The Fro' Must Go

Yousuf's hair is getting a little on the wild side. In fact, I haven't cut it since we were in Gaza this past spring. Now a debate is raging in our household: Fro or no Fro?

You be the judge!

(note: hair's maximum potential not reached due to use of frizz control products...)

It's so cute, please let him keep it! I imagine that it's not very easy to comb his hair, though...

Oh Laila!
Yousuf's hair is just gorgeous. It think that so much that I showed him to my mother like a year ago and she fell in love with him.
We both check on you guys to see how are you.

Hang on to that hair as long as you can, the hair changes when they get older. It's cute let it go for a while, just don't buzz it when you finally cut it.

He has GORGEOUS hair.....if you want to trim it a bit, go ahead, but don't cut those beautiful curls off entirely please!! I used to pay a lot of money to hairdressers to try to make MY hair look like that!!

I think he has beautiful hair, wildly curling, how wonderful. (as someone with babyfine stickstraight hair I am a bit envious).
And yes, he is tremendously cute.

So long as you can get a comb through it without making tears...

Boys seem to love having long hair just as much as girls do.

Keep the Fro!

When my son was that age he had almost exactly the same hair-- sometimes a bit longer and wilder. Now he's nearly 30 his hairline is starting to recede... So my vote is "Flaunt it while he still has it!"

I think it really should be up to him. If he doesn't care, though, I see no reason to get rid of it. It's lovely.

ASA Laila,

Haram alaiki!! LOL! Mash'Allah what a beautiful child. Let him keep his locks - it's not as if he is sporting a 12 inch fro - that would be me. Uhhh - why don't you ask HIM what he would like? Nothing wrong with letting him in on the decision making sometimes.

To be fair, we have the same tussle with my son, Zakariya, who is 4 1/2!
