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.
