Now that, my friends, is 2 year old bed head with gusto. She never did struggle in the hair department, even from birth, and it’s gone on to be one of her most striking features. But, it would only be right to show you the amazing along with the horror….This is her, just turned three. She does bridal hair pretty well, no need to tong! Age 2. So, as a mum of two girls I’ve had to learn to plait, braid, de tangle, pretty damn fast. Thankfully we have negotiated her out of the ‘wanting it down’ phase and managed to convince her plaits are all the rage (thanks to Elsa). Turns out fishtails are really easy to do! French plaits, not so much. this was my first successful,attempt It lasted long enough for me to take a quick picture, before she pulled it out. Sigh. My first lesson was if its in, don’t think you can redo it better.
If all else fails, you can’t go wrong with a good old pony tail.
Bath times have always involved lots of washing, conditioning, combing. Followed by de-tangling, combing, drying, and plaiting before bed to avoid picture #1 mornings. We have tried to stop washing every day as its mostly out of the way these days and doesn’t get too messy. But age 1, when it was a curly mop, it would act like a magnet to paint, mud, food, grass….. Products I’d recommend include the Denby kids hairbrush, Schwarzkopf Supersoft kids shampoo & conditioner, L’Oreal Kids very berry strawberry conditioner.
In all honesty, it’s such a faff I’d like to give it a good chop, but she’s having none of it. She actually thinks she is Rapunzel, thanks to all the fuss that’s made of her hair everywhere we go. So, the odd trim it is for now. To be honest, I’d die for those sun kissed natural beachy curls! So who can blame her?!
