Co-ordinating outfits and hairstyles with my broke best friend is one of the highest perks of being a #girlmom. I know I’m not only speaking for myself when I say that right up there with my wedding day fantasies, was a mental folder full of all the “me and mini-me matchy-matchy” things I would do with my daughter!

Plus, if you are one of the “unlucky” mommies whose genes "betrayed" you and your baby girl looks a 100% like her daddy (LOL, you thought you were the only one, nah fam there’s a lot of us ouchea)  the next great thing is to wear matching clothes and have matching hairstyles!

The bonus for us mommies of the now, is it has become so much easier to bond over hair because things have gotten easier than they used to be on “hair day”. No longer confined to only relaxing our hair with chemicals and waiting for hours on end to get our hair done on mama’s payday, we have DIY remedies that handle our precious hair with care and super do-able DIY hairstyle that look amazing. 

To top it off, there are a variety of natural hair products that one can choose from, depending on hair type, hair texture and hair length. It's all up to what one wants to achieve and the look they are going for. Our very own Pearl Thusi, collaborated with AfroBotanics to create a brand that creates products to cater for natural hair and we love to see it. They as well have hair products safe for your little one.

Even greater is the fact that in 2021, one is always a YouTube or TikTok tutorial away from rocking the best trendy natural hairstyle. 

Whether you are looking for protective hairstyles to shield your hair from the winter or you are looking for an up-do that will work for your date night or hairstyle that will suit your daughter's "strict" school conduct and still look cute, inspiration is only a click away on Instagram.

Now, social media is filled to the brim with women and young adorable girls spreading #blackGirlMagic and showing off their gravity-defying hair and we #LoveToSeeIt!

The following IG accounts are just some of our top favorites, check them out and see what coordinating mommy and me hairstyles you and your daughter will be rocking next!
