Tiffany Haddish says she will "only listen to gay men" regarding how to style her hair after her ex-husband suggested she get a perm and it all broke off.

"I have definitely done things for a man," Haddish said during a guest appearance on the latest episode of "Red Table Talk" on Facebook Watch, released on Wednesday.

While on the talk show, Haddish spoke to cohosts Jada Pinkett Smith, Willow Smith, and Adrienne Banfield Norris about her traumatic hair experiences.

The "Girls Trip" star said that an ex-boyfriend once told her that she'd look "more beautiful" if her hair length reached her breasts. She also shared a story about the time her ex-husband William Stewart, who she was married to from 2008 to 2013, gave bad hair advice.

"When I got married, I was trying to press out my hair to decide what I wanted my hair to look like, and my ex-husband said, 'I ain't never been with a woman that ain't got no perm. I don't know how I'm gonna be married to you when you ain't got no perm,'" Haddish recalled.

She continued: "I permed my hair, and then, maybe three weeks into the marriage, all my hair broke off."

Haddish said that the moment was a wake-up call.

"I was like, 'That's the last time I listen to some man that I'm laying down with about, how to do my hair,'" she said. "Now I only listen to gay men about my hair."

Now, the comedian refuses to take hair advice from her partner.

"You can't be inside of me telling me what to do with my hair," she said. "If you [are] inside of me, you gotta just roll with how it is. Period. But if you ain't inside of me [and] you got suggestions, I'm gonna listen because you might be a professional. You might know what to do."

Haddish continued: "But if you inside of me, I don't want to hear it. You like it or you don't. You with me or you not."
