All That Glitters: Holiday Hair for the Little Princess in Your Life

Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year’s, Valentine’s Day … The winter is the perfect time to dress your little girl up in all the splendor the the children’s sections at department and discount stores have to offer. One great aspect of the natural hair revolution that continues to take place is that natural-haired mothers are taking better and better care of their daughters’ hair. Not only that, but girls of all ages are seeing mothers, aunts, teachers and others around them embrace their natural hair and heritage more than ever. This amplifies the confidence and pride we are seeing in women and children!

You can showcase little girls’ hair in various ways this holiday season. The easiest way to jazz it up is with accessories. I love headbands and studded bobby pins for little girls. When using these accessories though be sure that they are not too tight. Some of the best hair accessories for tiny tots can be found on Etsy.

How cute are these silver and gold star-shaped hair pins? Like them? Check out the “Created for You By Us” Etsy store.

Of course before you can search for accessories you will search for the perfect outfit for Christmas card pictures, parties, etcetera. Janie and Jack has tons of holiday looks. If you are on the hunt, view this page to get some ideas. If you have have a ridiculous amount of money to spend on children’s clothing, go for the Janie and Jack originals. However, most of these styles can be replicated with items from GAP, Target and discount stores such as Marshall’s and TJ Maxx. Have fun with it!

No children to dress or accessorize? I’m right there with you. I know moms love receiving hair products for their little girls though. Some of my favorite items to give are below: Kids_whitedresses_holiday

  • CD4Kids Holiday Set: This year Carol’s Daughter has bundled their childrens’ line of products for easy gift giving. The set includes CD4Kids shampoo, conditioner, detangler and Monoi leave-in conditioner.
  • Oyin Handmade Hair Dew: This leave-in is not made specifically for kids but it is super moisturizing and gentle enough to use on kids. It has quickly become a natural hair favorite, especially among the hair type 4 set.
  • Shea Moisture Cocount & Hibiscus Kids Extra Moisturizing Detangler: Detangler is a product that mom value the most. Imagine how much you hate detangling your own hair. Now imagine doing that for a 5-year-old who may be screaming, crying or secretly resenting you. Give the gift of this detangler and you’ll win the prize for best auntie.
