For the ladies: 8 evil lies Lagos hairstylists always tell

You know what’s worse than Lagos tailors? Lagos hairstylists. Most
people think there is nothing worse than Lagos tailors, with their
constant string of lies and disappointments, but surprise, the
hairstylists are way worse, and we have proof.

If you haven’t realized how evil they are before, we’ve run down a
list of lies they tell that prevent us from reaching optimum slayage
levels with our hair.

  1. The style will fit you/The hair is fine.
    For me, this is the worst one. Especially after you’ve already gotten
    the hair done. What’s worse is that other hairstylists and customers in
    the salon will also join in convincing you that the hair actually looks
    good. So you go home, and don’t realize what a state your hair is in,
    until you go to work the next day and a coworker asks you what’s on your
  2. It won’t cut your hair.
    Whether they are trying to convince you to do impossibly tiny
    braids that are sure to take out your whole front-line, or trying to get
    you to do that weird lace bonding thing. They will always tell you it
    won’t cut your hair knowing fully well it would.
  3. The hair you bought is the fake one.
    Even before they bring it out of the pack, or even when they’ve
    never seen it before, whatever hair you bought is fake. And the only
    way the hairstyle you want to do can look good is if you buy the one
    they recommend, which is usually available in their salon or a
    neighbouring one.
  4. I’m almost done just sit down and wait.
    Even if they are just starting with whoever is in their chair,
    the story is always the same. ”The style won’t take long” or ”I’m almost
    done just wait.”

  5. It won’t hurt.
    This is popular for the hairstylists who specialise in braiding
    hair. It’s either “my hand doesn’t pain” or “it won’t pain you like
    that”. Until you get started, and the pain that hits you is on birthing
    levels but you are already stuck with the stylist.

  6. It isn’t dry yet.
    Every single time a hairstylist sticks your head in a dryer,
    chances are the hair is completely dry in about a quarter of the time
    they claim it takes. But for some reason -probably just to torture us-,
    they choose to keeps us under the scorching hot dryers forever.
  7. You hair is due.
    Translation- I just want you to pay more money for this hairstyle you are about to do.

  8.  You need to buy this serum for your weave.
    According to them, there is nothing that doesn’t need serum.
    From natural to synthetic weaves and even your own hair, you just need
    to buy serum for it. Notice how they never know what exactly the serum
    does for your hair?Olive-Oil                   Culled from
