RELAXING your hair can be a super convenient way to permanently straighten your locks and abate the need for time-consuming styling.
But one TikToker found that trying to do it yourself can have pretty disastrous effects, after she applied the product only for her hair to start falling out in clumps.

Matshidiso, a content creator who posts using the handle @m__matshidiso, recently documented her attempt at relaxing her own hair for her 11.4k TikTok followers.
Captioning the clip “relaxing hair fail”, the unfortunate influencer added a voiceover to the footage explaining to viewers how the incident unfolded.
The first clip showed Matshidiso donning protective disposable gloves while applying the cream to her tresses.
The stunner meanwhile explains that “this happened to me a month before my graduation so before you laugh in the comments, I need you to know that is a SENSITIVE issue.”
Matshidiso’s voiceover then ends as the video cuts to the original footage, where the stunning influencer is shown calmly stating: “This video might take a bit of a turn, ummm… I think my hair is falling out.”
The poor TikToker stared in disbelief at the clumps of her hair in her hands, adding the caption, “you are even shaking my guy”.
Matshidiso then confessed that she left the potent potion on for another 25 minutes, despite the fact “all the signs were there”.
The video then cuts to Matshidiso washing the product out in a large basin, with huge clumps of her hair falling out in her hands and floating in the water.
“My hair is gone!” she exclaimed while clutching at her locks.
Her clip has racked up a huge 1.8m views in just five days, with people sharing their sympathy for Matshidiso in the comments.
“I know you [sic] laughing just to stop yourself from crying,” one user wrote.
“I’m sorry sis,” another added.
Matshidiso eventually obliged to demands for a part two, revealing how she made the best of the unfortunate occurrence.
The stunning influencer decided to crop her remaining tresses really short, and modelled the gorgeous style while adding: “At least I’m pretty!”
“I’m back and I’m better guys,” she concluded.
