V was born with a fairly impressive head of hair. Maybe she didn’t have the most hair, but it was reddish blond and curly and definitely got her some attention. Here she is at 6 days old:
While it was ‘nice’ that we didn’t have to do much for her hair between baths, (read: it was impossible to brush once dry) bath time could often be torture. Both for her head and our eardrums. I’m not sure if it’s clear from the pictures above, but until today she’d never had a haircut. Yep, that fine baby hair was still in the mix, helping to turn those curls to dreadlocks as soon as you looked at them. We tried the conditioners. Every one. We tried the combs, the brushes, the comb/brushes.
She was so insanely happy with the results I couldn’t get her to stay still. Luckily she had a skating date this afternoon that helped to wear her out. We couldn’t contain the hair, but we could tire her out *g*
