It has been over a month since our last Hair Show and we are excited to get it back in motion especially with our friend Kandy's Daughter "N" from KandyLandKurls!!!!!
Meet N <3
N is 6 years old, she is half African American and Puerto Rican. Her hair type is mostly 3c mixed with 4a.
How and When you got started styling hair
I learned how to braid from my aunts, as a child. I would practice on my American Doll Addy, and Barbies. I was very scissor happy on my dolls :( and learned through trial and error. But it wasn't until I was 12 that I learned the hard way on my own hair. From dye, hot combs, gels, to chemicals. I experimented with a little bit of everything lol.
Hair care Routine/Pet peeves
I wash N's hair once a week, every weekend. I deep condition her hair every other wash, I use a rinse out conditioner also.
I try to make sure her hair is in some form of braids or twists, which helps to prevent knotting in the morning (she is a wild sleeper) I also try my best to put a satin scarf on her head (it tends to come off at night & I'm forgetful sometimes) but I do try to use it daily.
I give N a hot oil treatment, or I should say, warm oil treatment, once every month or every other just to make sure her hair is well oiled.
N receives a egg treatment, once a month. All I have to do is simply crack 2 raw eggs into a bowl and beat them. Then I apply the eggs to her dry hair and I let it sit for approx. 10 mins. Then I wash it out with warm/cold water and continue with shampooing. (FYI -it's important to use cold water, to prevent scrambled eggs in the hair..yucky)
