This is a necessary conversational piece that I feel privy to have with my peers and consumers who wears braids.
We have to get some logical insight about the market, time, products, and Braider’s experience. Many represent themselves as Braider’s without the respect of braiding industry or natural hair industry.
Let’s have Hair Talk Over Tea ☕️ Weekly discussions on my platform starting with my Braid Series this Monday.
•Help unveil the do’s and don’t
•Learn what should be acceptable during a professional service
•Help you know when to take your leave in peace
•Common mistakes Braider’s make while adding hair
•Product knowledge •Pricing
•How long to leave a braid style in your hair.
•How to properly cleanse the scalp while in braids
•How to pretreat the synthetic hair
•Allergic reactions to the treated fibers
Ooh I will touch on each bullet point at a time. This braid series will be lit and I want you to engage and bring along a friend.
Q&A is perfect for this conversation so grab a note 📝 pad and pen and maybe take notes or jot down your question for me to answer.
It’s time to talk about it!

Make sure you take care of your #kidshair and be sure not to let the #Braider #braid their #hair too tight. It’s unfortunate that #kids are left alone feeling like they can’t speak up to the #hairstylist allowing them to know it hurts beyond measures. Some #parents will tell the kids to sit through it, but I like to have an I understanding with my #kidclient. I tell them to use code words like I need a break, raise their hand 🖐🏿, or just simply say that hurts. The comfort has be between me and #client so I recommend the parents to release their trust in me and allow me to do my job with the child feeling comfortable with my their #labraider #lahairstylist #lahair #botanicalsevenhairtea #hairservices #naturalhairstyles #shawnéreddic #sbshairstudios
I love helping others have a better understanding about what products they should use or at least try outside of the melting pot if #naturalhairstyles or #naturalhairproducts. This product @lovelottabody is famous and goes back centuries. Our new generations are impressed by products that are working against the #healthyhair concepts and #holistichair care. I share #lottabody with you because it is one product that has a multilayer of goodness that we shine away from. Each #client gets this product sprayed in their #hair during the #blowdry service prior to any other #styling #hairstyling #stylinghair. The reason is it represents what it states! I like to practice what I preach and preach what I want others to practice so I’m sharing a helpful #hairtip with you today!
My girl @drkariwill is a #celebritystylist #hairstylist whose knowledge for #braids and #Haircare is beyond qualified. She has a backing in #Trichology as well has sat on the State Board of Cosmetology in California. She has two #salons, A list of celebrity #clients, traveled on many panels, creator of her own product line Ann Carols and more. This is just what I know about my peer from personal engagement and support. Now when I talk about my braid series coming up this will be in topic. 🍃🍃🍃🍃💕💕💕💕
Dr. Kari Williams’s has allegedly charged $500 and was tipped $200 for this #braidservice. Now this is op topic to my discussion coming up. The difference with this is I’m sure the hair used is #humanhair which is complicated to deal with. The length is the hair is where it cost more. The size is a factor to how we charge and I’m sure she shampooed, conditioned, and treated her clients hair. Now this could be well worth $300 and up and it depends on the clientele. 🍃🍃🍃🍃🍃🍃🍃🍃
Let’s have some Hair Talk Over Tea ☕️ IGTV discussion coming soon! #labraider #labraids #braidinghair #braidstyles #braider #braiders #botanicalsevenhairtea #naturalhairstyles #hairservices #diyhairstyle #sbshairstudios #shawnéreddic

Anti-microbial, antiseptic ingredients and also known as high grade oils. 🍃🍃💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕

Wait for it! There’s so much more we have to talk about when it comes to braids. Keep in mind I am a #braider and I’m doing a IGTV series on braids and will have some clients, customers, and braiders speak out on this topic. This will be a series of conversations so stay tuned and tag someone to tune in. #labraids #labraider #braiders #feederbraids #feedinbraids #crochetbraids #individuals #braidinghairstyles #braidinghair #stitchbraids #braids #naturalbraids #atlbraids #naturalhairstyles #hairservices #botanicalsevenhairtea #sbshairstudios #shawnéreddic
We are still making History. Changing Laws and setting the tone to respect the culture you want in on, steal from, claim as yours, capitalize on, and mock.

In New York City, it is now illegal to racially discriminate based on hair. According to the Wall Street Journal “It seeks to put an end to policies that restrict or ban natural hair and hAirstyles closely connected to racial, ethnic, and cultural identities...
This is law is SO important to my practice as many patients feel like they have limited hair styling options due to work restriction. Some of these styles worn repeatedly can cause hair loss. .
As dermatologists treating hair loss it is key that we contextualize hair and what it means to each person. Recommendations on the type of medications, how to use medications, how and when to wash the hair, and hair styling options, etc. MUST take the into account the individual and associated ethnic background, aesthetic goals, family and work demands, and other lifestyle considerations.
Afro-textured hair has a long and rich history. Traditional African cultures would use various hairstyles to differentiate social and marital status.
"“In the Wolof culture of Senegal, young girls who were not of marrying age partially shaved their heads to emphasize their unavailability for courting. Likewise, a recently widowed woman stopped attending to her hair for a specified mourning period because she was not meant to look beautiful to other men, and an unkempt coiffure in almost every West African culture was anathema to the opposite sex.” Source: Byrd, A. D., & Tharps, L. L. (2014 - Revised). Hair Story: Untangling the roots of Black hair in America. New York: St. Martin's Press.
Thanks, NY!! I hope this law passes in other states.

