Welcome to “Baby Big Hair Blast” where we highlight BIG HAIR artisans and their muses:) Up next to the BBH stage is Mommy Stacie and her cutiepie guy Cullen.  GAAAAAAAA!  “Anybody that know me” already know how I go >>IN<< on our big BOY HAIRZ!! And what a handsome lil’man man Mr. Cullen IS!!!  HHhhhhhh.  Well, we had the opportunity to chat down with Mommy Stacie and get the mots on that lil’fella and his glorious BIG HAIR!  EEK!  Let’s dig in shall we??

CUTIE!!

BBH: What is your hair washing routine?
We shampoo once a week with SheaMoisture Curl & Shine Shampoo.  I use SheaMoisture Restorative Conditioner once a week and detangle while he’s in the tub.  Once or twice during the week (depending on how sweaty and dirty he is!), I will do a co-wash with the SheaMoisture or Kinky Curly Knot Today.  [BBH:  So, have you ever heard of SheaMoisture??  LOL!]

BBH: How do you keep Cullen’s hair moisturized?
After I wash or detangle, I work SheaMoisture Curling Souffle Gel through his wet hair.  In the mornings, I spray his hair with a mix of water and Taliah Waajid Protective Mist Bodifier and work it through with my fingers.  I use SheaMoisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie to style his hair for the day.  If he needs a refresher during the day, I’ll use the Taliah Waajid/water mix and some of the SheaMoisture Curl & Style Milk.  [BBH:  GURL!!  You ain’t playin over there!! YES!  Love TW products too!!  Hhmmmm, never tried that one:/  ]


^^How can you deal with this much CUTENESS everyday?!?!? GOSH!!!^^

BBH: How does Cullen feel about his hair?
He loves his big hair!  I did 2 strand twists for the first time and after about a day he said “I want my big hair back!”.  He loves to see  people on TV and in person with naturally curly hair like his.  He’ll say “they have hair like me!”.  [BBH: YES THEY DO!!  And pray thee more!!!  Hhhhhhh…. MAN have times changed. We’re getting there…]
kids natural hair Mr. Dapper Dude!

BBH: Fave styling products these days?
I am in love with anything SheaMoisture!  [BBH:  Noooooooo! 🙂] The smell is wonderful and his hair really responds to the products. [BBH: Co-signed!!!]  I’ve tried so many products over the last 3 years and the SheaMoisture lines are the best fit for his hair.  [BBH:  Well its a dag’on WRAP then aint it Mommy?!?!  Give it up for SheaMoisture ya’ll!!]

GET>IN>MY>POCKET!! #whowantsapony?

BBH: What are your thoughts on cutting his hair?
I will keep it big until he decides that he wants it cut.  [BBH:  YYYYYES! *does dance*]  He doesn’t mind the detangling and styling routine and is happy to show off his big hair.  I’ll ask him occasionally if he wants short hair and he always says no.  I’m sure the day will come when he wants it short and I’ll go to the barber shop and cry in the corner while they cut it [BBH:  And I’d be right there eatin’ carpet with you too, TRUST!!!  “Oh Heavenly Fatha NOOOO *echoes*!! ” LOL!!].  It’s his hair and I want him to be proud of it whether it’s short or big!  [BBH:  Aweee, good Mommy:)]

kids natural hair

 

Last but not least, anything you would like to share about haircare in general, styling and/or experiences?
As an adoptive parent, it has been trial and error over the past 3 years trying to come up with the haircare routine that works best for his hair.  I have curly hair, so I was familiar with the basic care of curls, but  I’m still trying to learn all I can to help keep his hair healthy.  I am always critical of myself and I worry that people will judge him based on my styling skills…I don’t want people to look at him and say he must have a white mama!  🙂  [BBH: Awhh Mommy!  Nooooo, never that! Shooo…. They may be asking YOU for the deets  with  allllll that healthy BIG HAIR I see over there…] I want him to be proud of his hair and his heritage.  [BBH: YES! Our battle cry!!  AWESOME SAUCE!  You rock!!]

^^^?!?!? *Goes COMPLETELY OFF!!*  meltiiiiiing….

 Aweee, thank you Mommy Stacie and Cullen for participating!! SERIOUSLY.  Way too cute. I mean just…SUPACUTE!  Isn’t his hair all  supathick, GORG and delightful like?!?!?  *swoons* HHhhhhh.  The world needs more Big Boy Hairz…  Now back to Mommy Stacie.  Perfect example of trial and error.  See my friends, sometimes a little product junkie tendency (speaking to myself here), can be a GOOD thing.  Amen?!?! Keep trying and you’ll find what works. Lovin how intentional Mommy is with lil’ man man from day one understanding that its not just about BIG HAIR, it’s about that baby underneath embracing and loving himself top to bottom, inside out.   THAT is beautiful and a mother’s love, and THAT should be the only thing folk see.  BIG props to Mommy on the BIG HAIR moisturizing and styling tip!  Mommy Stacie and Cullen…
Go’Head Baby!

Go’Head Baby!


