  1. great tips! My 2 year old is an absolute TERROR when it comes to getting her hair done. I mean, I could literally not have done anything but rub product in my palm then on her hair and she’s level 10 upset. Since she does like having her own things I think I’ll purchase her a special chair and throw a tablet in her face. I’ll usually have a her favorite movie on but it doesn’t work. She hates hair day but these tips will likely help and I will come back to let you know. Thanks.

  2. My 14 month old screams uncontrollably. Just going near her hair causes issues. I’ve tried special toys. The chair hasn’t worked for me yet. I just want to get her used to it now, or I know it will be much worse for her (and me) later.
