The WORST Thing Ever!


So, about a year ago, my parents moved from their old house to their new one and my mom found some old pics of me and my sisters that she turned over to us. I’m about to reveal to y’all what was probably the worst hair of my life. The year was 1988. After having had a relaxer for about 3 years, I decided I wanted to wear my hair wavy as I could never get/keep it straight anyway. I wasn’t feeling the Jheri Curl, but the Wave Nouveau had just been introduced! YES! That’s the look I wanted! I dreamed of looking like this!!

Instead, I looked like this.

(I’ve come a loooooong way baby!!)

LMBO!! Told you. See a salon stylist, a so-called “professional,” thought  it was fine to apply this curly chemical process over a relaxer. And … my hair proceeded to break horribly. Eventually, in my senior year of HS, I got my first totally short haircut ever to eliminate the remnants of the damage.

That was my worst hair year ever and was probably the worst thing that I ever did to my hair. So, the question of the day is:

What is the worst thing that you’ve ever done to your hair?
