4) How would you define your style? (ie, are you a dress up girl, more casual, love to be fancy etc.  What is your favorite style for school, for dressing up, for each season, etc.

Sincere’s mom says that her daughter loves to wear her hair out and curly. She would define Sincere’s style as a bit of everything as it depends on the weather. Sincere’s mom says that she likes to mix up her daughter’s style, and that Sincere loves to look girly by wearing dresses! However, she also says that Sincere loves to mix up her style by wearing trainers and boots with cool T-shirts with slogans on them.


5) Hair care tips!  What are some hair care tips you can share for taking care of your curly hair? Best advice for kids with curly hair?

Sincere’s mom’s best hair care tips on taking care of curly hair is to plait(to braid) your child’s hair before going to bed. In terms of styling your child’s hair for school, Sincere’s mom does not recommend using heat so she naturally lets Sincere’s hair dry after washing it. She also uses detangling brushes and detangling sprays to help style her daughter’s curly hair.  This is really important to consider while trying to manage your child’s hair, because keeping your child’s curly hair moisturized will help make the process simple and far less time-consuming than if you did not moisturize their curly hair!

6) How often do you wash your hair and why? 

Sincere’s mom washes her daughter’s hair once a week with the “Camille Rose Naturals Coconut Water Leave-In Treatment,” which leaves Sincere’s curly hair soft and shiny. She washes Sincere’s hair with shampoo every 2 weeks with “Camille Rose Naturals Sweet Ginger Cleansing Rinse.”


7) Are you a morning hair washer or an evening washer, why?

Sincere’s mom washes her daughter’s hair in the evening, rather than the morning, so it naturally dries after she moisturizes it and plaits it up. If she does Sincere’s hair during the night, Sincere would put on a Durag or bonnet to help keep her curly hair neat for the next morning.


8) Has curly hair impacted your child and her self-image, please provide details on her “hair journey”.  Did she always love her hair or was it something that happened over time? 

Sincere’s mom says that having curly hair for Sincere has been a journey as most of her family has straight hair. She says that her daughter has always struggled and constantly used to say Sincere wanted her to straighten her hair. Sincere’s mom has had to show her pictures of beautiful little girls with curly hair to show how other girls love their hair, and now she is starting to embrace her beautiful curls!
