What most of you don't know is that I have a 2 1/2-yr-old who is like no child I had ever been in contact with. She is much more active than my 15-yr-old was at her age. Calling her hard-headed is an understatement. In addition to she and my oldest daughter being polar opposites of one another, doing her hair is no easy feat. Thankfully the lady who babysits her while I'm at work is a beautician & doesn't mind doing her hair. However, I have to reserve large blocks of time to take down her hair, wash it, & re-do. This, sometimes, can take well over a week. Needless to say, this is quite exhausting. Now, I know many of you are probably saying well maybe she's tenderheaded so on & so forth but, NO. She isn't. She's just extremely non-compliant.
A few months back I had mentioned to my husband that I wanted to loc her hair. He replied, "He** NAW!" With that response I thought I would not mention it again. After he witnessed how difficult it is to get her to cooperate he agreed.
This past weekend I began installing small-sized braidlocz to my baby's head. Most of the process was done while she was asleep. Being her usual stubborn self she did wake up a few times to give me a hard time but, once she realized I was determined & not taking her BS this time, she gave up - reluctantly!!
Surprisingly, my oldest daughter, although she thinks the locz are cute, doesn't want the baby to have locs. Mostly because she thinks she's going to meet opposition, which she probably will. I told her that I am going to equip her with the utmost knowledge & try to instill in her the beauty of natural/kinky/loced napps & the warped, tainted views of society. If after all of my teachings she still is unhappy with her hair, then, & only then will I consider other options.
Well, here goes my baby.
