What Would YOU Do?

23 01 2011

My daughter and I were talking Friday night and she was telling me about a girl in her school who lost a lot of her hair to a perm.  It must have been really bad because she said she was starting to understand why I was so hardcore about hair.  While I was glad that she is starting to understand, I felt and still do feel so bad for this little girl.  To be 12/13 and have lost your hair to a relaxer must be a crushing blow to your self esteem.   I would also imagine that her mom would be devastated as well!  I would be if it were my daughter.   I’m on here again today to ask you what you would do.  I am going to have my daughter to ask the girl to ask her mom if I can provide them with some resources to improve the health of her hair as it grows back out.  If she (Mom) says yes, then I have a short list of things to suggest to her such as certain products, youtubes, hair forums and such.  If she says no, then I’ll mind my own business and keep it moving.  What would you suggest to help someone grow their hair back after a chemical burn?  Any advice and suggestions would be greatly appreciated.


UPDATE:  My daughter talked to the girl and the girl wasn’t interested.  Maybe one day, she’ll change her mind.  Maybe not.  Either way, it’s time for me to mind my own business now.  Thanks to all who shared opinions and advice!

I know how that woman feels. I had a friend put a perm in and my hair was coming out in clumps. I was in tears. I am not the crying type. Now I decided to go natural. When my hair was falling out in my hands and I felt like a cancer patient. I still wasn’t willing to go natural. I thought I should just let a professional do my perms and not a friend. So I still got several touch ups. then I started to think my hair has fallen out with professional. I finally got to the realization no more chemicals for me. I still flat iron my hair which after a lot of practice it looks better then the perm. Since I am not willing to do the big chop it just works better with two textures of hair. Six months on this journey and I am still working it out. It took me a long time to get on this page.

I just hope that she doesn’t grow up having “issues” with her hair. It’s just so sad that this had to happen to her. Who knows how this will turn out, but I am glad that there are resources out there now instead of like when I was growing up.

Poor girl! I hope it doesn’t take too long for her hair to get back to normal. Alas, I’m not a hair specialist! 🙂 If it was something to do with computers, I might have a suggestion or too.
