Okay ya'll.... from the last post you can see that my child is in serious need of some hair growth! She was pretty much completely bald when she came into care last October. She's had a little growth since then, but her hair is still very sparse. There is a lot of space between each strand of hair. And it is still very unhealthy--brittle and red. We've had kids come into care before with reddish or very unhealthy hair because of malnutrition, but they all recouped much quicker than Kendi has.
There is something that happened to Kendi when she was still inside her mother's womb. A sort of poisoning. I'm beginning to wonder if that has anything to do with her hair not returning? At any rate....
Who has a magic cure for me?! Who knows of a product that is going to help Kendi's hair grow and become strong once she is home? We're on a budget, but for THIS cause I will probably spend more than I would normally spend because I am truly a bit concerned about her hair! Let's hear it ladies. Any magic grow products out there?
I dream of corn rows and zulu knots and piggy-back braids, but at this rate we'll never even get a cute afro going!
