Daily Diary: The Saddest Girl In The Hair Salon

My daughter hates combing her hair… and I mean HATES COMBING HER HAIR. There are tears and screams and all types of crazy happening each and every time she puts a comb to her mane. Finally, yesterday I told Bill to take her to the salon. I just couldn’t take it anymore.


They took about 4 inches off and Bill sent me pictures throughout the entire process. This is the face in every shot. She just despises having anyone comb her hair. Even though she understood that the more we took off the easier it would be in the long run… it didn’t matter.

I actually wish they took off more. I was hoping her length would fall slightly under her shoulders. But this will do. I’m really hoping this helps our situation.

When Natalie came home and I showed her the pictures she almost started to cry again. She reiterated how much she hates it when people touch her hair. I kept thinking about what a PLEASURE it is to go to the salon. I LOVE getting my hair done. I’m sure as she ages things will change. 😉

    Aw she’s too cute. My niece was same way – but multiply that by 1000 🙂 – and now she’s 17 and obsessed with brushing her hair and not having knots and it being silky. Wish I had pics to show her how bad she was about us brushing her hair b/c she doesn’t believe us!!

    My 10 yr old is very head sensitive. I catch a knot and OMG it is tears and all. She is growing her hair out to donate and right now we have to wash daily because of puberty greasy hair hitting. I can’t stand this stage. I feel your pain.

    My oldest (she’s 11) is exactly like that. She wants long hair, but the deal is that she has to take care of it or it’s getting chopped.

    It’s one battle that I don’t have time to deal with.

    Have you tried detanglers for kids? I use the Avon detangler on my hair. My hair is always a mass of knots after I shampoo. I feel her pain. A cute short cut might be just what the doctor ordered.
