You Aren't Alone... If You've Ever Had A Bad Hair Experience

You Aren't Alone... If You've Ever Had A Bad Hair Experience
By Gloria Faye Brown Bates/aka Granny Gee

If you've had a bad hair experience, you aren't alone.  I'm here, I've had a really bad hair experience.

Everyday, I'm having to cope with it in my mirror.  I cope with it when I see people looking at my hair, wondering 'what happened to my hair!'  I can't explain to so many people...

My hair makes me cry now.  I have one more thing to make me cry.  It's almost comical.  Now... I cry over my hair...  look at my photos, wouldn't you cry, also?

I can't fix it, I can only wash, let it dry naturally so, as not to damage it any farther.  I began using Nexxus shampoo, conditioner.  It's very expensive.  I was told it would help my hair until it grows out... grows out!

I can't believe I have to 'let it grow out'... I have waited so long to get it the length it is... to reach the scar I told you about.  The scar of the first surgery I had when diagnosed with non-Hodgkins lymphoma. (cancer).

Now... I don't know what else to do.  I wonder if anyone knows how I would care for my hair now.  No one has bothered to answer my calls, to at least tell me how to care for my hair.

After this email with photos of my hair... if I don't get an answer, I am going a step farther.  I feel I should get my money back, and get my hair taken care of.  Time will tell.  I will keep you updated.

I have never heard of anyone 'spraying a perm solution' on someone's hair like mine was done... not once, but... 3 times... each time being placed under the dryer again.  The chemicals are harsh, and combined with heat... you can see by the photos what happened.

You aren't alone if you have had a bad perm.  I'd be so interested in knowing how someone coped with their hair, cared for it.


  1. I get it, I would of shaved my head. Why, because it would of been better then seeing it falling out and being frail but that is me of course. I am sorry you have been sick.

    1. Thank you for your reply. It is definitely something to think about.

  3. I am so sorry you are having such a bad experience with your hair. I would think putting a really good conditioner on it would help. That is the only thing I know to do. I think you should get your money back too! If you confront them with that, they will offer another perm but I don't think you should do that--not with those people anyway. Insist on getting your money back! Good luck! Love, Ms. Nancy
