Two little girls with crazy long hair. I’m jealous of both of my daughters hair. One has thick, straight hair while the other has long beachy curls. Let me tell you, if I could french braid, their hair would be in all sorts of crazy cute looks all the time.
Almost every night the two of them pin me down in a chair to play with my hair. It’s the longest it has ever been so they like putting all kinds of bows and clips in it. My oldest makes me snaps selfies when she is done so I can see how beautiful it is. I love it when they do it too, but that is because it’s like getting a scalp massage every time they play. That’s my favorite part of going to a salon too, having someone play with my hair. You get that tingly feeling all over your head. Then, the brush snags or you get snapped with a band, and it brings you back to reality.
We recently got the new Goody Clean Radiance copper bristle hairbrush. The copper bristles help reduce the natural buildup that can accumulate over time. Less build up mean healthier hair*! My oldest has the thickest hair I’ve ever seen, and that’s saying a lot because my older sister used to make me brush her hair for a penny and she had crazy thick hair. I’m glad I don’t have to bribe my kids to do it. They volunteer. Any build up in her hair, and it becomes unmanageable.
I have to teach the oldest to be careful with her sisters hair, though. Curls can get messy, and we don’t want to start a fight. Not long ago, Peanut wouldn’t even let someone touch her hair. She still gets testy with me if I try and put it behind her ear to keep it our of her face. My next mission is to teach them how to braid. Maybe my mom can teach us both how to french braid, and we can take turns practicing on each other.
I hate to admit it, but all this girly stuff like braiding each others hair makes me giggle with joy. Call me a cliche, whatevs. I look forward to hair playtime with my girls. I think my hair might be growing faster because of it, or maybe falling out faster, who knows.
