Straight, curls or waves — you can style your tresses in any way and change your look. Perhaps, that is why most people dread going bald! Both, men and women face a certain social stigma when it comes to losing hair. To break the stigma and uplift her morale, a woman chose to decorate her bald head with henna. Keneesha Bell, a school teacher, suffers from alopecia – a disease in which a person suffers from permanent hair loss from the scalp.
Aiming to inspire others suffering from hair loss, Bell embraced her baldness with a henna crown. A video of Bell getting her scalp decorated with henna was posted on social media by Al Jazeera English’s official Twitter handle and it has gone viral. She also talks about the experience in the 1.35-minute clip. “You have to work with what you have,” she says.
