When it comes to Blue Ivy’s hair, everyone seems to have an opinion.
Many have taken to social media to openly chastise Beyoncé about the maintenance of her daughter’s adorable curls, complaining that Blue’s hair looks unkempt and dry. But during their appearance on "The Ryan Cameron Morning Show," singers Tamar Braxton, Syleena Johnson and Keke Wyatt added their own opinions to the coiffure conversation.
Johnson was the first to sound off on Blue’s locks, comparing the baby’s hair to the trademark style of the late rap legend Ol' Dirty Bastard. “She's giving me ODB,” said the “R&B Divas: Atlanta” star, referring to the rapper's plaits that typically stuck up wildly off his head.
Wyatt, also a member of the “R&B Divas" cast, provided a less biting take on the child’s natural hair. “Ain't nothing wrong with being natural. I got natural, but you still got to grease natural and comb natural and wash and condition and then you won't have the beadiage,” Wyatt said.
Beyoncé fans immediately took to Twitter to knock the singers for their comments on the heiress to Queen Bey’s throne. But Johnson, Wyatt and Braxton are in no way alone in their feelings about the toddler's hairstyle. Jasmine Toliver recently created a Change.org petition to urge Beyoncé and Jay-Z to “properly care for Blue Ivy’s hair.”
The petition reads:
As a woman who understands the importance of hair care. It's disturbing to watch a child suffering from the lack of hair moisture. The parents of Blue Ivy. Sean Carter a.k.a Jay Z and Beyoncé have failed at numerous attempts of doing Blue Ivy's hair. This matter has escalated to the child developing matted dreads and lint balls. Please let's get the word out to properly care for Blue Ivy hair.
Entitled “Comb Her Hair,” the petition has gained more than 1,500 supporters. But it has been largely criticized as an inappropriate attack on a 2-year-old.
