I had a hair emergency today............I decided to straighten my grown out perm. I have done it before, no problem. Well today was a different story, no I don't have a before pic, lets just say straw has a better feel than my hair did when I was done. The ends curled up and fell off just like hair being burnt. I couldn't get a comb thru it without it breaking. The more it dried the frizzier it got, it was so bad I just got in the car and went to Norfolk. Walked in to the mall and told the gal at Regis to cut it off. I really made her work hard and over an hour and a half later this is what was left. She tried to leave it as long as she could, there was no hope and I made her cut another inch and a half off the front and two off the back. (I've never had my neck shaved before)Sooooooooooo long story short; never trust a box that says gentle and safe for all hair types! Josh told me I look just like all the other moms now....oh great....hey what kind of earrings do ya wear with short hair?
