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.

Tips to share with other moms on how to grow their hair

Welcome to my blog and be sure to keep it for healthy hair care tips and tricks. Flat twist-out Afro I did another thing, installed flat twists as my low manipulation style for a week or so and the flat twist-out turned to an Afro. I love wearing my Afro or may be I love it because my styling game is 👎👎👎. Either way we all agree that afros are cute. Bun & bangs. First, I uploaded a tutorial on Facebook and Instagram, be sure to check out. It’s an easy to achieve style. Got no time to figure out how style your hair? Well, this style is for you. Bun & flat twist Same bun but flat twisted the bangs & the look gave me some ‘ hey there, praise and worship & good gal vibe.’ It’s an official look, easy to achieve style & a less than 5 minutes style. Low puff & twists. I live for high puffs but side puffs are okay too. I loved the look & the twists were, “hide my forehead thing.” Hello fellow gals with a big forehead & heart. Twists & tucked twists. Turned the low puff to chunky twists and pinned them. For a moment I thought I had locs but they don’t look like locs though. The IT style. How gorgeous is this style? I would love to know which of the styles is your favorite.
