Many moons ago I did another post of a child star from the Disney channel, Skai Jackson. Catch that post here. Now there’s some new girls on the block and these lovely young ladies can SANG! They are the winners of Radio Disney The Next Big Thing singing competition. These girls are so very talented. Playing musical instruments, these girls have had guest roles in The Fighting Temptations, Meet the Browns, and House of Pain. Their YouTube channel has over 12 million views! Did I mention they have two songs now available on iTunes! Here’s link to their Facebook page showcasing their natural locs! At only 12 and 14 years old, these girls have a bright future ahead of them!
Mommy nooooooo!!!!!! *chases child around room with comb*
Does this setting sound familiar to you? As a kid with a lot of hair, my mom (and aunts) were often overwhelmed with my hard to manage hair. Tired arms and tears where the norm. Well those days are no more with simple practices that can make washing her precious curls a breeze!
These are the tools you will need
Grab some toys, coloring books, and movies they will help keep your little princess occupied. Snacks are great too! TAKE BREAKS if she begins to get antsy let her stretch and grab a drink of water. You want this experience to run as smoothly as possible.
Finger detangling is your best friend!! Spraying a conditioner mix (w/plain H2O) will help “melt” those tangles and knots. The conditioner I used (pictured above) is a cheap conditioner by VO5 I found at Meijer. You can use whatever you have on hand.
1. Saturate hair with conditioner mix.
2. Section hair in workable sections and secure with hair clips
3. Working one section at a time. Begin separating any tangles or knots with ONLY your fingers.
4. GENTLY comb out any further tangles with a shower comb or paddle brush. If you run into a ‘trouble’ area STOP combing and work out the tangle with your fingers and proceed with the comb.
5. Braid (I find that these stay together better than twist) the detangled section.
6. Continue until entire head is detangled.
Being a mom of a 5 year old daughter I find myself watching Disney Channel or Nick. While watching one of Disney Channel’s shows, Jessie. A little girl caught my eye…
Little Miss Skai Jackson
I absolutely love seeing a natural cutie in one my daughter’s favorite shows. I think it’s important for little girls to see other girls wearing their natural hair. Don’t get me wrong I’m not bashing the other shows where girls are wearing their hair relaxed/pressed. Buuuuuttt there are SOME girls who aren’t as accepting of natural hair, because it’s not what they see and doesn’t come across has “pretty”.
Skai has been in show business sense 9mths old! From tv shows to commercials. Skai is always rocking a cute twist out with the most adorable hair accessories of course! This girl has a LOT of hair! I would love to know how they maintain her beautiful tresses while on the set…
Tune in to the Disney Channel to catch this diva in Action!
