Hair skills

I love the twins' curly hair. It is so soft and springy and just beautiful. I would love to leave it free every day. Alas, it becomes quite a matted mess after a few hours of rolling around on floors and furniture and sitting in their carseats... so most days we put it up. I've been trying to learn some different styles, but the girls aren't very nice about sitting for hours while I practice. However, I thought the one I did last night came out well. We did rolling twists with some fancy diagonal parts in the front and I put the pigtails in three little twists each.

I finished it off this morning with some little ballies around the pigtails. It stayed in pretty well overnight, too. I had to redo some of the pigtail twists, but it was easy! It's not as elaborate as the styles on one of my favorite blogs, Happy Girl Hair, but it is pretty good for a beginner. :)

Last night for products I used Carol's Daughter... Tiana Shampoo and Conditioner (a limited edition Disney line, some other name than Tiana, but she's on the bottle), plus Hair Milk and some of the Tiana detangler. This morning I spritzed the twists and strays with a little more detangler. I do like that Hair Milk, but it has a very strong fragrance, alas.

Wow! I'm in awe ...and jealous! My two year old isn't very patient and her hair's not all that long, but I know what I can aspire to!
