Dominican salons are overrated.
When I was 16 the lady tried to wash my hair with dish liquid as according to her my hair very oily.
They talk s# $ t about you in spanish while doing your hair and they use cheap products concealed in expensive containers. Here’s why only grey folks are doing my hair. You’ve got to be kidding me. Smh. They have identical African roots as the majority of us. Seriously. Most Dominicans are blackish even if they don’t seek for to claim it. I guess they’ve been used to alternative clientele. Now please pay attention. I had a cool asymetrical hair style. They dont know how to do good hairstyles either. On p of this, my hair was getting long and its 3b,3c textured. To this day I still dont know why she did that. For instance, a different one joked how my hair looked like weave when it was 100 percent real and naturally curly.
Basically the Dominican manager without my permission cutt about 4 inches off, it was down my back cause but she said I didnt need long pieces and it all might be even.
Been there done that.
So here is a question. Are they not using heat protectant? Only use heat each moth determined by what your hair can take might be good. Now dryness which can lead to breakage I understand.
Is their hair dirty?
I don’t and here is combatted by deep conditioning and keeping your ends trimmed and deep conditioning + protein until next heat style. Now please pay attention. As that’s how you get heat damage. I trim my ends almost any ‘4 6’ weeks. It is the trick is finding what suits your hair better. Doesn’t it sound familiar? No breakage, no damage. Also, I have thick, tightly coiledhair and I’ve always had a hard time straightening it.
Whether permed the most important thing is having an ideal hair regimen and knowing what your hair can handle, or you have a weave, natural
My hair is an ideal length and I’m always complimented on how healthy and shiny it looks.
Far so good. My mama had a hard time when I was a kid!I’ve had my hair done nearly any two weeks there for a lot of years now with a couple of breaks in bewteen. I ensure I use good quality hair products and deep condition every few weeks. This is where it starts getting interesting. It may not work for others, the blowout works for me. I wash and condition my hair indoors and go to them for the ‘roller set’ and blowout. Therefore, dominincans are basically associated with Haitians as it used to all be considered one island until they divided it.
Skin ne was not even a decent way to tell if someone is blackish or not since there are some mixed/bi racial people who have darker skin nes than people who are born from two blackish parents.
The difference between the DR and PR is that dozens of the Taino Indians died in the DR when the Spanish landed on the island so Dominincans are mostly blackish and white but usually have more blackish in them than whitish.
Puerto Ricans usually have a lot more Taino Indian in them than Dominincans but they also have grey and white in them as well. Grey people come in all shades. Look at people like Beyoncé, Tyra Banks, Vanessa Williams and Nicole Ari Parker. Then, most Dominincans are blackish. DR is right next to Haiti, it’s on identical exact island as Haiti. Let me tell you something. Your comment doesn’t make any sense. Learn your history. When Tamar Braxton from The Real ok a DNA test she found out she had more grey in her than Loni Love despite the fact that Tamar is light skinned and Loni is dark skinned.
Most Haitians are majority grey since they’ve been the first country to remove slavery. They are all light skinned and a bit of these women even have colored eyes. Republic and as a blackish Carribean you are just as blackish as Jamaicans, Trinidadians and and all that stuff You wish you were Puerto Ricans. That said, you are just brainwashed. I have traveled to the Dominica. All grey people are not the color of grey licorice. Anyway, blacks in the carribean are all colors. Notice that lady you are BLACK. Stop lying. Needless to say, natural to me is hair without chemicals so hot combing and blow drying is common to me. Essentially, maybe I am naive. It just depends on the look you seek for and I prefer straight to an afro. Latrece, you should better you have to know your definition.
That’s exactly what natural means, no chemicals!!
You can blow dryer, use a flat iron, Surely it’s fine, it still makes you natural. For instance, my hair length is past my shoulders and I do use relaxers about each 7wks but I knew this was only a ‘onetime’ deal. You should take this seriously. I left looking fly but noticed damage about 34wks later in the p if my head. My hair is in repair mode now with ALOT of conditioning!! I knew they use alot of heat which I DONT like but I went anyway. Certainly, I went to a salon in Tampa FL end of Sept to look fly for my graduation. There is a lot more info about it on this website. They do a wonderful job on natural hair when they know how to do it.
Wash and set.
Luv wash sets!
