How do you making wash days, styling and plaiting easy and fun.
So my daughter and I use this as a bonding experience, I ask her how her day was? We talk about what I’m going to do to her hair. I give her an opportunity to choose her best style from options I provide.
Sometimes I need to take photos of her hair and she loves the photo shoot experience. We generally make it playful and relaxed. Some other times we need breaks and then get back to it. There is some YouTube and TV involved as well lol.
The struggle with caring for your hair and hers.
I don’t find it overwhelming at all. I tend not to wash our hair on the same day so I schedule mine and hers on two separate days to make it easier. I love braiding, plaiting, etc so it’s quite therapeutic for me
Lessons learnt from your girl’s hair journey
I’ve learnt that caring for your hair will allow it to thrive and flourish. She had a lot of balding as a baby but with care and nurture, they filled out and grew nicely and evenly
What you would have done different
There was a week I allowed someone else do her hair when I was really busy and they damaged her hair. I would never let that happen again.
