      Would have been smart if they had marketed their method! Seems like your envious of her being ambitious about putting her idea into the market

    This is great and all for people who have hair that is similar to their extensions. I am natural….my hair will never….ever…match my extensions. I know it will sell, but she definitely should think about changing the name.

    This is one of the reasons that our profession isn’t professional anymore…if you want to know how you and your homegirl can achieve a certain look just go to youtube university for a step by step tutorial. Glad they aren’t showing how to do open heart surgery or porcelain veneers. Ijs……

      I think if more professionals were considerate of their clients time people would not be so quick to jump on products such as this. After all this is no different than a wig…

        I tend to agree about the time spent in the professional shops. The last time I went i spent over 5hrs just for a wash and flat iron. He spent more time talking and doing things that should have been done before his clients arrive.

      Oh well if I can find ways to do it myself I rather keep my money… Smart… But there are still going to be technics that the beautician will always do better. What we really need is a beautician that know how to work with natural hair and we don’t have many of those and it’s sad because most of the beauticians know how to work with processed hAir

      Many stylists need to learn how to be customer oriented which is showing professionalism.

    Also if professionals wouldn’t charge their clients soooooo much and make like 6 appointments for the same time and leave you under the dryer forever so they can multi task we wouldn’t have to do it ourselves…

    Why make the “professionals” pockets fatter when you can teach yourself to look beautiful !!!! Yes go to YouTube and get your tutorials ladies there is absolutely nothing wrong with being self-sufficient

      I so agree with you because utube has been a wonderful source of information for me in learning even the basics of taking care of my hair. Many of these women take their time to share their knowledge so freely and for that I am thankful.

      As well it can be even better for a person and their family if they make the attempt to capitalize on their inventions.

      So creative and it is great to see A.A’s come to the table with ideas so that they serve our community and have a piece of the cherry pie. That slice of cherry pie is finanicial gain. Let’s make more of an effort to serve our community and put that money back into our community instead of other communities.

    I think it’s a great idea…way cheaper than a weave…but it is still priced too high… She needs to lower the price $19.99 I say and buy 1 get 1 free…..it’s basically a wig u can continuously customize….

  6. Keo PeoKeo Peo says

    I don’t think she trying to take over the profession I think she found a niche in the market that many women can appreciate and benefit from. I support her and her creativity.

    She will make money. It’s not just us that wears wigs this girl will be a fierce competitor hopefully she has it patented cause you know how some people like to take ideas from others and run with it.

  8. LaurenG says

    I’m not really into wearing weaves or extensions but this is a brilliant idea! You go girl!

  9. Tamara says

    This is a really great idea. I like that i can change me hairstyle whenever i want. I think another type of material should be considered for the construction of the cap. This looks as those it would keep your head hot. Something more breathable.
