"She got to the point where she felt so down and so worthless she couldn't even brush her hair, she told me she only got up to use the restroom", hairstylist Kayley Olsson wrote on Facebook.

A hairdresser has helped a teen battling depression who felt "so worthless she couldn't even brush her hair".

Touched by the young girl's plight, the hairdresser refused to shave off her hair and instead spent 13 hours fixing it for her instead.

Kayley shared a before photo of the young girl's hair as well as two after photos that are absolutely stunning.

But, even better than that, the cut went down a treat with the one person who really matters: the girl.

Kayley took to Facebook this week to share the story of a very special appointment.

"Her last words to me was "I will actually smile for my schools pictures today, you made me feel like me again"'".

"She got to the point where she felt so down and so worthless", Olsson wrote on Facebook, as Allure adds, "she couldn't even brush her hair, she told me she only got up to use the restroom".

The teenager starts back at school in a couple of weeks and was attempting to fix her hair for school photos. At the end of the day I want this to be a lesson to people.

"I was heartbroken. I know what if feels like to feel worthless and depressed".

"After being here 8 hours yesterday and 5 hours today we finally made this lovely girl smile and feel like she IS worth something!"

"I've gone through that feeling of being worthless and depressed and not having anyone there", Olsson said.

And earlier this year, we also revealed all the signs of depression to look out for in yourself and others. PARENTS take it serious don't just push your kids off and tell them to get over something they legitimately can't.

Despite her positive outlook, Olsson said that the task was not an easy one for herself or her young client.

"You did a attractive job". When she walked in she told us to just cut it all off, she couldn't deal with the pain of combing it all out. The National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) reports that in 2015, almost one in five us adults dealt with some kind of mental illness in the past year, and 16.1 million adults (roughly 6.7 percent of the entire USA population) experienced at least one major depressive episode in that time.
