Just kidding. It's not that bad! I just took her hair down to wash it. We had another friend come over to give me some hair styling tips. She gave Zahana these fabulous braids.
Zahana was a little wiggle worm, but this lady was really good at braiding. I need lots of practice, and I don't think I can braid with Zahana moving around so much. So I practiced on Miah. I've always been too intimidated to give Miah french braids, but I think I'll start working on it more.
It may be a while before the braids are good enough for going out in public. And the other thing was that Zahana's braids were turned under. I'm used to braiding over hand, so I'll have to figure out how to make my fingers work in the opposite direction.
Major advantage of cornrows - they last a lot longer than puffballs. I was glad she had the braids for the beach. Last year, Zahana put tons of sand in her hair and I just couldn't get it out.
She sure has changed!