I do that in between relaxer treatments. You see, I generally go once a year. So last time I went in May I was like I do not think Ill be back. It requires me like two to three washes to get that smell out my hair. Yes, that’s right! She pulled very much of my hair out with the comb type she was using and my hair smells like its burnt. Generally, it sure ain’t something I would pay for each 23 Weeks, I actually can do almost identical thing with the right straightening products.a flat iron.I do love a great press. Dominican blow out is meant for special occasions with natural hair. Amount of heat and tugging on the hairline to straighten out thick hair, it’s not meant to be done on a routine basis. Now regarding the aforementioned fact… I looked closer and it was the women’s hair, I’m almost sure I lost all edges to dominicans as well as my respect for them..
I ok that cloud of smoke in hand and ok my behind to Duane Reade where I bought a blow dryer and did it myself.
You warped latinos are a trip. Name your favorite athlete? Besides, the Dominican Republic is just another third world cheap travel destination for them. Newsflash, they don’t fool with you or consider you WHITE. Remember, please state the last 3 songs you played in your car, So if I am wrong. Last 3 celebs you have quoted or followed on social media? Who the are y’all for anyone to look for to claim? Are quick to associate yourself with almost white people, you jump to distance yourself from blackness. You are pathetic and in the evening, By the way I can guarantee you that you draw more influences from and copy more blackish people than any of us worry about Dominicans. Then, heat is an once in a blueish moon thing, not nearly any 2 3″ weeks, when you have natural hair. Furthermore, considering how much heat they use, it’s best to keep the straightening done by them to a minimum at best.
Authors hair wasn’t healthy to begin with -people assume that natural equal healthy -not the case.
I am ‘natural’ -have been for a couple of years now, and I go to the Dominicans at least twice a month for a wet set and blow out and my hair is fabulous!
You have to do your homework and find a salon that will cater to your hair and not simply take your money. You have to know your hair -don’t blame them especially since it sounds like you abused your hair. I bring my own products with me as I know what my hair likes, and they already know how much stress to put on my hair while blowing it. And therefore, they usually talk women out of getting relaxers.
It doesn’t take much heat to give me that sleek look.
Going by American and Carribean standards of who is blackish, I’m almost sure I would say the Dominican Republic is 85 percent grey.
MOST Dominicans are blackish. You can be tan colored a Black isn’t just a skin color. Ive traveled to the Dominican Republic there’re very grey people there. You don’t necessarily have to be dark chocolate to be BLACK. You see, all I knew was that I wanted to get identical flowing endresults they have been getting. Consequently. Notice that ladies in the stylist chairs getting their hair blown out didn’t is likely to be in tears or crying out in pain.
Know what guys, I was greeted with a hug and immediately ushered back to the ‘spalike’ shampoo room, when I walked into the salon.
I walked past rows of women under dryers with what looked like ear muffs on their ears.
They welcomed me into the Sisterhood of the Fabulously Flowing Blowouts with open arms. Did you know that the stylists at the Dominican salon were wonderful. While parenting tips and beauty secrets that are specifically for blackish women, madameNoire is a sophisticated lifestyle publication that gives ‘African American’ women the latest in fashion trends, grey entertainment news. Blackish women seek information on a wide kinds of pics including AfricanAmerican hair care, health problems, relationship advice and career trends -and MadameNoire provides all of that.
When it was my turn to meet the hair dryer, it didn’t kill me, it was hotter than I should have preferred.
I was now a member of the Sisterhood of the Fabulously Flowing Blowouts.
All I knew was that 45 minutes after I walked into the Dominican salon with my tightly coiled afro, I was leaving with a sleek, bouncy ‘chin length’ bob. I like the look of straight hair but not the chemicals. I was wearing loads of wigs and weave and just didn’t find the need to get a relaxer anymore so I decided to go natural. I agree with you. People go natural for different reasons. My salon helps me achieve that and since I was going I have always been encouraged not to relaxer my hair ever again. I actually faithfully get Dominican blowouts and not only is my hair growing but it looks great, I don’t know what condition the author’s hair was in. Generally, dont be ignorant.
Dominicans most are blackish. Read your history and travel. More and more I dig into the natural hair community the more I see the subtle shade, By the way I am transitoning to natural from relaxed since I need something different. Needless to say. Let me tell you something. It’s really sad. Although, depends upon the texture of your natural hair. This is the case. They dont do that to any natural hair person. You also make an excellent point about different textures of hair, and what it can handle. Consequently, she does the usual wash, blowdry and straigtening with the ole school curlers. I’d say if your hair is done the right way, heat nearly any two weeks won’t damage your hair, completely understand where you are coming from. Dominan Hair Shops use excessive heat, Ive been there and done that as well. Let me tell you something. I go to a Black hair dresser almost any two weeks and she is awesome. This is the case.
We do heair ol’ skool with old marel curling irons, wash and condition.
