While I myself am not a licensed cosmetologist, my mother is and a d*mn good one at that. She's been doing it ever since she was in high school and some 18/19 years later shes still working hard. I practically lived in the shop (salon) seeing as how often I got my hair done. So I've seen and even helped out a bit. I've done almost everything imaginable to my hair except for perming it. (I don't want curly hair when I was born with it!) If you can give me a description of your hair, hair type, and its condition, I'm sure I can help!Oh, and if you live here in Texas anywhere near the Houston/Sugarland/Missouri City/Stafford area, I could recommend you to my mom's shop. I know I'm kind of advertising here but my mom does wonders on hair. Literally! I know from personal experience.
