With back to school approaching, it's time to think about getting your little's morning routine back on track. Having a few hairstyles in your toolbox will make mornings that much easier, especially when it comes to getting your little one out the door. When it comes to styling your Type 2 wavy kid's curls, simple is almost always easiest! Here are a few suggestions to help streamline your routine.
Wash and go: One of the easiest (but quickest) styles is a wash and go. After shampooing, use a curl defining product and apply to your fingertips. Have your kiddo flip their curls upside down and apply the product evenly throughout wet curls. Use a microfiber towel or an old t-shirt to scrunch excess moisture out. If it's cold out, use a diffuser to dry.
Curly pony: This is great for a second (or third, or fourth) day style. If your little one wants a ponytail on wash days, use product and a diffuser. You'll want to make sure the curls are completely dry before styling them to avoid breakage so you can use a diffuser to speed up the process. Once curls are dry, you can use a little smoothing balm to help define curls and tame flyaways. Gently gather curls back into a ponytail on the crown of the head, using a soft cloth tie to secure them. Use some more balm to scrunch and define curls.
Curly braid: Similarly to the curly pony style, a braid is a quick and easy style and should be done when curls are dry. Start from the back of the head and gently divide curls into three sections. If the curls are tangled, this is a great time to apply some extra leave in moisturizer to help separate them. Using an over-under method, braid the curls down and then secure with a cloth tie. You can puff the braid up to get more volume, or use a little smoothing balm to tame any frizz or flyaways.
