So, I'm new to Seattle, and Yelp'ed "curly hair salon". I just read your review of Vasuda Salon in Downtown Seattle, which took me to your Youtube, which took me to your Tumblr. First, you are gorgeous (just sayin')! Second, thank you for your awesome review. I booked an appointment at Vasuda for next week, so hopefully my mop can be alive and free-flowing like your curls lol Do you use Deva Curl? If not, which product do you use to keep your curls looking hydrated? Thank you!!
Hey! I’m so happy you were able to find my review useful. I’ve been in Seattle for about 9 months and it has definitely been work to discover where to go, what to do, etc. I also update my blog a lot more often than my tumblr, so you can check there for more updated things. I’ve had great experiences at Vasuda, so I know you’ll be in good hands. I go to the downtown location, just an FYI. I’ve used Deva Curl products in the past, but I don’t currently use them. For my hair, I have found a lot of success with Shea Moisture Coconut and Hibiscus Curl/Style Milk (as a styler) and Kinky Curly Knot Today (leave-in). I usually seal my hair with coconut oil. Keep it simple. Curly Nikki has some great blog posts regarding the L-O-C method which helped me see a VAST improvement in the amount of moisture I could retain. Also, not being lazy and throwing a scarf on at night helped too. Good luck with your move to Seattle and feel free to reach out to me for anything else that may come up.
I left out another question for you Ishea, what oils do you use for your scalp....
For my scalp, I tend to alternate between coconut oil and castor oil… sometimes mixing the two together and working it in. When I have my twists in I usually oil my scalp about twice a week. Keep it moisturized without worrying about my hair having excessive buildup or getting weighed down.
Sorry to be a bother... Just a lil nervous never had twists/braids. What size is your twists and do you have the medium length?
Hey! Not sure if I ever answered this questioned - - but I have small/med sized twists with a longer length (down my back).

Do you know what it’s like to scrounge for change to buy non-edible necessities, use a credit card and EBT card (food stamps) during the same transaction, and then have the person in line behind you judge you for buying the ingredients to make a birthday cake?
People who disseminate false information about food stamps have never had to use food stamps.
