I have never had to worry about hair styles or how to manage a girl’s hair in my life. It has been something that their mother has always taken care of for them. Since my wife passed away a year ago, it has been up to me to take care of everything for my daughters. It has been a learning process for all of us especially when it comes to protective styles for natural hair.
I knew that the day would come that I would have to learn about different hair styles and such, but I did not realize how quickly that day would arrive. I have just had to learn about protective styles for natural hair so that my daughters would be able to manage their hair and not have to worry about damaging it quite as much.
After I learned what had to be done, I decided that it would likely be best if I was to have someone that really knows what they are doing take care of my daughters’ hair. I felt that it was too much of a challenge for me to do and that they would be very upset with me if I had done something wrong to make things worse for them.
I had found a friend of their mother’s that was more than happy to help me out with this. She has the same type of hair as both of my daughters and knows exactly what needs to be done to keep it healthy. I have seen pictures of women’s hair that do not take the necessary steps to protect their hair and I really did not want that for my daughters.
I honestly think that if it was not for what I had learned online that I would not have been able to make the decision to hand this over to someone that really knows what they are doing.
