I need help.

Dd's hair is fierce.  She's 3, and it's never been cut.

     

Two reasons we haven't taken her for a cut:

1. It's beautiful the way it is and just keeps getting prettier as it grows.

2. I don't want somebody who *thinks* they know what to do with curly hair to f--- it up.

 

According to my fruitless Googling efforts, no salons-for-kids-with-curly-hair exist. 

All her little straight-haired friends have had their hair cut in little airplane and rocket-ship chairs.  The only places I can find that cater to curly hair charge $100+ for cuts and are adult-oriented.

 

So...do I take her to the kids' salon and hope for the best outcome?  Or do I take her to the adult curly-friendly salons and hope for better pricing considering her kid status?

Is her hair course or normal?

Try Humectress by Nexxus - as a conditioner in the shower and as a leave in conditioner after you wash her hair.  Then, put her hair up in a pony or a bun while it's drying.

 It's a fine texture, medium volume.  The shape is definitely a spiral, I'd say about a 1/2 inch diameter.

I would go to an adult salon with an experienced stylist. I've tried those kids places with the airplane chairs, etc. and they never do a good job. JMO.

Thanks for the suggestion. 

When I'm not overly lazy, we use the Just For Me curl smoother creme (awesome cause it's cheap AND it works!!) to tame her locks and kick the frizz.

Otherwise, we just pile it all up on top of her head for an 80's style pony tail.

Oh and we also use the sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner from Loreal.  I use the "reconstruct" on dd's hair since it's so fine and prone to breakage.

If it was course, I would have suggested going to a salon that caters to black/ethnic hair... but since its fine, I would try to work something out with the adult salon. Most kids salons are like chains - the basic skills are there but not the expertise. You get what you pay for. This way they can cut the hair so that it grows out better too.
