How adorable!!! I can tell that you give Viva's hair plenty of TLC - it looks well-loved and healthy. Also, her hair color is gorgeous.

Awww, what a sweet baby!!! I also love the first picture, maybe because my mom used to style our hair that way when we were very tiny.

It must be fun trying all the different styles!

viva is the cutest kid!! i love her curls!! awww...
I like her little 'fro and the ringlets in the third pic. Is that how it looks just from wetting it?


No, that is co-washed, combed and basically shingled/twisted around my fingers with ORS Lock n Twist. They don't make it through the next day, but they are cute same day.

The scary picture is what happens if she wears her hair loose all day and then sleeps with it loose. So..........we never do that anymore, it takes FOREVER to get it unmatted. Hair braided every night for bed now. My life is so much better doing it that way.

She'll be proud to say how greatly her mom took care of her hair as a child, when she gets older.
I either section it into four sections and just do regular braid, or I try to do a french type braid. OR, tonight for example, she didn't get her hair wet in the tub tonight, she wore her hair in 4 ponytails today, so when her bath was over, I just combined 2 sections and made a braid (not french or anything, just a regular braid) so she had two braids on the sides of her hair. I didn't wet it or comb it or manipulate it in any way. It took about 3 minutes total. but will save me 1/2 hour in the morning. Now I will just unbraid in the AM, add avocado oil, sprotz with water mixed with conditioner and either re-braid or do ponytails. 5 minutes of work tops.

Oh yeah....Do you use a leave in/regular conditioner in the morning combined with the spritz?
If her hair is dry at night when she goes to bed, in the AM I unbraid it add avocado oil and spritz with conditioner mixed with water. I use Elucense or Tigi Moisture Maniac or Curls ecstacy hair tea whatever it's called. I keep a spray bottle with this mix in it. Make sure there is enough conditioner in the water to make it a little slippery. I just get her hiar wet enough to work out any tangles. Some days it needs to be more wet than other days. That's it. I will occasionally add some right on curl activator on top of that.

Here is my routine:

Routine Posted/Updated: 1/12/05Season (if applicable): Fall/Winter
Hair Type: 3c curls, fine texture, mid-back length when wet, nape of neck length when dry (in other words, MAJOR shrinkage)
Condition: Overall healthy, protein sensitive

Elucense MBC
ORS Lock n' Twist Gel
Curls hair tea ecstacy
Lustrasilk Right on Curl Activator
Cream Of Nature Shampoo
Avocado Oil

CURRENT ROUTINE


PM
Hair generally gets wet in the bath everyday. I use a glob of Tigi Moisture Maniac condish (or Elucense MBC, I alternate the two, I think Tigi gives better slip on wet hair) , work it into hair that has had the water squeezed out of it, section the hair and comb through with a Mebco detangling comb, working from ends to roots. I do a quick dunk in tub to rinse, but I don't rinse until it is squeaky, I leave some in. Squeeze excess water from hair with hands. This takes about 5 minutes. Sometimes I just put the conditioner and dunk and skip the combing. It depends on how tangled her hair is to start.

Then we go sit in front of the TV (gasp!) and I put about a Hershey's Kiss size dollop of either Moisture Maniac or Elucense MBC into the hair, work it through and then section and comb with the Mebco comb.
I try to either put it into french braids or regular braids, 2 or 4 of them. This takes about 20 minutes. I'm just learning to french braid so I'm slow.

Then off to bed. We don't use a satin pillowcase or anything, half the time she chooses to sleep on the floor. No pillow or anything.

AM
I undo the braids and add some avocado oil to my hands, smooth it through her hair, spray it damp with a spray bottle filled with water, conditione and brush the canopy with a boar bristle brush and either make ponys or braids. This takes less than 5 minutes.

OR
I spray it damp with a spray bottle filled with water, conditioner and glycerine, spray it damp and smooth over the hair a dime plus size of the right on curl activator. Then style.

If she wants to wear her hair down, I have to re-wet it with a spray bottle mixed with conditioner, re-section and finger comb. I add ORS Lock n' Twist for curl definition. This takes about 10 minutes.

By the way, when she sleep with her hair "Out", my morning routine takes almost a 1/2 hour. Her hair gets matted and is a disaster in the morning. Also, if I let her wear her hair down multiple days in a row, it gets a lot harder to manage and detangle. She almost never wearsr her hair loose and free anymore. It's quite long.
