Welcome to “Baby Big Hair Blast” where we highlight BIG HAIR artisans and their muses:) Up next to the BBH stage is Mommy Dezria and her sweet frolicious flower Madison. Now that is a double dose of sweetness right there!!! Isn’t she just a doll ya’ll?!?!? OHGAA and her hair??! What else could you ask for?? Well, we had the opportunity “chat down” with Mommy Dezria and get the goods on that gorgeous baby and ridonklulous hair. Let’s jump right on in, shall we? OWEE!
BBH: What is your hair washing routine?
Madison gets her hair washed twice a week because she swims twice a week. We use As I am, cowash coconut conditioner. [BBH: Oooooo, nevah heard of it, PJ List! *jots down*] It totally works for her hair because it doesn’t have the sulfates, so I dont have to worry about the over drying from frequent shampoos or the chlorine from the pool.
[BBH: Sweet girl…:) EEK! POWAPUFFS!!]
BBH: What do you find are the challenges for styling Madison’s hair and how do you over come them?
Because Madison hair is fine in texture, providing volume to give a fuller effect was an issue. [BBH: We have a lot of mommies wanting that “fullness” for BIG HAIR styles…do tell *criss cross applesauce*] But what I learned to do is a flat double strand twist with the use of a little Kinky Curly Hair Custard to avoid the hair frizzies and allow to air dry. This is especially important because Madison models and the client generally wants them to arrive with clean hair and/or little hair product. [BHH: Really?? They do? that’s one to grown on…]
BBH: How do you entertain Madison when styling her hair?
Madison normally will be playing a game on the Ipad or the laptop. [BBH: Yyyyup! Especially when your doing small twists, can be a life saver!!]
BBH: Fave products these days? As I am Coconut CoWash , Kinky Curly Hair Custard, Naked Leave in Conditioner, Moroccanoil Ultra Light Oil Treatment. [BBH: OOWEEE! Somebody look in the mirror and say PRODUCT JUNKIE, GET BEHIND THEE!]
BBH: How does Madison feel about her hair??
Madison is known for her hair at school [BBH: HA! So is BBH, smh…], she says that her hair is what makes her famous. She refuses to allow me to do ponytails with barrets on the ends. [BHH: Ok THAT is jokes in a basket, LOVE HER!!! Yes Hon! You can’t be taking the focus off of BIG HAIR lawd!!!]
[BBH: UGH! She is so SUPASWEET! I want herrrr:/]
BBH: Tips for wearing BIG HAIR or fave “quick” styles.
Condition and moisturize. Use headbands for easy wash and wear, or hair bands for an easy ponytail or two. [BBH: Yes, love the simplicity, very classic yet quick and easy. A++ Mommy!]
BBH: Last but not least, anything you would like to share about haircare in general or experiences.
Because I am natural as well, I believe that if we maintain our hair without the use of alot of chemicals that it will trully define our beauty. Simplicity is the key. [BHH: Uhp! You and me??!?! We’der… We right der…]
[BBH: Lawd look at this little beauty!!!! YOU^^^ in my pocket RIGHT NOW!! OHGAAA!]
