HOW TO PREPARE FOR YOUR APPOINTMENT
Please note for all Beyond Texture services, its imperative that you come in with your hair in the following conditions:
- Switch to a sulfate free cleanser (aka shampoos).
- Refrain from using silicone based conditioners, and stylers and products that contain heavy oils and butters (i.e. Shea Moisture, Cantu, etc.)
- Water based stylers are best. (We'll cover this more together.)
- Hair must be worn down, in its most natural state.
- Completely dry with minimal product applied (day 1 or day 2 curls are preferred).
- Please take time to thoroughly detangle your hair while it is wet with a thorough amount of conditioner.
- Please no braids, ponytails, blow-outs, twist-outs, etc.
- Additional fees may apply in the event these conditions are not met.
These policies are to ensure that together we can create the best shape for your curls and achieve a customized curl journey just for you. At Beyond Texture, we understand that curls have a story, and we look forward to working together to resolve any heat damage, chemical damage or dehydration. That being said, together we will discuss realistic expectations for what’s to come in your curl journey.
At Beyond Texture we strive to deliver exceptional experiences regardless of where you are in your curl journey. Your beginning Beyond Texture experiences may be impacted by the history of your hair care routine (i.e. chemical damage, heat damage, hydration loss, tension manipulation, etc.) Together we will establish realistic expectations about the future of your crown. Please be patient as we navigate through these changes together.
