Braided Hair to Reduce Tangles for Long Hair

IMG_20141119_193112079

Hello all! Why do I come with braided hair to reduce tangles for long hair? Because look at the lengthy locks my kids have!! They both have long beautiful healthy hair! The one on the right is a 4 year old boy, the one on the left is a 10 year old girl, son and daughter♥. My daughter usually has issues with tangled hair in the morning. The middle part in her hair gets tangled quite a bit, causing her frustration. She asked me if I could help her, of course I wasn’t going to say no! lol. I carefully detangled the knotted spot in the back of her head, and braided it to keep it from tangling. She had great results in the morning! To braid hair you will need to follow these quick steps:

 

1. Make sure you start of with a clean head of hair

A dirty head is a mess for braids. You don’t want to see dandruff everywhere do you? Unless you like a fresh fallen snow appeal to your outfits lol.

2. To make the brushing process easier, finger detangling is a great option!

Me in the photo thinking, There is no way I’m sticking this brush through my hair until it’s coated with conditioner lol!!!

Finger detangling makes the brushing process much easier. My daughter loves when I do her hair because I’m gentle but quick and she refers to it as, “I don’t feel anything, you sure your brushing?” lol

3. Use a wide tooth comb if necessary before brushing hair if it’s curly like my sons.

4. Start from the bottom, to the top.

Unless you want screeching children (like my mom brushing my hair as a kid, ouch! tears tears tears), I suggest this route, not the opposite. It’s makes it much easier to achieve braided hair once this process is done.

5. If you want, you can have water in a spray bottle and mist the hair a few times to style, along with gel to keep the style nice and neat.

To wrap it up…

 

Being gentle toward natural hair is the best way to keep natural hair healthy. If you feel you just don’t have the patience or time to style your child’s hair, take them somewhere to get it done. You also have the option of asking a family member to help out. You know, someone with experience so that you can see how it’s done.
