Ever since my daughter was born, there has been a constant struggle with her hair. When she was born, she had a head full of hair, and by the time she was nine months, it was handing down her short neck when stretched out while combed. Now that she is five, it has become more than I can handle and I started taking her to my hair stylist to get it professionally washed and flat ironed to make it manageable. But the thing is, it lasts for a few days and then reverts back to her tight curls which are hard to deal with, especially since she is so tender headed.
I was speaking with one of my Twitter friends today, Ms. Ladebelle who is expecting her very own bundle of joy in February, and she commented on my daughter’s hair. I told her that it is a challenge to deal with on the regular, especially since it continues to grow at lightening speed. She gets her ends trimmed every six weeks, at least an inch, and before you know it, it’s grown back! I am at a crossroads with what to do with her hair–I’ve thought of doing braids or twists but with my daughter’s tenderheadedness, and the amount of hair she has, it would be a chore to get this done.
Cubicle Chicks, magnificent mamas, dynamic divas, do you have any suggestions for my dilemma? Is there anyone else out there struggling with the same thing I am? I think I just need some feedback from other sisters who may be thinking of ways to manage her hair that I haven’t thought of.