Welcome to “Baby Big Hair Blast” where we highlight BIG HAIR artisans and their muses:) Up next to the BBH stage is Mommy Mylea of Happily Nappy-Naturally Yours and her sweet lil’princess “MJ”.  OHGAAA, what a precious moo moo!!!  No doubt MJ’s BIG HAIR has got Mommy “workin’, Workin’ WORKIN’ DAY AND NIGHT!”  (get it?  MJ?  smh..)  Well, we had the chance to “chat” down with Mommy Mylea and get the deets on that SUPACUTE baby and alllllll that BIG HAIR!   ACK!  Let’s dig right in shall we??

[BBH:  Purdy lil baby!:)]

BBH: What do you find are the challenges for styling MJ’s hair and how do you over come them?
MJ’s hair type 3A – 3B, very defined curls and silky. Just a spritz of water and some Shea Moisture Curl Milk and we are good to go for quick ponytail syles. I dont have very many issues with her hair but sometimes I get frustrated because it’s so soft. It doesn’t hold braids very long, but other than that her hair is very manageable with the right product and a wide tooth comb. [BBH:  Ahwlwayz!] We mostly do bantu knot-outs and cute little zig-zag parts for ponytails, and for special occasions a big decorative head band with the back out! [BBH:  Cuz BIG HAIR is special:)]

BBH: How do you entertain MJ when styling her hair?
The Sprout Channel is the most amazing thing. Dora comes in close second. Sometime she wants to play “Elmo Loves ABC’s” on my my iPad. Those three things distract her for about…..oh…. 5 minutes, lol! [BBH:  RRRRRRRRIIIGHT!, LOL!]

[BBH:  Hi there Big Sis!!  Tell your baby brother I’ll see him in a few inches:)]

BBH: What are your fave products these days?
My fave products are Shea Moisture Deep Conditioning masque (for a leave-in or bi-weekly deep conditioning after washing), Shea Moisture Coconut and Hibiscus Hair Milk (for shiny,defined curls) and good old fashioned water! [BBH: well if it ain’t brrrroke!!!] She likes to spray her hair herself with my spray bottle. It cracks her up! [BBH:  You bedda train up a BBH!!, oweee!]

BBH: How does MJ feel about her hair?? Oh Honey, MJ loves her hair! She is a very prissy and dainty little girl unlike myself at that age. I was a serious tomboy. She loves dresses and the colors pink and purple.  I teach her that her natural hair is beautiful and she gets tons of compliments literally everywhere we go!  And everyday after I do her hair, she runs to our floor length mirror by the steps to check herself out! smh She always asks me “Mommy, I’m a princess?” and I say “Yes Darling” every time 😀 [BBH:  You sure are MJ!  A BBH Princess!!]

[BBH:  *channels Beyonce* Finally, that Big Hair’s TOP!  top, Top, TOP, T-AHHHP, that BIG HAIR’s on TOP!]

BBH: Tips for wearing BIG HAIR or fave “quick” styles.
Water, water, water! We are made up of more than 75% water so its essential in almost all that we do. [BBH:  So tell me how you feel about water..:)] We drink a lot of water in my house and we use it on our hair too. I never style my daughter’s hair when its completely dry. I always spritz a little water on her hair before de-tangling and styling. Also oil the scalp 2-4 times a week. We use Doo Gro Growth Oil about three times a week because we both have dry hair.  [BBH: Oweee BIG HAIR pah-leeease DOO GRO!  YESTH!! Noted:)].  

[BBH:  SSSSSTOP!  Gimme Dat Baby!!! LOVIN that “out” style!]

BBH: Last but not least, anything you would like to share about haircare in general or hair experiences.
I’d just like to share that being natural isn’t just a look, it’s a lifestyle! I was blessed to have such a beautiful little girl with a wonderful head of curly hair.  And because I am natural myself and take such pride in it, it’s only right I pass those beliefs on to my little ones, especially my daughter because I want her to believe that she is gorgeous and that there is nothing wrong with her hair as it grows out of her head!  [BBH:  That’s right Mommy, HHhhhhhhhh. Heart it…]

^^^^?!?!?!? ^^^^ GET.IN.MY.PURSE!

Thank you Mommy Mylea and MJ for participating.  OWEEE! Isn’t that baby just SUPASWEET and CA-UUUUUUUTE!  Gimme ‘dos CHEEKS!  Smooshy wooshy BABY!!  GAAAA! And her hair is so thick, full and GORG!!  Lil’BBH Princess:)  I think its beautiful that she knows she’s beautiful.  Kudos to Mommy for setting the tone for loving all that BIG HAIR.  Please be sure to stop my Mommy Mylea’s Happily Nappy-Naturally Yours blog for more details on her and MJ’s haircare routine and the natural lifestyle.  “LIKE” her on FB and tell her we sent ya!  Mommy Mylea and MJ…

Playing “Hushpuppy” in the movie BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD, this little Baby Big Hair is a sure force to reckon with. I was FLOORED by her talent and voiceover in the movie trailer and completely in SWOON with her ever-so-kissed-by the-sun- BIG HAIR!!! Of course nothing outshines her blossoming talent and drive. I can’t wait to see this amazing film and watch this little star shine on screen. More importantly she is yet another figure for my daughter see as herself: beautiful, talented and filled with confidence. This girl is poetry in motion. Check the trailer below:

