When you worked out before, did you feel the need to wash your hair? If so, do the whole kit-n-kaboodle, with the #18 SOS (it’s fine used on a sweaty scalp). If you don’t want to have a full shower, simply use #26 Chillout to detox post-workout and wait to wash in the morning. The […]
Some of you are applying way too much pre-treat, and too high up, not knowing why we do it. The idea is to end up with an even texture all over, adding nutrients where wear has taken place (usually old ends, and maybe a bit on the longer surfaces if needed). Definitely do not pre-treat indiscriminately […]
Am I required to use specific types of Horn Combs for specific jobs? Can I comb through my hair with any of the combs or do I need to use a certain type?
Absolutely! There are no restrictions for use, other than that the comb you use for scritching needs to be one of the finer ones (regardless of the thickness of your hair). The categories we use are just options – the most common usage of the different combs.
Should I use #12 Protein Prescription Spray when my hair is fragile after I had chemical damage from some processing?
Yes, but #12 Protein Spray is only needed once in a while, for before or after seriously damaging chemical work (such as relaxing, foil highlighting, etc.), or once every few months on newly processed hair as a reinforcer, or when Louise Marie recommends it for a specific situation (hence the name “Prescription Spray”). Never use #12 […]
You should be pre-treating (that’s the overnight one on dry hair, where you wash as usual in the morning) from the bottom up by working in your pre-treat product – massaging upwards, and then smoothing in a downward motion, layering with water. Focus on needy areas and ends (which are always needy) first and go up as […]
No, you don’t need to rinse out your pre-treat before #18-ing. It is usually dried by morning and doesn’t goop the scalp at all. The coast should be clear for a clean application of #18, and any sweat is OK to Scritch over.

I’ve been told that I have “dry hair” – why don’t you make “products for dry hair” labeled as such for my condition?
Are you decidedly, categorically DRY? Dry hair, as far as the hair products marketing racket goes, is a selling category (a symptom rather) and not a permanent condition. The mass-market products sell you a product that keeps you IN that category, so they can continue to market to your type. ‘Dry hair’ CAN BE and is […]
Because the nature of our products are so different than other lines, ours need to be used together for the best results. Our shampoos and conditioners (link opens new tab) were carefully and specifically made for each other, and interact together like a marriage or match made in heaven, therefore they are sold together.
Sure, I’ve heard it used for a rather different feeling, not as shiny and soft – I’d rather the #10-Bs myself. I can see it being used to slick hair back to dry hard, instead of gel or hairspray, for anyone, not just curly. I’ve tried it on clients myself. With this one, if it […]
Good question, and the answer is YES! I call that a re-juicing or the Double-Dip Trick. This is how you do the Double-Dip Trick: Apply conditioner as usual in shower. Flexipick. After that, right after Flexipicking (according to instructions) and before rinsing out in the shower, add a drop or so more conditioner (Double-Dip Trick, […]
I try to teach the client to learn to recognize ‘satisfaction’ by using what it takes. Everyone’s hair is different and has different times and phases where it needs to be respected and listened to – catered to. Seriously, if you must measure your conditioners, I’d say a good tablespoon or more of #10-A or #10-B’s […]
Yes, because it is essential to the proper functioning of the water-conditioner exchange, as it is layered by strokes. We have taken the responsibility of providing a Flexipick (link opens new tab) for you so it works in an optimized way.
First, let us know you’re coming. A) You can pick up a Beginners Kit (link opens new tab) in person and try on your own to learn how to use online with the tutorials. or B) You can pick up a Beginners kit in person and learn online with the tutorials along with a near-future appointment […]
Quickly dash that area of your hair or the Flexipick itself under the shower stream and continue. Repeat this little trick as needed. It removes foam when your hair has finished eating the good out of that conditioner. It also rinses necessary new conditioner from above that rough point onto that needy area. For detangling, […]
If you’re coming from a long way it’s recommended but not imperative to have a head start on learning how to use things properly. If you’re getting colouring or highlighting by us then yes, for 2 weeks prior to your appointment for best results.
Longhairs® trademarked quality hair therapy, scalp therapy, split end therapy, and even regular trims are very different situations that any salons’ quick-fix is a minimal snip off the ends – or cutting off the length you are working so hard to increase. Typical salon trims are often going to cause breakage, wear, and a need […]
