The #1 rule with curly hair is no brushing. Absolutely no brushing. Curly hair gets washed/wet in the morning, a good dose of conditioner (shampoo only once a week), and then picked out with a wide-toothed comb.
The girls are quite familiar with this rule, and will freak.out. if someone tries to fuzz up their hair.
Except every once in awhile, Julianne lets me do this:
Hi there, Miss Crazy Hair! I think a bird might be living atop your head.
No, I'm just kidding. No birds in your hair. But maybe a monkey?
Okay, okay. No monkeys. You got some fuzzy hair going on tonight, don't you?
Yes, it's my fault. But hey! I have a camera, so let's make the best of it.
Strike a pose, Jules.
Ooh, very Vogue.
Very I'm too cool for this princess nightgown.
Well, Jules, you've been a perfect model for tonight's entertainment.
Let's give her a round of applause for being a good sport!
And maybe a good bottle of conditioner too.
