I’m actually hoping to hear from some of you – experiences or tips you can offer up on this. I’ve mentioned many times before that Bug is starting to get some funky curl/waves at the back of her hair that it making me crazy! I don’t know why – it just is. Funny enough, Goose was born with curls, as was Bee (as you’ve seen.) But Bug was born with stick straight hair – and for a while I didn’t know what to do with it, because I couldn’t just put a little bit of gel in it and fluff the cute baby curls. Now over the last year, she’s started showing more and more signs of this wave on the inner parts of her hair. Let me show you….
Here is Bug’s hair fresh out of the bath & just a bit towel dried. I’ve combed through it to get any tangles out and get it straight looking:
Then if she moves her head at all this is what starts to appear from within the “depths” of her hair:
Then if I “dig” in deeper, this is what is there:
Even more from the side of her head …. waves, waves, waves – or loose curl – what would you call this?!
Fast forward several minutes after we’ve dried it completely. (caught her mid-blink in the mirror I guess!) I just love her hair like this! Looks amazing, wouldn’t you agree?
But …. have her move her head or move a bit of the hair out of the way and this is what you’ll find:
It shows up even more with the flash on I think!
So what in the world is happening?!!! I’ve heard of girls hair texture or type changing as they start going through puberty or whatever – but this is for some reason, just weird to me! Months back I tried putting a bunch of my Garnier Curl Cream stuff in it and blowing it dry with my diffuser, but it looked – um –
not so cute – less than impressive! I love for her hair to be straight down in back with a little pulled up in front – but lately this annoying wave keeps peeking through making her look like she’s got bed head or something …. and coming from an obsessed hair Mom – it really annoys me! Don’t get me wrong – I don’t make a big deal out of it to her because I don’t want her thinking this is a bad thing – cuz it’s not. But I have the hardest time making a straight part in the back of her head because of this wave now. It’s just a weird thing that her hair is doing this all of a sudden.
Anyway – has anything like this happened to you or your dd? Any enlightenment you could offer would be great! This just shows you I need hair help too! LOL
