(not viewed above)Hello,
I'm Francisca, from Nigeria and I live in Lagos. In November 2011,I decided to lock my hair. Its been 9 months now and I still have trouble finding the right products and a good stylist that knows what he/she is doing with my hair. I have been to various salons and all the stylists I've met know next to nothing about dreads. They keep using dread wax which causes build up and retards hair growth. I really don't want to give up, I've spent close to 100k since I decided to opt in for dreads!! I really need a good stylist! Help!
Nat: Hi Francisca, I know very little about this subject, and the best advice I can give is for you to find sites dedicated to dreadlocks. I know how difficult it is to find good and affordable stylists in Nigeria and on line assistance can go a long way in killing your frustration. Like most Naturals, I had to find my way through my journey by using the information I found on Natural Hair sites and forums like BGLH and CN. Once you know how to take care of your hair by yourself, the pressure to find a stylist and your dependence on him/her reduces. Plus you get to spend very little money on your hair *_^...that, I love.
So, does anyone know about deadlocks maintenance? Please share sites, and/or techniques that you have developed. And if you know a stylist IN LAGOS please leave a comment.Thanks!
