Have you ever been afraid to speak up when you visit the salon? That doesn't happen to you alone. It has happened to a lot of us. But we stand to lose a lot when we keep quiet. In fact, the perfect time to ask the stylist a lot of questions is when you are at the salon.
Here are a few questions to ask your stylist. And no, you don't need to be shy or afraid to ask or speak up. Ready?
Are there any recommended treatments for my hair?
The type of hair treatment you'll need, depends to a large extent on the level of damage of your hair or a peculiar problem you have with your hair. You might be suffering from dandruff or breakage or brittle hair or a combination of all these and more. Please talk to your stylist about it and they'll recommend a course of treatment specific to your hair needs.
What's the maintenance regimen for this style?
Imagine spending so much money on a particular hairstyle only for it to come off 2 days after. That'll suck. Ask your stylist how to maintain your hair no matter the style you have on. Sometimes a simple scarf might suffice. Other times, you might need a well though through regimen to keep it neat.
Is there an appropriate style for my hair texture?
Just because it was done for client A does not mean it can be done for client B. The texture of our hair plays an important role in the type of hairstyle we should choose. Flat twists for example doesn't work well on very fine hair. Another classic example is micro twists. How well they turn out depend on your curl pattern. Speak to your stylist about it and let her help you in choosing an appropriate style.
How often should I wash my hair?
There is no blueprint for the number of times you need to wash your hair. It depends on a lot of factors. Some people exercise every day, others swim, some use a lot of products. Talking to your stylist and explaining your schedule to her will help in coming up with an appropriate regimen for you.
What products will you recommend for my hair?
In as much as our genes play an important role in the overall health of our hair, the products we use also helps. We might have an idea of the type of products we need but to be a 100% sure, speak to your stylist about it. What do you have to lose?
This final one isn't a question. If your stylist is heavy handed or you're in pain, please speak up. They are around to make your experience a pleasant one. In case the style you requested for isn't being done just as you wanted it, please speak up and get your money's worth. You deserve to look your absolute best.
