I just wanted to post this as a FYI.
Every summer my husband takes the kids camping for what they call Fish Camp. Moms are not invited. So to help my poor husband who tries to do our daughters hair. I made things really easy. I took her hair and put it into small braids all over her head.
I started at the bottom of her head and made small parts then braided them all the way to the ends. I secured the bottom with little elastics.
