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?


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 shaved my head twice. It’s not for everyone though.

Althea Patterson

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! 🙂
