Hair: Learning and Exploring

Yes, dealing with the boys' hair has certainly been a learning process. I had read lots and lots before they arrived and tried to follow all the directions with them, but a lot needs to be figured out through personal experience. During the winter, both boys' hair got quite dry despite my best efforts. We needed to try some new products in order to restore appropriate moisture levels. Things seem to be improving significantly at this point. The biggest lesson I've learned is that maintaining their hair is a lot of work!

Both boys do not particularly enjoy getting their hair cut, preferring to have it grown out a bit. However, this does require more care. I needed some more ideas. After doing a bit of research, I stumbled upon a hair-twisting system called Nudred and decided to give it a try. I ordered it online, and it was at our house within a week. After a bit of practicing, I now have the technique figured out and can have some sweet twists in the boys' hair in just a few minutes. Jadon's been modeling this style for several days now, and we are loving it! What do you think?

So adorable. Although, he's so cute, I'm not sure any hair style would be bad on him.

This is so cool--if Sally's hair was just an inch...I'd buy it in an instant!

Hair...never thought I'd spend SO MUCH time worrying, styling, and caring for it.
