in length then this means your hair broke off some point during the year. Lets say that you've been averaging about 3 inches of length per year, for the last few years. this means that each year you're losing 3 inches to breakage. that's a lot of hair. You're only retaining 50% of you growth instead of 100%. It doesn't matter how much hair you actually see. Your hair is ALWAYS growing from the scalp at the same rate. If you get relaxers, you'll notice the growth via new-growth. Same if you dye your hair. New growth means your hair is growing. It's a bit harder to spot with natural hair sans color.

      So, you have 6 inches of growth that's coming out of your scalp every year. But, for some reason you're only seeing 3 inches of longer hair. Why is that? Because of breakage. That's the number one cause why your hair isn't getting longer or stays the same length. People think their hair is growing slow or not growing at all. THat's false. It's because they a lot of breakage at the ends that's causing that. Again, it has nothing to do with growth from the scalp. Hair breaks off at the ends. THat's what keeps your hair from getting longer, even though it's growing regularly from the scalp.

      So, you decide that you want to try braids out to help grow your hair. Great. You keep your hair braided for 6 months. within that 6 months you that your hair is 3 inches longer. Yey! Now you think the braids are making your hair grow faster because you've never seen this kind of growth in 6 months. Can you tell me what's actually happening? No, your hair isn't growing faster. It's growing the same rate it's always grown. Lets take the average growth rate again - 1/2 inch per month. After 6 months your hair should be 3 inches longer. This is normal growth. But, the fact that your hair isn't constantly breaking off is why your seeing all your growth. The key is length retention, which is keeping your hair from breaking off. Otherwise, without the braids, combing and brushing would have broken off your hair and you'd have less growth. Get it? Now, you decide to keep the braids in for the rest of the year (the next 6 months). After the year, you see your hair has gotten 3 inches longer again! Nope, it's not faster hair growth. You've just been able to keep your hair from breaking off, thus retaining all your hair growth for the year.

      I hope this explains it. This is whether or not you're dealing with breakage or just want to speed up your hair growth because you want longer hair quickly. Braids don't make it grow faster. It keeps your hair from breaking off. If you have a problem with breakage and need a way to get your hair longer then wear braids. Just make sure you take care of them and make sure they're not too tight. Tight braids can actually damage your hair and cause breakage.

  9. QUESTION:
    Black Hair - Crochet Braids - How much hair do I need to buy?
    Hi - I am thinking of buying this: http://us.st12.yimg.com/us.st.yimg.com/I/yhst-2519492840586_2042_425477432
    and doing crochet braids. Assume I would like the hair quite full, how many packs do I need?
    Need to know how much to buy please.

    • ANSWER:
      Since it is synthetic hair, I would say a minimum of about 10-14 packs. But I do understand your dilemma - it looks like human hair and it is .00. If you can afford to - I would buy the 14 and then return the rest that you do not use. I sincerely think 14 will be more than enough. Take a look at this link:

      http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&ct=res&cd=3&url=http%3A%2F%2Fforum.blackhairplanet.com%2Ff24%2Fcaring-crochet-braids-2809%2F&ei=e87OSZu8ENDflQfo4ZzICQ&usg=AFQjCNERASaaQKQ5A_lzdW0dP_fPxfB0qA

      She used 7 packs. Her hair looks full because it is curly...so that is why I think you should do double the amount.

  10. QUESTION:
    What do men really feel about black natural hair and braids?
    When my hair is straighten, I get more attention from men. When it's natural, I get less attention. Why is that?
    Okay, the question could be a bit confusing. I was not speaking of the color of my hair but of African American women with natural hair or with braids.

    What do men really fell about African American women with natural hair (kinky) and/or braids?

    • ANSWER:
      I like black hair on a woman is sweet. I also love brown hair to.

  11. QUESTION:
    What is a good Black Hair Style for Swimming, besides braids?
    I know that braids are a good thing for people who swim alot, but i am tired of braids. Is there a style with weave or not for black women that you can swim in the ocean with and then not have to do much after? I am going on a long trip, and we will be swimming in the ocean and rivers for ten days with no actual showers and I need a hairstyle with very low maintenance.

    • ANSWER:
      Either you get braids or get a short sew in with curly or wet and wavy weave... Since you won't actually have showers, you don't want a long weave to tangle and I doubt you'll have combs/brushes.

      So, get a curly weave or regular braids. There really isn't much else that you can do.

  12. QUESTION:
    black hair care: braids/perm?
    I have a relaxer right now and i'm due for a touch up. but i want to get braids for the summer. should i perm my hair and then get braids? or should i braid it with out getting a touch up at all?
    My main concern is breakage. So i want to know the way that will prevent breakage.

    • ANSWER:
      braid it with out a touch up. you can get a perm first but some ppl hair breaks off when they do that. also it depends on how your hair is if you rather get a relaxer cuz your hair is tough to manage then do so. but there really is no point since your hair is going to be in braids anyways.

    • ANSWER:
      well...Usually when i have micro braids, braids to the back and what not, I always wash them when I take them out. It's just something that you're supposed to do. You should always wash your hair after taking your braids out, even if you did wash them while they were in. you could just wait a few more days to keep up with your schedule though. But i can understand if you don't want to wait that long, I know how you feel when you say they're itching and ready to breath. I know the feeling all too well, lol.

      So you're going to rebraid your hair? Maybe you should give your hair a rest from all the braids, your hair needs to breathe as well. Plus, braids can take your hair out in the front, back, edges mainly.

  17. QUESTION:
    deep conditionig??? with braids(black hair)?
    Heeyy people!!!!
    So i am going trough a transitioning phase, from relaxed hair to natural hair. So i got braid extensions!!!!
    But i sort of have breakage now, because i got my hair flat ironed.
    I heard that using mayonnaise as a deep conditioner would do good for my hair. But i dont deep condition because i am afraid of build up. But can i do it? maybe dilute the mayo with water? and can yall give me more good things for me to use as deep conditioner?Cuz i gave up on using store bought products, i just buy oils.

    • ANSWER:
      Mayo is good, but so far, nothing beats coconut oil. They use that in India and Sri Lanka to keep their hair all nice & shiny. I use it too, especially after the bleaching damaged it so much.

      What you'll do is saturate your hair with the oil and leave it on for 15 minutes. Then shampoo as usual. You can do that once or twice a week if you like. I usually use Parachute coconut oil, but you can use almost any kind.

  18. QUESTION:
    after you take the braids off,what are you going 2 do with the unbraided hair?
    im mixed with black,white,latina,arabic and american indian,but,i have black hair texture,after you take off the braids,if its ok you can put the hair mositurizer or grease or other hair products for black hair to make it healthy,neat and/or grow or it will messed-up the hair?.lets say i have my hair braided on 5 1/2 or 6 1/2 days and so,then i take half of the braids off and put a hair moisurzier or grease or other hair products on my unbraided hair and leave another half on friday,then on saturday take off another half of braids,wash my hair and then braid my whole hair,do u think that will make my hair grow or what?because i got my braided from saturday to thusrday or friday,then i want to take off the bottom and middle parts and leave the top part braided to make look like a headband,on saturday,i take off the top part,wash and set my hair and then braid my hair on saturday and start over again,do you take thats make my hair grow?.i just need your answers back,thank you!

    • ANSWER:
      Your hair will grow regardless of if it is braided or not. What your grease/conditioner will do is add back the essential oils and moisture because of your hair texture and your ethnicity. the only thing I would recommend is being careful with the rubber bands that you are using, because they may cause breakage.

  19. QUESTION:
    I have black hair but I want to take care of my hair to the fullest?
    I am a black women who wears my hair in braids. I am thinking bout changing it up by keeping it out of braids just for a change. I want to know how to keep my hair growing and looking healthy like how to treat it proper. I just need a good technique thats easy for a daily routine basis. I had my hair relaxed befor but that was long time ago and my hair kinda got damage by all the chemicals.

    • ANSWER:
      I have stopped relaxing my hair and have gone natural for a year and 6 months. I use carrot oil and olive oil cream. I use those daily for moisture. I wash my hair once a week. Any more then that my hair gets really dry. I use a deep conditioner treatment once a month. Or you can make your own out of avocado and coconut milk. Also at night I wrap my hair with the olive oil cream and a satin cloth. I hope this helps. Also check out

  24. QUESTION:
    How do you describe a Black person's Hair?
    I used to tell them it looked like black cotton, (but that didn't score me too high on the friendship ladder). It does though, and I was only being truthful.

    What do you think is the best style to wear black hair? Do funny braids or an Afro, or a shaved head look better to you?
    Does that kind of hair provide padding?. Say if a black football player had an Afro and then put a helmet on over that, would that make the impact softer?
    Or, If someone was evolved to have kinky hair to protect their head, then wouldn't it be foolish to shave your head? Would that only make your skull more vulnerable?
    Just don't tell me Black hair is exactly like white hair, because it truly isn't.

    • ANSWER:
      Personally, I'd describe my hair as kinky, but I wouldn't object to nappy. I wouldn't even mind the "black cotton" description, either.

      I put my hair in any style that I dream up. Braids, Afro, a combination of the 2, twists, braid-outs/twist outs, Afro puffs; I can even straighten it if I want to, and wear it down. Anything anyone with straight hair can do, I can also do. My favorite style though, is the Afro. I have a lot of hair, so I pick it out, and wear it big; Angela Davis style.

  25. QUESTION:
    WHY IS WHITE WOMEN HAIR STYLES GIVEN SO PERFENCE OVER BLACK? IS WHITE HAIR BETTER QUALITY THAN BLACK?
    when it comes to hair, its black women HAVE LITTLE CHANCE, you look at the music, media, fashion, entertainment, magazines, televsion, or anything, and black women hairsyles are almost non existent and very few white women have any atrraction or interest in black hairsyles. on top of that, almost all of the hair produducts on te market are designed for the white european hair and african hair prodicts are very rare and never worn by whites.

    In any case, black hair quality is really not that much different from white. its african and ciome from high heat which means it has more strength, durability, and resilience as you can see in hair braids, BIUT BLACK HAIR has little power. why is this

    • ANSWER:
      Sounds like you're talking about cultures where white people are the majority. People tend to norm against the group with the most visible power.

      Apparently, numbers of people with straight hair types is greater than those of us with non-straight hair.

  28. QUESTION:
    Black hair question: Micro Braids? 10pts for best answer. Thanks?
    I' ve always just worn caps or had hair sewn in but for Christmas I want to get micro braids. I like the straight look with the braid only a few inches from the scalp. My hair is thick and slightly below my shoulders- do I have to have it braided that long? I like the look of braided only a few inches from the scalp can you get that still if your real hair is longer. I mean I want the braid to stop a few inches from the scalp but the straight weave to go down the middle of my back. And if you do will it come out easier. Also how do you maintain your braids or recommend? 10pts for best answer. Thank you
    I don't want it to start a few inches from the scalp. I want it to start at the scalp but what I was asking does the braid have to stop at the length of your own hair. I see micros that the braid stops like at the crown of the head and the rest of the hair is straight I was asking if your hair is shoulder length can they stop the braid way up or do they have to end the braid where the length of your hair stops.

    • ANSWER:
      Yes, you COULD get your hair braided in the way that you seek but it would pose a few problems.
      1. It would leave your own hair exposed. This would make the released hair look bad. Your hair would eventually look completely different from the released false hair. This could also cause damage to your own hair, eventually causing split ends.
      2. This would cause your braids to unravel fast.

      It is a better option to have your micro braids braided at least one inch past your own hair to avoid these problems.
      Another option would be to get tree braids. You can use a method that will still look like micro braids and allow you to achieve the look that you are aiming for. With tree braids your own hair is cornrolled along with your fake hair and and while you're cornrolling you periodically release piece of the fake hair. It's kind of hard to explain so here is a video, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9wxBWuRWf5w . After that you can micro braid the released hair as you please.

