Yes! Brushing with our Longhairs® Kinder Brush with a puff of our #11 Magic Spray on dry Kinder brush dry hair actually removes dead hairs as well as gently exercising roots by pulling evenly. Dead hairs left there will spoil your curl long term, so yes, but only before pre-treating at night. Overnight your hairs […]
All hair, not just problematic or textured hair, gets best results with 5 latherings. only woth our products5 latherings is better than 4, and 4 latherings is better than 3 – for all kinds of reasons If it does no harm whyyy not?. Twice? Only if you’ve already washed that day. Three latherings and more […]
Hot rollers are probably the least harmful of the heat tools, and it’s hard to do anything wrong with these when using our products. Hot rollers are definitely better to use than a styling tool that gets hotter and hotter; hot rollers go in hot and cool down. With almost all of the hair care products that […]
Pull your hair smoothly across the back of the head from the side where your swirly crown resides and over to the opposite side. Try switching sides periodically for a few nights each month to rest the roots. The Pocahontas-style ponytail (also called a caterpillar braid) should be terry-tied every few inches starting right behind the ear […]
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 […]
No, that’s only with vegetables and macaroni! We have a perfectly-timed product closure time and effects that other (build-up) products need to be forced into. Just say “NO” to cool rinses! It is not recommended as we get plenty of shine without it. And no, doing it anyway (the ‘more is better’ approach) will not […]
Right before it dries, twist your hair in one single twist (or two piggies), and hang it down your back wrapped in a zip-up fleece hoodie, and by the time you get to work, the kick will be out your of the curl. Ask me to show you in person how the African Queens solve questions […]
No! Please! We’re not shooting drugstore shampoo commercials here, so let’s look at this logically: this is done for show on TV. It doesn’t work for long hair; it’s what shorthairs do. If you do wash this way, your hair will tangle badly, so please don’t stack the hair when you shampoo (or condition for […]
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 […]
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, […]
Yes, that is perfectly ok.
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 […]

One of the reasons Louise Marie Longhairs went to all the effort to create and share her products is just to make you happy, and if you are happy we are happy too! When you’re that different, you have to! Our instructions were designed to produce the very best results (if you came to the studio, she […]
I don’t feel it is; here’s why: I am concerned about your being exposed to elecromagnetic fields around electronics at night, especially around the head (e.g. cellphones or any electricity) while it is plugged in, turned on or switched off. It’s bad for your cells, and your sleep pattern. Let’s try to substitute something else, same […]
Personal opinion: I like it; it’s pretty. My professional advice: on the average person has a very narrow window of success. Henna is natural, and it does many things – some good, but mostly I find that it’s quite intrusive. Henna does have it’s purposes, but only on virgin and hair in immaculate condition. Henna is not […]
A little help within reason, but hairstyling is NOT included in products prices. In fact, support was not calculated into any of our products prices, but she helps because of your common goal. The Non-Salon appointment is how and where members’ hair is done. Not only is it a little difficult to manage, it is […]
I’m confused… I see a set of 15 shampoos (MP kits), but this is not what I’m used to. How does this work?
Works very well! (No apologies for the untypical-ness of our ways!) The ‘palette’ of these 15 different shampoos belongs to the largest kit – not the simple -kits – and is called a MagicPack (link opens new tab). The Magicpack contains all the different properties and principals you need to help get the amazing ‘customized to the […]
