Those Wild Curly Headed Girls

Pretty much since the day I started posting pictures of my daughters, one comment about them I’ve gotten the most has been about the hair. Specifically the curls.

They are topic of discussion with friends, family and more often strangers.

It’s either “oh my gosh, I just love their curls” or “where did they get those curls from?”.

My response, thank you and I don’t know.

The truth is, I don’t know. I’ve always had straight hair with a slight wave and Jon, well, he has no hair. When he did have it, from what I remember, it consisted of tiny curls. Being half African-American, his hair is very different. Puffy, with a curl, but lays kinda flat. Really, I don’t know how to describe it. So, my only guess is that the kids got some kind of in between that produced big, spiral curls, the kind women pay big bucks for. Although, truth be told, I can’t imagine why. Yes, it’s pretty but my goodness the KNOTS!

Anyways, I’m rambling. I took some photos of the girls and realized how crazy Kaydee’s hair has gotten. It’s so long now that she has to hold her hair up just to see her eyes in a picture.

And Emma …. well, hers are a little more relaxed like Matt’s hair was at this age. When we cut his hair for the first time his curls never came back. I have a feeling hers won’t either. But seeing as how her hair is growing at a snail’s pace, we won’t have to worry about that for awhile. She’s working the hedgehog look right now.

    Love it! I’ve always had curly hair, too, and it’s just so much easier than straight hair – my daughter’s hair is straight & I just never know what to do with it! :)

    My 5 year old granddaughter has wildly curly beautiful hair. She had one curl that hung down in her eyes, so she took the scissors and cut it off at the base of her scalp. You can’t imagine how disappointed she was when it started to grow back. LOL I hope she will always love her curly hair. Her 3 year old sister has stick straight hair and her 2 year old sister has that perfect balance curls in the back, wavey in the front. Brother has no hair but I can’t wait to see what it does!

      That’s funny you mention that. Kaydee has a single curl that lays down over her right eye, it’s her favorite curl as she calls it. I think I’d just die if she cut it off.

        I love those curls and the girls are absolutely gorgeous. I did read somewhere that to help keep it maintained and not dry and knotty, is to wash with shampoo and conditioner, maybe twice a week and the rest of the week use just conditioner. Helps with knots.

    Our girls have curly hair (not quite as curly and thick as your girls’ beautiful hair), and people ALWAYS stop us to ask about it.

    Same response…curls…no idea. Red hair? Recessive gene. But, people love it!

    wow, you’ve got some curly headed kids!
    My hairs been straight since I was born, so I’ve never known what it’s like to have curls:(
