One girl was in a protracted depression.
She felt so powerless and worthless that she didn’t even want to comb her hair.
One woman from Waterloo, Iowa, decided to bring a clump of hair on the head of a teenage girl back to life.
On August 8, 2017, a 16-year-old girl from Capri College came to the salon and asked to shave off her unwanted hair, which could not be saved, as it was very tangled.
She needed to take a picture for the start of the new school year. And the girl could not think of anything better than to shave off the clump of matted hair on her head.
But Kylie Olsson, the stylist, knew how to help the girl.
During the haircut, the girl said that she was struggling with depression and got out of bed only to go to the bathroom.
Kylie posted about it on her Facebook page, and the post went viral instantly.
The stylist noted that she was touched by the story of the girl and certainly decided to help her.
“It was one of the most difficult cases in my life. It was very difficult, because the girl cried all the time when her hair was combed,” the stylist notes.
“All people on earth are subject to changes in the psychological state, no matter what age. Parents, please take your child’s mental health seriously, don’t push or ask him or her to deal with their problems if they don’t know how to do it! A child shouldn’t feel so useless that she doesn’t want to brush her hair.”
13 hours of hard work paid off. The girl smiled again.
Kylie realized that she did everything right.
“I will smile in school photos thanks to you,” the girl said to the master.
Kylie was touched. People who read this story also thank her for her kind heart and hope that the new image will help the girl to love herself and achieve her goals.
