teachers note

Some people are too ignorant for words. A teacher's note asking a mother to be considerate of other children has somehow been turned into an attack on black culture.

It all started when a Chicago teacher sent a note home with a student asking the child's mom to go lightly on the coconut oil she put in her daughter's hair because the smell was disturbing the other students.

The mother, Tionna Norris, posted the teacher's note on her Facebook page.

The note was not inappropriate or rude. The teacher wrote:

"I understand the necessary of coconut oil on Amia’s hair, but please do not use as much. The children were complaining that her hair “stinks.” If you have to apply this daily — please do so lightly, so the kids don’t tease her. Thank you for understanding.”

Like a typical angry black woman, Norris took offense to the note. She claims she applies a copious amount of the loud-smelling grease to Amia's hair to "moisturize" and "control breakage".

But anyone with common sense knows that copious amounts of hair grease only attracts dirt which adds to the breakage problem by drying out the hair.

You moisturize hair from the inside by drinking lots of water.

Norris arrogantly promised to apply "the same amount of coconut oil" to Amia's hair, adding that the teacher was "gone feel that black girl magic" and she signed her note, "Sincerely, unapologetically black mom. P.s. Coconut oil has no stinky smell.”

Norris can't even admit that coconut oil hair grease has a sweet pungent odor.

Don't be surprised if the school suspends Amia over her mother's ignorance.

Do you think Tionna Norris was wrong?

    Oh Lordt.

  • Soda

    But when the head lice infection hits the school, as it usually does, the girl with coconut oiled hair will be infestation-free.

  • reddfoxxy16

    Exactly, smh...

  • reddfoxxy16

    Unbelievable....

  • SummerBaby

    I'm confused is she using coconut oil or hair grease that claims to have coconut oil in it? This mother had every right to defend her baby. The teacher should be teaching kids not to bully others.

  • Peter Piper ATL

    Oh..I'm first? Cool. Well, I like coconut oil and I've used it from time to time. I think it has a pleasant, fresh smell. I disagree with this teacher. And frankly, I'm more concerned with the fact that this woman is teaching children and yet take a look at this note. "I understand the necessary?!"

    And, "So the kid's don't tease her"? WTF? This teacher needs a serious refresher in language courses.

    I say let the kid's hair stink and fire the teacher for being an idiot.

  • SummerBaby

    Tionna Norris the mother was NOT wrong.

  • Buttercup

    I understand the necessary? Ma'am, you don't clearly understand English, but you call yourself a teacher.

    What smell? I use coconut oil daily. The only thing people say about how I smell is that I smell like cookies.

  • Kbellaluvvs

    But do we complain when some of them come in wet smelling like....

  • http://yeuphonic.com @yeuphonic

    “I understand the necessary of coconut oil on Amia’s hair" ?

  • shaylynnn

    A phone call would've been the better option. If the teacher is saying kids are teasing your daughter because of the coconut oil, why wouldn't you use less? Be smarter folks. Teasing & being mistreated can easily lead to depression. Pls protect your babies.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Coconut oil has nothing to do with it. Lice prefer to lay their eggs in straight, non-kinky, Caucasian hair.

  • hotntot95

    Since when does coconut oil smell bad Carol???

    I'll wait..

  • Bossy704

    That Black women need excessive oil on their hair to be healthy is a myth. Daily "greasing" seems a bit dated. What about a good leave in and light oil once or twice a week? This request is no different than if the child wore excessive perfume. This is also going to clog her pores and give her acne as she gets older.

  • Sexy CJ
  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    I was just thinking that Butter lmao I use it daily as well *feeling all so silky smooth*

  • SummerBaby

    I disagree. What works for some may not work for others. The mom is using what works for her kid.

  • B.Sweet has e-white privilege

    Some people are too ignorant for words.

  • MissHarlem

    Facepalm. I don't have the time nor energy for this today.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Exactly. The angry mother had to find something to complain about.

  • SummerBaby

    I use it daily too!

  • http://yeuphonic.com @yeuphonic

    "No hair is immune to head lice. There is a misconception that African American hair, because it is coarse, is resistant to head lice. Lice do not care whether hair is smooth or coarse, thin or thick. Lice affix themselves to a strand of hair as a way to get up to the scalp to access their food supply: human blood." From licedoctors com

  • SaharabutnotKdry

    The necessiry? You can't tell me nothing !
    Putting too much oil is not good for the hair but her child , her choice .
    The teacher should teach the kids not to bully and not the other way around .

  • SummerBaby

    Wait whet?!

  • Sucker Free

    Yes and no. Sounds like a hygiene issue, not a product issue. I wouldn't have been offended...I would have been educational.

    coconut oil does not smell offensive to me or anyone I know. I use it on my hair and body daily like lotion.

  • ShelbyMoore

    Bish whet! That hoe wouldn't even have a job when I was done with her. Coconut oil doesn't even smell bad. But it's ok for the yt kids to talk around with lice crawling out their heads and dropping on people's desks behind them. They are ok with the yt people walking around smelling like wet dog, but they have a problem with Coconut Oil? Bish GTFOH

  • Low E. TUH!

    FYI: This is not an Open Post.

    I HAVE NO SENTIMENTS ON THE MATTER...BUT COCONUT OIL DOESN'T STINK!

  • stav

    I would like to know what kid says that coconut oil stinks? And why is someone that close to her smelling her hair? We all know coconut oil is a very aromatic scent, not an odor. This teacher needs to be concerned with teaching , and not displaying her stupidity.

  • Kbellaluvvs

    I wouldn't know..maybe you can tell me?

  • Unapologetically Black

    True coconut oil doesn't have a smell. It's that cheap beauty supply store grease that does.

  • Yoni

    Carol better take her yt mayonnaise and egg product smellin ass on some damn where.

  • http://yeuphonic.com @yeuphonic

    Truly. I have more issue with the letter than I do the content.

  • MissHarlem

    Not according to daquan

  • SummerBaby

    We've been warned ?

  • SaharabutnotKdry

    Mom should switch to organic coconut oil .

  • Soda

    Another article said the daughter was not being teased or mistreated. The teacher was the one with a problem. Maybe they don't have coconut oil in Russia, which is where she's from.

