Angelina Jolie is catching heat for her choice in hairstyles for 6-year-old daughter, Zahara. The little girl recently debuted a head full of weave at a family outing. The hair extensions normally take hours to braid and the procedure can be painful, especially if the child is tender headed.
“If Angelina wants Zahara to be in touch with her roots and have her hair braided then she can do that with the child’s own hair and she doesn’t need to add extensions,” celebrity groomer DaRico Jackson told RadarOnline.com.
“She is far too young for that and Angelina is creating insecurity in the little girl that what she has is not good enough.
“Growing up with siblings who have long flowing hair, Zahara may grow to feel that her own natural hair is not pretty enough, and that without the fake hair she is not beautiful. She should be made to embrace who she is.”
Jackson added: “There are many cute styles that Zahara can have without adding fake hair at such a tender age.”
I agree, but many women in the black community put weave extensions in their daughter’s hair. It’s a matter of convenience for women who don’t have the time or money to take better care of their children’s hair.
