People ask me all the time what I put in my daughter’s hair. Nada, hunty, nada. Her hair is very soft and full of curls and I like to let her hair be natural and do what it wants.  Occasionally, I do it in a style and when I need it to stay I will use Shea Moisture curling smoothie. But those are just on days I feel like experimenting with it 😉

When I was younger, my mom left my hair out in its natural state a lot, just how I leave my daughter’s hair. I was never a fan of using the Bo-bo’s and tight ponytails in little girls hair (no offense if you do, just not my thing).  Little girls hair should be styled as just that — like a little girl.  If I put her hair up, I make sure it isn’t too tight so I don’t apply too much pressure to her roots.  After all, she hasn’t even hit the 1 year old mark yet.  Can’t have her being a small head bald head from the rip Lol. Since her hair is so soft, I use the small Goody rubber bands to hold her hair.  They come in black and clear. When I leave her hair out, I love to put bows or headbands with bows in it.  I think it’s such a sweet classic look.

Check out some of the styles I’ve done on my daughters hair so far.  Theyyyy nottt all that fancyyy, so don’t judge lol.

Sidebar- she does not usually sit still when I do these styles.  I have to put something in front of her to distract her. Moms, get their favorite book, toy or show and have it handy for those little movers.

    How do you combat bed head and the infamous rubbing from the pillows and blankets? I’m constantly moisturizing my daughter’s hair but each time she wakes from a nap that one spot in the back is always slightly rough. She’s not losing hair but I’m just cautious.

      My daughter’s hair is really soft and curly so I let her wake up and go on a daily basis. I love the messy curl look on her. She never lost hair either so I never had to do anything for it. I don’t put anything in her hair, so I don’t really have many tips in that area.:-( Have you looked into the silk baby bonnets? I hear those work wonders!
