Big Sis has been showing a lot of interest in caring for her own hair since beginning of summer. She learnt how to braid hair, even practiced a little on Lil Sis o_O.
She first started by finger detangling a small section...
Next, she used the wide tooth comb to further detangle that section
Lastly, she twisted up the detangled section
I was shocked as to how well she did.
Now, let's talk
Once our children start to show an interest in caring for their hair, we need to foster that interest. How long will we be the sole care-taker of their hair? Once, they leave the house, would they have to delegate the care of their hair to someone else? Don't be afraid of letting your kids touch their hair. Of course, don't start off with teaching them to trim their hair... instead, start with something small. For us, something small was detangling, for you it may be something else.
Do you let your kids do their own hair? At what age did you start?
