Hello and welcome to my blog. My name is Angel Morris. I am a salon owner and natural hair stylist, meaning I strongly encouraged all of my clients to embrace their natural hair. I do not even buy a lot relaxing products anymore.
So you might ask … why? Well, here’s what happen.
I started to get a lot of compliments on my hair when I went longer between retouching my new growth. Naturally, as a hair stylist, I began to ask myself… why do I have more body and flow when I need a touch up as oppose to right after a fresh relaxer? Then, I decided to go even longer in between touch ups.
I experimented with different tools, adjusted temperatures on the tools, and found products that would smooth the hair. Ceratin treatments were just becoming big at the time and worked, especially during the summer months. But, most importantly, I discovered it’s just as easy to press the hair with a ceramic iron and achieve a relaxed look without the chemical.
From there, I encouraged four clients to allow me to experiment and take them natural. Within six months, they all liked what they saw – longer, fuller, healthier hair. And as more time passed, they too decided to stop relaxing.
About four years ago, I took 98 percent of my clients natural. And yes, it was hard to convince some but most knew me as a knowledgeable stylist. They trusted my judgment, and trusted me with their hair. Today, I do have one client who refuses to let go but she is at least willing to go longer between touch ups.
Thanks for allowing me to share my story. I will answer any questions and comments are welcomed.
Benefits of going natural:
