Celebrity mom Ayesha Curry was told she needed to spend more time styling her daughter’s hair.
According to one online critic, the mother of three with NBA champion husband Stephen “Steph” Curry needs to get a brush and start prepping her daughter Riley’s hair for social media posts.
As previously reported by Dearly, often, an incredible amount of strain is placed upon parents of black children to have their kids’ hair behave and look a certain way in public.
So when a fan openly commented on Ayesha’s eldest daughter’s hairdo in an Instagram comment, the NBA mom quickly shut down the mom-shamer, who wrote, as reported by USA Today:
Lawwd have mercy.
Whyyy don’t you know how to brush them girls’ hair??? Drives me nuts!!! Still love you, but [expletive] Ayesha.
The commenter responded to a video of Mrs. Curry and Riley re-enacting a Progressive “Meat Sweats” commercial.
Curry defended her parenting with a comment of her own. She wrote back:
I don’t make moments happen for Instagram. Moments happen and I sometimes share. I’m not going to doll my children up for perception or anyone’s approval on here.
If that’s what you want to see then this is not the page for you. Real life over here.
The momtrepreneur created a brand based on moments with the family and time in the kitchen.
During a recent “Nightline” interview Ayesha said of her busy life working as a mom:
“I’m like a chicken with my head cut off.”
“There’s always a million and five things going on, and then, you know, on top of that with the kids.”
The mom of 6-year-old Riley, 3-year-old Ryan Carson, and 4-month-old Canon continued:
“I’ve been able to find that so-called balance and be able to pursue my passions and take care of my family.”
The celeb mom said she’s too busy to be concerned about folk’s approval on social media regarding her children’s appearance.