Yes hon, that’s what I’m talkin’ about!! But even moreso, check out this interview where she talks about acting and how she won the role of Hushpuppy:

COME ON SOMEBODY!! Please believe it. So beautiful and posed!!! LOVE HER!! BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD is currently in theaters for a limited time. Let’s get out there and support this lovely little BBH! Quvenzhané Wallis…

Welcome to “Baby Big Hair Blast” where we highlight BIG HAIR artisans and their muses:) Up next to the BBH stage is Mommy Daisy and her sweet little girl cherub, Chamberlyn. O_o…OHGAAAA!! Doesnt that name + that precious face just COME FOR YOU?!?!? HHhhhhhhh. Seriously. TOO.MUCH.CUTENESS goings on here!!! Well ,I had the opportunity to “chat down” with Mommy Daisy and get the 411 on that gorgeous BABY and tha supasweet BIG HAIR! *shrills* Let’s get to it, shall we?

BBH: What is your hair washing routine?
We wash twice a week and grease with coconut oil. I usually put it in two-strand twists after each wash. If we get lucky her Aunt will cornrow it for us. [BBH: We Are Family!… I got Baby Big Hair and ME! *insert Mariah Carey finger* Yeah-Yeah-Yeaaaah!]

BBH: Little girl…if you don’t put those cheeks ^^^ in my hand…

BBH: What do you find are the challenges for styling Chamberlyn’s hair and how do you over come them?
The most challenging part of styling Chamberlyn’s hair are the tangles, because its sooooo curly. We battles tangles EVERYDAY. [BBH: Say it aint so lawd…]

BBH: How do you entertain Chamberlyn when styling her hair?
I entertain Chamberlyn when styling her hair by putting on one of her favorite shows (Yo Gabba Gabba [BBH: Now.Its.Time.To.Dance!, Dora the Explorer, [BBH: DORA!] Mickey Mouse Clubhouse [BBH: Hot Dog, Hot Dog, Hot Diggity DOG!] and engaging her about what’s happening on the show to distract her from getting her hair done. She hates getting that hair combed! [BBH: Aweee little BIG HAIR…. It’s o-tay:(]

BBH: *giggles* You’re ssssilly! Come here….IMMA GET YOU!!!

BBH: What are your fave products these days? We love Miss Jessie’s Baby ButterCreme. The smell, it doesnt leave a “gauky goo”, and it keeps her curls nice for a few days. [BBH: EEEK! Long lasting curls?!?!?! *googles* LLLLLet’s start with the 2 oz….]

BBH: How does Chamberlyn feel about her hair??
Although she hates to get it done she loves the final product and always says “Take a picture of me”. [BBH: Cuz she’s FLY! Aint nobody playin’ with that baby! Shhhoooo….]

BBH: You lil’ DOLLFACE!! Get in my pocket…

BBH: Tips for wearing BIG HAIR or fave “quick” styles.
Fave quick style is poof ball [BBH: BAY-UM!], and my tips would be keep your hair moisturized! [BBH: Fro’sho!]

BBH: Last but not least, anything you would like to share about haircare in general or hair experiences.
Overall, I just want to teach my daughter to love the skin she is in. To love the type and texture of hair that she has, not want to conform to typical ideals of beauty and understand that the features she has as an African-American are just as beautiful as any pictures she sees of other people in magazines. [BBH: TRUE DAT! Let the doors open…will there be one??]


^^?!??!?!?!??!^^ *THUD*

Thank you Mommy Daisy and Chamberlyn for participating! OO-to-the-WEE this child is SUPACUTE. Hair? CHECK! Eyes? CHECK! Smooshy cheeks? CHECK! That’s it! IT’S A WRAP FOLKS!!!! HHHhhhhhh. What a pumkin. This Baby Big Hair may not like “hair time”, but she loves her BIG HAIR at the end of the day and that’s what matters most, AMEN? Lovin’ Mommy Daisy’s approach to instilling pride in that baby. See that beauty inside and out, ya’mean?!?! HHHHhhhh. Mommy Daisy and sweet little Chamberlyn…

Go’Head Baby!

 

 


OWEEE!  Loving this simple, classic yet straight FIYAH style from fellow blogger Mommy Nikki of Beads, Braids and Beyond.   I love how the flat twists are slightly raised and off to the side instead of your typical tighter and centered flat-rolled style.  Twisted all delightful like,  drawing your eyes back to that glorious crown of gloreh like BAY-UM!!  YESSSS! The juxtaposition of all that “bizznizz” framing that sweet angelic  face!?!?  Whispy lil’ baby hair smoothed to perfection?!?!? Lawd it’s just KILLING ME!!  ACK!!  Love.It.  MMhhmmm. This would also be a cute twist-out style. OOOoooo, you could even switch it up with supa POWAPUFFS.  It’s a wrap folks. Please believe it.  Get the deets on this frostatic display of BIG HAIR right here. Make it your own, EEK!

Go’Head Baby!
