It is always shocking to hear “natural hair is not for everyone”. I am happy to see how Dr. Kari does away with the biggest misconception of natural hair being difficult to manage. One could argue that all hair can be difficult to manage, but with the right products and technique everything is possible. Us women simple need the right “hair education”. I am happy to hear that Dr. Kari provides such education in her e-book, but also encourages us to seek help with a professional stylist. Also transitioning to natural hair can be trying experience, we know there is great advice and support out there, and the results are so much more rewarding and truly natural beautiful.

I’ve heard countless stories of ladies who walk into “natural” salons only to have their hair ripped apart by fine tooth combs, dipped in grease, and fried to death by blow dryers. Or those stylists who only know how to do braids and locs, but not loose hair. Let’s not forget those who claim “natural hair is not for everybody.”

For some naturals, they get better results and more encouragement from following Youtube and blogs, and this leads to a “You can’t tell me anything” attitude towards the stylists. I think as more licensed professionals emerge who have actually mastered natural hair, they will gain respect and their voices will stand out. Right now, its really not at that point.

I got news for them…just throwing an egg and some honey in your hair ain’t gonna do much if anything!

It’s so refreshing to hear from an ACTUAL expert for a change!

While its true that in most of health ideally one should get a doctor or professional to help with their hair, the reality is that many naturals for different reasons have not been supported by the professional community. While you and Ms. Leatherwood and some others are super phenomenal, not every beautician or Trichologist has good customer service skills and or are affordable for many. I do like that you have made your book reasonable. To date there are many great books that have been written by researchers and medical professionals about haircare.

But as hair care is a process there will always be those who want to know more about products and how they work on natural hair. That is one of the reasons for the proliferation of websites about natural hair.

Perhaps if you had a YouTube or presence for the professionals in the field of cosmetology and would educate them on how to deal with hair, how to deal with their clients so that clients have a rewarding experience, I think more people would be more inclined to see professionals.

There are horror stories about cosmetologists who don’t even want to “wash” natural hair let alone style it. I’m sure you’ve seen the stories about people who ask for clipped ends only to have their hair big chopped.

I do appreciate your concern for customers. I wish many more stylists and professionals were like you. I’m hoping to see more websites aimed at the professionals coming out of beauty school and doctors in your profession.

Thank you.
