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!
