Braid Okay, so those of you who have tried to braid a toddlers hair know it is pretty hard to get that baby thin hair to stay right? Good news...you can still do the braid. I braided about half way and then secured the braid with a clear elastic and then finished braiding from there. You can't even see the elastic because it gets tucked in the the braid. This trick will help the braid stay in all day too!
