Ignore this if it's a repost. It's almost a year old. I can't get the reply box off of prompt mode so I hyperlinked it:

I big chopped at about 8 or 9 but back then it was called your hair deciding to leave of its own accord cause yo moms put a jheri curl on top of a perm. I guess u could say i transitioned to no hair. Lol

chile...*sighs* I had a perm...it was growing out and she took it into her head that i'd be cute with a curl.  I tried to tell her that I ain't want no curl but u know how most parent's don't really care what u want when it comes to this sort of thing.  smh.  I cried and cried when my hair fell out...kids ragged on me hard....I would stay in the house.  She kicked me out the house to play when she realized I hadn't been outside except for school for like a straight week. and I didn't speak to her unless I had to for the longest time. I can laugh now but at the time....

My mom did the opposite. I had a jheri curl then mom put a relaxer in afterwards. Needless to say i was soon rocking the early 90s Toni Braxton at the age of 11.

If I'm not mistaken from what the girl said in the video she wasn't relaxed anyway. She was still natural the only reason she BC'd was from heat damage from her parents blow drying her hair.

i transitioned at like 10-12....i begged my mom for a perm....she gave me one...and then my hair fell out. and then she was like "do you want another perm?" i said no and that was the end of that.  years later i relaxed again...at like 16 or so.

The little girl said herself in the video she's the one that wanted to cut her hair off not her parents. Also what does her having to go to school have to do with anything? It's just hair it'll grow back. The worse that can happen is kids calling her bald headed or something of the sorts.

Nicey I get what you're saying. But, she's 10! So that decision IMO, shouldn't be made by her. I have a daughter and she goes through so many phase, (dabbling with color) and she also cut her hair off (the sides)...and we fought tooth and nail for her to stop getting the sides cut off.because I refused to see the foolishness she was doing to herself. At 10 you are going though many changes, and cutting your hair to a caesar, may not be the best idea.
 
Plus I can't help but think what was the motive in posting the video? The child didn't post it herself did she? It must've been the parents.

which may be worse. Maybe she decided to cut her hair completely off to garner attention to her yt channel? Either way, I don't think she should be making that decision at 10.

That's the child's youtube channel so I wouldn't be surprised if she posted it herself especially since most kids these days know more about navigating the internet than adults do. And seeing as how she did it for the health of her hair I don't see what the big deal is especially if she's saying her hair was heat damaged due to things her mom was doing to her hair. Judging from the videos she has on her channel it looks like she does her research on how to maintain her hair and keep it healthy. IMO if the parents were allowing her to walk around with a head full of sewn in blonde yaki weave that weighed more than she did THEN that would be a cause for side eyeing them.

her hair was obviously damaged.

if you look at the condition of her hair from her big chop video
to her post chop video.

at such a young age-- she's doing what ppl wait decades to learn (if they ever learn at all)
healthy hair practices.

so for that i applaud her.

being upset at her cutting her damaged hair-- and learning to be better.
is like me seeing a kid exercising and rolling my eyes.

Her hair is beautiful I agree that kids go through changes and may end up not liking their hair. But, hair isn't that important to everyone and when she talked about if she ever got cancer she would know how to style short hair. I almost cried.

i dont think-- cutting one's hair to embark on a healthy hair journey should be considered a phase or even talked about in the same light as a child who wants a cassie hair cut....or to color her hair blue,  pink and gold.

and yes she's in school....where she may very well be made fun of b/c of her hair choice..
but do we really want to to raise children-- that we teach-- fawk trying to improve yourself-- if others are going to make fun of your decision -- put that decision on a back burner...to appease the masses.??

eeewww. wont be my child.

Im all for the big chop. My mom did a number on me with an S-curl on top of a Just For Me. Thankfully I only lost a patch in the center seemingly from my ponytail being in the same spot daily. I just wished that after her big chop, they wouldve edged it up.

