On the most recent episode of her YouTube show, Solarsido, MAMAMOO‘s Solar discussed her damaged hair and took us on the journey with her to fix it. There are many idols who have been plagued with damaged hair from all of the bleaching and dyeing they must do. However, even Solar’s hair stylists said that it was “the most severe condition they’ve seen.” Her hair damage was so bad that she even had to go to the hospital for scalp treatments.

I’ve talked about it a lot. I’ve been dyeing my hair and my roots again, and because of this, my hair has become really damaged. My hair kept breaking off. It’s broken off to here now.

She talked about wanting to cut it up to her ears to help it, but doesn’t think she’d be able to handle it. She was upset that she’d have to cut it but stated it was now “unavoidable”.

From there, she took us with her to the hairdresser. She nervously told the stylists to put it at her shoulder instead of at her ears like she suggested earlier. The stylist said that all of her hair except the roots were damaged.
