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.

Dad Shaves Baby’s Head While Mom Was Sleeping And We Think A Latina Abuelita Had Something To Do With It

Dad Shaves Baby’s Head While Mom Was Sleeping And We Think A Latina Abuelita Had Something To Do With It

Dads, you have to love them, especially when they’re left to rule the house when mom’s away. While they generally try their hardest, some dads can be big kids and the house will essentially remain unsupervised by a responsible adult. This mom learned that the hard way after she handed over the torch of responsibility to dad while she took a little nap. She woke up to find that dad had shaved off the baby’s hair and her reaction is priceless.

This video proves that sometimes you just can’t trust a Latino dad alone with the children.

New mom Jasmin Aileen Valero, wanted to catch up on some sleep after the exhausting task of taking care of her newborn baby. Dad, Joshua Luevanoz, was entrusted with watching over baby Jazlyn, while mom took a little nap. To Jasmin’s surprise, she woke up to find out that dad had shaved Jazlin’s entire head of hair, leaving their newborn looking like a little diaper-wearing kiwi.

Mom clearly didn’t expect to wake up to such a surprise. Suffice it to say, she wasn’t happy.

The Californian family shared the video of Jasmin being given the shock of a lifetime and the internet loved it, except for a few viewers going as far as to call it ‘child abuse.’

Jasmin had only just woke up when Joshua handed her the baby and began filming. Next thing you know, he’s pulling a little blanket off Jazlyn’s head to reveal their newly bald baby. Jasmin’s reaction is one of true surprise or horror if you will. “Why’d you do that?” she asks holding back shocked laughter and tears. Many news outlets have reported that dad shaved the baby’s head as a prank. But if you grew up Latino, you know that in a Latino household, shaving a baby’s head is no prank, it’s serious business and there’s bound to be a group of elders putting pressure on the new parents to rid the child of his or her hair, for the sake of tradition. 

 Behind every bald baby, there’s an Abuelita or tía telling new parents everything about the millenary tradition of shaving the baby’s head.

“Is shaving the newborn baby’s hair necessary for his hair to grow stronger?” 

The Latino tradition of shaving the baby’s hair is true and old. Many call it: pelar, rapar, rasurar or afeitar al bebé. It’s a tradition widely spread throughout many Hispanic countries. I can confirm that it’s a common practice in Venezuela, Colombia, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, Spain, Ecuador, and Mexico. Why do crazy moms, abuelas —and unsuspecting dads as it turns out shave the baby’s hair? According to tradition, the new hair will grow thicker, more evenly, and beautiful. 

Experts explain that shaving a baby’s hair will not make it thicker or change its texture. Baby hair changes depend on the normal development of the child, and his or her genetic make-up. Where this tradition started, I wouldn’t know, trying to find out would be like trying to trace back the origin of ‘el cucuy, ‘nobody knows, it’s just been a tradition for centuries and centuries. There’s no information explaining where we picked up this idea from. But it is, unfortunately for this mom, still a very common practice. 

Latinos aren’t the only peoples who shave off little innocent babies’ heads. Muslims do it too, perhaps this is where the tradition started?

Surprisingly, Latinos aren’t the only people who believe in this magic capillary legend. Shaving the baby’s head on his seventh day on earth is a common practice amongst Sunnah Islamic followers. They believe that only boys should have their heads shaved as “a means to drive them closer to Allaah.” If we keep in mind that many Latino traditions originate from Spain, which was occupied by Muslims for centuries, maybe that has something to do with how all the shaving started.
