PERSONALIZED HAIRLTH CARE
YOUR HAIRLTH JOURNEY THAT'S TAILORED TO YOUR INDIVIDUAL NEEDS
Going natural can be overwhelming! It's hard to know what your hair type is. It's hard to survive traumatic hairstyling practices at salons (combing, blow driers, etc) that leave your scalp sore and your hairline damaged. Choosing the right products for your hair at retail stores becomes confusing which results in you buying more products than you need.
As a hairlth spa that specializes 100% in only natural hair, that is, we only handle hair in its natural state (without braids or extensions), it's been through experience that we've been able to come up with a framework that transitions you to healthy natural hair in 3 steps.

DISCOVER YOUR SCALP & HAIR PROFILE™
UNDERSTAND YOUR HAIR BETTER.
The Scalp & Hair Profile system was created by trichologist, Botlhale Tshetlo, in 2018. Botlhale developed it after noticing certain hair and scalp characteristics from just over 60,000 clients that have had their hair done at Hairtural Studio since 2016. The profile of the hair is defined by; the size and shape of the follicle opening, scalp hydration and sensitivity level, and sebum secretion. It is split into 4 profiles;

WHY DERMATOLOGISTS RECOMMEND US!
We don't comb because it is painful and the main cause of mechanical damage to the cortex (middle layer of the hair). The comb breaks your hair as it moves from the roots towards the hair ends.
We finger-detangle; we use our fingers to gently separate the knots and tangles.
We don't use curling irons and blow driers because they dehydrate your hair, and can alter the internal protein structure of your hair resulting in breakage.
We plait your hair while it is moist to minimise damage and we let it air dry.
We do not use any braids (extensions) because they put strain on your hair and follicles, which may result in traction alopecia (hair loss). Furthermore, the chemicals used to coat braids for heat resistance and help prevent mould can cause irritation to your scalp (resulting in itching). We plait using only your hair (free hand) to protect your scalp and hair.
We don't colour hair because the dye has to penetrate the outer layer of the hair shaft (cuticle) by increasing the pH of the hair. This causes damage by lifting the cuticle and leaves the cortex (middle layer of the hair) exposed. The dye is extremely drying to the hair.
EXPERIENCE THE FREEDOM TO LOOK LIKE YOU
OUR MISSION IS FOR YOU TO ENJOY AND CELEBRATE THE UNIQUENESS OF YOUR NATURAL HAIR.
FREE TO BE YOU
At Hairtural, your freedom begins by learning to accept your natural hair for what it is (coily, curly, and kinky) and for what is is not (straight or smooth). We celebrate your natural hair as it is... we celebrate your identity.
FREE FROM DAMAGE
Our salon treatments are created and formulated for natural hair. They are free of any harmful ingredients; free of parabens, sulphates, and mineral oils. You can enjoy your hair's versatility without traumatic hairstyling.
FREE YOUR TIME
Some get their hair done in their free time, but Hairtural clients free their time to get our 2-hour Natural Hair Pamper that is eco-friendly. Hairtural is located in relaxed, yet sophisticated premises in the heart of Bryanston.
A friend of mine recommended the salon and I'm glad to say I wasn't disappointed. Great service, professional, clean and my hairstylist Mpumi is friendly and amazing. They are always on time, ooh and the payment system is the best.
I thought I'd have to give up healthy hair to get my natural hair done at a salon. But then I leaned about Hairtural's Damage-Free Pamper Experience... now I have beautiful AND healthy hair without a sore scalp, damaged hair, and a thinning hairline. No more sleeping uncomfortably after visiting a hair salon.
Looking for a natural hair salon... the perfect place. No driers, no pulling of hair, no comb. You will sleep peacefully after a visit to this salon. I can't fault them on anything... a salon like this has been long overdue.
