Koji is great. I read the book "Curly Girl" and told him about it. He bought it and read it to understand curly hair better. He listens to me and it helps that his wife is a curly girl too. I'm 47 and have been fighting my curls until about 2 years ago. I've worn it short since I was a kid and Koji is helping me grow it out. This salon sells Phyto products. I've got to a salon recommended here and I was dissapointed and went back to Koji.
