So let us begin with my hair journey and my daughter's hair journey! We both started at the end of 2007...well, I started both of ours at the end of 2007. I currently have bra strap length (BSL) relaxed hair and her natural hair is near waist length (WL) for her current height (she just turned 7).
My son was born January of last year and is currently eighteen and a half months old. When he was born, his hair was so straight! Of course I knew that his true hair texture would grow in soon and it was a matter of time. Interesting to point out, my son has 3 hair swirls (hair whorl) on his head. One towards the back of his head, which is where it usually is on most people and two right at the hairline in the front. His hair is not dense like my daughter's, but like mine. But his hair is as coarse as hers.

I suggested to my husband one day that he get a hair cut which he responded to it by saying,"Well, why don't we grow his hair out for a while?" I looked at our son and said to myself, Yes it would be cute to grow his hair long...but what about all of the hair I already have to deal with?!

*I have been cowashing his hair with VO5 Conditioner mixing it with EVCO.
*I moisturize his hair every day with a Shea Butter mixture that contains EVCO and Castor Oil.
*I shampoo his hair when needed and then condition with VO5.
*I gently use a wide tooth comb and Denman Brush (which he tries to use himself too...lol)
His hair gets dry very easily and screams for moisture. Otherwise, it is growing well so far and I will continue with his simple regimen.
Feel free to check out the tab labeled, "My Children's Hair Regimen". It will have their regimens and a link to their hair photos as the journey continues.
(*still needs updating- they will be added to my Facebook Fan Page).
I don't know when we'll decide to cut his hair, but for now he is on an UNOFFICIAL hair journey!
