Blue Ivy’s nappy hair has upset black Twitter in the past. Now Jay-Z’s mini-me was recently photographed with a very nappy afro with Beyonce walking behind her. Blue Ivy’s hair has always been natural, e.g., hasn’t been straightened and no one has a problem with that, but some people have an issue with Blue’s matted, dry dirty hair with lint in it that is growing into dreadlocks at the ends.
Beyonce is much older than Blue is in the photo above, but B’s mom is a hairdresser. She knows better than this.
I completely support the petition urging Beyonce to do something right with Blue Ivy Carter’s hair! Those who say that the petition is wrong because “BLUE IVY IS A CHILD!” don’t understand that the petition was made BECAUSE she’s a child.
Blue is too young to comb her hair herself, which is why being photographed with a dirty, nappy afro is so sad. She has no choice but to look a mess because her parents and their staff don’t do anything with her hair, which is why she’s growing dreadlocks and has lint in her hair.
Beyonce’s stans are furious about this petition and those fearing the wrath of the Beyhive are defending Beyonce. But this is simple. This isn’t about how much one enjoys Beyonce. The petition is urging her mother to not allow her daughter’s hair to become dreaded. It’s already matted, dry and dirty and will only become more matted if her parents keep this up.
Meanwhile, Beyonce’s hair is laid and she only wears high quality fake hair, that’s styled perfectly. So why isn’t Bey combing her daughter’s hair? If she doesn’t want to comb her hair herself because Blue cries when her hair is combed, she has staff that can take care of it. And if Bey and Jay-Z don’t want other people touching their daughter’s hair, they should shave it off.
The Comb Blue Ivy’s Hair petition reads:
“As a woman who understands the importance of hair care. It’s disturbing to watch a child suffering from the lack of hair moisture. The parents of Blue Ivy. Sean Carter A.K.A Jay-Z and Beyoncé has failed at numerous attempts of doing Blue Ivy Hair. This matter has escalated to the child developing matted dreads and lint balls. Please let’s get the word out to properly care for Blue Ivy hair.”
Never in my life have I seen a child with hair in such poor condition. The petition is not an insult to Blue Ivy, who can not read but will be embarrassed by the photos of her nappy hair. The petition is a call to action to her negligent parents who refuse to comb their daughter’s hair. How can you even wash your hair if your entire afro is turning into a friggin’ rat’s nest?
