"We're doing her homework the other night and [Nahla] goes, 'Mom, I'm scared to tell you this, but touch the back of my head.' All her hair, which is past her shoulders, has shrunken up into a tight ball that feels like matted fur," recalled Berry at the time. "I can't even get my finger in it, and I'm pulling and she's screaming."
Berry tried to "stay calm" and helped her daughter put conditioner in her hair to try and work it out — but "30 minutes later" it only got "tighter." So she had to "shave it off" for her, explaining that Nahla was then "bald in the back" after the incident.
"She was not cool with that, but it was our only option. But now she gets it," Berry said. "I was like, 'First of all, maybe you'll let your mother help you. And second of all, you learned you gotta brush your hair. Every day, you gotta brush your hair.' "
