Child Hair Care Birth to age 17
We at Classy & Sassy Braids want to educate the parent and child that this can be the perfect opportunity for your child to build-self appreciation. Teach your child how to take care and love his/her hairs natural texture. It’s important that you involve them in its grooming process, never allow then to perceive their hair type as “bad, or problem”. This will make all the difference in the years to come. Once the appreciation of their own beauty is instilled, they can choose to lock, straighten or braid any way they want.