  • RespectSelf

    I wonder if this teacher is young because it seems like the best thing would be to talk to the students about teasing other kids. However, I do look at it like she was trying to prevent her daughter from being teased by the other kids.

    She must be packing a lot of grease (not coconut oil) in her hair if the kids are talking about it...

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Coconut oil smells sweet when you use it lightly. Everyone knows that any hair oil/grease stinks when you use too much of it.

  • ShelbyMoore

    Right! That shat is offensive to a lot of us out here...are we telling them to go bathe?

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    It does if you use too much of it.

  • Str8tUpMenace

    SMDH.....Since when does coconut OIL stink????

    And I'll be ignorant, too. Wonder if the teacher ever wrote notes home to the parents of the kids that smell like wet dog or lunch meat. I'll wait....

  • hotntot95

    Or when white hoes walk around outside going to gas stations with bare feet and then jump in the bed

  • Soda

    The Russian teacher wrote it.

  • SaharabutnotKdry

    That explains a lot!

  • Yoni

    What about the flight attendant that jeopardized a man's life because she didn't think this BLACK WOMAN was an actual doctor.

    Lil Miss Flight Attendant would be a cashier at the Popeyes in terminal B by the time I get done. And the airline would NOT be called Delta.....it would be YoniAir. #whutdemskymilesdo

  • stav

    I have never heard of one black child having lice, I need proof, just because you say it doesn't make it the truth!

  • Violet Rose

    I agree a phone call would have been more professional. I would have asked the mother to come in to the school and speak with her directly. I would have had witnesses and two security guards because you know single black mamas have a lot of aggression and anger at the world.

  • Bossy704

    This is what I was thinking. She is likely using something with coconut oil "in it" and a lot of perfume.

  • Incog-knee-gress

    I use coconut oil every day. I done pure got my dude using it lmao. And bc he uses it now, I done tricked him into buying it lol. It has NO smell. Or else the dudes up at his job woulda BEEN joaned his ass to hell and back. They are rougher than any group of kids.

  • Yoni

    OFF and hairspray.

  • Kbellaluvvs

    just white tears...nothing to see lol

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Yes, clawd! A woman hugged me once and the odor from her sweaty, months old hair weave just about knocked me out. ?

  • SummerBaby

    So I see you just gonna keep talking ignorant.

  • Look@m3

    TELL HER. I thought the same thing until my coworker was like she bought some hair form an indian shop...wore it for a coupe of weeks. Went to get her sew in washed and the hair stylist was like boo you got lice. I NEVER thought Black girls could get that but SHAWTTYYYY.....it will nest in the kinks don't get it twisted.

  • http://yeuphonic.com @yeuphonic

    She teaches in America.

  • Teresa Uriel

    exactly.....but then when you tell these same type of angry mothers ( like aka lovezoe & incog ) that white people are the devil, they do a 360 degree and cuss you out

  • Renee26

    No mother is exactly right...tell those kids complaining to stay out her baby's personal space. From the picture that child's hair is clean....and I agree that coconut oil doesn't stink

  • Violet Rose

    Or when black women are not sure if the baby is Jerome's or Pookie's.

  • Str8tUpMenace

    And instead of teaching the kids about bullying others, you send a note home to the parent of the child about "using too much oil?"

    Bish bye

  • Look@m3

    I saw it.....Black WOMAN ...its possible. In fact if you go on youtube there area a few black girls who got it from the tracks the purchased over seas

  • https://www.etsy.com/shop/AMarieNaturals Lovezoe

    I think Tionna was wrong in only the fact she didn't knock fire from that teacher. Coconut oil does wonders for your hair. Let someone talk about what I do with MY child hair. How about you teach kids not to pick on folks hair instead of sending me a note about me and mine.

  • Yoni

    Not my Black and Bossie/Kalawentz oil. Smells like candy. Been using it for 21 years. Getchu some.

  • Renee26

    Because it lacks moisture though

  • http://yeuphonic.com @yeuphonic

    It's uncommon because our hair is often greased making it harder for the parasites to use the strands to reach the scalp

  • SummerBaby

    This dayum post. ?

  • Melissaisasnob

    My daughter had a friend that needed to be let go of because that girl smelled too bad. She had braids to her butt and there was some type of smell coming off her hair. If I had to take them somewhere in the car I would almost die from the smell. The same throughout the house. As soon as she left the smell left with her.

  • ShelbyMoore

    I remember all the white kids being pulled out of class. I've yet to see a black child get pulled out of class for lice. As a matter of fact, they even stopped wasting their time checking black kids for lice and only went after the white ones.

  • Renee26

    Ok!!! This is probably one of those charter schools with rules against big hair and beaded hairstyles because they're a distraction

  • B.Sweet has e-white privilege

    You're back. YAYAY.

  • Xomayca ??

    Wrong! That is a myth. My daughter caught lice twice and she has 3C texture hair. We share brushes daily and I did not get it. Know why? Because I use plenty oils and butters in my hair (and not my daughters). The lice cant grip hair that is slippery or oily. Coconut oil is bae

  • hotntot95

    Or when white hoes don't use or even know what a wash cloth is

  • Yoni

    She's single? Where did it say that at?

  • Soda

    How would they know? They get on kinky hair and say, "Oh, no! This kind has too many turns & twists, too much work for me!"

  • https://www.etsy.com/shop/AMarieNaturals Lovezoe

    That's like saying teach women not to be victims instead of teaching boys not to rape. So I'm not supposed to groom my child because someone hating.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Are licedoctors selling something? If so, you can't trust their word. "Due to hair textures and styles, It may be harder to contract lice in afro Caribbean hair".

  • Str8tUpMenace

    I got my boo using it on his dreads. His punk ass stays hijacking my products.

  • MissHarlem

    Akin to those warnings before you watch a movie that we all obey so diligently. Ok ?

  • ShelbyMoore

    She got it because she was using infected hair. How are the white kids getting it though?

  • Renee26

    Yes! I thought it was a hoax because of the misspelling and the TYPED note

  • ShelbyMoore

    Rotten eggs? Wet dogs?

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    Gd morning! I'm thinking I won't comment bc I have no kids yet...

