Hair snaps are a great way to finish off braids and twists in your child’s hair. These ingenious little doodads eliminate the need to hang large barrettes or ballies on the ends of the hair braids. They are also great for holding beads on the hair. To use a hair snap simply wrap the very end of the braid or twist around the hinge of the snap once or twice, and capture what’s left of the hair in the closure. Most styles of snaps are very secure and will hold many beads on the hair. Hair beads are best put in the hair with the help of a beading tool. This works like a giant needle threader. Multiple beaders can be loaded with beads (a great task for kids who are getting their hair done!) and this makes styling go faster.
Hair care essentials are important to maintain hair that is styling. Of course proper moisturizing and oiling of the hair and scalp for children with kinky, dry hair is essential. But of course, different types of hair require different hair care techniques. Some people take down hair styles and wash the hair with only moisturizer, to just get debris out and “freshen it up.” Always remember to moisturize and oil the scalp afterwards. Leave-in moisturizers or oil spritzes are a great way to make sure the hair stays moist and healthy on a daily basis. This can be applied to the hair every day perhaps while the child is seated at breakfast. In this manner the scalp will stay oiled and the hair will appear shiny and healthy every day.
Several products help in proper styling of kinky hair. These include seamless bone combs, the Unbraider comb for taking down braids, twists, and cornrows, the Coil Comb for creating textured styles and ringlets, and the Professional Latch Hook/Beader which is a teeny hook specially designed to tighten locs and extensions. It also works great with beads that have smaller holes than standard pony beads.
Kinky hair takes work and time, but the rewards when she looks in the mirror and sees what a fun, colorful style you have created in her hair, and the smile she’ll give her reflection, is priceless! There is no better way to help your little girl feel like a princess and love her hair than to keep her hair neat and styled with lots of fun beads and hair snaps, hair clips and hair ballies.
Shampooing should not be done daily or even every other day, as is done with Caucasian hair. Instead, weekly or even less frequently is recommended, depending on how dirty and/or dry the hair and scalp is.
