Being of the female gender you would think that I would some ability to style hair but I was apparently not given that gift. Growing up I always (with the exception of a brief period in the second grade) wore my hair shoulder length or longer but 95% of the time, it had it tightly secured in a basic pony tail. I was not one to spend extra time on my hair when I could spend it sleeping and being in multiple sports, it was just easier to tie it back and not think about it.
Now that I am a mother to a little girl, it seems I am expected to know how to style her hair. Basically, I have 3 go to styles for her: down, in a pony tail or in pig tails. That is the extent of my hair styling abilities. I attempted to braid her pony tail once and while she thought it was cute, I could see that it needed help.
As she gets older, she is asking for me to do more with her hair. I need all the help I can get, the Cozy’s Complete Guide to Girl’s Hair is just what I needed. I spent some time reading through the first few chapters of the book where it talked about Hair types, tools, accessories and products then my daughter and I sat ans looked at all the pictures of the different styles trying to pick one that she wanted me to try.
After looking through all the pictures many many times, we finally decided on the “The Bow Trio”. She loved it for the bows and I was thrilled that it did not look too difficult. She loved it and I even thought it turned out pretty cute, that last bow could use some straightening out but she can not keep her head still for more than 5 seconds so this is about as good as it gets.
I have frizzy hair and with riding my bike to work, I tend to use more hair gel now than I ever have before (except my gymnastics days when you plaster your hair so stiff that it wouldn’t move in a tornado). My little one is becoming more aware of my morning prep routine. She now wants to wear eye shadow and use hair gel but I am not a huge fan of her putting those chemicals in her hair. Along with the Cozy’s Complete Guide to Girl’s Hair, we also tried the Styling Cream Kooky Kiwi. It is great for taming those pesky flyaway’s and it is free of harsh chemicals. It also smells amazing!
With a bit more studying of the Cozy’s Complete Guide to Girl’s Hair and some practice (O.K. a lot of practice), I might even brave the adorable heart braid that is shown on the front of the guide.
