Sometimes it's best to let the professionals take care of your hair.

I know, it's cheaper if you do it yourself, but there's a lot that can go wrong.

Like all of your hair falling out.


Loraine Blake, an Instagram influencer, liked to share videos and photos of herself trying out new looks on her hair. A quick look through her feed shows it blue, red, yellow and even white.

That said, if you're looking at it right now, you'll see the most recent photos show her head shaved.

There's a reason for that.

Blake's habit of coloring her hair didn't mix well with her plan to relax her hair. She likes to stream when she's doing something new, and this plan to relax her hair for finger waves was no different.

The problem is she had just bleached her hair a few days before. The mixture of powerful chemicals didn't treat her hair well, and during her live stream, clumps of hair started falling out.

It doesn't take long for Blake to realize what was happening, but she's in so much shock, she can only stare at the hair in disbelief. Another attempt to comb her hair takes out more of it. After a few seconds she runs off camera.

Lucky for the internet, Blake's friend Adriana Solis was recording the video.

She shared it to Twitter where it quickly went viral.

The two friends were interviewed by Buzzfeed News, where they gave their thoughts on the situation.

Solis share her solidarity with her friend, explaining,

"I was dying — I felt the struggle because I bleached my hair two years ago and at one point it just started falling out, and I kept combing it like her."

Blake vented all her feelings in that moment; Everything she was experiencing when she saw that clump of hair in her brush.

"I felt so insecure."

The internet can understand that pain and shared their condolences.



It's not all doom and gloom. Blake's mother helped her shave her head and build her confidence. The response of positivity has helped too.

But this is the internet. We all know we're here for the jokes.

And jokes there were.




It can be really easy to see how embarrassing this might be. Being a teenager making a mistake in the age of the internet means your mistakes are forever.

Despite the jokes, Blake's confidence wins out in the end. She shared her new look with all the confidence of a model.

"Everyone on social media has been so nice to me, complimenting me on how it looks good."

And we gotta admit, it looks really good.


Luckily, this story had a happy ending, but still serves as a cautionary tale. Mixing powerful chemicals in your hair isn't a great idea.

Best to leave that to your hair stylist.

There are certain things you should not be skimpy about when it comes time to buy them. For example: toiletries. Why in the world would you want to use somebody else's toothbrush? A used toothbrush, we should underscore.

You'd run away screaming if you saw a used one sitting on a shelf at Goodwill, wouldn't you? Of course you would. You would immediately go to the pharmacy and pick up a brand new one, like a smart person.

People Imagine How They'd React If Someone Offered Them $50K For Their Pet

I've got a decent amount of animals - some fish, turtles, dogs, etc. - but out of all of them, Optimus Prime is definitely *my* pet.

He's kind of a jerk to everyone else, but a with me he's a the biggest bestest beefaroni boy.

That is an outright lie, this dog is awfully behaved and taught himself how to open doors so he stays letting mosquitos in the house and air conditioning all of South Florida instead of just my living room. I just have a soft spot for him.

But here's the thing - soft spot or not, if someone offered me $50k for this dog, my reaction wouldn't be horror because I just love my "shmoopies" and even can't imagine. I'm not that privileged.

People Explain How They Got Their Scars

Two years ago I steamed a hole in my belly with a hot water bottle that was slightly open.

I didn't feel myself literally cooking because I have nerve damage in the area, but I still have a quarter-sized circular scar as proof!

I've got lots of scars, but my lobster steam stamp is one of my newer additions so it's kind of a fan favorite right now.

Have you ever heard of a certain job that people call a career and thought... "PEOPLE PAY YOU FOR THAT?!?!"

All hard, honest work is good work.

And then there is just trash work.

And I don't mean garbage collection, that is honest work.

I don't know how some people live with themselves.

Redditor MrTuxedo1 wanted to discuss the careers they don't believe people should chase. They asked:

"What job do you have no respect for?"
