Hair raising

I have three daughters (out of four children) so there's always some type of hair situation or conversation going on.

Daughter #1

Daughter #2

Daugher #3

Each of them didn't have that much hair at birth. Their hair was fine and thin, with my second daughter's being a little thicker than the other two and straight. My first and third daughters' hair was (and is) slightly curly.

Since my first daughter (Amber) didn't have a full head of hair until she was about three years old, I was puzzled as to why I've always had so much trouble when doing my second daughter's (Amareah's) hair. I would also fuss at her: be still, turn your head, put your head down, stop it, move your hand... I couldn't figure out what the problem was.

Then one day I said to someone, "I never had this much trouble doing Amber's hair at..." I trailed off. That's because Amber didn't have that much hair at such a young age! Ut oh, my bad.
Miss Amareah at just 3 years old has lots -- and I mean lots! -- of hair:

Although it's a beautiful head of hair it takes quite some time to style and comb, but once it's finished it always looks wonderful.

Now it's time to start styling little Miss Anna's hair...

See that cute little ponytail!?...

Luckily my teenager does her own hair now ...

... and my other child is a boy! ;-)



  1. A beautiful family! You should be proud!

  2. Look at all that gorgeous hair!!!! My kids all have very thin hair and I don't even think I could do ponytails or pigtails in Bella's hair until just this last year (and she's almost 4)!!

    You have beautiful children!!!

  3. Daughter #2's hair looks like mine did when I was that age. :-)

    Boys are easy! Just cut it all off! LOL.

  4. Wow, that is a SERIOUSLY large head of (gorgeous) hair! I love the first wild hair pic lol!

    When I was a kid I had tons and tons of long, frizzy hair. My mom always used this "serum" spray stuff in a pink can but I can't remember the name of it. I also had to put up with the "turn your head, hold still, quit wiggling!" stuff lol. We can't help it mom!

    How long does it take you to do all her braids?

  5. Hey Christine! It has taken me up to two hours to finish a head full of small braids. But it can be anywhere from 30 minutes and up.

  6. My daughter had a ton of hair when she was born, and it just increased as the years went on. By the time she reached 5, I could no longer handle it. She was sitting in my sytlist's chair.


What's up men & women of my world! I am all a-giggle that you decided to comment. You're what make this world go 'round... ya know? This "world." I love you! Smooches. :-)
