If your child has short hair, you can try out different hairstyles without feeling limited.
You also don’t have to use hair extensions if you don’t want to.
All it takes is creativity and a will to use what you have.
This is why in this article, I will be recommending a few natural hairstyle ideas you can try on your child.
These hairstyles are ideal for kids age 2-14 years.
How do I find a hairstylist that does kids’ hair in my area?
To find the best hairstylist for your child’s hair, I recommend searching for a hairstylist in your city on Instagram or ask other parents for referrals.
Then you can try them out to see who is the best hairstylist for your kids.
How do I maintain my daughters’ hair while in cornrows?
To reduce discomfort while your child sleeps at night, be sure she goes to bed in a satin bonnet so that her hair is kept in place while she’s asleep.
To moisturize her hair during the week, simply spray her hair with one of these leave-in conditioner sprays or use your own DIY leave-in spritz.
When she showers, please make sure she wears a shower cap.
To keep her scalp moisturized, use an anti-itch scalp oil that will keep her roots fresh and supple.
How long can these hairstyles last?
I have included an estimated length of days or weeks each hairstyle should last for.
Please note that you can take your child’s hair down anytime you want, which means that you can take them out before or after the estimated time.
You will also notice that I underestimated the length of time each hairstyle should last for.
This is mainly because children’s hair gets frizzy much sooner than adults’ hair because they don’t pay the same level of attention to their looks as adults do.
Also, kids grow fast, which means that you won’t always have the opportunity to do cute kids’ hairstyles on your kids.
Very soon, your child will turn 13 and will not be interested in doing childish hairstyles anymore.
So it’s best to take advantage of the time you have right now, by playing around with as many kid-friendly hairstyles as you can and while you can.
