Apparently if you braid or plait your hair and it curls like this at the ends, it means it’s healthy. I’ve been snipping away at her ends a little bit every time I’ve braided them over the last few weeks and this week I styled her hair and the end of every plait curled perfectly. Scissors go bye-bye for a few more weeks now. It was definitely a very satisfying moment for me. I suppose I must be doing something right!
I love her hair, I love the way it curls, I love the colour, the feel, everything. I’ve got hair envy and I am not ashamed to admit it. She has beautiful defined curls at the back (type 3 hair) and a crazy frizz bomb on the top (type 4 hair). I suppose it doesn’t take a lot for me to be envious at the moment because I just want hair!
I need to improve my braiding skills for sure but since I only learnt to cornrow last year (I know, it’s shameful) I’m not going to bash myself too much. I never want to do the kid’s hair too tight because I know that pain from when I was a kid. I don’t want to inflict that on my own kids if it can be avoided. Unfortunately, my daughter seems to be tender headed. If I even touch a brush in another room I think she winces!
I hope this journey I’m on helps me to love my hair the way I love hers. Mine is completely different so I can’t make direct comparisons and I know it’s not healthy to do that. Every curl on every girl (and boy) is unique and beautiful.`
Anyway, I just wanted to say I love my girl’s fro, that’s all.
Let’s keep growing together!
