Yes, you read right, my 2nd setback!
I did not want to flat iron my hair until I got my next
touch-up so I went to a salon to get my hair roller set and everything that can go wrong went wrong.
First, the young lady who was
shampooing my hair had acrylic nails that needed to be filled so my hair kept
getting caught in her nails, after it happened the second time I asked for
someone else to shampoo my hair. I guess the new girl was not pleased that she
had to get up to shampoo and condition my hair because she was very rough; I
constantly had to tell her she was hurting my scalp.
When that ordeal was over
and it was time to get my roller set done, detangling was a nightmare. First, I
had to tell her which comb to use since she immediately reached for a fine-tooth
comb, then she wanted to detangle from the roots. I instantly stopped her and
directed her to detangle from the ends go up, something I had to repeat with
each section, I started wondering if I was speaking a language she couldn’t
comprehend. I lost a lot of hair by the time she had finished roller setting my
hair and the roller set looked like crap, by this time I was pissed and fed up
and just wanted to get everything over with.
I sat under the dryer and hoped
for the best but in my heart I knew the roller set was a lost cause, I knew I would
have to do the one thing I did not want to do in the first place, flat iron my
hair. When the rollers were taken out my hair looked like I air dried it rather
than roller set it. When she was about to flat iron my hair I made sure the
temperature was not more than 300 and I insisted she did no more than two
passes. It was just my luck that by the time she finished flat ironing my hair
the rain was falling.
I had to deal with all that drama and still wasn’t able
to enjoy my hair. When I got home I took off a little more than an inch because
my hair looked and felt so thin. I need to take off some more but I hope to
clip little by little until my ends look nice and full again. I do not want to
cut four or five inches all at once so when I do my next touch-up I will see
how my ends look and proceed from there, hopefully I will be able to take off no
more than an inch or two at most at a time.
I am washing my hands of hairdressers;
even after my first setback I was hoping to find someone I can occasionally go
to but two setbacks two years in a row is a sign from above!
