Lately Kale's hair is completely out of control. This is pretty much the result of my terrible cutting skills which has resulted in about 34 layers of total shag. The more it grows, the worse it looks. The problem is, Kale has become fiercely protective of his hair and won't let anyone near it. And people, I'm fine with my kid having long hair - that's not the issue. The issue is he looks like the unkept little brother of Shaggy Roberts and that is NOT a good look. I'm terrified of bringing him to a professional hairdresser and so I just keep licking my hand and slicking it down (yeah, I'm that mom).
It does look a little bit better after it's been washed, but that's not happening very often either. In fact, every time we ask Kale if he wants to have a bath, he freezes, raises his eyebrows, puts his hands on his head and says "no hair?" When he's in the tub and I tell him we have to wash his hair he suddenly gets hit with a need to visit the toilet (his ultimate "get me out of this situation" card).
