Treebraids Won Over Crochet - Clients Review Both!

Isn't it wonderful to have a style that lasts as long or longer than expected? For a while now when a client has extremely short hair, instead of the required small braids to "catch" the small strands of their own hair- causing that client to sit for longer, resulting in a more expensive style, I had been recommending crochet braids. Areas of hairloss where other sections of the scalp and hair are perfectly normal were recommended a combination technique. Let's face it, severe hairloss requires a combination of different techniques to lower the cost, and time for a client.

WHY?:
Why after decades of offering my long sought after techniques for short hair and hairloss did I start to recommend crochet braids? There was a trend for quick and cheap styles that could not be denied. However, some clients did not want the big hair that is inevitable. Not everyone is a fan of big hair. Trying to trim down the volume of big crochet hair is a time consuming losing battle. Treebraids volume can be pre-planned and controlled while installing. So now when crochet braids are offered to either existing or new clients over the phone, I hear "Oh no, I don't like crochet braids I want treebraids." Fear no more I have STOPPED suggesting it. However, there are exceptions: completely bald crown, for example.

I am absolutely amazed every time, in the age of crochet, that treebraids are preferred instead. But of course, when intricate hairlines are to be 're-designed', you don't call for the butcher. You find a skilled person in that craft who knows what they are doing, loves people, and will take good care of your hair. From having strongly recommended treebraids, to recommending crochet, and now back again based on feedback. Wow, who would have thought that treebraids would win out.

As you, my existing clients may already know, intricate work that looks seamless is a much slower process with treebraids, but you get what you pay for.

Here are the clients who still prefer treebraids:
  • Money is no object (real hair extensions usually used, though optional)
  • Has controlled hairloss (slight thinning)
  • Has severe hairloss
  • Higher level ranking personnel or business owner
  • Trusts treebraids for special occasions (can customize style)

Finally! Goal Achieved For Treebraids, Hair extensions, and African Hair Braiding Site

Hello ladies, welcome to yet another blog.

GOAL DIGGER

Wow! Only this past May we blogged. Oh oh, I see an improvement here. Dare I say that every other month at least from now on, you can expect to read a blog entry from me, Treebraids by Kaale? Oh goodness, I believe once I make this statement, it should be a goal. Woah! Let's not get ahead of ourselves says I with a smile. This is definitely ambitious of me, especially at this time when everything online needs upgrading.

I remember when blogging on one platform or another was a weekly thing. It was amazing. My thoughts flowed right through my fingers and created hubs of knowledge shared worldwide. I also wrote articles more often. So why am I going down memory lane? The now upgraded main website www.upalmit.com gives me life. It's my baby of sorts.

ITS OKAY TO GET THERE LATE

It's okay to achieve a goal late if it cannot be helped. Especially when there are so many other goals to be achieved on the to do list that require almost daily attention. In life we don't always get it all.

MY BABY

Imagine you had a baby that needed something that you could not provide for. In real life that sucks! Well that was this website. Developers wanted thousands of dollars to upgrade it from the text link navigation based website that it was. Almost two decades later, its finally done. And it hardly cost anything close to that fortune.

LEARNING TO PUSH THROUGH THE NOISE

I have learned, and still continue to learn, that the shiny toys are not always the best if they cannot be achieved. The only shiny toy I need are my skills and experience, and my wonderful, lovely clients who need hair replacement MAGIC fingers. Also, that if one truly desires a shiny toy and works long enough, it just might happen. It was always in the back of my mind. I wanted more for the site and every opportunity, would push a little harder for it. However, the truth is that there were other things more pressing, and more desirable, as mentioned in the previous post, that needed to be taken care of.

Wow! We are finally here with a website that no longer looks 'Mom and Pop'. To some, this is not an achievement, but for me and some of you readers who understand where I am coming from, this next level is HUGE. So now upalmit.com is all grown up and is all about hair, training, and educating, with a Hair Club. Even got its own grown up affiliate website now.

To those customers and fans who have waited so long to see this transition, I know you got to be like- finally! Right?

My sentiments exactly.

MAY GOD BLESS YOU TO SEE YOUR GOALS THROUGH TO FULFILLMENT

Let's keep pushing on. No matter what goal we have listed on our to do list, no matter how big the goal(s) may seem, let's pray for the strength, and health to see it through. God bless you all. If you are reading this, I hope that God blesses you immeasurably. Gives you the strength and the patience to see your goals through to fulfillment with many rainbows/ opportunities. God give you the faith to carry on. You can achieve what you set your mind to do- even if doing it alone. Or if it takes seemingly forever.

Follow your dreams!
