EXTREME LENGTHS

 

I love going to the salon because they are great with kids and nice.

My favorite hair-do is to get my braids done "original".
You should really go there, it's fantastic!
Thank you,

As a nurse, personal grooming is a vital part of professional presentation. Additionally, as a female who is barely into her 30s, grooming also plays an important role in my self-confidence. In 2012, being diagnosed with PCOS which has side effects that include male pattern baldness, affected how I felt about myself. I was ashamed with the little hair I had, pulling me away from social events at times and not wanting my pictures taken because of this. I had tried numerous methods to fill the one thing that was stopping me from feeling as beautiful as I am on the inside. These methods included seeking help from doctors for serums to apply, hair oil products online claiming to be hair growth products, hair clinics, wigs, and hair extensions. This void was not fulfilled till I met Tee from Extreme Lengths who I call my “saving grace”.

Tahirah is an amazing woman and the ultimate professional hair guru for hair like mine. 

 

I’ve spent ages looking for services that cater to my kind of hair (I mean years) in Singapore; most salons have dried out my hair and left it in sorrier states. Tahirah’s services and salon are the holy grail for my kind of kinky special hair type. She is my only go to and has been for more than 3 years. I’m grateful to have someone who understands my hair and knows how to masterfully manage and style my hair. Her professionalism and attention to every detail is what I love most about her. She styled and managed my hair for my wedding and that’s a memory that I will treasure forever. She made me look like a queen and always makes me look amazing. 

 

She encourages women like myself to embrace my hair type and has taught me invaluably, to care and nuture my hair. When my hair was damaged, she restored my hair, it’s moisture and my self-confidence. 

 

There’s literally no one else who can do what Tahirah does; she’s a Gem in Singapore and my hair care guru.

Over the past few weeks I've been interviewing for Doctor of Pharmacy programs back in the US. In every interview I've had I have always mentioned Tahirah and Extreme Lengths in regards to the impact she had on me while I was living in Singapore. Some might say what does going to the hairdresser have to do with applying to Pharmacy School?

 

For me, Tahirah was more than my hairdresser, she was a mentor, friend, confidante, and someone I now consider like a big sister. I came into her shop a young and confused African-American girl who had just moved to Singapore for a semester exchange program. I'll never forget breaking down and crying in her salon, as it was the first time I felt comfortable in this foreign location. Everything I had been dealing with for the past few weeks just came out in that first meeting. Tahirah really took me under her wing. 

 

For the rest of my time in Singapore I came to her shop regularly. She took excellent care of my hair. I'm natural, and was seriously struggling to figure out what to do in the humid climate of Singapore. I knew I did not want braids, and a perm was absolutely out of the question. Tahirah helped me get my hair to a manageable state, and I actually felt confidant going out in public! I also have never seen my hair grow as long and as quickly as it did while I was in Singapore!

 

I really could spend hours writing about the impact Tahirah had on my life, she challenged and encouraged me in ways that I absolutely needed! I truly felt I grew as an individual; from that feeble, distraught girl when we first met to someone who is more confident, self-assured, and not afraid of new and unorthodox experiences. I definitely have Tahirah to thank for the role she played in getting me to this point. I highly recommend her salon to anyone who may be living or traveling through Singapore!!
