How are you doing today? Kinks and all? I was going through the pictures of the last edition of NITC and I really wished I was there. There is so much benefits to meetings like that. One of which I want to talk about today; Consultation.
Can I be real for a second? Okay. Thanks.
If you are like me you also think most of these natural hair salons are abit overpriced. I mean when the under-stairs-woman-who-does-just-natural-hair-and-collects-500 is still alive -__- (say all that in Yoruba to understand the extent)
I still stand by the fact that they are overpriced but there is something they have that these other 'cheaper' hairdressers don't have. Knowledge about Natural hair and that is what you need.
Here's why I think we need to have that sit-down with the natural hairdresser (and most especially if you are just starting this journey);
You can skip through all the trial and error; Starting out with on the natural hair journey, there is alot of trial and error, honestly, you don't HAVE to go through all that process to learn what will work for your hair - this is not to disregard you studying your hair- but someone with experience that has gone through different hair types will be in a better position to tell you what will or will not work for you after they examine your hair. There is not guarantee that their suggestion will work but it gives you abit of clarity on what might or might not work and saves you aloooot of time.
Expert Advice; They have the knowledge and experience and they can cut through the natural hair lingua that you still can't get a hang of and bring out what YOU actually NEED for your hair at the state they meet it.
And let's face it, no matter how knowledgeable we are, everyone needs alil help sometimes.
That said, I recommend consulting atleast twice a year and when you notice drastic changes in your hair e.g drastic hair loss you should be going to the Doctor and not your hair dresser ;)
