Christina Milian and Violet

Singer-turned-reality TV star Christina Milian responded to criticism about her 5-year-old daughter Violet Nash's excessive hair weave on Instagram.com.

Milian took Violet to meet her bestie Zendaya Coleman at the Inaugural World AIDS Day Benefit on Tuesday night.

Photos from the event shows Violet wearing a head full of heavy yarn-like hair extensions. The photos drew widespread criticism from concerned bloggers who worried that the heavy weave would snatch out the little girl's edges.

Christina laid all the fears to rest with a post on Instagram.

She said her daughter's hair wasn't twisted inside the extensions.

"it's another method used where they are tied into her corn rows," she wrote. "The hair isn't heavy. If you've ever grabbed a bag of Afri braiding hair, you know they are very light weight."

Read Christina's full explanation below:

For those of you more concerned with Violet's hair (understandably cause you just don't know) her hair isn't in the twists, it's another method used where they are tied into her corn rows. The hair isn't heavy. If you've ever grabbed a bag of afri braiding hair you know they are very light weight. But just trying new things. Violet likes it and it's not damaging. Xo

Now don't you feel bad for calling her a bad mother?

  • iWasteTime

    That chit looks heavy as hail!

  • SpillyNillie

    Mama Mili is obviously smoking dope. I had a head of braids once that had my neck hurting because they were so heavy. This hairstyle has taken over this poor child...

  • SpillyNillie

    Thank you! Cuz it is...

  • iWasteTime

    OMG!
    please googa:

    You see what they do to each other!! lordt!

  • Too Many Colors

    I never would call her or anyone else a bad mom.

    Except Draya.

    Who left lil Gilbert Arenas, Jr. in the house to eat dryer lint.

  • BubblingBrownSuga

    Very light until combined with other packs.

  • rose hill

    I believe what she is describing is crochet braids. They cornrow the hair and then use a crochet hook to attach. People do say that it is pretty light.

  • BubblingBrownSuga

    I read that it was fake.

  • Just Keya

    That is a very pretty little girl.

  • Too Many Colors

    And if her mama wanna pull her hair out then its her decision. Chit.

  • Just Keya

    *hollers* Leave me alone Dubb.

  • LibraGirlonly

    In other words mind ya business lol

  • Danielle Carmicle

    That's too much hair for a child that young. I understand
    experimenting, but that hairstyle isn't appropriate. I don't knock her
    for the method of braiding (or twisting), but 32 inch twist are a bit
    much for a child that's only 40 inches tall.

  • Just Keya

    People mad about when the kids hair not done(Blue Ivy) and now they are mad when it is. (this kid) Can't win for losing I guess.

  • AnonymousRose

    why Care?

  • nucynu25

    That is too much hair for a little girl. Those are crotchet braids, which means 9 times out of 10 they were sewn dwn.
    Tuah but yall be talking bout Lil sky blue being nappy headed .

  • Just Keya

    Snickers...she left who? lol. Is that really that little boy's dad? I always thought it was. ANd yes, she will NEVER be able to get a mom of the year award. Leaving your baby in the house with lunchables to go strip and be chasing men at the club. FOH.

  • Too Many Colors

    Get out my mine. I got my own lil girl hair problems over here.

  • SpillyNillie

    I was about to ask the same. That's his deddy?

  • iWasteTime

    was it?
    cause that dude took the steak

  • Just Keya

    Shoot me too. You see the hair on top of my crazy kids hair, and the almost nothing in the back. (it's growing though. ;))

  • iWasteTime

    true but the amount, length and twisting of strands ...

  • Just Keya

    I think so. But I don't know.

  • Too Many Colors

    That boy look JEST LIKE GILBERT. Its side by sides out there.

  • Too Many Colors

    Gil say that aint his son. They need Maury in they life

  • BubblingBrownSuga

    It said they were all in on it. But it was funny, especially when he said, "Pregnant, smoking, and pajama pants."

  • SummerBaby

    Cute lil girl.

  • YOUR man chose BSweet #ohwell

    I thought that was a Halloween costume.

  • SpillyNillie

    Me tooooo!!!

  • Just Keya

    And if that is his son, both Gilbert and Draya AINT SHYT. This poor boy been walking around without a dad and a stripper/hoe ass momma for YEARS. Yall KNEW Gilbert was the dad, and still just had him out here. Sad.

  • Just Keya

    Gil paid Draya to say it's not his. But it is. They do need Maury!!!!!

  • SummerBaby

    This actually reminds me of that gravi of that baby with the lace front ?

  • GuestSTAR

    Those braids look heavy as he11.

  • SpillyNillie

    Gilbert wouldn't have claimed him...you know how that goes...

  • Just Keya

    Nope. Especially because of who the momma was.

