We decided to change the name because of confusion. Originally Weizy is the correct way Ethiopians would spell Wazy. We decided to change Weizy into Wazy like lazy making it easier to pronounce and read for many Americans. We still had customers calling in confuse so we decided to rename our business Way-Z Hair Salon before we brand it on our soon to be new storefront. We will still carry the alias Wazy's Hair Salon but will go on as Way-Z Hair Salon as our brand name. Our goal is to provide you with a great customer service, and with a great hair do or other beauty or hair salon services.
The trend that seems to be growing now is going natural. As we know relaxers and most hair products that do not stated natural or organic have chemicals ingredients in the hair product. A lot of people are starting to understand that and are transitioning to natural.
In this case some people are creating their own natural hair products. For those people I would like to tell them to be careful because even if the product ingredients are natural it doesn't mean it can not be dangerous. Too many of one thing can be bad for you and become toxic.
For example too much vitamin A, and E can become toxic into your body because these are fat soluble vitamins. These vitamins are stored into the body for some time. If a high level of these vitamins build up it will become toxic to your body. If your hair product contains such a high does of certain vitamins or minerals because of mixtures of oils, and other natural ingredients add it can become dangerous over a period of time. So make sure if you are creating your own product to know the chemistry for every ingredient, know the daily recommendation and do then do the math. Chances of and over dose may be rare but can happen.
Read the blog below about your skin absorb 60% of your hair product.
Scientist stated that up to 60% of the products ingredients you put onto your skin is absorbed. A good example of this you might of heard about already is known as the nicotine cigarette patches or some birth control patches. It admits medicine and nicotine into the body through skin. Something to think about when you put that next hair product onto your head.
Okay it starts out like this. You go to this very popular hair salon known to make your hair look extremely beautiful, so beautiful that it seems like magic. Well in some hair salon the magic is called very high heat that breaks down the hair cuticle layer so much that it will causes heat damage to your hair. (Heat Damage normally happens over a period of time and depending on the strength of your hair and the temperature used). Once this happens, there is no repair but to regrow your hair.
Every hair salon offers services that requires heat for your hair. The problem is that some hair salons may use extreme heat that will dramatically increase the risk of heat damage to your hair even with the use of hair protect-ant. You will have to be very cautious when you visit these places, because some hair salons, could either be unaware of the damages extreme heat causes (giving them the benefit of the doubt) , or just don't care because that is what makes them so successful and that is the tradition of their culture or hair practice. So when you go to the hair salon ask about the heat temperature. Ask if it is normal heat, or extreme heat use on your hair. Also I strongly recommend if you are natural, you might want to read the ingredients of the hair products. Check for active ingredients better known as chemicals. Use your own judgement because you are relying on the honestly of the hair stylist.

Vitamin A is involved in the growth and maintenance of hair, as well as the skin. Vitamin A regulates the synthesis of retinoic acid in the hair follicle. Vitamin A is added to skin care products and is beneficial for hair growth as well. It can be applied to the hair shaft and massaged in, as well as taken internally.
B vitamins help grow hair by aiding the body to handle stress and stress can cause hair loss. Inositol, one of the B vitamins, has been shown to speed hair growth. B12 is another B vitamin that prevents hair loss because B12 is a component of the hair itself. Many people are deficient in this nutrient, especially vegetarians, because B12 is mainly found in meat and eggs. The B vitamins are best taken together and are frequently sold with the label B Complex.
Vitamin C also helps the body absorb iron, which is needed to grow hair. The human body does not make its own vitamin C, so food or supplement sources are required, such as fruits and vegetables. The recommended daily dose of vitamin C is 1000 to 2000 mg a daily.
Taking vitamin D stops hair loss. Research published in 2009 reports that vitamin D has been used to treat skin conditions such as psoriasis for over 10 years. Vitamin D reduces hair loss by stimulating the hair follicle and the cells that form the hair shaft. Following research that shows a worldwide vitamin D deficiency epidemic, the recommended daily intake of vitamin D has been changed from 400 to at least 1000 IU per day.
Vitamin E builds capillaries in the body and improved blood flow on the scalp encourages hair growth. Adding 400 IU a day of vitamin E to the diet stimulates the hair follicles that grow hair. Vitamin E can also be massaged into the scalp to encourage blood flow to the scalp."
I read a blog post about Ethiopians having "good hair." Well i am an Ethiopian Hair Stylist and I think I can add to this. Some people may think it is because our nationality that we have good hair.
