A bad haircut is the worst! I...MEAN...THE...WORST! It dampens your mood, your morning (as you try and salvage it) and you dread thinking about how long it is going to take to grow out into something else. Well, imagine that happening to a natural who has entrusted someone with her tresses even though she truly feared it would be a bad idea.
Naturals tend to take care of their own hair because let's face it...we really did not have anyone to do it for us. Honestly, there were not any natural hairstylists around working on natural hair. They weren't trained on our hair in it's natural state so we adapted by doing everything ourselves from straightening to trimming to styling. Only recently have we seen a flood of natural hair professionals emerging and while it is exciting it is also scary.
