How to keep Rapunzel's hair looking nice!
Did any of your children receive a Rapunzel doll for Christmas? My 5 year old got one. I kept telling her to try to be careful not to mess up her hair. And she really tried, but with all that hair, it's never going to stay looking nice. Not unless you set Rapunzel on a shelf and not play with the her.
So what did I do? I finally convinced my daughter to let me braid Rapunzel's hair. I let her pick which ribbons to add to her hair and I did a 5 piece braid.
Begin by brushing all the hair, then separate into five pieces. Tie ribbon to a small piece of hair in each section. Braid in a 5 piece braid. Click here to learn how to do that.
Look you can see her face!
After a few weeks, her hair still looks pretty nice. Of course, it's gotten a little messy, but no where near what it would look like if it wasn't braided.
