Treebraids- Pros and Cons Howcast Response and Hair

See my new youtube video entitled: Treebraids- Pros and Cons Howcast Response and Hair. This video is in response to the Howcast video. Unfortunately the presenter does not know too much about treebraids and gives a first impression that is not true of treebraids. If you are new to treebraids please be advised that treebraids are so much more. In this video response I show before and after of mild to severe hairloss before and after solutions:

Another video I uploaded shows some recent Treebraids client installs. In that video I show a client whose hairline has improved significantly thanks to treebraids:

Ladies treebraids and hairloss solutions are my life's work. Don't let ignorant 'philosophers' steer you away from treebraids. Don't let 'braiders' who are just in it for the money and with no innovative solutions to offer you, dissuade you from getting treebraids. See some more amazing innovative work done using treebraids:

It is appropriate here to address what is happening out there with braiders that do not upgrade their skills and thus confuse the general public:

It is not ok to install boxbraids on a client's head when they ask for treebraids.

It is not ok to install crochet braids on a client's head when they ask for treebraids.

It is not ok to tell a client that treebraids are not possible with straight hair- think!


It is not ok to tell a potential client that some types of hair "shed"- shedding is reserved for weft or track hair extensions.

Remember, a braider creates a manual weft on a clients scalp in the process of treebraiding or adding strands of hair. If shedding occurs it is the braider's fault, not the hair. It's just a strand of hair at a time attached to braids. Therefore it is THE BRAIDS that were incorrectly connected, thus causing slippage when the client touches the strands or runs her hands through her hair.

It is NOT ok to deceive a potential client by saying there are cabs available at the train station stop yet YOU know no cabs want to go to that part of town, leaving the client stranded for hours.

It is NOT ok to tell a client that you have good quality hair when its crappy hair. Such hair should only be reserved for a client that has no money to buy her own hair and if not for that hair could not get her hair done at all. Even so...

It is not ok NOT to offer excellent quality hair OPTIONS and service.

It is not ok to tell potential clients that certain hair textures are too silky to braid- upgrade your skills instead.

It is not ok to tell a potential client that innovative, patent pending Double Breasted(SM) treebraids with NoSho(SM) Invisible Part is something that does not exist just because your lazy ass is not innovative. It's such a shame but some "braiders" are just in it for the money, won't help their clients, just one excuse after another not to excel themselves.

It is not ok to tell a client to bring all her children along, that there is a park nearby when there isn't!

It is NOT ok not to know the craft you expect to receive money from.

It is NOT ok to be so desperate to try and book clients by hook or crook- they will not say nice things about your errant ways and will take offense to the sad tactics.

It is not ok to belittle others achievements and patent(s) pending.

When my new client told me about the above, how horrendous the lies were, and how she trusted me instead, my spirit soared- a smile escaped my lips and I burst out laughing so unexpectedly that I was reminded I AM a big deal! The client said within 10 minutes of speaking with me she felt MORE comfortable than she ever felt speaking with this 'braider' from NY. She went further to state that the fact that I offered Paypal payments was a big plus. I don't know about you, but payment type options are excellent for a real small business to have. Paypal has reduced time wasters and made my appointments more efficiently run, leading to peace of mind for both the client and the business owner. Yes, cash payments are still available.

There is nothing more reassuring for a potential client than to have ALL their questions answered, and intelligently. Someone lost a high powered attorney who just had too many questions for their liking and asked: "Are you a braider?" Enough with attacking good solid potential clients already. If such braiders as I have just described don't want potential clients to get straight treebraids, or silky textured braiding hair like remy hair, these braiders should just say they don't know how to do them just yet.

Training is available- there is no shame in admitting guilt.

It is not ok to dissapoint a client by 'doing your own thing' when a client shows you a picture of a client wearing my NoSho(SM) and Invisible Hairline treebraids.

Enjoy- give me your feedback comments and questions. Thanks a bunch.
