WHY IS NORTH WEST’S PONYTAIL CAUSING A STIR?

Kim Kardashian West is being mommy shamed again… This time for doing what all moms do – allow their daughter’s to straighten their hair when they reach a certain milestone. That’s right, KKW is being shamed for allowing North West to step out with a straight ponytail on her 5th birthday Friday, June 15th.

I remember the first time I got my hair straightened (with a hot comb, before I gave into the creamy crack) it was for my 10th birthday and I begged my mom to let me wear it lose with a headband instead of in pigtails like a little girl. I was experiencing my rite of passage as black girl and so is Northie.

Recently, I took my curly-haired 4-year-old daughter to Milk and Cookies Kids Spa to get a braided hairstyle and in order for this to happen, the beautician had to wash, conditon, and then blow dry the hair straight so that it was easier to braid. My baby girl loved her hair straight and I would do it again when she’s much older because I love her curls. Selfish, I know…

Kim straightening North’s hair is no big deal to me because the girls in this family are known for their slick, straight, mermaid-like hair.

Let Northie enjoy being a 5-year-old and leave Kim alone! She’s doing what mommies do for their little girls. I would do the same!
