What are the best natural hair salons in the UK? It baffles us that so many so – called Afro Caribbean salons have no idea about natural hair. From stories about being coerced to use relaxers to extreme horror with relaxers mixed into treatments, it makes it even more important to know what a salon is like before you go.
Judging from the reviews that we have received, we created this list of the best natural hair salons in London and beyond.
Top of our list of natural hair salons is Natural Gloe in Shepherd’s bush. One of the reviews for naturalgloe is “Since going natural, my experiences at salons and with various hairdressers shall we say have been less than enjoyable. This has all changed since I got my hair done by Marlene yesterday (hence why I am writing this at 7:30 am)! Read more about NaturalGloe here. Marlene, hairstylist at natural gloe (pictured below) was the winner of the natural salon awards at natural hair week 2013.
Next on our list of natural hair salons that we recommend is Mahogany hair spa in Milton Keynes. It may not be in London, but we have lots of reviewers that travel for Tope’s skills. This is what Tosinbaby had to say, “another great service.i have Locs and I go to Tope for a shampoo, steam treatment and scalp treatment. I love the way my scalp and hair feels and looks every time. I’m a client for life”
Number 3 on our list of natural hair salons is Purely Natural in Stratford. This is a purely natural salon so all they stylists are natural and you can be sure that they understand your natural hair. One of the reviewers said, “After an in depth consultation they very honestly told me that the method I thought would work just wasn’t feasible with my hair but were quick to suggest a number of other methods I could use to achieve the same look. Was blown away by their expertise and the finished result, exactly how I imagined ”
This list is by no means extensive and we need your help in growing it. If you know any natural hair salons that are not mentioned here, please add them here. If they are on the website but not reviewed, please add your review. We cannot do this without you!
