  • joshina martin says:

    Kudos to her for not giving up ❤❤..

  • Ashley Hallman says:

    It's bad enough adults deal with this but a child & I've been there as a young teen( I'm 34 now & just realizing my worth) this is unacceptable. Depression is a key role in suicide. Kudos to that hair stylist 😭😭❤❤

  • Rachel Hartjes says:

    This hairstylist is such a beautiful soul, you can just tell. ♡

  • kabella Steinberg says:

    That hair dresser is one in a million❤

    Kayley the hairdresser has such a lovely soulful face and eyes. Kindness personified.

  • becky g says:

    I used to be so depressed it started affecting my physical health and part of that was my hair falling out :/

  • Jessica Sotelo says:

    I started crying as soon as I heard the part that she was so depressed that she couldn’t get out of bed and the hair dresser spent hours helping her and transforming her hair.
    This hair stylist could’ve just done what the teen asked and shaved it, but she selflessly spent hours helping the young girl.
    I’m speechless.

  • Sara Dunlap says:

    Bless both of them 🙏

  • Kai Alexandria says:

    I love that they had the hairstylist on here instead of the teen. (Speaking from personal experience) depression can be so traumatizing and shameful and I'm glad they didnt put the young lady on blast and make her feel uncomfortable. That hairstylist is such a blessing. Sometimes we don't realize just how much we're helping someone even in the seemingly simplest ways
    I suffer from horrible depression to the point where I don't even want to leave my bed to use the bathroom. It can be soul crippling. I'm glad in most recent years depression & mental illness is in the forefront and people are being more open and honest about it❤❤❤

  • Sychgop says:

    Big mood

  • ITSMENIKKl says:

    I started crying from the title lol and just the start of the video I was sobbing
    I haven’t left my bed in months either

  • sweet one says:

    schools need to focus more and reach out to teenagers with anxiety, social anxiety, depression and other mental health problems in general. they expect us to do everything they want us to do, and ignore all the problems we go through at home and outside of school. for example they may be dealing with parents who are divorced or getting a divorce, or deaths in their family, or being bullied by others, the list goes on. they’re so many things that are ignored and not taken seriously enough. all they seem to care about is how much work you produce or how your uniform looks, or whether you did the homework or not. it’s not fair because 99% of the time school and homework triggers anxiety and depression, or at least most definitely makes it worse and stresses teens out more than they could imagine…

  • Andrea Paul says:

    What a wonderful human being. I hope the young girl is feeling better 🙏🏼😇

  • Pluto Neptune says:

    Britney gray would NEVER do this. If you don’t know she is she’s a youtuber that’s also a hair dresser.

  • april hanako says:

    At the salon I work at a stylist had client who was a teenage girl that had months of matted hair.

    A little backstory on her she was shipped out of state from her mom to her aunt to care for her over summer. She was a mixed girl that was staying with her Caucasian aunt who obviously didn’t know how to care for her hair because she didn’t see anything wrong with her matted hair.

    On textured coarse dense hair it’s a little harder and more difficult to simply brush out months worth of matted hair. After 2 hours her stylist couldn’t even get through maybe more than 2 square inches of hair and the girl was in pain crying through every bit. Maybe another hour later she got through a little more and it was so bad. It has so much dirt build up her black hair was practically white within the mattes. It smelled so awful it was almost a hygiene issue. At the end her and the stylist decided forward on just cutting it off and doing a Rihanna style pixie.

    I commend this stylist for working on her for 13 hours but I hope she got paid for that time. A whole work day just for one client is rough.

  • Nish Wayz says:

    What’s so annoying is that people fake depression or uses the word anxiety in the wrong way, people think people with depression and anxiety are a joke because of the posers, so now we literally feel like we have to pretend we’re okay and hope the shit just magically disappears

    Down my YouTube rabbit hole that I ventured into, I came across this video. I am now crying and smiling while watching this. THIS is what humanity, selflessness and kindness looks like. THIS should be our main focus in our schools and workplaces. Amazing. This hairstylist deserves the recognition she got for doing such a selfless deed. Bravo.

  • dru says:

  • Baby Ahmat says:

    my hair look like that. am i depressed??

  • הגר גדליוביץ' says:

    I was so depressed a year ago that I didn't brush or washed my hair for two weeks, let alone got into the shower or even changed my clothes (and I mean all of them), my hair came out in clumps because it was so dry and one day it just freaked me out, just like that. So I went to the mall, bought new pants, shirt and undergarments for lack of a more polite word for it, bought a brush, a comb and non-wash conditioner and just locked myself in the public bathroom for an hour and a half, until my hair was 100% tangle free and only then I changed my clothes, wore some deordorant and threw my old clothes to the garbage, just like that. The feeling is nothing short of a rebirth, and I think I could do that because I'm a girl, I don't know how boys Cope with these feelings but I do feel like they should be addressed as well because they're often in the shadows. I'm sorry if this is uncomfortable for anyone, but that's the truth as I see it. And, I think this woman is incredible and I think that girl is incredible for even making the first step and getting to the hair salon, it couldn't have been easy for her and I think she's very brave. She saved her own life by letting others help her. Her future boyfriend or girlfriend are very very lucky she's coming their way.
