Interview with Alisha Davis

This lady right here is a mastermind of the natural hair care world. When I first came to her in August 2016, my hair was a HOT MESS !!!  But with the proper treatment, care, and more importantly patience, my hair just flourished and is still blossoming. Please check her at Real Natural Salon or see her personally at 12111 W Markham St #420,  Little Rock, Arkansas 72211 (501)353-2911

SoBeautyMarked: What made you decide to pursue your brand?

Alisha Davis - It started about eight years ago. A hairdresser friend of mine was coming out with a product called Hair Thermalizer. This product was a hydration treatment that helps you transition without breakage or having to do a Big Chop. The natural hair trend was just now hitting Arkansas. So I transitioned my whole relaxer clientele to natural by using this product. So I came up with Real Natural Solutions Salon, which I shorten it to Real Natural Salon, and my hair care line is called Real Natural Solutions. Once I did my studying and practicing and perfecting my skill in the natural hair industry, I found out that women really need advice on what to do with their hair.

💜 My Natural Journey 👑

I went through process of going NATURAL and MAN was it a long process!!! I love that creamy crack, but I haven't had a perm since October 2014. I will not do the "BIG CHOP" though because I was so scared to do it. My hair grew pretty fast but it's just something about doing that chop. I think NATURAL hair is so beautiful. My mom and my sister thought I was crazy for going through with this journey but I wanted to explore my NATURAL hair and discover my original curl pattern. I took  the process very slow. Right now, I'm wearing a wig. Next month, I'll be putting my hair in two strand twists. This is my journey....

When I visited my hair stylist last year and I told her that when I was getting perms, I had to get them every month (yes, girl... this is true) because my hair grow very fast, it's thick and unruly. She told me my hair was doing that because my hair was never meant to get a perm and it was "misbehaving" and I thought "Wow, that logic makes so much sense!"

My hair has grown soooo much!! But don't let the shrinkage fool you, I got that length boo!

Take a look into my journey....

I ❤ My Melanin

I love my melanin. It's pure. It's magic. It's art. It's radiant. It's raw. It's edgy. It's brilliant. It's smooth. It's luscious. It's fantastic. It's tasty. It's shiny. It's flawless. It's sensual. But most of all.... it's beautiful!
