Jul 08, 2012 - My daughter is 12 years old and we've spent 10 of those years trying to find someone to help me with her hair!! I think mine is type 2C and hers maybe 3B or 3C......not sure. I have never known what to do with my wavy, curly, can be frizzy hair, but I have always been able to straighten it with no problem so I wear it straight most of the time. My daughter's hair, however, is very different from mine and anyone else's in our family (we can't find anyone who has hair like hers!!). It was like little lightening bolts when she was little and has now turned into more spiral curls but with frizz. In her 12 years, the length of her hair hasn't even made it to her shoulders. We have tried many different products, many different salons, and have attempted to straighten it. She has left salons in tears. With all of her friends having long, beautiful straight-ish hair she was beginning to develop a huge complex. On our journey to find anything or anyone to give us the "right" answers we found Mark!!! I have to admit I prayed really hard before her appointment.........we needed this to go well. I gave him my opinion and told him our experiences and then left he and my daughter to do their thing. Sitting in the waiting area, I could hear them chatting and was so amazed!! He had my daughter in full conversation about her hair, her activities, etc. When they were finished she was elated with the results, smiling from ear to ear!! I couldn't believe how happy she was and how willing she was to express it! Mark wrote down instructions and gave us suggestions on product (and the best part.....he never tried to up-sell us on products sold in the salon!!). My daughter's hair had never looked so healthy and she had a great experience. Its been 2 months and her hair STILL looks amazing!!!!! Her confidence has risen dramatically..............thank you Lord! I will now take my 2C hair to him and see what amazing things he can do with me so I can give my blow dryer and flat iron a rest. Thank you Mark.......you ROCK!!!!!
