Black women have a serious relationship with their hair and everyone knows it, especially the beauty industry. If you are looking for a stylist who will help your hair grow, you’ve clicked on the right page. Our stylists are seasoned experts who have been specializing in natural hair for more than 20 years. When you or your child’s hair is in our hands, you’re cared for with professionalism, tenderness and ease.
Your first step is to schedule a consultation with our master stylist so she can become acquainted with you and your needs. You’ll be asked questions about your routine, the products you use on your hair, any allergies, among other questions that will allow you and the stylist to discuss the services that will be the greatest benefit on the journey to healthy hair. During the consultation, the stylist will examine your hair to determine its porosity (how well your hair holds and absorbs moisture). She’ll look at your ends, your edges, the condition of your scalp and the general condition of your hair.
Caring for your Tresses
Our procedures are the same when it comes to the first steps in the process of cleansing and conditioning your hair. A moisturizing shampoo and moisturizing conditioner are used, especially when your hair is dry. Additionally, oils such as avocado, coconut, hemp, or olive may be added to the products to help increase moisture.
Side note: The oils we use contain moisturizing properties that you may also find in your kitchen. The oils include avocado oil, coconut oil, and olive oil. One of the benefits of these oils is that they can penetrate the hair shaft while adding shine. These oils in particular help soften dry or brittle hair.
Collagen Treatment with Steam
When our stylist notices your hair is extremely dry and brittle, she’ll offer a Collagen Treatment with Steam. Dry collagen and (avocado, coconut, hemp, or olive) oil are added to moisturizing shampoo and then massaged into your hair. You then are seated under a steam dryer. The moist heat from the steam dryer opens the hair follicles and pores in the scalp. This helps your hair and scalp absorb the moisture.
After your hair has been cleansed and moisturized, a Heat protectant and leave-in conditioner are applied to the hair. These products are used on the hair during the blow drying process to build a secure barrierbetween your hair strands and the high heat and adds protection for your hair during the blow-drying process.
Here are a few of our popular services from our Natural Hair Bar:
Shampoo /Natural Braid Style with Extensions & Shampoo / Natural Braid Style without Extensions
These services include thorough shampooing, conditioning, blow drying, and braiding to the desired Braid style.
Flat Twist with Shampoo
This service includes, shampooing, conditioning, and then products are added to the hair that helps moisturize and define the curls for when the client unravels the twists. A flat twist is similar to cornrows, two strands of hair are twisted and attached to the scalp. Generally clients wear the look as a style until they choose to take them down and wear their hair in the Twist -out style. Drying doesn’t have to occur with this option, most of the time clients prefer to air dry.
Hydration Scalp Facial No Style
Just like you may receive a facial from your esthetician, the process is the same for your hair and scalp. The stylist begins by rinsing the hair and then applying a shampoo, she rinses and then applies a different shampoo. Afterwards is the exfoliation which she does mechanically. She uses a small brush and goes all the way around the scalp, the perimeter of the hairline insuring the scalp is clean. Moisturizing is the next step for which a hair mask is put on your tresses. The mask remains on for 15 – 20 minutes. The mask is rinsed and a moisturizing conditioner is applied to the hair, it will help seal in the moisture, then oil is added for the finishing touch.
This is a separate service and can be added to any style service.
Shampoo & Silk Press
This is a style that gives natural hair the appearance of being relaxed. It’s an updated version of the 90’s term “Press & Curl.” It no longer includes a straightening comb on the stove in the kitchen to straighten the tresses.
This procedure requires us to make sure your hair porosity is healthy enough to be flat ironed because we have to make sure your hair is strong enough to handle the heat. Of course many products are applied to the hair before the flat iron to maintain healthy hair.
The first step is to shampoo the hair and ensure the tresses are clean. They are then moisturized with conditioner, rinsed, and blow dried. Once the tresses are clean, conditioned, moisturized, and completely dry, she uses the flat iron to straighten the hair.
Crochet Custom Style
The procedure for this style starts with shampooing, a moisturizing conditioner is applied, the hair is then blow dried, braided to the scalp, and then crochet hair is installed. For this style, clients provide (bring) the hair they want crocheted.
Blow Out Style Only
The procedure for this style starts with shampooing and conditioning the hair. A heat protectant is added when the stylist blows out the hair usually with a comb attachment. This process stretches the coils so you can actually see your length. Many seek this style in the winter when the humidity is low.
