Halle Berry Had To Shave Daughter Nahla's Hair For This Reason

Halle Berry Had To Shave Daughter Nahla's Hair For This Reason

Halle Berry reminds us all the big reason we all need to brush our hair.

During her chat with Jimmy Fallon and his daughter, Winnie, on The Tonight Show this week, the 53-year-old actress revealed that her own daughter, Nahla, had to have the back of her head shaved because it had gotten matted from not brushing it.

“Every day we’re swimming and when we get out of the pool, my daughter’s like…‘I don’t need you to brush my hair,’” Halle explained. “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 added that she tried to get the mat out of Nahla‘s hair using conditioner to loosen it up, but to no avail.

“I’m pulling and she’s screaming… [the knot only got] “tighter.”

Halle shared that she “had to shave her hair off. She’s bald in the back.”

“Now she gets it,” she says. “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.’”
