    I was reading Tia Williams' blog (Shake your Beauty) and I had known her sister had been growing out her r.elaxer for a while, well read what happened.

    Hi girls,
    Really quickly, I just discovered an amazing option for girls with fine-to-medium curls who'd love to relax their hair a bit, but don't want the heaviness and pin-straightness of a major chemical fire cream. Last week, I was at my local Dominican salon, Adelina's (love ya, Addie!). I'd had this weird kink in the front of my hair, towards the bottom--and no matter how much I flat ironed or curling iron-ed it, that piece never stayed straight. It drove me NUTS. So, I asked Adelina if there was anything I could do for that section, short of a chemical fire cream. Fabulous Addie was like, "Sure mami! Let's do a relaxing conditioner!" She proceeded to whip together equal parts deep conditioner and chemical fire cream (she used Paul Mitchell Super-Charged Moisturizer, $10.99; with SoftSheen-Carson Optimum Care Mild chemical fire cream, $6.99), and then massaged it into my weird, frizzy section of hair. After letting it marinate for ten minutes, it was business as usual--she washed it out once, followed with conditioner, and that was that! Brilliant. I mean, what a fabulous option if you just need super-mild relaxing (ideal for little girls, too).

    Here's the cautionary tale, though. My sister Devon (aka Brownie) had been growing out her perm for years, and was finally, FINALLY, done! A couple months ago, she went to her local D.C. Dominican spot and, without asking, her stylist slapped in a thickish pre-shampoo treatment. When Brownie saw her wet hair, she was baffled and devastated--her hard-won natural curls were looser, yet she knew her stylist hadn't given her a real chemical fire cream or weak chemical fire cream (she only washed it out once, and Brownie didn't smell chemicals). What happened?! It wasn't until I had my existential Adelina experience that we realized what the stylist had done. The NERVE, right? Good thing Brownie graduated summa *** laude from Howard Law School, because she's taking her *** to court. Moral of the story is, always watch your stylist...she might make an executive decision about your hair texture without asking.

    xoxo,
    Tia[/b]

    No, wait :shocker: that's better. I'm a mild-mannered person usually, but if someone did that, the :fan in their shop and the next thing I know I would be the one being taken to court. See, all these horror stories just confirm that I should never go to a salon w/o the most thorough of investigations.

    This makes me even more so not want to go to a salon. I remember when I was still damaging my hair with chemicals and/or p.resses and most of my stylists just did what they wanted when I asked them what I wanted done to my hair. I'm not going back, it's just me and my hair, baby.


    ETA: that straight up sounded like a nightmare, i actually had chills thinking about it. How horrible for her! :Angry:

    under the guise of a "pre shampoo treatment" honestly if someone was going to pre treat my hair for a shampoo i would probably say yes .......and would have been devasted if it turned out to be a undercover chemical fire cream :shocker: ..........


    I couldnt even imagine......

    -she probably couldnt even smell it under the conditioner.....i feel so bad for her...



    seriously that is really disturbing..it makes me NEVER want to go to a salon.....
