Website: Happy Girl Hair
By the time I created Afro Puffs and Ponytails, my daughter was 18 years old and styling her own hair. There were many times when she was a small girl and a pre-teen girl that I longed for more information on caring for her natural hair. After I created Afro Puffs and Ponytails, I began to realize there are many moms(and dads) searching for hair tips, hair styles, hair products, and everything to do with hair care for African American/Black girls. Well, although my daughter is a young adult now, I understand the frustration of wanting to do more for your precious girl’s hair and not knowing where to go.
Because there are many people visiting this site for information on hair care, I have continued my quest for natural hair care articles and information to publish for parents. When I came across Happy Girl Hair, I was elated! Katie, a parent who adopted two beautiful girls from Ethiopia, created Happy Girl Hair and it is indeed a great resource for natural hair care for girls. I would have loved having access to such valuable information when my daughter was a little girl! When I contacted her to find out how Happy Girl Hair came about, this is what she had to say:
” Several years I ago, I was new to the task of caring for sweet, little curls and coils. I had a hair pick, some questionable products, a lot of hope, and little more. After a while, my girls started to dread having their hair done and I realized something was very wrong. I went searching for answers. I read books and joined forums. I experimented with products and techniques until I felt confident and my girls’ fear was gone. When hair time was no longer a struggle, when we felt relaxed and no one was experiencing any pain, I knew I was on to something.
