She was 6 and I was the hairstylist that had to tell her that her hair was going to have to be cut. Panicked I rambled around for the barrette bin. Maybe if she’s preoccupied she will take her focus off the tugging at the back of her head. Once I got the 7 dreads combed out to 2 small ones, I proceeded to cut off eight and a quarter inches of her partially relaxed curly hair. She didn’t really notice at first. But her little eyes grew saucer size and started flooding past her cheeks. I paused for a moment. Then I began cutting again. Moments went by and she was spinning towards the mirror. My heart is beating panicked and she says, “I don’t look like a boy.” “I have curls!?!”
Daily washing, irregular chemical services and lack of daily hair maintenance was the reason she lost her locks. To take care of her curls we came up with a daily routine that would help her avoid the big chop in the future. First, Sulfate Free shampoos are limited to 1-2 weekly. She is going to detangle her clean hair thoroughly 1x daily with use of a moisturizer. To control her frizz she is going to use a Curl Definer. Then she is free to pick any protective style that she desires. She chose to wear her curls free.
PI am just a girl who loves her job (owning and styling at HUC!) and is pretty good at explaining hair to other people.
