We hear a lot of stories about how the GinaCurl is life changing, but this is an example of the GinaCurl giving a client the strength to remove herself from a toxic situation. We provide our services to help our clients feel their best, look their best and enjoy the free time to do what they love to do. We never really know the true impact it makes unless we hear it from you our client.
We received this letter from one of our clients and it truly moved us. With her permission we wanted to share her story with you. We’re glad she’s safe, healthy, happy, and that we are able to convey an uplifting atmosphere that empowered her to get the help she needed and safely exit from a bad situation. Here’s what she had to say.
It’s been a long year and a half since I’ve gotten my last GinaCurl. During that time, I was involved in a relationship that was physically, mentally, financially, and emotionally abusive. My ex had massive control over my self-esteem and made me believe that I was not beautiful wearing my natural hair, among other things. The fact of the matter though, was that he noticed how good I looked and felt with my GinaCurl. As a result, he would get jealous and violent that people constantly complimented me on my hair.
A few months ago when he saw that I submitted a GinaCurl consultation, he stole my bank cards, took my laptop, and pulled hard, until he ripped out a chunk of my hair. That was the last straw! That was the day I decided it was over!
Today, I am so happy to be a domestic violence survivor! I was able to go into shelter and seek counselling which has led me to reflect on my life and on the service I received at Hair’s Talent.
I share my story with you to let you know that your services mean more to me than just a hairdo. My GinaCurl was my way of feeling beautiful even during my year and a half of abuse and oppression. Thank you and I hope that once I am financially stable again, I will be back in your chair Gina. Until then, I’ve attached some photos a colleague of mine took. Both my natural curl pattern and the chemically treated hairs are still defined. I am slowly gaining my confidence back and it feels awesome!
