From shame to fame, a Powerful Natural Hair Journey

from-shame-to-fame

@myckelle Yesterday I received a call from my youngest daughter screaming and crying on the phone, for me to come and get her from school.
Apparently, some boys had taken a $5 BET about pulling her wig off in front of everyone. 
Lulu has a scalp condition that causes severe dryness and hair breakage and loss, and had been so ashamed of her appearance that she had taken to wearing wigs in an effort to still feel beautiful. We all know how easy it is to feel insecure at age 16.

@myckelle Yesterday I received a call from my youngest daughter screaming and crying on the phone, for me to come and get her from school.

Apparently, some boys had taken a $5 BET about pulling her wig off in front of everyone. 
Lulu has a scalp condition that causes severe dryness and hair breakage and loss, and had been so ashamed of her appearance that she had taken to wearing wigs in an effort to still feel beautiful. We all know how easy it is to feel insecure at age 16.

These kids not only tore her wig off in the middle of school, but video taped it. They followed her to the bathroom as she screamed and cried and proceeded to tape her OVER the stall as she cried and begged for her wig.

Later I had to take her to the hospital for abrasions and whiplash. 
Lulu later decided to shave her hair off and not let these bullies win. She was not wanting to feel controlled by her hair any longer, and take back her control. I am only posting this with her permission but yesterday our entire family was angered and in tears about the way she was treated.

The teen suicide rate has now DOUBLED and bullying has played a HUGE Role.
If you have a teen in this situation, continue to uplift them and let them know that they are strong and beautiful and can own thier insecurities and take control rather than being controlled. 
I admire the strength and beauty of my little Lulu and know that she will inspire many others even through this difficult time in her life.