    What should I do to get my black hair to grow and be healthy (again)??
    I'm black and I've been trying to grow my hair long for ever. I've been either braiding my hair or relaxing it. The problem is, after relaxing it, it always breaks off, and if I have braids for a long time my hair becomes weak.
    Right now I decided on braids after having them relaxed this summer, only for them to go brittle.
    So I need to know what are the best methods for black hair growth??
    Plus, I live in Finland, so I don't exactly have many salons (they don't know how to treat black hair) or products to chose from!
    I need help!!!!!
    Thanks in advance! :)

    • ANSWER:
      Organics Hair Mayonnaise, Dr. Miracle's Feel-it Gro formula, and Tail 'n' Mane Shampoo work together perfectly with my hair. They make it grow so fast. I cut my hair up to my ears in June and had it in a really cute choppy look. Right now my hair is past my shoulder blades. All summer I washed my hair with Tail 'n' Mane, then I would use the hair mayonnaise as a leave in conditioner. Then style as usual with the Feel-it Gro formula.

      You can actually feel it growing because of the tingling sensation from the Feel-it Gro. And all of these used together make your hair really soft and strong. Stay away from Gels and stiffening hairsprays because they cause your hair to break.

      And try not to use chemicals like relaxers and perms because it weakens your hair and it's not healthy. Try some natural alternatives such as a Press 'n' Curl. That's what I get. It keeps your hair strong and if the right person does it, people mistake it for a relaxer.

    >WILL BOX BRAIDS HELP

    PLSSSSS ANNNSWERR ALL QUESTIONS >THNKSS

    • ANSWER:
      Braids/braid extensions won't magically make your hair grow...I mean there is nothing in them that will automatically grow your hair, BUT they prevent you from touching your hair too much and manipulating it, which reduces breakage...and allows your hair a break and time to grow without constant fidgeting.

      So Yes, in a way box braids might give your hair a chance to grow, but there is no guarantee that it will grow a certain length in a certain amount of time.

      If you get them, remember to wash your scalp weekly (clean scalp=healthy scalp) and remember to moisturize the braids because you still need to try to care for your real hair underneath.

  33. QUESTION:
    (Black women preferably, but anyone can)does using a ceramic hair straightner really straighten black hair?
    I currently have my hair braided. whenever i take out my braids, i don't relax my hair. because of this my hair is really curly and thick, it's not kinky though. i want to straighten it because it will be much easier to comb and wash. i'm 13 y.o. and my mom thinks that if i use a curling iron too much, i'll damage my hair. i agree. we heard that the ceramic straightener doesn't do damage to the hair. is this true? have you used it before?

    • ANSWER:
      Ceramic flat irons don't damage your hair if you use them within reason (i.e., not every day, not on wet hair, not on already damaged hair). They can straighten any hair type if you do it properly.

    I am half back and half white with natural curly hair. My hair reaches (when dry) an inch above my shoulders. I used to straighten my hair, but I damaged it. I don't want to straighten it again so no straight hairstyles. I want a new curly hairstyle without cutting my hair, braids, or getting a weave. Right now I only wear my hair out, sometimes with a headband. Oh yeah, could you include some kind of picture (you'll probably get those 10 points if you do). And one last thing, don't send any pictures of Ashley Tisdale with curly hair, she does not have curly hair! Thanks

  37. QUESTION:
    How come mexican girls dont get individual braids in thier hair like black girls?
    im light skinned and black and some ppl think im mexican i just got my hair done in braids and its dark and curly does that not make me look mexican

    • ANSWER:
      mexicans come in all colors.some mexicans are white because they are of spanish from spain descent.there are other mexicans who are of spanish and mayan or spanish and aztec.the mayan and aztec people where indians who had a dark tan color.there are still mayans living in mexico who are just that mayan without any spanish blood.the pure blooded aztecs are no longer in existance though.they died off when the spaniards invaded mexico but the mayan people survived.some mayans can't even speak spanish some do speak spanish and the mayan language.the mayan and the aztec where the original inhabitants of mexico.they are like the native americans we have here in the united states.you ask why don't mexican girls get individual braids?well,braids originated in africa,just look it up and you will see.but other countries have copied that idea but USUALLY you will see people other than african americans with just one braid or two and also french braids one or two.also,mexicans mostly tend to have dark thick straight hair.

  38. QUESTION:
    I have black hair and sometimes i find lightish brown red hair?
    When I was in Elementary my hair was black but in the sun it was maroon/magenta
    My sister was braiding my hair and she found it, so i was like 0_o
    She gets white hair, cause she stresses a lot.
    But I rarely get stressed out, I never really feel angry.
    Why do I get these kinds of hair.

    • ANSWER:
      My hair is black too, and in the sun, the ends of my hair look like a light brownish color.
      Also I know some people's hair looks darker indoors (almost black) but in the sun you can see other lighter colors in their hair too. Once I found a golden colored hair in my friends hair, which is very very dark brown, and also sometimes it appears like a reddish-brown.
      I don't think its because of stress (although sometimes people do have their hair fall out or get white hairs when they are stressed) but its just that hair looks lighter sometimes ^^

  40. QUESTION:
    Can I remove my braids , relax my hair and rebraid (with extensions) in the same day?
    I have had braids (extensions) for about 2 years and am told my hair has grown enough to relax it, but I want to have braids again immediately (traveling to a place without black hair salons)- is this possible or will I lose my hair?

    • ANSWER:
      your hair is probably going to be very stressed out after removing the braids and relaxing it in the same day.

      why do you want to relax it if you're just going to be putting braids back in it? it seems like a waste of time and money to me. maybe just get the braids redone?

  41. QUESTION:
    How do I do my hair like Bill Kaulitz (braids)?
    I have been growing my hair for quite some time and has gotten pretty long. What all do I need to tell a stylist to do to get it like Bill has his hair now (black braids with white braids on the bottom.) I have thick jet black hair right now and yes I know I can't get from black to white. I intend on getting white extension but how do you braid the extensions? I have lots of questions and am hoping for lots of answers. I am a white guy and no I'm not gay.
    I know for a fact that they are braids.
    1. I have seen a closeup pic of him and could clearly see the braids. 2. In an interview he said that the band wanted to change their music style and apparance and also said when him and tom were on vacation he had the braids done for fun and they grew on him so he kept them.

    • ANSWER:
      Bill has dreadlocks, not braids. Meaning, you'd have to shave your head once you wanted the dreadlocks out. But anyways, you'd have to dye the top black and bleach the bottom white, then go to a professional salon and have it dread(or sister)locked.

  42. QUESTION:
    Black Women: How do you style you hair?
    I've been natural for almost 3 years. My hair is curly/wavy and it's in a full fro, it's to my shoulders. I just took out my braids. I thought about getting my hair blow-dried straight or have it pressed. I would never go back to relaxing my hair or coloring my hair.

    I haven't been to a salon in years. I'm looking for a new salon but all of the salons around my university all specialize in "white" hair and I think White salons are too scissor happy. I been to one a couple of years ago and I asked for a trim, the guy tried cutting my hair shorter than I wanted to...I hate cutting long hair! I don't mind going to White salons, but they get too scissor happy.I tried going back into DC finding a salon but most of Black salons don't know how to style natural Black hair, all they do is relaxers and I would never go back to that, no one knows how to do a decent press or blow dry.

    I hear that Dominican salons are great, but there are barely any Dominicans in the Dc area and I go to Africans for my hair braiding.
    @ Nine- Thanks, yeah. The Dominican salons talk about you hair if its nappy in Spanish. I should know, I'm part-Dominican, some Dominicans have some sort of problem with their Blackness. It's sicking.

    • ANSWER:
      I wear my hair naturally now, it's recent though since I just finished transitioning and chopped off the relaxed ends. I want my fro to get as big as E. Badu's in my avatar. I am learning how to take care of my own hair, it's rewarding and frankly as you stated nobody knows how to take care of natural hair. White salons don't even know how to do curly white girl hair. And black salons just want to put some creamy crack on your head and call it a day. Ask around in my area for someone who does natural hair and it's like you are looking for the lochness monster. lol

      Here's what I think you should do:
      1. Reconsider getting a blow out. It's like Russian roulette, your texture may not come back. Heat damage is real. I don't want to scare you but if you straighten your hair be aware of what heat may do.
      http://nappyme.wordpress.com/hair-facts/heat-nappy-hairs-worse-enemy

      http://rockyournatural.blogspot.com/2008/11/heat-damage.html

      2. If you do choose to get a blow out I don't suggest Dominican. People get all offended by anyone who bad mouths DR salons but I will tell you what I heard. They are very anti-nappy. They can get your hair super straight but it hurts, it kills your hair and they will talk about how nappy, ugly and unmanagable your hair is the whole time in Spanish.

      3. Learn how to do your own hair. It's not that hard, it's cheaper and you have the control. Here is a video on a natural straightening her hair:
      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zAB3l5e7OJk&feature=channel_page
      And for everyday styling definitely go to the below websites. I feel every black woman should be empowered to do her own hair. Too long the salons have preyed on the fact that we are ignorant about our hair, which is why so many of us walk around with damaged hair.

      4. If you really feel you need a salon to get a blow out Go to http://nappturality.com. They have a forum dedicated to finding salons that work on natural hair and know what they are doing.

      Some great natural youtube channels:

      MY HAIR ROUTINE:

      1.) Shampoo my hair with Nature's Gate, Apple Cider Vinegar or Aubrey Organics every other week. Every other week I use a gentler method known as co-washing. This is amazing for curly hair- it means shampooing with a light conditioner. Suave and Herbal Essences are great for this. It doesn't strip hair of all moisture and it cleans just as well. You just have to scrub a little harder to remove dirt and product from scalp and hair. Every few months or so I clarify (totally strip product out of hair) when I feel product build up. Product build up=bad becuase moisture can't get to hair which cuases dry hair.
      2.) I then condition after shampooing. I like Pantene R&N, Aubrey Organics Honeysuckle Rose, Herbal Essences, Organix, L'oreal, and Suave. None that have silicones in them (if the ingredient ends in cone it is a cone). These build up in curly hair. I usually detangle hair at this point. It takes a while but you only have to do it once a week. It takes me about 30 minutes to detangle my hair and my hair isn't even that thick. Rinse out condish.
      3.) Apply leave in condish and towel dry your hair.
      4.) Apply Fantasia IC gel with sparkle lites (available at at Sally's beauty supply). Or some other gel/holding product. This defines your curls. Keeps frizz away.
      5.) At this point I decide on the style I want. Be creative. I like two strand twists. Do them right and they can stay fresh for up to 3 weeks. Don't forget some cute hair accesories. I can also just wash and go but DON'T do this every day becuase you will notice your hair gets tangled quicker when loose and it won't grow as long if you leave it out every day.
      6.) Even if my hair is in twists I still apply leave in condish EVERYDAY.
      7.) Every other week (every two weeks) I Deep condition. What is deep conditioning? It's conditioning that can better penetrate into hair strands and is very good for curly hair.

      At some point I am pretty sure I am going to loc my hair. Our hair naturally likes to loc, it's the next step and I have found that dreads aren't dirty as people claim. They can be clean, beautiful and managed. I'm very excited but for now I am rocking twists, twist outs, braids, curly fros, bantu knot outs, cornrows, and other natural styles. Check out the below websites. Good luck, hope that helped.

  43. QUESTION:
    Black/Afro Hair: When to relax hair after braids...?
    I have had braids in for about 14months. I intend to take them out in mid May.. how long do i have to wait between taking them out and relaxing my hair??
    Lol.. No i haven't had the same braids in for 14months.. i have been braiding my hair in extension over a period of 14months, and re-doing them every 2months... cheers for the answers so far! x

    • ANSWER:
      I would wait at least two weeks. You want to give your scalp time to rest from the tension of the braids and you want to let it breath. Plus, it will burn if you go get a relaxer right after taking them out (from my experience).

