Hair Down the Drain

I was going to a stylist for a year, well one day I wanted a change and called her and told her that I would like to add a couple of streaks to my hair and she agreed.  The day of my appointment my stylist forgot that I wanted streaks and she made up an entire batch of permanent color for hair, I asked her why so much just for streaks, well she thought I wanted my entire head colored; NO JUST STREAKS, but because she didn’t want...

I was natural from about 1999-2006. I had a baby in 11/05 and figured I no longer had time to spend 5 hours twisting my hair so I decided to get it relaxed.

Aphogee to the rescue!

You can believe this!  I have been relaxing my hair for years.  I am now 54 years old and almost totally gray.  I started using rinses and my hair grew faster than it ever had.  This past summer I got really physically active and did a lot of sweating and decided to use a permanent color on my hair – a brand name – and wear my hair braided.  The permanent color irritated my scalp so bad that the itch was almost unbearable....
