The Powerful Reason Why This Hair Dresser Refused To Shave Her Client’s Head

A hairstylist in Iowa is speaking up about mental health after she had a client with depression so severe that she couldn’t brush her hair.

“Today I had one of the hardest experiences with my client who I am keeping anonymous,” Kayley Olsson wrote in a Facebook post that’s gone viral. Kayley says her client, who is just 16, has been dealing with severe depression for years. “She got to the point where she felt so down and so worthless she couldn’t even brush her hair, she told me she only got up to use the restroom,” Kayley said. The girl went to see Kayley before her school pictures and asked her to “just cut it all off” since she “can’t deal with the pain of combing it out. “She called herself worthless for it,” Kayley said. “It honestly broke my heart and we tried everything we could to keep this child’s hair for her!” (Kick-start your new, healthy routine with Women’s Health’s 12-Week Total-Body Transformation!)

Kayley said it took 13 hours of work over two days, but she managed to comb it all out. “We finally made this beautiful girl smile and feel like she IS worth something!” she wrote. Her last words to me were, ‘I will actually smile for my school’s pictures today, you made me feel like me again.’”
