Tips for Controlling Crazy Hair

6. Pull the Hair through the pigtail

Liven up pigtails AND make it harder to take them out.  After you make the pigtail, and band it, split the hair above the band and pull the “tail” up through the hole.

7. Detangle.

“Use detangler!  Hair styling should not hurt.”  “  I find a spray bottle of water with about 2cm of fabric conditioner poured in , sprayed on hair and combed through helps as a detangler and sets the curls beautifully.”   – Lisa

8. Avoid non-Hair Bands

I found that loom bands are impossible to  pull out of hair if that’s helps! Had to cut them out my daughters hair!”  – Rachel

Make a group of pony-tails.  It will stay in, and look better, longer than a traditional pony.

10. Fabric HeadBands

“For headbands, I much prefer the pantyhose fabric type that wrap around her whole head (as pictured). The thickness of it helps keep it in place longer.”  – Jennifer
