Being a mom to a mixed kid who’s hair is NOTHING like mine has been… A challenge to say the least! Curly hair kids have a whole different set of rules for hair and it is hard to come by natural products that ACTUALLY work.
I have tried just about every product under the sun to penetrate through her hair and keep moisture in my girly’s hair. Its hard to find something that smells good and that actually works, but I think I found what works for us. First thing’s first, dampen! Using only water on your little ones hair is REALLY bad because it causes it to dry out more.
So here’s what works for us:
- Shea Moisture Leave-In Treatment- This help hydrate and moisten the hair so that it isn’t dry when you add other products
- Just For Me Leave-In Detangler– This nourishes and also moistens the hair for softness & bounce.
The next part is to apply something that penetrates and moisturized the hair. What I found and now LOVE because it last pretty long throughout the day without being oily.
- Just For Me Curl Smoother Natural Hair Milk- This defines curls, Moisturizes and controls frizz.
Last step isn’t really a step, more on an investment to make your life easier. Overnight, every night thing.
- Satin Pillowcase – This is VERY IMPORTANT. If your baby has hair that requires a lot of product, a satin pillowcase will do you wonders. What a satin pillowcase does is, helps to maintain moisture in hair throughout the night to keep it hydrated.
