There has been no shortage of comments regarding the way Beyonce and Jay-Z have chosen to style their daughter, Blue Ivy’s, hair.  The couple have decided to allow her hair to go natural, but some are complaining that their choice is not just a matter of natural vs unnatural but kempt vs unkempt.  The toddler is often seen wearing what many consider to be a natural afro style.  Much of the discussion around the child’s hair has only become more fervent following pictures of the family that surfaced after they returned from spending time in the Hamptons.

Jasmine Toliver, a Brooklyn resident, has now started a Change.org petition requesting that Blue Ivy’s hair be “properly cared for.”  The woman’s post states: “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 Beyonce has failed at numerous attempts of doing Blue Ivy hair [sic].  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.”  The petition was started last week, and so far, it only has 12 supporters.

Krishana Davis, who is an opinion writer for Jet magazine, points out that black hair has historically been a sensitive topic.  She also points out that it is Beyonce and Jay-Z’s decision what to do with their daughters hair, not other people’s.  Neither of the stars have commented on the petition or on the criticism they receive regarding their choices.

A fan of Beyonce’s pointed out in a blog that she has chosen to bring her baby into the public eye which has opened her up to criticism.  The fan believes that Beyonce and her fans should not respond negatively to the criticism as people having an opinion about what others do is just a by-product of being famous.
