I really love my hair! The atmosphere of the salon was also very welcoming & warming. I must say that shampoo & scalp massage was really the best I've ever had! It was so relaxing & soothing and all the products smelled great. I love how as my hair was being twisted she educated me more about Locs, different methods, and products I can use to maintain my hair. I can't wait to return for a second time thank you so much I really love my hair & so does everyone else
