Trying To Tame The Beast

Not only is Layla a wild child in her actions, but her hair has also been uncontrollable since the day she was born.


I tried many different techniques to tame the wild beast that lives on top of her head.


Clearly, I’m not done yet.

    Ha! Love it. People used to tell me that having boys meant I would have it easier with their hair. Maybe, but I know some boys with wild hair and Layla’s certainly was even when short. I like the mohawk the best. ; )

    Hee! Love this, so much!

    (Chloe’s hair stood straight up for her first four months, a true sign to her personality which incidentally, I so love!)

    My family always made fun of me for putting products in my kid’s hair, but theirs were also untame beasts.

    I love it! My oldest son’s hair stood STRAIGHT up from the time he was 5 months old until it finally got long enough to lay down. Now, it is thick, coarse, and if I let it get even a little too long, BUSHY. Not a good look!

    I love your pics, what a cutie!

    OMG she’s so cute!!!

    I admit, I love wild hair on children. I really hoped Monkey would have curls, but alas, he has my straight hair.

      H had curls until her first hair cut and now her hair is straight. L has a tiny bit of curls at the bottom of her hair but I’m sure they won’t last either.

    Just like my Abigail!!
    It’s so funny, even the hair on the baby pictures looks the same (She didn’t have curls back then.)
    I have given up..

  8. What a wonderful picture! You have to love hair that floats in mid-air.

    When my Kenley was younger her hair stuck straight up like a porcupine. It was rather comical! It’s better, but still quite unruly…like her personality. =)
    Love the photos!

    Eh, wild hair, schmild hair. When you’ve got a face as cute as that, neat hair is a minor concern.

    Oh man, you don’t even know how much I needed this post today.
    How scrumptious.
    We used to joke about Chunky’s hair. He had the best combover.

    Oh my but she is so cute! I love the Pebbles ponytail the best. For some reason you weren’t popping p on my reader anymore. I thought it was strange that you hadn’t posted in so long. ;)

      I wonder if it’s because you were subscribed via Google Friend Connect. They discontinued that for WordPress blogs March 1st so any new WP posts won’t show up in your reader if you used GFC for them.

    Those are adorable pictures!!! My girls don’t keep hair bows or barettes in. Sometimes they’ll wear hats. They are just starting to let me do their hair – maybe it helps that there is two of them so if one wants her hair styled, then the other does too. :)

    My Leila can give her a run for her money — what I love is when we manage to get her to keep pigtails in all day long . . . and then take them out . . . there’s this wavy mess that is just spectacular.

    Nevermind her bedhead, which is a beast unto itself.

      Bedhead is always something crazy. I think my kid gets it from her grandma. Either way, it’s challenging.

    Oh my gosh…I love her and her crazy hair! The pigtails on top of her head are classic!
