Hair Tips for Tots.
“We usually rock the bam-bam. If she’s patient, we’ll get two pigtails.” – Chrissy
“Starting knot of a knot braid and it holds the hair in for the rest of the braid.” – Bonnie.
Glue a small piece of nonslip shelf liner into the inside of your clips to grab the thin hairs.
Let their hair be crazy. Embrace it – let them be unique.
When it’s a crazy day: Hats, Hats and more Hats.
Tips for Controlling Crazy Hair
Liven up pigtails AND make it harder to take them out. After you make the pigtail, and band it, split the hair above the band and pull the “tail” up through the hole.
“Use detangler! Hair styling should not hurt.” “ I find a spray bottle of water with about 2cm of fabric conditioner poured in , sprayed on hair and combed through helps as a detangler and sets the curls beautifully.” – Lisa
“I found that loom bands are impossible to pull out of hair if that’s helps! Had to cut them out my daughters hair!” – Rachel
Make a group of pony-tails. It will stay in, and look better, longer than a traditional pony.
“For headbands, I much prefer the pantyhose fabric type that wrap around her whole head (as pictured). The thickness of it helps keep it in place longer.” – Jennifer
Want to avoid bed hair?? Try switching to a silk pillow case. You will have fewer frizzed and teased matted bits in the morning.
Hair Tips for Kids
Make a mini-pony tail that feeds into a bigger ponytail to help capture the bangs.
When in doubt, add a flower (or three).
Consider switching up the ponytail by flipping it and adding a bow underneath it.
“My little girl is almost 3 and loves to have her hair done, but pulls it out after 5 min… Now I just let her hair do what it does. My new motto: Crazy hair, don’t care.” – Dawn
