She currently has a perm (which her daddy likes very much - as does she). I thought I should grow it out and use something like the Sisterlocks method of transitioning from relaxed to natural/locked hair.
I was all excited as I outlined my plan of action to my hubby...
In the UK we have this thing called NIMBY: Not-In-My-Back-Yard. Everyone agrees we need a new landfill or sewage plant or refugee detention centre or homeless shelter (list is endless) but noone wants it to be built anywhere near to where they live. "You can put it anywhere ... except here".
Imagine my surprise to find NIMBY in my house when I discussed locking my daughter's hair. My husband was vehement. Apparently he hates locks. I thought at least they'd grown on him since I now have them - but what a shock to learn that 'nope, he still didn't like them at all'. Oh well... too bad.
Now I have to wonder whether I will be creating unnecessary friction in my home by locking my child's hair against daddy's wishes... or whether I should follow my heart and do what I think is best for my girl. Hmmmm.
