I been on a sabbatical of sorts in regards to Amanda's hair. I've just been doing the bare minimum which means she usually looks quite frightful. My neighbors just think I'm very safety conscious because I always make her wear a helmet when we're out riding bikes, but really it's to cover her wild hair.
Lately I've been doing a bit more research and trying to learn about more long lasting styles. One of my blog friends directed me to Happy Girl Hair. It is a wonderful website devoted to teaching gentle and natural care for curly-haired cuties. She's even posted some wonderful tutorial videos teaching various styles and care techniques.
I have been told this before, but the comments this mom receives on her blog and videos have again reminded me that well-cared for hair equals a well-loved child. For many women of color, caring properly for my girls' hair demonstrates my love and devotion to these little girls that we have adopted. What that means to me is that I need to get into a better routine of caring for her hair so that when Mike is heading to town, Amanda can go with him instead of having to stay home because I have no time to make her hair presentable before he wants to leave.
Right now Happy Girl Hair is hosting a give-away for an adorable sleep cap. Amanda has been sleeping on a silk pillowcase but she still seems to wake up with her hair all amiss so perhaps a sleep cap will help.
