    beautiful hair! :love:
    I’m intrigued. I’d be willing to travel to see her.

    I wish there was someone in Southern California/Los Angeles like Reniece, or Tamika, (and now Whitney) dedicated to helping clients with healthy long hair.

    After my big chop, my hair is thriving really well in my care. It is so thick, and the longer it gets I will want to seek a professional for maintenance. I have had so many bad salon experiences I’m so leary, don’t know who I can trust with my hair.

    @miss_a Thanks so much for posting the review.
    I've been researching and thinking on this since you first posted.

    Last night I booked with Whitney!

    I figure I better get in before she ends up closing her books again. Dallas has been a weekend trip for us for years now.

    Haven't been this excited about a hair thread since Reniece's bun drop in 2011. Your hair is B-O-M-B:love:.

    Did you get a scalp detox or anything? How was it?

    I didn’t initially book it, and now I’m thinking on it.

    @Dee-Licious, hello! I did, but I didn’t book it initially. I believe you can add this on, on the day of service, just let your stylist know!

    I wish there was like a sister circle of beauticians that could rec someone local to your city that does same or similiar caliber work..

    @AnjelLuvs, this is SUCH a great idea. Now you are making me wonder, how many beauticians across the country, even do this type of caliber work. Hmmmm.......

    Your hair is beautiful. Finding a salon where they treat your hair gently is priceless.

    That IS beyond !00% truth. What I appreciate even more about this salon--is I am never made to feel less than because of the time it takes to detangle my hair.

    LADIES, I figured a little update wouldn't hurt anyone!

    Here is my hair, six weeks after my silk blowout at Her Growing Hands. My blowout truly held up for a good 3 weeks (this is saying a lot in this 100+ Texas heat); and the final 3 weeks of my blowout saw my hair return to its blowout textured stage.

    This is my hair after the wash and steam treatment. Second photo is after my detangle by Whitney (25 minutes to detangle, Ladies!?!?!). Next update will be around November!

    Have an amazing day, LHCF:yahoo:!
