It is going to take me a little while to get used to it and it also means getting it cut regularly now. But he is so pleased with it - 'I am a boy now' was his first comment! The curl is still there but it is more wavy now and I think the only way to get rid of the wave is to have it really short but mummy is not ready for that yet. I need time to get used to it like this first . I am sure that time will come when he wants it really short.
