'Shaving my hair with razor gave me bumps' - actress Mercy Johnson

"I shaved my hair for a movie role where I play the role of a widow. The movie is titled 'Heart of a Widow'. To make the role believable, I agreed to shave my hair. But they used razor to shave it and so it gave me bumps. I'm using New Medrol on the bumps now. I have to wait for the bumps to heal before going to the salon for further treatment, but I have no regrets" Mercy Johnson to Ngozi Nwankwo of Encomium Mag

    People were actually right when they said she had danddruff, craw craw, lapalapa etc when Linda posted her bald headed picture. Nollywood and lack of professionalism. Only God knows the peanut she was paid and the agony she went through after. But one thing I like about her is that she did not regret her action.

    Do you seriouslt think that she would tell a national soft-sell mag that she regrets her actions? She needs you to go watch the movie. What is special about cutting your hair off? That isn't professionalism, it's just a lack of props. Bald caps are very popular in the US and are quite cheap. People use them for halloween and costume parties for crying out loud. And why would you let anyone use a razor on your head? Didn't she think about the consequences at first? Just because you can shave youir hair off doesn't mean you can act. So, it's all bull**** at the end of the day to me

    Linda, is it by force to post on this chick? who cares what she had on her head.
    its so unprofessional for them to be using a razor to begin with. why not use the ACTUAL tools that are used in cutting hair? i guess they will say there was no power to use the electric razor. lol
    abeg, enough with this chick.

    She was bald in the first place, under those hideous wigs. She needs more people.

    Shave or no shave, the movie will be a waste of time.

    She was already suffering from every hair problem due to her insane love for lack of proper hair care practices you could think of: alopecia, breakage, overprocessed hair, dandruff, overly burnt scalp due to wrong application of relaxers by the whack hair professionals we have in nigeria.
    To be honest she needed a fresh start. By the way copying edith jane azu-ayalogu in cutting her hair doesn't mean professionalism. Since that woman cut off her beautiful long hair, together with bimbo akintola every ada, bola and aisha in nollywood has been following suit.

    na una know o..

    i'm sure she didnt ask linda to post this..
    i also think the cutting with razor might have been a scene in the movie depicting how widows heads are shaved in the villages..she has not said she's a better actress because she shaved her head..
    also, its her hair...she can do what she likes with it...u dont have to see the movie..maybe u arent even part of the target audience..
    i think the attack on Mercy is really unnecessary..give it a rest already..peeps!

    Thanks o...

    If you guys do not have anything good to say about anyone, don't say anything at all.

    She was simply gisting a reporter and it got on here. Abi she should lie that shaving her hair and all that was exiting and pretend to be a super actress.

    Professionalism is doing what it takes to achieve the desired purpose and that what she did.
    You guys should stop hating and appreciate hard and good work.

    No news. By the way, what should they have used to shave her hair in a village setting? A clipper? I bet she earned her worth from the role, so no complaints.
