    La barbie I wondered that myself. I asked that question awhile ago and no one answered me so, I dropped it. Well, I have since found out.

    Dominican hairstylists supposedly are amazing. In the Washington Post about 2 weeks ago??? or maybe I received it 2 weeks ago they did an article about Dominican hairstylists. I was astounded. This was the second one that I've read.

    They come highly recommended. They have a following. They can do things that no one else can do-- better and cheaper.

    It was or they both were very interesting articles!

    Dominican hairstylists have acquired fame because they blow dry hair very nicely, but especially hair that is dificult to manage (kinki hair, curly hair). Also the techniques that dominican hairstylists use are much less damaging (hacerse los rolos primero) than the way traditiionally done in the US (Blowdry wet hair directly). Some Dominican hair products are very good for this type of hair. Many Black women in the US Love to go to Dominican salon for this reason.

    oops, I posted on the wrong site. If someone can tell me how to upload an article/link I'll post it here. Or if someone wants to read it it's Washington Post--Dominican Hair. Google it/ixquick it.

    i personaly loath dominican styling, darn hair drying thingy is so hot it burns my scalp, maybe good for "difficult hair" (what originally grows as an afro) but too painfull for my hair.
    end effect may be nice but the torture involved!
