Halle Berry On Why She Shaved Her Daughter Nahla’s Head

Halle Berry is opening about why she had to shave her daughter’s head!

While appearing on The Tonight Show, the actress said that she and her two kids — son Maceo-Robert, 6, and daughter Nahla Ariela, 12 — have been spending a lot of time in their pool at home while social distancing.

Apparently, swimming has taken its toll on Nahla’s locks.

“We’re doing her homework the other night and [Nahla] goes, ‘Mom, I’m scared to tell you this, but touch the back of my head.’ All her hair, which is past her shoulders, has shrunken up into a tight ball that feels like matted fur,” she said. “I can’t even get my finger in it, and I’m pulling and she’s screaming.”

After fighting with it for a long while, Halle decided she had to “shave it off,” explaining that Nahla is “bald in the back” now after the incident.

“She was not cool with that, but it was our only option. But now she gets it,” she said. “I was like, ‘First of all, maybe you’ll let your mother help you. And second of all, you learned you gotta brush your hair. Every day, you gotta brush your hair.’”

A very valuable lesson indeed!
