    So a birdie told me that Brooklyn is home to the most natural hair care salons. So why don’t we start a review? Can you list salons, their location and or contact and a brief synopsis of your experience with them? I‘ll list the ones I know of, but I haven’t personally been, so if you have please say a few words bout it. I haven’t gotten my hair done professionally in a min and I’m trying to decide where to go. I’d like to find an affordable place in BK, but I’d travel to other parts of the city if necessary. Anyway I thought makin a list would help others in BK as well. Thank ya much

    Hello All!!
    Well I've been to Soween's in Brooklyn and I didn't have a very pleasant experience. One of the ladies there was very rough on my hair. I was getting micro braids by the way. So anyway, I couldn't figure out for the life of me why the hell my hair was being pulled so hard when she was combing it (I'm not tender-headed). Come to find out, she was parting my hair with one of those little silver clips ( the ones to hold your hair in place). I have the roughest, toughest and thickest nappy hair but it's also a TWA. IThe hair itself came out nice, but the treatment of natural hair was extremely rude. When I showed her my natural hair she grabbed it and started blow-drying it. Then they all started looking and talking about me. Anywho, I will not be going back.

    It's funny, most of these places are in walking distance from my house and I didn't even realize they were there. LOL Especially the infamous MissJessies... that's like right up the block. Although their picture gallery is a little creepy.... everyone has EXACTLY the same hair... just different lengths... they look like little clones of each other.

    Anywhoo I'm visiting Tendrils later on in the week so I'll post my results. Also there's a place called Pikannini Natural Hair Spa (I didn't make up the name) that I've seen but haven't visited. They are on Franklin and Halsey in Bed Stuy.

    :-)

    Thanks for posting this great list. I'm just wondering if anyone has a firsthand review about any of these places. I've been all up and down the site and can't find any current reviews about salons in NY/Brooklyn.

    Tabeel is cool..I go to her every 2-3 months to get my locks twisted. She charges by the length of your hair.

    Check out her site at: tabeel.com.
