WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - A South Florida hairstylist, who specializes in natural hair care, says in the last two weeks her clientele has increased as more women look to live a healthy lifestyle.
Lashonda Frison says since the story I did on natural hair aired two weeks ago her appointment books have gotten busier.” I get calls every day. I had about ten consultations since than about how they can transfer from perm to natural hair."
And Frison says after women who were on the fence about going natural saw the story on wptv.com, YouTube and several other websites, they decided to chop it off.
Frison says some women struggled with being accepted with their natural look, but once they saw the positive feedback they found the courage to become themselves. "We've been having permed people coming to me saying I'm thinking about going natural now. It really touched them."
On Facebook many people left comments. On YouTube, the video has more than 75,000 hits in just two weeks. And the emails have been pouring in from Chicago, Alabama, Las Vegas... even the US State Department where one employee showed his appreciation. And former CBS anchor Rene Syler showed her support as well.
While the positive feedback is great, Frison says it's not the number of hits on websites that matters. She says it is the message now echoing across the country.
"A lot of women are like 'I'm about to do it because I see I understand now this is me'....they really looked at whatever I do or say, it's going to affect my daughter in the long run."
