A baby girl has gone viral and received applause on social media because of how she helped her mother.
The girl often goes to the salon with her mother, who is a hairdresser, and she always plays with wigs.
In the particular video trending on Instagram, the girl was spotted attending to a wig and braiding it like a professional.
Her mother was impressed at her eagerness to learn. The woman said she was so lucky to have the girl as a child.
The mother captioned the video:
“Mommy’s little helper. Thank you for being an amazing daughter. I am so lucky to be your mom.”
The video immediately gained massive traction on Instagram, receiving thousands of likes and comments. Some comments joked that the girl should receive a salary, while others said she was too small to be at a shop.
Mum says it’s not child labour
When contacted, Zainab told Legit.ng that she had never forced the girl to help her. She said the baby was still learning, insisting it was not child labour.
“I think she’s learning because she’s always with me, and she’s watching. She only plays with hair whenever she feels and even when I try to stop her from scattering hair or the attachment, she starts crying. And she can also makes twist on her head but not very tight.”
