  1. Hi,
    I have African hair and have three question to ask.
    First I got a perm three years ago and now is the time to retouch it but i am questioning if i should go natural.
    My natural hair is much stronger and healthier than my permed hair but the only reason i have it is cause its easier to maintain what should i do? Second my hair line is fading cause of the constant braiding what should i do to help my hairline grow and also make my hair grow longer and luscious? Third What should you do to swim with natural or permed hair without a swimming cap?

  2. I was very impressed with your website and broad range of quality products.

    However, very disappointed that upon attempting to call the salon on three consecutive ocasions Saturday; I was unable to get through.

    Accessibility is extremly important as is good customer service.

    Kind regards

  3. Hi:)

  4. Hello Salon

    Ok I have a couple of points. I have natural hair and came to your salon and had my hair done by Isabel. I would just like to say ammmmazzzing job. Thank you very much Isabel. Isabel, took me through my hair regimen, she highlighted the good things I was doing but also told me about other things I was doing that was not suited to my hair type. I also learnt they way to use the products for my hair type.
    I had my hear pressed (first time.) She was very gentle looked after my tresses. The way she blow dryed the hair meant not to too much heat was applied with the straighteners. Which is fab. I have been doing my workouts and along with the products regime she recommended my hair is still looking fantastic. (5 days old) Very happy so far. Although slightly pricey. I had an excellent service and was pleasantly surprised. I will definitely be spreading the word.

    I just made an appointment online, however I think there needs to be more options for the natural hair or a free text option as I had to select something I did not want. so will have to call to change that, therefore wasted time booking online.
    Very pleased so far. I hope it lasts!!

  8. Hi

    I love the look of the salon. I have a major problem where I bought the photospecific relaxer index 1 for fine hair and i proceeded to do the relaxer but my hair still appears to be on the 4b/4c side with some softness. Im a bit frustrated since Im so busy, a working mother and was trying to make my life easy by perming my natural hair. I don’t know whether i have done more harm than good. I really need an analysis. I live near Croydon side so to trek up to Edmonton is approximately a 2 hour drive. I really need some advice since i was hoping for something a bit manageable.

    1. Hi Raynette, thank you for your email and apologies for the delay in responding. As you can appreciate its difficult to make recommendations without seeing your hair. The best thing would be to book a Consultation. You can call us on 020 8345 5621

  9. Hi I was wondering whether you do ombres on natural afro hair in purple and how much it’d cost if you were able to do this. Thanks 🙂

    1. Hi Wilma, thank you for your email and apologies for the delay in responding. The best thing would be to book a Personalised Colour Consultation. You can call us on 020 8345 5621

  10. Hi,

    I’m just wondering if you do faux lots and if so how much would shoulder length medium lots cost?



  11. Hi,

    I looked on your faux locs info page, but there are no listed prices (I did check the price list too). How much would it cost if they were a little below shoulder length and should I come in for a consultation first to be advised on what hair to buy, if my hair is suitable etc?

    Thank you for your time!

  12. Hello, I wanted to know what my face shape is! I put a picture of me against Michelle Obama and we have the same shape face.
    cheeks, smile, and the fold in our cheeks as we smile. What is her face shape? My face looks better when I wear my hair up with a bang (usually curl hanging down or a curly bang. I do not like cutting my hair, so I wear it like that. Show me what you have, I might try some of your suggestions. Thank you!

    1. Hi Wilma, thank you for your email and apologies for the delay in responding. The best thing is to book a Personalised Consultation so we can take into account your hair type, texture, length etc. Please call 020 8345 5621 to book.

  13. Hi Joesph
    Apologies for emailing you out of the blue- a few people have suggested that I get in touch.
    My name is Emily and I am a photographer making a book photographing children’s beautiful afro hairstyles.
    I was wondering if at Afrotherapy you style many children’s hairstyles? If you guys are interested I would take photographs and I would give you all the photographs for free to use.. and obviously the parents of the children involved.
    To see the series so far check out my website https://www.emily stein.co.uk

  15. Hi there
    I lost my hair to chemo but it’s growing back.
    It’s now about an inch long at its longest part and I would like to keep it fairly natural. For example having that curly look or wavy look without processing. Sorry I don’t know what they are called.
    I previously had shoulder length hair which was relaxed for many years but I would now like a new/ more natural look.
    My questions are, do you have stylist who are experienced with working with natural hair/ post chemo and would I have to pay for a consultation?
    Thank you

    1. Hi Sharon, thank you for getting in touch with us and well done for coming through the chemo treatment. We work a lot with natural hair and we have also worked with clients who have been through similar circumstances as yourself.
      I would suggest that you initially book a Consultation so we can have a look at your hair and what we can achieve. I would recommend to book with either Harriet or Michelle as they are the most experienced Stylists. Please call us on 020 8345 5621 to confirm an appointment

  16. I would like to know how much a short bob style, single (medium sized) plaits cost on my natural hair?

    Also if your able to do thus. Do I have to bring the hair and what type?

    Thanks Linda

    1. Hi Linda, Single plaits start from £120. We don’t provide hair but there is a hair wholesalers a few doors away from us that we can get the hair on the day. Please call us on 020 8345 5621 if you would like to confirm an appointment

  17. I would like to see photos of dread logs as well. I believe this will show that you captured all hair style.

  18. Hello,

    My team and I are producing a music video promoting beauty of black women with their natural hair and were wondering if we might be able to negotiate a deal on hair products which we could use for the models/dancers on set? Also some professional advice on non harmful & natural products which you would recommend would be very much appreciated.

    Kind regards

  19. Hi.
    I am looking for a place to get my 1 year olds first haircut done. Do you do this? I want hair cut down on sides and some left on top with maybe some product to help define his curls? He’s not mixed raced but dos have a curly texture. What would be the cost?

    1. Hi Taya,
      It’s quite border line. We would need to see the hair and then make a suitable recommendation. Please call us on 020 8345 5621 to book a Consultation

  20. FYI. This is not the salon to go to if you want to have a frontal sew-in. A lot of emphasis is put on them being “award winning” but when after 1 week you are left with your frontal moving and being unable to tie it up without it looking like false hair, the award winning results are not there to be found. Considering how much I paid for my weave and the frontal, and the service; the end result was terrible because I have now had to get rid of my frontal as they ruined it and obviously it cannot be used again. Would have appreciated it more if they had been honest and said that frontal were not their forte and would have saved myself the hassle and the money. When they install the weave it also takes them so long, I understand installing frontals can be difficult but I was in the salon from 2pm to 6:30pm? For why I don’t know. However, the staff are friendly and they seem to know what they are doing with natural hair and the treatments. Good luck!

    1. Hi, I’m really sorry to hear your experience wasn’t to the standard we would normally expect of ourselves and our clients expect.

      We are more than happy to re-do the weave. Please call or email me directly. 020 8345 5621 or email joseph@afrotherapy.com

  21. Hi,
    I would like to thank Afrotherapy for an excellent consultation session which answered all my questions, worries and concerns about my hair.

    The service I received was very good and attentive. They listenered without being rushed.

    I will be following up the advice given to me as I believe it would be the right thing to do if want the best for me and my hair.

    I would recommend them full heartedly.

    Thank you so much.
