I have always been a fan of short hair on little girls.
I just think it’s super cute and easy and fun. I kept Maddy and Cora’s hair short with little bangs for years and years, which is why now, they insist on having long, long, forever long hair.
They always want long hair. Always want to wear it down. Always takes 20 extra minutes in the morning to get the perfect pony or perfect braid, and it causes a boatload of stress.
Thankfully we’ve got a few ways that can help eliminate–or control–haircare stress.
Three tips that I really, truly think will help your familia.
Here’s the skinny. . .
Haircare Stress and Kids– Eliminate Stress with These 3 Tips:
Now, be aware that eliminating is a strong word and that it may take a little bit of time, effort, and energy on everyone’s part before the stress of haircare is totally eliminated. But know that with a few little ‘tweaks’, haircare stress can at least be controlled.
1. The Fancy Brush.
You can read all about the Fancy Brush here.
Though we’ve graduated from the Fancy Brush to the Wet Brush, both girls have one of their own, and they both do take good care of them.
2. The Products.
We have only been introduced to this line of products recently, but we have fallen hard for them: SoCozy haircare for kids.
The SoCozy line is a line of haircare products for kids created by Cozy Friedman, the owner of Cozy’s Cuts for Kids, which is a premier children’s hair salon in New York. Fancy, right? The thing is, they’re actually solid products that really work.
According to Cora, the combination of Cinch and Behave makes the perfect pony. She’s been using the combo herself for the last few days.
Haircare products not your thing? It’s cool. I get it.
Then at least check out SoCozy Boo! Boo! is lice prevention shampoo, and the description is a riot: scares away lice. . . naturally. I’ll take it. Sign me up.
Can there be a rule that every kid in school must use SoCozy Boo!? Please?
Take a quick look at a professional stylist telling me how she made Cora’s perfect ballerina bun:
It was a ton of fun.

3. The Nighttime Ponytail.
Really, this is the most simple tip ever: have your kids sleep in ponytails at night.
It’s amazing how much it helps eliminate hair chaos in the mornings. Fewer tangles. Hair manageable. Happier kids. Happier parents.
And? If the girls want to get a little crazy, make it a braid at night with damp hair. The waves will make just about any Disney Channel star green with envy.
How do you manage haircare stress for your kids? What works, and what doesn’t? I’d love to know!
