YOUR HAIRLTH JOURNEY

HOW YOU TRANSITION TO HEALTHY NATURAL HAIR 

Going natural can be overwhelming! It's hard to know what your hair type or porosity 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.

Step 1

DISCOVER YOUR NATURAL HAIR PROFILE

UNDERSTAND YOUR NATURAL HAIR BETTER. 

The Natural Hair Profile system was created by Botlhale Tshetlo in 2018.  Botlhale developed it after noticing certain hair and scalp characteristics from just over 55,000 clients that have had their hair done at Hairtural Studio since 2016. The profile of the natural hair is defined by; the size and shape of the follicle opening, scalp sensitivity, and sebum production in the scalp. It is split into 4 profiles;

WHY DERMATOLOGISTS RECOMMEND US!

COMB-FREE

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.

HEAT-FREE

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.

BRAID-FREE

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.

DYE-FREE

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.

BOITUMELO MOTLHAKA

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.