    Black hair care question?
    Hey...so I had my hair braided from Saturday to this morning, when I took them out to get the curly/wavy look. It looks really good and I'm wondering how to maintain this look for the rest of the week...like when I go to sleep, what am I supposed to do with my hair? My mom told me to braid it again but in bigger braids and put a scarf on it...would that work? Btw, I used Elasta QP Curl Wax and Dudley's Moisture Retainer on my hair which helped it maintain the curls / waves....

    Also, For what it's worth, I have long, thick 3c/4a hair...

    Thank you!
    I'm Black...not Asian lol

    • ANSWER:
      if you put a scarf on it while you sleep
      and braid it back it should work
      you could also use a diffuser if you wash it because
      usually it will keep the texture and everything
      just put some leave in conditioner and it should
      work!
      well I tried

  50. QUESTION:
    Question about natural black hair?
    So im trying to go natural to get my hair to grow. I think my hair will grow if I get my hair braided every month. Im not really sure about what to do when it comes to taking care of it. So would I shampoo my hair with the braids in or take them down? After I shampoo would I add in conditioner and let it air dry with twists or something or would I blow dry it with conditioner? Please let me know if I have this down pact or not I REALLY want my hair to grow. (If you can will you please recommend some conditioners, shampoos and heat protectants. Can you also recommend some other protective styles beside cornrows)

    Ive been getting my hair pressed and curled my whole life and I think its time for a change.

    • ANSWER:
      Firstly I'm almost relieved that your hair has only been heat damaged and not chemically damaged (if I read your post correctly). Secondly, I agree with low manipulation. You can shampoo in twists or large braids if you feel that that is more effective. After shampooing you should probably deep condition it by taking each braid/twist out and applying the conditioner, combing (with a Denman or wide-toothed comb or your fingers) that section to detangle, and braiding/twisting it back up. Let that sit for 15-20 minutes and then wash it out. You can then apply some conditioner or moisturizer and let it air dry in twists/braids. Don't blow dry! That kind of defeats the purpose of you avoiding heat damage. It will take some time to air dry.

      Here's a hint a lot of nappies follow: Calm down with the shampooing. Shampooing once a week or even less is all you need (personally, twice a month). Any other time you want to wash your hair and it's not a shampoo week/time, just use conditioner! Lots of people do this, even white people with curly hair.

      Protective style-wise, you could do the following: kinky braid extensions, weaves, wigs, twists (on your own hair).

      For products, I personally recommend Carol's Daughter and this other stuff I haven't been able to try yet, the Jane Carter Solution, which is available at Target!

      For more info and lots of community support in going natural, I suggest both of these forums: Hairlista.com and Nappturality.com.

      Good luck in your healthy hair journey! =^_^=


Hair Braids Styles

LATCH HOOK CROCHET BRAID
I would like to talk today about a old hair style that is coming back. Actually the style never went out. Some hair beauticians have not heard of this style. Latch hook crochet braids.

I have been braiding this style for many years, and love it. You do not have to sit in you beauty shop for 6 to 7 hrs. This style will only take about 4hrs or  less time to do, and the cost is much less.

First what are latch hook crochet braids?  Latch hook crochet braids are individual pieces of hair that are connected to cornrows using a latch hook. What is a latch hook? A latch hook is a tool that is use the pull your crochet hair through your cornrows. You can purchase one at any craft store of beauty supply. Look for bulk hair that comes in a pack already braided in individual pieces, or you can buy the hair pre-package loose.

To start make sure you wash, oil and blow dry your hair. Then start cornrowing your hair straight back from the top of your head to the nap. I cornrow about 7 to 12 braids across. Then at the end connect the braids together to one side. Now your ready to add your hair extension. Take the latch hook and slide it under your cornrow starting at the top of your hair. Take one individual braid fold it in half and latch it on the hook and pull through. You will then knot the individual braid at the top of the cornrow so it will not fall off. Cover all of the cornrows, making sure there are no spaces in between. Your finish look will look beautiful. I hope to make some short videos soon to show the process.

    How to do scene hair with box/micro braids?
    I'm black, and all I see is white little rich girls with their straight hair posing in pictures. I hate that! I want to see more black girls doing that! I need to know a braided hair style with micro/box braids please! Do not be rude/

    • ANSWER:
      That actually was really rude. Most white girls have straight hair and everyone poses for pictures. Black girls can do that too, they just need to straighten their hair and pose for pictures. Micro braids are too heavy and cannot be teased to achieve the scene hair look. But I do love the way micro braids look, you should just keep that hairstyle. I'm sure it looks great on you.

    what cause hair loss with the hair style braids?
    I have been having my hair braid for about 4 years now. my hair in the middle has hair no less then an inch. the lady said that I need to put grease in my hair to help it grow. I have not seen my hair fall out. do any body know what could be causing this? im just 20 years old

    • ANSWER:
      if you try to braid you hair too much then your hair can break off..this is due to tightness of braids. It usually happens in the front, but it can happen all over your head. You should take sometime off from braids, relaxers, etc. and just let your hair be natural. You can also use olive oil, carrot oil, grease, etc. to help with the growth.

About Propecia

Propecia is used for the treatment of male pattern hair loss (androgenetic alopecia) in men with established efficacy in ages between 18 to 41 years. But, hair re-growth is possible only in men with mild to moderate hair loss of the vertex and anterior mid-scalp area. However, the efficacy of Propecia has not been established in men with bitemporal recession.

Finasteride, the main ingredient in Propecia, blocks the conversion of testosterone into DHT, thereby stopping hair loss and aiding in hair re-growth. Finasteride comes in tablet form and is available in strength of 1mg only for hair loss treatment. In addition, numerous side effects have been reported with this drug, including impotence, decreased libido, and breast enlargement.

Brand-name finasteride (Proscar or Propecia) is manufactured by Merck & Co., Inc.

About Male Pattern Baldness

Male pattern baldness is a universal condition found in men who experience thinning of the hair on the scalp which starts with a gradual decline in men in their 20s. Oftentimes, this thinning of hair results in a receding hairline and/or balding on the top of the head.

It is generally believed by the doctors that male pattern baldness is by and large due to heredity and in addition, depends on hormonal effects also. This type of hair loss is generally referred to as androgenetic alopecia.

Hair is made up of hair follicles which are tiny pouch like bags found just under the surface of the skin. A single hair will stay in the follicle for about 3 years which is then shed and a new hair grows from the same follicle. This cycle of growth, shedding and new growth goes on throughout one's life. The following pattern thought to occur in men as they gradually become bald which includes:

Affected hair follicles on the scalp gradually become smaller than normal

As the follicle shrinks, each new hair is thinner than the previous one

Before falling out, each new hair grows for much less time than the normal 3 years or so

Eventually, all that remains is a much smaller hair follicle and a thin stump of hair that does not grow out to the skin surface

Male hormones are responsible for these changes. Hair follicles convert testosterone, the male hormone, into another hormone called dihydrotestosterone. For reasons not yet unveiled, affected hair follicles become more sensitive to dihydrotestosterone, which causes the hair follicles to shrink. However, it is known that different hair follicles are affected at different times which make the balding process gradual.

Moreover, it is also not clear why only scalp hair is affected, and not the hair in the other areas like the beard or the armpits in men. But, male pattern baldness occurs gradually over time. Similarly, Propecia also has a gradual effect on hair re-growth.

Propecia for Men Hair Loss treatment

For most men, Propecia aids in increasing the number of scalp hair in the first year of treatment itself. Propecia helps to fill in the thin or balding areas of the scalp. In addition, hair loss slows down. Although, the results may vary, generally it is not possible to re-grow all of the lost hair. However, there is no proof as to Propecia working in the treatment of receding hairline in the temporal area on both sides of the head.

Propecia must be taken daily for three months or more before any benefit can be seen. Known to work over the long term, Propecia is an ongoing treatment for hair re-growth. However, if Propecia has not worked for you in twelve months, further treatment is not likely to bring any benefit. In addition, if Propecia intake is stopped, there will be a likely loss in the hair that was gained within 12 months of stopping treatment.

How does Propecia work?

Finasteride, the main ingredient in Propecia, is a competitive and specific inhibitor of Type II 5a-reductase, an intracellular enzyme that converts the androgen testosterone into DHT. Two distinct isozymes found in humans, Type I and II, are differentially expressed in tissues at different developmental stages. In humans, Type I 5a-reductase is predominant in the sebaceous glands including the scalp and liver and is responsible for approximately one-third of circulating DHT. Meanwhile, Type II 5a-reductase isozyme is primarily found in the prostate, seminal vesicles, epididymides, hair follicles and the liver and is responsible for two-thirds of the circulating DHT.

In humans, finateride's mechanism of action is primarily based on its preferential inhibition of the Type II isozyme. For both isozymes, finasteride inhibits and reduces the inhibitor to dihydrofinasteride. The turnover for the enzyme complex is slow and therefore the hair re-growth is slow.

Finasteride has no similarity with the androgen receptor and has no androgenic, antiandrogenic, estrogenic, antiestrogenic, or progestational effects. Propecia produces a rapid reduction in serum DHT concentration and has the ability to reach about 65% suppression within 24 hours of taking the 1mg oral dose.

In men with androgenetic alopecia, the balding scalp contains miniaturized hair follicles and increased amounts of DHT as compared to a hairy scalp. Use of Propecia successfully reduces scalp and serum DHT concentrations in these men. By this mechanism, finasteride interrupts a key factor in the progress of androgenetic alopecia in those patients who are genetically predisposed.

Who should buy Propecia?

Propecia has been introduced for the treatment of male pattern hair loss in men and should not be taken by women or children. Propecia can be taken by:

Men only above the age of 18 years

Anyone who is not allergic to any of the ingredients of Propecia

Women who are or may potentially be pregnant should not use Propecia or handle crushed or broken Propecia tablets. Because, if a pregnant woman with a male baby absorbs the active ingredient in Propecia, either by swallowing or through the skin, it may cause abnormalities to foetus' genital organs.

Propecia dosages

Propecia 1mg tablet is meant for oral administration and is the recommended daily dosage. These tablets are film-coated and contain 1mg of finasteride. it may be administered with or without meals.

In general, three months of regular use of Propecia is required before any benefit can be observed. Continuous use is recommended to sustain gained benefits. Withdrawal of treatment will lead to reversal of effect within 12 months.

Coated Propecia tablets help prevent contact with the active ingredient finasteride during normal handling, provided that the tablets are not broken or crushed.

Hair Care - Hair Split Ends Treatment
Split ends are the easiest type of hair damage to control. Split ends are the result of normal hair wear and tear, but can also by toweling your hair too vigorously when it is wet, over blow drying, and excessive coloring, bleaching, or perms. Another factor that can lead to split-ends is sun exposure. Fine hair is especially prone to splitting.

Causes

There are different causes for split ends. Split ends occur when the protective cuticle is destroyed at the end of the hair. Split ends will happen to almost anyone. Split Ends are more likely to develop in brittle or dry hair. Typical causes of split ends damage include vigorous brushing, brushing hair when it is still wet, coloring and perming which make hair weak, and heat appliances. There are other causes for split ends beside some of the main ones mentioned above. Other causes could be excessive tangling, improper application or removal of hair extensions, headgear that snaps or rips delicate strands or even scratchy bedclothes, fingers or hands.

Blow dryers, curling irons and flat ironers should all be avoided until you can get a haircut. The main reason is because they are actually known to cause or worsen split ends, especially when they are not used properly. Make sure that you use curling irons and flat irons when the hair is dry and, ideally, in combination with a hair serum. Also, be sure to not overuse these tools. Only using them several times a week is the best.
Take care not to split them in the first place, because the only cure is a trim, according to trichologists (hair doctors) everywhere.

