The Worst Haircut Ever, or Why I May Turn Into a She Wolf
A few monts ago I got the WORST haircut…and I wasn’t even trying to get my hair cut. I couldn’t see my friend who ever-so-lightly trims my ends every 8-10 weeks (it’s been the best thing for my hair!) so I made the horrible, life-altering (ok, maybe not life-altering) mistake of seeing someone else to trim my ends. Instead of dusting my ends, this crazy girl (who I sooo want to put on blast…) thinned out the entire right side of my head. A year and a half of going natural and in less than 30 minutes she’d butchered away my thick, full hair into wispiness. I should have known she wasn’t right when she tried to wet my hair to cut it, especially since I told her twice that I didn’t have a relaxer. Riiight.
She was so annoying and I was in such a rush to get away from her, I didn’t notice until I got home and caught a glimpse of myself in a mirror. First, I was mortified. Then I was ticked! Sadly, no matter how upset I was, the hair she cut wasn’t coming back and it wasn’t going to thicken back up overnight. While I was in NYC for Fashion Week a great stylist not only styled my hair to perfection (and disguised the un-eveness), but she felt my pain! She gave me two pieces of advice: 1) Go back to the girl who wrecked my hair and tell her she was (and I quote!) stupid and deserved to have her license taken, and 2.) Keep up my home treatments and begin taking biotin supplements.
While I ignored her first piece of advice (LOL), I did decide to try biotin supplements again. I confessed to her that I’ve tried biotin supplements over the years, but always gave up on them before I could see results. She shared that she always recommends that clients take a high dosage of biotin so they’ll see results faster. So, I recently picked up this bottle of Natrol Biotin 10,000mcg, as 10,000 was the highest dosage I could find anywhere. Either my hair (and nails!) will grow thick and strong, or I’ll grow hair in places I shouldn’t, lol! I’ll start taking it this week, in addition to being vigilant about my reconstructing and deep conditioning treatments. Hopefully the results will be positive, so I’ll report back soon! Wish me luck!
