Welcome! And Thanks for choosing me because your about to experience the most awesome cut and hydration method for your wavy, curly or super tight curls.
I will cut your hair using curl by curl and grouping method, followed by a detox cleanse, condition, hydrate and define to restore it with moisture using silicone, paraben and sulfate free products. I will help build a home care regimen until your next 3 or 4 month curl session.
Preparing for your First Appointment...
1. Please bring in 3-5 inspiration pictures that are realistic to your natural curls pattern and head shape to your appointment.
2. Please arrive with clean, detangled, dry curls in a wash & go style. If your hair is wet, tangled or in a protective style we may have to reschedule.
If you prefer your hair cut wet And like the Ouidad method it is okay to come with just a leave in & detangled dry curls.
I would still like to see how your curls falls. If you do not know what a Ouidad cut is please refer back to steps 1 and 2.
Pull hair back with ponytails, headbands or clips of any sort. No butters or oils (ex. Shea butter, Blue Magic, Avocado, Coconut or Olive Oil).
For tight curls (3C - 4 type hair) please follow the instruction to the 14-day detox before booking an appointment. An added fee will be added to get these oils out of your hair. Why? Good question, If your hair is extremely dehydrated with loads of butters, oils, pure apple cider vinegar, Shea Moisture and non-friendly curly hair products you've put on your hair for months were going to spend most of the appointment if not all detoxifying.
This is recommended for clients who are currently on a No Poo/Co wash routine using oils/butters consistently. These products create major build up and residue on the hair.
As stated before, If your hair is extremely dehydrated with loads of butters and non-friendly curly hair products you've put on your hair for months were going to spend most of the appointment if not all detoxifying (in most cases this is not always a one appointment fix). Being able to successfully make my clients happy is very important and doing so will require help from you doing some homework before your appointment.
Here are some recommended clarifying shampoos that can be used once a week before your appointment.
Kinky curly Knot today cleanser shampoo, Malibu Undoo Goo or Ouidad Water Works Clarifying. Products are okay but please do not use any oil, butter or greasy products. Ex: Uncle Funky's Curl Magic is a good gel IF you have.
