(some heart-warming tales how moms handle those hair cuts tension of their little ones)
I'm planning to take Jiann
Yang for a hair cut this weekend but I really dread the trip. The previous
three hair cuts experience were so difficult.... He would hold on tightly
to me, cried, screamed, kicked... It's not a baby friendly place but I don't
know any other place that is. When he was younger, he would stay so still...
but now, when he hears the hair cutting gadget buzzing sound, he would start
to tense. How did you moms do it? Any tips, please.
You are not the only mother with hair cut problem!
For my two older kids, we used to DIY. Aiyoh, the sweat, the sticky hair, the mess and whole house/bathroom also teruk kena. We did not let them go to Indian shop till about 6 yrs & 4 yrs respectively. My hubby is a DIY man and if I let him, I think he can even cut my hair! We even have a photo of them with their first hair cut in a barber shop. Imagine a small Indian shop, with the Holiday on Ice powder, the Florida water, Bollywood magazines.... So, with two big bros, my #3 is very cool about hair cutting.
Now, for Matthew, we can afford girlie barber , the same hairdresser as mine, a lady. Also cry like mad but sometime just squirm.
The cost of each hair cut is RM4. Best thing about Indian stall, no waiting 'cos there are many of them. Shop name - Brother in Sg Dua (for Penangites info)
I think we had to endure that screaming and if the hairdresser is an expert, it just take them only a few minutes. Our most important instruction to the Indian barber. Tak mau cukur. Only use the bzzzz.....
But then, my hubby also sit along to get his hair cut with the boys and thus, it is not such a scary event. And with Matthew, usually, I will also cut with him. Sort of mummy keeping company.
Have anyone of you here ever use a tempurung to get the hair cut? I heard that they have these travelling Indian barber who goes around the kampungs to cut hair. Can't remember if I have seen them before.

Phoebe is lucky to have her hair cut by the baby sitter. And i was surprised that she could handle her alone (oooh, she was a hair dresser when younger!)
But the very last hair cut she had, she was crying hysterically and kept clinging on to the baby sitter coz she was frightened of her own flowing hair on the bath room wet floor
