How to Cornrow and Style Tender Headed Kids Natural Hair with NO TEARS

How to Cornrow and Style Tender Headed Kids Natural Hair with NO TEARS

If you have a child that is tender headed, you understand how difficult and stressful it can be to style their hair. You hate to see your child in pain and even if you are not holding the hair tight, the mere fact that you are touching their hair can cause them unbearable pain.

My youngest daughter, Lil Sis, is tender headed, however, we have been able to style her hair in cornrow styles. Cornrow styles involves more manipulations than twists, but provides more creativity when it comes to styles.

In the video below, I will show how I was able to style my daughter's hair in cornrows without pain or tears
