Just two weeks after releasing her rap single “Ma Hair,” on her trending hair product mix-up, Tessica Brown returned to the internet to lament that her hair is starting to fall out.
The woman who went viral during Black History Month after using Gorilla Glue in her hair—and kept us enthralled for months as she had it surgically removed, then enjoyed some hard-won new growth, and even released her own haircare line—is reportedly determined to continue spinning her hair-raising tale into the new year. However, it might not push through because of the recent unfortunate condition of her hair.
According to Brown, “Hair dye is used to mask undesired grays. So me thinking that my hair was strong enough to take chemicals…dude, no. It wasn’t,” which makes the hair dye the primary suspected offender.
Brown’s recent video left the viewers wondering if that was genuine or just one of her desperate shenanigans to stay relevant. Many of her viewers questioned the severity of the problem, pointing out that she could just be playing around and that the clumps of hair she holds up were just purchased.
A self-identified cosmetologist @Josie Ivy commented on YouTube a suggestion concerning the trauma of experiencing comparable hair loss:
“Hair can take 90 days to start showing the metabolization of chemical trauma. The parts of your hair that are breaking off are most likely sections that started to grow during your incident. Also, aside from the glue, any sickness, medicines or chemical changes in the body metabolizes in hair. Surgeries, bad viruses, and even any hormonal changes can affect the integrity of your hair. As can outside factors, such as hard water, a change in climate, UV lighting, stress etc. As a licensed cosmetologist I advise you take a supplement under dr supervision for the health of your skin/hair. Also, a metabolic panel blood test can help determine if your thyroid can be the culprit. Or a vitamin deficiency. Also, try to be aware if the hair that is falling out has a root on the end or not. If no root ball, then it is breakage. If there is a white root ball, then it is hair loss, from internal issues. Breakage has no root on it and typically is caused by thermal or chemical damage. Rooted hair loss is usually caused by something health related. Hope this info helps and wish you the best of luck beautiful!”
Brown, on the other hand, deserves our respect for her hard work, but we can’t help but believe she needs to sit down somewhere and let her hair be alone. Though, at this pace, it wouldn’t be a shock anymore if we see her flaunting a baldie look in the coming new year.
