All In Due Time, They Do Sometimes Need You When they Get Bigger #tweens

I am often found sighing in disbelief at how big my daughter is now, she is into those tween years and she no longer thinks the hairstyles I used to do in her hair are cool. Apparently “cute” is no longer the proper term to refer to a hairstyle either. The cuter it is, the worse of an idea it is; at least according to my tween daughter. It amazes me at how fast she has grown, both in height and in intelligence. This girl is beyond her years in comprehension and most times I wonder if she is one […]

My Daughter and her Hair

Every morning I ask my daughter if I can do her hair. I miss the days when she would happily let me do pig tail braids, one big braid or two french braids in her hair but those days have passed us  in our mother/daughter lives. It is now the season for hair brushed and kept down. All. The Time. And yes at times she does taunt me with that look of “what you gonna do about it?” when I ask if I can do her hair and she replies no then I pout like a little kid. No. Take […]

Hair Cut Night Was Last Week

I am lucky that I have a long time family friend {may as well call her family} that comes to my house to cut the hairs off the heads of my kids and me. She is affordable, convenient and a great person to have for company when I am around kids all damn day. I try not to keep her too long with my rambling, but it’s hard some times. This past week I had plans for her to cut my hair and the boys hair. I dyed my hair a long time ago and am trying hard to let […]

Haircut Day for the Boys – Before & After

I am a total procrastinator with the boys on getting haircuts for two reasons 1) lack of money and 2) lack of schedule to get the person they prefer to cut their hair here.  The other night everything lined up perfectly; I had the funds and the long time family friend had the open night to cut the boys hair. I had no sports, no appointments and so it was going to work out great.  The boys were in dire need to have their mops chopped. K-man’s hair grows back faster than A-man, as you can see in this picture […]

Who Knew a Haircut Boosts Self Esteem & Mood?

My daughter has always wanted hair like Rapunzel, never getting a real “cut” except one time when she asked for layers. The time she got layers put in her hair, it was a small amount and even then not much was taken off of her length. This was of course by request of my daughter, her hair has always been something I personally feel is her choice to cut, trim or do whatever with – within reason. Last weekend the Princess got her haircut, based on her requests of long bangs, mid shoulder blade length and front layers to look […]

My Daughter Gets Hair Curled

One thing my daughter didn’t get from me was her hair, she has straight sort of thick brown hair. Her father has thin black hair and I have thick, thick black curly hair. Ki always tells me how she wishes she could have curly hair and one day her Dad took her to get her hair curled. After she got her hair curled I was able to see the results in text messaged pictures. All done up with curlers in hair. Not as curly as my natural triplet curls but still quite the wave she has going on. She looks […]

Hana Professional Flat Iron Results

A long time ago I received a Hana Professional Flat Iron and my sister uses it often when she sleeps over for her hair, but the other day I had her use it on my long, thick hair and wanted to share the results. And after about half hour to forty five minutes the results were in and I was ready to go out looking rather cute I must say… So what do you think? Does my hair look good straight?

New Hairstyle Leads to Kids Being Mean #bullying or not?

I recently decided to do my daughter’s hair a new way. This girl has hair down to her bum, gorgeous hair that has only been trimmed her whole life. Princess Ki currently sports a layered hair look but other than that she hasn’t ever had more than a few inches cut off at a time. The other weekend when she was home with me I decided to try a new hair style on her, and she was completely open to the idea. All I did was braid her hair as one big braid and put a hair thing at the […]
