Show me your toddler boy's long-and-straight-hair hairstyle! - Page 5

post #81 of 143

Thanks for the conditioning advice ilovechotchkes!  We use conditioner when we wash it - I wet it, put conditioner on, comb, then rinse and wash.  His hair is a little fine and conditioner makes if look really flat and stringy if I do it last.

 

Do you use the spray bottle conditioner when his hair is dry?  I tried a spray detangler on it when it was dry and it made massive knots!  Wondering if you had better results.

I've used it wet and dry. Wet seems to have better results. :)

My biggest issue... how do you avoid the mullet and still keep the hair out of their face? My just-turned-6-year-old wants his hair long, but he won't let me braid it, and only liked ONE specific kind of hair clip which doesn't work that well.

When my sons hair gets long we use california baby detangler and it conditions really nice.

we're Jewish so its easy. I put his yarmulke on, and sweep the front hair to the sides, and put those snap clips in to keep it on. 

Id' imagine, you could pull it back in a pony tail through the back of a baseball cap maybe? - Good for this time of year keep the sun off of his face :)

My guy has super long hair in back but I keep his bangs trimmed up so it's not in his eyes. Yep, he gets called a girl all the time but I don't care, I ask him if he wants it cut and he says no so until he tells me otherwise it's long hair for my little guy. :)

We put it in a ponytail when it needs to be away from his eyes, like eating or when it is really hot.

I just love all these pictures!  This picture of my almost 3 year old (in 9 days) was taken a couple days ago.  My Husband also has long hair.

My 5.5 year old just had his haircut. He was so excited, even picked out the hairstyle online and took the pix to the salon. He's now got a faux hawk and the shortest hair he's had since he was a baby. He's loving the spikey hair and I have to do it for him every day. It is hardest on me, I loved his long hair. Oh well. It's his hair.

This is my little man and his hair :) It's definitely usually "surfer style" so to speak. Not intentionally :)

I'm new here, and this thread made me want to sign up!  My son is 10, not a toddler but he started growing his hair out at 3.  He went to his Dad's for 3 weeks 3 years ago and came back with it shaved!!!  I cried!  People tend to think I have 4 girls, instead of 3 girls and 1 boy, but Austin doesn't let it affect him.  Austin has been growing his hair for 2 years now - with trims here and there.  Here are some photos of my son :)

these are so heartwarming! I dont know whether you can spy my little man's long(ish) curls in the avatar pic. Just a quick question to mamma's of toddler boys, did/does your child still get cradle cap? we have it still.... it doesn't bother me much, we tried the oil before bed trick but it just made his hair, well, oily! was wondering if the length of his hair 'keeps it in' or so to speak. 

 

Either way his hair isn't getting cut! x

I've never uploaded from my phone, we'll see if this works. This was at his 2nd birthday. The back covers the back of his neck & curls on the ends. No plans to cut it, don't really care if people think he is a girl. Best care tip EVER: once a week after bath we mix about a cup of apple cider vinegar with 2 cups warm water & dump it on the back of his head. No rinse. It used to tangle & even dred something awful before but now it stays silky. The vinegar scent doesn't last long.

Eta: Darn no pic!

Hi everyone! Still loving these pics!!
 

Now in need of advice -- I'll have to re-read this, but DS2 now has long hair and gets horrible tangles in the back (almost a dreadlock). Some of these pictures have the most silky hair, but my DS2 has kindof frizzy stuff going on (and once I had to cut his hair out of a battery-operated train he got stuck in it) and is somewhat uneven. Any new care ideas?

Someone on this thread mentioned California Baby Detangler, so I bought some for DS...luckily, his hair is so fine and smooth, even when it's tangled, he doesn't really need it.  HOWEVER, mama has much coarser, frizzier hair and very little time to brush (sometimes it goes a few days at a time...bigeyes.gif) - thus, some serious mama dreadlocks (which I would keep, if only DH was on board!).

 

Anyway, California Baby Detangler does WONDERS on my toughest mama dreads - highly recommend, if you haven't tried it. thumb.gif

Thanks for all the inspiration and cute pics! I love my 14mo DSʻs long hair but itʻs so straight and fine that I worry it bothers him in his face. I donʻt really want to do bangs so Iʻve been parting it to the side, but someone told me he looked like a 60ʻs insurance salesman :( I know it was just a joke, but I wonder if I should trim it. How do you trim it without making bangs, or do you just have to let it go through the awkward stage of being in the eyes? Iʻd love your thoughts!
