A man in Melbourne has had his hair straightened and straightened straight on the spot by a professional hair stylist.
The man, who wished to remain anonymous, told the ABC the procedure involved using a comb, a scalpel and an electric pressure device to straighten his hair.
“It was done for free, with no compensation offered to the customer,” he said.
“I was so happy.
I thought that was amazing.”
The man said he had a hair condition called Lymphatic Fibrosis, which is the result of too much hair growth.
“My hair is so curly and curly it doesn’t straighten properly,” he told ABC Radio Melbourne.
“So I needed straightening and straightening straightened me.”
He was able to get a haircut, straightening his hair with the help of a professional stylist, but he said he didn’t want to do it all over again.
“For the sake of my own hair, I need straightening,” he explained.
“If it was to be done for nothing, I would not be doing it at all.
I have to do this for my own health.”
The Australian Bureau of Statistics reported that in 2011-12, Australian women aged 25 to 44 had the third highest rate of hair loss in the country.
