Ever notice how the curly girls want straight hair and the girls with straight hair try to curl it? This girl has had a best buddy since she was little that has gorgeous natural ringlets. Cate once told her friend, “You’re Curlies and I’m Straights!”
The biggest problem with being “straights” is that you have to brush it out. Every. Day.
Every. Day. Or you will end up with what my Mama calls “rats nests.” It’s no fun to brush hair, but this tangle free brush is a huge help. (Amazon affiliate link)
We went from only Mama having to gently brush through her tears, to her being able to brush her hair out on her own.
Curly girls don’t have to brush hair. Which makes being curlie SO much more appealing to this spunky little girl. So appealing, in fact that by sheer force of will she seems to be slowly turning a few curls of her own!
Seriously…this is so weird to me. Has anyone else ever heard of a child’s hair beginning to curl at age 7?
