“Good” Hair

Mayci has a looser curl pattern, type 3c hair. I’ve been told by more than one person that she has “good” hair. It bothers me when people say that because every hair type has pluses and minuses, including Mayci’s “good” hair.

There are a lot of styles I’d love to do that I can’t because her hair just won’t hold it. For some styles I need to use extra things (elastics, product, etc) to get it to stay in place. Some styles come loose sooner than I’d like just from her moving around.

She has the most gorgeous corkscrew curls that some people pay good money to perm their hair into doing. She can choose a wide variety of styles including “Anna braids” (her favorite) and they work just fine. Her hair is equally cute long or short.

I really don’t think her hair is “good” just as I don’t think other types are “bad.” There are pros and cons to every type of hair. The key is making the most of what you have and loving it (and Mayci definitely love hers)!

One Happy Dancer

On Saturday Mayci got to participate in a dance clinic. She was taught a dance routine by the girls on the high school’s dance teams and then she got to perform at halftime during the football game that night. She absolutely loved it! She had so much fun that we signed her up for the cheer clinic they’ll be doing next month.

Almost 6 hours, 53 twists, 212 beads

Sunday was fancy hair day. We spent almost 6 hours making 53 twists with 212 beads on the ends. It was the most ambitious style I’d done so far, but also by far my favorite. I just might recreate it when we have family pictures done later in the year.

I taught Mayci how to put beads on the threader I use to get them on her hair so while I twisted she counted out four random beads from her bag and put them on the threader for me.

The back beads are totally random which she loves. The front beads are solid red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple.

This week is color week at kindergarten. The kids were invited to wear red on Monday, orange on Tuesday, and so on so the beads being those colors make it extra fun for her.
