When it comes to styling your kids, there are a thousand and one options you can pick from. Although, we’ve selected a few of these methods in order to make them even more beautiful and satisfied with their hair. Many of us parents may have noticed how difficult it is trying to get your child to cooperate with the hairstylist, and in as much as we try, sometimes it gets too difficult and we give up. ‘’just do anything simple for her’’, you say to the hairstylist, irrespective of what you had planned. I once took my sister to the salon to make her hair and I spent a lot trying to placate her, in the end, we got home and few hours later, she had loosened all the strands of hair picked. Annoying, right?
Anyway, here’s a list of things to do in order to avoid all that drama.
MAKE SURE THEIR HAIR IS IN GOOD CONDITION
Most times we underestimate the importance of keeping our children’s hair in good shape. A meagre amount of hair cream here and there and we think it’s all good? No. we need to consistently condition their hair, wash when necessary, and apply a wide range of products to ensure it is healthy enough to be plaited, else it might be difficult to manage and could lead to hair breakage.
FORGO UNREASONABLY TIGHT BRAIDS
Contrary to the opinion that says ‘’beauty is pain’’, our children do not have to go through all that struggle just to look beautiful. When styling their hair, make sure you’re not putting them through more than they can handle, as this can make them uncomfortable. If necessary, ask the hairstylist to go easy on the scalp and this could in turn prevent redness or blisters resulting from overly tight braids.
DO AWAY WITH EXTENSIONS
Adding hair extensions can be a major cause of pain while styling, and this can also have other adverse effects such as weakening the hair, which could ruin it in the long run. Let their hair breathe, there are many fashionable items these days that can be added to the hair such as beads, rubbers, etc. Do this instead and watch how helpful it becomes afterwards.
UNDERSTAND THE TEXTURE OF THEIR HAIR
There are a lot of beautiful styles we see on the internet, magazines and so on, and sometimes we get carried away and impose that on our children, without even knowing if the texture of their hair is suitable for it. So next time you think of doing that style you saw in a magazine for your child, make sure her hair is suitable enough for it, in order to avoid any sort of damage.
So, these are a list of options to pick from in order to achieve a flawless look for your child. Remember, practice makes perfection.