  • stav

    So that means it was in the straight hair that was purchased, they did not get lice in their own hair. Read what's being stated , that's a big difference , if bugs where in straight hair that was purchased!

  • Melissaisasnob

    In good schools, kids get sent home for lice and cannot return until the nurse checks them and ok's their return. Now, I don't think anything is done about the wet dog smell though.

  • Keya #AndYouWillDeal

    Like a typical angry black woman, Norris took offense to the note.

    Nope. I sure don't think the momma was wrong.

  • Torae

    I had to stop using coconut oil because for some reason it would make my hair smell like baby vomit no matter how clean my hair was. Everytime I used the oil it would have the same smell...

  • Melissaisasnob

    Not an open post. :)

  • MsSincerity

    I wonder if the mother is lying....I say that because, coconut oil does not stink, the smell is very light.... and teachers usually use the term Mrs/Ms.... she just flat out called the mother by her first name.

    These comments got me heated ?

  • Fendi aka Erin Blockabitch

    When you make personal attacks against Black women and other people's children, all posts are "open."

    You continue to show disrespect for Black women, yet you are supposed to be a Black woman. You show disrespect for Black children, of which you were once a Black child.

    I'm not sure who royally fucked you up to the extent that you hate Black skin, hair, features, culture, etc., but I pray you raise enough funds to get that exorcism you so truly need.

    What type of mother fails to defend and protect their child from unwarranted negative attention? ?

  • Str8tUpMenace

    And I'm pretty sure the kids in the class weren't saying a damn thing about that baby's hair. This is all from the teacher, given the fact that teachers usually lean over students to help with school work or other things. That bish tried to use kids bullying as a damn excuse.

    Heat kills lice. The reason why Black hair isn't typically subject to lice is thanks to a good old fashioned blow dryer and/or pressing comb.

  • http://yeuphonic.com @yeuphonic

    No selling. Just experts who also conclude that the round shape follicles in white people hair is easier for lice to grip than the oval shaped hair of Africans, however no one is immune just less likely to contract.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Exactly. I once dated a Caucasian woman who washed her hair daily. She said the natural oil from her scalp made her hair dirty. She couldn't understand why black women apply more oil to our hair.

    I told her I never put grease in my hair. When I leave the hair salon I drink plenty of water to maintain the moisture in my hair from the inside. Black people don't drink enough water. That's why we have dry hair.

  • i troll it like i see it

    Why is she over moisturizing to begin with? Well at least it's not Blue Magic grease, or Royal Crown like my mom used on us...that chit actually does reek and we went to the white school too and I was always a little embarrassed over the smell, etc. People have a lot more option these days, why can't she switch it up or use less? Sounds like the teacher is trying to help.

  • Candy Creekmore

    Everyone doesn't enjoy that smell though, its no different from people who wear too much perfume. Everything IS NOT ABOUT RACE .Whats CRAZY IS Black People say some of the MOST RACIST things,then get indignant when they find others do the same..?

  • Lurk_Mode_Off

    Yeah. The mom was out of line without a doubt. Obviously she isn't thinking about the welfare of her child, being teased by other kids. She is more concerned about being ignorant and trying to make a moot point. That is damaging.

    The note was not inappropriate or rude.
    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    May not have been inappropriate or rude but it was definitely grammatically incorrect. Instead of writing the mother of the child being teased, perhaps her stupid, (barely) functionally illiterate azz should have sent notes home to the children teasing the child. What type of adult sees children picking on a child, and decides to further ridicule the child by insinuating that their properly groomed hair is the problem. Lord, this is one of the many reasons I don't have any kids.

  • Xomayca ??

    This is true for relaxed hair. But as a natural you can get it if you dont use heat and your hair isnt oily or greasy

  • stav

  • Torae

    Coconut oil doesnt work for me..but it's really a great moisturizer for my daughters curly hair. Its keeps the curls from tangling and it makes it easier for me to comb their hair. I dont use it every day.

  • LibraGirlonly

    Sandra you obviously don't know anything about black hair care. Our hair needs moisture everyday. The parent did exactly what she should have done and the nerve of this white woman trying to tell a black mother how to care for her own daughters hair. They don't want us to be ourselves. White folks would prefer if we looked at the world through European eyes but I'm a black woman with African DNA so I look at the world through African eyes. MY BLACK IS BEAUTIFUL!!!!!

  • hi-liter

    Coconut oil stimulates hair growth getting deep into its follicles. Coconut oil promotes the scalp health fighting against such problems as insect bites, lice and dandruff. Coconut oil adds luster, shine and softness to the hair. Coconut oil prevents hair breakage and split ends, contributing to hair length. Aug 1, 2016

    Thank you. And that white man is merely using homegirl's likeness as a means of attracting readers. That's what ultimately happens to all of the good Black blogs - they're shut down or bought out.

  • Soda

    The mother shared this with her FB friends, what became of it after that was not her doing. There was an article written about the situation and if the mother wanted to make a big deal out of it she would have contributed a comment, which she did not. She simply stated the facts her FB page that she talked to the school, found there was no issue, and she moved on.

    They found out it wasn't the children teasing her it was the teacher that had the issue. I think the bish was jealous of the little girl because she didn't look unkempt she looks like her parents take good care of her. These white teachers don't view our children the same as they do the white kids. Not all white teachers but a lot of them do feel that way.

    Got into a fight on the playgorund one day and the dirt clumps and leaves and shyt took forever to wash out when I got home.

    Hated that shyt!

    FURTHERMORE (in my Low E font) how do you know that the child's hair is over moisturized?! Because the retarded azz teacher said so? Let me get back to this boring azz CLE...

  • DroneRivers

    "Do you think Tionna Norris was wrong?"
    -----------
    Nope! If that's what she uses in her hair, applying less isn't going to change anything. Coconut oil is not a loud-smelling "hair grease". It's a natural oil with a subtle smell and it's good for hair skin and even in cooking. Not sure if the kids are smelling something else or just being bullies. But I see nothing wrong with the mother digging her heels in.
    And I agree that hydration helps, but you need to apply moisturizer to your hair as well. Drinking water is not enough.

