This was probably why I reacted so badly when that white woman committed attempted murder on my beautiful long hair. Disapprove

But I got my weave done in Ghana and ooooooh, I love my country. THEY KNOW HOW TO HANDLE HAIR! Clap Great hair care and weave for only 40 cedis!


Ghana, my love!

Some WILL NOT listen to you. They're too stuck in their ways or too prideful and "know what they're doing" so they turn a damn styling session into medieval hair torture. -.-

I went to this salon last year and was pretty nervous since it was my first time since going natural. It was a black salon.. SUPPOSEDLY.

The woman who was going to do my hair was this white woman. A white woman has never styled my hair before so I was damn nervous but decided to be open-minded. Sleepy

That woman *&%^$#@Eed up my hair so bad with the blowdryer, bitch made it rain clumps of my own hair and I sat there like a fool trying to get my money's worth. -__- She couldn't even exhibit BASIC hair care practice correctly. Even worse, when she began cornrowing my hair, I told her multiple times, "not too tight/please loosen up" and this heifer would just smack her gum and say "yeah" with NO CHANGE in how she was braiding.

When I was done, I was in so much pain, I was in my car crying. I have NEVER had that happen before. Not even as a kid did I cry after the hair was done! That white woman mistreated my hair and scalp so bad, I undid the cornrows an hour later and found I had a couple of cuts on my scalp after finding crusted blood.

Some stylists simply do not give a damn. I gave that place a bad review on yelp and google. They tried to dismiss everything, smh.

see this is what i dont understand.  your hair fallen like the towers and strands jumpin ship like the titanic and you stayed.  not being a member of bhm...i aint tryna hear it.  hair just would not have gotten done that day. if you cant love your hair can you at least love you folliclesLOL

Every time you comment to things like this it makes me laugh. 

But yeah this one woman did my sewn in one time and I got a bald spot because it was sooo tight. I haven't gone to her in years.

Meh, I think she was just tender-headed.  Why did the weave look so thin?

My mom once got her hair braided far too tight, she was in pain with headaches for day. She swiftly jumped into the shower, and soaked her head to loosen the braids. 

I'm scared to go to a stylist for these type of reasons. I've been spoiled by having my mom do my hair all these years. 

I need to learn to do it myself, pronto.

I absolutely cannot take any tight braids nor when they sew the wefts in. I have super thick hair and I'm natural. I am very careful to tell whoever is braiding my hair several times....may even a 100 times DO NOT BRAID MY HAIR TIGHT. I would rather come back in 8 weeks or tighten it myself before I get a super tight sew in. I've taking a sew in down in 3 days because it was too tight. I'm concerned about traction alopecia and my hair falling out. I have to leave my perimeter out because if I don't, i get bumps.

I REALLY don't understand why folks seem to think scalp-pulling tight braids mean that's the only way the braid will stay secure.  My stylists doesn't braid tight at all and her braids last for 3 months.

No matter how hard I used to tell some stylists it hurts, they would barely loosen up on the braiding and the sewing in part makes it even more tighter.
Ladies be careful for real. Someone did my weave so tight that I had bumps the entire install and once I took it down I had bald patches all throughout my hair from being pulled out.
