Taking care of my natural hair is imperative to me, which is why I visit my stylist on a regular basis. I typically visit my hairstylist three to four times a year. It is important that you take time to develop trust and build a relationship with your stylist. When it comes to my curls, there are some things that I won’t do myself. I’ve been going to the same stylist since I first went natural and she’s educated and helped me through my transition. If you don’t understand why you should have a hairstylist, consider these reasons. 

Even though I know how to trim my hair and I have done it several times, I prefer to seek my stylist for this service. I know that trims can be scary, but I trust my hairstylist. I had a horrifying experience when my hair was relaxed with a stylist who cut off too much of my hair. It took me a while to get past that and trust my new stylist. I recently got a significant haircut in September, and I am very happy with the results. As scary as it was, I trusted my hairstylist and she delivered exceptional results.

If you want to change the color of your hair dramatically, do not do it yourself. I haven’t had hair color since I was in high school, but if I were to color my hair today, I would visit a professional. Seek a professional who is a colorist and knows a lot of various techniques. Coloring your hair is one of things if done wrong, it could damage your hair or your scalp.

I do light blow-outs and wand curls on my hair at home, but I have never straightened my hair with flat irons. I leave the straightening to my hairstylist. I am terrified of heat damage and have heard a lot of horror stories about heat damage. Express your concerns about the state of your hair to your stylist and ask how to care for it before and after straightening.

I also like to visit my stylist on a regular basis to talk about the health of my hair. I consult with her to make sure that I am taking proper care of my hair. If I have any issues such as dry scalp or dry hair she also recommends products that can help with my problem areas. I value the relationship with my hairstylist, because she listens to my needs and then educates me. I look at my relationship with my stylist just like my relationship with my doctor; they are both important to me. 

Do you visit your stylist on a regular basis? What are some reasons that you visit your stylist?
