A Whole New World of Hair Products!

My 3 year old officially has more hair and skin products than I've had in the last 10 years combined!

I've studied websites, I've watched some videos, I've got some products, I now know what the terms "pre-poo" and "no-poo" mean, but I still feel pretty unprepared for our new daughter's hair.  Somebody tell me it's really not as hard as it sounds!  I must say, though, that I think my Ethiopian daughter's curly hair is awesome and I can't wait to style it!  I have fought my straight hair my entire life, trying to get just a little curl or body, so learning about curl patterns and detangling is pretty fun!


  1. Can't promise it will be easy but you'll get the hang of it!!!

  2. No advice since Amani's a boy but we only wash his hair about every 3rd day and I have to put this shea-butter leave-in conditioner on it. That takes care of things for us! But I keep thinking our next adoption will be a little girl from Ethiopia... so I might be calling you in a few years!!!! :)

  3. Awesome! I had a grad school friend who was adamant that African American women should embrace their hair just as it is, do the cool stylings that the white folk among us can't. You go girl(s)!


I'd love to hear what you think!
