Another pic of my daughter’s hair

Happy Friday everyone

Thought I would share with you a pic of my 8-year-old daughter’s hair.  The pic was taken a couple of weeks ago soon after removing her braids.  Her hair is natural.  In the pic it has been detangled but not yet washed.

I keep her hair braided most of the time.  She is in braids during school terms and then during holidays I let her wear her hair out.  I keep the braids for eight weeks at a time.  I have been caring for her hair this way for 4 years now.  I’m often asked how I am able to preserve her hairline when she gets braids so often.  My answer is that I am particular about how her braids are done.  She has been braided by the same person ever since she started getting braids four years ago.  I am also particular about caring for her hair and braids.  While her hair is in braids I wash it weekly and moisturise with braid spray daily.

I have written a few posts about my daughter’s hair.  See them below:

    Honestly this is just to ask for some advice. Today is the 16th of August and I have a family gathering in September holidays(around the 20th) and I have to have a beautiful hairstyle. I have dreads(but not the long ones and they aren’t locked) but I really want to look pretty soon!! Should I do braids tomorrow or wait till the 20th? If I do them tomorrow, won’t they look old by the September??

      I’d say wait until shortly before your event so that they still look their best. I suggest having the braids done about 5 days or so before the gathering. That way by the gathering they would have loosened and you will be able to style them if you want to.
