Bought a box of Curl Free. Actually, many many boxes. Sigh...
EVERY time I get frustrated with my hair, ie; it won't style right, or it doesn't grow fast enough, I cut it. Yea, that's a horrible thing to do every time because it won't help the growth, but I can't help it. Then a month later I regret cutting it...

Thank you everyone for sharing! I've found your stories touching and many made me giggle as well.

I was always very conservative about my hair so I never did anything dramatic to it. I would just look in the mirror at my frizzy triangle and think well..... that's just how my hair was. It was terrible for whatever reason, but looks were never my forte so terrible hair was just another checkmark in "falling off the ugly tree and hitting every branch on the way down." My frizzball hair was just another branch LOL!!!! Lucky me!

When I was 14, I cut down my waist long hair to chin length by myself. I haven't managed to get this length back since.
One year later I relaxed it. It took two years to grow out the relaxer.
LOL...I used to iron my hair with an actual iron in high school. I wanted that stick straight, flat hair that was so popular in the early 2000's. Remember Jennifer Aniston? I know, I practically killed it. My brother said he could smell it burning.
I actually shaved my head bald several times as a teenager. sometimes I'd go bald to school, sometimes I'd wear my straight black wig.

yah I was an oddball. lol

I decided to cut my 3c curls into layers. 'Nuff said.
I used to brush oh my hair every morning and one say I got so frustrated that I pulled a chunk of hair put with the brush and my head started bleeding.

That same year I got so mad I decided to cut off 10 inches of hair, which made me look like a little boy. It took more than three years to grow back.

Later I had my hair in a big ponytail and was tired of it being so uneven, so I took a pair of scissors and tried to make my hair better, but after that it just looked like a got a haircut from a blind person.
When I was 13 I had mid back length 4a/b hair and that was without stretching. It was thick and hard to manage. My mother had 3b hair and she was clueless about my hair and how to handle so it was a mess 99% of the time. One day i tried to comb it myself - WORST IDEA EVER! The comb got tangled in my hair and the more I tried to free it the more tangled it got. I got so frustrated, I cut it out. It was about a 4x4 inch patch of hair. Had to cut to shoulder length to try and make it unnoticeable. Then a week later i relaxed it.

Guess that's two of the craziest things I've done lol

I recently was talking with a friend who has curly hair and we had this discussion.

When I was 11 years old I hated my hair. My mom was always making me brush it out (can you say fuzzball?) and I hated my smaller diameter curls and wanted the larger looser curls that I felt we're pretty. So, I got it into my head that if I could get a perm with larger rollers, my hair would curl differently. Needless to say, my mom and hair stylist looked at each other and tried their best to convince me not to do it, but stubborn as I was I could not be convinced. I got the perm and no kidding....Rosanne Rosannadana

Want to reach terminal length !
There are these shorter pieces underneath the rest of my hair, right in the very back, that could never fit into my braids or twists. They'd always stick out since they were too short to fit in with the rest of what I was doing. I had been so frustrated with my hair in general and having to go through the process of spritz/co-wash, detangle, style every day and the fact that no matter what I did my twist-outs never looked right that I took a pair of scissors and cut off those short pieces. I'm SO glad they're underneath the rest of my hair, because I'd probably have started crying right then and there if they weren't.

I then texted my mom, who works in a predominantly African American area (I'm half-black myself) to see if anyone she knew, knew anyone who could give me some braided style that I could leave in for a few weeks. She said she'd ask, but I never did that and now, a few months later, I'm over my hair frustration. The shorter stuff hasn't taken long to start growing back, which is great, because I was worried about how noticeable it would be whenever I put my hair up in a bun. Since I work in a library, and my primary jobs are shelving and checking in books, I like to keep my hair up out of my face.

It's starting to look like baby hair again, so I started pinning my bangs back and throwing a bit of makeup over what's most annoying.
Cut about 4 inches off
Color it medium brown in the back with honey blond highlights at the top

Right now I'm in process of getting a my hair cornrowed up into a ponytail thats it gonna touch the top of my butt with blond bangs in the front

I cut my 3b/3c hair into a really short inverted bob back in April. Worst decision ever. If you're ever thinking about getting an inverted bob, DONT DO IT. Growing it out is hell.
When I was in high school I wanted an "afro" however my hair wouldn't get "bushy" like my friends, just curly. Someone told me if I put vinegar in my hair it would get bushy so I did. It turned my hair red and made it brittle...it stood out for a moment but as soon as the wind blew it went flat at the top.

Horrible!!!
My hair is "exotic, beautiful and free",,,yeah, that be ME!!!

A 2C, hopefully something more as my hair gets redefined. Lots of chemical/heat damage to get rid of! Currently at shoulder length, aiming for mid-back.

(Any HtBlack you find anywhere on the internet is most likely always moi! :3)
