  1. Like you said…it’s been a long time coming. There aren’t that many stylist who are familiar with natural hair unless it’s a child’s hair as you referred to in your article. I am currently transitioning. You should try A Natural Affair Beauty Lounge it’s located on Perkins Ext in Memphis, TN. The stylist is TaKeisha Berry-Brooks and she specializes in natural hair. She’s very professional and she has wonderful products. I think you’ll like her. Your stylist should appreciate your loyalty. Many women would have left once they decided to transition.

  2. Hi Alisha,
    I read this in the Curly Nikki Blog and I am from Memphis as well. I have been natural for 6 months after a 22 month transition. So I know what you are talking about. Although my stylist was willing to work with me, I decided do the work myself as I have always enjoyed doing hair. (I only went to her for re-touches anyway). The last time I went to a Stylist was to cut the relaxed ends. I commend you on your decision to transition. You will not regret it. 🙂
