Regularly-- No.

I have found a natural stylist in Dallas that is really great though. She has been natural for 15+ years and was reccomended to me by my SO's sister who is also natural.. but like others have posted.. those prices are not for me.

I used to go once a month for her to shampoo DC blowdry and cornrow.. Her technique was flawless, she works in a cute suite and NEVER talks on her phone or  eats over my head or overbooks (huge pet peeves of mine). Its just me, her and soulful music and conversations for my allotted 1 hour appointment.

She is truly a gem.

However, now that I have my blowdry technique down she'll probably only see me when I feel like treating myself to a handsfree hair day.

Great  natural stylists ARE out here. My natural stylist did not do any of those things femme listed.
I'm not going to say that there are many, but they do exist.

Yes!  It is amazing how women would spend hundreds when they were wearing relaxers and weaves, but will not spend $60 or $80 on professional natural hair care...  I just don't get our people...Unhappy

You don't understand how saving money to do something you know how to do (yourself) makes sense?

I'm confused.
You must be a stylist?
You mad? Geek

You SHOULD pay for relaxers and other chemical services. People do a lot of damage to their hair trying to do these things alone. Same goes with weaves. Not to mention, a lot of people don't know how to do their own weaves anyway.

Natural hair care services are almost double the cost of relaxed services and they're almost always something you can do on your own. It's not like we're not supporting black owned businesses. We're keeping money in our own pockets. I can shampoo, deep condition, steam, etc. my hair at home and I will still have hair left on my head.

No I'm not a stylist. I'm someone who wore weaves for years and who enjoys the pampering of a good salon, thanksSmile  Going to a salon for many women is about more than getting your hair done, it's also about the experience and pampering...

Well it sounds like bcz we are still in the early adoption stage of natural hair care, there are not many well educated natural hair stylist in abundance.  I happen to have a great one where I live, thank God!  So, for me being a business woman, I don't mind paying 60-80 bucks after a long two weeks of working.  But that's me...

Thanks for the clarification Thumbs Up
Like Roxie said:: I'm all for pampering but..I still don't find a natural stylist on a regular basis beneficial for ME.

I like doing my hair weekly, and I don't see the need for my stylist to get paid $200 a month (not including tip) to do what I can do for myself for free at the house.

I work and like my money to go where I think it needs to go.
Everyone has a preference, not sure why/how thats confusing.

Oh there are lots of educated hair stylists, at least here in Atlanta. I'd just rather put my $60+ elsewhere than in someone's pockets for doing what I could do.

Besides, I sweat from working out so much that going to the hair salon is pointless.
