The teen confined in Olsson about her struggles with depression. How she has always dealt with it, but the previous year, she was unable to even get out of bed.
Olsson stated, "I was heartbroken. I know what if feels like to feel worthless and depressed. It was kind of wake up call. We had to help her, It was extremely hard. She cried the entire time we were combing it out."
Olsson said it took two days and several breaks in between to get the teen's hair entirely untangled. "When I got the last knot out of her hair, I looked at her and said 'it's all out' and we cried happy tears," Olsson said. Olsson then styled the teens hair herself and, "When I showed her the final result in the mirror she said 'I am going to smile in my school pictures. You made me feel like me again.'"
Olsson shared before and after photos of the teen on her Facebook page and the post has since gone viral. Racking up 182k likes and almost 73k shares.
