The aunt shaved her niece’s hair off because it was unmanageable. The niece’s mother was angry and started arguing with the aunt. A user asked the forum, Am I a jerk for shaving my niece’s hair off?

The original poster’s sister ( OP ) has a daughter who is 4 years old. Her name is Lexi. 

Lexi has super curly hair and needs her hair to be taken care of constantly. OP’S sister’s husband ended up in the hospital and OP’s sister has been a wreck.

OP’s sister’s husband has been in a hospital only for a week, but OP’s sister has been destroyed and stopped brushing Lexi’s hair.

OP was visiting her sister with some pre-made meals and noticed the house and Lexi’s hair was a mess.  OP’s sister wasn’t doing well so OP offered to take Lexi for a bit so OP’s sister can focus on her husband.

OP tried to fix her hair, it just matted. So, she went to a hair salon to see if they could fix it, but it would be 50 dollars an hour for them to brush out the hair.

OP’s sister wasn’t picking Lexi. So OP had her head shaved the next day and sent pictures when it was done and that finally got her sister to respond.

It resulted in a huge argument. OP’s sister asked her how dare she shave her daughter’s hair and OP pointed out that she wouldn’t have shaved her niece’s hair if her sister brushed her daughter’s hair.  

OP wants to know if she is being a jerk.

“Your update and comments make it clear that you did the best you could for Lexi – the hair was causing her constant pain, and she wanted it gone; she’s satisfied with her new hairstyle, you seem to have done everything you could to untangle it first (I’m not familiar with that hair type but apparently you are as your hair is the same type).

l do think your “we wouldn’t have had to if you’d brushed your daughter’s hair” comment was uncalled for, considering the circumstances, and if you don’t apologize for it this could be a bad situation instead.”

“She was in pain, mom wouldn’t answer after 3 days, you took her to a salon to have it cut. It’s hair people, it’ll grow back. The child is pain free and back to normal. Sounds like mom is going to be taking care of partner for a while and is not in a good emotional state.”

“As long as Lexi was fine with it, you are not a jerk. And honestly, even if she wasn’t fine with it maybe not a jerk because matting can actually be dangerous to your health.”

“You gave the mother three days to react and even detangle-experts need to give up sometimes. It would have be pure torture for your niece to sit for hours to detangle her hair.”
