I choose braids for my toddler’s hair care for several reasons, but being a working mom with minimal time to spare, low- maintenance is reason #1.
Braids are also considered a protective hairstyle for black hair because the less you do to black hair the more it grows or flourishes. Caring for toddler hair can be somewhat cumbersome because by the time you comb and style their hair, get in the car, and get to your destination, their hair looks as though it has not been combed in a week. Not to mention, most kids despise getting their hair combed.
Toddlers love the floor, rolling, sliding, scooting across it, standing on their head, you name it — they will do it while unknowingly damaging hair that is pulled up into pony tails especially around the edges and rear.
Here are a few of the more simple styles I like to do with my daughter. These cornrows are low-maintenance and last at least two weeks. However, I am running out of ideas. What kinds of styles have you tried for your toddlers?
