I need advice before I take the kitchen scissors to DDs hair!
She is 13 very soon and after having a beautiful shiny bob for most of her life decided a couple of years ago that she wanted to grow her hair.
All fine, until she has to actually look after it!
It is a bloody mess, rats tails is too tame a phrase. I have after nagging every day about her brushing it actually grabbed a brush and done it myself.
There was a lot that broke if that was left on the brush.
I have earned her that I will get it all chopped back off because am terrified she will get bloody nits in it and getting them out will be 10 x harder but she also just looks a bloody mess. Almost channeling Kirsty from Eastenders!
So ladies, ideas please. She has a bathroom full of this and that but uses none of it. I have to even check that she has brushed her bloody teeth each day so it's not not having the right product, more bloody filthy laziness.
Am I to have to take responsibility and do her hair each morning? Isn't it time she bloody took responsibility for this???
I see nothing wrong with threatening/making her have it shorter until she looks after it properly. Yes it is her hair, but she is a child (if she were an adult she would be looking after it). It's the deal I have with my DDs: They wash/brush hair properly = they decide the length. I have to help wash/brush = I decide the length.
