Next Course August 12th 2024


Led by CURLiD's Lead Trichologist, Samantha Stewart MIT, our one-day salon training course delves deep into the intricate world of hair and scalp health, empowering stylists with invaluable knowledge and practical insights.

Analysis and Consultation

Understanding the importance of hair and scalp health is crucial for exceptional customer service. Afro and textured hair integration into cutting and styling practices was only standardised in 2021, leaving many hairdressers without adequate textured hair training until then. This gap often led textured hair clients to seek services far from their area, face higher prices or negative salon experiences.


Our Textured Hair and Scalp Health Course directly tackles this issue by emphasising analysis and consultation techniques. You'll learn to conduct thorough pre-salon appointment assessments to identify specific concerns, ensuring effective solutions for your clients' needs.

Our training prioritises scalp health as the cornerstone of healthy hair. You'll delve into scalp anatomy, layers, and the scalp microbiome, gaining insights into common disorders like dandruff, seborrheic dermatitis, and psoriasis. This equips you to recognise signs and offer appropriate guidance. Understanding the connection between scalp health, overall well-being, and external factors enables you to provide holistic solutions, ensuring your clients achieve both beautiful hair and a healthy scalp environment.



Our training delves deep into hair structure and care, covering hair follicle anatomy and the growth cycle. You'll explore various hair types, patterns, and behaviours, and how external factors affect hair health. This knowledge allows you to recommend suitable products, treatments, and techniques for maintaining healthy textured hair. Whether addressing porosity, texture-specific routines, or hair shaft disorders, this course equips you to meet diverse client needs confidently.

As part of our commitment to continuous learning and professional growth, we host monthly Q&A sessions for 3 months post training exclusively for attendants of our Textured Hair and Scalp Health Course.


These sessions provide a unique opportunity for stylists to receive direct support and guidance from our experienced trichologists, on various topics related to hair and scalp health and customer experiences.
