Careful what you wish for. I made that same mistake a few years back. I went to a stylist I had heard very good things about but not one that I had been to before. If I had gone to Les Correa, who had done another mild relaxer on my hair a few months back, everything would have turned out differently. Well, to make a long story short, the stylist that I expected to do my hair didn't. She pawned me off on a less experienced stylist who underprocessed my hair. The result was bone straight, very dry hair. I hated it. It had no body at all. What Denise is saying, I believe, is that there are various types of tr product and, in the hands of a great stylist, can give you the hair you want. It's important to look through magazines of pics and find a style that you like. Take a few pics with you when you go in for a consultation. Show the pics to the stylist.
Also, where on earth are you located? You can get lots of good references for salons if you ask here. If you're in NY I can think of atleast four. California, Florida, Georgia, Massachusetts, we have them all. I guarantee you that someone here has probably been to a salon in your area and can give you the heads up before you waste your money. This process is too expensive to plop down money with a stylist that you don't know.
