Elizabeth is getting really long hair and if I don’t do something with it before she goes to bed, it is nearly impossible to brush in the morning. When we used to put it in a bun on top of her head, that made her hair itch. When I braid it, she wakes up with wavy hair that looks messy. A ponytail isn’t enough restraint to keep the hair from getting tangled.
I’ve finally figured out the perfect thing to do for it. If I braid it extremely loosely, it doesn’t get the waves that make her hair look crimped (ha, remember that fad?) but it’s enough structure to keep her from waking all tangled.
