Social media users flocked to the comments section of The Neighborhood Talk’s post with a ton of reactions to the viral clip.

“The most beautiful thing about this is she will have his spirit with her at all times,” wrote one person.

“I’m at such a loss for words. This is so special, sad, and beautiful at the same damn time. Wow,” a second user commented.

Before haters could even think about posting something negative, a few people stepped in to defend the mom’s beautiful loc tribute.

“Y’all be wearing some random ladies hair from the Philippines, so why cant she wear her sons,” wrote a third user.

“Ppl get weave/wig installs and never question where the hair comes from so i dont wanna hear nothing about this,” a fourth added.

According to her Facebook page, @BriNaptural, real name Bri Harvey, is a loctician based in Raleigh, North Carolina. She’s been servicing clients in the area since January 2020.

“My mantra is to have each client leave the chair with more pride in themselves and their crown. Continuing and leading you to a healthy loc journey is my top priority,” a statement shared on her website reads.
