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??]
