AITA for refusing to cut my hair to make my sister feel better?

I am 16F, my sister is 14F. She has jet black hair, and if you know about hair then you would know that it’s very hard to bleach and even harder to do it right. Well my sister wanted to get platinum blonde hair and she decided to do it by herself. And it did not go well. She ended up completely frying her hair and it fell out and she’s left with chunks of hair ranging from about an inch long to like 6 inches long. My mom took her to the salon to try to do something to it and they decided that the only thing they really could do was to give my sister a blank canvas so they gave her a buzz cut. She was hysterical about it and cried for many hours after. The next morning my mom came into my room to wake me up at 8 and she asked me if I would be willing to also buzz my hair off because my sister said that my hair was affecting her. I have very long hair and it would take literally like 5 years to grow back so I said I wasn’t willing to do that. I offered to tie my hair up and wear beanies when around her or something but that I was not going to cut it off. That sent my sister into another crying fest. I am starting to have doubts about my choice but I really do not want to cut my hair. AITA? submitted by /u/nidpofg to r/AmItheAsshole [link] [comments]
