Sh*t Boomer Says : 'Mommy...I Love My Hair!'

Yes, that's right!

SHE TOLD ME SHE LOOOOOVES HER HAIR!

*For background THIS is where we started.*

It happened the other morning while I was combing out her hair.

Randomly. Unprompted. Out of nowhere. 'Mommy, I love my hair.'

I paused. I didn't want to ruin the moment and maybe I was just hearing things.

'You do?', I asked cautiously.

'Yeah! It can be curly, or braids, and twists, or straight! It's cool and fun. I like it.'

Angels are singing! My little experiment worked. I have to say thank you to everyone that left a sweet comment on my Instagram posts and here on the blog. She read EVERY. SINGLE. ONE. She looked at every single like. People who she has never met from all over helped her gain confidence about her own special unique curls. That's why I love blogging. It gives me chills to think about, but you guys ROCK.


As for my part of this, I've got two more weeks on my no heat challenge. I've learned I don't like being told I HAVE to do something. I really never straightened my hair that often before, but the idea that I CANNOT do it is making me obsess something fierce about my flat iron. So be prepared for the pendulum to swing the other way.

Its been fun learning about my hair, and Boomer's hair. I've gotten back into to beauty products and goodies again so I'll be posting more about that in the future. Prepare yourselves guys! I have been known all my life as a product guru with my IRL friends and family so I'm going to share the wealth with you my bloggy buddies.

Thank you all again to those who participated in #operationhelpmychildloveherhair !!!!!!!!

Uhhh, this touched my heart something serious. Gah... you are SUCH a damn good mom and she couldn't be any cuter. Love both of your hearts!

Yea! Yippee! Superfantastic! I'm so happy! Remember Kiehl's Heat-Protective Silk-Straightening Cream. I love that stuff and really helps when blow-drying and flat ironing the hair.

Oh that's awesome! Boomer SHOULD love her hair, and have confidence! So glad to hear all that, you really do so amazing by her! You two could probably do a stand up routine! ;-)

Alisha @ The Alisha Nicole said...

Ahh im so happy she loves it!! Tell her she is gorgeous!

Pink Pamalamma said...

Awww, yay! She's beautiful! :)

That is awesome! I think every girl goes through a phase where she hate her hair. Girls with straight hair want theirs to be curly, girls with brunette hair want it to be blonde, etc. I know I was that way for a long time! It's great that she's finally coming to love it!

You're awesome. She's awesome.

And I wish I had those curls!

Jade Wright said...

Oh my goodness! You are such a great mom Whitney! This post really hit home because I used to hate my curly hair growing up as well. All my Asian cousins had straight hair and there I was, this little mixed girl with curly hair that stuck out in family pictures. I think it's awesome and so vital that you made a point to find ways for Boomer to love her hair esp. at her young age! Totally helps when dealing with growing pains in general.
