Blow dryers and bald spots!

Posted on November 2, 2011 at 1:00pm 8 Comments

I don't no how it took me so long to notice this... but today after the usual shower instead of air drying my hair i decided to blow dry and straighten it... totally forgetting about the 3-4in bald patch at the back of my head i had the blow dryer on high (since the rest of my hair is thick )so the hot air attempting to dry my hair eventually got to my bald patch and burnt like you wouldn't believe, all in all my mom laughed at me, haha, anyone else ever have this happen ??
