Do you have a "hair horror" story?
I think that most women have a least one if not more. I personally have had a whole life filled with hair horrors which of course lead me to develop Sizta 2 Sizta. At the time it's not funny and can be very painful but years later you can look back and laugh and maybe encourage someone else who might be going through similar issues with their hair.
I would love if you would share your stories as I did to help up lift and motivate other women who may be having hair issues so that they will know that "this to shall pass."
To submit your hair horror story please fill out the form below and it will be listed to help encourage other women with their personal hair issues.
Thanks for sharing!
Ok, I see that you ladies need a little motivation to share your stories. I'm going to share an event that happened to me in 2005 shortly after giving birth to my daughter Aryanna that devastated me and reminded me why I don't trust just anyone to lay hands on my hair.
In the summer of 2005 shortly after giving birth to my daughter I decided to treat myself by having my hair professionally washed, conditioned and styled. I had been doing my own hair for years and wouldn't let anyone touch it, especially since it was now passed my bra strap. Well as you all know, it feels good to have someone wash and comb and play around in your hair. It's not the same doing it yourself, and I needed to relax after having a difficult pregnancy (in fear of having her prematurely due to my son being born at 26 weeks), and a even more difficult labor. I did a little research but I kind of knew that I would most likely to go to Mr. John's, a place known for supposedly growing womens hair long and healthy and supposedly specialized in healthy hair care. Well, I made my appointment, it took me weeks to get in because he was booked solid.
to be cont....
Ok, so where was I....oh yeah, my appointment was made and I eagerly arrive on time. My plan was just to go there as a consumer with no plans of letting on that I knew anything about haircare. When I came in they handed me a form to fill out and some questions, which I thought was a little strange. I don't remember everything on the form but I specifically remember them requesting to take pictures to be used in their portfolio. That was out of the question because I would not allow them to take credit for all of my hard work for growing my hair. After filling everything out I waited patiently for my consultation from "Mr. John" who was not actually the Mr. John who started the business years ago, he actually took over for his brother who had died from cancer. I only know this because one of their brothers Mr. Jackson lived across the street from my mother for years.
I had my consultation which wasn't very memorable, but I do remember him stating that I should not be air drying my hair. With what ever lame excuse he gave me I just nodded and said "ok".
Afterwards I was lead back to the waiting area where I awaited one of their assembly line beauticians to come and usher me to the back room. They had the philosophy that everyone in the salon was sufficient to handle all of the clients. They had several shampoo girls, blow dry girls, treatment girls, and styling girls and you would never have the same person to do every task (wash, blow or style) and you could not request a particular person to do your hair. So you would go the fist station and have your hair washed, then to the next for blow drying, so on and so forth.
Well, I never made that far. As I was lead into the shampoo room, I met the young lady would be shampooing my hair and I kept thinking to myself "I hope that I'm not making a big mistake. She proceeded to shampoo me and I all I could think about then was how good it felt to have someone else shampooing my hair and I just sat back and enjoyed every second throughly. After she shampooed my hair she toweled dried my and applied some type of treatment and placed me under some type of heating lamp and let me sit for about 15 - 20 mins. Afterward she led me back to the shampoo bowl and proceeded to rinse out the conditioner and this is were I could tell something was not right. She started combing my hair but it felt as if she was struggling so after a few mins I place my hands up in my head to feel my hair and I almost couldn't contain myself from the horror. My hair was all matted and tangled as I made my way through my hair with my hands all I could feel was one matted ball after another one. I screamed as loud as I could "what did you do to my hair?" A million thoughts went through my mind, one being, my hair care business was over. It would take me years to grow back the length that I had achieved.
I demanded to speak with the owner and they quickly ushered him in to evaluate the situation. He tried his best to calm me down and explained that he would at least like the opportunity to try and correct the problem. reluctantly I agreed and they proceed to spray something in my hair and went about trying to detangle my hair. After about 4 tugs on my hair, I had enough. I demanded a plastic cap to place on my head and left facility in tears. I mad my way home, went straight up stairs to my bathroom and took out my arsenal of S2S products. I applied my conditioner though out my entire head of hair and began the tedious job of unmatting and detangling my hair. It took me approximately 7-8 hours to work out all of matting and tangles. This is when I discovered just how well my conditioner detangled and that my moisturizer also doubled at a detangler. When it was all said and done I ended with about 4 hand full of hair that I lost. I had a lot of damage and lost a lot of volume but for the most part my length was still in tact. There was one spot in the back of my head that I could not get untangled and it stayed there weeks until I could work it out. There were 1 or 2 spots where I just gave up and cut the tangles out.
It was a hard lesson to learn but I thank the Lord because I didn't think I would have any hair left on my head.

> My story I am a junior in college and I have always taken pride in having healthy and stylish hair. However during sophomore year I began to get tired of having to spend hours every Saturday morning washing, drying, and flat ironing my hair; so I decided to "go natural". I felt like all the energy that I focused on my hair was preventing me from focusing on life. I went to a salon that my mom's friend highly recommended. The salon was beautiful, but I began to worry when I noticed how many clients were there, and the stylist still hadn't arrived. So he finally struts in wearing a mink coat all the way to the floor. I had spoken to him twice on the phone to tell him that I wanted my relaxed hair cut off (I hadn't had a perm in about two years, so I wasn't really worried). I had long hair and I wanted to donate it to locks of love. I came in with my hair natural so that he could see my hair texture and cut accordingly. He didn't pay any attention to what I was saying and he had forgotten everything we spoke about on the phone. But I said to myself how hard can it be to cut my hair off, especially for someone with this many clients. I spoke to him again about what I wanted, but he didn't really seem to be listening. After the wash he had his assistants wash my hair, both of them were really sweet. When it was finally time to cut my hair and I told him that I wanted it all cut off he stormed out of the room and came back looking high. He told me that he refused to cut off all of my hair. I don't know why he cared, it's my hair. He didn't take much length off of my hair but he really hacked it up unevenly and made it too short for me to donate. Then he had his assistant saturate my blow dried flat ironed hair with hair mousse and make two strand twists all the way to the back and put rollers on the ends. He put my under the drier for and hour and told me to come back in three days so that he can take the rollers out of my hair. He then charged me 90$ for this. Did he really expect me to walk around for three days with rollers in my hair? When I told him that I was not coming back to him ever. He told me to make sure I sent him back his rollers. I saw the rollers a few days later at the beauty supply store, they cost 50 cent for a whole pack. When I took the rollers out my hair was so dry and crispy that I started to cry. I noticed too that I had split ends, which is something that I have never had a problem with. This truly was a hair nightmare. About two months later I went to Fantastic Sams to a white hair stylist who gave me a great cut, and now I have the healthy natural that I want. Plus I get to sleep in Saturday morning. This site has really helped me learn more about my hair and the things that I need to do to keep it healthy. I can't wait to try the products. I looked for them at the Northland Lee Beauty Supply yesterday but I didn't find them.
