Hmm, I wonder why salicylic acid is in it. Isn't that the stuff that's used in acne products?

I would be considering litigation, too. She lost CRAZY AMOUNTS of hair! I hope it's not permanent. :(

oo snap! poor girl, i'd be mad as heyll... but i always thought dr. miracle was shady anyways. 
I always check the ingredients and the forum for products i feel like using.
It just goes to show that we gotta do our research. 
It sucks your sister had to be yet another example.

I saw only the first part of the video and I also commented. Dr. Miracles is pure crap and I know this b/c before going natural again, I used the relaxer. Mind you, I was still newly relaxed and it caused my hair fall out like crazy but I was in denial until my mom made a comment about how thin my have got. I tell mybfirends do not use this shyt if they want to keep their hair and I suprised that dr. miracles is this out in the market.

Poor girl! Cry  I can't believe these products are still being sold when they're causing so much damage! It's not like she misused a relaxer and ended up with that kind of damage! This was supposed to be some kind of healing oil? Are you kidding me? It breaks my heart to see things like this happen. Please take legal action! I think we tend to brush these kinds of things off instead of trying to change the problem and raise awareness, and that's why Dr. Miracles is still on the market.

This is so sad.
I pray her hair grows back quickly, and I agree she needs to sue.

WOW!! I am so sorry for your sister. First she needs to document her use of the product and take several pictures of the hair damage and then I would write a detailed letter to the corporate office of Dr. Miracles, if you get no response or compensation then threaten legal action and seek an attorney.
