Curly Hair

Emma told em yesterday she wanted "curls hair like Abbys". For those of you who do not know our Abby, she has naturally very curly hair. 
Me:  God made your hair straight and abbys hair curly and that's the way it was. 
Emma:  "I still want curly hair"
Me: "well you are too young to use a curling iron on your hair to get it curly"
Emma: I can use those green things like you"
Me: my hot rollers? No. they get real hot on your head.
Emma: I won; cry
Me: you cry if i try to blow dry your hair on high instead of low. they are too hot.
Emma: But I really want curly hair. i don't like my hair being straight (isn't that always the way.)
Me: Well we can try to braid  you hair when it's wet and maybe it'll dry a little curly.
Emma: (big smile) yeah I want to do that.
Me: Ok we'll do it tonight.

Here's her "curls" this morning. Not much to look at but she was soooo proud to have curls like Abby!

If you can get her to sit still long enough you could do bunches of little braids and it'll turn out even "curlier" that's what we used to do and it was super fun :) could you try sponge rollers? Those worked great on my hair when I was little, you talk about curls! :)

I remember paying $75 (a lot back then) to get a permanent for Emma's mommy so she could have curly hair. That hair also just came out wavy and not real curly. Like Mommy, like daughter.

Laura beat me to it. You need to do tiny braid all over the head. smaller the braid, tighter the wave. Don't braid the bangs though...baaaaaaaad idea.

sponge rolls are good too.

Hmmm...I think it's time to have fun with Amber's hair.
