Well folks, I’ve finally done it. I am officially booked in for a hair appointment at a salon that specializes in dealing with curly hair, The Curl Ambassadors, in Toronto. As someone who has rarely been pleased with hair cut experiences (with the exception of my mother’s friend and long-term trimmer and colourist of my hair, who has looked after me since the age of 12!), I am very much looking forward to this new experience.
Things they will do (that I’ve never had done before):
1) cut my hair dry – an important curly girl necessity, as you can’t really judge how high the curl will bounce if you cut it when it’s wet.
2) use Curly Girl approved hair products that are sulfate and silicone-free!
3) trim each clump of curls at a certain point to ensure that maximum curl is being produced!
I’m looking for something more voluminous – I love me a good afro – but know that competing with, say, Solange Knowles probably isn’t going to happen with my hair type. What kind of shape should I go for? And, most importantly – has anyone – curly or straight – ever had such a kickass hair cutting experience that they can’t stop raving about it to their friends? I truly hope that’s what this experience will be for me. I will most definitely do a review on The Curl Ambassadors after March 8 (when my appointment is), so until then – my excitement keeps building!
