I think every woman dreams of having a little girl to dress up in adorable outfits, tutus, and bows. It’s been one of my dreams since the moment I decided to have a baby.
Now that my daughter has long enough hair to braid and style, I love playing around with all the different styles I can come up with.
My mom was never able to french braid my hair. I remember how badly I wanted cute hairstyles like the photos below when I was a little girl, but unfortunately, I didn’t get them.
Most toddler girl’s hair is pretty fine because they still have their baby hair. As they age, their hair may change texture as the old hair falls out and new hair grows in.
Grooming Long Hair
The one drawback to having a toddler with long, gorgeous hair is washing, drying, and especially combing. My daughter HATES when I comb her hair!
I try to be gentle, but long hair can get pretty knotty, especially when it’s been chewed on, dipped in yogurt, and rinsed with milk splatters.
I’ve seen a lot of success by using a good conditioner and leave-in hair detangler on my daughter’s hair. Baby Bum’s line of all-natural products works great to make my daughter’s long knotty hair more manageable to comb through.
Although toddlers seem to always be in a rush, make sure to let both the conditioner and hair detangler set in for at least 5 minutes before rinsing or combing it out.
Also, be sure to use a wide-toothed comb and work through small sections to prevent hair breakage and pain. You don’t want your child to be scared of the comb day after day like mine was for a while!
Let the hair air dry if possible instead of towel or blow drying it. Shaking up their hair with a towel can cause more knots and you want to stay away from the heat damage that a blow dryer can cause on their fine hair.
While I collected a ton of headbands before my daughter was born, I had no idea how quickly she would grow out of them. Plenty of babies take awhile for their hair to grow, but my toddler’s hair grew like a weed!
The baby headbands just didn’t cut it and we needed to stock up on bows and hair ties. They started off to keep the hair out of her face until I realized that there were so many cute hairstyles I could start doing.
I’m in love with these handmade bows on Amazon! They are such a great quality for the price because bows can get really expensive! They come in a wide array of colors that you can always match an outfit with.
These tiny elastics are perfect to make the gorgeous hairstyles below. You’ll always need small hair bands for the little sections, braids, and twists on fine hair.
With all the bows, barrettes, hair ties, and headbands, and accessories, you’ll need a place to store them all! While you can just shove them all in a box in their closet, you can also use them as a gorgeous decoration in your daughter’s room.
Now I can’t wait to see my daughter in all of these adorable styles!