    The issue is not whether other races like the things we find important. The issue is that other cultures are not forced to abandon their culture in order to appease and placate the dominant culture. The issue is that your Mexican friend has a right to heat up their meal, just as much as Becky has the right to heat up her dry stove top mac and cheese.

  • Torae

    It's how it was said. Would I write a note to an Indian and tell them to use Tide and extra sheets of gain fabric softner when they wash their clothes so they dont smell like spices. No that would be rude...

  • MadameMixi

    Not because you haven't heard of it makes it less true. We experienced it in my family 1st hand when my younger sister got a head lice infection in elementary school and there is nothing straight about her hair - it's very kinky.

  • Elle

    If the teacher sent me that note home...I would lay off the coconut oil. I don't want my baby being teased because of it. (Although I know it will always be something else she could be teased for..) But this is too much, the teacher said "I understand it is necessary," nobody was trying to slam our culture, heritage, lifestyle...Geesh..

    The write up is a good starting point ?

  • Blaque Mahogany

    If she wrote a note home that said, your child's curly hair is causing her to be teased, would you style it differently? If she said that your child's skin is causing her to be picked on, would you bleach her skin? If she said that your child's clothing was too urban and causing the kids to pick on her, would you go out and buy clothes that were more acceptable to that classroom?

    If so, you are in fact telling your child that she IS the issue. That she should change herself to accommodate those around her. You are note teaching your child to love herself and be comfortable being her. She will always attempt to conform to whatever and whoever. In relationships with men, friends, etc. Terrible way to live, if you ask me.

    Are you crazy? The teacher should be stopping the teasing rather than write the Mother such a stuoid note. What if an indigent child was unable to bathe frequently and was aromatic? When I was in school a similar thing happened. The teacher noticed students mocking this underprivileged girl who had a certain odor. The teacher sent the girl to the bathroom to wet a rag to ostensibly clean the chalkboard. When the girl was out of earshot, the teacher, Mrs Inman took the class to task for the behavior of some. It was a private school and clearly this girl's parents spent all they had to pay the tuition so she would get a good education. THAT is the way to handle the issue so all involved parties win.

  • IAmLegend

    There was nothing offensive about this note. In fact, it shows that the teacher was very tactful in the way that she wrote it and out of concern for the child. Furthermore, Coconut oil does have a funny smell if you use too much of it and I know because I used to use it. It gets really bad when its hot in the room and you start to sweat.

    I have recently learned that black people should not use coconut oil on the hair because it is too heavy on the hair and scalp and creates blockage and buildup where new hair tries to grow. Black people should use water based hair oils that allows the hair to breathe and is easy to wash out without having to use harsh chemicals. Water based hair oils are also better for moisture.

    Coconut oil does not stink. Worry about your own culture and let black people worry about theirs. Most white people are very ignorant to other cultures and feel that everyone else should adopt their practices but the fact of the matter is whites have been stealing black culture and teaching for centuries but will act like it's theirs and try to hide it from the original owners.

They come here and create communities that reinforce their values. They dont combat Becky by calling her Becky and criticizing her poor grammar. They recognize The teacher's ignorance to their culture and overall lack of education; They then build their OWN schools WITHIN their community to teach their Children THEIR VALUES. We are allowing our children to be educated by people who do not understand them.Why are we shocked by their actions in 2016.This isnt New. They tell us everday because right now they can. We as a race do not have our own system of control.we are peons in this game. We could be Giants.

    It probably stinks when bitches who haven't washed use it. When you don't use warm water, soap AND a wash cloth, I would imagine you'd stink. Then, to add heavy oils to your skin on top of improperly washed skin, especially when someone perspires excessively, would be a nightmare. I am certain that's not the case with this precious baby, but rather her funky borscht eating teacher.

  • ImNotThatGrl

    Raw coconut oil does stink after a day or two. It smells like something spoiled. But I do think the teacher could have stated the problem and let the mom come up with the solution. "The children are teasing your daughter regarding her hair. Please call me to discuss this further" #NeverInWriting

  • Fendi aka Erin Blockabitch

    I was asked not to wear perfume at a firm because one bitch was allergic to scents. Tom Ford Black Orchid was my go-to scent at the time.

    When you're getting dressed and spraying your perfume, you're thinking about yourself, not the cave bitch who has allergies.

    I'm allergic to funk. I don't recall white co-workers washing their asses properly as not to offend me.

  • Li

    I'm still appalled today in the 21st century at how black women damage their hair and their child's. And I know what the teacher means about the smell. Maybe the mother can't smell it, but others can smell it. Maybe they should call the mother into the office and the principal and the teacher talk to her.
    There are indeed some ignant black women as this mom is.
    I work in a school and black women (students) have gone to the extreme with their hair. I believe they all go to some hair fashion shows, and come back with rainbow colored weaves. And some of the braiding is so tight I fear for their scalp.
    Ladies -- please let your hair breath. Go natural. Straighten it (not perm). It pains me to see some of these extreme hair styles and then years later, see all the hair fall out.
    Think: Stevie Wonder and what he's done to his hair. He's practically bald.

  • BRuhman_Vista

    Doofus? What "traction" is needed here to resolve a grade school classroom issue? I don't get the sense that the teacher was being malicious. It sounds like she was attempting to resolve the matter without bringing undue attention and embarrassment to the child. The rational thing would be to attempt resolving the issue between the teacher and the parent, FIRST. That is not to say there is NEVER a time to make such matters public. It just seems that today folks are too quick to take offense to something and immediately broadcast that offense to the whole world.

  • Candy Creekmore

    No I send my child to the white school across town. In my community its the best option public school wise.Is it ideal no, I constantly reinforce to her she has to be bigger and better than her white counterparts because unfortunately thats the way of the world. Look at you trying to deminsh me by mocking a respectable career. Is THIS black unity?, Im also a Nursing student. WHILE YOU'RE making excuses make a way.

  • Li

    It's the smell. It's repugnant. Mom should change the moisturizer.

  • OrchidJones-VidaLocaVirgo

    In my days of doing hair, what the Anglo Saxon won't understand or never understand is the way our hair works wanting to touch it and chit and why we DON'T wash it every day as they do when they take their showers.

