Two of our attendees were all natural high-schooler Cami and Ms. Tanya, a fairly new all natural client and a new graduate from nursing school. Ms. Tanya came in with two strand twists still in her hair, not knowing that we were not only going to teach her how to style her hair, but also how to shampoo it and care for it daily. It was no problem, though; Ms. Tanya came ready and willing to learn! She was also preparing for an interview, so we had to keep that in mind while advising her. Cami came in, still rocking her twist out from the last visit. We took her back to do a pre-shampoo comb-out, meaning that we went through her hair and pulled apart any of the curls we saw with our fingers. This makes shampooing, especially combing out during conditioning, much easier and prevents knots in the hair. Note: Do not comb through dry hair. The strands are too dry and brittle and are likely to break off. Make sure that when you're combing, hair is damp and conditioned to prevent breakage.
Both styles came out wonderfully; Ms. Tanya even managed to pin her curled two strand twists up into a pinup for her interview. Both women learned a lot about their hair; how to manage and care for it outside of the salon.
We'll be having our second Jaha Academy class this Sunday, February 23rd!
Come to a Jaha Academy class and you too can learn how to manage your hair your way!
