Hi, My name is Patricia and my daughter is Charisse (ka-reese).
She is a soccer player and loves to read and go fishing.
2.) What's your child's haircare routine? We only brush through her hair when it is wet and with a lot of conditioner. She wears a bonnet at night to help prevent more tangles.
3.) What products are you currently using? Silk Elements Mixed Silk shampoo, leave-in conditioner & nourishing deep conditioner (I used to get this at Sally’s Beauty Supply but they don’t carry it anymore! Help!)
4.) Do you use heat/chemicals on the child's hair? 4 times in 9 years I’ve flat ironed her hair. I used a lye free texturizer (Silk Elements No-Lye No-Mix Texturizer System Regular ) but I don’t think I used it correctly.
5.) How does your child feel about their hair? She thinks it’s ugly and of course thinks she is prettier with straight hair even though I insist her hair is gorgeous. She hates that it’s so challenging.
6.) What was the worst hair tip you have received? To brush my daughter’s hair out when it’s dry.
7.) Do you cut/trim the hair? if so how often? I trim about once every few months.
8.) What is some hair advice you would like to share? I think I need more advice before I offer any to others! Ha ha!
Patricia, you are doing a really good job on Charisse's hair! Her curls are G.O.R.G.E.O.U.S! I hope she starts to realize just how pretty her curls are! My daughter went through the same phase, as they get older they may start to appreciate their hair. Oh, and they stopped selling Silk Elements Mixed Silk products nationwide (legal reasons.) But Mixed Chicks products and their kids line, is very similar. Thanks very much for participating!
