Adding More “LUX” To Our Luxury Collection…….

21 Jul

Hello Beautiful Ladies,

Earlier this year we introduced our Luxury By Design Collection. This collection was our 100% Raw Indian Hair that was available in Corse, Kinky, Poofy, Slightly Poofy, Soft and Silky Straight.  Our goal was to give each customer a custom experience  when purchasing their hair, so that you the customer could receive the best match for your hair texture as possible.  We wanted to continue to give you that great custom service so we are in the process of modifying the prices and the way we sell our raw custom hair. The new products and pricing should be listed by next month. It was very
difficult to make 3 bundles that felt the same in texture and create one full weft, since each bundle came from a different donor. So now we will offer online actual pictures of wefts we will make that will be available to ship without a wait time. Each weft will vary in weight depending on the donor 2oz to 5oz. You will be able to select multiple wefts to give you the look you are looking for and blend textures by selecting wefts. This will allow you to have a unique
blend instead of the standard straight, wavy or curl. The picture you see on our page for purchase is the exact product you will receive.  The descriptions will tell you the color, ounces, length, texture and luster so that you will be able to match other available wefts. Attached are some sample photos of hair that are from three different donors that are combined for a full sew in.  Prices will also vary since its priced by the ounce. Don’t forget if there is a certain texture or curl pattern you are still looking for and you don’t see it we can create it for you out of any of our available hair. We will post the full install in our next post……

So in my travel to my local Ross I was strolling through where else the BEAUTY AISLE 🙂 and ran across a box of  rollers so I said sure I need  more Flex Rods so I will pay $14.99 to add to my collection. So excited I get home and open the box ( Side note I rever read the details on the box in the store) I open the box OMG its heated flex rods ok ok some of you may have seen them before but I have never so that’s why I was so excited!!!  Having experience with steam rollers I was a little…ok a lot sceptical but I said what the heck. No Joke… 3 minutes in the rods were very hot!  That was a good sign from the hair Gods. So I rolled them as I would my regular rollers let it sit 10-15minutes in my Peruvian hair of course (thanks Gemini) and VIOLA!! I had curls…  So now maybe I can reduce my travel bag to just my new Conair Rods, Curling Wand, Flat iron and hair spray ok ok I tried but I’m  a fabulous women what can I say.  Run, don’t walk to your nearest Ross so you can get them too

Easy No Heat Waves

29 Jul

So Dolls you bought the best, affordable Virgin Remy Hair! But now you don’t want to damage it with heat. Those flexi rods that all the YouTube hair reviewers use in there tutorial just don’t work for you and they are so darn uncomfortable. Well we found the next best thing! Hair bun bendies! Yes those As Seen On Tv  easy bun makers well they make the best wave makers.

20130729_165551_LLS

So we grabbed Tina, yes Tina our full lace wig, ( You can get one to from www.geminivirginhair.com) Well Tina had nice waves but we wanted them more defined

20130729_161744

We sectioned Tina into four sections the larger the section the bigger the waves. Spray the first section with just a little water not a lot.  Take the bun maker and wrap the hair around the sponge making twisting coils. Fold the both ends of the bun maker to secure.

 20130729_191719_LLS

About four bendies will do the trick! The longer you leave them in the more defined but Tina was too excited to see her hair so we left it in for about 15 minutes

20130729_193413

And now heresssssss Tina!!!

20130729_171353_LLS 20130729_171418_LLS

This was a great way to add the beach wave look or body wave look to your hair without extreme heat or damage get you a set of bun makers today they are now $15.00 for 4 at www.geminivirginhair.com and believe they are more in other stores like $12 for one.

Winning The Hair Race

29 May

Hi Ladies

We started our hair company out of our salon in Charleston SC in November 2011. We have now been in business about two years now. We have had ups and downs  in finding and making sure we sell the best quality product at an affordable price. Its now 2013 and everyone sells hair we mean everyone I was in a take out and saw flyers for bundle packs. Instagram is flowing with people selling hair out of there cars everyone is now a hair dealer. We were told that you can’t win the race looking left and right so we don’t focus on the other companies we  focus on just one, ours. We focus on the customer, making sure they are satisfied with there purchase if they are not we do the best of our ability within our policy and sometimes above and beyond to make sure they are happy. We are still a growing company of two employees and we look forward to sharing with you new products in the future but until then thank you to all our customer and our customers who have been with us at the beginning and are a testimony that we have a great company and a great product.

PANTENE CATERS TO HAIR EXTENSION, NATURAL & RELAXED DIVAS

22 May

image

Yes ladies I found this great product in Target $4.99 each so of course I had to put this product to the Gemini virgin hair test.  The ingredients contain Coconut and Jojoba oils which is nice. So I dug into our ratchet box yes the ratchet box the box of hair that we didn’t feel was of good  quality  (Hair that was extremely dry) and didn’t want to sell to customers.

image

So I chose three good candidates. They were dry, a little frizzy, no curls and no waves. Pantene suggest that their new product is a three step product combined in one it cleanses conditions and detangles in one easy step.
My first step was to condition the three bundles of hair.  The product itself has a nice texture very thick. I love thick conditioners to me it makes me feel like its more moisturizing for my hair. Loose watery conditioners don’t seem to work as well in my opinion.
image

When co washing the hair I noticed that the hair had a good texture to it a very smooth creamy feel to it. Even though the product suggest that you leave it on for one minute I usually let my conditioner sit on for at least a good 15 minutes.
image

image
image

Instantly I can see that curls begin to be defined within the hair. After rinsing the bundles I still see defined curls but now I want to use the curling custard.

image

It states that it will give more of a defined look to the hair and also keep it from looking dry and also supposedly fight high humidity. The texture of the curling custard is also of a nice thick creamy feel.
image

I start with about a quarter size of product on each bundle scrunching it through, rubbing through all the coils of the hair to really get it the custard through all the strands of the hair.
image

image

After using the custard yes the curls are looking nice and JUICY!!  At this point ok Im impressed but there is still a final test. The final test? How does the hair dry? Does it dry frizzy and puffy or will it dry soft and feel light with a nice shine?

So here it is all dry and GUESS What FRIZZ FREE!! YES! My opinion I love it and I think its worth a try for any one who has of course GEMINI VIRGIN HAIR.
