Disclosure: I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Just For Me. I received product samples to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for my participation. Dear Diary, Growing up, I spent lots of time in the kitchen—not eating rather getting my hair straightened. I would brace myself, praying not to get burned by the hot comb my mom lifted out of the stove’s flames. Smoke rose from the metal teeth as my mom pulled it through my kinky locks. After she straightened my hair, she would curl it—sometimes in big, loose ringlets; other times in long, tight spirals. She also braided, twisted, teased and spritzed, ensuring her daughter always left home perfectly polished. I unfortunately did not inherit her styling skills. I usually turn to the Afro puff when I do my daughter’s hair. But this summer, I’ve turned to the professionals. We’re spending lots of time outdoors, so Caitlynn’s cornrowed coif is the best beach hair style for toddlers. But just because it’s an easy, breezy style doesn’t mean I don’t do anything to her hair. Here’s how I keep cornrows frizz and flyaway free. Tame Fly Aways I apply Just for Me Smoothing Edges Crème to smooth sides and tame fly aways. The alcohol-free gelee provides both medium-hold and all-day shine. Control Curls Like many toddlers, Caitlynn’s hair is still growing. Therefore, her edges aren’t long enough to braid. So, define curls and control frizz, especially on her neckline, I use Just for Me Curl Smoother. This lightweight, milky formula locks in hair’s moisture and keeps curls bouncy. I also apply Just for Me Curl Perfecter. The super rich styling cream leaves hair’s natural texture well-defined and stretches, elongates and defines even the tightest curls. Replace Beads If your child is a wild sleeper like my little girl, she’s guaranteed to wake up with a few bare braids. I always buy an extra box of beads and rubber bands to replace those that disappeared while sleeping or playing.
