OO-to-the-WEE! It’s been a grrrrip lawd since our last hairspiration!! What better way to set this segment off for our newest readers than this funky little ‘do by Mommy Carrie, mommy, photographer and blogger of www.aisforamaro.wordpress.com. And yes lawd, love us some sweet Baby Big Hair Miss V. We are talkin straight up YUMMINESS in that joint! This child EXUDES love, laughter and joy, like all at the same time. HHhhh…. GIMME DAT BABY!! *puts in purse* Just playin Mommy:) Well then how fitting is this SUPACUTE yet simple style that is joyfully frodorable!?!?!? Ohgaaaa! CAWL ME CRAYOLA!!! Mommy Carrie breaks it on down right here:

Sometimes Miss V has very specific requests for her styles and this week she wanted ‘rainbows, beads, braids and short hair’ after a few weeks of long yarn extensions. She is from a region in Ethiopia where the traditional hair styles are predominantly small braids up front with free hair in the back, so we decided to do a fresh take on a style linked to her heritage. Her personality is larger than life, so the cheerful bead color explosion suited her well (and matched just about everything in her closet, too). On another personal note, the red jumper she is wearing in the photos was handmade by my father when I was young and the quilt was made by my parents when I was younger than V. These photos are especially meaningful as they feature an element of her heritage and memories from my own childhood. Hair really is so, so much more than just hair.

COME ON MOMMY CARRIE!!! Bedda preach. YESSSS! Sooooo much more than hair. I love how how heritage and family is interwoven in this style so beautifully and with so much care. Just AWESOME. And how bout this little purdy purdy?!?!? Told you. The yummiest EVAH lawd! *shrills* Dont know about you but I have officially tasted the RAINBOW and I LIKE IT!! Feeling all inspired or what not. *channels Patti LaBelle* If little blue birds flyyy…above the rainbow whyyyyyyyyy? *camera change and takes big breath* caaaaaaaaaaaaaAAAAAAAAAAAAAANT I?!?!! WHY WHY, WHY WHY…. CA’AAAAANNT… IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII!!! HHhhhhhh. To see more sic styles created by this mommy (and I mean SIC!!), you MUST click on through the “Hair” section of her blog, Amaro.

Welcome to “Baby Big Hair Blast” where we highlight BIG HAIR artisans and their muses:) Up next to the BBH stage is Mommy Bianca and her little basket of yumminess, “GiGi”. O_O!!!! EEEEEEEEEK! Purdyl baby with all that purdyl BIG HAIR! I cannot. THAT FACE?? Seriously??!?!? Hhhhhh…… Well, we had the opportunity to “chat” down with Mommy Bianca and get the deets on that sweet Baby Big Hair. Let’s get to it, shall we??

20130607-071307.jpgSee… This is why I can’t…

BBH: What is your hair washing routine?
It takes me approximately 1 1/2-2 hrs to wash, condition, and style her hair [BBH: Yyyyup! You have a Baby Big Hair on your hands, aint no “couple minutes” of anything in your vocabulary, LOL!].

BBH: What do you find are the challenges for styling GiGi’s hair and how do you over come them?
The biggest challenge in doing GiGi’s hair is that she’s very tender headed so I have to take my time. [BBH: Thus the up to 2 hours. I know… boy do I know …]. Still trying different products to see what’s the best detangler to use. I’ve tried Kid’s Organic Conditioner/Detangler and Taliah Waajid The Great Detangler.

20130607-071212.jpgAweee… Lil SugaMuffin Pie!!

BBH: What do you find are the challenges for styling GiGi’s hair and how do you over come them?
I try to switch it up with the styles. I’ve tried Kinky-Curly Curling Custard when doing the two-strand twist all over [BBH: The BIZNEZZ, and that Knot Today?? *goes off*]. Sometimes I use good old fashion Queen Helene’s CoCoa Butter Lotion [BBH: I ain’t mad either, sometimes simple works best].

20130607-071336.jpgWhatcha got there sweet little BBH?!??!

BBH: What are your fave products these days?
Right now my favorite product for washing & conditioning her hair is Onesta [BBH: WHOL UP! Ones-who?? OHGAAA! What’s that? WHAT’S THAT?!?! *googles Onesta* Interestiiiing]. It makes her hair soft and managable while washing it and combing through it.
20130607-073315.jpgOWEE that FACE?!?!? GIMME DAY BABY!!

BBH: How does GiGi feel about her hair??
GiGi LOVES her hair!!! She has to look in the mirror EVERY time I’m done styling it. She’s even telling my how she wants her hair styled…….or how she DOESN’T want her hair styled….lol.

BBH: Tips for wearing BIG HAIR or fave “quick” styles
The two stranded twist style isn’t that quick but last awhile. Two pigtails/afro puffs are cute and easy too [BBH: OOWEE!!].

20130607-071138.jpgWell that does it!! *points* YOU! IN.MY.PURSE!!!

BBH: Last but not least, anything you would like to share about haircare in general or hair experiences?
I love GiGi’s hair and all of the different things that I can do to it. Fortunately I have two sisters who have the same type of hair texture as GiGi so I it’s easy for me to maintain it. Still the biggest challenge is her being tender headed but I’m not going to give up in finding the right product for her! I want her to have a great experience when doing her hair…….not a bad or uncomfortable one.

20130607-071522.jpg^^^??!?!?!??^^^ EEEEEEEEEEEEEEK!! HHhhhhh…… *looks away, shuts computer*

Yes Mommy! Completely concur! Hairtime should be fun time cuz lets face it, BIG HAIR takes a LOT of patience and time. Might as well make it enjoyable!
