The winter holidays can be a child’s favorite time of year — snow, days off from school, gifts, favorite foods, family. But it can also be a nightmare for snarls, knots and holiday accessories with kids’ curls and waves too!
If your child isn’t used to new styles and wears the same head band every day, the holidays are a great time to change things up a bit!
Prep their Curls
First off, prep your kids’ curls and waves with products made just for them. Specialty brands such as Curly Q’s, Ouidad KRLY Kids or Circle of Friends are a bit more gentle than products formulated for adults. Encourage a regular curl routine with your children as well. Style their curls or waves with your fingers or a wide tooth plastic comb.
If your child is old enough, show him or her just how to use the products and comb and explain why this is important. Encourage these skills early on. Don’t allow them to use brushes or wash their curls too often, and have their ringlets trimmed when needed.
