Here's what happened.

When a natural-haired woman from Marietta, Georgia made her appointment at Lucy’s Dominican Hair Salon, she assumed that the "blow out" hairstyle that she’d asked for would consist of a simple shampooing, conditioning, and of course, blow drying. When she first left the salon she was happy, but 3 days later, she noticed something weird when she washed her hair so that she could put into twists.

But for some strange reason, her luscious hair refused to curl as it ALWAYS DID and she noticed that large sections of her hair appeared to be unusually straight. When she called the hair salon to ask what IN THE WORLD they had done to her hair, they told her that they'd put chemical perm relaxer in her shampoo without her knowing about it!

As anyone with naturally curly, kinky hair black woman will tell to you, using any amount of chemical relaxer isn’t something that you do casually as if trying a new hair spritz or something. The active ingredients in most relaxers are alkaline chemicals like lye or ammonium sulfate that have a pH somewhere between 10 and 14. The hair damaging properties of these substances break down hair’s protein structure. Cases in which relaxer is left in for too long can result in severely damaged hair and burning of the scalp.

According to the woman, a representative from the salon informed her that it was standard procedure to mix a small amount of relaxer into the shampoo used for people with natural hair and that it wasn’t cause for concern. Lisbeth Dominican Hair Salon, which the woman also called out in the original post, made a point of posting to Facebook that they did not make a practice of mixing relaxer in with shampoo.

After the woman posted photos of her now processed hair as a warning to women with natural hair who might patronize the salon, the natural hair community quickly came to the consensus that the woman would be well justified if she decided to sue the salon.

“This is one of the NO-GO’s for my naturalistas,” Yelp user Tosha W. wrote in a critical review of the salon prompted by the screenshot. “Mixing a perm in with the shampoo without consent is just as tacky as a hair salon can get.”

And we'd have to agree, for any salon to slip a major hair killer into a clients shampoo without getting permission is almost a low-level crime in my opinion. How is that any different that punching a hole in someone's tire on purpose?

Ridiculous!

How would you have handled this situation OMGers? Would you have sued?

Natural Hair Workshop Reaches Australia!

Please click the Facebook SHARE BUTTON on the upper-left to share BlackHairOMG with friends, it helps us keep writing free info!

Without a doubt, the natural hair movement is still going strong and spreading all over the world.

On Saturday May 14, 2016, naturalista and boutique owner Allison Owens held the first natural hair workshop in Adelaide South Australia.

While natural hair workshops and meetups have become commonplace in America, such events are unheard of in Australia.

The workshop, “No More Dry Hair: the LOC & LCO Methods” was held at Sassy Kinks & Coils Boutique, the first natural hair store in South Australia.

Surrounded by American made natural hair products such as Sheamoisture, Jessicurl, Cantu and Tgin, Allison discussed the steps of the LOC & LCO methods and demonstrated how to apply the techniques.

Allison intends to host a natural hair workshop/meetup the second Saturday of each month as a means of supporting women on their natural hair journey.

If Natural Hair Was a Cult... Is This Funny?

OK, so we're definitely living in the era of satin hair wraps, coconut oil & #BlackGirlMagic

And I ain't mad at it. Not one teeny weeny bit!  🙂

hair cult

The natural hair movement is so strong that The Curl Club decided to poke a little fun (in a light-hearted way) and imagine if the natural hair movement were a cult. They used a lot of imagination and creativity to think up this off-the-wall scenario.

It is hilarious!

The video is going SUPER VIRAL and is causing a lot of interesting conversation between large groups of naturals and even non-naturals as well.

[Follow BlackHairOMG's Instagram we got the hair pics FOR DAYS!]

We've even seen friends jokingly tagging each other on Facebook saying stuff like "This is soooo you!!"

And of course, there are some people taking the video waaaaaay too seriously and are even offended, I don't exactly understand what there is too get upset about, but hey, some people will find a reason to complain no matter what you do.

But for all y'all that just enjoy a good laugh this will be right up your alley.

Anyway, check it out and enjoy the humor. The end of this video cracked me up, home girl had no idea what she was walking into.

Enjoy! And please leave your thoughts and comments below... Did it make you laugh too?

How to Wear the Puff Cuff on Thick or Fine Natural Hair

 

How many hair clamps has your curly hair broken? Well, no more! Finally, there’s a hair clamp that can handle the challenge of thick, textured hair. Meet the Puff Cuff, a “remix” of the banana clip, uniquely designed to hold and style even the thickest of thick hair!

The Puff Cuff’s unique teeth are designed to lock into the texture or curl of your hair and hold the clamp in place, NOT to glide through the hair like a comb or banana clip. While the concept may be similar to the old "banana clip,” the Puff Cuff functions differently by working with your hair instead of against it.
