Hair Days with Daddy!

A common phrase is "Daddy's Little Girl", which is usually the case. Daddy's are usually their daughter's first love. Every moment that is spent with dads by their daughters are memorable moments that they will forever remember. A father's relationship with his daughter is very important, because a daughter can learn so much from him.
In society we are accustomed to our little girls hair being done by moms or at least a female figure. However, women of today are career women, or maybe even just a busy mom or wife. Therefore, we are now seeing more cases of fathers that have to step up to the plate to take on parent duties one of the most popular duties is fathers styling their daughter's hair.
Some dads may feel frustrated at the thought of having to do his daughter's hair, while other dads may feel like hey if a woman can do it so can I. When asking around I found that 8 out of 10 dads are left on a regular basis to have to get their children ready. Some dads might just take their daughter to the salon and some may naturally know what to do and go for it. One dad told me that he doesn't mind at all having to style his daughter's hair. He said the easiest hair style to him is two "Minnie Mouse Puffs" as he called them. When asked if he prefer to do it himself or take her to someone he stated that "It's not that difficult, so it's nothing I can't handle on my own." Some dads may have these task down and some may not be so good at it, I am sure their are situations were the daughters hate it, however, little girls don't want to crush their dads feelings, so they just go with the flow.
My suggestion to dads are to try out different techniques and have fun while doing so. Try a simple style such as one ponytail or maybe two and accessorize it with cute hair bows and/or ribbons. Your daughters will get a kick out of the outcome and you can make it fun and exciting for her, but most of all you will be able to prove that their are really dads out here that can handle the task, but most importantly it will be some of the most memorable times you spend with your daughter.

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…

The Struggles of a Transitioning Mom

As a mother we are always busy doing something; rather it's working, possibly school, work, house chores, caring for our children, and the list goes on. In the midst of doing all of these things it can sometimes be difficult for us to take time out for ourselves to do what we need to do just for us.
      Nevertheless, these past two and a half years of transitioning to natural has been very difficult for me. For starters I was natural up until my senior year in high school which was back in 2002. I decided to get a perm that year and I can honestly say that I regret it. Before having children I would visit the hair salon every two weeks for a new hair style which meant I had no maintaining to do.
      However, after having my first daughter, doing research, and learning how to maintain natural hair I became fascinated. I began thinking about how I was preaching to her about leaving her hair in its natural state and learning to love it, but then one day she said "Mommy…
