These methods of recovering from a bad haircut are amazing, one may never think of others except covering with a wig. I had a bad haircut experience last year, the best shot for me would have been braiding but it didn’t occur to me so I went for wigs until my hair has regrown. Thanks for sharing this useful information.

Hi Bethel, yes sometimes you think you only have one option but when you are in a rush and there’s no time you just have to think of other options. Glad it was useful to you. 

This is a very valuable post. Because we can face things like this unexpectedly. I also encountered something like this once. All I did then was cut my entire hair. All those days I was wearing a cap. Keep posting like this. Very valuable post. I will definitely be sharing this.

I am glad to know that it was of use to you, you definitely don’t have to use a cap the whole time or cut your entire hair.
