What would you do if your daughter’s teacher made her hair?

Hi people. How are you doing? I am working on my next regimen posts so stay tuned. In the mean time, let’s just chat.

I was doing my daily dose of blog reading…I do this everyday….fitness, beauty and hair blogs are my faves…and I came across this story.  A teacher’s photo recently went viral on social media. A young girl came to school with tangled hair and lint balls and her teacher decided that she would comb the child’s hair and put it in plaits.

To top it all up, she posted the girl’s picture on Facebook with the following message:

“So one of my students came to school today with her hair full of knots, lint, and ridiculously tangled. It looked like it hadn’t been touched the entire holiday break…so my classroom became a salon. The photo on the left is before, and the right after. It just broke my heart so badly that I refused to let her leave school today the same way she came. When I finished she looked at herself and said “aww so pretty” … the beauty is that she is normally non-verbal. So now I’m crying lol. My day has been made!”

teacher makes girl hair


In my opinion, I don’t think that the teacher had any right to touch the girl’s hair without her mother’s consent. Even if her hair was not made. Yes. Even if her was not made. Secondly, she had no right to take the girl’s picture and put it on social media. It’s quite disrespectful and demeaning to the girl’s mom. No matter what. I’m a mom. You never know what was going on with her.

What do you think?

P/S: This evening at 9 pm Nigerian time, I will be joining LumoNaturals on Twitter to chat on ‘The Science of black hair’. Do join us: the hashtag to follow is #lumotweetchat. You can follow Sizzellestore on Twitter by clicking HERE.
