|The Twin Tornados at 22 months|
There are various reasons why people choose to keep their boy's hair long or to braid it. I know that many people may be curious, so I will explain why I've chosen to do so.
First of all, I have two boys, The Twin Tornados. They are almost 2 years old and keep me on the alert at all times. There's never a dull moment at our house!
The boys have very different hair types.
|The Explorer - always looking for new and exciting adventures. |
The Explorer has hair that was straight until he was 10 months old. At that point, it began to get wavy. Over the past 12 months, his hair has changed significantly. Now, his hair is very curly in the back and wavy/curly on top. I believe it is still changing and may be curly all over before it's all said and done. I do not currently braid his hair. If his hair should become more curly, braiding may be an option - if I can get him to sit still for more than 2 seconds in a row. For now, just getting him to stay still long enough to comb through his hair every few days is a struggle.
|The Scholar - wanting to know how everything works.|
The Scholar has had curly hair since he was less than a month old. And he's always had a lot of it! I do fun cornrow and braid styles in his hair because I can. My options for his hair are to keep it very short or to use braids and cornrows to keep it healthy and keep it from becoming one great big tangle.
