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.

I’m sure a high percentage of people who chose to click this article either are fixers, former fixers, or maybe they want to understand why fixers feel the need to make it their responsibility to change everyone. Well, for one, barely anyone who fits the bill knows why they do what they do until it exhausts them—like myself. I have been a fixer for as long as I can remember. I’ve always loved fighting for the underdog. Something about being needed for the betterment of people’s lives has always felt very fulfilling to me. That is until I’d invested so much in many close relationships that it backfired on me. And like many fixers, I would question how I could have offered so much, yet people treated me anyhow in the end?

When I first heard about Harlem, the new Amazon series about four Black girlfriends in the city, I admit, I wasn't a fan. There, I said it. I'm a child of the golden era of Girlfriends, Living Single, Friends, Moesha, Sex and the City, and The L Word. My friends and I were real-life offspring of these constructs who had a lot in common with the women of those shows. Even after enjoying a season of the similar new Showtime series Run the World, I'd had enough of stories about friends "navigating their way through" their 20s, or 30s, or 40s. I loved these shows, but thought to myself, "Why do we need a Harlem? Can't we tell other stories?"

As someone who has always considered themselves beautiful at any size, I can't say that I have always loved my body. Sure, there have been moments where I thought I was the sexiest thing walking. But for the most part, all I saw when I looked in the mirror were flaws. My thighs were always too big. Butt full of dimples from cellulite. Boobs always in the way. And my arms too jiggly.
