One woman’s heartbreak over her mother’s decision to give her son a fresh cut while she was away at college
After giving birth to a son with gorgeous dark curly hair, Haihxx uploaded a TikTok video that has since amassed more than 8.1 million views.
But her mother had a different opinion, and she gave the boy a gorimapa, which is a Nigerian term for a completely shaved head.
A young mother who left her son with her mother found that he had been shaved completely bald upon her return.
Haihxx shared that her son has always had hair right from birth as she posted photos and video of the kid’s amazing dark curly hair.
Her mother however saw things from a different perspective as she shaved off the hair without delay.
The grandmum cut the boy’s hair to the skin, giving him the kind of hairstyle that Nigerians refer to as ‘gorimapa.’
When she returned and saw the new look of her son, Haihxx said she was in so much hurt.
“My heart still hurts. All I did was laugh because she’s my mum, hair will grow back.”

“We would never speak again.”
@Johnny bravo reacted:

“I hope it was worth it cause you won’t be seeing him till it grows all the way back.”
