NATURAL HAIR CHILDREN AND THE PERFECT HAIRSTYLE

Two - strand twists are one of the easiest styles for small children with natural hair in my opinion. You can style them as you see fit from day to day. Size does matter when looking at the longevity of the style and the style options. I opt for small to medium size twists for my daughter, who has  turned 11years old today.  :O)   I moisturize and co wash her hair per our regular routine. Cutting bangs in the front just adds a little something cute for those ponytail days, she can wear her bangs if she wants to. Here are a few pictures of my daughter's from several months ago. We don't use much heat on her hair, but as she ages she requests more blowout styles to show her length . 

How do you style you young daughter or son's natural hair?

  1. i like 2strand twist in my girls hair but they dont last long they unravel quick, so instead i do twisted buns or some ponytales with twisttales or braidtales and sometimes ill just put some corn-rolls in but i dread taking them out in one of my daughters hair b/c she takes forever as for my oldest i dont have a problem doing hers and with her taking them out. they are 4 and 5yrs old. as soon as i can find out how to keep those 2strands in i will do them more often, even if i do the braided root then twist they still dont stay in bummer

  2. my son has a haircut that I do when it's needed. I don't have any daughters. I do have a granddaughter when she's over I styles her hair in cornrows,and ponytails. I've found the Ms. Celie braids to be good for her hair too.

  4. @ShaMaeL have you tried "rope twists" they seem to last a little longer with my hair. There are several youtube tutorials on them. I think of them as 2strand twists with an extra step.

  6. @ShaMaeL. I was going to suggest the braid then twist method. @Callie751 left a good suggestion. What about flat twists? Is the hair fine and loose, or tight and coarse?

  7. Since I've become natural I love practicing two strand twist in my 5 year old daughters hair. I also like doing braids but I usally make it too tight so I steer clear. My 12 year old on the other hand is relaxed. I've been trying to convince her to transition but since shes a middle schooler its a little more difficult to sway her from her opinion.

  8. @callie751 im still getting the hang of rope twist/3strand twist so it looks flicked when i do
    @Vanisha i do flat twist as well i do half of it to the middle of the head i might throw in a bun or put it in a ponytale with reg twist. my 2 girls have different textures and mixed textures all i know is that they both share/have spiral curls my oldest has thick hair all around for the most most and a loose in the back as for my 2nd she has loose spirals with only her middle being the thickest so some hairstyle work better and stay longer on my oldest but wont give the same results for my 2nd girl

  10. I mostly put twists in my 11 year old daughter's hair. She loves to try new styles because she models and competes in pageants, so I try to change it up a bit when we have more time to play and on those occasions when the twists won't do.

  11. Happy Birthday to little AE!!!!! lol And yes 2 strand twists are awesome. I just did my first mini set that I will actually keep in for a few days (they were so short before that I would take them out for twists out now I'm hopeful with the little bitty length I do have (7 inches)
