Welcome to “Baby Big Hair Blast” where we highlight BIG HAIR artisans and their muses:) Up next to the BBH stage is Mommy Christin of Christin Shoots People and her frodorable daughter Riley…..hhhHHHHHEEEEEEEEEEEK! *stops for breath* You may have seen this baby’s fabulous boutique frotos in circulation for Sweet and Dainty (gots one eye on that shop). Well, after passing out ovah and ovah again upon viewing each and every frolicious pic, I just had to get the deets on that sweet, sweet BABY (and I MEAN give her to me!!). Well we had the opportunity to “chat down” with Mommy Christin and get the 411 on that purdy baby and beautiful, glorious BIG HAIR! Let’s get to it, shall we? EEK!
[BBH: Lawd those TOES!! I.just.can't....]
BBH: What is your hair washing routine?
Routine: We only wash Riley’s hair during bath time or she won’t enjoy it. We start with Suave Shampoo for Kids. It’s not all natural, but it gets her hair so clean that you can hear it squeak! [BBH: Snap?!? Really? Never tried it, but I bet the price sounds nice (Check 1!)]
BBH: What do you find are the challenges for styling Riley’s hair and how do you over come them?
The biggest challenge in styling Riley’s hair is the dryness. [BBH: SAY THAT!] If it’s not well lubed, she’s NOT having it. [BBH: LOL! Jokes for dayz on the "lubed". Yes lawd, BIG HAIR = BIG THIRST!!] We normally overcome this by using more than one moisture product at a time. One that moisturizes and one that just “looks” like it moisturizes. [BBH: Up next, Christin Mixes Concoctions, LOL! Yes. A little bit of this and a little bit of that will set that baby's BIG HAIR free! Wha?!?]
BBH: How do you entertain Riley when styling her hair?
At least two people have to work together in getting Riley’s hair styled. [BBH: It takes two babehhh, it takes twoooo, me and youuuu!] One to style, and one to entertain. The twisting process normally takes an entire day, because breaks must be frequent. A sippy cup plus Phineas and Ferb normally get the job done for a while also. [BBH: Ahweeeeee, I'd entertain that baby all day, e'ryday, TRUST. Love her!!!]
[BBH: Peep the deets on the outfit - lower left, Jeah! EEK! GET IN MA'PURSE LITTLE GIRL!]
BBH: Fave products these days?
I try to keep it simple. Kinky Curly is a life saver, and I love (dare I say) LIV because it keeps her hair moist all day. [BBH: ??!?! nevah heard of it *frantically googles LIV* Hmph! I'll be... and if I've said it once, I will say it again. Read very closely peoples, closer...KNOT TODAY - get some. Nuff said...]
BBH: How does Riley feel about her hair??
I can tell that Riley really likes the “look” of her hair, because it’s always the first thing she touches when she looks in the mirror. She never wants to let others touch it though. [BBH: That's right, you've gots to earrrrrn the right to touch BIG HAIR, and it's paid in sweat (FAME)! Turn to your neighbor and say in your best pastor voice 'ahhhh-can't touch this' *runs lap round stylin' chair*]
BBH: Tips for wearing BIG HAIR or fav “quick” styles.
The good ole twist out is the absolute best tip for sure. Works for big hair every time! [BBH: TALK TO ME!!!] Before any photo shoot, I try to have it twisted for at least a few hours. My absolute favorite quick style is the old faithful afro puffs. Two of those things always make my life easier.
BBH: Last but not least, anything you would like to share about haircare in general or experiences.
The best advice I have to offer is “Do not get discouraged!” Natural hair is much easier to maintain than it has been in the past because of all the new products out there. No one product works for everyone, so you have to try different products and figure out what works for your child’s hair in particular. [BBH: ]
