Today I felt it would be fun to show off my little ladies, and their easy braids, because Spring and Summer warrant lots of braids to keep girls and women cool right? Before I show off the braids I want to introduce you to the products that we have come to love that have helped make these braids possible and manageable especially for little girls (like mine) who hate their hair being brushed or styled.
The products my girls (and a thankful mom and dad too) have come to love is SoCozy. SoCozy was started by a woman named Cozy (yes for real) that wanted to offer attention to care of children’s experience during haircuts in a time in the early 90’s where haircuts for kids may not have been “cozy” or “fun”. Since her salon success Cozy now offers hair products, known as SoCozy. SoCozy does just that and provides care and attention to a child’s hair, especially my kids who use the 3-in-1 Shampoo, Conditioner and Wash, and my girls, the SoCozy detangler and styling mousse almost daily to help with their unmanageable tangles or frizz. The 3-in-1 allows for tear free baths and leaves hair feeling soft and smelling fruity.
Now on to the hairstyles:
French Fishtail Braid:
Step 1: Spray in SoCozy Detangler and brush hair of tangles when hair is wet or dry. *psst the detangler contains conditioner which helps so don’t spray too much so hair doesn’t appear real greasy.
Step 2: Gather a section of hair in the middle
Step 3: Divide the section in two pieces, two halves.
Step 4: Take a thin section of hair from the side and bring it across one of the half sections and then cross sections side by side taking thin strands from the sides as you go. Or follow this tutorial #2 for clearer instructions or visual.
Step 5: Finish off the braid with a hair band.
Two Cords of Braids Together:
Follow the same step as above, use So Cozy Detangler spray when hair is wet or dry and brush out tangles.
Step 1: Take a towel of SoCozy Behave Styling Mousse and apply this foam to hair and scrunch for a curl or wave like effect.
Step 2: Take one front section of hair from one side of the head, divide into three sections and follow a normal braid to the end. Tie or clip this or have child hold end.
Step 3: Take another section on the other side of the head and divide into three sections following a normal braid to the end like Step 2.
Step 4: Take both braided ends and tie them together.
Step 5: Scrunch hair at the ends to curl or wave a bit.
There you have it. Two lovely braids for little girls that can be done easily and fast. I also want to let you know that SoCozy has a cool set for swimmers or days spent at the pool or beach and these are the SoCozy Swim Leave-in: treatment and detangler and SoCozy swim 3-in-1 shampoo, conditioner +wash. We can’t wait to try these out as swimming time rolls around.
