I just let the cord dry out completely and put it in a little sealed plastic bag - didn't even think of taking the actual cord off I also have the tags from hospital and the sleepsuit she wore when FOB saw her in hospital (the only time atm btw) - it's technically the second one she ever wore but she was in the first for like two seconds before we needed to do skin-to-skin.
Arianna's hair will be a bitch to manage, but if you teach yourself and her to look after it, it'll be so beautiful
It already is hard . Shampoo 2x a week, deep condition 1x a week, hair lotion every day before bed, detangler/conditioner every morning. It looks sooo nice when I do her hair, but if we go anywhere and she has her hood on when its cold, it gets all frizzy
Woooooow. Well good luck with that. Do you use an afro comb (do they even make baby afro combs?) or just leave it with all the lotions and potions? I can't see the difference after my mom's put the afro comb through hers, so I think she may as well just leave it
My Afro-Caucasian hair just gets washed every couple days - I don't think I've ever brushed this lot of hair and it looks WAY healthier than my old hair did. I just need to brush Bethlouise's at the moment, but I don't wash it at all due to her eczema so I think ours is equally as easy :P
Why doesn't my child have curly hair!?! The only physical traits I assumed she'd have were FOB's blue eyes (I was right) and my curly hair - it's stupidly straight!
I wish Syri's eye had stayed lighter and her hair straight!. its obnoxiously curly.
Her hair is always in her eyes as she'll rip whatever we put in out...even at the cost of ripping her own hair out. I suppose i could fuss over it but i dont feel its a battle worth making.
Im not cutting it yet though as i figure it will be long enough to put into pig tails soon. then i'll start fighting with her haha.
edit: i have italian/french hair..its thick as all freaking hell. (my hair dresser friend jokes i have enough hair for three people) its also frizzy and puffy and evil. only way it looks nice is if its got a ton of mouse, on top of my head or straightened but its such a freakin job to straighten it. next year if i can save up, i'm going to get it professionally relaxed.
Im praying Syri has thinner hair. i'll tolerate the curls as long as it doesnt get as thick at mine.
