These Two Friends Shaved Their Heads To Look Like Avocados And Were Awarded With A Year’s Supply Of Avocados And More

“This is the craziest thing I’ve ever done.”

Just three days before the Super Bowl, “Avocados from Mexico” decided to challenge people’s love for avocados and football with a daring friendship test.

A couple of people from Philadelphia were selected for this test. They would have to shave their heads into the form of an avocado. To be specific, they would have to shave a circle at the top of their head and dye that shaved circle brown, to resemble the pit of the avocado. And the rest of their hair would have to be dyed green, to resemble the body of the avocado.

If these people were up for the challenge, they would be awarded with not only a year’s supply of avocados, but with two tickets to the Super Bowl game. However, there was a catch. They each had to convince a friend of theirs to shave their heads to resemble an avocado as well. They were not allowed to tell them that one of the rewards was a pair of tickets to the Super Bowl game. Hence, they’d assume that the only prize they would be given if they completed this challenge was a year’s supply of avocados.

So question was, what were their friends willing to do for a year’s supply of avocados? Even though some of their friends claimed they would do absolutely anything for a year’s supply of avocados, once they found out that they would have to shave their heads, they immediately hesitated and dropped out of the challenge. But then one pair of friends finally agreed to the challenge. It was Sofie Salgado and her BFF who were up for the challenge and made their way to the hair salon for their avocado makeover.

After the avocado makeover, Sofie’s friend was handed over a white envelope, which she probably thought had a certificate that said “You get a year’s supply of free avocados.” But once she opened the envelope and discovered the Super Bowl tickets, she broke down in tears of joy and gave her friend a big hug.

Sofie thanked her friend for taking this risk and shaving her head with her, saying, “Thank you for trusting me. Thank you for being an avocado with me.” And the best part is that this avocado makeover is only temporary. Their hair will grow back soon enough and they’ll be able to look back and laugh at the time they shaved their heads into avocados and went to the Super Bowl together. ??

They both seem pretty happy with their choice.

KEEP WATCHING‼️

A School District Employee Cut A Biracial Girl’s Hair Without Her Parents’ Permission

A School District Employee Cut A Biracial Girl’s Hair Without Her Parents’ Permission

At a young age, Black women are often given the instruction to not allow “anyone to touch your hair” by their mothers or fathers. The direction is often given as a sort of shield. Don’t let anyone touch your hair can mean ‘don’t let anyone ruin the hard work I put into it’ but more underlining is the notion to not allow anyone to make you feel “other” because your hair is different from their own.

A father from Michigan has a new reason for delivering this message to his 7-year-old daughter.

On March 24, Jimmy Hoffmeyer’s daughter Jurnee came home from her school, Ganiard Elementary, with the right side of her hair sheered off by a classmate. According to USA Today, Jurnee’s schoolmate cut off two to three inches of Jurnee’s hair. That same day, Hoffmeyer brought Jurnee to a local hair salon to fix her hair. The stylist cut Jurnee’s hair in an asymmetrical cut and also provided the little girl with free haircuts until her hair finally grew back in length.

All seemed to have been fixed.

Then, two days later, Jurnee returned home from school with her hair cut on the other side.

Jurnee told her father that the school’s library employee cut off the other side. In an attempt to get answers, Hoffmeyer attempted to contact his daughter’s school over the phone. After several calls and no answers, he contacted the police.

According to USA Today, the Mount Pleasant Police Department told the oultet that Hoffmeyer contacted them but never filed a police report. 

Hoffmeyer went onto tell USA Today that an assistant at Jurnee’s school apologized to him for the incident before explaining that the school’s principal would not be able to speak with him until after spring break because he was out of the office. “On April 5, he said he received a call from the principal and was told the librarian would receive marks on her report but did not have the authority to do anything further,” reports USA Today. “Hoffmeyer said he received a call 45 minutes later from the district’s superintendent, Jennifer Verleger, who offered to send Jurnee an apology card in the mail.”

In response to the offer, Hoffmeyer said “An apology card to a 7-year-old who is humiliated and has to be around her classmates like this?”

The Mount Pleasant School District released a statement to parents that claimed “a student asked for her hair to be cut both times, first by a classmate and later by a library employee.”

The released letter was signed by Verlege and stated that Jurnee’s teacher knew that the library employee planned to cut her hair.

Both Jurnee’s teacher and the school librarian apologized for their actions.

Hoffmeyer, who is biracial told USA Today that “his classmate who cut his daughter’s hair and the librarian were both white, but he is trying hard not to make this situation about race. Jurnee’s mother is white.”

“It’s hard to come to any decision when you don’t have answers to why it was done,” Hoffmeyer told the outlet before revealing that he unenrolled Jurnee from her elementary school and she is now attending Vowles Elementary School.

5 Hair Care Products And Routines For Healthier Locs

We’re not quite out of the woods when it comes to the dry air of winter, but with summer rays ahead, there’s no doubt it’s time to keep a lookout for strands. With the threat of the sun’s heat damage just around the corner, we’re concentrating on products and styles that will be the ultimate saving grace when it comes to no breakage and frizzies.

Women on Reddit have been sharing their favorite products, below!

Check them out!

“I love reading what other people do for their hair and taking inspiration (so far I’ve found a great hairspray based on a post in redpillwomen sub) for products, techniques and such. I hope you don’t mind sharing your routine-be as detailed as you like!

Mine : My hair is long (waist, but a good bit below hip length when wet), curly and medium thickness. I also have somewhat problematic and oily scalp. So the longest I go between washes is 3-4 days. By this time, my scalp is oily and my length needs the moisture. But, if I cannot for some reason wash the whole length, I braid it and do a scalp only wash.

