My mom has been getting relaxers and such for more than 30 years.
From what I have witnessed I have seen her go to about 4 or 5 stylists,
The first lady was alright she relaxed her hair, had her hair a blondish or always light brown color,
she used old tools though but that was before the flat iron was out
We started going to one lady who moved to a billion different shops and my mom always follow, this has been my moms favorite stylist..
I however stopped going to her once I went natural (best decision of my life ever)
Long story short ol girl dips out so my mom has to find a new person, some guy that worked at one of the shops ol girl was in...
He's been doing her hair alright but he does not do weaves, only her hair so he's relaxed it a couple of times, and colored it,
In her opinion for the past years the people have not color her hair "right" because it comes out to dark...
In addition to the color and relaxers her hair is not veryyyy broken off in the front and she doesn't know or understand why.
She has worn some synthetic wigs as well sometimes with out a wig cap...
Anywho she wanted me to color her hair yet again since she went to some guy at the nail shop who colored her hair good once but then this last time it was too dark
so she had ol girl who came back take her to Armstrongs to purchase her professional hair color which she wanted me to put in...
I let her know the color will most likely not lighten her hair since she JUST got that dark color on her hair , but she wanted me to do it anyways..
Anywho its just sad to see my moms hair breaking off due to all of this manipulation and crap and she keeps wanting more.
Also ol girl put tracks braided across in her hair and everytime I take them out their all matted causing me to have to break some hair while trying to remove it. smh
