I loved Sonel's hair and didn't want to cut it...but, it was getting too hard to pick out. I don't know how people deal with little girls hair. His hair was sooooo tight. Well, I finally cut it, with some advice from Tanya (thanks). I've watched my husband sheer our sheep and it was pretty much the same. You just take it slow and it comes off in hunks. His hair was a little over 3 inches long. It hadn't been cut for 9 months. He looks so handsome now and his hair feels so soft. I'll keep it cut from now on. A lady I know who came to the US, from Haiti, when she was 14 said that Sonel would look like nobody was caring for him, if they saw him in Haiti, with his hair like I had it. I thought it was so cute, but he is as equally adorable now. Here are a couple pictures.
Hope holding Sonel's hair up to a ruler.
It would actually be over 3 inches long!
