Shayaa Natural Hair Salon Review (Formerly known as Naturals @ Evindi Salon)

Hi y'all! Remember I told you about the new salon I found near me? Well I went and got my hair done on Tuesday and I must say.. I LOVED it! It took me about 30 minutes to walk there (I know I said I wouldn't yet times are hard lol) but thanks to trusty Google Maps, I found it OK. First impression: They had been shut down LOL. For real. The place looked run down, windows were dirty.. I thought I'd gotten it wrong and they'd moved to their new residence already. As I got closer, I saw a light on and went inside. There was a young girl who greeted me and I waited for the loctician who had just popped next door. Miss J came in, all smiles and introduced herself before handing me a consultation form thingy where you fill out information about you hair type and history (I thought that was pretty good). After filling it in, she then proceeded to check my hair and confer with the info I'd put on the form (I like that at well.. when I started at Morris Roots the lady just started on my head, no questions asked about the size I wanted or anything). I told Miss J about my dryness issues and thin locs; for the dryness she suggested a hot oil treatment. They do them there but she wasn't pushing it on me, she suggested it and said I could even try it at home so I didn't feel obligated.

Washing without retwisting

 Hi everyone,
This is just a quick post in response to beautiful me's comment/question on my previous post. Now, as I type, I have not retwisted my hair since the end of February. I did the front loosely last wash and that was it. So right now i'm heading for the not twisting for nearly two months route again. This does not affect my washing, I still wash roughly every week-10 days. Worried about unravelling in the early stages? Ok for the early stages i.e. the first 3 months or so I washed every two to three weeks but wasn't retwisting each time. To minimise unravelling I wore a stocking cap that looks like this:
and shampooed through it.