    It's not that we are dirty or stinky as they think, but it is a lot of damn work #1. Washing our hair strips our natural oils and moisture, (so I cannot see even doing that daily unless we are extremely mixed with another race diluting our African heritage which results in tresses to be softer and better holding of oils even after extreme washing...)

    The only way we can grow which has been a long myth is that we cant, is moisture. So people come up with all kinds of schemes for growth. Funny as it sounds, my hair grows when i am just still and don't wash it.

    I rarely use coconut oil on hair, but on my skin but with moderation because it tends to be messy and out of control and half the time non absorbent. I use Shea butter, and that is with a perm because I had so much I couldn't control it. Now with the new natural Phenom, people have to learn the hard way of not over doing it. It is suggested light moderation of anything and braids or protective styles for even the children. Kids will be kids, but hell teachers no better.

  • free

    sooooo i guess the kid will keep on getting teased. carry on.

  • LibraGirlonly

  • EScrazy

    Coconut oil has no smell at all...if it does its really faint.Kids are cruel sometimes. I applaud the teacher for being discreet and giving a note but sometimes being black with thick hair is a problem. My fiance is having a hard time now trying different oilstyles for her hair. And water doesn't work all the time for dry scalp, my mom's beautician let her know her diet is lacking important vitamins because all we drink is water and cranberry juice no sodas

  • i troll it like i see it

    Russian teacher, English is her second language perhaps? Maybe this all got lost in translation. And, she also may not be aware of how hyper sensitive we are here when it comes to race, "don't talk about anybody's hair, hair products, hair texture," etc....I'm just trying to give he benefit of the doubt to a woman who may have unknowingly caused offense. And I don't like coconut oil either.

  • 100milesperhour

    I read whites are prone to head lice b/c they're hair is naturally oily, which is why they wash it daily. Lice are better able to nest in oily based hair. AA hair is naturally drier & prone to breakage, which is why we must go out of our way to moisturize.
    As far as teacher's note, some things are better said in person. That's already an awkward convo to have, and your intended message & tone can be misconstrued on paper.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    I agree it does especially after a few days in humid weather. But the teacher's approach was all types of wrong.

  • http://totallifechanges.com/PurTEA VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    I use organic coconut oil when my hair is wet. You don't use a lot because it's thick.... and it last and deals in moisture if done correctly. I have thick, curly, dry hair. I use shea too when I'm getting a weave though. I'm all for natural hair and products I never experienced it stinking up the joint . I wonder how much she is washing, using etc? I mean you have to wash the hair then remoisurize every three weeks. It's a process . If this picture is the little girl her hair is beautiful too bad we can't scratch and sniff!!! The teacher tried it!!!!! PS Water and diet alone will not keep hair moisturised.

  • pika12

    I agree, it looks good so decreasing the oil may not be a good idea. Maybe she could use a light finisher that would soften or compliment the scent of the oil.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    A few quick points:

    1. I take issue with several of your comments
    due to their lack of historical context and absence of fact/truth.

    a. Chinatown-Chinatown is not the result of a bunch of Chinese people deciding they wanted
    to huddle in dilapidated buildings and crime ridden/rodent infested portions ofcommunities. They were primarily forced their, initially, due to discriminationand their inability to find suitable housing in yt neighborhoods. These arefacts.

    b. We don’t have Blacktown or African-American town because the areas we created for ourselves were either: 1) burned down/destroyed; 2) intentionally infested with drugs/guns/disease and crime; or 3) HAS BEEN TAKEN AWAY from us via
    gentrification.

    2. No one is “shocked”. People are outraged as
    they should be. If you are being paid by the state, via my tax money, to teach MY child, you better get some cultural sensitivity training quickly or deal with me being all in, up AND through that azz. Period. Even if I chose to self-educate my child, my property taxes would still be used to FUND these racist azz school systems. Period.

    teacher did her job. looked out for the kid and sent the note directly to the person responsible. the parent, just to win the lil battle, is going to further subject her child to embarrassment.

    I think the teacher is the one that was schooled effectively and ended up being embarrassed. The note she wrote had spelling errors and she was reprimanded by the school as she should have been.

  • hi-liter

    Looking at the child's hair texture, it doesn't require a lot of oil, and may appear to have a lot because her texture is 3C or 4A. My texture is 4c (sister locked), and it doesn't matter how much coconut oil I put in my hair, it doesn't shine or smell, but I know my hair and scalp are moisturized.

    What Stav is saying is that as black woman/men it is very rare to get lice ; due to the fact that we use oils in our hair as well on a daily/weekly bases...

    it has no smell but it can go rancid especially if she applies it everyday without washing it out weekly, that's probably the smell the kids are complaining about.

    Coconut oil is a myth of healthiness for black hair. It lays on top of the hair and does not saturate therefore it is not moisturizing, instead it is just "greasing". Coconut oil is good in the bath, good on skin, not good on hair. It's deceiving because it feels good but is actually drying the hair out.

    Better hair oils are olive oil, avocado oil, and carrot oil (but be careful, carrot oil is wonderful but it stains).

    I don't know how much kinder the teacher could have worded the sensitive note. My only issue is she's a teacher and wrote necessary instead of the correct grammatical use of necessity.

    There are schools where no perfumes, no oils, no nail polish, no make up, no hair sprays, no hair gels or product is the dress code. That goes for everybody, every race. Aromas in general are considered a disturbance to learning.

    Coconut oils moisturizes skin, the skin drinks it. But it lays on hair and dries it out. It's not the coconut oil that smells, its the build up.

    a good option for treating very young children or if you want to avoid using insecticides. However, wet-combing is time consuming and must be repeated multiple times over a period of a few weeks.

    Wet the hair and add a lubricant, such as hair conditioner or cream rinse, vinegar, or olive ..

    This is from a very well respected medical reference. Has nothing to do with hair texture. So yes little Amiyah with the coconut oil is less likely to have head lice.

    From what I read, the daughter is being teased because her hair smells to the other kids... she did what she was supposed to do - Make the suggestion that the mother either not use as much of WHATEVER she's using. If the mother got offended and the girl's is known as stank-fro in class and the mother is OK with it... then it is what it is. You can't not say anything and you can't say anything. GTFOH... If some kids were teasing my baby because they felt like he smelled and I didn't realize it, I would want to know so that he's not in class smelling anymore. We have become a bunch of sensitive pussies. Get over it.

