Your curls are so beautiful! Carry them with pride


L*S*N
You and your daughter have beautiful hair! And her eyes are gorgeous, too.
A wonderful mix of coils, curls, corkscrews, and kinks.

Thanks guys! Both of my girls have pretty eyes- I'm so jealous. I might not have the pretty color, but I've got the appleseeds .

So its 3c, right?

Sometimes I don't know what it is. There are a lot of 2c wiggles, but I don't post that because so many people misunderstand 2c. My hair underneath (especially in the back) is tiny spirals and fluff that sort of just grows east-west, so sometimes I think it might be 4a.... but then I can finger swirl it into something more 3c, that hangs down, so maybe not.

I agree. Your hair and your daughter's hair is really nice. Your daughter's color is amazing. I know girls who would love to have natural color like that. And I agree with the majority... her eye color is beautiful.

I like the new pics!! It definitely looks like you mostly have tight 3C corkscrews with some 4A in the very lower back.. And you are kind of a hair cousin to Shyygirl - she has larger curls but the shape is sorta similar...

Oh! A hair cousin? Cool. Yay!

I have thought before that Shyygirl's and mine looked similar, but I wasn't sure until I got pictures to compare.

Your hair looks great! And your little one too, I love those natural streaks.

So far I have a pic of my 3 y.o.'s hair and some pictures of my flatish 1st day hair. Later I'm going to add some 2nd day hair (my fave) and so on.

I hear you on the hair typing. It's confusing when your hair does so many things. I give up on trying to figure that out, but rather focus on keeping it healthy.

Thank you guys! Hair twin, hair cousin... I've got hair family!

My routine is:

*1/week ACV, then DT with TJ's nourish+olive oil+honey
*Every other day I rinse or co wash (TJ nourish), and put some Nourish as a leave-in. Then out of the shower I add some Suave green gel mixed with a little jojoba oil over the top. Then I either sqeeze it in all over (3 min hair), or sqeeze then do finger curls (15-20 min hair). I air dry. If I have crunch (depends on how much gel vs. oil I used) I scrunch it out with some jojoba on my hand when my hair is mostly dry.

I think the olive oil is too much for my hair in the summer, though, so I'm going to start trying other oils in my DT.

Hers grows even slower, though... you could see the length there and I've never done any triming except to shape and cut off the funny little hair balls she gets at the ends of her curls.

ooh, both of you have nice hair. It's hard to tell hers from the pic, but yours to me looks 3c without any 4a - and very well cared for. Great cut, too.
