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.
