In a world where natural hair is seen as inherently bad and undesirable, it is a parent’s job to sing praises, educate and build positivity on their hair. The hassle of maintaining natural hair, however, is one difficult task parents have.
From making sure their kids comply and understand the importance of keeping their natural hair maintained, to finding the right products, parents have their job cut out for them. Here are some few tips on how parents can maintain their kid’s natural hair.
Cleansing their natural hair
Little ones live for playing and doing too many activities that not only live them tired but their hair dirty and dry from sun exposure. This is why it is important to wash their hair using the right products. Essentially, it is important not to get carried away and cleanse their fragile hair using shampoo more than once a month.
It is also important to remember that product residue builds up causing clogged pores which doesn’t allow moisture to be locked in. This may results in hair breakage and dryness hence cleansing their natural hair is very important.
Kids are more prone to dry hair and itchy scalp than adults. For this reason, their hair must always stay moist. Moisture the hair with water and seal with oil. Pay thorough attention to the ends because they dry faster and may cause hair to fall. Your biggest job is to keep the hair moisturized.
Trying to detangle your child’s hair may just be something close to World War. Not only does it take too much time but for them, it hurts a great deal. Detangle the hair using a wide-toothed comb and moisture first. Part the hair into sections to make sure you detangle from the scalp patiently.
styling your child’s natural hair
Braids and twists can be a lifesaver for your kid’s hair because they keep the hair clean, protect it from damage while giving you the time to take a break from time-consuming haircare. Even with these protective styles, be careful not to pull it too tight as this may cause discomfort and hair breakage. During this time, keep their hair moisturized and do not let their style on for way too long.
We can never emphasize enough the importance of having a nighttime hair care routine. Make sure the hair is clean, moisturized, and detangled. Cover your child’s hair with a satin bonnet and make use of satin pillowcases. This helps reduce friction and breakage overnight.
