If “it’s just hair!” was a person, this young lady would be it! @chereka.l applied either a chemical relaxer or bleach to her hair and immediately experienced hair loss.
In the video shared on Instagram and viewed thousands of times, you will notice as she combs through the chemical, her hair is visibly coming out in the comb.
She does eventually wash the hair out, but she can pull the hair out with her hands because of how weak it is.
With that said, it was nothing but a split decision Chereka just shaves her head.

The truth is, Chereka probably did the right thing for her.
We have found that when your hair is completely damaged from a chemical relaxer or bleach, it is next to impossible to nurse it back to health especially if your hair is short.
If your hair is longer, you can try a hard protein treatment and follow up with other types of strengthening treatments, but you will have to slowly trim the hair as it grows out, to remove all of the damage.
In either case, you should see a stylist that you trust that will help you to make the best decision for your hair.
