Nobody looks forward to a haircut.

Is that a little girl getting head shaved bald?
oh my gosh, thats not awkward, that is so sad :’(
it was then they realized, the army wasn’t at all like summer camp!
Not sure why everyone is automatically assuming that this is a girl.
Hmph! I could have sworn there was a 666 on at least ONE of you!
Maybe mom or dad have cancer and the whole family is shaving their heads in support?
Wouldn’t it be horrible is the “daughter” is actually a son? Just saying, some boys have long hair
Dad loved to reenact his favorite scene from “V for Vendetta”.
I thought “Full Metal Jacket”
And that’s what happens when you get bubble gum in your hair.
Um…ever heard of lice shampoo? Just sayin. Poor girl.
Two words: Head Lice. It can be REALLY pricey and a giant pain to get all those little buggers, especially with that damn comb and long girls hair. But poor baby, what a SUCKY thing to have happen! Too bad Dad didn’t do the old shower cap and mayo trick first…
I got rid of lice for 10 bucks with butt length hair. My sister had it too and her hair was really long, and it’s super curly. All you need is a lice comb (not expensive at all), coconut oil, vinegar and tea tree oil. And a shower cap. Just vacuum and thoroughly wash couches and beds and anything else your hair touched such as hats and brushes. You may need to do it several times. Then, over night, soak your hair in coconut oil. Lice don’t like it. In the morning, wash your hair with shampoo and tea tree oil. Let sit for 5 minutes. Rinse well. Then, rinse hair with a mix of vinegar and conditioner. Let sit 5 minutes. Rinse lightly. Ring out and towel dry hair. While still damp comb out the nits. The vinegar should loosen the glue and make it a breeze to get them out. Be thorough. Repeat for 2 more days or until gone. It took me two days to get rid of it, my sister 3. Problem solved!
Shaving sounds easier.
Sounds like it would make a good salad dressing.
My cousin blow dried and flat ironed it, that burnt the lice.
After that we combed all the burned lice out
Worst summer vacation visit to her cousin’s house EVER!!!!!! poor thing! :’(
Well the good news is this cuts down on bath time. I’d think if someone was to donate hair, they would have it cut off, not buzzed. but ive been wrong before.
More like “buzz kill”
From now on you will speak only when spoken to, and the first and the last word out of your filthy sewers will be “Sir”. Do you maggots understand that?
Sir, yes sir!
SOUND OFF like ya got a pair!!.. SIR, YES , SIR !
SHOW ME YOUR WAR CRY!!!!!
You don’t scare me… work on it!
The ex wife is picking the kids up in 30 minutes to take them for a portrait photo for the Christmas card. Ooooh,is she gonna be mad???
Dad so wanted to be an Army barber…
I was actually thinking it looks like he isn’t really going to do it, he hasn’t actually taken any off.
same thing I thought – also I he was anything like my dad, if I had laughed at my brothers while they got their haircuts, he would have made me think I was in for the same fate
I didn’t think lice. Don’t they have shampoo for that? I mean this seems a bit drastic! I was thinking more along the lines of a sick family member who lost their hair and everyone else did it too for moral support. On that thought… I would hope it was lice. Although really go for the shampoo!
Lice shampoo costs $10 and for four kids you need $30 worth at least. They probably already have the clippers.
Have you ever spent hours with that little bitty comb trying to comb out the nits? Shaving is so much faster.
yes, when you have kids ‘sharing’ the lice along with all that combing and checking, sometimes shaving is easier.
Secondly, lice have be resistant to some anti-lice shampoos.
But a jar of mayonnaise only costs $3, and is quite effective at removing head lice…
As a girl, I would be devastated to lose my hair!
A jar of mayo may only cost $3, but have you ever actually used it to get rid of lice? I had lice when I was in about third grade. My mom tried everything, including mayo. It only made my hair disgustingly greasy, and I still had the little buggers. It took a few bottles of lice shampoo just to get it through my thick hair, and my hair was only about shoulder length. Then it took my mom hours and hours to comb through it strand by strand, and THEN she had to resort to using her fingernails to drag the nits off of each individual hair. I can see why some parents would resort to this.
I used Mayo on my daughters. Two treatments with lice shampoo didn’t work. However the Mayo did.
my kids had lice when younger (all girls) they all had waist length, very thick, very very curly hair. we had to do three different lice treatments within a month time. it would take us 2-3 bottles of the stuff to put on each child because of how thick and long it was. it would take me 4-5 hours per child to get the nits out. then clean the house and toys in plastic bags and vacuuming. we did it all. they would always end up getting it back. we then tried all the internet home remedies. we finally went to the doctors for stronger medicine. they said there was nothing to do, we had done all we could, and we had made it toxic to use any more medicine on them. the ONLY option left was to shave their heads. the girls cried, i cried, and my husband cried the whole time he was shaving their heads. it was a few weeks later that we had found out it was the school’s fault. they knew there was a lice outbreak and never cleaned the school or vacuumed the floors or did any sort of preventative measures to keep the kids from getting lice back once it was removed from the child. as soon as the kid went back to school, they would just contract it again.
Just realized the dad’s air is shaved too. Ha!
A family that shaves together….
This is why Mom cannot leave Dad in charge for more than an hour (sorry dads)
First I thought, “He’s buzzing the GIRL too?” Then I thought, “Oh dear, must be lice!”
that was my first thought too!
I think he’s just playing a prank on his daughter. If she’s the only girl in that pack, she’s probably had to grow some thick skin. It’s easier to shave a boy’s head than to comb out the lice, but a little girl? I think most parents would make the extra effort. At least my mom did for my sister and me…at least 3 or 4 times when we were kids. She must have been soooo happy when we outgrew the sleepover phase.
Who says this is a girl!??
Hey, that’s everyone goes through at the beginning of a prison sentence. The haircut is not what you’ve got to wary of, notice the other prisoners are sizing her up (or is it ‘him’??).
I hope the person getting the hair cut is a boy – not a girl.
This isn’t awkward, it is just wrong.
The last victim looks like a girl! That is an awful way to deal with lice!
I hope that’s a little boy!
lol! I was thinking lice also!!
ew!!!!! I can’t even tell if that is a boy or girl.
That was when Jimmy realized that mom might not have been completely honest about the type of Summer Camp this was.
In hindsight, she did not really want to look like her brothers.
That’s exactly what I was thinking!!LOL
Toughen up or you are going to get the soap-in-the-pillow-case routine … again.
o m g
I sincerely hope so.
That was my first thought..
If the shaving is because of lice, why commerate the occasion with a photo? If this is for cancer, or if the family is going to a Buddhist monastery then a photo might be nice.
But if they are going after the lice AND they take a pic that’s just weird.
to show them, ‘if you get lice, you get buzzed.’
shaving is sometimes done for other diseases; a long time ago, it was done for scarlet fever.
It was done for scarlet fever to lower the fever. WE have aspirin now.
