She was gentle and it looked as if she really enjoyed doing her daughter's hair. And I didn't hear baby girl cry or wince not one time.
My Mom is the greatest person in the world, but I wish she would have taken the time to learn and do my hair instead of throw a perm up in it. And even before I had a perm, I don't ever remember "hair day" ever being a pleasant experience. It was terrifying. Kudos to Sista Chick! Watching her series of videos really opened my mind up because while I'd love to loc my daughter's hair, I really want HER to be able to make that decision. It's great to know that in the meantime, I've got some tips of how to keep her scalp and hair healthy and beautiful without leaving her in tears and leaving me frustrated.
Why I'm talking about "my daughter" as if she exists is beyond me. Don't even give that "eye" y'all, because I'm going to be one of those first time almost 40 Mothers. Hmmm mmmm....
How was your experiences getting your hair done as I young brown girl?
