Cantu Shea Butter Leave In Conditioning Repair Cream

Aug 07, 2013 - This stuff tangles my hair up and makes it very hard and dry and stiff and greasy. I would not use it if you're protein sensitive or sensitive to smells. The scent is really strong. At least it was cheap.

Cantu Shea Butter Coconut Curling Cream

Aug 07, 2013 - This stuff smells horrible. The smell is so strong it gave me a headache both times I tried to use it, so I had to give it away. Also, it made my hair really greasy. It didn't define my curls well either and it took forever to dry. My hair felt dry as soon as I applied this to my hair. Must be the Petroleum? I dunno. My hair was soft, but this is not worth the $9 I paid.

Tangle Teezer Black Tangle Teezer

Jul 16, 2013 - I actually had the hot pink brush but I don't see that product listed, so oh well! Neways, This brush is wonderful at detangling my 4a hair. It also clumps my hair really nicely. It detangles in half the time of a wide tooth comb. There are a couple problems that I have with it though, 1)The brush flys out of my hair when it gets slippery and 2) If you tend to get single strand knots like me, this brush may pop them off and break the ends of your hair. That just means, make sure to trim regularly. I love that this brush comes in many different colors, and the pink and purple glitter are so cute. It works on my flat ironed hair too.

Angela Hicks @ Michael Flores Salon - Dallas, Texas, United States
Stylist:
Angela Hicks

Aug 06, 2013 - I went to Angela today to get a cut and I think she did a really great job. I have very long, hi shrinkage, 4a hair, so I was skeptical as to whether she would be ableto handle it, but she quickly reassured me that she was familiar with all textures! Angela trimmed my ends to keep the length and gave me a few layers in the top so I would have more volume. I wasn't a fan of the Deva products, but that has no real bearing on the experience, I just wanted to try them. I think I'll get it more layered next time and not be so worried about length. It was expensive, but she's very thorough and you only need one a year. If you have natural hair and live in Dallas, I would try her.

The Styling Hutch - Plano, Texas, United States
Stylist:
Mimi

Jul 16, 2013 - I wouldn't recommend this stylist if you have 4a hair, ESPECIALLY if it's long. I called this salon ahead of time to let them know my hair type and ask if they had experience dealing with it. I was told yes, and booked with Mimi. The receptionist told me this stylist would be a good choice for my 4a/3c hair type. On the day of my appointment, I also went to the front desk so they could see my hair, and asked the same question, just so they would know what they were dealing with in terms of texture. I even asked the stylist if she had experience dealing with my texture of hair, and she told me yes. I really wanted a haircut, so I tried to stick it out. Then she had the nerve to say I was "just getting scared". Never again! It took me 4 hours to detangle her mess! And I had to cut out so many knots! Btw, I conditioned and detangled the night before to make the process smoother, so I know she's the one who did the damage. Sry, but I'm not gonna pay $150 for a Ouidad certified stylist to damage and break off all of my hair.
