"Dad's Point of View"

Hello everyone!

I would like to introduce myself...I am "the dad"!! I wanted to tell you some of my thoughts and feelings on being in a multi-ethnic family, especially taking care of my daughter's hair!

SCAREY!!! That is the word that comes to mind when I first think about doing her hair. First of all, I have little experience doing a girls hair...but, I couldn't believe all of the products we went through to find the right one. I thought hair was hair. Wrong!!! I have always cut my son's hair and dealt with his hair, but his is short and easy to maintain. My daughter's on the other hand is very long and full of tangles. I was scared to brush or comb it because I thought I would hurt her. My wife would just run through her hair pulling my daughter's head all over the place because of the tangles. I tried to be more careful and gentle. It was impossible to be gentle. Her little head would get pulled all over the place. When she was smaller, we would set her in front of the tv with a book or toy to keep her occupied while we combed it. That is how long it would take to get all of the tangles out. I didn't really think we would ever find a product that could make such a huge difference on her hair.

This texture softener is really good!! I can now comb through her hair without pulling her all over the place! :) She has a hard head so it never really bothered her...actually, it would hurt my wrists. They would get a really good workout! Funny, huh?

I really am glad my daughter booked this job...if it wasn't for that, we probably never would have tried this product!! It is AMAZING!!! :)
