There was a lady there, I'm not sure what her name is, but she had the most beautiful afro. I myself am transitioning from relaxed back to natural hair for the second time. The first time I transitioned, I was young with absolutely no patience. I didn't know how to maintain natural hair. I used all the wrong products, which made my hair hard and brittle, so I ended up relaxing my hair after only a few weeks. I decided approximately 6 or 7 months ago to give it another try. While transitioning, I receive monthly sew-ins and I always leave hair out in the front for a more natural look. My problem with that was the natural texture of my hair. It.would always curl up, even after I would apply heat to it, so I went to Angel Beauty Supply on millbranch and sought out help from this woman with this beautiful afro. I figured she would know what she was talking about and she did. I told her my dilemma and she suggested a serum. It was a LITTLE expensive she warned, but we'll worth it. I used the product as soon as I returned home and it worked MAGIC. You only need a small amount, which was great. Apply it to your hair by sections and use your flat iron to straighten it. My own natural curly hair was completely transformed. It matched the Russian Bundle I bought perfectly. That beautiful lady with that beautiful afro completely saved my life. Lol. The product I used by the way, is called Heat Protector Straightening Serum by Inter Cellular (IC) Fantasia. Works wonders ladies.
Simply put......Epiphany Salon & Gallery is awesome! The ambiance is amazing. Everyone is so friendly and bubbly and to watch them work is wonderful. Haircutting, highlights, silk pressing, relaxers, etc. You name it, they do it and the shop is so diverse. Black, white, green or yellow....doesn't matter what color you are, if you have hair, they'll do it! :-) My personal experience with hair stylist Angie was amazing! This was my first visit to the salon and even though she graciously took me at the last minute on Valentine's' Day weekend she got me in and out. She explained everything that she was doing to my hair, she explained areas that needed improvement and she explained to me, her method of doing a silk press before and during the process. I will definitely be a regular moving forward and if you are having second thoughts about going to Epiphany Hair & Gallery or going somewhere else-choose Epiphany! My hair is LAID and yours can be too! BOOK ANGIE!
Whenever I am in this neck of the woods (the Frayser area), I always stop by this Value Dollar Plus to get my toiletry and household supplies. The guy that runs the store is really helpful, customer focused, and is always glad to have earned my business. When I drop off my hard-earned bucks, it helps so much to know that someone is glad that I am spending my money at their establishment. I have given up on Walmart, and being made to feel like I and everyone else that wants to save a few dollars must be treated like cattle (and in line forever)! So, I gladly, SKIP THE LINE!, and enjoy getting in and out of Value Dollar Plus in less than ten minutes (and spending about ten)!
