Dominican Blow Out Review- Natural Hair Experience

Natural Hair Dominican Salon Experience
This weekend I had the opportunity to visit a Dominican Hair Salon. This is where I received my very first Dominican Blow Out. I entered the salon at 1:00pm on a Saturday, and to my

surprise all of the seats were filled but no one was waiting in the the lobby area. As soon as I signed in, I was asked to come back to the shampoo area. I quickly scanned the product shelf, and spotted gallon bottles of a product called "Dominican Magic". The assistant quickly washed and conditioned my hair using it, and then seated me in the second chair from the door. In most salons, this means that you'll be getting your hair service done by a Junior or Senior stylist.

A older Dominican woman walked over and introduced herself as "Ruth". She had a very pleasant with a bubbly personality. At one point she cranked up the music and began to dance. She pulled the plastic cap off my head, added a heat protectant and put my hair into 5 sections. This is where I braced myself for the HOT AS HELL hair dryer. In the past I heard so many horror stories about Dominican blowouts, that I actually braced myself for the worst. It was hot but, she did a good job of protecting me from the heat. It took her about 15 mins to blow out my curls, and after that another 10 mins to flatiron. I couldn't believe how fast she was able to turn my curls into smooth, soft, straighten hair. My total salon visit was 45mins, and that was on a Saturday afternoon!

I'm very pleased with my hair and my Dominican Salon experience. It was worth the $40 bucks and I plan to make a trip back in the near future. Have you ever had a Dominican Blow Out? What was your experience?

I recently got a Dominican for the first time as well. My process was different than yours because my hair was roller set, then blow dried, then flat ironed. I paid $45 because they charge extra for natural hair, I think the regular price is about 25-35. I thought it was worth the money because my hair was silky straight it actually looked and felt straighter than when I used to get relaxers. I had some issues with breakage after but I think it is because I am transitioning and the heat was too much for my fragile ends. I don't think I will try it again until after I've completely transitioned and see if I get the same results. I really enjoy your blogs and videos so please keep up the good work.I recently started a blog and I have some of my pics and experiences with my blow out. Please stop by when you have some time. Thanks and have a blessed day.

Hi Toy, I have a question. As a young girl my hair has always been very, very thick and coarse. My mom started sending me to beauty parlors when I was about 8 yrs old to get a press and curl, where a straightening comb was used to give me a "hard press" I think they called it back then.
Anyway, over the years my mom put perms in my hair because she couldn't handle how thick my hair was, not to mention the fact that I would be screaming and crying because I was tenderheaded. Now I am 48 yrs old and have been using perms since I was a teenager. My hair isn't damaged, I'm simply tired of having to touch up my hair every cpl of mths. My hair can't go longer than that or I wouldn't be able to comb it! I recently got my hair cut into a short style as well as getting a touch up. I watched your videos on how to transition and now have the bug. Since my hair is already cut short, how would my transition go? I mean, my roots get so coarse and thick it scares me to think of not getting a touch up. But, since my hair is short now, would my transition be easier than say if I tried to let it grow out? I hope I am making sense. I just dont want to look a hot mess while trying to go natural. Help!

Hi Desiree
First, I want to apologize for the late response. Second how are you coming along as of late? I transitioned with roller sets. It was the best method for me and my hair. If you find that roller setting is not right for you, you can always try braids or hair weaves.
