Trying to find good hairdressers for natural hair, even in London can be a bit hit and miss. I tweeted my need for a hairdresser that could start me on my dreadlock journey and was inundated with replies.
I haven’t used all of these salons personally at the time of posting but some of the responses came from people who have or know those who do. Of course, still do your research, look at reviews if possible or give them a call and see if it feels right to you. Everyone’s hair is different and what works for one may not work for the other, you need a hairdresser that will treat you individually and not use a one way fits all approach.
