Straightening Curly African Little girl’s hair
Though she made it very categorical that she did not like the idea, she eventually gave up protesting and let us have our way with the hair. Actually I had to nurse her while the saloonist did her thing. I was really pleased with the results and could not believe just how long her hair had grown in the last one and a half years; a lot longer than my hair has grown in the last 10 years.
But just 3 days later, it started shrinking and curling again and was back to its original state in no time. Don’t get me wrong, I like how it has always looked, but I was also growing into the new look. For now though, curly will do just fine. I just use a conditioning detangler to make it easy to comb.
