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;
Dry Hair Profile
Sensitive Scalp Profile
Fragile Hair Profile
Oily Scalp Profile
Dry scalp and dry hair.
Sensitive scalp and very dry hair.
Breakage and fair fall.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
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
