Leah’s Experience At Natural Kinx & Waves
After a year of transitioning (meaning growing out my relaxer and wearing my authentic hair texture), I decided to change up my style and wear my natural hair out for the first time. I was terrified because I didn’t know where to start! I thoroughly researched natural hairstylists online and was drawn to Aingeel-Z.
I was really unsure what to do with my hair at the time, because it was always in sew-ins, but I decided to get my first flat twist-out with Aingeel. Prior to going to her, I didn’t know much about what types of products to put in my “4C” type hair. It was always dry and not properly detangled. My hair was in rough shape and a piece of work!
When I arrived at the salon, I felt welcomed because everyone inside greeted me warmly. Not only did Aingeel give me an adorable twist out, she helped guide me in the right direction to start my natural hair journey. I asked her every question that came to mind about how to care for my new look and she answered each and every one with detail and patience. I was at the salon for a few hours because she gave me a deep conditioning treatment, did several small flat twists, and curled the ends with small curlers. I then sat under the dryer to allow my hair, which is extremely coily and takes a while to dry, for an hour. Overall, I rate the experience at the salon and the resulting look very highly. The salon is an intimate environment, but spacious enough to have room to watch TV and talk at your own chair.
