I met you long ago @ A For Sistas Only Event in Charlotte, NC. Long story short, I used a couple of your products and loved them! One was a creme moisturizer and an oil sheen. Your products were wonderful on my hair. I wore relaxed hair then…BUT now, I’m all natural…You were very nice, personable, humble, & down to earth. I never forgot that. Didn’t mean to write a book. God Bless in all of your future endeavors.

Thank you for supplying us with your amazing Hair Care Products. I use your locking serum (diluted) for my wet sets, and since my hair is wavy it helps keep curls for weeks at a time. After 2 wks I have to wash them out. Usually every other week I re-set. My hairstylist Michelle Phillips uses it with her others patrons now. They love the lasting effect it has on their curls. My Sorority Sisters love my curls & I’m always pushing your products.

The majority of my life, I’ve had problems with hair loss. I started wearing a wig in the fall. Hair Zen master Barry Fletcher started treating my hair in a way tailored for my texture. By spring, I stopped wearing the wig. My self-confidence improved and my family and friends tell me I look younger.

For 13 years I was a hair stylist. My specialty was cutting hair. I learned to cut hair from an Italian guy. I traveled around withhim (as a mentee) for about 2 years and watched him cut hair while I was still a student. I serviced a Multicultural clientele. That was my specialty in the early 80s – a time when not many African Americans were into cutting hair. And (hairicon) Barry Fletcher, I really admired his work. I thought he was an amazing stylist.
Thanks for the wonderful experience. You’re the total package: professional, experienced, creative, and funny. Just a thought – no one would need to see a counselor if they had you for a cosmetologist.
The twist like this is by far my favorite Barry Fletcher product. My hair is in its natural state and I used to search and search for something to slick my hair back for buns or pony tails. This stuff is amazing. Unlike other hair products it contains no water so you don’t have to worry about flyaways and your hair not laying down because it is reacting to water. I have used this product about four years now and it still does the job. It’s all natural which proves the point that you don’t have to used alcohol to hold the hair. Great product!
I had the pleasure of meeting you at the recent Atlanta’s Bronner Bros. show. You took the time to educate me a little about hair, relaxer and your products. I was convinced about buying a few things because you focus on moisture. Before I left your booth we shook hands and I was empowered and knew that I would begin using your products. Since the show, I have been using Mean Protein, Revitalizing Conditioner, Grease and Glo N Grow. I am highly pleased. Needless to say, I am ordering a new line of your products, and will begin to retail as well. As a stylist, I thank God for your vision of hair care products that really work. I am looking forward to one day meeting you again during future events. I appreciate YOU!!!
I had a really wonderful experience at The Palace Salon with Barry Fletcher! Going in I was really anxious about what to expect as I knew my hair had been tortured over the past year and wasn’t sure if it was salvageable. Barry took the time to listen to me about what I’d actually been doing to my hair myself and my at least biweekly visits to Dominican stylist for a roller set followed by a red hot session under a hood dryer topped off with a steaming hot blow dry and roller brush blowout. Hey, it may work for some, but my fragile hair and tender scalp began to rebel in the worst way with non stop hair shedding and tender to the touch scalp soreness. The breakage was pronounced and in places I hadn’t even realized until Barry began parting through it to show me. After his examination, Barry comforted me by explaining the texture/type of my hair and that the damage was reversible. From that point, he proceeded to provide me the most gentle product treatments and handling of my hair and head than I have ever experienced. I usually ask a ton of questions when receiving any kind of salon service …”What’s that do? What’s that for?…What are you going to do now?…” But, not this time. Which means I must have quickly developed a trust relationship based on our interaction. In the end my hair actually looked longer than before and that’s after an extensive trim, which goes to show how getting to healthy hair is key. The style Barry chose for me was complimentary and conservative – so he sized me up well too. He asked my interest in products as we settled up and I opted for his Book “Why Are Black Women Losing Their Hair” expressly because he was so knowledgeable. Barry gifted me with a product he felt helpful in my hair maintenance. Barry is a gentleman and a hair genius who worked his magic on me and I’m hooked…Christa Jones — I recently experienced an serious outbreak in my scalp and following doctor’s orders I could not get a relaxer nor could I get my hair braided for 8 weeks. I was so happy when the doctor finally gave me the green light to get a relaxer. I called a local stylist and told her about my scalp condition. I set up an appointment with her that day. She looked at my scalp and took me to her bowl. She used the Cool Stimulating Shampoo on my head and it felt wonderful! She proceeded to use the revitalizing conditioner as well. My scalp felt so good. She wrapped my head with your wrap foam and the moisturizing glo cream. While I sat under the dryer I read your book about black women and their hair. It was so insightful and it showed me how to take care of my hair in between visits. When she finished I felt like a million bucks! And I am pleased to say that my hair has grown 4 inches, my hair is fuller and healthier, it’s not greasy. The biggest test is that I am now “seen”. I used to be invisible. When I walked down the street no one paid attention to me. Now people are smiling at me, men are approaching me! Who knew self-esteem was attached to my hair!!! Thank you for this wonderful gift!
I would like to take this opportunity to say “Thank You” Barry Fletcher for providing such wonderful products that’s important to “hair care”. I started using your products about three years ago and I can definitely see the difference in my hair such as the texture, the feel and how long my hair styles last when I use your products, 90% of the products I use on my hair now are your products, I also take them to hairdresser with me. I’m in my mid-40’s and my dermatalogist told me I was thinning in the center of my head and around my edges. I started using your product “Root Therapy”, I now have hair where there used to be bald spots. I tell everyone that I know about your products. Again “Thank You” for all that you do in the interest of HAIR CARE.

