Children's Styles

Our children have ways of expressing themselves in many different aspects. One of the most popular ways is by appearance. Appearance is very important to children of all ages and they love to have their own style. Hair, clothing, and accessories all play a major part in this regardless of their age. My daughter is getting older and I am starting to notice that at the age of four years old she wants to make her own style decisions such as clothing, rooms decor and hair.
I believe that the ideas come from our children being around a variety of different peers or it could possibly be a magazine, book, or television show. In today's society kids are sometimes exposed to a lot, so they are learning faster than normal.
Often times I just allow my daughter to be creative with her styles, but with my help though of course, just her ideas. My daughter attends a private daycare were they wear uniforms and have a strict dress code policy, so guess what our only way to spice it up during the week is with her hair, hair accessories, big bows, ribbons, head bands, etc.
The uniforms is also one of the reasons why I let her have her way on the weekends with her fashion. As parents we have to keep in mind that their are always new styles and trends that they want to try. They see their friends trying something new, maybe it was something they saw in a store, magazine, or television show.
We should allow our kids to express themselves through style, because it can have great benefits, such as building their self esteem, creativity, trail and error...certain styles don't work, and simple rules for fashion.

Natural Hair Mommy Tips!

Oh the joys of being natural! Being natural has several advantages, however for a working mother of two it can sometimes be a major struggle, but that is only on certain terms. For me it’s the thickness and the length that really drags me down which causes it to become a struggle for me.     I transitioned to natural over two years ago when my 9 year old daughter asked me, “Mom, why is your hair straight and mine is curly?” hmmm… that gave me a lot to think about.I like to consider myself as a role model to my daughters. Therefore, making the decision to go natural was easy. I starting by cutting my hair to a very short cut and begin to let it slowly transition from there. I would wear a lot of protective styles such as sew ins, braids, and crochets styles. Two years later I am completely natural, my hair is past the midpoint of my back, super thick, and it is a challenge.    For most of us hair care takes a huge amount of time. When you have to juggle being a mom, work, and thing…

Nightly Routine

Keeping natural hair healthy takes some work, but however it is extremely important. Therefore, I have some simple steps to follow to insure that your little natural will not only get some good sleep, but also wake up to healthier undamaged hair.
     In order for your little one to get a good night's rest you have to be sure that you have removed all hair barrettes and hair ties. Hair accessories can often be bulky and hard which can cause a discomfort to your little one's head. This is also one way to prevent breakage and other types of damage during the night.
     I have found the method of moisturizing to be a great daily process to help your little one’s hair. Moisture is a guarantee that the hair will remain healthy. Moisturizing the hair should be done as often as possible to prevent the hair from being dry and I find it easier to moisturize at night. Moisturizing at night gives the hair time to absorb the products. In order to moisturize I use a homemade mist, y…
