I get a lot of emails asking me what the best product is to define curls. Now, it’s important to know that what works for my daughter, may or may not work for your child.
I have used a lot of products. Mixed Chicks, Curly Q’s, DevaCurl, and we’re still experimenting. While I like certain things about each of these lines, I recently got to try Blended Cutie Down & Out styles and I was amazed! This is *the* best product for defining my daughters curls. Not only were her curls defined and frizz free, but her hair was soft, and moisturized. The best part about this product? I let A go to bed with her hair all out, no satin bonnet, no satin pillowcase. She is a wild sleeper, so normally when I do this she wakes up with her hair in different directions, a little tangled up, etc. Well, not this time! She woke up and her hair looked great! Very little frizz, it was still soft and moisturized. I didn’t add anything to her hair. I put a bow in and she wore her hair like that the rest of the day. You can view the entire Blended Cutie review on our blog.
Wow, to that anonymous comment. I actually read the HGH blog and love it, specifically because she seems to relish caring for the beautiful hair on BOTH of her daughters heads!It isn't fair to project your own attitudes onto someone else.
HGH morther spends a ton of time on both of her girls hair. I think it's unfair to even put the girls in that position anonymous. She's a mother who loves doing her daughters hair, why should letters and numbers matter. It's obvious from her blogs and pictures that she spens a lot of time on making her girls hair beautiful.
I don't think the girls notice whose getting worked on longer. What they do notice is that their mother loves them, and spends a ton of time on their hair.
If your really so curious on how the girls feel about it man up and email her. Don't be a wimp and hide behind anonymity.
Oh Anonymous. Oh Anonymous. I chose not to publish a similar comment you made on Happy Girl Hair for many reasons.
Despite your perception, more time is spent on hair with my daughter who has beautiful 4b coils. I find that the tighter the curl, the more gentle, loving care the hair needs. Little B is blessed to have gorgeous hair that can hold box braids, twists, piggyback braids, veil styles, or cornrows perfectly. It can also be worn joyfully in a rounded afro, a chunky afro, or fabulous wash and go. Much time, effort, and love is lavished on her and her hair. And believe me, she feels it.
My other daughter's hair is 3b type. While it still requires a gentle hand, it takes about half the time to style. If she could, Little R would choose to wear 1 puff or 2 puffs every day. Okay, she might choose loose hair every now and again for variety, but that is about it. I have to try to convince her to let me do something else.
Please understand that everyone brings their own perceptions, filters, and experience to everything. I can't control how someone chooses to view my blog or what they choose to say about about it. I can however, keep doing what I'm doing with the knowledge that I'm doing my best, my girls are loved and well cared for, and they are happy. They are twins and we are forever aware of fairness and time spent with each, and they are hyper-aware of that. They aren't complaining. I'm satisfied with that.
Have you noticed that on that site happygirlhair i believe is the name with causcian woman with 2 black kids doing their hair. Well Little R and Little B i think is there names, well it seems that more attention and care is done to the one with the looser style curls(R)who has 3ish hair versus (B) who has 4b hair. I was just curious if the daughter noticed this when her mom is doing their hair.
gosh! I might have to get a jar of this for myself!!!
Little A's hair is so fly. I hope my hair is just as gorgeous when it grows up!
adorable little girl – what beautiful hair!

My goodness, what a cutie pie! Her hair is gorgeous, just look at those curls. 🙂
