- Wafaya and staff
Jul 08, 2011 - Wafaya and her team are MIRACLE workers!!! Here's a little background about my hair. I had a relaxer in my hair for years....and when i say years...my hair was relaxed for at least 20 years. WHen I moved from NY 6 years ago I decided to grow it out and I went natural. Did the BIG CHOP and all. I was doing well and my hair was a little bit passed my shoulders. I decided that i wanted highlights and went to a "reputable" salon in the area. They lightened my base color and gave me gorgeous highlights. The problem was they left the developer in my hair too long and a few short HOURS later my hair was coming out, breaking off, and felt like straw. Not only was it breaking but the chemicals reacted with my hair the same way a relaxer would and my curls were once again straight. I was devastated to say the least. The mother of a student of mine referred me to Oasis and Wafaya and I now REFUSE to go elsewhere. Not only has Wafaya comforted me in my time of "need" but she has encouraged me and has taught me how to nourish and work with my hair at this "in between" stage. That's what I love about Oasis. Not only do they do hair (and do it VERY well, i might add) but they teach you had to take care of it, how to work with it and show you what products are the best for your hair type. Almost any salon can do hair. But this is the only salon that i've been to in this area that actually cares about my hair, cares about me and won't just do whatever to my hair for a quick buck. Bravo Oasis!! You will always have my business!!
