So, I asked the Fiance to videotape me doing my daughter’s hair. I only attempt a hairdo on her about once a week; and from the video, you can see why. When her hair is complete, I’m usually frustrated and drenched with sweat. When I’m done, she usually heads for the nearest pillow and rolls around in it until her once pretty braids or twists are fuzzy and full of lint. I’m positive she does this on purpose just to antagonize me.

This video proves two things: 1) That black mothers have at least one extra hurdle than white mothers do… and 2) that I can not pass away before my kids are grown. They’d simply be lost without me. Enjoy!

    I thought I was alone in the hour or so long fight with my 16 month old daughter who absolutely hates getting her hair washed or styled. I have managed to get my back out of alignment messing with her and I don’t know if She will ever grow out of it. Thank you for this. I hope my daughter gets better with allowing me to do her hair.

    OMG! your babies are beautiful! I am a Caucasian won in the process of adopting an African American 1 year-old girl. I did my reasearch on how to take care of her hair and it looks beautiful, but she doesn’t have nearly enough hair to braid Since its only about an inch and a half in the longest spots. Any suggestions on what I can do besides make sure it’s properly moisturized? She was a foster baby for the first year of her life and was not taken care of very well, so I started from scratch with nutrition and haircare. Any suggestions you might have would be great!

      Hi Amanda,
      Thank you so much for the compliment! And congratulations on the new addition to your family!
      My suggestions are to establish a regular deep conditioning and moisturizing regimen. If her hair is coarse and chronically dry she’ll need deep conditioning every week. Here’s an article that I wrote on some all natural deep conditioning treatments that may help you:
      You’re on the right track with the nutrition. Make sure she gets in her green veggies and enough water each day. Be consistent with the moisturizing and nutrition and I’m sure you’ll see some positive results. 🙂

      I love it when people find old videos. It gives me a reason to go back and reminisce. Isn't he a fool? I guess that was part of the reason why I married him. lol
