Urgent Update on My hair Health Condition

African Pride - Urgent Update on My hair Health Condition

African Pride - Urgent Update on My hair Health Condition - Image 3

Dear all,

I hope this message finds you well. I am writing to inform you about a severe psychological and medical crisis that I am currently facing, which has left me in an extremely distressed state.

It has become apparent that my situation requires both psychological and medical treatment.

This past Sunday night, I experienced a significant deterioration in my hair health after using the "Olive Miracle Deep Conditioner" from the African Pride company. Just 45 minutes after applying the product, my scalp began to burn, leading to the distressing situation I am now facing. This issue has progressed to the point where I am unable to lead a normal life or even leave my home due to its appearance. Seeking immediate medical attention, I visited Polymer Hospital yesterday due to persistent pain and itching on my scalp.

Today, I also consulted with my primary doctor. Both healthcare professionals have conducted examinations, and I have all the necessary reports and images that confirm the inflammation in my scalp and the substantial hair loss I have experienced.

To provide you with a better understanding of the severity of my situation, I have shared images illustrating the inflammation of my scalp and the significant hair loss I have endured. It is truly disheartening to witness how my once beautiful and soft hair has turned brittle and damaged, ultimately leaving my head almost completely bald.

I find myself at a loss regarding the next steps to take, and I cannot overstate the emotional impact of losing my hair. I am reaching out to you for support and guidance in finding solutions to overcome these difficulties.

You're understanding and assistance during this challenging time would mean a great deal to me. The damage to my hair need a lot of expenses to fix the doctor and the salon need at least 6 to 8 months to my scalp and hair heal plus I need to add extensions to cover the damaged scalp and hair when i contact with company to deny any help.

Sincerely,

Shaimaa Hassan

I purchased the African Pride Olive Deep Conditioner anti breakage relaxer. Before my hair was even processed my hair came out in massive chunks with no warning such as , burning, itching or any kind of discomfort. While one of my locks fell in the sink I knew I had a problem. I was horrified when I looked into the mirror. Im am embarrassed and emotionally traumatized by this experience.

Maybe next time you will follow the directions and do the strand test prior to applying the product to your entire head

As a African American female I have been relaxing my hair since I was a child, so I am very much advanced in how to apply a relaxer to my edges. So this comment is more for a person who never used this product before. Thank for your opinion.

African Pride - My hair fell out,

Simply purchase the product in regular strength, applied it to a small piece of my all natural hair no signs within 5 mins thought everything was good to go, so applied to full head waited the normal wait time 20 mins went to wash out , and my hair started falling out. In chucks , it took all my length and left me confident that this wasnt my fault.

I am experienced in perm my own hair never not one time in nearly a lifetime have every been injured by a product. This is extreme .

The emotional destress in unreal, i am looking in the mirror, and going blank i just feel like i lost a part of me. Seriously, this is the worst

My moms hair fell out completely and so did mine our scalps are burnt we are traumatized. We had naturally long hair. My mom was washing out the product and chunks of her hair all came out she was screaming and crying shes on anti depressants all her hair is gone. We never thought this could happen to us we just wake up crying everyday, this is a nightmare. Do not use this product, theres also already a lawsuit happening against this brand for causing Uterine cancer.

Immediately Baldness

I bought the Olive Deep Conditioning No Lye Relax and after 3 minutes started I noticed one of my locs fell out, so I look closer and saw a bald spot. I washed it out noticing all my hair in the sink. Leaving me with both sides bald and the entire back gone. I have been doing this every four months and never experienced this. No warning such as burning, itching or nothing to prompt me to wash it out. There are too many complaints of the same exact situation for this product to remain in the store. This needs to be removed from the shelves to protect other customers.

The bald spot didn’t prompt you to rinse it out?

Yes it did. And you are looking at the aftermath of rinsing it out offer 3 mins.

The product is simply a faulty *** product that needs to be pulled. Leaving it on the shelf to continue to harm other consumers is considered GROSS NEGLIGENCE!!

African Pride - Horrible product

African pride Miracle No lye relaxer dont know where and how to begin. I am totally disappointed in your product.

I have just used the relaxer and it was worst experience ever. My hair is as dry as a straw, shedding and not to mention the incredible amount of hair loss. I cant look at myself in the mirror. I have lost a lot of hair and I dont think this is normal.

My hair was perfectly fine before your horrible product. It has ruined me.

I agree with your comments. Experienced hair loss after using the african pride no-lye relaxer regular.

Hair fell off from both sides of my head. Made a center part after relaxing my hair and patches of bare scalp can be seen. Hair feels fried and removing without even combing (just by using hands to rub the hair). Thought twice whether it was the relaxer or something else.

The lady who relaxed my hair never used scissors or anything like that after relaxing. First time using the relaxer and the experience was not a good one. Been relaxing my hair since childhood and this is the first experience of hair loss. So much patches of bare scalp on my head.

Had to apply hair growth products immediately to restore hair to fulness. The hair looks and feels dried totally. Applied lots of leave-in conditioner to moisturize hair.

PLEASE, DO NOT BUY AFRICAN PRIDE RELAXER. IT'S A BAD PRODUCT.

Look for coumarin in the ingredients list on AP products & others. It is a literal rat poison chemical.

Look up www.stopthegenocide.com these products contain a rat poison chemical that is being combined with corrosives & other toxic chemicals which is the cause of the damage you & millions of other people are experiencing.

I bought the Shea moisture leave in conditioner and in one month my hair is falling out. So much so that I have to wear a wig. I've never used any of your products before and I never will again.

The Customer service rep stated she was not an expert or had a lot of knowledge of products. Wouldn't answer questions about the cancer scare, was totally evasive.. could answer questions about if I could use a Wella hair glaze after I relaxed hair with Olive oil relaxer. Begin her call by coughing and clearing her throat in phone. Had a rude tone to voice!
