What is your daily hair routine?
We usually wash Naomi's hair twice or three times a week, then we would put hair products such as Mixed Chicks on her hair to let it stay. If we don't wash her hair we would braid it and take it out of  the braids to make it get curls.

Do you have any other "routines" that you add to that, but don't do every day? If so, what are they?
Sometimes while we wash Naomi's hair we add olive oil or we might try to put curlformers in her hair at night. 

Do you use chemicals in your hair? 
No her hair does not need any chemicals it's naturally curly.

Do you use heat (hair dryer, curling iron, flat iron, etc) on your hair?
No Naomi has not tried blow drying her  hair yet due to the softness and since she's little we don't want to burn her scalp.

Have you ever straightened your hair? Why or why not? What were/are your thoughts on straightening curly hair?
We never tried it yet because of the softness, if we do try in the future we will go to a professional to ensure safety.

What is your favorite way to wear your hair?

My favorite way to wear her hair is in an afro with all her curls out and about.

What do you like best about your curls?
You don't have to spend hours doing it and it's easier to do than other hairstyles. 

What is the worst hair advice you've ever received?
The worst advice I've ever received is to use hair perm to make Naomi's hair straight. I think it's a bad idea because I don't think she needs it really her hair isn't coarse and it is naturally curly, it also can become straight if blown out.

If there was one thing you could say or one tip you could give a young person with curls, what would it be?
To wash your hair no more than 3 times a week to keep the nutrients inside after you wash it add curl products then style it and it's going to look awesome.

If there was one thing you could say or one tip you could give to the Parents of young children with curls, what would it be?!
Let the kids wear hair that shows their personalities and how they are and who they are.

THANK YOU!

Toddler Dance Hairstyle

<----  What do you think?!



I just LOVE this hairstyle for dance! I think it's a great toddler hairstyle for the days you need her hair OUT of her way (think painting?! anything messy really). and you can leave it in for more than one day!  It's also a good protective hairstyle because it keeps all the hair contained and ... well... protected! You could braid farther to the ends for more protection, too.

This hairstyle worked great for us as a unique dance hairstyle, it would also be a great gymnastics hairstyle I would think!

The best part? It's EASY!!!  (given you know how to do some kind of braid)


First I braided two dutch braids (or cornrows) from the front of her head to the back.


Then I crossed them over each other!  That's it!!


I guess I added some bows for flair ;-)


Don't forget a bobby pin or two if the bows won't be enough to hold the braids up by themselves!


and I just have to add that even though I didn't get a picture of them yet - Q has the CUTEST little lace leg warmers for dance class!!! I found them at www.fitzthumboutique.com  Go check her stuff out!! LOVE!!

Locks of Love Haircut... for me!



I have a history of long hair....



Even waaaaay back when I was a kid I had long hair.

Well eventually that gets old and you just need some variety, right?! So one day, years ago, I chopped 10 inches off at a hair salon in a mall. and I sent that ponytail to Locks of Love!

That started a chain of events! I do enjoy long hair. and I do enjoy variety!

This was me in December.....


Getting my hair styled professionally as you can see!

AND .... here I am tonight! After a visit to a "real" hair salon that is NOT in a mall... hehehe!!


My dear hubby is very proud of his double-chin-less photo angles!! I have to say I am too! 


and as soon as I mail it off I can proudly say I have donated FOUR 10 inch ponytails over the years! and I intend to keep it up! Variety in hair length suits me well. :)

Have you ever donated hair?? Why or why not? What organization did you use, if you have?!

If you want to know more about Locks of Love, please visit their website!

and make sure you check out the awesome Hair Donation details over at my blogging friend's blogs! Girly and Curly  and   Tweeny Hair!! These ladies (and their daughters) are so awesome!  I don't know what I'd do without blogging friends! Love you girls!!

Fishtail Braid

Fishtail Braid! Fishbone Braid? Fishy fishy fishy.... I think there's more names, too. But my mom always called them fishtail braids when I was little, so I guess that's what I call them too!

I did this fishtail braid on myself (obviously!)  trying to be a cool and hip with the side ponytail thing.... it kinda worked I guess! haha  But my hair wasn't quite long enough, so the left side fell out pretty quickly. Layers! Oh well.

The Fishtail Braid!......




Really should have used a cute flower or something to finish it off with a twist!

Ok, survey time..... Do YOU think fishtail braids are worth the WAY more time they take to do? (compared to a regular braid)  Let me know in the comments!

A New Year ~ A New Start

Wow! Christmastime was busy for us this year! Not at all in the way we expected, but still crazy.  I'm still reeling!!   I hope the New Year has been treating all my precious followers well so far!! I'd love to hear about your Christmases and New Year's celebrations in the comments!!!

This new year is feeling different to me than many others in the past. A new calendar hasn't often made me feel like busting out the new years resolutions in the past. And prior to January 1st, 2012, I didn't think this time would be any different.

Maybe it's just my mood of the evening ;-)

Or maybe I'm finally getting to a stage in life where a new start is welcome and needed!! hahaha!!


I haven't made a list of resolutions. But I think I almost could! My new start for 2012 will include new things to learn! I need to learn about cutting curly hair. I need to learn how to be a better marketer for my doula business and my baltic amber store! I want this year to be new as far as GOALS! I want to get better at setting small attainable goals that all move in baby steps toward the big goals.

I've not been great in the past at looking farther down my potential life path than a year.... maybe two. But I think it's time to start something new! Long term plans! haha!!

I have had some ideas and inspiration for this blog ... but I haven't been good about getting them done. I need a new start to that! I want to accomplish my desires!

I have a new office. and a special drawer dedicated to Curly Hairdo Ideas! Let's hope my newfound desire for organization helps!! hahaa!!

Anyway, here's to a new start ~ a new year! Here's to taking baby steps and accomplishing dreams!!!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!
