Guest Blog: Revisiting the Salon


Hey folks. Here is a guest blog from Maggi of Clueless Curl. She has a wonderful blog that discusses the ups and downs of living and eco-friendly life as well as her natural hair journey. Check her out!

I have not been to the salon since 2006. Since then I was doing my hair myself. I learned how to braid and sew it in myself. Oh and who can forget the girl in the neighborhood who knew how to do some hair. Although I was doing my hair myself it was not healthy. After I take out my braids/weaves, I would redo them again without any breaks in between. I would wash it but when it came to deep treatments and trims, I missed those steps and paid the price fot it. My hair was very thin and fragile. Fast forward to 2008, I looked into going natural. I surfed the web and I couldn’t believe it. I was in awe at all these websites dedicated to natural hair. I was very inspired and the summer of 2009 was when I took the plunge. My hair is now thick and healthy.

Lately, I’ve been getting tired of doing my hair. I noticed more hair = more work. I love my hair but I’m tired of all these reps I have to take in between. I switched up my routine so I won’t have to keep doing it all the time. For the summer, I’ll be keeping it in small two strand twists. I want to put that energy on food LOL. I’ve been thinking about going to the salon. But every time I think of revisiting the salon I think of why I stopped going in the first place:

Customer Service– I always felt like sh!t after leaving the salon. I was always bouncing from stylist to stylist and I hated that. The experience was not always good.

Price– I would be quoted one price then get charged another because my hair was given a “special treatment”. I could have sworn when I spoke to you that’s what we talked about.

Time– I just love how I’d be given an appointment and 10 other people has the same appointment as me. You should have told me to bring a sleeping bag.

Oh well I guess I won’t be revisiting one anytime soon.

  1. Thank you Maggi for reminding me what I'm (not) missing out on and thank you for contributing to our blog. I'm all about DIY and NOT wasting money these day. Salons are probably not the best option for me.
