Natural Hair Care

At Body and soul shop we have a scientific background  in hair.

We promote healthy hair as we help our clients achieve their own goals and hair needs.

A client with curly hair may have had some challenges managing their hair and resorted to the use of chemicals to straighten their hair to make it more manageable for use with a flat  iron. Over a period of  months or years the chemicals can cause serious damage to the client’s hair that eventually makes styling impossible.

At the Body and Soul Shop we help you seek alternative ways to achieve the hairstyle you want by using alternative techniques to support our client’s transition from  chemical use back to their natural hair texture. We support and follow up with our clients along the way with tips and knowledge to manage their hair care.

Hair has evolved and clients are enjoying the freedom of changeability while embracing a variety of  hairstyles from natural hair to various hair alternatives.




Rachel Dolezal Quits NAACP

rachelFrom People Magazine:

Rachel Dolezal has stepped down from her position as leader of the Spokane, Washington, chapter of the NAACP after her family accused her of lying about being black for many years.

In a lengthy statement to the NAACP Monday afternoon, she listed the many issues facing the organization, including police brutality and health inequities, but added, “And yet, the dialogue has unexpectedly shifted internationally to my personal identity in the context of defining race and ethnicity.”

Hair Extensions

VanityFairJuly2015Hair extensions have always been a part of our hair care regimen. Gone are the days when you needed to hide the idea that your hair was not all your hair. Now you can embrace the hairstyle you’ve always  wanted and achieve or explore what you would look like with long, curly, or straight  hair.

If you want to see how far hair extensions have come along in the last few decades take a look at Caitlyn  Jenner and Rachel Dolezal. For Rachel, she wanted a change from straight to curly hair to be able to  associate with African American curly hair styles, while Caitlyn Jenner wanted a glamorous, full body hair style. Both of these were achieved with hair extensions to get the look they wanted.

We take great care at the Body and Soul Shop in our one-on-one hair extension consultations to customize everything from ponytails (to be secured in a variety of ways) to hair clips that are quite popular and easy to wear. The most important aspect of hair extensions is the quality of the hair. We offer only the best and, you have more options today than ever before to choose from based on your hair needs and lifestyle.

Wigs have re-emerged in the 20th century and are again a popular choice among entertainers. In the past, we had Diana Ross and now we have Beyoncé. Both Diana Ross and Beyoncé have achieved fashionable and flawless looks by wearing wigs.

Not only can wearing a lacefront (the 20th-century term for wigs – also called a unit) give you a time efficient and easy-to-wear glamorous look, but it’s a great way to give your hair a break from the constant use of chemical services.

Who doesn’t want to look like a fashion icon in no time flat?
