As promised I am back with an update on Mimi's hair. She turned 6 months old on the 22nd of June which was also my Hubby's birthday. so double celebration!! God is good!
I treated her to a photo shoot-
For the shoot, I gave her hair a twist out, braided her hair into big braids earlier in the day with the Savvy Chic Whipped Shea butter and then loosened it just in time for the pictures.
My Mimi's hair is doing quite well, I still shampoo it once a week on Saturdays, we moisturize and seal daily with the Eden Body works Berry kids hair pudding previously listed in this post-HERE and seal with the Savvy Chic whipped Shea butter.
I found that the back of her hair was threatening to start thinning out because of friction of her rubbing her hair against the pillow though the satin pillow case slowed down the process a whole lot, so I swung into action and decided that leaving her hair out will only increase the chances of friction and dryness- cue protective styling!!
During the week, we section her hair and put it in little buns especially the back, I can even leave the front and sides out but the back must be put in a bun to reduce the chances of friction and breakage.
I still hardly use a comb, mainly just finger detangle except on wash day while the conditioner is in her hair then I may use a big comb to help spread the conditioner evenly on her curly locks.
Mimi's hair texture is still largely 'Baby curls' but from the curls they look and feel I think her hair is going to be softer and more manageable than mine, fingers crossed and if not then I will force them to cooperate like I have done with my hair!
Hope you enjoyed the Pictures and have a great weekend!! My next post is a Check In Post- Half the year is gone, I need to know how everyone is faring and motivate those that need it.
This blog is here to debunk the common myth that African hair cannot grow past a certain length, that our hair is difficult and impossible to work with, that we have to rely constantly on weaves and extensions to look presentable, in fact it is here to prove Naija Hair can grow!!
