Hey You!

I'm blaCk like me, I'm a RadSwan.

Black like me is removing the room for conditions, groups, hierarchies or categories, and replacing it with all that’s woven in that black body of yours.

It’s an ode to the individual.

So ‘black like me’ isn’t about being black, it isn’t about being “other” either. It’s about being all that you are, with none of it being able to cement or undo your blackness. In a world where you can either lose, or win, isn’t just being revolutionary?

Our edges are the most fragile part of our hair and it doesn’t take much to, sometimes, cause irreparable damage. That’s why they need special attention, and these steps will help you love and care for them. Most of all, they’ll help you keep them intact!

1. Do not braid too tight

Braids may look neater when they’re tight, but it won’t do your edges any good. Your cornrows really don't have to look perfect, all eyes will be on your RadShape anyways. Just make sure you don’t make them too snug. Excessive pulling can cause your edges to be lost forever and that’s what we’re trying to avoid.


2. Our RadShapes are glueless

Product build-up is the enemy. Whether it’s glue, gel or edge control, the excessive amount of product can cause dryness and breakage along the hairline. Going glueless is the best option for your edges.

3. Our Radgrip™

The RadGrip™ is an adjustable velvet and jersey headband that protects your hairline from friction. While the Swiss lace of our RadShape is extremely soft, the RadGrip™ adds an extra layer between the shape and your baby hairs. No hair pulling here!

4. Spritz water on your hair daily

To avoid any breakage, make sure to always wipe any build-up product from your edges with a wet cloth. Once your hair is clean, spritz some water or lightweight water-based products to moisturize your edges. Follow with natural oils and massage in gently with your fingertips. Massages stimulate blood flow and growth.

Rad Tip: we are loving Jamaican castor oil and jojoba oils lately. They act as a barrier between your hair, the lace and the Radgrip™.

5. Be gentle when removing your RadShape

Our RadShape may be glueless, but don’t just rip it off. Take your time and be gentle when removing your shape to ensure minimal damage to your hairline.
