Son #3 has been growing his hair out to put it in dreads. His hair hangs in tiny tight frizzy ringlets and won't do anything that it's told to do!! Rarely does he have a good hair day. Most of the time he keeps it under a beanie cap--but it's getting too warm for that now and it makes him look kind of scary anyway. (Technically he's kind of getting used to looking scary no matter what he does!!) He's almost to the point he wants to be at with the length. He can keep it in a ponytail for a while before it works it's way out.
Anyway, he actually got his sister (Daughter #2) to straighten it out for him cause he was wanting to see how long it really is and then he took some pictures... I just had to share!!! Giggle!!
I'd swear that he was in an 80's heavy metal band or something!!! Too funny!!
That evening, after a shower, his hair was back to normal. It's a bit longer now but this is basically what it looks like (he's wearing gel to tame it)...
People ask him all the time if his hair is naturally curly like that. They all love it. He'd love to trade!! :-)