  • MissHarlem

    I still wouldn't call her a bad mom. Not with that young mentality and a mom that look like she left Draya her own self a time or two. Present she is doing it. That's old chit

  • YOUR man chose BSweet #ohwell

    Its a bit much for a 5 year old to me but it ain't my 5 year old

  • Too Many Colors

    Chile Gilbert dont care about the kids he actually CLAIM. Put they asses right on outside whenever he puts Laura out. Remind of Hustle and Flow when DeeJay put Paula Jai Parker AND her damn baby outside. Like "let me help you out with a bye bye."

  • Afiya

    What in concrete is in that childs head? That shyt looks a hot damm mess, and they got the nerve to profiling proudly. #stupidparentsdostupidshyt

  • MissHarlem

    Too long for my taste in a child however she ain't come out my pussc so have at it ?

  • SpillyNillie

    His ass always putting somebody outside...like he put poor Jamal in the trash can...

  • Just Keya

    Uhhhh. DO I think Gilbert don't care about the other kids? I think he does, but he trippin putting the kids out WITH the momma. But I've been saying Laura could NOT live no where that I pay for. F that. And when DeeJay put her and that crying baby out and Cookie was all big belly and crying, I was so sad. ANd I kind of laughed. Like sir, if you don't get that baby off that damn step.

  • Auditor

    Exactly

  • Just Keya

    *goes looking for Whoop that Trick on playlist*

  • Kaci

    It still looks horrid and inappropriate for a 5yo but to each his own...

  • Auditor

    Is that the dream's Chile?

  • SummerBaby

    Yes

  • Too Many Colors

    I TOLD yall I find comedy in situations not supposed to be funny. My ex husband was so mad at me I giggled at that part in the movies. Everyone else was like "oh no" and I giggled. He elbowed the shat outta me.

  • MotherOfDragons, GetOffMyENuts

    Well...if Gil paid then why didn't she have enough money for a babysitter for him when she was out bussin it wide open? Wait...I forgot who I was talking about. The same man that stayed throwing Laura and their kids out with no $. She picked the wrong dude to get pregnant by, something about him is heartless.

  • Monday

    The technique is called CROCHET BRAID. I do it. The hair has to be cornrowed which can still be damaging to the edges if not taken care properly.

    The hair is light but her edges can still be ripped off especially at this age.

    Look on youtube. Ladies are ditching the 1k $$malaysian weave hair for 5$ a pack freetress and modell modell hair

    Hey Christina!! (Since we know she reads us) ?

  • _perfectly__incomplete__

    Each to their own I guess, my opinion is that children don't need to do anything to they're hair that isn't necessary, this is simply for a fashion reason so not necessary, don't risk damaging your hair until you can understand the effects

  • nucynu25

    Lol

  • Auditor

    Lol my own hair issues chit

  • Just Keya

    That was a mess. hahahaha

  • Auditor

    I saw that sh*t!

  • Auditor

    Oh ok

  • nucynu25

    Right, I can understand throwing the woman out but damn your kids too .

  • Just Keya

    Yeah, I am not here for throwing the kids out. smdh. The both of them are retarded if you ask me.

  • Too Many Colors

    We tryna train Dub10 almost 11 to start tryna do something with her own hair. She going to middle school next year. Its time. Cause her sister hardly be here (she used to help and comb her sister hair for me) and after 30 years of doing lil girl hair (my little sister, my niece, then came Dub20..) At 38, I am muthafawkin TIED.

  • SunnyChi

    It still looks heavy! That style is not even age appropriate.

    I wonder if the dream had anything to say about this..

  • Just Keya

    Uhh miss? NO! DO her hair. Don't nobody care that you tired. I'm about to send you one more head to do...maybe. lmao

  • nucynu25

    Both retarded. Gloria just seems like she is wiling to put with anything for the right price. She just seems so simple .

  • MissLuv

    Now that is just too damn much

  • PettyEyezPrime

    So we weaving at 5? Cool. Not my kid. Dats her bebe. Explore baby Nash and ex Mrs.
    Nash!

  • Too Many Colors

    Just the simple stuff she need to know how to do. On like Saturday we going out. Hell can you at least do a snatch back ponytail? Can you moisturize dolo? Help me help YOU lil mama.

  • SummerBaby

    That's about the age I let my girls start. I still washed & occasionally flat ironed. My girls have always been natural. It took me going natural for them to truly appreciate their hair.

  • Monday

    I never saw The Dream with his daughter....NOT one pic!!

    What happened with his domestic case?? Or was it assault??

    Hair is light for grown up crochet braid, but it is not made for kids.. T
    She should use the kids crochet hair..

  • PettyEyezPrime

    This made me think of the baby being dragged on the wedding dress ?? Dem they kids!

