'I know I'm going to cry. I always do. But it is a tradition for the baby, so it will be worth it," Alisha John said.
During the ceremony, the baby is placed on objects from his or her family that represent skills that the child will excel at. As the hair is shaved, prayers are said over the child.
She will be held over a dictionary, Bible, a Koasati dictionary for her native language and a softball glove, The Press reported.
Areea's mother said her three older kids were also born with a lot of hair but not as much as their little sister.
Alisha took advantage of Areea's hair this Halloween for her perfect costume.
Areea's hair was the star of her outfit based on the movie "Trolls."
"There were almost no costumes in her size, so I just decided to make one for her myself and we decided to dress her up as a troll," Alisha said.
