One of the reasons I became a trichologist was to properly understand the science of hair so I can help our local braiders in Nigeria also understand what they were doing. As you move across Nigeria it is very common to see women with damaged hair and receding hair lines. The stylist don't know any better and their clients are even worse. It was a great day when I found that Farida of @lumonaturals and I were like minds when it comes to how we feel about the little or no education that our stylists receive before opening shop. This workshop is the first of many to come. I don't care if the stylist is illiterate as long as she/he can hear and understand basic pidgin English, such an individual can be taught to handle hair properly to avoid damage. Tag a salon owner who you think should be a part of this. #freehaircareworkshopforsalonsabuja #Abuja #Afrihaircareacademy
