So, I was getting low on my staple Kinky Curly Knot Today Leave in Conditioner and “anyone who knows me” knows that’s my lifeline for BBH’s hair. So off to Whole Foods I went. Well I’ll be, I see “new” stickers all over the place in the Beautiful Curls section. There it was: Shea Butter & Coconut Hydrating Curl Oil

eeeeEEEEEK! BBH’s hair adores the BC’s Curl Activating Creme and responds great to Shea Buttter based products especially the BC line of styling products (i.e. their curl creme and sculpting wax). Plus, I really wanted to try a different all natural oil and was leaning towards purchasing some coconut oil. But this combo was KILLER!! Had to have it and snatched that bad boy right up, and (I know, smh) the Kinky Curly Knot Today I came for. HHhhhh. YA’LL DON’T LOVE ME!! You say you do, but aint nobody praying this PJ spirit away, OH GAAAAAAA (*runs away crying*)!! LOL! I jus’playin, I jus’playin:)

K. So here is the catch. The lady at the register couldn’t get the oil to ring up (prolly cuz it was so new to their system? Its not even on the BC site listed as a product yet. IDK, who CARES!?!). She looks at me and says “This is your lucky day, I can’t ring it so its yours.” Yes hon, I got it for FREE!! Did He get ALLLLLLLL the glory in Whole Foods?? Trust, He did!! Product review coming with mad love for Beautiful Curls. And to my new friend at the register…

Go’Head Baby!

Officially took down BBH’s recent Twist and Twist out Style. She is SO in need of a deep condition (still from braids earlier in the summer; bad mommy!) and a protective style so I can rest her hair a bit. Plus I just miss my small twists!! Anywho. This is BBH in all her BIG HAIR glory having a lil’fun, complete with princess gear, smh…

Go’Head Baby!

So, I’ve finally realized my role in the whole BBH hair washing process. I am the official hair drying daddy! Yup, that’s right, while mommy washes the BBH do, I am preparing to take her to the local park for some quality sun-baked hair drying.

I’m sure that all of you fathers out there know what I’m talking about before I even start. What do you do when mommy is doing the kid’s hair? I mean, yes, we could engulf ourselves in the process and even help out. Nahhh. It’s better just to let them have that time together and find something else (non)productive to do.

So I’ve develop a quick top ten list to help when you are trying to decide what to do during that alloted time. Here goes nothing: Continue reading →

So I’m just waiting for the day for our daughter to ask my wife, “Hey mommy, where’s daddy’s hair?”. With a tear in my eye and the straightest shoulder-to-tip-of-index-finger possible I’m going to point at her and say, “Have you looked in the mirror lately!! Huh, have you?!” Hahaha.

But seriously, I do think the shorty doo-wop took my hair. Maybe not all of it, but some of it. In my youth I used to have the biggest afro in the community. Kids could play hide and go seek in that joint. It was big enough that if I wanted, I could stash my sippy cup in it and pull it out when I needed a drink (like the one Super Globetrotter, Sweet Lou, on the 1970s old school cartoon, remember?).

So this weekend was big hair week for our daughter. Mommy went through the process of washing her hair on Saturday morning. And believe you me, it is a process that I’m sure my wife will break down in a multiple-posts series in the near future.

Well the decision was made for her to rock the curly afro steez for the weekend. Let’s just say that before that happens again, we are going to have to make some signs with the instructions: Don’t Even Think About Touching My Hair!!

I mean come on son! We went to two restaurants over the weekend and people ranging from waiters/waitresses to customers just felt the need to come up and touch her hair. It’s as if we had a sign on her head telling them to do it so they could get a blessing or something. Continue reading →
