Maintaining natural hair can be time consuming and challenging, so I was looking for other options other than a sew in or wearing a wig. I'd never had braids before and decided to give it a try. I was extremely nervous because I was not familiar with any shop in the area that could create a nice style that I would love. I started searching the internet and after about two weeks I came across the reviews for Senegalese African Hair Braiding shop. There were more positives than negatives so I decided to give them a call. I spoke with the kadeja and immediately had a wonderful conversation with her. She is a soft spoken, patient and very understanding woman. I told her I would like to come in and discuss styles that I thought would work for me. She is very knowledgeable and professional and she recommended the best braids for my hair. I made an appt. last weekend. She was very open to the date and time I wanted to have my hair done. Needless to say, I was a nervous wreck on the day that I was to get it done. She told me how to prep my hair before getting it braided (another sign of her excellent knowledge and years of experience). I was always told how sore my scalp would be during and after getting braids. She understood my concerns and told me she would not have the braids too tight. I get tons of compliments on my braids. Another great thing about Ms. kadeja and her sisters, they value their customers and do the very best to make the customer comfortable and satisfied. I am a customer for life and can not imagine going anyplace else to have my braids done. Try it for yourself and you will also be a believer. Oh and the prices are excellent!!
First time here but I was very impressed. First off, I never write reviews but I had such a great experience at Senegalese that I have too. I am new to the area and I was looking for a braiding shop, I did a lot, I mean ALOT of research to find the best braiding salon and came across Senegalese’s great reviews and decided to call. They answered all of my questions and I scheduled an appointment for the following day. Last Friday was my first time visiting Senegalese African Hair Braiding and everyone that knows me know that I’m very picky. Kadeja and her sisters were professional in every way. This experience is by far THE BEST experience I've had at any salon ever. This is no exaggeration. The two girls that were doing my hair made me feel very comfortable the entire time, I never felt out of place, and the girl that did the front made sure that I was okay. She made great conversation with me and was unbelievably funny. My braids were not tight (usually when I go to a braiding shop, my brains feel like they are coming out). I walked out a very satisfied customer. It's a good feeling when you feel like you got the best service for your money. The Senegalese twists are the best I’ve ever had. I get lots of compliments. I Highly recommend anyone looking for an amazing hair braider to go see Kadeja. I will definitely be returning.
I really like this braiding shop however the only problem I have is the HOURS of unnecessary waiting that I had to do each time I have been here. I have only been twice. I suggest not having the owner braid your hair because she will stop in the middle of braiding your hair at numerous random times to do other things. The last time I went I purposely scheduled the earliest appt (9am) and was there for 10 HOURS! The owner was also the only one braiding my hair for a few hours which was also a disappointment. Neither experience was an in and out experience. I suggest really stressing what time that you have to leave (especially when making early appts) so that the braiders will make their best efforts to get you out of there. Other than that the place has the best prices in the city! The braiders do very well. The braids are neat...not too tight (to where you get a headache) and the braids last 2 months (or longer depending). The environment is very upbeat and full of laughter (even though sometimes this can be annoying if your braider stops to participate in the conversation). I will be back in the future. I have received several compliments on my braids. I suggest coming here if you really want great looking braids.