Trichoptilosis is a longitudinal splitting of hair fiber better known as "split ends". It develops after the protective cuticle has been stripped away from the end of hair fibers as a result of over processing. Any chemical or physical trauma that weathers the hair may eventually lead to split ends. Vigorous brushing can even induce it.

Rinse well and then do a cool to cold rinse to seal the hair's cuticles and ends, adding instant sleekness and glossiness.

Make sure that the split end areas are dried as straight as possible since splits look worse when they are allowed to wave, curl, frizz or spike out.

To keep your hair healthy and to prevent split ends you should deep condition your hair once a month. A good method to doing this is to put the conditioner in your hair and place a plastic cap over your head with all your hair inside. Then place a hot damp towel on top of the plastic cap and leave on there for 10 minutes. Afterward, rinse hair with extremely cold water.

Use regular conditioner in your hair after shampooing, and a deep conditioner once a month.
Use shampoo with ingredients that include sunscreen and moisturizing cream in your hair if it is extremely dry.
Give regular massages to your scalp and hair with lukewarm oil at least twice a month. You can choose coconut oil, olive oil or almond oil for your hair. You can even mix this oil and apply the solution on your hair.
Rub a lime on your scalp if there is dandruff on your scalp, leave it for 10 minutes and shampoo the hair. You should use medicated dandruff shampoo and oil to apply on your hair when they are suffering from dandruff.

  3. QUESTION:
    Is it prohibited from a dog being in a beauty shop/hair salon?
    I am told that a beauty shop can be fined if a dog is brought into the establishment while I am having my hair done?

    • ANSWER:
      If it is a private establishment and you personally know the owner, that owner might allow you to bring your dog. If it is a working dog (not just seeing eye), then it IS allowed. But a public establishment could be sued by anyone who does not want to have a dog in there for reasons such as allergies, dislike, or pure fear of dogs. Even if they weren't sued, they could lose a lot of regular customers.

    Is the beauty shop hair color better for your hair than store bought?
    My sister say's for me to go to a beauty salon to get my hair colored. She said using store bought dye will make your hair thin and it's not good.

    Is there an expert out there!

    • ANSWER:
      Yes, because the stylist has a preference of what kind of dye produces the best result for your hair color. And they apply it, and know how long the toner should stay in the hair to give you the color you want- they've done this from experience. They also have the equipment (dryers, foil, etc) to get the best results.

      Over the counter hair colors- (usually going from brown to blonde) will produce a reddish color.

      I've found this through my own experience, salon is always better!

    What is a good hair cut for woman over 50? Hair is way below shoulders. Any one know a good beauty shop ?
    I would like to find a beauty shop that can look at your face and body to give you the best hairstyle to complement your face and body. Anyone know of one? i love my long hair, but it is hot, and it is a lot of work keeping it looking nice.

    • ANSWER:
      To a find a good salon, I highly recommend going to www.redken.com and clicking on the salon finder link. You can put in your zip code and it will give you a list of Redken salons. Redken provides plenty of continuing education to it's salons and stylists which will include the type of service you are looking for. As for the hair style, the same rule applies whether you are over 50 or under 25. Bone structure, height, life style, hair texture, color, density, and many other factors determine a great style for you. In general, this does not include something parted down the m iddle and all one length but without a photo of you, I can't recommend a specific style. Most reputable salons offer complimentary consultations. Schedule an appointment or two at various salons in your area. When you find a stylist you're comfortable with, you can schedule an appointment. Go with an open mind, and allow the stylist to tell you what he/she would do if they had carte blanche to do whatever they wanted. This will give you a good feel for whether you want them to do your hair. A good consultation should include plenty of questions about your hair, your styling abilities, time constraints, lifestyle, etc. If you'd like to email me a recent photo of yourself, I could give you some recommendations. Good luck

  15. QUESTION:
    How many of you color your own hair, or do it at the beauty shop for a 90% markup?
    I tell you, I get more compliments when I do my own hair on the color it turns out than I do when I get it professionally done. It's just a pain to do it on my own, but it is definitely worth it to save the money. I do get it professionally colored a couple times per year when I go in for a haircut (to treat myself). But for the most part, L'oreal or Miss Clairol are my hair colorers!!!!

    • ANSWER:
      Over the counter color that you find in drug stores, like "box" color is a metallic dye that destroys the hair over time, frying it. Salon color is formulated with smaller molcules to work better, and with out metal in it. Kinda like perscription drugs versus OTC medication.Bottom line, if you cannot go to a salon for color, go to a "beauty supply store" like SALLY'S BEAUTY SUPPLY or some where like that. It's just as affordable and much more professional. It will also save your hair from frying out!

  19. QUESTION:
    What influences your decision to visit a certain "hair salon" or beauty shop?
    Please be detailed and specific and explain yourself!!!!

    • ANSWER:
      It is a MUST to get a referral from someone I trust, and use only THAT hairdresser not just anyone from that salon. Always ask the question, "does he/she cut it just the way you ask?", and "is he/she capable of creating a style that really suits you if you leave it up to that hairstylist". Those hair stylists are the best, letting them do what they do best.

  33. QUESTION:
    How many years of beauty school do you need to open up ur own hair shop?

    • ANSWER:
      None.

      The owner of a salon does not need to be a cosmetologist. You can be an owner and know nothing about the operations of the business, but manage the financial and marketing side of the business.

      The manager of a salon (operations manager) must be a licensed cosmetologist. That requires about one year of school. The precise number of hours varies from one state to another, usually between 1300 and 2000 hours.

      I strongly recommend that anyone who wants to own and operate a salon have a cosmetologist's license and some exposure to accounting, marketing, finance, and management theory.

    Will the people at the beauty shop cut too much of my hair off?

And I was kind of worried a little about my hair when she said layered cause I have some friends that have long hair that stops at the middle of their back and when they got their hair layered it was a little bit past their shoulders and my hair is thick and a little past my shoulders now and I was wondering will the lady that will layer my hair cut too much of my hair off? And should I go to the beauty shop if it's my first time.
    Also when I am done getting it layered and it is like two months later when I need my ends trimmed, do I have to go back to the beauty shop or do I let someone that I know like my aunt trim it like always? Thanks a lot if you answered my question.

  50. QUESTION:
    Does anyone know how to say hair or shears or any names in dutch for a beauty shop?
    Thanks!!

    • ANSWER:
      Hi,
      In the Netherlands most beauty shops are still just hairdressers, locally known as 'kapper', (women only as 'dames kapper',) but can go under many different descriptions.
      My local one was called 'The hair shop' (it closed recently.)
      Most hairdressers are unisex, but if there is 'herenkapper' on the window, it is a gents only place.

      Shears, scissors, are 'schaar' for one pair and 'scharen' when you talk about more pairs of scissors or shears.
      Hair is 'haar' or 'haren' and a comb is a 'kam'.

      A salon where they will clean your skin, take care of your eyebrows and so on is known as 'schoonheids salon' or under one of the common English names.
      Nails are also done in a separate 'nagel studio'.

  1. QUESTION:

    Does anyone know of Eyebrow Threading locations in the Atlanta/Decatur, GA area?

    • ANSWER:
      eyebrow threading? That's a new one on me, but try this site for results... http://search.yahoo.com/search;_ylt=A0geu8xd0MxGKVIBrdtXNyoA?p=%22eyebrow+threading%22%2C+Atlanta&y=Search&fr=yfp-t-501

  2. QUESTION:
    Please tell me where you get your eyebrow threading done?
    I am trying to make list of the Eyebrow threading places, for those who can not find one near there place. Please tell me where you get your eyebrow threading done. It will be nice if you give some details, try to include some details like city, location near which freeway, email or web adress etc. and how your experiance was.

    • ANSWER:
      Not every beauty salon does eyebrow threading missy, its usually the Indian people who do it. Anyways I get mine done at the Puente Hills Mall, City of Induatry, of 60 fwy at Rita's Indian Beauty and I love it, the girls are very nice, very professional and clean, give the perfect arch the way I like it and I get to watch the Indian movies too. The web site WWW.4EYEBROWTHREADING.COM I always use their Discount coupon too of the web site. Its only .00 with coupon.

  3. QUESTION:
    I need help with promoting my eyebrow threading business. Any suggestions?
    I need help with promoting my eyebrow threading business. Any suggestions?
    I am an eyebrow threader in south Florida. I am not in a salon. I deliever personalize service by coming to my clients, I have only really done friends & family. but I want to really further my business. I like the freedom of not being tied down to one location BUT I dont have the perks of a location. I offer a service not many people offer or know about. So what do you suggest?
    I need help with promoting my eyebrow threading business. Any suggestions?
    I am an eyebrow threader in south Florida.Eyebrow threading is an ancient alternative to waxing,that removes facial hair with cotton thread. The threader can shape eyebrows and do everything waxing does without damage to the top layer of the skin.

I like the freedom of not being tied down to one location BUT I dont have the perks of a location. I offer a service not many people offer or know about. So what do you suggest?

    • ANSWER:
      Well, basically you should make some nice flyers and business cards and leave them at all of the local indo/pak businesses and places of worship in ur town. It is a unique service to offer home visits, but desi people usually are not so willing to pay extra for anything. If u do anything other than threading, be sure to mention it on the flyer too, like facials and hair style, mehndi, makeup....ect. Once word gets out about ur sevices and the convenience, I am sure ur business will be rolling, word of mouth is ur best advertisement in desi communities. Goodluck to you!!!

  4. QUESTION:
    Where can I get my eyebrows threaded near Ocean City, MD?
    I just moved to Ocean city, md and am in need of a place to get my eyebrows threaded. The location doesn't need to necessarily be in ocean city, md but anywhere surrounding...that's not too far away. Thanks!

  5. QUESTION:
    I just got infected by some Trojan Backdoors?
    But AVG wont let me remove it, the thread File location is some of UtraIso COmponents, should i just delete the components, or should i remoce them as a power user?

    • ANSWER:
      Run your virus scan in Safe Mode. That should let you remove it.

  6. QUESTION:
    How can I find out who is posting on an internet thread using an anonymous name and location?

    • ANSWER:
      You cannot. If you believe a crime has been committed, or you have been threatened with harm and fear for your safety, contact the police, who will investigate, and if they determine there has been a crime or a valid threat, they will go to the DA who will request a judge to issue a subpoena to the ISP who owns the address for information re. the IP.

      PS Just because someone piss*d you off is not considered a crime.

  7. QUESTION:
    can someone name me as many locations in death note as they possibly can?
    Right, i have a death note roleplay group on a website and i need as many locations in death note as possible so i can make more threads, if anyone could tell me as many as they can, it'd be greatly appreciated, i have..
    hotel
    Wammys House
    Yotsuba Corporation building
    University
    Lights' Appartment thing
    mafia's hideout
    headquarters

    so far..

    • ANSWER:
      Hmmm, let's see:
      The TV station is a very important one! The one someone else already referred to is probably Sakura TV (the one Soichiro Yagami crashes a truck into).
      Also there is NHN, the second TV station which Takada represents and reports from.
      There's the *NPA* headquarters, which is different from the larger, more impressive one that L has built to house the investigation later on. The one where Yagami meets Naomi Misora.
      SPK headquarters, the one attacked by Kira worshippers.
      Second SPK headquarters, the one located in Japan.
      Yagami's school, then college.
      Movie sets, good for anyone who likes Misa Amane.
      The Shinigami Realm.
      I *could* name a whole bunch more little places, but I just list the ones where significant events take place. Places where a person in the world of Death Note might hang out.

