A petition that urges Beyoncé to “comb Blue Ivy’s hair” went into effect after the Carter toddler was spotted this weekend with what appeared to be a just slept on head. The hair care plea has infuriated the writer from the Huffington Post in an editorial piece published Wednesday. Readers can formulate their own opinions, but if you need curly hair advice, the Long Island Hair Care Examiner has a few tips from Mahisha Dellinger, CEO of Curls, on how to manage miniature curlicues that follows the Blue Ivy report.
Jay-Z and Beyoncé’s relationship has been on the chopping block after the beat down Mr. Carter received in an elevator from Solange Knowles, Bey’s little sis. The Daily Mail captured a shot of Jay-Z, Beyoncé and Blue Ivy as the family landed on a heliport in New York Sunday after a trek to the Hamptons. Beyoncé covered a most-likely makeup-free face and her own disheveled hair with sunglasses and a hoodie, and Blue Ivy looked like a tired tot who just spent a weekend at the beach. What would be a normal photograph for any Long Island family that just enjoyed a romp at the shore has ignited a Brooklyn woman to petition the Carter family to “Comb Her Hair!”
The Blue Ivy hair petition has received a lame 100 signatures thus far, however, Julee Wilson of the Huffington Post, who didn’t want to report the “ridiculous” news in the first place, called it “rude, unnecessary and ignorant.” Whereas the petitioner sees Jay-Z and Beyoncé failing at “doing Blue Ivy’s hair,” the author views the photograph as a “toddler who just woke up from a nap.”
Jasmine Toliver of Brooklyn, New York drafted Blue Ivy’s hair care petition in words that make it appear she might be a hair care professional (clearly not once you read on), “as a woman who understands the importance of hair care,” or she could be a woman with ethnic hair. She goes on to blast the Carters for lacking in the care of Blue Ivy’s hair, which she noted occurred on more than one occasion.
It’s disturbing to watch a child suffering from the lack of hair moisture. The parents of Blue Ivy, Sean Carter A.K.A Jay-Z and Beyoncé, have failed at numerous attempts of doing Blue Ivy Hair. This matter has escalated to the child developing matted dreads and lint balls. Please let’s get the word out to properly care for Blue Ivy’s hair.
The frustration over the petition was evident and the Huff Post author concluded to “not tangle Blue Ivy’s hair with negativity.” Opinions aside, there are steps to take to ease the maintenance of curly haired children. A few years back Mahisha Dellinger, founder and CEO of Curls, provided the Long Island Hair Care Examiner with a few back-to-school tips for managing curly hair. The creator of the organic hair care for tots like Blue Ivy says to use the right shampoo and conditioner and for older children do a weekly heat treatment. Wash the hair properly, but shampoo less often in the colder weather, moisturize daily and style right, with proper styling products and avoid pulling the hair back too tight, which will cause stress in the hair. Additionally, the bands and barrettes will damage the hair.
According to Dellinger’s tips, it appears Beyoncé is properly caring for Blue Ivy’s hair. The petitioner is clearly misguided and should find other causes to petition that are worthwhile and meaningful.
