with my 2 is was would they sit still long enough not to loss an ear. DD2 hair did get curler after
Well i know for myself and my 4 kids, we lost our curles.

As for how they were at the hairdresses, they were well behaved - hardly moved at all

DD didn't have enough hair to have cut until a few months ago! When there was finally enough to trim she was perfect for the hairdresser. Since it was cut it has become much thicker and wavier.
I am lucky enough that my MIL was a hairdresser so she just cuts DS hair when needed! And with each cut it becomes alot thicker, which is nice
But my hairdresser was explaining last week how all hair changes at around 5/6yrs and then again about 9/10yrs. So weather you cut it or not it will change to what it is meant to be eventually - like the colour of dads with mums curls!




I found after I got DD's hair cut it looked way better and thicker... before that it was baby hair then it seemed to look more like little girl hair in a style (bob).
I don't think it has changed much... the girls have really frizzy curly/wavy hair no matter what.
DS has quite wirey hair... used to be soft until he became a toddler! lol

I cut the kids' hair myself - can't justify paying someone else lots of $$ for a 2mm trim! lol


i was worried about this as my DD has gorgeous ringlets so i didnt cut her hair at all until a few weeks ago, shes 2.5yrs now. her hair was always knotty and frizzy because of the soft baby hair on the ends so i just trimmed it at home after her bath, only took 1cm off. and its much better the curls are the same but fluff is gone. as a PP said hair changes at various stages of your life anyway no matter what you do to it. (according to my hair dresser anyways) =)
When u get their hair cut it will always LOOK thicker after wards becuase ur cutting the ends off.
The ends of hair grows to a point then u cut this off straight. their hair isn't actually thicker, they dont just get more hair follicles after u cut it. it just looks thicker.
It's best to cut their hair regularly for 2 reasons, they'll get used to it, and your getting rid of any unhealthy ends, hair can get split ends and snap, causing it to become shorter.

My 2 1/2 yr old got his 1st hair cut at 6 months of age and has had regular trims ever since. He is so used to sitting still in the hairdressers chair that he actually fell asleep getting his last hair cut.

Try to make the 1st few times a positive experience for them, take biscuits, lolly pops or a toy. Lolly pops worked wonders for my lil man.
