Please arrive to your appointment in a defined Wash and Go Style (don't worry, do your absolute best).
And if you don't know how to accomplish a wash and go, please show up to your appointment with hair that is free of oil, cleansed, styled and detangled within the last 7 days. If you have been using oil/butters in your current routine I will need you to at least detox (scroll down for an explanation) your hair 14 days prior to your appointment.

What is a detox?
A detox consist of eliminating oils, butters and silicones from your routine at least 14 days prior to your appointment. It is recommended that you use a clarifying shampoo, followed by a moisture poo at least 2 sessions prior to your scheduled appointment.
Who should detox?
Detoxing is recommended for clients who are currently on a routine that consists of oils/butters. It is also recommended for those who co-wash exclusively, use alternative shampoo methods, those using mild cleansers and those using products containing silicones (they build up on the hair).
What should you use to detox with?
Clarifying Shampoo- Kinky Curl Knot Today, Malibu Un-doo Goo
All Purpose Cleansers- AG Blance, Trepodora Goji Berry Hair rinse (if you choose these options you will need to detox for at least 28 days prior to your appointment using either of these cleansers for at least 4 shampoo sessions). No need for moisture poo, but you can use if you like.
Moisture Poo- Innersense Hydrating Cream Hair Bath
Why is detoxing important?
Being able to service my clients efficiently is top priority for me, and doing so will require the participation of the clients that plan to partner with me. It will also make for a more pleasurable and swift service for you as well. Thus leading to less time spent in the salon.