  • Too Many Colors

    Dub20 got her own first perm. She was 16. If you can pay to upkeep your own chemicals you are more than welcome to do so. Dub10 gonna be bald headed if she ever try to put some chems in her hair. She need to stick to the rivers and lakes that she is used to. A damn flat iron.

  • nucynu25

    I have in braids right now. They're box braids & my head feel like it gained aleast 3 pds so I know that shit heavy on shawty head.

  • PettyEyezPrime

    Hope she got Brandy's number to see if it can be remedied when she's a teen and rebelling and mad at her momma for lack of edges.

  • nucynu25

    The other day, alittle girl abt 6 came to my job with a whole sew in. I just shook my head.

  • harley_quinn2.0

    It looks heavy af. Let me hush ain't my child. Let me know what the Dream think.

  • Just Keya

    Leading by example. Love it!

  • Just Keya

    Very

  • Auditor

    I learned...took me 23 years! Just keep it short! Got a frohawk right now and even that is too long right now lol.

  • Too Many Colors

    Well Brandy should be mad at Sonia for passing that edge-less gene down. Brandy was born like that. I am convinced on Thea that up under that mushroom cut she didnt have edges eem then. Born with a Peabo Bryson hairline.

  • Just Keya

    OMG DEAD. I can not.

  • i troll it like i see it

    Crochet braids?

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    I was quite happy that my first was bald until she was almost 1-1/2 and even then it was peach fuzz for another 6 months. Hell, I pay people to do my hair for a reason.

  • MotherOfDragons, GetOffMyENuts

    Christina...if you ARE reading... Hey girl! How are you? Did Weezie stop calling yet? Those pics with Dhea and that Sara Vivan chick speaking on the situation must have been hurtful. I'm hoping you are really over it because honestly, Wayne looks like a walking disease. I did say that Violet had a lot of hair in her head but hey, that's your decision to make. I wanted to know if maybe someone stepped on her foot or she fell, because her white tights were ripped and dirty. I used to like that Dip It Low song. Call Nick Cannon, maybe y'all can rekindle your romance. That would be good look for you. Leave these producers and rappers alone, it's NEVER going to work with them and has done nothing to further your career.

  • Just Keya

    Amen. You see Ju on IG and that hair. smh.

  • harley_quinn2.0

    Yep. I don't know why she went into that long explanation.

  • Just Keya

    I hate/love you for this. ANd WHY did I go to look to see if the child's tights were dirty. OMG

  • ThePearl

    Hey, All! WT entire F?????? Fukk her edges...her poor lil neck is gon' be leanin' to one side -- HARD! Stupid Stupid Stupid (looking and actually).

  • iWasteTime

    Well she can't call Countess Vaughn for chit.

  • SummerBaby

    My girls had hair like tweety bird forever! When their hair finally grew one day they were playing w/my son & he cut one of their ponytails off. My baby came walking in the room w/her braided ponytail in her hand still attached to the barrette ???

  • Too Many Colors

    If she need to know how to heal her hairline fulla pus and infection smelling like an earring back... from wig glue from lacefronts. Call Countess.

  • Auditor

  • Too Many Colors

    On Soul Train Awards I was thinking why you aint grow you no edges while you been sitting up in that damn room you singing about Bran?

  • Auditor

    That was messed up lol

  • harley_quinn2.0

    My mom was tied too. She took me to the salon the summer before 5th grade for that relaxer ?.

  • Too Many Colors

    It was messed up for Countess to say she aint have no forehead meat bc of that. I would have never told nobody that.

  • Monday

    Strange enough she invited Zendaya to meet Violet while wearing a hairstyle she knows people would be coming for her...

    Since Blu Ivy it seems other uses their daughter for media relevancies... For the next week we'll hear about it from Christina Millian to get more interviews. Then Youtubers will use the same style on their kids or themselves, the Asians will switch their beauty supply product for crochet hair... See how we are getting used to spend money in this hair business???

  • PettyEyezPrime

    I tell everybody DEM HER/HIM/THEY kids! You better be blind ? to all THEY foolishness. Clearly nobody tells Stevie about his lack of edges and he's holding on to like 4 dreads in the back so...maybe it's fetch.

My mother in law was saying its gonna grow. Just wait. I was like WHEN lady? WHEN? She was 3 and it took off growing, Thought I was gonna have to send her to preschool bald headed. I was so so worried Jesus.

    Yea, the bag is light until you've added 5 or 6 to your head. That crap is heavy. I don't think the issue is how much damage is being done to her hair. The issue is, it looks ridiculously stupid and ratchet. Furthermore, that's too much hair on a child head at that age dummy. Who does this?

    Yes Violet will like them because she is a child... When Violets edges are snatched out by 10 and she has thin hair then she will be mad at her mommy. Heavy braids, tight braids, and perms on young kids is only to make it convenient for parents that can't figure out or don't have time to do their children's hair.
