ABOUT PROJECT

This website was produced as a part of a class project. The course was INTE 5680 Producing Media for Learning, part of the Masters of Arts in Information and Learning Technologies at University of Colorado Denver.

The assignment was to create a mobile learning object teaching a concept or set of concepts. I chose to cover little girl hair styles as an exploratory exercise and to provide a quick reference for all the parents out there who have trouble in this area.

What you need to know to avoid hair disasters

TIPS

1. Use the detangler!!
2. Shampoo often, condition every time.
3. Brush starting at the ends and brushing towards the ends, moving towards the scalp as the tangles disappear.
4. Be gentle. Gurly scalps are sensitive!
5. Be realistic. Don't try something new 10 minutes before you need to leave for school.
6. Teach your daughter to do her own hair.
7. If you have a "messier" child, cut her hair shorter and give her bangs. No pony tails needed with this haircut.

C'mon Dad! It's not that bad.
