Man Learns to Style His Wife's Hair after Her Stroke and We're Crying

Talk about a real-life version of The Notebook.

elderly man learns to style wife's hair after stroke

Every so often, something on the Internet goes viral for reminding us that love isn't about grand gestures or long speeches, but about the little things that people do to show they truly care. There was that tweet about a husband rearranging the living room and taking photos of his wife so she could get the perfect angel boomerang. There was that Facebook post about the little things that a woman's husband does every day to make her life easier. There was that heartbreaking photo of a woman with dementia who no longer recognizes her husband but knows she is safe with him.

Now, there's a new video that poignantly shows that real love is quiet and constant.

A week ago, Raigen Kelly, a stylist in New Braunfels, Texas, posted a video of an elderly man who is learning how to style his wife's hair, after a stroke left her unable to do it anymore herself. Watching him carefully listen to every step, from which products to use, to how to blowdry so she gets the right curl, is absolutely beautiful.

"[It's] truly one of the best things I have been able to witness in my life," Kelly wrote in the caption to the video, which has now been shared over 119k times. "Brought tears to my eyes..what an amazing man and what a lucky woman."
