Wavy/Curly Boy

Hello! My name is John and I live in eastern NC & am training to be be a cosmetologist. I have type 2B-3A hair, depending on how I style it, what products I use, the weather, and if I diffuse or air dry. I have color treated hair but it is relatively healthy thanks to the right combo of products & OLAPLEX.

I am am OBBSESSED with DevaCurl products, especially the low poo delight shampoo & one condition delight, ultra defining gel, supercream, buildup buster, and melt into moisture masque. I typically cleanse my hair every 3-5 days, and will cowash my hair once or twice (depending on sweat, oil, and frizz level) at least  w/ my one condition delight or a moisturizing no poo cleanser (such as the DevaCurl no poo decadence) during each week. 

Some other products I love are the ColorProof TruCurl collection (especially the oil & conditioner, which I typically use as a leave-in) Paul Mitchell Awapuhi Wild Ginger oil & blow dry spray, and as mentioned previously, olaplex. Olaplex saved my hair and has made me give up the flat iron and embrace my texture 💜

Follow my hair page on Instagram @thehairwitch_333 for some pictures of my work and mystical hair advice. 

If anyone has any questions, feel free to ask (and I will do the same).

    @Guide 65 thankfully we have several black/multicultural instructors and they have taught us quite a bit of how to care for curly/natural/ethnic hair as well as different styles and methods to naturally loosen or define our curly haired clients. I still have researched quite a bit on the subject myself over the years, so I was already pretty confident in my curly hair care methods before my formal training!
