4 Times Black Fathers Showed Us Anything Is Possible + Hair Tips

A few weeks ago, I was scrolling through Instagram and saw a video of a man styling his daughter’s hair on the subway. Next thing I know, *waterworks.*

When we hear about Black fathers in the news, there often seems to be a negative connotation. When I saw the video of this father’s tender love and care for his daughter, it really touched my heart. This propelled me to write this blog and try to fight the stereotype by showing you guys everyday fathers doing everyday things.

Let’s begin with the video that started it all:


Ok, but tell me this isn’t the CUTEST thing you have ever seen! My man was really out here doing his daughter’s hair on the subway. If that does not scream wonderful father, I don’t know what will! Let’s be honest, when it comes to doing hair, most look to the woman in the house to complete this task. Doing your daughter’s natural hair is not something to be embarrassed of. This is a special bond you should be proud of!

When it comes to doing your daughter’s natural hair, do not be afraid to ask google, friends, and family for help! Just like you ask them to babysit, ask them for hair tips! They should be more than happy to help. This is supposed to be bonding time sir, do not break her hair while trying to give her that mohawk you saw on Power Rangers *not gonna work sir* Remember, there is no need to reinvent the wheel!


“Because you need a little Black girl on your timeline with an Afro laughing and being carefree.”

Baby India was feeling the curls and the laugh and sass shows it all! I’ve probably watched this video like 16 times and I am not sorry! *watch again for an instantaneous smile*

P.S. If you are a dad out there trying to take care of your daughter’s hair, it is important to take time learning about her natural hair type. Once you figure out the products and styles that work, this will save you a lot of time in the long run. Help her to embrace her hair, kinks and all.

It brings me joy to see little girls being natural and embracing their fros. If you are running for father of the year, I would recommend buying the Full Hydrating Avocado Kiwi Collection. This full set comes with everything your daughter’s hair needs! And don’t forget, health is wealth.


Although baby girl is still young and growing her own hair, she was definitely more interested in her father’s locs than she was in the book 😂

It is important for our young queens to see their father embracing their hair. From waves, to braids, to fros, to LOCS, representation goes a long way.


More than anything, it is important to show your daughter some LOVE! Love her and encourage her in everything she does. Teach her to love and take care of her hair. She is looking up to you to be her role model. Allow her to make mistakes. Even during her hair journey, there will be days that she may want to give up. Help her to see the beauty in her natural hair!

Oh and one more video for good luck. I could't resist!

After years of using products that left her hair dry, damaged, and dull, Muhga Eltigani decided to chop off her hair and start over. For 6 months, she committed to using only natural ingredients on her hair- foods from her fridge and the grocery store with names she recognized, like avocados, olive oil, coconut, baking soda, and even eggs. She found support through an online community of women like her, sharing recipes and ingredients on Youtube.
