Am I the only one who feels the chest pain when I see a baby crying on the top of her lungs because she is making hair (mostly Christmas hair). All that pain is really not necessary, the headache that comes from the pulling and the crying.

I approached a mother one day in the market, she had bought her daughter all sorts of snacks just so she can be quiet and bear the pain, I had to ask please (I am compassionate like that). When I asked if it was really necessary, all that torture. Here’s what she said.” whenever she sees her playmates with hair like that she comes crying to me that she wants it”.

That I didn’t drop my jaw for her there on the floor was by the grace of God. I mean, if your kid sees her friends in school with a penknife and a bullet, you will buy her own for her because she is crying. Amazing!!

Worst thing is, most hair styles that cause this kind of pain turn out ugly. Next your baby girl will grow tiny bumps on her edges, turn red and carry her neck in a robotic manner for three days. Is all that expedient?

You see those beautiful ribbons and beads being sold at the market eh? They are used to add spice to your princess’s hair. Their hair can be packed in tiny buns and beautified with them ribbons. When she grows older, old enough to understand that beauty is sometimes pain only then can you go ahead. But I am of the opinion that no baby or child between the ages of 0 and 5 should be inflicted with all that pain.
