All Of Tami Roman's Hair Fell Out After Botched Bleach Job & I Can Totally Relate

Going blonde doesn't have to lead to baldness so we've compiled a list of products that will get your hair retention game all the way together.


Me and my hair have had a pretty intense relationship. Either I'm in love with it or I cut it all off. There is no in-between. I'm a sucker for bleach blonde curls (I blame Beyonce) and my hair has paid a pretty high price for my obsession.

Although I've always been reckless with my tresses, my last trip to the salon damaged my hair in more ways than I can imagine. My non-ethic hair stylist seemed to give no fucks about my curl pattern and left me with a head full of platinum blonde, gummy, mess that couldn't be reversed. While I could sit here and criticize my stylist for getting distracted and leaving the solution on for too long, the truth is, I knew exactly what I was getting into when she started.

When it comes to my hair, I can unapologetically confess to being a cold-hearted killer (of my cuticles, that is) and Tami Roman can totally relate. On a recent episode of Personal Injury Court, a defendant sued her stylist for $480K after a botched weave installation that left her with a bald patch, and Tami came through with a hair-related horror story of her own:

"Ooooh chile, let me tell you. I've dyed my hair most of my life because I greyed early. So I went to my stylist and I said, 'I want you to take my hair to platinum blonde,' and he said, 'You know, it's going to be difficult.' I said, 'I still want it.'"

And with the flick of the wrist, Tami removed her wig and showed off her TWA that she was forced to embrace after all of her hair fell out. She continued:

"And six weeks later, all the hair fell out. I wanted what I wanted and now I'm bald."

Going blonde doesn't have to lead to baldness and proper hair health knowledge is essential to helping you retain length and elasticity, so we've compiled a list of products that will get your curl pattern all the way together:

Miss Jessie's Rapid Recovery Treatment 

Miss Jessie's

This avocado-infused hair treatment is meant to be used once a week and is perfect for dry, brittle curls that have lost their luster after a color treatment.


Maui Moisture Strength & Anti-Breakage + Agave Nectar Conditioner 


I stumbled upon this gem at a local Walgreens, and although I only picked it up because it was on sale, this sweet-smelling conditioner has quickly become a part of my bi-weekly wash routine. For maximum results, combine with Maui Moisture Thicken & Restore + Bamboo Fiber Fortifying Mask Fortifying Mask.


Buritti Nectar Repair Hair Oil 


I discovered this accidental find in Sally's Beauty and although it was a little pricey for a hair oil (in my opinion), it was well-worth the money. It smells lovely and does a pretty good job at hydrating my normally low-porosity hair.


Design Essentials Natural Honey & Shea Edge Tamer Hair Gel 


Just because you're going through a dry patch (literally) with your tresses, doesn't mean you should neglect your edges. Next to Aunt Jackie's Tame My Edges Smoothing Gel, this is the only edge control I trust to hold my edges all the way down.


Curls Blueberry Bliss Reparative Leave In Conditioner


This cult-favorite features a mix of blueberry extract, coconut oil, grapeseed oil, and mango butter that promises to repair and condition and prevent breakage of your chemically damaged coils.

You know what? Sometimes, you've got to push a few coins aside and determine in your mind that you're going to invest into your sex life (if you had a sex jar, this would be easier to do, by the way. You can read more about what that is all about here). If you're someone who is totally down to do that, but you don't have a clue where to begin, boy have you come to the right place! Between the joy of being a writer who sometimes gets samples sent to me, the constant research that I do for the couples I work with and having folks shout-out certain items semi-often, I've compiled a list of 12 sex-related items that may seem random AF (a pun is kind of intended there) and, at the same time, can make sex so much better between you and your partner. Where's your pad at? You're definitely gonna wanna take note.

Recently, I was talking to a friend of mine about someone who once told me that they had an annual week-long summer rendezvous that lasted for over 15 years with someone else. Yep — this individual would meet up with another person who lived in a different state, solely to have sex for a week straight, and then return to their city as if nothing ever happened. According to them, the only reason why this ritual romp eventually came to an end is because the other person decided to get serious about someone else; however, it wasn't until it ended that the person who told me the story realized how attached they actually had become to their sex partner (a cautionary tale). After I completed my lil' tale, my friend simply said, "Oh, I do that s — t every cuffing season. There are some people who I only talk to around this time of year, we f — k around and then that's that until the season comes around again."