I remember I used to work all day and all night when I first started out as a #hairstylist. I didn’t know any better. I did what I saw the other #lahairstylist doing thinking that was the way. I created a pattern that was before me as an example. I then added a 6th day to my work week. Thinking I had to go it, go get that money 💰. In my head I was fed to hustle and hustle hard. I had my girls in a 24 hour daycare with a very loving women. This was in my early days of doing #hair. One day I got sick from over working, one day I left the salon of 24 operators, one day the lightbulb 💡 clicked on and the Holy Spirit revealed to me I needed a balance in my life. For the first 5 years I ran myself raggedy, never taking vacations, not trusting the money would be there, just plain scared to live and operate differently from those who showed me the wrong way. 🍃🍃🍃🍃🍃🍃
Getting my own #salon and creating a system that was ran by Jesus my manager, boss, seer, provider, and mentor was enough. I settled in to a new mindset that set me free. I realized I didn’t have to chase money 💵 money was attracted to me easily and effortlessly. I took a coaching class to get the formula, I went back to the days I was a manager at Hot Dog On A Stick, I incorporated my accounting skills from Mercury Air Group, I developed confidence from my college education, and I soar. I trust that my vision was going to manifest and bring forth what I thought I was lacking. I begin to visualize owning the entire building where I opened my salon. Two years later the owner approached me and offered to partnership with him. I acquired the back of the building and now I lease out 5 salon studios, I manage my property, I share the wealth, and I teach others to live up to their full potential.
My point is: come from out of hiding and reach towards those things your heart desires. Set a goal, see the vision, and live your reality. It’s a process you can and will endure. It’s been 9 years since I flew the coop and started to fly my own plane ✈️ God has enlarged my territory, increased my faith, gives me an abundance in money, and trust me with His business. You got this!
I may not be able to control what other people do or say but I can maintain what I allow in and how I respond. Walking away from toxins in all shapes and forms while welcoming my newness that you , you, you, or you can’t take from me. It’s all about the inner being that has been cleansed. Keep walking Shawné until you get far enough away from bullshit, back stabbers, naysayers, and fake people. Wait hold up although I’m saying deuces ✌️ I’m still going to pray for you because I won’t hate you I’ll just pray you through from a distance. Am I my brothers keeper? Yes, I am! I keep a smile on my face and greet my enemies because God says to keep you closer. Don’t trip I’m not going through anything I’m just coming out better and even more powerful in Christ than last season. Remember I posted I am enough 💕🍃 That means I don’t need an approval to be qualified. Let the whisperer whispering whisper😉
My Kylie told me “there was a load lifted off of her she felt lighter”. I praise God for working in her and on her. These teenage years are complicated but with a prayer warrior mother, God believing , anointed and highly favored mom she’s going to get attacked by the adversaries. They want to use her to get to me, but I teach my children to pay attention to those things that strike and attempt to take you out of character, out of position, and in your own hell on earth. I teach them how to fight a spiritual warfare, when to drop to their knees, and read the Bible. See it’s a target 🎯 on her back and it’s because she’s anointed with a gift of prophecy she has to learn to walk into. My children are cut from the cloth and God will call on them too! She’s going to be alright, she just has to get experience in the world knowing that she is not of the world 🌎 baby steps will heal her mind, body, and spirit. I’m just grateful she recognizes it’s God and not me or herself doing all that she sees, feels, and hear. Hallelujah to deliverance and being free 🌹🌹🌹
We rose 🥀 🌹we blossom through the heartache and pain. He lives.
Amazing 😉 God is speaking loudly to me! I don’t like suffering in silence. Therefore, I use it as a form of ministry to help others see life in the prospective of you’re never alone. What may appear to be clear skies is only because a storm ☔️ just passed or one is on the way. We are never alone and loneliness is of the devil

Look how the universe works! I just got this in my DM from my good ass friend/sister who watched my video said look at this.
Confirmations come all the time from God that is how he lets you know it was Him speaking to you and that you’re not crazy or off track. She sends me this note 📝 that says exactly what I preached in my video but using a different metaphor. Come on y’all we all have potential but is potential enough? Let’s stop focusing on how much of the same thing already exist and move into what we are suppose to procreate. Stop loosing faith in yourself and trust that you are enough and have enough to be great. 🍃💕🍃🍃🍃🍃💕🍃
True story I created a herbal hair tea ☕️ and two oils @botanical7healingtea and she is creating her first oil as her product but what does that mean? Should I be mad at her or jealous, saying negative remarks? Hell no.... I message her and said stay focus and don’t give up! Support has to be given to help us reach the top. That was another video I made asking do you share the wealth of blessing to help someone else get to where they should be? Happy freaking Sunday 💕💕 thanks sis @mssolidasaroc

I wonder how these #curls #naturalcurls #naturalhairstyles are going to turn out.
Many times my clients will opt to leave a #wetset #naturalstyle in and #diyhairstyle #diy do it themselves to preserve the #hairstyle for the occasion. I oblige and cross my fingers 🤞🏾
I said self... you may think you should be farther and that’s okay. However, your footsteps are ordered by The Lord. Along the journey I may have questioned God about where I am going or how I am going to get there. His response probably was to “TRUST THE PROCESS”. With my curiosity I more than likely asked again and again and then decided along the way I wanted to add to my mission because I’m an artist, innovator, producer of my life. Well that is when I more than likely shifted the process and slowed the pace down of where and when I was suppose to arrive.
If you’re following me then you understand I was and am the reason why I didn’t arrive at the destination God intended for me to because I got in my own way and my own head adding more to my plate, distracting myself, waiting on someone else to catch up, fearing the process, not having enough faith, pushing away instead of going towards it, sight seeing someone else’s life, wishing to be somewhere else, not focus, drained, not trusting, and on and on and on.
Something clicked inside of me and it wasn’t because it’s 2019. It was because I made my mind up to get back on track, give other people their crosses, move patiently, accept my mistakes, believe that I am enough, trust the dryness that comes along, praise God while I am in it, accept my calling, and be the spirited woman I am.
I am starting over but finishing what I started!
