Eleven year old Willow Smith has gone bald! Although she’s wanted to do so since she was 9 her mother, Jada Pinkett Smith, refused to let her take all her hair off. She’d been rocking a long fringe with the sides shaved for a while but Willow finally got her way. All gone!
Willow also released this photo with the caption “Dance your feelings out….”
Although there seems to be some controversy over letting an 11 year old shave all her hair off, I commend her confidence and individuality. Many women, especially in the African American community, spend hundreds and thousands of dollars a year on their hair because their identity is warped in how the style their hair, whether its theirs or not.
Besides, it’s hair and it will grow back. So, what’s the hang up? Is it because she’s 11 or because she’s gone bald, ore even both? Would love to hear your thoughts!
