Located: Natural Hair Stylist

Since starting a new job, my regimen has been straightforward to say the least.

For most of April and May, there was hardly no braidouts, a lot of wash and gos (since the weather permitted) and I was loving on my EZcombs <3 (my glorified curly pony).

I was feeling the need for a change, but the effort  just wasn’t in me to make one. lol

LUCKILY, I happened to spot a young lady one day with flowing, thick healthy tresses and asked her who her stylist was. Guess what?  I found out that, not only was she natural – but so was her stylist.

Needless to say, I immediately set up my own appointment – and the rest is history.  I later found out that my stylist has quite a number of natural (and relaxed) clientele.

The last time I went to a salon, was when I got my hair cut (the big chop) by Anthony Dickey. So obviously my salon visits have been infrequent but well worth it when I finally do decide to go. I may even stop in her shop to get some natural styles that I have no patience for.

Here are some pics – I got a blow-out and silk press. I also got a full trim…because it was time for one :-O

My hair actually seemed to grow at a record pace in just a month’s time. And this is after I got a full trim. I just wish I was able to get some pics of my hair pre-cut.

So, either my hair was really loving me leaving it alone or I was going through a summer growth spurt… Possibly both? Either way, I hope things continue to progress smoothly.

BTW: Do you guys notice the touch of red from the henna treatment I did about a month ago? You can kinda see it in the last pic – faint, but there nonetheless.

      I feel your pain! when I left NY, I wasn’t sure where to go, when I didn’t feel like doing my hair myself.

      She’s great, but make sure you schedule well in advance. She’s popular and books fast!!

    I’m attempting to go natural and find it quite hard to maintain. I need a hairstylist that will treat my hair and get it back to normal. I’ve also experienced a little breakage along my hairline, so I need SPECIAL attention. I would love to meet you so that we can tackle this mess lol…:)