  • Gigi92

    This ignorant ass teacher needs to be removed. It's "the neccessity." She's worried about the wrong damn thing. She needs to tell those little ignorant ass children in her classroom to keep their mouth closed and stop bullying and being judgemental.

    It's not only the teacher's note that was disturbing, but Sandra's reply. Coconut oil smells very good. Many of us used it growing up and still do. Water is not enough to moisturize our hair. Everyone knows we need to add hair grease or other moisturizers as well to keep it from breaking. Sandra, why must you be so vicious towards Black women?

    If I was getting teased at school and my teacher sent my mom a note like that giving her the heads up, I could only pray that my mom would have the common sense to think of me first and not her ego and do what she can to spare me from that level of misery. Does that food stamp trap even care about her kid or is it all about her ego? How will she respond if this child gets into fights at school over this, or worse is bullied in and outside of school and she decides to harm herself as a result? Let's hope the child gets suspended and maybe that would put some sense into the mothers head.

    Would you first ask your child if they were being teased to begin with, or would you just take the teachers word for it? If it was truly about the little girl being teased, I would think SHE would have mentioned something to her mom. She's still young enough if kids hurt her feelings she would tell her mom.The child would know more about what's going on with teasing than the teacher would, which is just one of the reasons I never believed the little girl was being teased.

    Coconut oil does stink. It's has a musky coconut scent. And if the child's hair is sweating on top of that Go figure.

    I knew I wouldn't get far before coming across a comment from sm1 who realizes this. Coconut oil is very oily/greasy, so no large amount is needed at all. I use coconut oil on my curly hair every other day or so. Again, small amount because it's so oily all it's own. It has the faintest smell, if any at all TBH.

    Perhaps mom is mixing it on using an additional product on the kid's hair. And although being well hydrated helps your skin and hair naturally, some people will still have to use some form of moisturizer or oil. Fresh out the shower, dry hair, style. By mid morning, curly hair or not, I look crazy. So I have to use something on my hair.

    I'm probably reaching here, but of all the products to use, extra virgin coconut oil works best for my curly hair (and scalp). Her daughter has a good grade of hair and she probably uses it for that reason. Its simple and cuts down on the daunting task of finding 'the right product' for her grade of coil/curl.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Yep, I said that. The coconut oil just does that something to your hair.

    Envy or something silly. I'm starting to think that. Teachers can be bullies too, but not to say that's whats going on here. The little girl probably admires her own hair and the teacher's probably trying to piss on her esteem. Hey, why else would a grown woman lie on a class of kids?

  • http://devilsadvocate.sme/ snarcissism

  • http://devilsadvocate.sme/ snarcissism

    That is a fallacy. Black kids have a lower lice risk because black people use greasy hair products. The lice do not have to find ways to adapt because they have a rich food supply. In countries with a higher population of black people such as the caribbean , the lice find a way to adapt to the products because non afro pickings are quite slim

    Why did she have to post it? The teacher wrote a letter to her privately so her child wouldnt be teased and she decides to make it public like the teacher did someone wrong. I dont get it. She could have simply as for parent-teacher conference if she was offended. My gosh social media is killing our social skills. I wonder how old is this mother.

  • Anji

    Organic, extra virgin...it's great and no bother.

  • Lovelove

    I agree with you SR. But, let the black kids at the school tease the shit out of coconut Head. Then what is she going to do? And does coconut oil really work? I use it, but really???

  • Lovelove

    No. why do others have to be subjected to odors? Using less will help. If u were sitting next to someone everyday who wore cologne or a FUNK that u did not like, you don't think the issue should be politely addressed? Mom was being hypersensitive and selfish and will gave her daughter being teased.

    Her daughter probably drinks a lot of sugary beverages, but very little water. That's why her hair is dry. Hair is moisturized from the inside by drinking water. Putting oil on the hair does nothing but weigh it down and cause dust and dirt to build up on the scalp and hair strands. That shine won't last a day. That's why the clueless mama puts so much oil in her hair.

  • S T

    ?To the makers of Soul Glo....

  • TDK

    The teacher lied though, the students weren't complaining or bullying her daughter.

  • Stl_heat

    First off SANDRA it not foul-smelling GREASE its OIL lady. Big freaking difference. 2nd whats foul to some is aromatic to others. I happen to like the smell of coconut oil. 3rd You are being just as ignorant as that teacher, Extra Virgin Organic coconut oil has a mild PLEASANT smell. However, refined coconut oil does NOT SMELL AT ALL as it is deodorized. Since you dont know what kind she uses maybe you shouldnt comment at ALL bully.

  • Stl_heat

    Dont even see how it caused a fungus considering it has ANTIfungal properties.

  • Stl_heat

    Right if people didn't complain about that ish... they need to stfu about coconut oil.

  • Stl_heat

    People are stupid. Refined has NO smell as its deodorized. Unrefined Virgin does. But she didnt say which she used.

  • Allihave2say

    Here I go!
    "moisturize hair from the inside by drinking lots of water", we do but we moisturize and seal on the outside too. Sandie this explains your ends in that photo from the ugly man.
    This mom is too sensitive sometimes there can be too much coconut oil and the oil runs at recess when the child gets hot. She'll be looking like that guy from the Olympics.
    I throw away tens of barrettes each week at daycare. We have a policy and the moms still put 75 barrettes a day in their daughter's hair. They pull them out and on the floor they are, slip and choke hazards. I politely drop em in the trash.

  • Stl_heat

    Doesn't dry my hair or cause build up.

  • Allihave2say

    Stop it. We moisturize and seal with oil. She doesn't need a lot to achieve the goal however.

  • Allihave2say

    Sweet almond oil or grapeseed oil can achieve the same.

  • Michelle

    There is nothing worse than a teacher who can not spell or use correct grammatical phrases. "I understand the necessary of coconut oil". This teacher has bigger issues than hair grease. I think this mother should find her little munchkin a new teacher.

  • Michelle

  • nich

    Thanks for the info. Im getting a lesson all on this thread tonight!! I've tried coconut oil on my hair, not a fan. My thing has been the line of Jamaican black castor oil products from Shea Moisture. That's some great stuff right there!!

