I wonder if I can get tips on how to get my 2 yr old daughter to sit down and get her hair done. I've tried offering sweets, biscuits, her favourite programme etc but she won't sit still; too much screaming. She'd rather no one touched her hair than have those things. I've also taken her to the salon and hidden so she won't see me but the wailing was unbearable I asked them to stop.
I used to do it whilst she was asleep so she's not been used to it all along but these days she even wakes in the middle of it and tries to stay up to prevent me touching it. It's not that it's hurting her as her hair is soft and I apply loads of detangler, she just doesn't want it touched. Yesterday I spent about 3 hours doing 8 lines. The only time I've been able to do her hair in about 30mins she was on medication which made her drowsy. I can't be sedating her unnecessarily and I don't want to cut it.
Anyone got any ideas please?
