A woman has said she was nearly moved to tears when a kind male doctor braided her hair during surgery to avoid cutting it off.

The lady narrated how she woke up to find her hair neatly plaited only to find out the surgeon, who has daughters, took his time to plait her hair.

India Dionna said, in a Twitter thread, that she checked into hospital for a head surgery and her hair was left "au naturel".

India was put to sleep with only two braids on her hair, but when she woke up there were six and they had bands at the ends.

She was confused and kept wondering just how her head was unshaved and so neatly done.

When she went in for her post-operation appointment the surgeon bragged about his handiwork and that caught her by surprise.

“While removing my staples he said ‘your braids look better than mine. I hope I did not do too bad’ and I was like excuse me? You did my hair? You could tell he was so proud to tell me,” India narrated.

The surgeon said he had grown accustomed to doing his daughters’ hair for years and that is where he learnt his skills.

He added that he also used staples to avoid damaging the patient’s hair and to perform the procedure seamlessly.

Dr Jewel Greywoode said:

“When I have to make incisions in the scalp, I normally do my best to move hair out of the way to avoid shaving the head and, when long enough, braiding is the best method."
