Re: Long Hair on Boys

my mom told me that they do make baby/kid hair gel.

might look into that over hair spray.

I have a daughter, but it's the same problem. So slick that barrettes never stay and I'm constantly just brushing it out of her eyes.

Re: Long Hair on Boys

I usually just push DS's hair out of his eyes when he's at home with me. But he LOVES ponytails, lol, so often they put one in his hair at daycare.

Re: Long Hair on Boys

I had WILD hair as a child and my mom would use a little elmers glue and water in her palms. I sheet you not. I am allergic to about everything so the gels and sprays would make me break out. Elmers it was.

I had super curly hair, so it was more to keep the curls intact and stop the frizz. My oldest has the curls too and it works for him too

hahaha! This is hilarious! Does that make you an eco friendly child?? I think the guy who invented Elmer's glue is the same one who invented Country Save. I <3 me some Country Save!

Re: Long Hair on Boys

Here is a recent pic of my kids. This is how DS's hair looks 99% of the time

I'm going to try this. Nothing else seems to work.

His hair looks just the same as what we are working with. I think I need to just trim the bangs a little and leave the rest.

Oh my gosh, they are so cute! I love the look on his face though!

Here's my attempt at hairspraying his bangs back. It seemed to work! His is usually more curly, but he'd just woken up so it was a frizz ball instead.

Aww thank you!
Ds was not in best mood to take pictures , you should see the pic of just him. He looks down right grumpy.

Your DS is adorable also! I fix DS's hair like that sometimes and it last for maybe 5 minutes.