  • Anji

    It depends on hair type and chemistry. I'm natural and coco oil and butters are too heavy on my texture. I use coco oil as a detangler pre-poo but wash it out then clarify. I keep a jar in kitchen, bathroom and bedroom. It has a multitude of uses and combined with shea butter and essential oils, it is excellent for hair, skin, body.

  • whitty hutton

    Raw, unfiltered, unheated coconut oil kills candida in the gut. That's a fact. Some chemotherapy drugs can cause a candida overgrowth and it must be "starved" to stop the overgrowth which is one of the healing properties if coconut oil. I am a living witness to coconut oil's effectiveness in killing off candida. The Body Ecology Diet is an excellent read on this topic.

  • Genia W-m

    In the original article it says the mom went to the school to find out the girl was never teased about it and the teacher was being disciplined.

  • whitty hutton

    Sandra, give it a rest!

  • Sistergirl

    I am with the teacher! I was coming from Fiji and was in the tiniest airport ever. The size of a toilet or powder room. One lady had coconut oil in her hair. It was so smelly and made me nauseated. I just thought to myself that I would hate to be the cause of someone wanting to throw up because of my hair. Some hair stinks. I can't stand that pink lotion either! My husband's friend wife has a mixed baby and I met her for the first time. That little girl had her hair washed in pink. It was so smelly and so greasy and she was cuddling my kids teddies! The reason I had to say the baby mixed is because you cannot tell her anything about hair coz she knows it all! She thinks pink lotion is the secret and she in with the secret. I think some black people getting carried away with this stuff. My Indian friends stay at home when they treat their hair with coconut oil then Shampoo it out next morning. Never seen anyone apply to dry hair as part of a style and go out into the world, It stinks!!!!!!

  • Sistergirl

    Yep

  • Rhyme and Reason

    I read on Yahoo that it turned out that there were no kids complaining, teasing or bullying according to school administrators. I don't know if she used 100% coconut oil that doesn't have much of a scent or the hair oil w/coconut oil fragrance. The little girl hair looks clean and healthy. Maybe, it's the shampoo that has the odor? I get why she went to social media because school principals and administrators basically stick together to keep parents in check, and also because of potential law suits.

    The teacher should have requested a parent/teacher conference instead of a note because they often don't understand our hair, and they loathe oily hair as a rule, until Argan oil, shea butter and others! If the mom didn't detect an odor, she would have reason to call foul on the teacher's part, why a face to face should have been the way to go! She did get a response from the school, and the matter was resolved, and she's not pulling her daughter out of the school. Miscommunication happens! And, I do get your point, but social media will get you quicker results sometimes, and it will also be misused!

  • http://devilsadvocate.sme/ snarcissism

    you subject people to odors everyday, wheter its toothpaste, lotion , perfume etc If some one told you you stink because of your lotion or perfume , would you be as forgiving? there are fragances that i dont like, but i recognize that i dont have the right to telll others what to use. For all you know the teacher finds the scent of coconut noxious. In addition one should take the children's stage of development into consideration, all it takes is for one kid to say something and then the rest pile on

  • http://yeuphonic.com @yeuphonic

    You're right, I don't. I was just saying no one is IMMUNE to contracting lice

  • http://yeuphonic.com @yeuphonic

    I was and it's a medically proven fact that NO HAIR IS IMMUNE from contracting lice. It's uncommon but not impossible. Please read for the operative words and take your stupidity to the nearest medical facility that deals with parasitic infections and ask a professional. @stav you too.

    And if you don't know how to construct a sentence in English, you shouldn't be teaching students in America. You can be a doctor, an engineer, a business owner but you shouldn't be teaching students not even as an ESL teacher as you have to be fully fluent written and oral for that position as well.

  • KitKat

    Have used extra virgin coconut oil and olive oil on my locs for 5 year. Love it!!!! Castor oil is too heavy for my hair and it stains my pillowcases. No stink or complaints here......

  • KitKat

    One jar lasts me almost a year.

  • KitKat

    Mine either. A little does go a long way though.

  • Doink_Ahanahue

    ...and many people have allergies to aromas that are even considered pleasant. I have to be careful about the colognes and deodorants I wear. Some cause immediate headaches!

  • Doink_Ahanahue

    But if you go in the beauty supply store and buy the little jar of Coconut Oil it does have the fragrance.

  • Doink_Ahanahue

    Here's my issue:
    A teacher politely presented an issue and a viable solution, even pointing out that her daughter was getting teased. WHY IS IT SO HARD FOR A BLACK PERSON (ESPECIALLY BLACK WOMAN) TOO MAKE A SIMPLE OR SLIGHT ADJUSTMENT????!!!
    I believe she probably does get teased. My hair is curly and semi-straight and my mom used Coconut Oil when I was a kid. After a few weeks of telling her I was tired of the kids calling me 'coconut head", she changed what we used.
    It takes a stronger person to see past themselves and make adjustments than it does to push your so-called "right" on someone else!

  • Yoni

    Yeah and you sound real smart. Bet you won't say that from behind a keyboard. Mutt.

  • Elle

    Absolutely! As soon as I read a note like that I would be all in the business of who, when, what, etc. LOL Most girls are more expressive than little boys at that age ( my daughter used to follow me around the house telling me about her day LOL) so imagine my horror when my son told me at the end of the school year that he had been bullied all year, but didn't say anything to me about it because he thought it would work itself out..I was so HURT! But it may have been best he didn't tell me..because it actually did work itself out for him. My intervening may have made it worse..for him.

  • Ant Hill

    Because their mother's raised them that way, and simps like Steve Harvey and Obama tell Black women they can do whatever they want and no one should have a problem with it. And if all else fails then blame it on Black men.

  • Nonya Bizness

    Just curious, because I always ask my son when a teacher or someone else says something. That makes me sad that your son was bullied, but happy that he was able to let it work itself out, and has those life skills. I'm sure I'd have been all over someone's a $$, like a maniac lol.

    It's surely not in the projects. However, you seem so invested in the black culture, what happened in your childhood?

