I highly, highly recommend Melissa Stites. She's based at Salon Bellisimo in Southgate, MI but her website is There Once Was a Curl, and most of her booking is online. I found her last fall and she literally transformed my hair. She is a trained Deva stylist, so she cuts dry, curl by curl, and is just AMAZING at what she does. Then she showed me how to wash and style it so I would have no problem recreating the amazing curls she gave me. My hair has never looked this good. I literally will not let anyone else cut my hair now.
3A-ish, fine, low porosity
Low Poo: Deva LP
No Poo: Deva NP
Clarify: SM JBC Shampoo
Leave in: Usually none- experimenting with DC Set it Free and OM Leave in
Gel: Deva UDG
Deep Condition: SM Fruit Fusion or JBC masque
Oils: various...trying to find a prepoo I like
