Half Relaxer – Half Jheri Curl!

Talking about hair horror, I have one for you!! When I was about 12 years old my mom was perming (straightening) my hair which was long and down right coarse.   Well, midway through she discovered she needed more than one box to finish.   So, instead of washing out what she had already done (with care not to wet the unpermed), and going to get another box, my dear, sweet, crazy, mother decided to mix what was left with her left over...

A Double Processed Disaster

I have been doing my hair myself for about 30 years.  I would occasionally go to a hair salon for a cut after braids or new style.  I permed and colored it myself.  I recently decided to start going to a salon to treat myself.  I found a hair stylist who did a good job on my hair.  My teenage daughter even liked the way she did her hair.  Well, one day I went and needed my roots colored but was convinced she could do both a touch up...

Fried, Dyed, and None on the Side

My poor hair has been through!  It has been fried, dyed, twisted, braided, weaved, cut…. You name it.   A few years ago, I was going to a salon.  I was wearing a wrap.  I knew nothing about hair, and I trusted the stylist.  He would put the perm on my hair and sit me under the dryer.  He said that it would help my hair to break-down faster.  Then he would wash it, condition it and put me back under the dryer.  Take me out, wash...
