Conquering Hair Styling

Today marks the 6th month anniversary of our arrival in the good ole' USA with Joelle.  Most days it seems like it's been much longer...Joelle is doing so well.  It's impossible to explain how blessed we have been by the Lord over the past 6 months!  Thanks to all of you for the prayers and support!

We wanted to drop in and let everyone in the adoption world know about a pretty amazing deal we found.  We have been growing Joelle's hair out for 6 months and it's really getting pretty long.  Jared loves the fro and we have begun to master that hair style.  However, Joelle really wants braids!  We've heard horror stories about how we'll fail over and over again if we don't go to the beauty salon.  Her hair isn't quite long enough to braid big, but some friends of ours from Utah, that adopted from the same orphanage as us, introduced us to a product called Nudred.  It's a hair locking helper, and pretty easy if you ask me!

Last night we tried it for the first time....it took us about 1 minute to lock Joelle's hair into small dreds, or as she calls them, braids.  They have tons of products that are really good for the hair...above are the ones we are trying out right now.  As one parent to another...try them out!

These are the before and after shots....we aren't quite pros at this yet, but the girl got the style she wanted and we did it in 1 minute!

We'd all three encourage everyone to check out Nudred....they saved us quite a bit of time, money, and a trip to the beauty salon!  If you are in the process of adoption or already have a child home, you either know or soon will, that hair styling is a little different.  It's a pretty fun adventure for everyone....good luck on your new adventures!
