Call in to speak with the host
Let’s Talk with Dr. Wendy host Wendy Johnson preaches on the dangers of chemical straighteners, which she knows firsthhand. “I decided to go natural after I noticed about a year ago that my hair was shedding like mad. And I’m upset with myself for not making the transition earlier. I had an episode about 10 years ago where all the hair on my crown fell out. I thought I was sick, so I went to the dermatologist. She showed me a book with pictures of black women who had nearly gone bald because they continued to use a relaxer on a damaged area. In my case, I had to get steroid shots on the top of my head for eight months before my hair grew back.”
It's good to talk.
