The Truth about Natural Hair

The Truth about Natural Hair…. Is it a lifestyle, choice, or a trend? It is all the above. For some people; it is a lifestyle change. You want freedom to exercise, go to the beach or the pool.  Becoming natural for others is  a choice… A choice to transition from relaxer to natural styles due to diet, spiritual reasons, and/or a new experience. Lastly, the natural hair trend is everywhere. We are finding natural styles on television, in magazines,  and on the streets of DC, NY, CA, Canada, and worldwide. Natural hair can be easy…IF  you let the experience become easy. Natural hair is not challenging. It gets complicated when we listen to everyone from friends, families, experts, and the entire natural hair community. It is YOUR hair. Enjoy the journey. Play with your hair, try different styles, love your hair, and protect your tresses. If you are in doubt! Ask expert….

New Year! New Attitude!

Greetings! The new year is approaching! What do you want to change this upcoming year? We hope the goal is to change your outlook and attitude. A healthy view of yourself is the most important aspect of life. Your hair does not define you. Your texture, your hair length, or the products that you use will not change you. Begin this year with a new outlook on life. Hair is amazing, beauty is wonderful, and great skin can be radiant. More importantly, you are radiant from the inside to outside. As the new year approaches; change the inner you. Let’s spend the remaining part of 2014 setting goals and creating the change we want to see in our lives.

How to select a Professional Natural Hair Stylist?!!

Women are becoming natural at high rates. We hear about new products, view new natural hair styles, and videos of natural hair gurus/bloggers. Natural hair is the topic of conversation. The business of natural hair is not…. Why do we rarely discuss the business of natural hair? I love natural hair care. My passion is the business of hair. I have noticed that business and natural hair are not simultaneous. Clients often discuss the lack of professionalism, poor attitudes, tardiness, and lack of knowledge of natural hair stylists. Natural hair is an art and craft that can be performed with professionalism, knowledge, and care.

Would you visit a doctor without knowing his/her credentials? Please treat your natural hair salon experience with the same care. Your hair is important, gentle, and needs to be handled with care. I want clients to become even more informed consumers. As a convert to natural hair styles; it is a journey. You need a professional to guide you through the process. Some people find stylists through word of mouth, social media, Google, and much more.

However, when you make the first call or send an email to a Natural Hair Professional; please ask the proper questions. The first question should not be about the price. The first question should be about expertise and knowledge. Pricing will be based on the expertise and quality of service. Please remember when you are looking for a natural hair stylist to ask pertinent questions. These are questions recommended to ask a professional natural hair stylist.

How long have you been a natural hair stylist?

What is your specialty?

What natural hair care services do you offer?

How do you feel about natural hair?

What products do you use or recommend? Do you schedule appointments?

How often should I come into the salon for regular maintenance?

What are the recommendations for home maintenance?

Do you color or trim? If not, can you recommend to me a professional?

What are your salon service payment options?

As a client, you want to be an active participant in your natural hair care experience. Please remember to inquire about things that deem important to you. Explain to the stylists your natural hair goals. What do you expect from this journey? This is my recommendation to all natural women. Please be an informed consumer. Please read articles and books about natural hair, our history, and the importance of natural hair care. Videos and advice from family and friends is very significant. However, it is important to gain knowledge through resources such as writers, speakers, and natural hair stylists with expertise. Enjoy your natural hair journey!

How can we begin to love our natural hair?

Natural Hair is beautiful and creative. How can we begin to love our natural hair? Why do we struggle with wearing our natural hair? Images depicted in social media, magazines, and television create this illusion of natural beauty. However, natural beauty is not a woman that starves herself, wears extensions, or wears a lot of makeup. Natural beauty is defined by you. Our natural hair journey began in Africa. We wore tresses to determine the tribe that we descended from and to differentiate ourselves.

We use every product on the market to attempt to change, manage, or remove the frizzy texture. Acceptance is key. God gives us beautiful features, fuller lips, wider hips, coarse or soft hair, thin or larger noses, and it is all amazing. Enjoy who and what you are…Society will continue to make you feel that your natural hair or beauty is not enough. Prove the world wrong. We are beautiful in all sizes, shapes, and hair textures. When we accept ourselves; we can help other’s to accept themselves too.
