The following is a list of tools I believe are necessary for styling my daughter's hair:
1. Spray Bottle;
2. Conair Detangler Comb (Wide Tooth);
3. Rat Tail Comb (for parting)
4. Hair Clips (I use different sizes and styles)
5. Ouchless Bands (I prefer this type because it reduces breakage and snags and they don't have a metal part on them)
These are just the basics, remember that this is what works for us and hopefully it will give you an idea as to what you will need to style your child's hair.
