For the Natural Curlycake who wears her hair straight….have I got news for you! White Hair Stylists are cheaper and better!!! I recently went on this venture of maybe, possibly, thinking about straightening my hair….(right, that what I said), so on my venture I discovered that black women Assume that white women cannot straighten their natural hair! My mom and I went into a well known upscale hair salon, in Beachwood Place, Ohio to look for some products I could use to protect my hair as I blew it straight. Much to my surprise most of the women sitting in the chairs were black! And they were getting their natural hair shampooed, blow dried and flat ironed straight by white hair stylists!! I thought to myself “Word”…and they looked great!! I really went nuts when I found out they only charged $23 buck for a wash and blow dry!!!! This is insane, if I were to go to a black hair salon I would pay $55 on the low end $75 to $80 on the high end…sheer robbery!!! Cleveland, Ohio..listen to me when I tell you. Check out some other options!
So that’s not the end of my story…. My mom goes over to the counter (as if her eye witness wasn’t good enough) and she asks, “Do you all do natural hair”? The stylists looks at her and says, “What’s Natural hair?” then politely says, “Ma’m you mean curly hair? Yes we do all hair types,” she said with a smile. Women of other races don’t consider our hair “Natural” it’s just really curly to them! And trust me, white women are the queens of turning curly hair straight, because majority of them have curly hair!! We are the ones locking our hair in some type of weird box…. Check it out for yourself! I wouldn’t lie!
*disclaimer-this is only for the flat ironing curlycake-wouldn’t recommend for locs or twistouts..lol*
