Hey lovely people, How are y’all doing?
I’m super thankful for the love I received on my last post, and thanks for the birthday wishes too, you all are amazing.
Guess who had her very first trip to a natural hair saloon, after being natural for two years. Yes, your favourite blogger fifi. This happened on the 3rd of March, on my birthday. I needed a trim badly, and I also wanted to visit a Natural hair saloon, just to get the feel. Plus I couldn’t imagine scissors on my hair, I don’t trust myself not to clip all my hair away.
If you have split ends, they are unhealthy. Chop them away because they will cause more damage to your hair. Leaving damaged ends can cause stunted growth because you will not retain length
So lets get down to our very first saloon review ;
I love the fact that its easy to locate, just along 45 Evo Road, GRA Phase 2, Port Harcourt.
Ambience and Surroundings
I also loved the fact that the surrounding is very Afrocentric, and neat. The colors, art, everything just screamed Africa! Loved it. Although the decorations were simple, they were thoughtful and aesthetically pleasing.
On my way in, I met the boss, she was really sweet. I didn’t even know she owned the saloon at first. That alone was a big thumbs up for good customer service which is very hard to find in the city of Portharcourt.
The atmosphere was so calm that customers discussed natural hair amongst themselves, I didn’t join in, lol I just listened except I was directly asked a question. A customer even asked why we even bothered relaxing our hair because our natural hair is beautiful. I have never been in the same room with that many natural women. Its amazing how our natural hair can bring us together.
They were quick to attend to me, I detangled, washed, trimmed and blow dried my hair. I spent three hours at the saloon, but I would like to believe that happened because my hair is really full, so I guess detangling and trimming took a larger chunk of the time I spent.
Washing my hair cost #1000, trimming #500 and blow drying #1000. That is #2500 in total. Not bad except that you have to pay an extra 500 for leave in conditioner, which I kinda felt should be incorporated into the washing price. I took along my own Cantu leave in conditioner along so I did not have to pay extra, don’t ask me how I know, I just put it in my bag along with my heat protect-ant.
Fro nation is a saloon I’ll definitely visit again, most likely to style my hair into those fancy twists ruling the natural hair world at the moment. So i’m rating my experience a 85%. I hope you enjoyed this post guys, thank you for reading.
Do you enjoy visiting the saloon or you’d rather DIY 😊 ?
