I cheated!!

And i feel really bad..

No folks...i did NOT cheat on the love of my life.....so banish those thoughts from your heads right now!!!

I cheated on my hairdresser with my pedicurist...*Sigh* The story goes like this: I was planning to wash my hair today...no easy task with more than my share of hair and loc's that almost unravel as soon as water touches them (hence my propensity for only washing when i go my loctician every six weeks). So i am getting a pedicure and the talk turns to hair and i am informed that they also do grooming of locs...so a light bulb went off in my head and i thought to myself "why not get my hair washed here." Now i expressly stated that i only wanted it washed and palm rolled and i was assured that this would be so.

Next thing i know the loc'ing tool comes out..i insist there is no need to tighten i am again assured that no tightening just a single pull through to get them sitting down...however 4 hours later, my hair has been fully groomed, the normal cost for grooming is then INCREASED (due to the amount of hair they say) and i have lost at least two hours of my day that i was planning to dedicate to work (that i still have to do by the way).

Now i was to see my regular hairdresser in two weeks, but i will have to forego that visit and i feel really shitty, like i just stabbed a friend in the back...*sigh*

Am i the only one who can't get hairdressers to listen to me???

Doesn't sound like cheatin', that sounds like force (i.e. no means no). Dual occupation: pedicurist by day, steamroller 24/7.

You should not have paid them. Next time, up front ask how much for the wash and palm roll, state that thats what you want, nothing more and then stick to your word. Next time you ask for a wash, thats all you'll get.

It's amazing how we have a sense of loyalty to our barbers and hairdressers in the case of females.

mi dear, because they spend time working on intimate parts of our body and sometimes helping us feel better, we make ourselves feel things we shouldn't pay to feel. mi nuh bizness wha dem wa'ah call dem self, loctitian, toetician, whatever. move on and find somebody who is going to do what you need and are paying for.

LOL!!! Sorry Kara. This is why I don't go to any hairdresser or shop...they are too pushy and will get over on me.
