My hair made a baby cry :-/

I know it can be a little strange if you've never seen it… Big curly hair that moves oddly with little provocation.  I get it.

But this baby girl, maybe 8-9 months old who has a white mom with long straight hair and a black daddy with short coily hair, was having NONE of it. Which is ironic, because her hair looks a lot like mine did as a baby, and she may very well end up having hair very similar to mine when she gets older lol.

She stared and stared. Many babies are quick to grab earrings, hair… whatever seems interesting. This little girl…NOPE. She just stared. And if I was holding her she was staring or making sure that my hair did not do anything unsavory behind her back, craning her neck and shifting positions to keep it in sight.

So here I go, deciding to see if she was curious, scared - what… what is it?
My BF was holding her right next to me on the couch and she's staring from 2 feet away. First I used my hand to move some of it back away from my face. Well that caught her undivided attention. So then I shook it a little at her. Mind you she was sleepy and in silly/cranky mode so I was totally provoking her lol. She shrunk back, but her eyes got all big.  She stared.  I shook it again.  She let out a small whine.  The other adults were watching and laughing now like oh no, she's scared! So I very slightly shook it one more time… NOPE. tears. A monster. I said let me stop teasing her.  She stared at me the entire rest of the night - from far away.  Aww.

I felt like a big ole meanie, but also like, dag… I just washed it this morning!




Wash & Go using Camille Rose Naturals Moisture Milk and then Curl Maker with Castor oil layered on top.

You are hilarious! This has happened to me only once & it hurt my feelings. A tiny little white toddler stared & stared at my fro in Target a few years ago & got this startled, wide-eye, look on her face. I smiled, cooed at her, wiggled my fingers & she cried. LOL I got over it, but it was a little baffling to think she wasn't used to seeing either black women in general, or women with big, curly hair.

Oh, and please don't give up your blog. I love it. I don't always comment, but I have been reading almost since you started. I come back often to review styles & products you've used. *I even saved some of your styles/photos on my laptop for quick access when I need a hairstyle. I got hooked on Revlon's ColorBurst lip balm after reading one of your reviews.

I realize you're super busy, but I'll keep reading & reviewing no matter how sporadic the posts, because they're always either educational, inspiring, funny, or all three. Good luck with your hair, your career, etc. ☺