I love your products! My beautician introduced them to me and they are the best I have ever seen!!

I am very pleased and satisfied with the many products I have purchased. I am a life customer! I have spread the word to every female I know about how these products really do have the ingrediants needed for great hair care! Thanks for taking care of my hair. You all are something special.
My hair is very healthy now because I’m using your products.
I love your conditioner. It felt so good on my scalp, almost therapeutic, I was reluctant to rinse it out. Now, I’m looking for a salon that carries your relaxer. Your conscientious dedication towards your career is admirable plus you’ve got a million dollar smile!
I would like to thank you for the wonderful information and products presented in your seminar. Your discussion on your new book, Hair Is Sexual, was quite stimulating.
I enjoyed your show and the information you shared with your guest. I have admired and followed your work since cosmetology school. Thank you for taking the time to speak and write on healthy hair care. It is so needed and as it stands you are the only person to step up and do what is needed.
just wanted to show my appreciation for the exceptional hair care products. My favorite is the creme moisturizer that comes in the little egg-shaped container. After I bought my first one a few months ago, I went back to the store and bought 4 more! This is such a great product.
I was first introduced to the Egg Creme when I read about it in an Essence Magazine article. I quickly ran that very day to a nearby store location and picked up an egg. This pomade worked miracles for my hair! I love my ringlets!
My daughter and I love your book. It is a God send; it’s so educational and informative we stayed up half the night just reading it and taking notes!
I used Barry Fletcher Products this weekend and it made my hair feel so good. I read the hair book and I was really into the book so I went out and bought the product and I love it! The next day I came to work and everybody is talking about how good my hair looks. I never knew how to wrap hair but after reading the book I wrapped my hair and got so many responses from people. I told everyone that I used Barry Fletcher Products and now they all want to try it.
T. Gibson, Personal Touch Salon
The products were excellent and I really loved the book “Hair Is Sexual”. It really gave me a different feel and outlook on hair. I not only found a better product with the Protection base and the relaxer but the Twist Like This and Loc Set Serum were amazingly awesome! Now I can order everything from one company and not one product here and there. Thanks to Michael for everything that you did to make my order successful and for making me feel confident in doing business with Barry Fletcher’s Company.
I am a caucasian woman who used your Holistic Hair Care products (shampoo & that wonderful conditioner) by chance. I was thrilled with the results! Barry Fletcher products are the best!
My cousin Carla Baker used your products at her hair salon ‘Carla’s Hair Affair’ in St. Petersburg and I have been hooked every since. I am in the Navy and it’s good to know that “you” care about “our” hair. I just wanted to say thank you for what you do!
My hairdresser has been using Barry Fletcher products on my hair for about a year now and I confess my hair is the healthest it has been in my adult life. I love the products and will purchase them online .
I recently purchased your book and I have to say it’s one of the best things I did for myself this year! It has a lot of information.
Shirley M. (Howard) Miller
For years as a Maryland resident, I was a customer of Barry’s and absolutely loved it. I truly miss your services since we relocated to Virginia several years ago. Now with children, it’s simply impossible to come across the waters for “Great Hair Care.
I just wanted to say thank you for the wonderful products that I have found. I read about the products about a year ago in the Essence Magazine. I ordered the Cool Stimulating Shampoo and Conditioner. I must say that I have never found anything like it before. I am totally hooked on your products. I even use it on my daughter’s hair!
M. Denise Gardner
I received your information from a member at church and her hair is greatly gorgeous! I have your web site information and I will be placing my order for my next touch up kit. In the meantime, I am going to order the Herbal Grease to begin until my next relaxer is due. You are a Gift from God and I thank God for the wisdom he has imparted unto you to help Woman with our hair! Thank you and much love and success!
May God continue to bless the work He has assigned to your hands. My hair feels wonderful; so soft and shiny. My scalp feels so good after using the Glo N Grow and Root Therapy!
Your company is fantastic! I ordered on Tuesday and received everything on Thursday! Amazing. Also, I will continue purchasing the conditioner and the grease I ordered. My hair hasn’t felt this good in a loooooong time. I hate to name drop, but you guys put Carols Daughter hair products to shame. Thank you!
I am extremely pleased with the results of my hair and that of my daughter. We have been using your products for nearly one year. Not only have I noticed that my hair is healthy and thick, but I get lots of complements from my family who has noticed the difference in my hair. The results in daughter are great. Your products make it easier for her to learn to care for her hair. Recently, I have also encouraged my son to use the shampoo for his scalp problems and I will watch for expected favorable results. Thank you so much for giving your talent and helping us to have healthier hair. As you know, a black women’s hair certainly holds one of the keys to her happiness and self confidence.
