HAIRTURAL PROVIDES YOU WITH DAMAGE-FREE™ NATURAL HAIR SALON TREATMENTS, PRODUCTS, UNIQUE HAIRSTYLES AND HAIRDUCATION.
Your scalp and hair's health is our primary concern. Our gentle DAMAGE-FREE approach to handling your hair (comb-free, heat-free, braid-free, dye-free) is why dermatologists recommend us. Hairtural provides premier services to women, men, and children (from 2 years old) for all natural hair profiles. We use our exclusive Afrology Professional products to create gorgeous, strong, and healthy natural hair.
Our Hairturalists pride themselves on their professionalism, creativity and they strive to establish longstanding relationships with clients. They provide washes, treatments and styling including but not limited to updos, frohawks, twists, moropotso (cornrows), and bubbles. Hairtural is the creator of the "No-Comb, No-Heat" natural hair salon category.
Hairtural was founded in 2014 with the mission to provide you with the freedom to celebrate and enjoy the uniqueness of your natural hair. Our boutique salon is situated in relaxed yet sophisticated premises.
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 harmfull 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.
DAMAGE-FREE... THAT'S 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 the 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.
NATURAL HAIR PROFILES
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 45,000 clients that have had their hair done at Hairtural Studio since 2016. The profile of the natural hair is defined by; the hair's ability to retain moisture, texture, type, and sebum production in the scalp. It is split into 4 profiles;
Sensitive scalp, very dry hair.
Needs protection from allergens
Soft hair, breakage, hair fall.
Needs protein to strengthen
Oily scalp and greasy hair.
Needs detoxing to remove buildup
Lovely service each time I've been. There's an amazing hair shop affiliated with the salon called Autum, where you can buy the products used in the salon and hair bonnets and satin pillow cases. There's always a friendly reception to the place. I would recommend for moms and their kids.
Great service and very clean environment
Quant hair salon for black african hair or if your hair grows afro-ish. Constance tended to me, enjoyed her professionalism, I got a free head massage while my hair was washed. Covid 19 prevention measures in place. Recently opted to grow my hair, heard about them on 702, and I'm happy I bumped into them. They also sell hair products for your particular hair type.
