DO HER HAIR 😤😤😤

I hate comments like this. Blue Ivy is not even 3 years old yet and people are telling her to do her hair. is she suppose to have a weave or straighten it? no. her parents are embracing her natural hair and she looks adorable regardless of how her hair looks. she is a child!!!

Preach

Since when the fuck is an Afro not done? Y’all niggas better chill on that child’s hair.

^^^

Have to agree on the first comment although I will say simple ponytails and braids are natural styles that they can do to her hair, they don’t have to perm, relax or straighten her hair, when a lot of people say “do her hair” we mean a damn ponytail or a cute braid style. Just because she’s Beyonce don’t mean I’m going to agree with everything she chooses to do (or not do) You don’t see North West hair undone. #JustMyOpinion. #SorryNotSorry

What an ignorant anti black response. Do you feel powerful tearing down black children?

For the record, the majority of the pictures of North West show her hair NOT styled or “done”. You are upholding Eurocentric beauty standards and anti black racism… Congrats. North has hair similar to her mothers, so of course it stays straight on her head. Blue Ivy’s hair is natural with a tight coil pattern and the majority of the pictures that include her have her hair in specific styles. The choice to leave your hair in a natural style doesn’t mean it’s not done or professional. Both babies are beautiful and that is exactly what they are BABIES… Who the hell are they trying to impress; You? I promise you that Blue and North would consider you irrelevant in the grand scheme of things.

I mean you may as well say “black hair is ugly, beyonce keeps her hair in a blonde weave why can’t she put a lace front on her child’s head and black features are ugly” because that is what you meant.

There are plenty of other things in the world to worry about…. Like ferguson, global warming, food/water supply, and why your edges just can’t seem to grow back. Have several seats and reevaluate, thanks.

I love you Susie!

Thank you!

………since when is an afro not considered having your hair “done”? Did i miss something?

This is how you lose her.

You lose her when you forget to remember the little things that mean the world to her: the sincerity in a stranger’s voice during a trip to the grocery, the delight of finding something lost or forgotten like a sticker from when she was five, the selflessness of a child giving a part of his meal to another, the scent of new books in the store, the surprise short but honest notes she tucks in her journal and others you could only see if you look closely.

You must remember when she forgets.

You lose her when you don’t notice that she notices everything about you: your use of the proper punctuation that tells her continuation rather than finality, your silence when you’re about to ask a question but you think anything you’re about to say to her would be silly, your mindless humming when it is too quiet, your handwriting when you sign your name in blank sheets of paper, your muted laughter when you are trying to be polite, and more and more of what you are, which you don’t even know about yourself, because she pays attention.

She remembers when you forget.

You lose her for every second you make her feel less and less of the beauty that she is. When you make her feel that she is replaceable. She wants to feel cherished. When you make her feel that you are fleeting. She wants you to stay. When you make her feel inadequate. She wants to know that she is enough and she does not need to change for you, nor for anyone else because she is she and she is beautiful, kind and good.

You must learn her.

You must know the reason why she is silent. You must trace her weakest spots. You must write to her. You must remind her that you are there. You must know how long it takes for her to give up. You must be there to hold her when she is about to.

You must love her because many have tried and failed. And she wants to know that she is worthy to be loved, that she is worthy to be kept.

And, this is how you keep her.
