Just for a little background, I have 4A hair and perhaps a little 3b in front. So, I use a relaxer to straighten my hair. My favorite relaxer is Phytospecific, Index 1, as I have thin hair. Andrea uses this on my hair and I love it. Before I started seeing her, I was applying my own relaxer or taking it with me to another salon and paying full price for the stylist to apply it. Big rip off.
Anyway, it wasn't the fact that her salon carried the product that impressed me, it was her ability to cut my hair. It was and remains the best cut I've ever had. I like long layers and my hair falls neatly into place regardless of the style (flat iron, naturally dry ).
She doesn't double book, so I am always out of the salon quickly. In addition, the staff is great at Robert Leonard.(downtown Seattle, near Westin Hotel)
Finally, she knows how to handle a flat iron. I'm going in this week for a touch-up relaxer, but when she flat irons my hair the hair stays straight until you get it wet.
Stop in for a consultation. You can also email me and I can provide more details.
