What’s up Big Hair peeps? I hope all of the dads out there had a happy Father’s Day last weekend. Well, are y’all ready to Blast Off this week? We have a special Daddy’s Corner edition of the “Baby Big Hair Blast”, where we highlight BIG HAIR artisans and their muses. This week we are featuring a lovable little one named Asia and Daddy Fred is handling this here Blast Q&A! So why waste more time… ain’t nothin’ to it but to do it…
Tell us a little about Baby Big Hair Asia.
Well what can I say about Baby Big Hair Asia, she is one big ball of energy! She loves to climb and swing from just about everything in the house. She is a joy to be around and gives some of the sweetest hugs and kisses known to man. [Awww man!! You gotta love that. Baby girls are great.]
Do you style her hair and/or what are your favorite styles to see on her?
As far as me styling her hair? I try, but its just so much of it, so most times its left to flow freely in the wind, or put in a ponytail ["my little pony, my little pony... ahhhhh ahhh ahh ahhh". my fault. Guess what I'm watching?]. My favorite style would be her Afro! I love to see her hair, the way God intended…big and natural! [Yessir, afros in the houzzz!!!]
How does Asia feel about her hair?
Asia loves her hair, she loves to look in the mirror at it and brush it. Sometimes she gets plats in her head with beads on the ends, and she loves to swing her hair side to side, and let the beads rattle and shake! [music to your ears.]
What are your thoughts on “relaxing” or “perming” her hair?
I said when she was born that I would not perm her hair or relax it, but yet let that be her decision. She has a good grade of her, and though it may take a little bit of work to upkeep it at times, it is well worth it! [Smart man. Hair is always gonna be tough to keep up with, natural, fried, dyed, laid to the side, afro or soul glo. Believe that!]
Last but not least, anything you would like to share about haircare in general, styling and/or experiences for all the Baby Big Hair Dads out there?
To my fellow Baby Big Hair Dads, one piece of advice when it comes to haircare is this…don’t be afraid to ask questions. If your not sure about a product, then ask. For me when it comes to her hair, I’d rather go with health over style! [Great advice... y'all betta ask somebody!]
Yo, thanks Daddy Fred for sharing with us this week. You dropped some great knowledge that I’m sure will help our fellow BBH dads. Keep up the good work and hug that little precious joy for us! Until the next time, this is Daddy BBH signing off.
