    Have any of you considered a traditional barbershop? If you go to a nice one, a lot of the guys there know how to cut, not only with clippers...but with scissors too. Don't be scared to go in there and ask.

    I was born and raised in Philly and moved from there in 2006. I went to a salon to start my locs in 2004, Kinky Kreations on Medary Ave., off of Broad street (going towards Old York Road). They were ok; but they never talked about or asked me about conditioning treatments and didn't really do much to necessarily education you about natural hair. At that time, I was still in the mind-set of just wanting my hair done and not wanting to think about it after, lol.

    I'm considering starting locs again. Any recommendations for locticians in the Philly area? Center City area is best for me.

    Thx!

    Hello!

    There is a shop located in the West Philadelphia are on the corner of 64th and Haverford Streets named Creative Hair. My husband goes their to get his locs styled and touched up. I also went their to get my first two strand twist done. The person who does them is very professional and she takes her time. She uses natural oils and products. Once she treats your hair, you are able to upkeep it yourself.

    These so-called "natural" hair shops in Philly are bogus. They charge to much for their service and always trying to convince you to get a perm or pressed out. So be careful and speak up for what you want. They get scissor happy.

    Good luck with your search! It probably best if you look through this website and see how to do it yourself.

    I would love a salon recommendation too. I really don't want to spend the $ in Khamit Kinks NYC if I can avoid it. So does anyone know of a great hair braiding salon in southern NJ, DE, and MD?

    A friend of mine went to a salon in West Oak Lane and loved it. They did a hair consultation, did a cut, and a lovely braided style. I'll ask her the name of it.

    I tried Ryan Foster, and I enjoyed the experience. I needed a trim, and they handled that well. A bit pricey, but I figured that was just Philly prices. I don't have a lot of experience with stylists though, as I have only been to two since I BC'ed in 2006

    I get my locs maintained at Leroy and Cinzia's hair salon in Germantown. They're really good at starting and maintaining locs, not sure about regular natural hair maintenance.
