It’s a bitter-sweet moment when your 12 year old decides she’s old enough to wash her own hair. You almost feel irrelevant. Well, that’s how I felt when The Kid decided she’s “big enough”. Being the over-protective single momma, I stood beside her, taking pics and guiding her along the way. Thought I’d share her (my) proud moment.
She shampooed with Tresemme Naturals. It has a lower sulphate content than most. If you can suggest a sulphate free shampoo, please comment below.
Then she mixed her own deep-conditioner – Tresemme Naturals Conditioner (I personally love this stuff), a teaspoon of raw honey and a drizzle of castor oil
|Combing through the deep conditioner. She asked for my help with this part 🙂|
|I absolutely love that her natural hair is growing healthy. Note the relaxed bits?|
After she completed all of the hard work, momma blew out her hair and then flat ironed it.
|The end result|
I sectioned off one side and flat-twisted it halfway to create this style.
|She was rather quite proud of herself, as was I.|
She cannot wait to “rock her fro” in December. That’s the due date of her BC (big chop – cut off all the relaxed her).
Thanks for viewing. How do you maintain your child’s hair? Do you have any suggestions or methods we could try?
