Fans Praise New TLC ‘Bad Hair Day’ As Hope For The Hopeless

Bad Hair Day

A new reality TV show is coming to TLC called Bad Hair Day and it has fans all in and ready to support it. Even more, a lot of fans reacted to the show’s promo with the hope that TLC would make more shows of this type.

TLC’s Bad Hair Day bringing hope to many viewers

Bad Hair Day is a new TLC show that shows doctors treating patients with conditions such as alopecia, trichotillomania, and psoriasis. This condition is especially notable since Jada Pinkett Smith’s battle with alopecia was spotlighted at the Oscars, albeit in a negative manner when her husband Will Smith struck comedian Chris Rock for mocking her for it.

The TLC show will put a serious spotlight on the conditions, and showcase doctors helping people dealing with this hair condition, as well as other afflictions dealing with loss or with unwanted growth of hair. The hair conditions in this series won’t be ones that stylists can fix. These conditions can cause pain, frustration, and embarrassment, and the doctors are there to help.

Dr. Lopez, Dr. Phipps, and Dr. Singh are the three doctors helping people with their hair conditions on the show. “Hair really affects people’s mental health and the way they feel about themselves,” Phipps said in the promo video. People in the video said they experienced the “lowest point” in their lives and called their condition “unbearable.” Luckily, these conditions are treatable and this show brings hope to the hopeless.

Dr. Idha Lopez is a dermatologist in Houston, Texas. On the show, she helped a woman with psoriasis, a man who uses his hair to cover a growth on his scalp, and a couple who said the man has “smelly hair syndrome.” Dr. Angie Phipps is a hair restoration surgeon in North Carolina. She helped patients with third-degree burns, male pattern baldness, and trichotillomania. Dr. Meena Singh is a hair restoration surgeon in Kansas City. She helped people with excessive hair growth, traction alopecia, and embarrassing hair loss.

Fans ready for more shows like this on TLC

TLC has offered shows like Bad Hair Day before. One of its more popular shows was Dr. Pimple Popper with Dr. Sandra Lee. There was also a show called My Feet Are Killing Me with podiatrists helping people with foot problems. Finally, with this latest addition, fans want to see more of this type of show on TLC, and maybe fewer shows like 90 Day Fiance and Welcome to Plathville.

After the promo hit Instagram, TLC fans rejoiced and made their voices heard about wanting more shows like this on the network.

“This! ..this is what TLC needs to go back too!!” one fan wrote in the comments. Another fan responded directly to them, writing, “exactly!!! They’re more jerry springer instead of the learning channel.”

“Yes!!! This is the stuff I love to watch! More this, less scripted phony ‘reality’ shows,” wrote another.

“I love seeing shows like this on TLC that genuinely help wonderful beautiful people!” a third wrote.

“I love these shows… that HELP people! Good job on this one TLC!!” another said.

  1. need to be on show lost my son he was 10 was killed all my hair is out also my teeth np insurance please help me please

  2. Are there any new treatments for frontal fibrosing alopecia? I am using Rogaine for women every night, taking Dutasteride 0.5 mg daily, have gotten cortisone injections every 3-4 months. While the loss has slowed down some I am still losing hair. Mt widow’s peak is completely gone I have lost a good 1/2 inch around my face and have almost completely lost my sideburns. I keep going to my dermatologist for this and eczema. I was on Dupixent and it worked for a few months, then stopped working, now I am on Methotrexate 2.5 mg, 6 tabs once every week for the eczema.

    1. Hi I have comments I really enjoy the show, love seeing the results. One when they’re talking about black woman’s bald spots on the edges ,as a hairdresser my experience of talking to them, if they put the relaxer directly on the sides first , on the edges, front of the ears and the bottom part of the neck are the weakest part of their hair , had the damage or breakage or bald spots. That’s why they have to wear silk scarves over the coats, so it won’t eat the hair up, which would cause eventually breakage or baldness also. What I also found black & lovely relaxers I noticed way back when, broke their hair off , could have contribute to the bald sides, or putting there could have damage the growth. Maybe you could let known that they need to start the relaxers in the back of the head, then the top edges last and not directly on the scalp, and maybe the breakage or the bald spots may not happen.
      I also heard royal jelly supposedly helps make the hair grow back, and stops the hair loss, also prenatal vitamins help hair and nail grow ,and biotin, suggestion to maybe research they May help the patients.

  3. I was diagnosed with Alopecia a few years ago. My two daughters are getting married and I would love to get my hair to grow back. I have been hesitant to even try anything. There have been times when my hair has grown back some. Please help!
