Tell us a little about yourself & your daughter:
My Name is Leticia and this is My Little Deseray, she is 5 years old.
I am Mexican (very straight hair) and my husband is African-American, we have been married for 6 years.
We are a military family and we are stationed in Italy.
I need to order her beads and hair bows online so my selection is not that large, but I’ll try some of the websites you have advised.
What is your daughter's hair care routine?
We wash her hair and deep condition once a week.
Her hair has a lot of “Fuzzies” so her hairstyles last the longest about one week, except the box braids.
I detangle her hair with my fingers first, then the wide-toothcomb, and then leave in conditioned and then I start styling.
Before she goes to bed I wrap her hair with a cap or do-rag (how do you spell it?)
What kind of products do you use on her hair?
I just use coconut oil, leave in conditioner and now Curly Q products, she likes her hair curly and long. I also like Protective Mist Bodifier by Taliah Waajid, and Beemine Moisturizing Daily Spritz.
Have you ever used chemicals on her hair?
Nooooo. I haven't put any chemicals in her hair. I did (My sister) straighten her hair once, but it got very dry. She loved her hair straight, I told her we can do it on a special day once a year.
Can we see a few of your favorite styles?
YES Check it out. she said she looks Awesome..
How did you learn to do all of this?
If I see a hairstyle I usually pay attention and 90% of the time can replicate it. I taught myself how to cornrow, and from there I just made up some styles, watched some videos and, as long as I can remember I knew how to French braid, that was the first thing I did to her hair other than the ponytails and twist. Her hair is too long and dries out too quick now so I have not done any twist lately. Also necessity, I cant have my little girl hair looking all messed up. (Any tips are welcome)
How does your daughter feel about her hair? Can we see her favorite style?
Ray loves her hair, the first thing she does when I’m done is go to the mirror. She loved the Veil style, she came back from the bathroom and said “ MOM....I have Diamonds on my hair, I love it.” She is goofy.
If you had to share one hair care tip, what would it be?
The best way to take care of your babies hair is to learn about the hair type, if you don’t know ASK, or find your website. Also make it comfortable for your little one when fixing her hair, cartoons, take breaks, snacks…
