Welcome to “Baby Big Hair Blast” where we highlight BIG HAIR artisans and their muses:) Up next to the BBH stage is Mommy Charisse and her GORGEOUS daughter Sanai. Mommy Charisse submitted a froto for our Fan Page and I LOST IT! What in da world? Do ya’ll see this baby’s beautiful red BIG HAIR?!?! OO-TO-THE-WEE people. Well, Mommy Charisse agreed to “chat down” with us for the 411 on alllllllll that BIG RED hair. Let’s get to it shall we??
BBH: What is your hair washing routine?
Actually, its a 2 days process. I wash Sanai’s hair at night w/ Taliah Wajiid or tea tree shampoo. I use Taliah Wajid conditioner or oddly enough, Pantene Relaxed and Natural [BBH: o_O huh, you dont say?]. I comb through w/ a big tooth comb into a bun on her head and cover w/ a plastic cap, that she sleeps in. The next morning, I rinse out conditioner and style. [BBH: Now THAT is an idea. We just pre-poo the night before washing…hhhhmmmmm]
BBH: What do you find are the challenges for styling Sanai’s hair and how do you over come them?
Sanai’s hair is prone to frizziness and tangles. The tiniest bit of moisture in the air, turns my baby’s hair into a FRO! [BBH: Just let her (insert Mariah Carey finger) FROOOOOO GLOOOWWW!] I try to keep her hair 2 strand twisted at night to maintain her curls and decrease the tangles. [BBH: This is also a must for us for BIG HAIR styles]
BBH: How do you entertain Sanai when styling her hair?
I usually have a movie on or the Disney channel! Occasionally, Sanai helps me comb through her hair and twist it. [BBH: One find day lawd….ONE FINE DAY!]
BBH: What are your fave products these days?
I use Taliah Wajiid and Miss Jessies products. [BBH: Yes!! TW!! I am way overdue for a Taliah Wajiid Easy Herbal Comb Out Review] I also use an almond oil from Dreads N Headz in Baltimore. [BBH: MD in da’hooooooouse! What ya’ll know about Chuck Brown (update-RIP. Our hearts fo out to the family, friends and fans)?!?! *does the butterfly – oops, showing my age lawd!*]
BBH: How does Sanai feel about her hair??
Sanai loves her hair…although she would like to wear it straight more often. [BBH: I LOVE HER HAIR!! I bet it is supalong and equally gorgeous when straightened, and that color? OHGAA!!]
BBH: Last but not least, anything you would like to share about haircare in general or experiences.
It can be a trying process to find the RIGHT product for YOU…but when you do its amazing how your hair will respond. [BBH: Ye-es!!]
Thanks Mommy Charisse and Sanai for participating!! Now, will there be one? Will one come?? LOL! If this isn’t a poster child for BIG HAIR, then lawd who IS?!?! OHGAAAAAA!!! That sweet angel face, pretty brown eyes, and crown of gloreh set’a fire with all that beautiful red?!?! O_O *thud* Hhhhhhhhh. Just… it’s too much. I’m out. Mommy Charisse and Sanai…
