Leave that baby be she is only two years old and Beyoncé she doesn’t need a perm, she already have good hair and the perm will damage her hair at that age.

People need to worry about themselves and how they baby look.

Love, jb

Blue Ivy’s hair is just fine! She is African American and her hair is natural. It’s adorable. More African Americans should have more pride in who they are and raise their children to love themselves and their attributes. Why do you think other races are always trying to get our skin color (tanning) our lips our behinds, our hair, etc. Come on people – wake up!!!! Kudos to Beyoncé and Jay Z who are raising a wonderful daughter who will have a strong sense of identity.

Okay, this is going to be an essay rather than a comment, but so be it.This issue of Blue Ivy’s hair needs to be put to bed. First of all, a petition regarding someone’s beloved child’s hair is offensive and absurd, no matter who it is. But, beyond that, anyone who doesn’t have a close-up view of that beautiful little girl’s hair and doesn’t have the experience of having to deal with it should bow out of the conversation. Granted, it does appear dry and maybe a little matted at times in photos of her, no matter where she and her parents happen to be. But it’s more complex than that. Much more.

My daughter, now seventeen, also had hair that was super thick, super curly, and also long as a toddler. It was so thick you couldn’t see her scalp even when parting it.Trying to make her look like she wasn’t neglected took more time and tears than anyone who doesn’t have that hair can imagine. Combing that kind of hair on a toddler is a NIGHTMARE. It would take hours out of my day, and my daughter would scream as though I was murdering her. We would both be sweating, red faced, and in tears, and would have to take frequent breaks because she would start hyperventilating. Seriously, the neighbors once called the cops because they thought I was abusing my child.

Moisturizing. You’re damned if you do and damned if you don’t, because that just makes the hair gunky and causes lint balls to accumulate. That gunk is impossible to wash out, and washing make the curls lock up even tighter. What kids with this type of hair usually wind up with is hair that’s clean on the surface and is a veritable rat’s nest underneath if you don’t go through the tortuous routine. So, on some days we did the best we could combing, and on other days we let it go, and maybe added a bow or headband. People would just have to say and think what they wanted to, and I’m sure some did behind our backs. In the end, I wound up having to cut all my daughter’s off when she was a preschooler. We had no option other than to give it a fresh start.

Fast forward a few years to today. My daughter has long, beautiful hair down to her waist. Never do we go out that someone doesn’t remark and compliment her on it, and that’s no exaggeration. We relax it now because that’s what she feels works best for her very active lifestyle, but we’ve walked into many a salon where we’ve actually been refused service once people saw how thick and long it was. My daughter still has, as her one faithful hair stylist calls it, “three heads worth of hair.” I willingly pay extra to have it done, because it takes several hours.

Beyonce has quite the chore and conundrum on her hands, because she has to choose between two evils. She’s obviously choosing not to torture her child, and to let the haters run their mouths. Will Blue Ivy have damaged hair that has to be chopped off some day? Maybe. Maybe not. Will Bey one day regret not having made more of an effort to tame the hair? Maybe. Maybe not. Will her daughter one day look at pictures and ask, “Mom, why did you take me out looking like a mess all the time?” Maybe. Maybe not. Will it matter in the long run? Not. The point is that it’s the parents’ call. Your child is only a happy, carefree toddler once, and your precious time with them at that stage shouldn’t be spent worrying over something like hair, or having people berate you for your very personal decisions.”

THE END

My daughter’s hair is also thick and tangles easily.
When she was Blue Ivy’s age I put a texturizer kit in it.
It made the hair more manageable.
She is now 12 and goes natural.
We use different conditioners and creams to keep the hair moisturized and tangle free.
She has so many styles to choose from and does something different every day.
Blue is a baby and I am sure she is tender headed.
No parent wants to see the baby scream over their hair being combed.
As long as it’s being conditioned and combed out from time to time. I see no harm.
When she gets a little older it will be easier.
Her grandmother is a beautician. If she has no say so, why should anyone else.
I say people should mind their own damn business and worry about their own damn kids hair.

You just KNOW it’s being done by white people that have no idea how to maintain black hair plus, a baby’s hair is nobody’s business, it doesn’t matter who her parents are. You have no right to tell them how to look after their baby. (Who reportedly has a gold rocking horse, she is WELL looked after.)

Truth is they really do need to take better care of this little girls hair. It always looks like she just got out of bed. Will all the money they have surely they can do something. Heck, Mom’s hair always looks immaculate, why can’t they make sure that Blue’s hair looks just as good. After all they seem to have plenty of money. Come on B & J surely you can do so much better for your little girl.

She needs to mind her own damn business.
There is nothing wrong with that child’s hair.
It usually looks in dis-array bit not dry or matted with lint ball.
Seriously lady, get a life!

born living under evil – Illuminatti’s Very Youngest. AnyhowBeyonce does take better care of her own hair so she should put more effort into Blue Ivy’s hair.Even natural hair needs moisture and shine and needs to be cared for.

Its not the texture of the child’s hair, its the fact that it needs washing, combing and a little oil on it. Her hair looks dirty and matted up. That’s the problem most people have. Yeah, I know that it’s her baby, but Beyonce needs to do better. Its like she just don’t care. I still do not believe she ever wanted a baby and she didn’t give birth to Blue!! She seems to be too self absorbed to be a mother, and that’s okay. She should not have allowed Jay Z to push her to have a child when it’s clear that she didn’t want one. Just sayin…
