What does maintenance routine look like?


PLEASE! In order to preserve your style for as long as you can, wear a SATIN SCARF OR BONET to bed. This will maintain your style longer and help keep your hair from breaking off from your cotton pillow cases. Based on your scalp and style, I suggest oiling it when it feels itching or every couple of days. In terms of washing, it will be to your desire I just suggest limited washing because it will make your style older. I offer Marley & Passion Twists Maintenance for the Queen who wants to spend a little more time with their style but would love a refresher! HAIR MUST STILL BE IN YOUR HEAD! RETWIST IS STRICTLY FOR the perimeter of the head! THIS IS NOT A FULL HEAD SERVICE! You can find this under "Book Online."

Yes I do! Hair is offered with all services to save you the hassle of finding it at your local beauty store! If you request a special hair color, it will be an extra fee due to the demand and price of colored hair.
