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 and my roots.  Well, I have thick hair that is just above my shoulders.  This is……. until the touch-up.  Half of my hair fell out.  It broke off in patches and I have been forced to wear my hair in a ponytail to cover the patches.  I have sections of inch long hair and sections of the regular length.  I was in shock for a week!  My stylist is now giving me free treatments to help strengthen my hair.

  1. One day I was bored with my long texlaxed hair and so I decided (on a whim) to give myself a partial sew in…which I have never ever done. I cannot french braid and I wanted to add “blonde highlights”. Well after a lot of pinning, braiding,tucking, hiding, and sewing I realized it looked like I had Top Ramen stuck to the top part of my head. The hair was too short, too cheap, and much too blonde. Since I was no longer bored and thoroughly disgusted I started cutting out the black threads..frantically alomst. Sure enough I completely cut off one of my braids. Top of my head. After the 2 hour “fun” I had a chunk of curly hair about 2 inches long. I lkearned my lesson.
