Anyone Remember YouTuber SistaWith RealHair?

I thought of this as well, but she isn’t shaving her hair to make the wig. She has been working on this since 2014, and the wig is almost done. It doesn’t seem likely that she’s been doing this for almost 7 years in anticipation of being ill enough to need to shave her head. But I guess we’ll find out in Dec.
I don't think she's the type to worry that much about illness to anticipate it for years, but funny thing about that is... around 2014 iirc she had experienced serious hair-loss before due to anemia, so that could have been what gave her the idea in the first place. If that's when she started to save her shed hair, then instead of shaving and starting over, she probably wanted to continue to enjoy the hair she still had on her head for as long as she could given what she'd already been through. If (heaven forbid) something is going on health-wise with her, it wouldn't be her first rodeo in that respect. But as you said, we'll see in Dec. I hope everything's all right with her. From what I remember, she's had some rough periods in her life over the past few years.

If she wants to make a wig of her hair and she has the time, energy and nothing else better to do...if she likes it, I love it. What I don't understand is the shaving of her head? She can still wear her wig (by the way is it still considered a wig if it's your hair - this nonsense got me googling the definition of a wig...smh) on top of her braided hair. I have watched her videos but never subscribed as something about her always seemed off putting... I will live vicariously through you all for updates as I hate when YTubers do stuff like this for views.

Finally I too am a member of the nonsensical team that burns their hair...my grandmother always taught us to burn it, same reason for birds or someone getting a hold of it and putting spirits on you. I know it's completely irrational but continue the shenanigans anyway!‍:D:abducted:

She says in one of her updates that she has
had a desire for short hair for some time now.

I think two things:

1. She wants to let go of her hair for spiritual reasons because she believes it’s attached to trauma she’s gone through in the past couple of years.

2. She wants to rock a baldie for attention.

Could be both. She has interesting ideas about things like a few years ago when she was on a weight gain journey and drinking sweet potato smoothies - because she said that she felt like she looked emaciated....gurl please.

I remember the bolded. :spinning: She has always been a little bit off.

But after hearing that she’s trying to go full time with YouTube, I think it’s probably #2. I think Youtubers get more subscribers and engagement when they’re on a growth journey, and they have more material for content.
