He's a 12 year old 7th grader who loves to skateboard and play video games. He also plays soccer and baseball. And the ladies love him and his hair. ;)
He likes to wear his hair in his face like the white boys are doing these days.
Yes, that is his natural hair color. Don't you just love it?!
He has become a freeformer lately. I haven't twisted his hair since January. I have mixed feelings about it. I personally don't like it because I prefer a more manicured look but I really don't like doing his hair either. And he doesn't like me messing with it. It takes FOREVER to do his hair because he won't sit still and he's a little tender headed. It only takes me an hour to twist my husband's hair but it takes at least 2 hours to do my son's. But I'm not tripping about it because it doesn't look bad. He washes his hair himself at least once a week with whatever shampoo is available. He doesn't have any hair or scalp issues, which is a blessing, so I don't have to do anything special to his hair. So we agreed to let it do whatever as long as he keeps it clean. I may just twist it once or twice a year.
I washed it this morning with some Suave shampoo that I got on clearance for 79 cents. Rosemary mint. It smells SO good.
It does look like a mop head, doesn't it?!
I did an ACV rinse with oil after I washed. No conditioner. I didn't want to put any conditioner in his hair (and I usually don't) because I think it will be hard to wash out. Now his hair is nice and shiny. It usually looks dry. I'm going to make him a water/glycerin/oil spritz to keep it moisturized.
When I separated the locs, I had to use scissors cuz his hair is meshing together like this:
It took me 30-45 minutes to do his whole head. (and that's actually a water droplet in his hair and not lint)
So that's my son. Isn't he handsome?!
Til next time, thanks for reading. Be blessed.