      And the best location of all (drumroll please): The Yellow Box! The warehouse where Yagami meets his doom. = )
      Thanks, this question is fun. I hope I helped. Be sure to come back and provide us with a link to your website!

  8. QUESTION:
    using the new keyword in a loop in Java?
    Can anyone tell me what will happen if the following code executes

    while(true)
    {
    Thread t=new Thread();
    }

    Will this create just one memory location and overwrite the instance of 't' each time the loop executes?
    Or will it be that new/different memory locations will be created in the memory for each time the loop executes?

    • ANSWER:
      This is infinite running loop. It will run forever.

      Every time it encounter statement Thread t=new Thread();,
      it create reference variable t on stack and create Object of type Thread on Heap;

      After each iteration, reference variable t gets destroyed and created Object become eligible for garbage collection.

      Whenever garbage collector runs it will cleanup unreferenced objects to create space in memory. But, when garbage collector runs that is unpredictable.

  9. QUESTION:
    Looking for recommendation on web based project management & collaboration for small business?
    My company (35 employees in home office, with 10 employees scattered in 5 remote locations) is looking for a product/service that we can used in a web based environment to track important projects and collaborate on those projects. We could host the product on our own system or use a hosted package, either option is fine.

    We do NOT want something over complicated, but we do want to be able to do file sharing, have threaded conversations, track to-dos & responsibilities, set & report on milestones, track whether or not key due dates are being met.

    Managing the system should be relatively easy. I am the only IT person on staff and already have a full plate.

    Thank you in advance for your feedback.

    • ANSWER:
      There are several good ones, and most will give you a few weeks for a free demo. We use www.teamworkzone. But, other good ones include ...

      www.weboffice.com
      www.eproject.com

      Our web based CRM system (www.salesboom.com) has limited project management capability.

  10. QUESTION:
    car is leaking oil from oil drain plug how do i fix it?
    the threading for where the screw is inserted is messed up not the screw/bolt itself and oil is leaking from the drain plug location. is there an easy way to fix this?

    • ANSWER:
      junk yard pan and bolt....new pan and bolt.. or tap the pre existing pan i would still drop the pan to do this any way metal shavings in the engine is bad ...also replace the oil pan gasket ..

  11. QUESTION:
    How do i calculate the magnitude of the electric field in the problem below?
    A wall has a negative charge distribution pro-
    ducing a uniform horizontal electric field. A
    small plastic ball of mass 0.0263 kg, carrying
    charge of −93 μC, is suspended by an un-
    charged, nonconducting thread 0.387 m long.
    The thread is attached to the wall and the
    ball hangs in equilibrium in the electric and
    gravitational fields, as shown.Calculate the magnitude of the electric field
    at the ball’s location due to the charged wall.
    Assume the electric force on the ball has a
    magnitude of 0.0768 N.

    • ANSWER:
      A quick hyperphysics.info search for electric field gives:

      http://hyperphysics.info/?cx=partner-pub-6503468025187103%3Akxag2b-tx0r&cof=FORID%3A9&ie=ISO-8859-1&q=electric+field

      The first link has governing equations, diagrams, and descriptions.

      And there is more than just help with electric fields. You can search for help on any type of physics.

      Enjoy!

  12. QUESTION:
    How can i see if my motherboard supports hyper-threading ?
    I have a T5900 Intel processor that supports Hyper-Threading.
    How can I check if my motherboard supports HT as well ?

    Here is some information regarding my motherboard:

    Base Board Information
    Manufacturer: ASUSTeK Computer Inc.
    Product Name: K50IE
    Version: 1.0
    Serial Number: BSN12345678901234567
    Asset Tag: ATN12345678901234567
    Features:
    Board is a hosting board
    Board requires at least one daughter board
    Board is replaceable
    Location In Chassis: MIDDLE
    Chassis Handle: 0x0003
    Type: Motherboard
    Contained Object Handles: 0

    Also... I didn't see an option for enabling HT in the BIOS. Maybe it's a bit out of date, or maybe it just doesn't support it.

    BIOS:
    Vendor: American Megatrends Inc.
    Version: 207

    Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      You can look on this page http://www.cpu-world.com/info/Intel/mobile-processor-number.html to find out that it does not. There is a - under HT( Hyperthread Technology ) instead of a + so that means that CPU does not support it. http://ark.intel.com/ usually has that info but that CPU is a bit old.

      EDIT: SOME Intel processors have the Hyper thread support. My INTEL i5 2500K does NOT support it Intel® Hyper-Threading TechnologyNo......... http://ark.intel.com/products/52210/Intel-Core-i5-2500K-Processor-(6M-Cache-3_30-GHz) .That processor doesn't support it either.

      It's always best to make an informed statement and not a blanket statement.

  13. QUESTION:
    How do i join a local venting guild on wow?
    I tried to post on guild recruitment forum on official wow site but i put my location Bronx, NY (B/c i would like to join a local guild) and within two hours they banned me and deleted all my threads ever written (which i had only written my first three today 2 hours later i look and they were deleted)

    • ANSWER:
      Hopefully you want a local guild that uses vent and not a local venting guild. They are two very different things.

      You were probably banned because you were trying to look for local players in an international forum. Can you imagine what the forum would look like if everyone posted trying to find local players? Your best bet to find local players is to find them locally. Go to game shops, put an ad on craigslist for your area, meet gamers, etc. Don't be surprised if you don't find a local guild though. Even if you meet other WoW players, chances are very good they'll be on different servers.

  14. QUESTION:
    How do you take out splinters ?
    I was folding plastic folders yesterday and felt almost like a sharp paper cut but i was not cut. I think I have a sliver of plastic thread stuck in my finger.

    How do I get this out ? And if I don't remove - can it be harmful ? I spotted the location this morning

    • ANSWER:
      A lot of people result to picking at the splinter from the opening of the skin - don't do that! You're going to push it in even more!
      Either get a needle and pick at the sides of the splinter till you see enough of it to be able to pull it out with tweezers. Or get something flat and hard like .. uhhh a buisness card or something. And use it to push the splinter back out, from the other side - not the side that you can see.

      Hope this helps (:

  15. QUESTION:
    I have a 6.5 hp craftsman lawnmower that doesn't want to start?
    The tip of the plug and tip of the thread looks dark and looks like theres an oil on it. Is that normal. I have not check the coil or magneto yet, since I'm not sure about their location. The carburetor looks good. Try to start it without the filter and doesn't work. Put new gas and still not working.

    • ANSWER:
      If there's oil on the tip of the spark plug, it may not be getting a spark.

      Dry off the spark plug with a rag, screw it back in, and try it. If it does start, the oil on the plug indicates a leak somewhere - probably a gasket.

      It'll need the gasket replaced eventually.

  16. QUESTION:

    I need help on how i would be able to get this to work using the background worker tool or at least running that code on a sepearate thread from the rest of my app any help apreciated a.s.a.p been working on this app for a month and want it done thanks :D
    I need a SPECIFIC code example that relates to specificaly what im doing this is totally confusing to me and the first question is to general if the first answer-er is reading this i was unable to email u
    i understand what u are saying but i dont know what i need a delegate FOR im guessing either the shape or the frmmain but in either case i dont know how i would write that delegate and apply it via code
    the problem is i dont know WHAT to write i dont know how i would write the delegate if i understand u write i should make a separate sub for making the shape and call it or sumthing from the worker thread and also would their be a speed imrpovment using delagates and worker thread verses just 1 thread
    ok im kinda understanding this this is what i have so far :

    Private Sub drawthedot()
    If Me.InvokeRequired Then
    Dim dot As New drawdot(AddressOf drawthedot)

  18. QUESTION:
    how do I fix a flat tire on my car?
    I got a nail on my tire. I can see it. How do I fix it before I need to go buy me a new tire ? The nail location is on the tire threads where it actually make a contact with a road. Today, i air pumped it just enough to last long to do a local driving, it is still holding an air... but I know it will go completely flat just like this morning.

    • ANSWER:
      Turn the flashers on and slowly and safely pull off the road. Find a spot that is visible but also away from traffic. Avoid soft shoulders and inclines. Put the hood up to indicate to other motorists that you are in mechanical distress, or set a few flares out on the road at 10-foot (3-m) intervals.

      Apply the hand brake and put the transmission in park or in gear so the car won't roll.
      Open the trunk and take out a spare tire, leverage pipe, jack, lug-nut wrench and (if it's dark out) flashlight (see illustration). The leverage pipe is simply a piece of hollow pipe that can help you loosen a lug nut previously tightened with an air ratchet; you can buy this at a hardware or plumbing supply store.

      Chock the other wheels with a large rock or a log to prevent the car from rolling.
      Remove the hubcap (if necessary) with a screwdriver. Many newer cars have hubcaps that don't require removal for access to the lug nuts.
      Use the lug-nut wrench to loosen the lug nuts on the flat tire (but do not remove them). To loosen a bolt or nut, turn counterclockwise. Remember: lefty-loosy, righty-tighty. If it doesn't come off easily, place the leverage pipe over the end of the lug-nut wrench and pull up rather than push down to avoid back injury. If one lug on each wheel looks different from the rest and the lug-nut wrench doesn't fit it, then you have locking lug nuts (to prevent wheel theft). Check the glove compartment for a special key that fits on this lug nut and makes removal with the lug-nut wrench possible.

      When all the nuts are loose, jack up the car, making sure the jack is vertical and well planted on the hard surface of the road (do not jack up a car on sand or dirt). You'll find diagrams indicating where to place the jack either in the car owner's manual or on a sticker affixed to the jack. Most cars have a small slot near each tire for the jack. Jack up the car slightly more than needed to remove the flat tire; the spare will be larger because it is full of air.

      Remove the lug nuts. Put them in your pocket or someplace else where they won't get lost.

      Take the flat tire off and put it in the trunk.

      Put the spare on. If you are unsure which way the wheel goes on, look for the air-pressure valve--it always faces out.
      Lower the car and remove the jack.Tighten the lug nuts again using the leverage pipe. Make them as tight as you can.

      Pop on the hubcap (if applicable).Put everything away neatly so it's ready for next time.

      Remove the chock, then drive to a tire shop. Most shops can fix flats while you wait, and it's usually inexpensive.

    Lake Avalon and the animals of Aluna, Anyone here made this journey?
    I quote author Steve Wilde
    "To arrive in the transdimensional world of the misty lake of Avalon, you have to be finished with the affairs of man and the struggles of light and dark, blame and recrimination; you have to step instead into the magical world of the Aluna animals that can think and act in magical ways that react to love and soft emotions; animals that work tirelessly to bring about the Renewal that awaits up ahead.
    It is a fairytale dimension of mythical beings except it is not a myth, it is real, and it is here right now, in our solid reality for you to stumble upon. Theirs is a real world just as our world is real, and the lake is at a real location, just a mile so up and in other places (some are in cities), are also real to see.The multi-dimensional celestial world has gradually threaded its way into our world like the fingers of God interlocking with the fingers of our frail human hand, weaving the speckled ambience of the Aluna through our soul

      Stuart Wilde says: The scattered Camelots are at specific geographical locations, they are usually very beautiful settings, but if you go there it all looks normal, you can’t see anything different. It’s just a pretty hill with a few sheep.

      I would say Glastonbury Tor would be one location to access Lake Avalon, but to get there you have to be able see the Morph.

      Stuart Wilde says: The third part of the journey is within the hyper-dimensional phenomena I call the Morph. I teach you to see it properly. Once you are no longer blind and you can see with new eyes, you can travel in the other worlds safely, “bye, bye Kansas”. These are not flights of fancy or pretending, it is literal, you straddle two worlds. If you can see the Morph just once, you will always see it. It’s a click of the mind nothing more.

