Hair Talk with JoJo the Hair Care Expert
Beauty and Barber
Q: JoJo I’m an older hair stylist. I’ve been doing hair almost 30 years. I recently went to a hair show and talked to other stylists from my era, and we shared the same story. We’re struggling to stay in business. A lot of our clients have moved out of state, retired, or died. This new millennium stylist has everybody in weaves. Nobody has hair anymore. I tried gluing the hair onto the weave cap, but it’s not for me. JoJo, what’s an old stylist to do?
A: This is an ever evolving industry. Staying relevant is no easy task. If you feel you can’t keep up with the newest trends, you need recognize your strongest skill and market to your strengths. You can use social media just like these millennials to attract your target market. Somebody out there wants what you can do. You just have to find them and be able to deliver. Tone your skills, put on your smile, and go make it do what it do.
 Q: JoJo I wear a press and curl, but between the summer heat and my hot flashes, I sweat my hair out as soon as I get it done. I used to get a relaxer and wet set. Do stylists still do those? I know that everybody is going natural, because relaxers were breaking everybody’s hair off. Mine was always in good shape and long until my stylist died. Now, no one can do it. I had to get what they knew how to do, and it’s not a good press. So, are those styles gone forever, because I’m missing my perm.
A: Yes stylists still do relaxers, and wet sets. You just have to find a good one. When done properly, these styles are a great summer option. Unfortunately the lack of training in relaxer application and hair care has caused massive hair loss. I went to beauty school, believe me, training is important. Finding the right stylist can be tricky. Ask questions, look at pictures of their work, look at the work they’re doing while you’re in the salon, and look around the salon to see if anyone there is doing the kind of work you want. If you have to change chairs, change.
Q: JoJo I had my weave removed, and my hair is looking real thin. I was told to give my hair a 2-week rest, before reapplying a new one. Will this rest help thicken my roots. I can really see through my hair to my scalp. Is there an oil I can use to help, and what kind of style can you suggest that won’t cause more damage while I’m resting? I still have to go to work.
A: Resting the scalp between weaves or braids is a good idea. Unfortunately thin scalp usually means traction alopecia. That’s when braiding or pulling at the scalp destroys the connection between the hair bulb and the blood supply. When that happens, permanent hair loss is usually the result. These pretty long styles can be addictive, but the constant pulling at the scalp can cause baldness. I suggest you wear the styles for no more than two months at a time, then give yourself a month or two without. Give your scalp time to recover. Wigs are an excellent option during recovery. Try different colors and styles. Natural styles work too but try to avoid braids during this time, because they can cause damage also.
