It's true; summer is almost over. Soon your little ones will be getting back to school and with that comes with getting their curl care routine back on track. We don't know about you, but we're all about anything that makes mornings a little easier. Here are some super easy, cute and fun hairstyles you can do with your Type 4C little.
Wash and go: After cleansing your little's curls, divide their curls into four even sections, or more if they have a lot of hair. The sections should be small enough to make sure product is evenly distributed through their curls. You can do this with your fingers. Once you've used your hands to scrunch in a curl pattern, you can blot excess moisture with a microfiber towel or t-shirt. If you need to dry curls quickly, you can use a diffuser on low heat.
Braid then twist: This style can be achieved on both wet and dry curls. However, if you are planning on working with wet curls, make sure to use plenty of product to prevent tangles. Avoid putting too much strain on the curls. If you don't want to work with wet curls, you can diffuse them before styling. Create multiple braids. then twist and wrap around your child's head, securing in place.
Puffy ponytails: In order to achieve this style, you're going to have to make sure all the curls are detangled. Make sure to work through all knots, and then use some leave in conditioner to keep curls from tangling. Separate curls into two sections and then tie off into ponytails using cloth bands. Make sure not to put too much tension on the edges or the curls to avoid breakage. You can use a natural styling product to smooth down the edges, or allow them to stay natural. Once the puffs are created, use a little leave in moisturizer and curl enhancing cream to help puff them up and create defined curls.
