I'm sorry mom but I'm having a hard time believing that dominicans said they don't know how to do black hair, the dominicans are the best ones to go to for having your natural hair washed and blow dried, they get your bone straight like it had 10 relaxers in it.

Maybe your hair was (please don't take this the wrong way I'm not trying to be disrespectful, I'm just saying) maybe your hair was a hot mess and they just did not want to touch it or be bother with it.

Because before I got my personal hair stylist I only used dominican hairdressers and I got neck length, thick, all natural hair, and those Spanish sisters have my hair bouncy, and shiny and looking so beautiful when I leave their shop.'til my friends be saying Kym did you relax your hair and I say no, I went to the dominican beauty salon.

I don't think any beauty salon that's professional is going to say they can't do anything with your hair, first why would they be a public place if they can only do certain types of hair?

I'm not trying to say you are not telling the truth mom, please try to understand that, I'm just saying maybe these things were told to you but it just does not seem feasible that's all.

But at any rate I'm sorry that you went through this and I hope you find a professional group of hairdressers that can do the things that you want done to your hair without basically insulting you.

that is wat they said and they didnt even look at my real hair the girl at the front just said they dont really know what to do with black hair before i even go to speak with a stylist. I was really looking for advice on how to find some one near charleston who would know what to do with my hair

I'm sorry you had that terrible and embarrassing experience, I'm not in Charleston I wish there was more I could do to help.  All the best in your search.

You go natural by keeping chemicals out of your hair. Use protective styles and limit heat. Youtube had a lot of information. Who cares what the texture is, healthy hair care does not discriminate.

Kinky curly? Course? Straight that turns kinky? You don't have to be "mixed" to have a certain type of texture! Mmmm a black salon doesn't know what to do? I've seen black salon doing all types of grade hair! Including WW getting braids,weaves.
