  • Have You Ever Been Burned?

     

    I took the survey,One thing is I am not...

    I thought about adding that question to the survey Safiyyah

    I worded the first question thusly:

    Have you ever or do you currently have a relaxer or texturizer?

    I do eventually want to know how many natural heads there are out there and how many relaxed heads, but right now I want to find out if 1)you have ever been burned by a relaxer and 2) how do you feel about highly textured hair.

    As this organization starts to grow, I defintely will add that survey point to the site...just to get a feel for what we are doing to our heads out there.

    THANK YOU ALL AGAIN, FOR HELPING OUT WITH THE RESEARCH! You are all phenomenal.

    Hey I was also wondering, if things like this can hit Commercials, like the "TRUTH" Commercials does about Smoking. I think we should have some Ideas posted about what the Commercial should be about and etc. That should really open alotta people's Eyes about that.

    Good job. I just took the survey! I've been burned and had a bald spot in the name of "beauty." Lord deliver us from the evil lye!

    I'm so excited to see you moving forward. Please PM or email me if I can assist you with anything.

    Hey I was also wondering, if things like this...

    what if there was a commercial, with a woman saying something like "My hairstylist didn't tell me that I would lose my hair/ have scalp burns, etc." Or "This is not what I expected when I used this healthy sfe perm with botanicals/pineapple enzymes [insert name here]." Maybe she could be combing her hair, and clumps of it could be falling out?

    Or maybe a young girl could say, "Mommy said I had to get my hair permed to be beautiful. Well, I don't feel so beautiful now." Maybe she could talk about how it burns...show the camera sores (can this be done with makeup?) on her scalp?

    My Idea For the Commercial:

    I think that they should have one about a Mother and a Daughter. The Daughter is Sitting in a High Chair. And then, it'll go something like this....
    (The Mother, Holding A Jar of Creme(Perm)

    The Mother: Wanna Look Really Pretty?
    (Big Smile of Excitement)
    The Daughter: Yes Mommy!
    (Mother then Starts to mix Creme, getting Ready to Apply it to her Daughters Hair)
    The Mother: Ok Then! Now, this is gonna sting a little bit, but that will only mean it's Working!
    (Mother Applies Creme to her Daughter's Hair And Scalp, and then All of a Sudden A Burst of Flames Ingulf over the Childs Scalp. Then the Child's Happy Face Turns into a look of Terror and Pain)
    The Daughter: AAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!! My Head is on Fire! My Head is On Fire Momma!!! (The Child Jumps out of the Chair and runs to the Kitchen Faucet Fanning Her Head)
    The Mother: Wait!!! You have to keep it on for 20 to 30 minutes!
    (Child Turns on Kitchen Faucet And Cools down her hair, *A Loud Sizzling Sound is Heard while the Water Cools Off her hair*.)

    Caption: LOCCorg, Help Stop a Child from Being Burned.

    *Or whatever Catch Phrase ya'll Agree on*

    END OF COMMERCIAL

    Thanks. I just took what I remembered from me getting a Perm in my Early Childhood(I use to fan my head when it would burn). I mean it literally feels like your Head is in Flames! I am so Glad that I stopped living the "NO LYE" Lie.

    Pookey, I think a tag line for LOCC should be "We Like it Kinky "...it would look good for the light-hearted side and adult T-shirts...just a thought.

    I took the survey too. Fortunately, I never got all of the awful effects of perm'ing although I suffered some pretty severe burns. UNfortunately, when I got to the "phrases about nappy hair" section, I had to check every.single.one. Except the one about having a big head. I probably did, but I was done in on negative thinking before I even got that far. Considering that my head was too big/wrong shape, etc. would have required that I even consider the notion of going nappy for at least a "moment".

    Oh well, that was then....this is now. Thanks for the survey Pookey. It surely did make me think.

    Great job, Pookey! You are definitely on the ball. I'm looking forward to LOCC making an impact on the beauty industry.

    fftopic That commercial idea reminded me of a news story I read this weekend. A lady was getting her hair done by her daughter when the house caught on fire. The story didn't mention what she was getting "done" to her hair, but I'm willing to bet it was a perm. All I could think was I hope she got to the sink in time - those fire hoses could be painful on a tender scalp...

    Took the survey! Wow I feel like I was so messed up in the head for once actually having gone through the pain of relaxers and actually believing some of the phrases about what's considered attractive. I'm happy I've grown. So happy...
