The last 6 seasons of The Waling Dead a lot of characters have grown, none have grown like Carl’s hair though. During season 5 and season 6 Jessie Anderson was known to give haircuts to a few characters on the show, like Rick, her son Sam, and her son Ron. Jessie died in the mid season finale and so did our hope of a Carl hair cut.
Redditor SSparkie thought of a reason why Carl might not want his hair cut, and to many it may be heartbreaking. Back in season 1, episode 3 we saw Lori, Carl’s mom, giving him a hair cut. Carl didn’t really enjoy getting his hair cut and shane said “You think this is bad, wait till you start shaving. That stings. That day comes, you’ll be wishing for one of your mama’s haircuts.” To which little Carl replies “I’ll believe that when I see it.” Two season later, Lori died while giving birth to Carls sister Judith.
So the reason some may believe that Carl does not want to get his hair cut is because he misses his mom and her hair cuts. This kind of makes me feel for Carl, and I guess that makes it okay for him to have his hair like that in my eyes. Why do you think Carl keeps his hair long?
