Keeping your child’s hair long is a personal choice. Obviously taking care of and maintaining proper hygiene is necessary. Long hair tend to entangle forming knots which is painful for a child while you comb. Many a times kids do not like frequent hair washes and that can lead to dirty and stinky scalp. In case if child gets dandruff or head lice it becomes difficult to clean their head. Short hair are easier to maintain but as stated it a personal choice.
