It’s never easy to find a hairdresser who can cut and style your hair just as you like it, but as an African or someone of mixed race it can be particularly difficult to find salons that specialize in your hair type. Not every salon is experienced with this type of hair and there is a certain reassurance that comes from having your locks maintained by someone who personally understands the way to treat your hair. In this list you will find the best African and multi-ethnic barber shops, salons and beauty supply shops in Stockholm. Many of these salons will also sell products specifically for your individual hairstyle needs. So whether you have dreadlocks, need your hair relaxed or are just looking for basic care, these are the people who can help you.

    Hi, im looking for a really good hair product for my hair. It’s breaks a lot, and i don’t know what african product to use. Need something that will help my hair grow, help please!!! 🙁

  • linda 23 Mar 2013

    Hey Annie. The reasons why your hair is breaking can be for different reasons, but make sure that your hair is moisturized all day everyday..deep condition and wash your hair around 1 times a week. You need to find a product that works for your hair..everyones hair is different. Find a good moisturizer and seal in the moisture with natural oil (such as coconut oil, olive oil or almond oil. Afrohair will not easily break ones its well moisturized.

    If you have any more questions, pls feel free to contact me on: [email protected]

  • James 27 Oct 2015

    Perhaps this list should be better called the “de-africanize your hair” salons in Stockholm. It is mostly all about shops that can replace our beautiful natural kinky hair with perms, wigs, chemical relaxation, etc. After all these years it still hurts me to see how the admiration for straight hair is so deeply rooted in our black people communities worldwide. If someone knows of a shop in Stockholm that refuses to sell all these straightening services and focuses on making naturally kinky hair looks beautiful, please post here in the comments! I would love to go there.

    • Lana 11 Jan 2016

      Ever heard of choices? As a woman who takes pride in her mane, I find it pretentious and frivolous when people automatically assume that those who wear weaves, relax their hair, etc do so because of ignorance, shame, etc. A LOT of people like to do different things with their hair and their is absolutely nothing wrong with it. There are women who obsess over things weave on due to self hate and so on, but there are also a large volume of women (probably more) who love a little something called variation. Let’s not turn everything into an I Have A Dream speech.

      • Ruth 17 May 2019

        He or she is right. There people who open these pages actually looking for specialist in afro hair but it’s always disappointing to find it’s mostly for weaves etc. Yes we wear weaves and braids for protection but we also love our hair our in it’s full nappy, kinky coily state and asking for someone literate in that area isn’t being ” pretentious or frivolous”. Yeah so it’s not a “I have a dream speech’ it’s reality. We need more salons that cater to our hair not straighten, relax, texturize and all that. It’s also a choice so maybe instead of being defensive you should actually listen to what he/she is saying.
        FYI: Pretentious is calling a salon “afro specialist” but can’t work on afro hair if not to modify it.

      • Ruth 17 May 2019

        I’m sorry but pretentious is actually calling oneself an Afro specialist yet they can’t work on afro hair without modifying it a way.
        Yes there’s a thing called choice which those of us who want to rock our natural hair deserve too. If I open a page talking about afro hair care and none caters to Afro hair if not to straighten, relax, texturize, weave etc then of course it’s disappointing and fustrating that up till now we are still somewhat illitrate about our hair.
        So before you get over defensive trying to invalidate a valid point maybe you should listen to what he/she is trying to say. I came here looking for an afro specialist and found none because they don’t render the services their titles depict and I also want.
        He didn’t assume wearing weaves means you hate your hair, he simply stated these shops claim specialty in Afro hair yet none actually cater to natural hair.