      You may have tried it already, but make sure you dont have an anti-virus app going, or something like a registry/file monitor. Some installations will fail because there is a check going on that causes a problem in the install. With one part of it failing without the proper error, the install just sees that "it failed".

      That is the location for lap belts in those old cars.Yes they got in the way of rear passengers.They were a dealer option that most people didn't buy.They didn't have shoulder belts in those days,those didn't show up in cars until 70.Seat belts weren't even required to be used until mid to late 90's but were required as standard equipment by the 80's.

    local area connection doesn't have a valid ip configuration (2 network locations)?
    Alright so here's the issue.

    We have 1 router/modem in the house, 3 computers, 1 PC connected to the router by a standard cable and two laptops (1 PC and 1 Mac) using the wireless.

    The other day i start up the PC and it cant connect to the internet, i get this error

    "local area connection doesn't have a valid ip configuration"

    So I use my search-fu on google and find a bunch of threads about this problem with windows 7. Now what's weird is that my laptop (the PC) and the stationary are both running windows 7, obviously the Mac is not, but my laptop has no issues what so ever. Only the Stationary.

    After trolling the web for a while i think i find a solution, try a few things, and voila, the internet is working again (on the stationary). Only temporarily though. Now thinking that this was just a strange little window 7 problem i go downstairs to check the Mac, hmm same issue. Although on the mac i dont get this

    :"local area connection doesn't have a valid ip configuration"

    i just see that there are two LAN connections, just as i saw on the PC.

    So if anyone or anybody has any idea as to why my stationary PC and my Macbook are seeing 2 LAN connections (and having a problem deciding which one to use) and my Laptop is not an answer would be greatly appriciated.

  26. QUESTION:
    can diamond pin be used for location in threaded hole(M10)? can round pin be used? where i can get dimensions?

    • ANSWER:
      It doesn't sound ideal, ideally you'd use a straight hole for datum location, but it has been done. If necessary, it'd be best to insert a screw and locate off the screw, but it sounds backwards to go about it that way.

      A round pin would be better, you'd probably be making it primary instead of secondary which is probably more appropriate, but I'm just taking a stab in the dark not knowing the whole picture.

      If the threaded hole was truly being used for location, the ideal fastener might be a shoulder bolt or a bolt inside a dowel or something, and the shoulder bolt or dowel could be located inside a counterbore, and that counterbore could be used for your datum better than the threaded hole.

      As for the threaded hole it'd depend on the thread fit, there are minor diameter go/no-go gages out there for checking the threads, but not really intended for location. You could find dimensions in Machinery Handbook although it tends to favor inches over metric, so you don't always find all your metric data.

    How can i have a message in my archive that was not done by me?
    I had yahoo messenger logged on, but was not using it, Then a couple of days later I was looking at the message archive, and there was a message thread that was under my user name, but definately not done by me or anyone in the house. I originally thought maybe somebody was using my ID at another location, but I thought the archives could only be seen on the computer they were done on?

    • ANSWER:
      Yes, you are right, Message Archive (".dat" files located on your system) are encrypted and can only be viewed by the Yahoo! ID that created them.

      These archives are stored locally on your system, so the conversations held on that specific computer are only accessible from that computer.

      So for sure someone in your house has used your id and password to generate that message you saw in your Message Archive folder.

    how do you thread text between 2 different cells in Indesign CS3?
    If I had a 3x3 square (COLUMNS A, B, C; ROWS 1, 2, 3), how would I thread text in the following 3 cells: A3 to B1 to C2?

    I found this link to be helpful in threading text between cells on the same row (http://indesignsecrets.com/thread-text-between-table-cells.php). However, I want to know if there is a tutorial to do a "go-around-method" of threading text in Indesign on different locations of a table (since Indesign doesn't accomodate this function and Quark does).

    Any help would be great, thanks all!
    thanks for the effort but that isn't what I was asking:

    Think of a tic-tac-toe grid (represents the table) and the text flowing from the top left corner square to the middle column bottom square to the last column-middle square. Text can't be threaded within tables and I wanted to know a quick unconventional method to go around that.

    • ANSWER:
      Not sure I completely understand your question, but I'll have a stab at answering it...

      So let's say I have three text boxes, A, B, and C that you'd like to flow text between in order:

      - Use the selection tool (the black arrow) to select A
      - Notice there are two white squares along the edges of the selected text frame, one on the upper left, one on the lower right.
      - Click on the lower right box (this loads the selection tool, the icon will change to look like a paragraph)
      - Now click in the frame you'd like text to "flow to", the icon will change again, to a link.

      Now text frame A will flow text to frame B. Repeat to flow text from B to C.

      Hope that helps...

    i downloaded ftp class from http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;832679 i want to download average 500 mb daily automatically from my programm using threading from a number of specifid ftp locations.so now what changes i impose to my programm.pls help me its important for my career.

    • ANSWER:
      I have a couple of suggestions. First, I'd install a local FTP server to make sure that the problem really is in the code and not in the speed of your network. I've included a link to one server below, but you can find others using your favorite search engine.

      500MB seems like a very small amount of data. Are you sure you want to use multi-threading? Could you start multiple copies of your program? If you decide to go with threading, I'd upgrade to Visual Basic 2005 if you don't have it already - I included a link to the free version below.

      In VB2005, there's a new component for threading called BackgroundWorker. I've linked to one example of it's use below -- but MSDN has a lot of material on it, including examples.

    Torn between living near family or friends! Your opinion?
    I'm considering a move to either St. Louis, MO, or Dallas, TX, and I’m finding myself in a dilemma. The overwhelming majority of my friends live in St. Louis, but all of my family lives in the countryside near Dallas.

    I like St. Louis (where I went to grad school) much better of the two cities, but my family is giving me plenty of not-so-subtle hints that they would be really disappointed if I decided to move so far away. At the same time, my friends are relentlessly urging me back to STL! I feel really torn and would appreciate some opinions from people without axes to grind in the matter.

    So, what do you think? Have any of you managed to successfully thread this family/location needle?

    • ANSWER:
      I would always go with my family. Friends come and go, but family is there forever, and I mean if your family is a loving one. I do not understand very much your situation, but I am trying to figure out why they are split, friends on one side and family in other location. But as I said above, I would move close to my family. I know that I would be making new friends soon, but if I move close to my friends, I know I would not be creating new relatives.

      Good luck!

  34. QUESTION:
    How do i check the transmisson fluid on my 99 chevy blazer?
    It is a manual transmission, 4.3 L engine. There is no dipstick under the hood that i see. I noticed some threaded hubs under the vehicle on what i believe is the transmission (located directly under the shifter knob). Is this where i check and fill the fluid? If so, there is actually two locations i see where there are these threaded hubs. In one location the hubs are facing the passenger side of the vehicle, these two are closer to the front of the vehicle, but still located under the shifter knob. These take a very large allen key to remove. The other two threaded hubs are just a little further back, but facing the rear of the vehicle. These take a smaller allen key than the others. Also what kind of transmission fluid should i use?

    • ANSWER:
      There is no dipstick and you are correct, there is two plugs, one to drain it, and one above it to fill it. Take the top on out, if fluid runs out, its full, if not add some 80w90 gear oil until it runs out, then put the plug back in.

    Hi, so i plucky/tweeze my eyebrows at home, but they started looking very round, and unlike most who have more face lifting, and arched eyebrows, mines kind of sit down on my face. They have almost no shape, their basically two round lines.. Therefore its been about 3-4 weeks iv been growing them out.. not all the parts have come back, but most have. I still have a week of growth to go still! But i'm wondering if i need to go to a professional place to tell them i need the shape changed, or can i go to any general salon, that do eyebrows and just say I want my shape changed? I dont want to risk this.. So im just wondering if they will still do the job properly? Is it the same thing as going to something EXTRA HIGH CLASS, cause i dont have to much money to spare on this..
    Please give me some suggestions! Btw, im looking for surrey locations please! And if someone has any idea of whether waxing is better, or threading to change the shape to get more arch is better, do share! But the proper location is what I need help on! thanks!

      Hey so my eyebrows were hideous and i thought there was no hope in giving the bushy beasts a good shape...i went to an eyebrow threader (my 3rd time going) and she magically gave me the exact arched shape i wanted! now i get endless compliments from people who have seen my bushy eyebrows before AND people i just met..trust me, go to an eyebrow threader and tell them you want it arched and they will do what they gotta do to make it arched.

      Electric field E = F/q = 0.032 / 80E-3 = 0.4 N/C

      Weight of ball W = mg = .01 * 9.81 = 0.0981 N
      You need to specify direction of the thread to figure out the direction of the filed (simply saying hangs in equilibrium is not specific enough).

  44. QUESTION:
    How do I move a light fitting?
    I have a new build appartment with plasterboard ceilings. The light fitting needs to be moved a couple of feet.

    I can't take the floorboards up in the room above (the floor being concrete and the appratment not mine!)

    The difficulty I'm having is with how I'm going to move the power cable. I'm happy with installing the fitting and wiring it, but how do I get the power supply to the new loction? I can drill a new hole in the new location but how do I thread it through?

    I'd rather not take out a huge chunk of plasterboard and or have wiring running across the ceiling.

    Is there some kind of tool with a hook on the end that I send through the hole to fish the wire along with?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

      In Abu Dhabi I recommend Ivana's Salon Tel: 02-4453307. Her Salon is located across from Emirates Media. If this is to far for you, in Tourist Club Area you can visit Princess Salon Tel: 6440238. Both Salons are visited mostly by locals and you won't find any tourists. Therefore they also do not charge "tourists" prices.
      Ivana's Salon is much bigger than the Princess Salon. At Princess only one Indian Lady is doing the job. At Ivana's there are three or for.

  48. QUESTION:
    How can I fix my 2003 Honda Civic?
    My Honda was recently vandalized in my apartment complex parking lot. My bumper cover was ripped almost entirely off (now just barely attached by one connection on the passenger’s side), and the driver’s-side headlight assembly was smashed. The car is a 2003 Honda Civic LX 4-door Sedan (inherited from a relative.)

    I’m mostly concerned about replacing the headlight assembly and re-attaching the current bumper (which is basically intact). If you can help instruct me in this so I can do it myself, you have my extreme thanks.

    -The headlight assembly needs replacing
    -The headlight bracket is bent to all get out and needs replacing
    (‘headlight bracket’ is how a mechanic referred to it. I am referring to a metal bar/support, bent into a curve, which seems to rest underneath the headlight)
    -According to a mechanic I consulted, the radiator support was bent “up and back.” He wants to use a machine to bend it back into place.
    -I am not entirely willing to take his word for it. He seems to indicate that the piece should be entirely flat with no curves built in. The corresponding piece on the other side of the vehicle, however, seems to have some curves built in. I am not sure if this mechanic is referring to a more-than-normal curve, or if he is incorrectly assuming that the normal curve is a flaw to be “repaired”

    I have been able to find headlight assemblies for sale at many local auto shops. I have not found a listing for a “headlight bracket” yet, though, and I am wondering if this is the proper terminology.

    Can you tell me, or give me a link, to a guide that shows me how to:

    -Reattach the plastic bumper cover
    -Replace the headlight bracket (is this included when you buy a headlight assembly?)
    -Replace the headlight assembly (not just the bulb itself)

    UPDATE: I found a guide with instructions, but its photos are mostly close-ups and I’m not sure where to find those locations under the hood. Link to that instructive forum thread here:

    • ANSWER:
      Thats a lot of stuff, some quite complex, very hard to do yourself.

      If you can do it, obtain a manual on how to fix those parts, you may need to buy replacement parts

  49. QUESTION:
    Java experts :P lease answer this question?
    class NewThread extends Thread

    And in line-System.out.println("Child Thread "+this);,'this' shd return memory location of th.Instead it returns the thread name.Why?

