Would You Ever Shave Your Head?

Fotor0100203715It is quite disturbing and heartbreaking to go to your fave YouTube hair guru’s channel and find out that after 4, 5, 6, or 7 years they decide to shave their head. WHAT? WHY?

Yes, brave people like this exist. They have done the big chop or shaved numerous times, proving to themselves that life is beautiful no matter how you look. Some claim to do it in order to feel free, or simply to start their journey over again. Hey, some do it just for the style and heck of it.

Let us meet some popular natural hair gurus that have shaved their heads, and let’s have a discussion about the infamous question, would you ever shave your head?

SHAMELESS MAYA

For those who do not know Maya, you had better get to know her. Her name says it all…SHAMELESS. Check out her YouTube for more info on why she has started this shameless journey. Here in this video, Maya lets us in on the exact moment her hair gets chopped and shaved to a bald head. She is one brave cookie for cutting all that glorious hair off.

Here’s a different approach to shaving your head. Raven Elyse shaved the perimeter of head, leaving the top long. Interesting! This is still a huge step to take. You still have to be bold! Click the play button here and hear her out!

Lastly, Queen Au-Naturelle just wow meet the real MVP. Not only did she shave her head, she used a razor to go COMPLETELY bald! Also, she has done the big chop several times. Bravery all over again. Go ahead and press play to see her journey. It’s amazing!


Now that you have watched three separate journeys, the question still remains. Do you have it in you? Would you ever go bald? Comment below – we would love to know!

    I couldn’t, just don’t feel comfortable without a lot of hair. My BC was traumatising lol!

    Yes yes and yes again! I can completely understand the ladies who will never do this, it’s not for the faint of heart and it’s a preference. Your hair is a large part of your personality- we touch and play and fiddle with it all the time. To go from that to, well, nothing is a hell of an adjustment shall we say! I’ve shaved my head on two separate occasions and if I’m honest I’ve never felt more feminine. I realised I have a great shaped head, beautiful eyes and even beautiful ears (!!) and I respected the growth process and how insane my curls were. Plus, the sensation of clippers on my head for the first time was one I will never forget. Whatever you do, just be comfortably YOU! 🙂

    I did like 3 years ago. I just said fuck it (lol) I shaved it clean to start fresh. It was kinda of a scary feeling. I always had hair on my head and the lowest my hair has been when I had ms berry haircut. Would I do it again? Naw but only because I’m like six feet. And I feel lije I look like a black skinhead lol

    What? Why? I’ll donate to a cancer fund but as you can see on my profile pic, I have a large head! I don’t think the world is ready to see my apple head bald!! I don’t think I could stomach it. My brother said men were going to have more hair than women.

  14. Steen How

    Never thought about it…but I think I would look beautiful with a shaved head =D I mean my hair doesn’t define. In fact, I’ll try it!

    I got a bad perm before and my hair was falling out. So I shaved my head and girl I tell ya…I got sooo many compliments on my head wearing my African earrings that I kept it bald the entire spring, summer and as long as I could in the cooler months.

    I admire their courage and I would do a second big chop but I don’t think I have it in me to go totally bald

    I’ve had big chops before and even a shave. I loved it! I just had a buzz cut a week ago and I find it liberating. My husband doesn’t like it at all but he knows I’m tired of the damaged hair and the bad hair dye jobs so he’s been supportive.

  22. Shaniqua

    I don’t understand the comment, “Ladies, love yourselves. Not your hair or makeup or clothes.” I can understand the makeup and even clothing because those are things that we put on top of our bodes, but our hair? That grows from inside us and is connected to us. That’s like saying, love yourself don’t worry about your teeth or your skin. They are biologically a part of me. So, yes anyone can do anything they want with their hair, to insinuate that those who would not choose to arbitrarily remove their tresses don’t love themselves is inaccurate at best, and demeaning at worst.

  23. doris morrison

    yes. I have. I have recently done it on Dec 20th 2014
    so that my hair can grow back healthy.

    This has been my style since June 2012. I shave every 2-3 days. Hubby shaved it for me the first few times. Now I do it myself. Thankfully, I have a cute small head.
