    Default Tips for toddler hair

    So Miss 16mths will not keep a hair tie in her hair. She will not keep a headband on her head or clips in her hair. She is starting to look like a very shaggy pet. I don't want to cut her hair short (but might have to). We have tried praising her for leaving the item in her hair, but 30 seconds later she has pulled it out. I need to keep the hair off her face.

    Are there any items on the market that crafty little people can't remove?

    Any tips?

    Default Tips for toddler hair

    What hair ties are you using?
    I use the small rubber/plastic hair bands and make them really tight, the girls don't bother trying to pull those ones out. Anything else that goes in their hair comes straight back out though!

    Yep, agree with PP, use the tiny little plastic/rubber hair bands, look like tiny coloured rubber bands. I found combing and tying it while wet (or spayed with conditioning spray) allowed me to secure it better. They can be tricky to get out, but you get the hang of it soon enough, or just give them a snip with nail scissors as they are only a couple dollars for 200!

    I found some in Priceline that looked like coloured braces elastics. Small but stretchy and stay in

    Hmm might have to try those... Miss 14.5mths doesn't keep things in her hair long...

    I do find that if I put in clips/bobbles then distract straight away she tends to forget I put something in her hair lol.

    Default Tips for toddler hair

    You can also get the little snag-less rubber band ones at woolies/Coles/big W etc. you can get them colourful or clear. Impossible for little fingers to remove.

    DD is 2, and while she doesn't try to take out the tails she won't wear a clip or band for more than 5 minutes. Payback for all the headbands I made her wear before she was 1...

    In no way helpful but this made me laugh! My DD has crazy curly hair so i know what you mean! I recently got her hair slightly trimmed which helped a bit
