Care of Ethnic Hair

I spoke recently with Victoria Durnell, multi-cultural stylist.

At the salon, I was able to watch Victoria in action dealing with a problem that is becoming more and more common.

This little girl was adopted by a mother who had not been informed as to how to care for her daughter’s difficult ethnic hair. Her hair is coarse and overly curly. When tangles appeared, her hair was never combed completely through. Tangles quickly became mats at the scalp. In effect, it was dread locked. With dread locks, the normal hair growth and motion of the body cause the hair to continue to mat closer and closer to the scalp.

Her hair was shampoo’d each time she showered. The “dread’s” didn’t allow for thorough cleansing or rinsing of her hair and scalp. Soap scum was still lodged in the hair. Victoria advice would normally have been to cut her hair off and start fresh, but this little girl was at an age where this extreme measure would have been devastating.

Victoria Durnell, is a multi-cultural stylist and barber at at Salon Concepts in Fort Wayne, Indiana.