In the shower after shampooing my roots, I finger detangle my hair with lots and lots of conditioner, rinse, then add conditioner again and fingercomb through again (this eases out all the knots) and rinse. Afterwards I apply leave-in mixed with some water, maybe a serum and gel or mousse. I typically airdry or blowdry. I have a diffuser but I don’t like using it so much as I feel like it makes my ends split more. I have long bangs, so those I straighten.

Whenever I feel like my hair is getting a bit frizzy, I re-wet it slightly with my palms and reapply my leave-in products. I brush the roots and bangs everyday since they are quite straight, but other than that, the most detangling between washes is gentle fingercombing to separate curls while dry, or when I’m dampening my hair in the morning I might gently fingercomb out some knots. The bangs and roots I like to blast with some hairspray to give some volume and hold.

I don’t use heat on the length (besides blowdrier) and I also don’t dye anymore, as I want to grow my hair even longer. I trim it myself when the ends need it.

Occasionally, I might do a deep treatment. I used to have a schedule, but I fell off it. Need to get back to it!

(This is my first time making a post here, so sorry if I did something wrong!)”- u/deathbypurple

“Hair background: I’m not sure if I have thick hair, or just a lot of it, but the volume is not lacking! It’s got a mind of its own as far as texture – sometimes more wavy, sometimes more straight, sometimes even straight up curly. Length – mid-back to low-back, depending on whether I needed a big chunk of dead ends chopped off. Dyed religiously because prematurely gray is not my style. :'( Because of this dying, my hair is crazy dry. And I live in a really humid climate.

Products!

  • Olaplex No. 3 – I use this pre-shampoo/condition about twice a month. Truly a hair saver. If I could only own a single hair product, it would be this! Makes my “hay” hair soft again, and tones down the tangles.
  • Oribe Royal Blowout – this is a heat styling spray that I use if I’m going to blow dry or use heat styling. Smells amazeballs!
  • Oribe Anti-Humidity spray – To be honest, I don’t know how much this helps, but it makes me feel better about walking out into 90% humidity after I just finished styling my hair. Also, smells amazeballs. 🙂
  • Deva Curl Low Poo – One of the shampoos I alternate between. I don’t use it for the curls/waves so much as I do for the gentle formula and softness it brings out in my hair. Does NOT smell amazeballs, haha.
  • ION Purify shampoo – This is the other shampoo I alternate between. We have extremely hard water (I’ve also gotten a shower head filter, but still hard) and the build up needs washed out. Supposed to be good for after swimming in chlorine too. My hair feels weird after rinsing it out, like it’s dying for the conditioner, but feels SUPER soft after conditioning and drying.
  • Deva Curl Conditioner – One of the many conditioners I alternate between. This is one that I usually use after the Deva Curl shampoo. Smells weird, but softer hair, so I tolerate it.
  • Argan Conditioning Mask – Another conditioner I alternate with. I use the heavy duty conditioners/masks once a week because of the dry texture of my hair. This one is a holy grail hair mask! Smells soooooo good and hair is like silk…or as close as it can get after dying every 6-8 weeks for over 7 years!
  • It’s a 10 Hair Mask – I definitely like this hair mask, just not as much as the Argan one. Smells great – nicely conditions.
  • Oribe Glaze – I use this halfway between my hair colorings. It’s supposed to help bring the shine back like right after you get your hair dyed. I don’t like how it makes my scalp feel after using it…kinda greasy/build-up-y feeling, so that’s why I use it so sparingly. Plus it is heavily perfumed, and while I like it, I have eczema so I’m cautious about what washes down my body in the shower.”- sthutton

“Wow, thanks for taking the time to write such a thorough routine, I really enjoyed reading about all the products 😀 🙂

I totally agree with you on the heatstyling – there is only so much you can achieve on hair without heat. Unfortunately, for me the choice would be either short and heatstyled, or long and naturally curly with all it’s imperfections, as my hair takes heat really badly. I still can feel the damage from straightening some front pieces for my prom haha 😀 And my bangs split like crazy.

Aside from that, and maybe it’s just a lie I tell myself, but I feel like my long curls are a kind of my special trademark feature, something that sets me apart from other women (but I also know it’s a big turn off for some men). I could fight against it with heat styling tools and chemicals, or work with it by trying to make what I naturally have look it’s best.”- deathbypurple

“I co-wash once or twice a week, apply leave in conditioner while my hair is soaking wet and wrap it up in a microfiber head towel. I keep product use as low as I can to extend my time between washes (I hate product build up!) and use whatever generic curl creme I can find on sale to reduce the frizz factor. I never use heat on my hair, so I hope that helps keep it healthy and damage free.

I’m looking forward to my next hair cut, I could really use a trim and maybe some style or layers cut in.”- UnconventionalFemme

“Hi there, I have really thick hair with a light wave, so I need to get it thinned all the time. I get blonde highlights so it can be quite dry. I hate washing and drying it because I’m a mum and ain’t no one got time for that. So I’m maybe twice a week (max) and occasionally once per week. Eek! Dry shampoo is a godsend for mum’s. And the bun trend. Yay. I use a moisturizing shampoo and mask, a smoothing product and just dry it off before bed. Then the next day if I wake up before my toddler I’ll get to straighten it.

I’ve just had a big chop and got a ‘lob’ haircut, which is fun. When my sister (hairdresser) has time she is going to super blonde it and put in a ash blonde toner which will be interesting.”- MrsRobertshaw
