A new video shows the sad chronology of a little girl’s journey from healthy natural hair to a kiddie perm gone wrong, and the emotional return as the child with the help of her hair stylist attempts to grow her hair again.
The video is shown against Corrine Bailey Rae’s “Like A Star,” so it’s easy to become stirred by varied feelings of shock, disappoint, and, ultimately, anger. In the beginning, the video shows the child’s hair healthy, natural, and growing until suddenly the Easter when the child’s mother decided to relaxed her hair.
We witness the tragic effects of the young child’s premature scalp and coils undergo what was completely unnecessary and obviously traumatic for the child. The stylist says the little girl refused to let her cut off the damaged ends of her strands asking, “When will my hair grow back?” So sad.
Have a look for yourself.
