I received a complimentary blowout at the Angelo David Salon in exchange for sharing my experience. Many thanks to Dion and the team for their service. As always, all opinions expressed are my own.
Just in time for Valentine’s Day and Fashion Week, I headed over the Angelo David Salon for a blowout on my natural hair. After protective styling for most of the winter, I felt it was time to switch up hairstyles. After being greeted by the front desk associate, I was immediately impressed by the decor in the waiting area and only sat down for a few minutes before heading to the shampoo area for a quick hair consultation.
I’m so afraid of heat damage, so I don’t straighten my hair very often. Since going fully natural in 2012, I’ve probably blown out my hair 5 times. I have been to professional hair salons but was nervous because I wasn’t sure if this salon had experience with naturals. I checked social media and found nothing, but I was glad I took a chance.
Once I sat down, I was asked if I was natural or relaxed. One thing I do appreciate about going to the salon is getting a professional’s insight on the right and wrong things I’m doing with my hair. When shampooing and conditioning, I was asked about the products used on my hair and was given a recommendation to deep condition and trim more often.
The whole drying and straightening process took about two hours total. Before straightening, my hair was dried via the tension method using cool heat and my stylist Dion, used tons of Redken Pillow Proof for a heat protectant to blowdry and flat iron.
We didn’t have time to trim, but I was really pleased with the end results. I guess that’s an excuse for me to go back. I loved Dion and the team at the Angelo David salon’s professionalism during my visit. Even though I was his last client, I still received great service. It was just an added plus that I had an event to go to right after my visit. I wore my hair straightened for two weeks before going back to curly without heat damage.
