    So blessed to have won this fun gift! Thank you so much! My daughter was delighted to hear the news! I really look forward to reading her the book, she does not always love her big hair. She’s tender-headed and we have always had issues washing and picking through her incredibility thick and long hair. She often comments that she wants” straight hair down” (her hair is often so big its up in the air 😉 And will run around the house with long flowing things tied to her head pretending to have long flowing hair. She gets comments almost every time were in public, which for a long time made her self conscience. Thankfully the older she has gotten the more comfortable she has gotten with the hair attention. A book that highlights how great it is to have big beautiful hair is just what we need. Again, thank you!

      Oh my goodness, D did the same thing with wrapping things around her head pretending it was long flowing hair… and look where we are now, she loves her big curls! Good luck April and you’re very welcome!
