More praise for Lil Better Butter!

So I moisturized my scalp and hair with the Better Butter and later went on a date.  Tell me why dude would not stop talking about how great my hair smelled. Plus he kept playing with my twist and even rubbed his face in my hair. So apparently Better Butter is also an aphrodisiac =)

3 years old and relaxed

The school year began and I was excited and happy to see my new students arrived all natural. Each little girl appeared more beautiful than the next with plaits and cornrows beautifully beaded to coordinate with their school uniforms. As afropuffs and laughter filled the room, I saw her 3 years old and relaxed. Little mama had her hair pulled tight and teased into faux afro puffs! Why did you relax it to pull it into puffs? I question the parents obsession with length. The manufacturers of relaxer do not even recommend its use on children under the age of five.
SoftSheen.Carson recommends a child be at least five years of age before applying a relaxer. Try using Beautiful Beginnings No MistakeTM No-Lye Children's Relaxer System for kids.

They even caution against pulling hair too tight.
Shampoo and condition hair weekly or bi-weekly and keep hair soft with moisturizers. Avoid pulling hair too tight when styling (i.e. braids, rubber bands, etc.) Beautiful Beginnings and Baby Love hair care products are formulated especially for kids. Try Beautiful Beginnings Conditioning Shampoo Plus Detangler, Oil Moisturizer Plus Detangler, Leave-In Conditioner Plus Detangler, Scalp Conditioner & Hairdress, and Kid's Cholesterol Gentle Conditioning Treatment.

My only solace is that she is alone. The entire rest of the class is chemical free and beautifully braided weekly. :)
