I Cheated... and Loved It!

Ever since I was a little girl, I've loved experimenting with different hairstyles.

My mom would send me to school with two neat plaits, and I'd step off the bus with a Solange-esque 'fro. In 8th grade, I'd rock my hair in a half up, half down style with the bang falling over my eye, like Aaliyah. In college, I colored it honey blonde in the dorm bathroom. I've always been impulsive with my hair, figuring if I hate it, I can always grow it/weave it/dye it/go bald and start over.

Natural Hair Salons: Why They Should Teach Texture Education

by Charlene Walton of TexturedTalk.com

As a person who prides myself on caring for my natural tresses at home, I also understand the importance of having a professional stylist. Some things just should not be done at home. For example, coloring your hair almost always requires a professional. Last year was sort of a whirlwind for me. Due to a bad experience with heat damage earlier in 2015, I revolted against the salon for a few months. I was completely against anyone touching my hair except for my amazing stylist from DC, Marissa Robinson, which you can read more about here. However, after 3 months I finally decided to let a new professional touch my hair. I desperately needed a trim since that’s the only thing I can not do by myself and another service I believe should not be completed at home. Although I was a little skeptical, still scarred from my previous experience, I was nothing short of satisfied upon leaving and the salon and here’s why. I LOVED the educational component my stylist passed on to the shadow stylist helping her for the day. Here’s a recap of my experience and why more salons should teach texture education.

Sometimes you grow tired of all the DIY associated with being natural. There's no greater feeling in my opinion of having someone else really scratch your scalp. It is so amazing, I'm not even over exaggerating. Because I'm a complete and total penny pincher, I mean frugal shopper, I only treat myself to the luxury of going to the salon every once in a blue moon. However, I've found that not all salons are created equal. Even a self proclaimed natural hair salon may not meet the care standards I feel are necessary for my hair. Whether you have a special occasion you're getting dolled up for, need a good trim, or you just need a break, there are certain things you should look for in a salon. Some salons feel that the only difference between natural and relaxed hair is that they do not have to give you a perm. This is not true though. Straight and curly hair have to be treated differently. There is a higher level of care that curly and especially kinky textures need to be treated with. So what do you need to look for in a salon?