Good day Mr. Fletcher, I had the pleasure of meeting you at the Black Bussiness Expo in Houston a weekend ago. I was one of your last sales on Saturday. When I tried the Instant Moisture Spray instantly I saw a difference. What I really love is that it didn’t fry my hair when I curled it. I gave some of my clients your web address so they can check you out. They liked the lightness of the Instant Moisture. Something interesting happened, my son was with me at the expo and he saw you. When I was watching the cutting dvd I bought, I sent him away but he peaked and said “thats that man at the expo”! I said yes; he was tripping cause you were on tv. I sent him away again and he came back and asked me if he could do ladies hair. At first I didn’t understand when he said do ladies hair. My first reaction was no and get away but when you came to mind and I remembered our conversation and thinking about all that you have done as well as your spirit. I was overwhelmed; my son is only six but he could see that you were something good to be and you are a black man. To a single mother that means the world; more than anything in all my hard work, still my son is my focus. He may change his mind a million times before he reaches age but I’m thankful he was up on it and peeped game of what a manly, smart, sucessful black man looks like. You already know but you have a lot to be humbly proud of. Thank you!
I spent a many of Saturdays’ in your mom’s basement with my cousin, aunts, and my grandmother waiting to get my hair done. WOW………my mother’s hair was damaged from her over- processing her hair, but when she came to you. You cut her hair like Anita Baker, before AB got the cut. This hair cut has never went out of style. It was your creativity that give the world short & sassy. @ 15 yrs old I was very proud of saying Barry Fletcher does my hair!!! Peace
Barry, Since visiting the Hair Palace in December, I’m enjoying the products and am receiving extra compliments on my hair:) I’ve also taken your advise regarding the 100% peppermint oil, researching side affects of the 50,000iu of Vitamin D, etc., and am looking forward to new results. You have a unique salon and approach to hair care. Enjoyed the visit, sure I’ll visit the salon again, and happy new year. Your Hampton Roads VA customer, Renee
This occured in April – We had our first warm weather of the season, My hair was not it’s usual self that day. So I applied the instant moisture leave in conditoner to my hair. I did not wet my hair either and I tell you my hair received new life. My coworker asked me did you go to the salon again your hair looks so fresh!
I am one of the consumers that attended your hair show a few weeks ago at the salon located on Baychester Avenue, in the Bronx. My sister-in-law and I were the only 2 consumers there at the show and I am so happy to have purchased your products. These products are by far the best products I have ever used. I have gotten so many compliments on my hair within the first week of using your products. I was so exicted to share your products with others, I used the Herbal Potty in my mom, sister -in law and daughter’s hair. I told all my co-workers about your products and gave them the website where they can order the products. I will be placing another order very soon because all my products are almost finished from trying it in other peoples hair. LOL. Thank you for taking the time to create such a great product. I will be a customer for life.
I absolutely love your products. I’ve used your Twist Like This for years and your shampoos and conditioners. After the birth of my first daughter, I wasn’t aware that I would experience so much hair loss but your Mean Protein regained my confidence in my once “George Jefferson” hairline. I’d like to thank you so much for making such an amazing product. Out of the 5 years I’ve been natural and have faithfully used your products, I have only been disappointed once but that was due to slow shipping. Please consider going mainstream with your products. Not only is it the best but it is very affordable compared to other natural hair care products. Your expansion is greatly appreciated and needed!!! Your biggest fan!
When Your Crown of Glory Turns to a ‘Frown of Gory’….Turn to Barry Fletcher Products! Yes, I said that, because it is true. How many of you have gone year after year to salon after salon and stylist after stylist only to be let down and utterly disappointed time after time after time? Can I get a witness? You know the drill. You’re excited, looking forward to the new ‘do’. And, you get it….for a day, and then what? 24 short hours to the end of the shine, the bounce, the compliments, your confidence, and your smile. Yikes! That is quite a loss in such a small period of time (not to mention those long gone greenbacks!). “Child, you should have seen my hair yesterday”. Really? Who cares? Let the ‘drill’ begin again….find new salon and stylist- check; trust someone new to do what is best for you, your image, your hair – check; get let down again – check, and oh, check!Well, that used to be my story, but not anymore! Hear me now. It all felt the same when I found Mr. Fletcher….driving to the salon for the first time and first meeting, excited, but….hmmmm, there was that familiar feeling of trepidation again! But, that day, the worried energy was all a waste of time and my ‘drill’ ended six years ago. My hair has never felt or looked better, and has never been this silky, shiny, and healthy. Who knew a good dose of hair and ‘care’ expertise, an excellent line of products, and some tender ‘hair-ducation’ would do the trick? It did. And, why? Because MY new stylist truly cares about my hair and armed me with the information I needed to ‘care’ also. Now my hair looks fly before I leave his salon chair AND long, long after! Hello ‘happy’. Hello ‘confident’. Hello ‘best face forward’. I now proudly wear my ‘crown’ every step of the way and I owe it all to Barry Fletcher Products and The Hair Palace and Salon. Do yourself a favor and turn that frown upside down….you and your CROWN deserve it, too. Thank you, Barry!
