Hair Dilemma Part 2

In the past year I have racked my brain trying to find a quick and easy solution with maintaining and grooming my little diva's hair. Initially I was pretty happy with just a wash/condition and some random style that was easy on my nerves and required very little sitting time for her. In an effort to alleviate the hair styling pain, I took her to the local hair salon to get braids, but $50(plus tip) later I was thinking there has to be a better and least expensive way. The style was cute and stress free however a bit pricey for a preschooler.

By the end of the year we tried braids again, and it was very convenient since the braider made a house call. Although I was pleased with the braider's work, my poor child's scalp was being tortured. The braids were obviously too tight so we had to call the braider back for a redo! I pray my child does not hold me responsible for my missteps as a mommy. After this fiasco, I tried the local beauty school because I thought for $8.00 it was worth a try. This visit lasted over 2 hours with the fidgeting, crying, blow drying and flat ironing. Thanks to the the other stylists for loading her up with gummie bears and candy canes. It appeared to be a nice gesture but I know it was pipe down the noise a few notches. My poor child fell asleep in the chair as her hair was being flat ironed. In the past few weeks I have felt so much guilt for torturing this child with all of these procedures. I will say it for her, "ouchie"!

In the new year I resolve to find a better way of maintaining her hair so it stays healthy and kid friendly. After many referrals to natural hair salons, we are scheduled this weekend. I will keep you posted on how this goes and definitely take pictures for our hair diary!
