A second commenter said: “This is 100% a thing! Italians do it all the time!
A third commenter said: “It’s very common in many cultures. I shave all of my kids heads. And grandkids. They all have amazing heads of thick beautiful hair.”
And another parent commented: “I did this too and everyone lost their mind. But I’m a hairdresser and it actually works.”
