How would you feel when you are using a product to fix your damaged hair, instead of making your hair healthy, it does the opposite and causes all your hair to fall out. Yes, that's what happened to the YouTuber-actress Hannah Forcier (b. May 22, 1996) who accidentally lost all her hair after using a new product without reading a warning.
Born Hannah Grace Forcier, she grew up in New Hampshire in the care of author mother, Becky McMahon Matthews, and father Chris Matthews with her brothers, Noah Enos and Zach Matthews, and sisters, Heather Buteau and Danielle Forcier. After graduating from high school in New Hampshire, she then relocated to LA to pursue her acting career in 2016 where she lived with actor Josh Cummins and YouTuber Caulin Donaldson.
However, the 26-year-old has now returned to Philadelphia, PA, where she is currently attending a beauty school. Besides, she is a vegan and a very climate-conscious individual who only uses reusable water bottles, thrift clothes, secondhand appliances, clean emission vehicles, and has cut down the use of plastic as much as possible in order to prevent climate change. Not to forget, she has even got compost worms in order to make her home eco-friendly.
Hannah Forcier Became Viral for Her Untraditional Hair Loss.
You may have heard a fair share of "beauty horror stories," and Hannah Forcier's hair loss story is still a nightmare to many. Back in 2017, the American native was getting ready for a date when she decided to try a $20 drugstore relaxer on her head without reading the warnings on it.
The warning on the relaxer had clearly stated that the product is not to be used in chemically damaged hair. And Forcier had bleached & dyed her hair just one year before this incident. So, after using the relaxer and conditioner as per the instruction on the box to a T. and letting the treatment process for the recommended amount of time, she stepped into the shower to wash it out.
The result of the ordeal wasn't completely unsavory.

Her whole world crumbled apart after her hair started falling out in clumps to the point that it drained her shower. Shocked, she went to the salon with her then-roommate in the hopes that they could repair the damage and salvage her hair. To her dismay, her damage was beyond repair and she was forced to shave her head.
Forcier shared this horrific incident on her YouTube channel, Hannah Forcier with the video titled How all my hair fell out by making one mistake. Even though Forcier was reluctant to name the brand of that relaxer, she finally revealed that she used ORS Olive Oil Hair Relaxer in her video titled, (Scary) Reliving The Moment My Hair Fell Out From A Relaxer.
The video went viral all over the internet with over 15 million views. This bizarre accident caused such a stir in the beauty industry that it caught the attention of celebrity hairstylist, Brad Mondo and was covered by famous media outlets like Daily Mail, Cosmopolitan, Allure, and so on.
Meanwhile, this incident hampered Hannah's self-confidence and she started having anxiety issues at first. However, she now has learned to embrace inner beauty and even shaved her hair after one year of the incident, to commemorate its anniversary as an act of support for individuals who don’t feel confident or satisfied with their appearance.
What's more, she is even thankful for this incident as it helped her grow as a person and got to understand the importance of self-love. Forcier also admitted that it inspired her to create content to remind all that a beauty disaster can happen to anyone and it does not mean the end of happiness.
