How often should I switch conditioners and how long should I use each one?

There are no numbers carved in stone for this; you need to listen to your hair for each of the conditioners, not just randomly switch for no particular reason. When you switch too often the conditioner doesn’t have enough time to work. Use one conditioner until you learn how to tell if it’s taken. Your […]

Is #9 Trees ok to use as a re-treat after using it in the shower?

Yes, but it will only be ok until the hair tires of it; then it won’t like it anymore as a re-treat. Hair that doesn’t have this situation doesn’t crave it. Using it too much #9 Trees will simply not work out well, but if you need it your hair will like it.

Why isn’t the conditioner sold separately, so it can be used with other brands of shampoo?

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.

Can you use #19 Honey Bee as a styling aid for curly-haired?

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 […]

Is it okay to use more conditioner before rinsing out? (Double-Dip Trick)

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.

How much of the conditioner should I use?

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 […]

Why can’t I detangle using #19 Honey Bee treatment?

#19 Honey Bee is NOT supposed to be combed through with the Flexipick, and that’s why you can’t. If I put any detangler in it, it would not go into the hair structure as deep (the proteins penetrate totally on their own) and you couldn’t use it as a skin conditioner. The #9 Trees does the […]

How do I ease the Flexipick through my hair during a shower?

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, […]
