To Go Or Not To Go To The Salon? That Is The Question.

As much as I love my natural hair, sometimes I just don’t want to deal with it especially when it comes to wNatural-Hair-Hair-Salonash day. Sadly, it seems quite difficult to find people to do your hair without damaging it. Few years ago, I had a really bad hair experience at a hair salon. It was for New Year’s Eve. Like many women I wanted to look good to start the New Year. The outfit was sorted, the hair was the only missing piece of the puzzle. I just wanted straight hair for a change and decided to go to the salon so it could be done professionally. It started quite well. Washing…Good…Detangling…Good…Blowout…Erm not s
o good. I had to tell her what to do and what made it worse was that my hair at the back got burnt in the process. It just would not curl back anymore when
wet so had to wait for it to grow back. Despite this unfortunate “incident”, I decided to give salons another chance 2 years ago for a treatment which was good. It really moisturised my hair deeply but at the end, the hairstylist left me with three uneven cornrows on the head with my hair still wet. So I asked what she was going to do after…she said “It’s done.” Wait. What?! She explained that if I wanted something else I had to pay extra. The treatment was quite expensive so I would assume everything was included! Here again I told her to take out these cornrows and do a fro instead. Obviously, they never saw me again…

If you too had a bad hair experience or a really good one, please do not hesitate to share with us.

  1. The last time i went to a salon to get my hair straightened,i literally saw hell. The stylist didnt add enough leavein conditioner because she said my hair was drinking it all up(i have low porous hair) and my hair was really shrunken so with little moisture on my rock hard hair,she began combing. I almost fainted from the pains and i thought we were never gonna get through with it. In that moment i preferred doing braids all by myself than going to a salon! 😀

    1. Oh wow going to do salon should be a relaxing experience not a nightmare. That’s why a lot of naturals prefer to do their hair themselves now. Thank you for sharing!

  2. Every time, I went to the salon before growing locs, I was told that I needed a trim, resulting in what I can only describe, as a big chop. Not ideal, when your trying to maintain hair growth.
