Braids for Kids

braids for kids

Braids for kids is one of the most simple yet effective hairstyles you can administer for African American children. Not only does it help seal in moisture but it allows for less manipulation of their hair which helps with less breakage. Just make sure to keep the following in mind.

  • Don’t make them too tight
  • Don’t make them too thin
  • Don’t keep them in over two weeks (Varies depending on your child’s activity)

A Braids for Kids Stylist

Finding a hair stylist or a dedicated braids for kids salon is difficult. It’s not impossible. However, many salon owners cater to adult women. 90 percent of the time their clients exclude young girls under the age of 10. Many of the best hair braiders don’t even have a shop.

The hot designs you see on our Facebook Page are usually from a neighborhood stylist. Yes, a talented woman who braids the hair of children right out of her home. In the late 90’s this was a bit more of a concern. However, with the age of social media today it’s less of a worry. The help of Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and of course Thirsty Roots has exposed frauds.

  • I love the styles as well. I try to braid my girls (Fraternal Twins)hair for the summer. It is so easy form me to keep up with as the run and play. My comment is for you Tameka, I am not a stylist and I don’t profess to be good at braiding. However, I learned by trial and error when they were about 2 or 3. I am determined to grow their hair naturally with out chemicals and very little heat at least until they hit puberty. So I would encourage you to save the money, strike out on your own if you can and try braiding it yourself using some of these styles or create your own. Have fun and God Speed to you.