    • ANSWER:
      Hi Rohit C, if you enable eMail contact in your avatar, you could get answers from the previous post of this code and question.

      Only Objects have methods(), var state, var value. Only Objects. A class is a template. You cannot have an Object without a template. You use the template to put the Object on the computer heap by using the keyword "new".

      Thread thread = new Thread("My_Demo");
      So, now, and only now, thread has start() available as:
      thread.start();

      There is a lot of confusion about the concept of "name" and the concept of "label". The "name" of Thread My_Demo is the "label" that Java tracks for you. If you must have the numeric address in memory of My_Demo, cast it to Object

      Object object = (Object)My_Demo;
      System.out.println(object.toString());
      And you get the Object[object@a23578...

      As it stands now, the code would give the first SysOut as:
      Thread[Demo Thread,5,main]

      Above, we have the Object (a Thread Object) and it's variables, from memory, in the "labels/names". If I cast to Object, I lose labels and get numbers (but WHY??? do that).

      The call to super() -- in your original question, not this one -- created a Thread OBJECT. Taking out the call to super(), you have no Object. Without an Object you have no method(), no vars, no state, no behaviour.

      In this example, you have mis-used "extends Thread" in the first line, because you never use it. Take off "extends Thread" and name the class something else because you have Thread t = new Object() <--of a type of Thread

      t is the "name/label". t is the Object(). t has the method()s, .states, .values, .behaviors(). Your class with the main() to reach t will have to do it this way:
      th.t.start()

Hair Services

Ayurvedic Treatment The Safest Way To Prevent Hair Loss Hair is, invariably, one of the most defining elements of our body. Health hair is the sign of a healthy body and adds a lot to a persons personality. Almost every one experiences hair loss some or the other time in their lives. Referred to as Alopecia in medical parlance, hair loss is usually the sign of some underlying disease and can be quite distressing. The use of Ayurvedic treatment has proven to be quite successful in preventing hair loss and giving you hair that is beautiful and healthy.

In Ayurveda, hair is considered to be a tissue which uses the same nutrients as the bones and is formed as a bi-product of the bone tissue. Hair types have been classified in accordance with the three basic body types Vata, Pitta, and Kapha.

Vata Body Type Generally dark, coarse, wiry, inky, and frizzy hair
Pitta Body Type Generally brown, blonde, light, fine, and silky
Kapha Body Type Generally dark or light, thick, heavy, wavy, and slightly oily

What causes hair loss?
The metabolic processing of the food we consume produces nutrient plasma, which nourishes the hair. According to Ayurveda, excess of Pitta dosha (heat) in the body is the chief cause of hair problems.

Some of the common reasons for hair loss are:
Hormonal imbalances - A high concentration of dihydrotestosterone (DHT) in mens hair follicles, or in women, both during pregnancy and after delivery, can cause hair fall.

At times, high amounts of sebum in the scalp clog the pores of the scalp and prevent nutrients from reaching the hair follicle, resulting in hair loss.

Inadequate nutrition or unhealthy diet

Stress, worry, lack of sleep, and anxiety

Long-standing diseases like typhoid, viral infections, anemia, surgery, etc., cause general debility which leads to hair fall.

Some medicines, like birth-control pills, anti-depressants, etc., including those used for gout, during chemotherapy against cancer, etc., cause hair fall.

Tying hair tightly pulls the hair from the follicles and cause traction alopecia.

Dandruff or fungal infection of scalp

Accumulation of dirt on scalp causes blocking of pores and weakens hair roots. This leads to hair fall.

How can hair loss be prevented?
Hair loss can usually be prevented by using basic Ayurvedic home remedies and treatments. Only aggravated cases call for the expertise of a doctor. Follow these simple steps and you will see the difference they make to the health of your hair.

Ayurvedic treatments always target the root cause of any problem and try to cure it completely. To prevent hair loss, it is essential that you identify the root cause in your diet or lifestyle that is causing the pitta dosha. Once you know whats causing the problem, try to give up or at least reduce the diet, habit, or activity responsible for increasing pitta.

To clean the hair, it is advisable to use a natural shampoo or soap that is not laden with too many chemicals.

Oiling and massaging of the scalp is highly beneficial in preventing hair loss. You should use coconut oil or mustard oil at least three times in a week. Certain medicated oils such as Mahabhringraj oil, Amla oil, and Arnica oil are also very useful.

After you have washed your hair, rub your scalp vigorously. This helps in increasing blood circulation and activates the sebaceous glands.

You can induce growth of hair by applying a paste of licorice (made by grinding it in milk) in the bald patches. Paste made of the seeds of lemon and black pepper may also be applied on the bald patches.

Make sure you consume raw vegetables, fresh fruits, salads, and green leafy vegetables on a regular basis.

The use of relaxing techniques such as yoga, pranayama, etc., can be quite effective in overcoming stress, anxiety, and sleeplessness the most common causes of hair loss in todays competitive world.

Try and avoid making hairstyles that pull the hair and consequently damage it.

People across the world are increasingly establishing their trust on alternative treatments such as Ayurveda to cure basic, everyday problems like hair loss. The home remedies prescribed by Ayurveda are easily doable, affordable and without any side effects. Jiva Ayurveda is one of the premier organizations providing Ayurvedic treatment for prevention of hair loss and other diseases and conditions.

    I have googled yahooed and yellowpaged but cant find any or atleast any with price lists on their websites.

    Can anyone help me with this?

    Thank you!

    I would appreciate a referral if possible.
    St. Clair Shores

    • ANSWER:
      If there is a salon in your area that you especially like, call there and explain. I know many hairstylists are willing to travel. What city are you in?

      Another option, ask people you know who's hairstyles you appreciate about who does their hair and contact the stylist. Finally, even ask a local church...they may know of a stylist in their congregation who would be willing. Many people are more than willing to help, and in these economic times, people are more willing to step out of their comfort zones.

    Why do hair professionals provide free hair coloring services to people sometimes?

    • ANSWER:
      For practice. They might have some trainees and offering you a free colouring is basically a way to teach them. However, there is always a danger that the hairdresser will do a bad job, but it can be a price to pay for a free new style.

      Or, for publicity. If they do a good job, your friend will ask and you'll tell them. Then your friend will tell her mother who will tell her sister who will tell her cousin who will tell her daughter who will tell her teacher and so on. Lots of people will find out about it at no cost to the hair place.

    how imperfections and conditions of the hair skin and nails can affect or limit services?

    • ANSWER:
      We don't understand exactly what you are asking. You need to clarify your question. One example I can think of is that grey hair does not accept dye the same way as hair that has not turned grey. Grey hair is also coarser than the same hair was before it turned grey.

  22. QUESTION:
    Do salons offer services that remove hair color?
    I dyed my brown hair black with a temporary dye in December and it never washed out or faded. I tried bleaching it but the bleach had no effect. My roots have grown in an inch or so now and I don't want two-toned hair for my upcoming senior portraits.

    Yeah I could call the salon but I'm not very social and I was wondering if anybody knew if a hairdresser would be able to remove or lighten the black hair?

    • ANSWER:
      Yes, and you are right in considering going to a salon for a "corrective treatment." What they use to correct color is generally bleach. They bleach your hair to remove some or most of the color, (it usually turns some kind of red or orange) don't fear, they then color your hair to blend it with your natural color or a color that you meant to or wish you had. Be sure you select a salon that is known for having good colorists. You'll be asking for corrective color.
      Best of luck!

  24. QUESTION:
    How can you spend or more in services in a hair salon?
    The hair salon where my mom goes (and takes me) is having a Promotional Mother/Daughter appreciation day. Even though I am her son, the salon computer (connected apparently to some corporate computer) keeps switching me back to Miss, not Mr because of my name. So the salon changes it and then the main computer changes it back. So any appointment card always comes to me as Miss anyway, one more reason I want to change my name. Now my mom wants to take advantage of this promo because she can get something like 0's in a perm and other things at less than half price if I get or more of stuff done, plus coupons too. She argued they made the offer in my name and hers and should honor it and the local salon agreed.

    I am growing my hair , so I only want a trim, but what would be okay for me to add that might make it past without being a big deal?

    • ANSWER:
      Highlights may be good (that's good for at least )

      You could ask for a hot oil treatment for your hair. This helps with the condition of the hair. Also a nice conditioner is very nice.

      Does the salon offer any other services? Would you be willing to have a manicure? No nail polish, they just fix your nails so they look nicely trimmed.

      Just a few ideas.

  25. QUESTION:
    what's the difference between adaptive, creative and phase two services for hair coloring at a salon?

    • ANSWER:
      i'm assuming you're talking about Paul Mitchell?

      adaptive are the students who are just new on the floor. they have the least amount of experience and their prices are cheapest.
      creative students are more advanced. they've been on the salon floor for about 6 months-1.5 years, and have the middle range prices.
      phase 2 is a group you audition into. the requirements are that you must be a creative student, and must be willing to dedicate the time to the extra classes they are required to take.

      if you're wanting to get your hair done, i'd suggest creative level. it'll save you money vs. going with a phase 2 student, and creative students are DEFINITELY experienced.

  29. QUESTION:
    I recently graduated beauty school for hair stylist.. how much should i charge for hair services?
    I will be renting a station at a small salon, as an independant consultant...

    • ANSWER:
      The correct rate will be what the market can bear. That is, you need to keep it low enough so that you are kept busy, but high enough so that you can make a decent living. Somewhere in the middle is the right price. Of course, when you raise your prices, you will lose some customers. But then you can spend more time with the customers you have left, and give better service. You will still make the same amount of money, but with fewer customers, and not be over-worked. Sometimes you will gain a few new clients when you have higher prices!

      Look around your area. Price accordingly. But evaluate your skills too. If you are a beginner, you might not be able to do as good a job as some more experienced operators. However, being new, you may have some of the latest techniques (depends on the school) and may attract a younger and more fashionable crowd.

      Set a price, see how it goes, and then make adjustments periodically to reflect the amount of time you spend on a service, and your skills. Take upgrading frequently to keep your skill and latest techniques up to current level. You have to be better than those around you so you can demand higher prices.

    Do you go to beauty schools to get your hair cut? For other salon services?
    I got my nails done at a beauty school once and found the whole experience unpleasant and didn't get the manicure I was after at all. But a couple of my friends get every thing done (waxing, haircuts, manis, pedis) at beauty school for super cheap. They swear everyone's supervised and so forth, so you're not going to end up looking ridiculous. It's cheap. But I have my doubts.

    • ANSWER:
      It depends on the beauty school. Go to the ones that prepare their students to work in the higher end salons (they'll teach precision cutting, for example - the others don't). They'll do a much better job.

    What hair dye product/ hair service should I try if I want to dye my hair without damaging it?
    My hair is really prone to split ends. I had massive split ends and dry hair after coloring my hair before. Now that my hair is healthy again, may I ask what hair dye product or hair service I can try to color my hair brown (from black) without damaging my hair? Is this somehow possible? I mean, I heard all hair dye will ruin your hair. Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      Sorry but all dyes other than semi, demi.permanent colors will damage the hair. Ask your stylists to use 10 volume which is the weakest amount of dye to lift the hair to a brighter volume. Maybe they are using too high in volume like 20, 30 and 40. Also remember to use a great shampo and conditioner to keep the hair heathy after getting the color

  45. QUESTION:
    How much would you be willing to pay for a hair dyeing service?
    I, like many other women, dye my hair myself. It is just too darn expensive in a shop or salon. My question is twofold:

    1) If there was a place you could go and bring your own hair dye kit, and have your hair colored for a nominal fee, would you be interested in this service? There wouldn't be any other services available. No cuts, no styling, etc. The only service would be the application of and rinsing of the hair dye.

    2) How much would you be willing to pay for this service?

