Q: Good Afro Hairdressers in Guangzhou and toiletries?

HI
I'm moving to Guangzhou from UK beginning of March and the only thing I am worried about is my hair!!!

PLs someone recommend a good afro hairdressers who can relax and/or weave and any experience of these you can tell me would be great.

I really am in 2 minds on what to do with my hair before I go- whether I should leave my hair out hoping to find a hairdressers who can treat it, or weave it/ braid it up so that I can get it done again when I return for a short holiday back to the Uk in 3 months time.

Also can I buy black hair products out there. I've already bought about 3 months supply of absolutely everything i need just incase i find nought out there. But of course would be better to know I can purchase these out there so that I have more space in my suitcase!

I'll be working in Yuexiu district of Guangzhou.

Also how much is a bottle of shower gel and feminie hygiene products out there. Considering I can buy it here for £1 each, I've decided to stock up on these too Smile

Thanks all.

Sunshine,

You can get Afro Hairdressers in Guangzhou in Tianshu area, and buy really good weaves here but abit costly but worth the price.

I would recommend you braid your hair or do a weave before you get a good hairdresser. (could recommend a friend who does my hair)

The shower gel and the hygiene products are available here and depending on the brand you get for less than £1 each.

Hope this helps..

Hi Sunshine,

The best weaves are Peruvian or European weaves as they call then here and they are human. They sell in Kg's(Funny) but true and they would go for around 80usd for 3 pieces which would be good enough. 

I have never had my hair relaxed here but if i have info on this ill let you know.

Talk soon.

I haven't been to Guangzhou but most major Chinese cities have a college or two that heavily recruits African students which, of course, leads to the surrounding businesses stocking up on black hair-care products and stylists. In Wuxi, its Jin Nan University.

However that college, assuming there is one, will probably be somewhere out in the countryside. They usually are.

 I think you are wrong Mr. Mark i went to Shenzhen and i could not fond a stylist who has ever handled African hair leave alone to style it. My advice braid or weave just in case.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
