African Amer­i­can hair

The Washington Post Sunday - - DEAL HUNTER -

For women with nat­u­ral or uniquely tex­tured hair, the key is to find an ed­u­cated stylist whose top pri­or­ity is healthy hair.

“You want to find some­one who spe­cial­izes in African Amer­i­can hair; that per­son can work at a Cau­casian sa­lon or an African Amer­i­can one,” says Turner. “You want some­one who does scalp anal­y­sis, some­one who can pre­scribe a spe­cific treat­ment for you. They should touch your hair, look at your scalp.” Turner gives rave re­views to Avlon’s Ker­aCare Nat­u­ral Tex­tures line, not­ing that the prod­ucts are ideal for women who twist their hair or want to re­store a curl pat­tern.

Grante notes that a stylist should ask spe­cific ques­tions about how you wear your hair cur­rently and how you plan to style it in the fu­ture, since this in­for­ma­tion will de­ter­mine the stylist’s ap­proach and the tools and prod­ucts used. For straight­ened styles, Grante sug­gests Kéras­tase’s OléoRe­lax line; for nat­u­ral styles, try the Oléo-Curl op­tions.
