Li'l Bit's first length check....by request. (And first time using Kinky-Curly)
Ok, so I think this may be hard to believe for a lot of people, but I don't do length checks. Honestly, I don't think length is all that important when it comes down to it with curlies. Curls are supposed to shrink. I love curls, and shrinkage just comes along with having healthy curls. I like seeing how healthy my girls' curls are, I like to stretch the curls and watch them spring back, and I love feeling their hair and seeing how soft it is. It never occurred to me to do a length check, but a Facebook 'like'er inquired the other day about the length of Li'l Bit's hair, and I did get curious to see how what the difference would be between a stretched-out piece of hair and the rest of her curls. So I decided to post a few pictures. :)
Her hair with Kinky Curly products. First time using them on her hair. I am very pleased. I sense a product review coming soon. :)
Hair was ALMOST dry in this picture.
Dancing. If you know Li'l Bit, you know there is ALWAYS dancing. :)
Ok now, the stretch.......(length check...This was after her hair had completely dried) Look at all those beautiful, healthy coils! LOVE this head of hair. :)
And now, just because I am one proud momma, some gymnastics pics from earlier that day. :)
(She was looking over to make sure I was watching, lol. Of course I'm watching, baby!!
Length checks are not something we are going to get into the habit of doing. Like I said, I don't put emphasis on the length of hair at all. After all, Li'l Bit's hair grows out and up...not down. I think if I were to make a big deal about length, she would be more likely to want her hair straight to see that length. So instead of comments like "Look how long your hair has gotten!" we say things like "Look at all this thick, healthy, beautiful hair."
