Earlier this year, I was at the soccer field talking with another soccer mom about ... yeah... hair. She started saying how her husband combs her daughter's hair and puts bows in it. I was like, ....errr... really!?. Hmm... this got me thinking... I have never thought of involving my husband in the care of the girls' hair. I don't even think he had ever combed the girls' hair before.
The next day, we started the learning process.
It is very important for us to incorporate our spouses, partners, and other people that will be involved in the care of the child's hair. Share the knowledge!!
You can start by teaching him/her about doing the LOC method to moisturize the child's hair. It's as simple as that. He might not know all the natural hair terminology, but let him practice the little things like brushing the kids hair. My husband can't braid or do twists (even with Lil Sis trying to teach him LOL), but he does a good job at getting her hair ready for school; moisturized, sealed, and brushed.
