Do you have pictures? Sometimes when I go drastic, I don’t like it at first because it’s not what I’m used to.

 “I usually go get $14 haircuts from this little Vietnamese lady.”

What’s the point? How does this detail have anything to do with your hair dilemma.

janvier :  I think it was just to show the contrast in the amount of money she usually spends on her hair.

I’m sorry this happened to you Bee! I’ve had my hair severely damaged when trying a new stylist and it SUCKS!!! I had to cut off the damage too, so I feel your pain 100%. Luckily it’s hair and it’ll grow back.

I would definitely mention it to your stylist and try to get some of your money back. There is no reason why you should have to shell out another $250 on hair that THEY ruined.

Good Luck!

It sounds like she over processed your hair. What was the history of your natural hair before this? Had you had a perm or any bleaching done prior to this? 

I would for sure go in and bring this up with the stylist. If your hair is fried then unfortunately there isn’t much to do other than cut it off and start fresh but leaving color in the extensions and ruining them is unacceptable in addition to the fact she also may have ruined your hair. Is there another stylist at this salon? Is the owner the person who did this? If not, does the owner have a cosmetology background? I ask because if so I would bring it up with them.

janvier :  it clearly demonstrates how much of a big deal it is to her to spend $500 when she usually spends $14

With your wedding being about 6 months away there is still time to repair your hair quite a bit. I think I would be most upset about the extensions, that is a lot of money to spend on something that they ruined. I have never seen a stylist give extensions back in that condition, not to mention every pair of extensions I’ve made for my friends are washed, dried, and styled like normal hair. There is no reason they should be dry and frizzy after one wash. Do you have a picture of the extensions?

It’s kind of hard to tell if they’re damaged or not. If you really think they are then you could get one of those wet hair detangling brushes then brush them, wet the hair, and then put a moisturizing hair mask in it. Once that is done, run the detangling brush through it again and let them dry. I always hang them up to dry. Once you do that you can recurl them. You can basically treat them like real hair, but after that I wouldn’t suggest washing them anymore until your wedding unless you plan on wearing them a lot.

Either way, I would still suggest asking the hairstylist about it. I would let her know that they had a strong chemical smell so you washed them and need them restyled. You’ve already spent quite a lot of money so I don’t think it is wrong to question what has happened.

No problem 🙂 I have really thick corse hair that doesn’t like to be colored so I’ve been through my fair share of hair messups.

I wouldn’t worry about them looking ratty, most extensions kind of look ratty before they’re styled lol

I would just call her and let her know you have some questions about the extensions, I wouldn’t think she would take it offensively especially if you haven’t had extensions before.

As far as your real hair, what worked for me the most to repair my hair after I accidentally fried it was this at home mask along with not really using heating tools for a few months.

1 EGG
Coconut Oil
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
100% PURE Argan Oil

You mix it all together and put it in your hair for 45 minutes and then rinse it. I did it about twice a week.

Hope it all gets sorted out! 🙂
