Curl Talk: Protective Styles To Try On Your Tiny Tot

Fiddling with your tiny tot’s hair and finding the right styles is usually not a good time; the curly hair struggle is real!

Oftentimes, we see little kids flaunting long, shiny tresses and wonder: how exactly can this tot have natural hair longer than me when she hasn’t even been on this earth long enough to know what a “co-wash” is?

Chances are their parents found a regimen that works, along with age-appropriate styling that allows their hair to be tucked away for weeks at a time.

Protective styling is key for all naturalistas, no matter the age, if you want to see length retention and strong curls that haven’t been overly manipulated and stressed. The problem, however, for younger curly girls (and guys) are finding age appropriate hairstyles that will allow them to rip and run all day without sweating out, playing with their tresses, and most importantly, protective their young curls!

Check out these protective styles that are perfect for back to school season. 

Braided Marley Mohawk

To achieve this look, have your stylist add marley braiding hair to your child’s natural strands. This will allow the style to last a little longer, and gives length for older kids.

Flat twists are the perfect alternative to cornrows since there is less tension on the scalp while ensuring the hair is tucked away. Twist up toward the crown of the head and secure into a bun with the ends of the hair, or add a little hair on top for more dimension.

What is cuter than a little one with cornrows? Braid the hair toward the back of the head, or play around with parting to mix up your tot’s look.

When trying to achieve this style, utilize your favorite curling cream as much as possible to give your hair a shiny, tight finish. Use edge control to keep hair from fraying around the face and tie down at night to ensure the style lasts.

Mohawks are appropriate for any age! This style calls for a combination of braids and twists, so be sure your stylist is aware of the transition at the ends of the hair.
