the hair dresser totally messed up my hair

I just read the review you left. I think that's good. It bluntly gets the point across that she has no skills or professionalism without you sinking to her level.
3a/3b thick coarse WL dark brown hair. CG/Mod CG since: 5/4/05. Current products: Right now my hair is in such a tizzy over this winter weather we are hving that nothing really seems to be working. I need a haircut.

Iím so sorry for you!, Try to keep on mind that your hair will grow back and it is going to be even more beautiful than before. See what happened to me. Last night I went to my new hairdresser, and she chopped my hair so bad, that it looks like she was mad at me when she cut it. I got home last night at 7p, I washed my hair and tried to styled as better as I could. After that, I went to bed to cry! I felt ugly and stupid. Nevertheless, my husband came to my rescue and explained to me that my hair is just an extension of my beauty-NOT ALL MY BEAUTY, and even though that made me cry even more, I felt better afterwards. It is true; we are beautiful even when some bad hairdresser do these things to us. I just called my former hairdresser and explained what happened. She advised me to wait two weeks and then go see her for a relaxer, that at least is going to help me handle my hair while is this Short! I know this may not make you feel better, but I want you to know that I can relate. Does anybody know a good treatment I can use until I go to my former hairdresser? Is hot oil ok? Moreover, what brand do you recommend?

Hot oil is an iffy treatment. Many curlies find that it just makes their hair super greasy and they have to use harsh shampoos to get it out. Of course, there are some people who do fine with hot oil.

I'd rather recommend a protein treatment like Joico KPak (always followed by a moisturizing conditioner) if your hair is damaged. Use heat if you can. If your hair is just dry, a rich moisturizing conditioner with heat can work nicely.
Hi Eden -

You really are very lovely and this bad haircut will eventually pass...but in the meantime, if you shampoo at all, can I recommend the sulfate-free Back to Basics Blue Lavender Color protecting shampoo and conditioner?

I read somewhere (maybe on this forum, maybe on MakeupAlley) that an ingredient in this stuff really makes your hair grow fast - which I promptly dismissed, because I was purchasing it only because of its sulfate-free properties.

I have been using this shampoo every 2 washings (because I am a wavy) since before Christmas and I just noticed yesterday that I can really see a difference in growth. Not something I expected at all since I initially thought the claim was a bit strange.

If you are interested, I can mail you a decent sample. Take care!

that is so nice of you , thank you ,,



i did get my weave done yesterday ,
it made me feel better ,
but its not the same like having your own hair ,
but i don't want to be unthankful , the lady that did put my hair in did a very good job and took her time to make it to really blend in with my hair ..

i was thinking that in a few weeks when the weave gets looser that i will sew it on some clips , because i can not afford to go and have it done like every 2 month ,

It is better than when I left the salon last Thursday that is for sure! My friend told that the hairstyle looks good with my face shape (Oval), but I dislike this haircut so much. I have faith that once I get it relax it will look better.

-My hair is very dry (always been), and I had some highlights made it worse.
Thank you for taking the time to answer my post.
I would still file a complaint with your local Better Business Bureau and tell them you want your money back. Unfortunately, your state cosmetology board can do little to help you unless she is violating some state laws. Usually, they won't do much in response to a complaint unless someone files one about sanitation, then they'll send an inspector out for a surprise inspection (at least in Florida).

Okay - does anyone else find this a bit funny? eden writes a bad review for citysearch on 1/16. Mary responds back publicly on 1/21 with a "please call because I value all my clients" - probably just to make herself look good. And now, all of a sudden, she has 12 more reviews just from 1/21 to 1/23 - in two freaking days - saying how fabulous she is after never having a review before eden's??? Ba-LONEY. Guess she got all her family and friends to write great reviews so she wouldn't look bad, huh?

I wonder if Citysearch can be contacted about possible bogus reviews. I saw something on TV about hotel owners sending in positive reviews thru Trip Advisor for their own places and neg reviews for competitors. Trip Adviser now posts a disclaimer on these hotels who were known to give fake reviews. It may be hard to prove for the salon, though.

Maybe I'll post something on there about the lack of reviews until the negative one showed up. I also noticed there was only one review and then bam- a whole bunch. Mary probably called all her clients asking them to post or like someone else said, had her family post goor things.
