My Little Prince's Hair Update
In January, my son's curls were long and luscious. I shared how after finally learning how to cornrow, I was able to fashion his hair into braided styles, with simple cornrows and the faux hawk being among my favorite looks. Well, a lot has changed since then...
After two plus years of letting it grow, we finally kissed his long locks goodbye!
For his first barbershop visit, he did very well! We asked the barber to cut it low on the sides and in the back, but keep some length on top. I still use water, pure coconut oil and curl activator gel to get his curls to pop. There's just a lot less of them now.
Believe me, I wanted to keep his hair long, but after wrestling with him on numerous occasions to style it, I was done. I saved a lock of his hair so he can see how long it once was, and, if interested, I can teach him how to grow and maintain his hair when he's older.
That's it for my little prince's hair update. How is your little one's journey going?
