Why won't she keep a barrette in her hair?

My daughter is almost 23 months and refuses to let me put barrettes or rubber bands in her hair. She has hair in her face all day long. (She has mastered the art of pushing it out of the way.... so cute). At what age will this change?

Quoting christie:

there are barrettes that are like velcro that actually worked for my daughter when she was younger that you might want to try they dont hurt the head or hair and they cant take them out.



They can get those out too.  I only put things in my daughters hair when we are going somewhere.  Right now it's cold enough she has to wear a hat.  I put the barrette in and then put the hat on.  By the time we get where we're going and get the hat off she's forgotten about the barrette.  good luck.

I think you just got to put them in and tell her not to touch them. There are days when my daughter is like that but we've been doing pig tails and the one pig tail ponies for so long she's use to it. Now she even asks for it but when we first started to do it she refused to sit still long enough. We just put them in the best we would and if she pulled them out she pulled them out.....it was more of getting her use to it them anything else.

My little girl lets me put headbands on her hair well she is only three months but more than likely she will learn to take it off sooner than later :) "xx

I sure have. It is rare when I can distract her enough to get a little clip-barrette in..... VERY RARE. The only time she kept a headband in was at 1 1/2yrs. when we had her picture professionally taken. Thank you........

Neither one of my daughters have ever liked having barrets, headbands, ponytail holders, etc in their hair. Within a matter of a few minutes after I put them in they take them out. They are 9 y.o. and 6 y.o. and the 6 y.o. still doesn't like for me to put her hair up or have anything in her hair. The 9 y.o. will let me do it but takes it out after a few hours. Good luck!
