After a harsh perm, Oprah's hair started falling out. "Then I did what balding men do," she says. "You try to hold onto the four hairs you have and slick it over with some Dippity-Do." Finally, Oprah was forced shave her head. "For years I wouldn't put anything in my hair," Oprah says.
Watch as Oprah relives the nightmare.
But Oprah's not the only one who's been traumatized by a bad perm. Jasmine Lawrence lost all of her hair at age 11 after a bad relaxing perm. "It got to the point where I only had hair on the top of my head, so I was braiding it down to cover up this area where I had no hair," she says. "It really changed my life and the way I reacted to other people looking at me and staring."
