First off I want to say... I am devastated šŸ˜­šŸ˜­!

3 weeks ago I went to the salon for my semi annual blow out! I have been going to this salon (Mena's-- an Egyptian ran establishment) for OVER 10 YEARS! They've always been good to me!!! But I guess they're 10 year streak has come to an end!

After 3 weeks of straight hair I was ready for my curls back! I wet my hair in the shower and I began to smell PERM!!! I had no idea where it was coming from... maybe I was smelling bathroom cleaner.. idk! I just continued to wash and deep condition my hair! After all that the smell remained and my curls seemed to be looser and my hair felt different than usual! Still I wasn't convinced... I just knew they could not have put a perm in my hair.

My husband hugged me and said "did you perm your hair?" At that point I almost flatlined!! (Dramatic i know)

Unfortunately, I believe I have been deceived and my natural hair journey has been thrown out the window!

I guess at this point I need to know how to care for my hair in this new stupid state!

Protein treatment? What?

Please help!!

    I'm sorry about what happened to you. That sounds absolutely horrifying and I would feel so violated knowing I was taken advantage of by people who you trusted for over a decade. I hope you left a review detailing what they have done. People need to see what they are doing to their customers.

    I haven't experienced the same thing so I can't offer much in the advice department, (I mostly wanted to offer my condolences) but I am certain that after a treatment like that you will need a protein treatment.

    Again, I am so sorry and I hope that you get the help that you need.
    3B with a little 3C mixed in. My hair's porosity is on the low, low. Fine, medium density. Finally reached shoulder length!

    You can file a suit with their insurance.Ā  I won $3000 when an ethiopian woman relaxed my hair and didn't know what she was doing.Ā  Call and get their insurance information and file a claim. Good luck.
