Snow’s Purely Naturelle is a natural hair salon located in the heart of Abuja. It is situated at Suite B106, First Floor, Sticks and Stones Plaza beside Oti carpet, Ademola Adetokunbo Crescent, Wuse 2, Abuja. When I joined the natural hair gang in November 2015, little did I know that I needed to ditch my regular stylist and find a trustworthy natural hair stylist.
When the reality dawned on me, I went to my most trusted friend, Google, and I found the closest one to me, Snow’s Purely Naturelle Salon. Ever since, I have become a loyal and faithful customer of this salon. When I started, I felt it was a bit pricey compared to what I pay when my hair was texturized. I was worried if I would be able to keep up, eventually I realized that maintaining natural hair deserves every penny you can spare.

Snow’s Purely Naturelle Salon Customer Service
For every brand, customer service is one of the essential features that I take note of. From the first time I visited Snow’s Purely Naturelle, the stylists were courteous and friendly. The next time I was there, it seemed as though I had always been a regular. They would make sure I was comfortable and be certain of the style I wanted before even starting. What’s most notable about their service is, ‘They aim to please their customers’.
Oh, I almost forgot, there’s a corner for tea, coffee or water, depending on your favorite. Isn’t that amazing?Are you a naturalista in Abuja? And you are worried on where to pamper you hair? Then you should be reading this. Click To Tweet
The aura in the salon exhumes and promotes natural hair which gives me a good vibe. All the stylists carry natural hair, and asides this, you could see beautiful pictures and paintings promoting natural hair on the wall. Of note is the neatness of the salon. As soon as a customer’s hair is done, the area is swept. For someone like me who is finicky and easily irritated when I see hair all around me, this is a plus.
Services and Prices
Snow’s Purely Naturelle Salon is strictly a natural hair salon and do not make any hair otherwise. They do not make use of any form of heat on hair like hot combs, straighteners or even hair dryers. My first hair trim was at this salon and I never even realized I was supposed to trim my hair from split ends to avoid hair damage, until one of the ladies told me.
Like I said earlier, if you are not used to the pricing of natural hair, just come with a fat purse. You do not have to come with any of your own product, they have their own made shampoo, conditioner and moisturizer. All these are what will be used for your hair. I mostly go there to make two twist strand which costs N4,000 washing inclusive.
If you are visiting them for the first time, ask for the price list to avoid stories that touch the heart. For naturalists who are used to these prices, it may not be a lot. Other services they render include treatments like hot oil, protein, kinky braids, all types of locs, protective styles with and without extensions, crochet braids, two twist strands among others.
They are open Tuesdays to Sundays only, and you can call in to book ahead of time.
Another additional plus for me about this salon is how they treat natural hair. You know the fear of, ‘Oh, my hair is too strong, I am worried about making it. How will it be combed?‘ The fear of yanking and horrible detangling is the beginning of wisdom for every naturalista. But with SPN salon, you have zero worries about that and this particularly has made this salon earn a 4.5 stars from me.
