Happy Independence Day (4th of July) to all of our U.S. readers! Boo's still sporting her afro, going strong more than a week after we styled it using the shingling technique. We've been participating in "Fros on the Fourth" a few years running now, and this year is no exception. See her full afro in all it's glory in the photos below.
Nothing like watermelon on a stick to make the Fourth of July perfect!
The curls are holding up nicely! We will be restyling this weekend, but overall they've remaintained their shape nicely and have given Boo's scalp a much-needed break (especially after her complicated Hello Kitty hairstyle she was wearing before this).
Interested in how we maintain this look? See our post on "A Week in the Life of a Preschool Afro" if your child's hair is long enough to pineapple at night. If the hair is not long enough, check out "Maintaining Free Hair: Wash-n-Go Preschool Style" for other tips.
We hope that everyone stays safe this holiday and has a blessed day!
