Tandi has 4C Hair Like her Mother!

My name is Tandi. I am 6 years old and in the 1st grade. My hair type is African 4C and it is most similar to my mothers’. My hair is extremely fragile even though it looks nothing like it. Less is more with my hair. My go-to is quick protective styles for school such as two-strand twists and buns. Moisturizing is your best friend!!! It makes the detangling process a breeze and this less breakage! Keep your hair moist, and clean with very little manipulation!

My favorite books are Hair Love and Sulwe. For movies, I have many favorites!! I love the Incredibles, Minions, Frozen, Moana, Lion King, Zootoopia, Mary Poppins, and The Greatest Showman. My favorite song is A Million Dreams from The Greatest Showman.
