This testimony touched my heart...

My name is Jackie and I was diagnosed with sarcoidosis in 2003. Sarcoidosis is an inflammatory condition that produces small lump of cells within the organs of the body interfering with the function of the organ. Alopecia is due to sarcoidosis. About 5 years ago I started experiencing hair loss and and slow growth in the center of my scalp. When my hair started thinning, a hairdresser suggested different types of products, hairstyles, and ways to take care of my hair, but really I needed to see a medical doctor. After many visits to my physician and dermatologists office and several treatments with very little results of hair growth in sight, I have just come to terms with my hair loss. It has been sixteen months since I have stopped putting chemicals in my hair. I am glad I made the decision even though my scalp in some areas is permanently damaged. Although it is embarrassing and emotionally devastating , I have adjusted. All I can say is God is Good!! After months of searching for a hair salon that specialized in natural hair care. One Sunday morning as I was flipping through channels on the television, I came across a program of the guests on the show was a young lady with a salon in the area. That young lady was Mushiya from The Damn Salon. I quickly ran to get a pen and paper to write down the website. After visiting the website I knew this was the salon for me. When you walk into the salon you feel welcome and a part of a group of friends. A wonderful atmosphere, friendly and talented stylists they are truly a cut above the rest. Just really good people.... they listen to you, explain the care that they are providing while making your hair look fabulous. This is  THE BEST SALON hands down! They care not only about your hair but about the individual. An experience surpassing price! And you will look fantastic when you leave. So ladies trust me when I tell you, SO WHAT; if hair loss is disturbing, try THE DAMN SALON. You'll be absolutely amazed at how great you can look. I know this to be true first hand. I am wearing the micro city twist and I look Damn Good! I am a customer for life. Thank you ladies!

How did I create this look?

To create this look, I used City Afro (Bulk Hair). I used a technique I created called the bridge technique which is similar to the crochet technique way before that existed. As you can see, once we added the hair to hair head, you cannot even tell she ever had a bald spot just because of how natural the hair looks and how seamlessly  it blends with our own natural hair. I then proceeded to twist her hair and bam!.. She was ready to conquer the word and face them with a confident new self. In my next blog, I will show you how we conquered this situation below!

I always tell the world, I am not in this beauty and hair industry because I love doing hair... In fact...I ACTUALLY DON'T. What I do love is changing women's lives and Hair is a platform that allows me to build women and ignite change abundantly. First of all, lets make it clear that BEING BALD NEED NOT BE EMBARRASSING. Yes, sometimes it may take time to get used to it, especially when one goes bald by force and not by choice. But ladies, once you understand the power of self confidence, you will understand that beauty lies in your hands. Just WALK like you are the shit... like you are the best thing happening since sliced bread with ALL your flaws. And let me tell you, those flaws will soon start trending and become the next style! Try it, and watch God work. And watch life change. But if you feel that you need a little extra hair to get you through it, then why the hell not. 

We have affected so many women's lives with the styles we created at the damn salon as well as our Runway Curls Hair line. And for this, I am thankful to Jackie and to all you women who allow us the opportunity to change your lives.  Thank YOU. Now Shop again.

With Love - Mushiya

    Mushiya and Kanko,
    I would like to begin by saying a few years ago I watched a show Cutting it in the ATL. I do not know how long it had been on, but it got me! After watching the very first episode that Mushiya was in, I knew that she was a woman to admire and pay attention to.
    After only a few more shows I knew that if I ever considered a wig (never had even thought of wigs or extensions) ever, but when I saw her work and the quality of the product she was putting out there I felt this is a woman that knows her business and enjoyed what she was doing.
    As it turns out, over the next few years I started loosing my hair. The doctor told me I had male pattern baldness, it happens! Yup! It happened to me! I was devastated, the doctor offered to put me on hormone replacement to keep what I had. Down side, side affects…cancer…. Uhm let me see keep the hair that I have and get cancer or go damn bald and no cancer….decisions decisions.
    Tilting my head, I smiled and said Awe hell no! I will go ahead and choose bald!
    After coming to that conclusion, I dealt with the gradual hair loss right along my hair line and decided to let it grow. It was a bit easier to hide the bald spots with longer hair. In the past I had always worn it short. I also stopped relaxing my hair, as I really started to enjoy my curls! As my hair grew longer it also became thinner, so much so that I knew I needed to look at other options….light bulb moment!
    That Damn Salon!!!! Mushiya!
    Once I made up my mind to explore wigs as an alternative, who else would I contact?!?
    I went to her website Runway Girls and what I saw was an “ah ha” moment! Like WOW…pretty, really pretty wigs!!
    In comes Kanko!!!!
    Kanko made the shopping experience wonderful. She was quite patient with me as she answered ALL of my questions (not having ever having a wig before, never being up close and personal to a wig before), as you can imagine I had a plethora of questions!
    Now, even when it came to the prices of the wigs, (you get what you pay for), Kanko never made me feel as though she was wasting her time speaking to me if at that moment I was not going to buy anything. She very politely told when I was ready she would be there to help me.
    A month later I was back on the website and chatting with Kanko again, with questions of course! One of which was, “so, if I order a wig now may I pay half of it and then upon completion, I can pay off the balance?” And…do you want to hear to most genius of answers?!? Kanko said “we have a payment plan!” MUSIC to my hears!!!!
    Ladies I ordered Dirty Girl right then and there!!!!
    4 payments later wig was paid for and like this story could get any better, Kanko (the goddess), completes my order and checks to see if it can be shipped out the same day! Now, before you all blow up the website asking for Kanko, she made me no definitive promises it could be sent out, BUT she went that extra mile and checked if it could. Now that ladies is customer service! There aren’t too many Kankos’ around…and if there are they are diamonds in a sea of imitation glass!!
    All that glitters is not gold, BUT Kanko and Runway Way Curls shine bright!!!!
    Many thanks to you Mushiya and Kanko for making my very first wig purchase a most wonderful experience! I am a customer for life!!!!!
    oh, ya, the wig was sent out the same day Friday and I had it on Monday!!!!! :)
