Parents: A Few Tips For Unmanageable Hair For Your Child

posted in Beauty > Hair
  • Okay so I didn't know where to put this fully since it is hair care I placed it here.
    I would like to note something about what I'm going to tip is I have to learn this from hairdressing school so I get the best hair care for any hair type at any age.
    And most times parents are iffy doing these but you can. They are controversial on the internet specially when someone states it. But I'm telling you it is okay, specially if it's for fun, special occasions or to help manage their hair.

  • Now I have a little girl who has unmanageable hair. I can't brush her hair properly because it gets knotted so much within an hour and that she has curly long hair it always hurts her, even when I use the detanglers. But I'm telling you it just makes her hair oily and just not something you want your child to have to deal with as they get older and it's not fun in general.

  • Straightening: okay most parents don't agree and some don't see a problem. I agree with both of them but there is no harm as long as you know what your doing. Low heat, away from the scalp and teaching them to not touch and talking to them on what you are doing. It's out of pure fun and won't hurt their self esteem. If anything a child enjoys dress up so this is one thing you can do with them. Plus it gets them used to staying still and patience.

  • If your iffy you can always blow dry straight.
    Blow drying: yes blow drying is safe to do for your child, as long as it's at low heat. Drying naturally is okay but blow drying will help train the hair to go straight or wavy. Plus you can brush their hair while doing this. It will also help not only will be dried quicker but prevent them from getting ear infections because of the damp hair covering their ears.

  • Products: yes you can use any product that is silicone/sulphate free. There really isn't much products for kids except for detangler's but as long as you have a product that is free from harsh chemicals and you only use half of what's being told (less than what you would normally use).

  • Now if hair is getting into their eyes, it is best to get bangs until they know how to handle their hair on their own. But until then, bangs will help prevent the hair gettin into their eyes.

    Here is a photo of my child before and after her hair being done and trimmed. Her hair was pasted her shoulders but you would of never known because her hair is curly. Her hair was also getting into her eyes and also knottig every chance it got an again it would hurt her when I had to brush. I blurred her face out because of her identity. Plus her father would have a fit about me posting a photo of her.
