To Blog or Not To Blog…

Jason_and_MelissaAs we enter a New Year (2016), one thing I have on my “to do” list, is to start an official More Than Curly blog. Please know that I (Jason) am not a polished writer, but do like to express thoughts and communicate with people. One thing you would probably expect, is that Melissa and I talk about the Salon constantly. We discuss how to make things better, what works, what doesn’t work, how to make the client experience better, how to help the stylists become more skilled in Curly Hair, and become better service providers, and how to improve our overall footprint on the Curly World in a trailblazing and positive way.

Melissa and I have been in business since 2011, and have learned so much, but for sure DO NOT know everything. One thing we would like to do, is learn and grow by hearing your thoughts in response to our future blog posts, and perhaps this can be a forum as well, for Melissa to offer Curly hair tips and simple visual demonstrations to YOU, our valued clients. (Still trying to figure out what blog format best serves you).

In the comment section below, you will be able to provide feedback on the various posts, and believe me, we take all suggestions and comments to heart. For starters, we would love to hear from you, the things you are interested in hearing about on our blog page, or whether or not a More Than Curly blog is even something you are interested in?

Thanks for your ongoing business, friendship and support, and we are eagerly looking forward to hearing your thoughts!

    A blog is a good idea for discussions pertaining to styles and products. Thank you for having the salon and the products you offer. In the past I switched to different products not offered in the salon. However, I realized the products you sell work best. Thanks again!

      Happy New Year to you TeLee! One thing we are pretty confident about is what products work best for your hair here in Colorado. What do you like best about Luv Natural? Have you had great results while using it here in Colorado? Ouidad and Moroccanoil products have produced the most success in our clients hair, when applied correctly and as recommended by our Curl Specialists. There are a ton of Curly Hair Products out there, most of which are designed for humid environments. We see on a regular basis, the lack of performance, and overall damage most of these “natural” products produce once you’ve been in Colorado for a few months on Naturally Curly Hair.

    Hello. I’m interested in how to take care of hair during the cold winter months without using protective; not into braids or wigs.

      Hi Antoinette! Melissa can for sure blog about that more in depth in a future post, but for now, you want to keep your hair wet when putting in conditioners as well as products here in Colorado. Why? Because that traps in the moisture that is lost here in our semi-arid environment. In more humid climates you can use a T-shirt first to absorb extra water before applying products. This will help the curls to dry faster so hair doesn’t stay wet all day. Winter time in Colorado means dry air, which will wreak havoc on your curls. Keeping them hydrated by pat drying your hair after showering, not towel or blow drying, and a good leave in conditioner usually does the trick. Depending on your texture, we recommend a Moroccanoil Intense Hydrating Mask, or a Ouidad 12 Minute Deep Conditioning Treatment more regularly during the dry months here in Colorado. Both treatments come free with any paid hair service at the Salon. Of course, having a good foundation in how your curls are cut makes a big difference too.
