I have just watched a Brazilian video about this girl on YouTube which shows the following:
~ She has a small but very nice bedroom
~ She has a computer
~ Her mother combs her hair with a wide tooth comb
~ Her hair is blow-dried and then braided
~ She does not seem to like the attention
~ Her friends are shown fiddling with her hair (grrr)
It looks like she lives in a lower middle class area, not a poor deprived area, but I have no idea about social standards in Brazil.
This video also shows another woman with very long hair. There is no hair-cutting in the video but both the girl and the woman are taken to a wig shop and it looks like their hair is being evaluated for quality.
If you want to watch the video, here is the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T8Gdj...eature=related
