First was to come up with a name.
I wanted something that would remind me of how people reacted
when their hair did not act right. I could see in my minds eye
people throwing brushes, etc. The name had to be one word and
catchy. I enlisted family members to help with the task. There
was a $100 reward for the person to come up with the name. One
brother-in-law took on the challenge. Soon he had a full page of
words. One of the words was “Tantrum” He wrote down this word
in response to some of the kids throwing a temper tantrum. I
liked the word. It was catchy. It reminded me of how people
reacted to hair that was stressful.
