Would you ever consider relying on a natural stylist/specialist for your hair care needs? I'm kind of wondering what it would be like, I don't know if I can figure my hair out, maybe someone who specializes in natural hair can? Thoughts? Does anyone regularly go to the salon?

I dont know if I felt like they understood me and my hair, and appreciated the work I have put into her, maybe I would, but I have tried several, and they have let me down and damaged my hair, so now i'm scared to try anyone else

I go to the salon once a year, just to get a correct trim. I trim my own hair during the year and manage it myself. I also may go to the salon to get a weave during the winter. You can watch youtube and get a grasp of how to handle your hair. You just need to find a vlogger with similar hair to yours.

How long have you been natural?

^ I do the same as you Natosha...go for a trim, weave or whenever my hair just doesn't feel right I will go and have my hair dresser do a deep conditioner and then I am able to manage my hair again on my own.

This forum and you tube has really taught me a lot about how to take care of my hair so when I see a hairdresser it is a treat!

I would go maybe once every few months for a trim and style but I have yet to find one that doesnt overcharge.

nope.

They are late just like most of the stylists that do relaxers, weaves, or trims.

They yack on the cell phone like every one else..

They usually over charge for their service - just like the rest of them..

Have their friends coming into the shop and hangin' out and talking over your head while you're getting your hair braided or twisted - oh - just like Shanequa down the street who does perms.

and no,  just like so many self-proclaimed "weavologists", "natural hair experts" "colorists" " "guru's", "stylists" "creamy crack dealers" "chemical witches" etc?  Many of them have absolutely no idea how to work with or grow/nurture 4b/c hair.

The last person who worked on my head?  Sight for sore eyes... had fantastic weave (and traction alopecia on the crown of her head) - but was asking me "How do you get OUR hair to grow like that?"  "What are you using to make your hair grow?"Confused

She was a self proclaimed natural stylist..

From New Jersey (New Joisey)..

for gawd sake..

No, I wouldn't go regularly. I would go for color or a cut though.

I would if they were reasonably priced and knew how to do a large variety of styles. I can't style on my own, it never turns out right.
