A woman who was suing for damages after a weave job done too tight caused hair loss, an intense scalp infection and serious scarring received some advice and support from actress and former reality star Tami Roman.
The 49-year-old was a guest on the show Personal Injury Court with Judge Gino Brogdon. Brought in as a “hair icon,” Roman offered her own experience with hair mishaps. She shared that it was a recent dye job she had done that caused her to experience great hair loss, which inspired her to go natural.
“Ooooh chile, let me tell you,” she said. “I’ve dyed my hair most of my life because I greyed early. So I went to my stylist and I said, ‘I want you to take my hair to platinum blonde,’ and he said, ‘You know, it’s going to be difficult.’ I said, ‘I still want it.’ And six weeks later, all the hair fell out. I wanted what I wanted and now I’m bald.”
She snatched off the wig she wore on the show, showing off a TWA underneath her wig cap and joked/warned, “You’re gonna get what you want.”
Roman did briefly mention, when she showed off her TWA on Instagram back in September, that she lost some hair during a dye job.
“Went from black to blonde, lost a lot but it’s just hair 🤷🏽♀️ so I’m taking this opportunity to start over…natural hair journey begins!” she wrote at the time. “What hair products do you guys recommend to help me transition?”
One can only assume her hair is flourishing though, because Roman’s been rocking wigs and hiding that ‘fro ever since she shared her new look. Either way though, it was certainly a cute style change for the star — and a fresh start.
As for the plaintiff on Personal Injury Court though, whose hair loss was so great, Tracy Adams received some justice for her situation. The defendant, Cheryl “The Weaving Queen” Brown was found in the wrong and ordered to pay $480,000 for medical bills, future medical bills for the treatment she would need to cover up her bald spot, and for pain and suffering. While money won’t undue what damage has already been done, all those bills can certainly dry some tears!
