  1. Hey Hi, I just watched your video and saw your son's character drawings. Hey this is really a very good drawing for a person who learning how to draw by himself. And I would like to recommend your son some art books for to learn more about drawing. My brother also is learning to drawing and he is not getting an art course so he is learning by himself and when he began to drawing and when start to improve himself, like images like your son's character drawing I recommended and want him to start to study "Andrew Loomis" Art drawing books. and he get these books from me, and start to study those books. And now he is really drawing such good portraits with pencil. And he draw yesterday my elder brother photo and you will not believe he exactly draw the photo same, he really is improved his hand and his mind and eyes for drawing. and it is only 3 month passed when he start to studying those precious art books And those books are really very important for a person who want to learn drawing by himself/herself.

Please leave that baby's hair alone!

I'll never forget the first time I saw Mocha Girl One (HmG). She was an emergency c-section, and had to spend several days in NICU. She was born four days past her estimated due date and looked huge in her incubator. I imagined her to be especially delicate and feminine. I couldn't wait to frill her up, and more importantly to do her hair! The only reason she wasn't sporting a barrette the day we took her home from the hospital, was because the one I brought to match her lacey outfit, slid right out.

Mocha Girl One's baby hair was silky straight and fine. As the weeks rolled by, it became wavier until she had a lovely curly fro. I washed it all the time. I brushed it several times a day. I tried snap clips, and moved to velcro barrets when the clips slid out. I bought a different head band for every outfit. Meanwhile her curls continued to wind tighter and tighter.

I kept everything in a pretty box, dubbed the hair bin. I was really frustrated at not being ab…

How to Burn Ends of Braid Extensions With No Flame

If you try this tool out, be sure to hold the braid ends for at least 15 seconds. It will not burn the ends off completely either way, but by releasing too soon the yarn fibers may not melt enough to hold long term.  I have really loved the smooth finish and so far we haven't noticed the ends snagging on Mocha Girl 2's clothing.

Since publishing this video, I have learned that there actually is a tool made for this with multiple reviews on YouTube.  I must have watched one of these reviews in the past and forgotten, because as I said in the video, I fully expected Sally's Beauty Supply to have something.  It's called a Braid Sealer and I ordered mine on Amazon to make a comparison.  Same mechanism, however, I expect the Braid Sealer to be hotter and leave a rougher finish.  I'll definitely be back to let you know what I discover.

Both tools may be found on Amazon if you are interested.

Why Braidlocks?

If follow me on Facebook and watch my YouTube videos, then you already know that I recently started a set of  locks for Mg2  by braiding up her hair.  I've recently been asked why we chose to start with braids and thought  I would spend some time explaining it in more detail here.

There are multiple ways to start locks, perhaps more ways than we will discuss here.  Choosing which way works best for you will depend on your personal situation.  Consider your lifestyle, hair texture, sizing, and the way you would like your mature locks to look.

Most people are familiar with comb coils and twists. However, people also start locks by freeforming, backcombing, interlocking and braiding.  Let's have a closer look.

1. Freeforming   involves letting the loose hair clump and matte in whatever formation it likes.  This may yield locks of various sizes and shapes depending on hair texture and performance.

2. Comb coils or finger coils are installed by coaxing sections of hair into forma…
