Shelbey and Gaye, One Year Later...


SweetDrk1, aka Gaye, writes:

Last year, around this time, I very proudly shared a picture of me and my daughter with our TWAs.  Now y'all know I Big Chop annually and it's about that time. So here we are and have somehow survived the--

Me: Shelbey, did you use the last of my Koils by Nature leave in?
Her: *silence*


Or

Her: Mommy how does this Hair Rules work? Do you like it?
Me: *thinking* if I say I don't like it, she will take it. If I say I like it, she will take it. *silence*

 
Lol! I have learned to purchase duplicates, because on her weekend trips home from college, if I didn't, I would be totally on zero.  I love listening to her give out advice when approached about her hair.  She has finally mastered the twist-out and she loves it... she wants big hair and at this rate, I am so sure she will have it. I am so proud that she is comfortable and working it! #teamnatural all day!

In regards to my hair, Shelbey is adamant about me NOT cutting it this year. She got so upset when I said I was going to get a buzz cut. In light of all we have had to deal with... she need not worry about that right now...so uhm, yeah... my hair is long as hell! Hahahahahahaaa!

Great story. My baby girl is leaving for college next month so we're going to have to sit down and divy up the stash. I have the feeling that I'll be making some purchases in the near future because I just know she's going to wipe me out.

I love it my mom and I are natural and we are rocking our natural hair right now with twists outs and braid outs once in a blue moon wash n ' go's. We go everywhere together when I am on break from college. I love that mothers and daughters are natural together and we are each others support team. Everytime I find a new style on curlynikki or naturallycurly.com I tell my mother about it so we could possible try it out. Having and mother and daughter bond is beautiful and priceless

My mom is not natural, like me, but she tends to use the same products I use on my hair, unless it defines curls. She is always trying to copy my hairstyles, i.e., braid-outs. Next, I started using Suave Professionals shampoo and conditioners, because they are effective and affordable. She copied that trend, even though she previously thought Suave products were crappy! Later, she told me that she loved the way the products make her hair feel and look! :D

When I started experimenting with coconut oil, she followed suit. Then, I realized that coconut oil alone wasn't working well enough for me, so I started mixing oils together. Afterwards, she started stealing my oil mix to use on her own hair! LOL! Finally, I decided to find a travel-size container and made her her own special oil mix, so she could leave mine's alone. The relationship between some daughters and mothers are funny!

Yay--me and my 14 yr old are also natural--you two look lovely! Since she has length she prefers to be straighten out but every now and then she surprises me and wants to be curly...and her ends still curl so I guess I must be doing something right!

Look at my babies!!!!! Just GORGEOUS!

Great story! Very inspirational since I'm trying to convince my Mom to go natural too (so I can take her hair products!). Gorgeous women with beautiful hair.

Aaah, I LOVE mommy-daughter moments...beautiful!!
Nikki, could you do more features on "older" natural women. My mom's is 59 years old and recently big chopped but feels out of her depth. She currently has braid extensions but told me she doesn't know what she'll do to her hair next because she feels like twists and twist-outs would not be "age-appropriate".

Awwww! U guys are adorable!

I love this article, cause its not only a natural hair journey, but a mother and daughter being able to share their love for each other & natural hair together. Beautiful!
