10 Best Afro Hair Salons in Paris


Are you trying to figure out what type of black hair you have? Afro hair has certain unique qualities and learning about your specific hair type can help you understand your mane better so that you can take care of it more efficiently.

A good salon should help you learn tips and techniques that work best for your type of hair.

Unlike the States, there’s a little bit more hair care education that needs to take place in Paris, likely because there’s not a huge hair salon culture in France like there is in America.

The Chateau D’eau area is basically a Black hair care neighbourhood.

Chateau D’eau and Chateau Rouge are basically like 125th Street in Harlem.

There are lots of beauty supply shops, but they don’t necessarily have some of the products that are specifically for natural hair.

To take care of the afro mane here are 10 of the best places in Paris
