Frizzy hair is something that runs in my family. We’ve struggled with dealing with it growing up and it sucked because there was not much products out there for me that could calm and maintain the frizz. Needless to say Dippity Do Gel was my best friend in highschool lol. This is the hair I start off with every morning lol!
Don’t worry it doesn’t need to be as scary as it used to be for us growing up. I feel like this is the best way that works for us without having to apply heat all the time by blow drying her hair. I have come accross some kid-friendly products that work wonders in my daughters hair and I’ve been using these for about a year now. Here is what you’ll need:
You’ll also need whatever hair accessory you are using for your hairstyle. Today’s option for my kiddo was a braided pigtail. It’s quick, easy and stays out of her way at school. The first thing I do is use the detangler brush and spray the some water throughout her hair to help the detangling.
If i were to braid her hair just like that without any product, the braid comes out very bumpy and frizzy. There is also a lot of little hairs that stick out. Her hair is currently layered, which I regret doing, so sometimes braiding gets complicated with keeping everything tucked in. But, the products help alot. Here’s a closer look at the two main products I use for her hair:
The SoCozy Boo! leave-in spray is awesome! Especially if you have a little one in school. This is a lice protection spray and it doesn’t have a horrible smell. It’s made with tea-tree oil and it’s like a repellant to keep those nasty bugs away. The next product I use is a natural hair gel that I discovered where my kids get their haircut. It works amazing and I feel better that I am not putting a bunch of random chemicals in their hair.
A combination of the products and using a boar bristle brush makes ALL the difference in the world. Once I apply the gel, I use the boar bristle brush to smooth any little bumps out and slick all the hair into a pony. Braid each side of the pigtail and this is the outcome:
Keep in mind, once your kid leaves the house and goes to school, there is no product out there that will have them coming back home looking like when they left the house. But that’s okay!
