In an effort to save time and money we avoided cutting Abigail’s hair. This turned into us suggesting to her that she grow her hair so she could donate it for making a wig. We did go in for an occasional trim and then went for the big cut a few months ago.
Because I am a busy and forgetful mom I have yet to mail her hair, but when I do I am sending it to Pantene.
Here is Abigail before and after:
All three girls were born with very little hair. Even so, whatever hair there was would end up falling out a few weeks into their lives. It seemed to take FOREVER for their hair to grow. I longed to be able to put Abigail’s hair into cute pigtails. I was finally able to when she was about two years old. Her first haircut was a few months after she turned three.
Then came Sarah. We waited, and waited. A year ago we could do pigtails, and now we are here:
This is Sarah after a long night of sleep. Most of the time I just leave it alone. Other times we need to make public appearances and I tame her mane.
Right now putting it up seems to be the best way to manage her baby thin curly hair. It is pretty cute no matter what, though.