  • Elle

    Right! LOL That was for sure going to be my strategy too! But in hindsight, it may have been best I didn't know and blank because I could have made it worse for him (poor relationship with the teacher, destroyed reputation for him on the bus, in class, football field, etc.) Thanks for the love!

  • itsjismemelly

    1st of all why cant the teach write a correct sentence? and she is an educator? that worries me more that this foolishness. I luv the way coconut oil smells in my hair and on my body

  • Jayde da Blade

    Ion no. I noticed my hair would "spoil" when i used it.
    After a while it stank to me in less than a week.
    So i stopped using it in that manner.

  • Jayde da Blade

    This is off topic but your too and to need reversing.
    The teacher wrote not to put too much.
    The too put an emphasis on it being more than enough.
    I apologize ahead of time as its rude to correct you in this way.
    My intention is genuine and i mean you well?
    And the grammer police is not here?.

  • Yoni

    You didn't answer the question. How typical. And what does child support have to do with this exchange? Does your black husband know how you feel? You are yt trash, aren't you? Such a shame that you want to be a black woman so bad that you troll our sites looking for fights. How sad and miserable your life must be. Did your daddy fukk you when you were little? Are you a product of incest? What about your mutt ass kids? Bet you won't answer that. Matter of fact, don't. You are beneath me. Scram.

    Sweet heart, I consider myself an African American with Russian Jewish Ancestry and Irish Catholic Ancestry. Most of the rest of you are Ni g g er s and I don't engage in the slang that ghetto dwellers use. I am also sorry that you were impregnated by Dookie who did not want to marry you.

  • Stl_heat

    Then its NOT real coconut oil. Its probably grease. I get mine from whole foods stores, SAMS or on line. Nutiva has a great Virgin Organic coconut oil. Ones you sould get from the beauty supply generally you cant eat. REAL coconut oil you can eat, cook with it, use it on skin and hair, lubricant, oil pulling, fight yeast infections etc..

  • Stl_heat

    Yes it does. Idk what these people are using. Bit the things they're saying is contradictory.

  • Stl_heat

    Regular oil and grease is key to not getting lice. Thats why MOST AA people dont get it. It CAN NOT survive on the artificial oils/grease that we apply to our hair, its tooooo thick. However, the ones thats dont use the artificial stuff can get lice.

  • Nida TheNerd Shakira

    How about Dax though, smdh

  • Diane

    Is that an apostrophe after d in kids? because if so, there are larger issues than coconut oil in the child's hair, the teacher can't spell.

  • ?Royalty?

    Agreed! My natural hair HATED it but the rest of my body loves it.

  • SaveTheMonarchs

    Coconut oil in hair STINKS. I thought it was only me, but now I know. It starts off smelling good, then ends up with a nasty as$ smell. The mother is a black fool.

  • OctoberLibra1 .

    No bitch that gif of FAKEonce is the devil...

  • OctoberLibra1 .

    I think that angry black bitch should cut back like instructed. The teacher was doing her a favor by letting her know...and like MOST black women, they get angry before they start thinking about reasoning. Everything isn`t about black and white, and though the students will tease her anyway, at least it won`t be over the smell in her hair. I am quite sure she cakes the shit in the little girls hair so her lazy ass doesn`t have to do anything to it, so she can have enough time to spend with Tyrone.. Black people are always doing the most.

  • OctoberLibra1 .

    I agree. Most of these black children are being raised by ignorant parents, mothers especially. Because I would not argue with and educator over something so trivial, as the teacher has the child`s best interest at heart. She wasn`t rude or disrespectful...and I find it very appalling, but not uncommon for black women especially to react in the manner in which this mother did. Her reaction is the reason why a lot of these teachers who invest their lives in going to school to become educators are changing careers...Even in day cares, these same type of women get these jobs and ignore the children, beat the children, and/or leave the children on the school buses...and the parents of these children are no better. My sister worked at a day care center and the stories she would tell me about those black bitches that worked with her, made my skin crawl and that`s why she ended up finding another career. And as you can see, the majority of these ignorant comments siding with this ignorant mother, is exactly what I am talking about.

  • OctoberLibra1 .

    You sound stupid just like the mother...whether it`s the smell bothering the children or the teacher, if it wreaks that bad to fill up a classroom then it`s a problem...period, point blank. The heffa needs to cut back or find another product...and more than likely, the little girl hair hadn`t been washed and the mother just cakes coconut oil on top of dirty coconut oil and it enhances the stink factor. I have never seen so many black women always wanting to be combative instead of reasonable. Black men say this about black women all the time, and yet they still don`t get it.

  • OctoberLibra1 .

    That mother probably had not been washing that little girls hair, and every day would put more coconut oil in that child`s head on top of dirty coconut oil and it intensified not only the coconut smell, but stank hair smell as well.

  • OctoberLibra1 .

    Exactly...I was just telling someone else, that lazy heffa was packing that coconut oil on that childs hairs everyday without washing her hair and conditioning, before applying the coconut ail. From the looks of the picture the little girls hair looks like she uses quite a bit

  • OctoberLibra1 .

    Prime example of why these black kids are dying by the dozens...everything is not about an argument or fight...black people need to pick their battles and this is not one of them. That mother could simply change products or cut back, but she will lose this battle and that little girl will be going to another school. It`s a simple fix, the teacher was respectful, but here again, angry black woman ready to spar over nonsense. That`s why I steer clear of angry black women...can`t even deal with the drama. Black men says it all the time,, about black women and their attitudes....its too much

  • http://devilsadvocate.sme/ snarcissism

    The kids are picking on the daughter. Its not a black thing at this point. Its a mother ting.

  • Lola

    Coconut oil has no smell .. ?

  • kayla

    you are hella rude for that, calling her a black bitch, and black people are doing most. whats wrong with you? You've got serious issues. "And though the students will tease her anyway, at least it won`t be over the smell in her hair". There is nothing wrong with that child. she is a very beautiful young lady.Its very wrong of you to hate on a llittle child. And she dosent even put that much in the girls hair as seen on the picture everyone who puts coconut oil in their hair, it eventually start to smell later in the day. im sure you wouldnt be the happiest person in the world if your childs teacher sent that note home. Also this all is coming from a white woman.
