16 YEAR OLD BLACK AMERICAN GIRL SHAVES OFF HER HAIR TO PROTEST AGAINST BODY SHAMING

16 year old 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 but this mindset changed after a mind blowing experience.

We all know how easy it is to feel insecure at age 16 especially when you think you have something that diminishes your beauty. On the 28th of January, some boys at Lulu’s school had taken a $5 BET about pulling her wig off in front of everyone.

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.

In a surprising show of bravery however, instead of Lulu to be depressed and try to get a new wig as fast as possible, she decided to shave her hair off and not let these bullies win. She did not want to feel controlled by her hair any longer, and so she took back her control.

Her mother, Myckelle shared the amazing story of her daughter on her Instagram page.