Obiviously, the girl got confidence and self-esteem in herself that it don't matter what the other kids are going to think at the playground.. Her parents should be commended for raising a child with such a mindset. She more confident than I ever was at that age.. So, kudos to her.. Nothing wrong with that child wanting to pratice healthy hair care at that age..

Kinda what i was thinking. Unnecessary IMO. There will be issues at shool. A ten year old shouldnt have to handle that kinda pressure if she doesnt have to. But if she can then kudos to her, i just dont think there wasnt another alternative. Just leave the hair and pamper it let it grow out. Meh,

I admire her courage. No way I coulda made the decision to rock a Ceasar at 10 years old. I woulda been holding on to my damaged tresses . I commend her for taking the steps that are gonna help her in the long run.

Her YouTube channel seems very age appropriate to me and you can tell her parents are very involved.

Much luck and success to this beautiful young lady who seems to have a beautiful spirit and courage outta this world.

No, not like Willow. This girl has a maturity level about her. I honestly changed my view about bc'ing little girls after watching this vid. Willow didn't make me feel like that. Willow makes me feel like she's a dumb little girl who just wants to look trendy and her parents are a couple of years away from having absolutely no control over her.

don't you think that there is something more wrong with children thinking it's okay to bully or make fun of a peer because they have short hair? Isn't that the real issue or am I missing something? Since when do we teach children to give into peer pressure and societal pressure? I thought we were supposed to be doing the opposite and teach them to be confident in themselves and take care of their bodies?

You're not missing anything, ITD. If more women had the confidence of this 10 year old, we wouldnt even be having this discussion. Im not even saying that to be shady, it's the cold hard truth. Shouldnt we be happy that someone so young was able to find confidence and self esteem that most of us didnt find until our adult lives? Confidence that a lot of us still havent found.

We cant be up on Black Hair Media, shouting about how we are not our hair, then side-eye a child who's truly about that life.

Confused
Seriously? Then if thats the case, I need to to cut off all my hair too. Just plains stupid. She's a child that still has to go to school.


Kinda what i was thinking. Unnecessary IMO. There will be issues at shool. A ten year old shouldnt have to handle that kinda pressure if she doesnt have to. But if she can then kudos to her, i just dont think there wasnt another alternative. Just leave the hair and pamper it let it grow out. Meh,

don't you think that there is something more wrong with children thinking it's okay to bully or make fun of a peer because they have short hair? Isn't that the real issue or am I missing something? Since when do we teach children to give into peer pressure and societal pressure? I thought we were supposed to be doing the opposite and teach them to be confident in themselves and take care of their bodies?

My sentiments exactly. If ya'll care more about kids picking at her than her worry about the health of her hair maybe ya'll need to learn to have a little more self esteem. Obviously she's mature enough to handle kids picking on her if she made the decision to cut her hair instead of caring what others would think of what she's doing. If people learn to teach their kids how to be strong and hold up we wouldn't have this fear of worrying about what others think in the first place.

You're not missing anything, ITD. If more women had the confidence of this 10 year old, we wouldnt even be having this discussion. Im not even saying that to be shady, it's the cold hard truth. Shouldnt we be happy that someone so young was able to find confidence and self esteem that most of us didnt find until our adult lives? Confidence that a lot of us still havent found.

We cant be up on Black Hair Media, shouting about how we are not our hair, then side-eye a child who's truly about that life. 
Lamp

I guess she should wait until she's an adult sittin' around with adult busted hair (like a lot of us BHM members didStern Smile) before she can makes a healthy change? I joke but...lol

Self-confidence & sh*t ftw!

MY mom cut of my damaged relaxed ends a lot as a child. 
Not BC but short enough. It was damaged, she told me it was the only way and that it would grow back. And it did. 

I love this young girl's spirit. She is so full of confidence, and I love that both of her parents are there in her life to support her through her changes. This is what happens when kids have their (good) parents in their lives. They raise mature, confident, and fresh spirited young people who grow up to be well balanced adults.