    • ANSWER:
      I guess I would, but I'd have to be sure this person had experience and knew what they were doing. And the most I'd pay would be , not because I'm cheap, but because I'm already paying for my dyes.

  47. QUESTION:

    Will you stretch your appointments but still keep them with your stylist in the salon?

    Will you take on the hair cutting and coloring task at home?

    • ANSWER:
      For me.......I have a cold wave perm.........I can go from 3 to 5 months and do maintenance at home..........after that..........I should be able to afford to go to the salon.......for a re-touch.

      The most important part is doing maintenance to the hair between appointments to keep my hair in good condition.

    Can you market a business/service from your apartment? (I.e graphic design, or hair styling services)?
    I do not have a license for a service that I want to provide, and I would like to hand out business cards/flyers to people. Has anyone had this experience? How do you recommend this be done? Thanks.
    I dont' know if this makes a difference, but it would be very small like braiding someone's hair (they would call me and i can come to their house, or they can come to my apartment). No chemicals, and I wouldn't have more than 1 "client" every two or three weeks.
    But in terms of giving my address, I should not do this (for lease purposes)?

    • ANSWER:
      You most likely can't. In addition to your license you have to certify the property and most apartments are not zoned to run businesses. You are not even allowed to have a home based business there if people visit your home. You need to check with your city planners to know the exact specification for your town.

      Also, some businesses, hair styling in particular, require alot of special safety licensing due to chemical use, you have to provide a safe way of disposing of the chemicals, and you can't install special drainage systems into your apartment.

    I'm a 24 year old brunette that is looking for a hot new hair cut. Everyone compliments me on my long straight hair, however, I'm more of a fan of the short and sexy styles with some highlites. I've had short hair before and its very easy to wash, take care of, and style. If anyone knows of any good websites to look at for hair styles/ cuts please send it my way! I'm due for new look! :) Thanks!!

  4. QUESTION:
    What are good hair cuts/styles for naturally curly hair?
    I have really curly hair and its a little past my shoulders right now. I'm getting it cut soon but I just don't know what I should do with it. You can see my hair on my profile picture if that helps.

    • ANSWER:
      hey there! i know how hard it is to style/cut curly hair, for i have quite a natural thick curly mess atop my head ha ha. i just recently got my hair cut for my hair was just getting out of control. my dead ends were cut off and my hair was cut into long layers to even out the curls and thickness. my hair tends to create a pyramid look, which means the top of my head is flat and gets progressively thicker...having long layers really helps when having this problem...or in any curly hair situation :-) i love having curly hair and want to show them off as much as possible ha ha. so i really suggest that you ask for long layers...you'll look gorgeous!!

  5. QUESTION:
    What are good hair cuts/styles for a square face?
    My hair is a little past shoulder length. It is kind of thin. Please don't say layers because they make my face look really square and i don't have thick enough hair to pull them off.

    • ANSWER:
      Sociologically speaking, square facial shapes unconsciously denote power, strength, and intelligence. Personally, I love them, but I know that it can be very difficult to find a flattering hair cut for them.

      - The trick is to not try to hide the squareness. Instead of trying to hide it, try playing up different features, like your mouth or your eyes. It'll draw attention away from the squareness. But if you try to hide the squareness by covering up your face, your face will appear heavy and brooding.

      - Layers WILL help you, but there shouldn't be very much distance between the length of the layers. If the layers are properly cut, they will make your hair look thicker.

      - Try going for something that will make the hair naturally fall away from the face. It will make your face appear lighter and draw attention to the center of your face. Hair cuts don't always depend completely on the facial shape. The shape and thickness of the neck and the prominence of certain features all play a key role in determining the final outcome of a style.

      - You might try uploading a picture of yourself to myheritage.com -- it'll match you up with celebrities who look like you, and you can research those celebrities to get more ideas or inspiration for cuts! I use it all the time.

      - Curls that curl AWAY from the face will be very flattering, especially if your face has soft curves rather than angles. They'll also add volume to your hair, but your hair might not hold a curl very well. Rollers would be better for you than a curling iron.

      - If you could supply a link to a picture, I might be able to give you better advice. Often, facial shapes are combined, so there might be another aspect to your facial shape that should be considered. I have high spatial recognition skills, so I'm great at determining true face shape when others are very quick to lump people into a single category.

      Here are some flattering hair cuts I've found:

      1. Sandra Bullock -- angular face
      http://www.solarnavigator.net/films_movies_actors/actors_films_images/sandra_bullock_suede_shoes.jpg

      This next one is gorgeous. Do you see how the shortest part of her hair, her bangs, falls at her mouth? It brings eyes to her lips, another prominent feature that takes some of the weight off of the facial shape.

      http://jaded4good.files.wordpress.com/2008/07/sandrabullock_060706.jpg

      2. Emily Deschanel -- soft face

  7. QUESTION:
    What are some good scene hair cuts,styles and clothes?
    I need halp, my hair is to my shoulders, I CANT cut anymore of of it, bangs are to my lips, I need a product to make it look like its not dead,And Some nice clothes!

    • ANSWER:
      i'm guessing you mean "scene" as in the fashion statement?

      if not then ignore what i'm about to say XD

      well with your hair, all you need is loads of choppy layers, a comb, and some hairspray. then backcomb backcomb backcomb! to get the exact look you want, i'd experiment with your hair on a day when you arent going out, therefore youve got all day to play with it. and if it goes wrong it doesnt matter. if you wanna go a step further, go and buy yourself some extensions, clip in or glue in ones, preferably bright colours.

      if you live in europe, you can buy loads of good clothes from H&M divided section. leapord prints and hello kitty are popular with scene kids, as are bright colours, skinny jeans, hairclips, and lots of necklaces. buy yourself a big pair of sunglasses too.

      but most importantly, you should wear things your comfortable in, these are just stereotypical scene kid guidelines. but just keep experimenting with diffrent looks till you get the one you like.

      oh and p.s, don't change overnight. then you'll be called a wannabe/poser. things like this take time.

      good luck!

  21. QUESTION:
    What kind of hair styles/cuts fit a person with rounded face?
    I have thin hair
    lightish brown.
    its wavy (but i straighten it)
    about 5 inches or so past shoulders.

    *ADD PICTURES if possible.

    • ANSWER:
      Something like this?

      With a round face, you want to add fullness through the whole crown to balance out the bottom part of the face. You don't want to add fullness along the cheeks and jaw, which makes the face look rounder. You don't want something flat and sleek, which accentuates the roundness and does nothing to balance it. Hope this helps.

      Is this for prom?!?

      PS -- If you are thinking of going short, you can do that, as long as you keep the style full through the crown. That's the key.

    I work in a professional setting and am looking for a new hair cut or style that will be acceptable in the workplace, but still look young and fresh. (I am 23 yrs old). I have sholder length basically strait (a little wavy) hair. I am willing to lose some length, but I dont want a really short cut. What do ya'll think?

    • ANSWER:
      Check out the hair cuts on www.matrix.com

      sephora.com has a beauty school section. The focus is on makeup but the models have nice hair cuts and you can get ideas for a totally pulled together look.

      Allure & InStyle are good sources for hair ideas.

      You might consider getting a few layers to give your hair some shape and to frame your face differently when you blow dry your hair straight.

      If you are good with updos and low ponytails, then keep your hair as long as possible for maximum versatility.

      Since you have wavy hair - stay away from short bangs. Too much styling commitment involved.

  33. QUESTION:
    Hair cuts and styles for oval shape face?
    Does anybody know any cute hair cuts or styles for Long Oval face and shoulder lenght hair? You can give me links or pictures.
    My hair used to be long and my natural hair is straight as heck I then chopped it short and it was cute but now i am wanting long again (my hair grows really slooooow). But with my face shape you shouldnt have long straight hair becuase it will make your face look longer. I have been looking for good haircuts and styles for about a year and a half now. ..Anybody know any sites or have any way to help me?

    • ANSWER:
      Oval is the most ideal shape to have in face or eyes any cut will look good. When in school to become a stylist we were taught to make the face look oval with make-up and cuts. So if you have oval love it and wear what you like. As far as the long oval try a cut that will frame starting at your lower cheek. Try a long layer bob. Maybe put some big curls when styling.

  37. QUESTION:
    Good hair cuts and styles for brown hair an blue eyes?
    I'm dying my hair medium brown and I have blue eyes. Right now its about 2-3 inches past my chest (boob) hahah I straighten it pretty much every day so what kinda cut and length (bangs? No bangs? Short? Long? Etc) would be good for me? I have moderately thin hair and a good body. If that changes anything. Haha. So basically any ideas help. Please none of those goth looking styles. Hahah oh by the way I'm 13/.

    • ANSWER:
      I suggest getting long layers, and getting you hair angled. This will create a little bit of a side bang. This hair cut will compliment your eyes soo much!

  40. QUESTION:
    Are there any salons that are good at doing scene hair cuts and styles?
    Right now my hair is pretty plain jane... but im sick of it. I think that my personality matches a scene hairstyle and i think they look awesome. But I dont wanna go to just any hair salon by me because i dont think they would understand what i want.. and i dont want my hair to be completely destroyed. i live in Lemont Illinois, but if you know of any hair salons that are good at scene hairstyles in Illinois or a state close to the border let me know!

    • ANSWER:
      I am doing the same thing. I found alot of hairdressers, but none that can do scene hair. You have to look for the youngest group of hairstylists to do it because they learn the latest hair trends.
      Like, my mom is a hairdresser, but she doesn't know how to do scene hair because they never taught her that back in the day.

      If there is a mall somewhere, the ones in the mall should be able to do it.
      Just bring in a picture, ASK them first if they think they can do it.
      If they're not sure, don't bother ruining your hair. Just keep trying different malls. Have your mom take you to salons close to home and bring a picture before making an appointment to make sure they can do it.

  41. QUESTION:

    Popular hair cuts/styles in England?
    I really love hair, like colouring and styling and cutting. My hair is a little longer than what would be considered medium length but isn't considered long. I'm in love with the English style, especially their hair styles. I've noticed there is a lot of almost hobo chic looks, teased, fringes, and what not. I was just wondering if anyone has any links to English inspired hair cuts or styles? I'm getting my hair cut soon and i was just wondering. I always get my hair cut really choppy and layered all through out my hair. I don't really want to lose any length either, my hair is dark, light, and platinum blonde. I have blue eyes, and an oval face. Any help anyone?

  47. QUESTION:
    How can we approach a hair professional where we can ask suggestions and hair styles/cuts suitable for us?

    • ANSWER:
      It should always depend on what you like, your face shape, and your body type. Some hairstylist can be biased if they have a preference for short or long hair, so you might want to stay away from hairstylist who like to suggest only short or long haircuts. My cousin is a hairstylist who prefers short hair, so she always tends to suggest a lot of short hair for people. It isn't going to help YOU if they're always suggesting the styles they prefer.

      You can most certainly find long and short hairstyles for all face shapes, and people who tell you different are probably just being biased. Stick with what you like, because others (including professionals) like to give biased opinions on what they prefer on people.

    What are the best hair styles for girls with short hair cuts?
    I ahve a hair cut like mia farrow from rosemarys baby..but wht else can i do with it....any advice

    • ANSWER:
      That is probably the best haircut of all times. To keep the look you should have it trimmed regularly at least once a month. You want to keep it cleanly cut around your ears. It is a very stylish haircut, you coould hel and create a sleek or messy look, but really, it is best left just side parted. It is a very nice understated look that shows a lot of self confidence. Stay with it.

      Those sites are extremely informative

      As for hairstyling, I seriously stress using natural shampoos. All those ordinary shampoos have chemicals that damage your hair, making it very hard to style. It saves you money in the long run

      Use baking soda weekly to get rid of styling product gunk

      Aloe vera makes good hair gel, mix it with water and some jojoba oil and you've got yourself some hairspray.
