Kayley Olsson is a hairdresser who works in Iowa, in the United States. She recently refused to a request of one of her clients and decided to tell her story on Facebook. Check out the video above for the full story!
It was an ordinary working day when one particular client walked through the door of her salon. A young woman sat down in her chair and asked her to cut all her hair off. Kayley refused… and this is why!
The result of depression
The young girl who came into the salon that day had dirty, damaged hair full of knots. Whilst she was trying to understand more about how this happened, Kayley found out that the young girl had been suffering from depression for years and it was now time for her class photos.
Moved by her story, Kayley decided to help the young girl and set about taking care of her. After 13 hours of work, the young girl’s hair had finally taken shape and looked so much healthier and better. The young girl left the salon with a perfect hairstyle and a new friend.
A heartbreaking message
The story of this encounter spread quickly, and Kayley finished her narrative with a strong message: ‘MENTAL HEALTH is a thing, it affects people all around the world and of all ages!'
She went on to warn parents: 'PARENTS take it seriously, don’t just push your kids off and tell them to get over something they legitimately can’t.’
