Oweee!  Well, we had a ton of fun  during the Frotective Challenge.  It also was a great time of sharing among all the BIG HAIR artisan mommies (shout out to ma’gurlz!!).  One the coolest tips I learned was from Mommy Megan of Hair-Raising Adventures called “Zig Zag Banding”.  OHGAA  It’s genius!  Generally speaking, Banding is the technique used to stretch hair.  There are many o’bloggers that use this technique.  In fact, Beads Braids and Beyond has a lovely post on Banding that I often share with our readers and has a permanent place in our Hair Guide.  But honestly, Banding with numerous bands/ponytail holders never worked for us.  Maybe cuz I never invested in a ton of holders to do it the right way *shrugs shoulders*. When we do stretch hair, its typically through twisted styles or Ghana Plaits with weave thread.  BUT THIS RIGHT HERE!?! Oh I can get down with this, TRUST.

ZIG ZAG BANDING – Quick Overview

Sombodeh turn to you neighbor and say, where my hose at?!?!? LOL!  I jus’ playin. But on the real, you need tights or hose to cut into 1 inch or so circular strips.  Now this right here should make you go IN!!! Do you realize how many strips you can get out of a pair of adult hose or tights??  No more purchasing tons those “good” ouchless bands  so not to snag your baby’s hair.  This is a cost effective alternatice for stretching. Megan used old tights of her daughters.  Tights/hose are PERFECT for BIG HAIR. The lycra is smooth, stretchy and wont snag the hair.  Heck, since the Challenge I’ve been using strips of hose as ponytail holders, mmhhmm.  Check it:


In this pic I double wrapped the hose first, due to how much it stretches, then wrapped at the base. VIOLA!  You have a “not so tight” pony that can stay in her hair without pulling or snagging; the grip is just right.  BBH’s hair doesn’t dry out at the base either.  Anywho, stay with me…. The Zig Zag Banding  steps are easy:

  • Cut hose/tights into 1 -2 inch circular strips (see my above pic)
  • Wrap the base of the pony a few times, similar to how you would a rubber band
  • When the base is secured, keep sliding down in the same wrapping fashion until the pony looks like this:

  • Next, gently remove after desired time or once hair has completely dried and you’ll get this:

GLOREH!!!  OHGAAAAA!  I love this.  Separate those bad boys for a “twist out” look. You can also wrap the knots closer together for more smoothed/straighter hair and from there getsa stylin.  At any rate, you’ll be amazed at the how much those little strips will strecth, plus, you can REUSE THEM!! Get you some fun color tights and you can band with style hon!  You could even make colorful snag free headbands from stretched strips- prolly wanna work with adult hose/tights for that though so not to be too tight on ur baby’s head (thank me later).  I can not wait to try Zig Zag Banding on BBH, but just HAD to share in the meantime!!  Check out Mommy Megan’s original  Zig Zag Banding post here, which has more amazing pics and  an instuctional video.  This  ^^^ will get cop’t, PLEASE BELIEVE IT.  Send pics if you try it. EEEEEK!

Go’Head Baby!

Welcome to “Baby Big Hair Blast” where we highlight BIG HAIR artisans and their muses:)  Yeah I know, said we’d  be down for a bit, but I got the “can’t helps its”, LOL!.  Up next to the BBH stage is Mommy Lakeyta and her yummy lil’Man Man Kenneth… O_O?!?!?!?  OWEEE! Seriously, do they come any sweeter? Golly. Well “anybody that know me” knows I love me some Boy BIG HAIRZ.  So you already know I had to get the deets on this here BABY!  We had the opportunity to do just that when I chatted down with Mommy Lakeyta to get the 411 on that sweet little face.  Let’s get to it shall we?

BBH: What is your hair washing routine?
Kenneth gets his hair washed every 2 weeks or as needed.  [BBH: Whomp ‘der it is!]

[BBH:  Just let your FROOOOOOOO GLOWWWWWWW!]

BBH: How do you keep Kenneth’s hair moisturized?
Kenneth’s hair is moisturized with Carol’s Daughter Hair Milk everyday or when its not styled…

BBH: How does Kenneth feel about his hair?
He loves it. He says he dosen’t want a hair cut, and he likes it down when he takes pictures. Most of all he loves the attention his hair brings.  [BBH:  Oh yes!  BIG HAIR commands attention! Sometimes too much attention when folk think they can be all up in your baby’s hair, massaging scalp n’junk, and have the nerve to smile at you when they’re doing it, as if its FUN or something?!?!?  WHO DOES THAT?!?! HHHHhhhhhh.  Sorry…..had a moment. Back to your frotastic baby *criss cross apple sauce*…]


[BBH:  Aweee, such a handsome thang:) ]

BBH: Fave styling products these days?
My favorite products to use are Carol’s Daughter products. We use all of there products, even their lotion, it really gives you that natural look. This curl-perfecting collection contains everything you need to make your coils soft and shiny, easy to manage and frizz-free. Give your curls the nourishment it needs. [BBH:  OWEE!]

[BBH:  Lawd I could just EAT HIM UP!]

BBH: What are your thoughts on cutting his hair?
Sometimes I wonder about cutting it, everyone tells me not to cut it and with his career is going so good, I think I’m going to wait untill he is older and the time is right.  [BBH:  OHGAAA noooooo!  Just let it be.  BIG HAIR is the answer, let it be *high note with Mariah Carey finger* eee-e-eee!]


 [BBH:  BIG HAIR will make ya… JUMP JUMP! Uhuh, Uhuh…  LOL!  showin’ my age lawd, SMH…]

BBH: Last but not least, anything you would like to share about haircare in general, styling and/or experiences. Kenneth has natural curly hair and Carol’s Daughter  4-piece collection is everything you need to style your child’s hair and keep their coils shiny and beautiful. The perfect essential oils and butters are blended together to make this ultra-moisturizing set the secret to a happy styling experience—for the both of you. [BBH:  Daaaang, can I get you to plug my blog?!?!?  Making products sound all delightful like!!!]
