Tips to Maintaining Your Child(ren's) Hair


In today's time there are always new trends and different styles amongst children. Lately one of the most popular styles is to have the "natural " look. Sometimes we often find it more convenient to use a relaxer on our girls, because this way we have less work to do when it comes to caring for and maintaining our children's hair. However, keeping your child's hair natural will help them embrace their natural texture and they won't have to deal with the harsh chemicals in relaxers that are detrimental to their hair. Regardless of the texture or race, if  hair is taken care of properly it grows at a rate of nearly a half inch per month.



I would like to know any questions, concerns, or anything that you may want to know about maintaining your child's hair.

I am going to start by sharing with you the steps that I follow to maintain Rayna's hair.



1. Wash and condition at least once a week, this adds moisture back into the strands of her hair while keeping the scalp clean.



2. Seal moisture into hair, by massaging an all natural oil. (my favorite is Olive Oil)



3. Part and section the hair into several sections, comb hair carefully; never pull it from the roots, I start at the tips and work my way up to the top (using a large toothed comb).



4. Once the section is detangled I twist it into a two strand twist for drying.



5. Once the head is completely detangled and in twists for hair drying. I then create her a low manipulation or protective style..braids or twists.



When selecting your products be sure to avoid products with mineral oil or petroleum jelly, they tend to clog the pores. I hope that this blog will be a great help to get you started and on your way to creating a head full of naturally healthy hair for your child(ren).

Natural Hair Mommy Tips!

Oh the joys of being natural! Being natural has several advantages, however for a working mother of two it can sometimes be a major struggle, but that is only on certain terms. For me it’s the thickness and the length that really drags me down which causes it to become a struggle for me.     I transitioned to natural over two years ago when my 9 year old daughter asked me, “Mom, why is your hair straight and mine is curly?” hmmm… that gave me a lot to think about.I like to consider myself as a role model to my daughters. Therefore, making the decision to go natural was easy. I starting by cutting my hair to a very short cut and begin to let it slowly transition from there. I would wear a lot of protective styles such as sew ins, braids, and crochets styles. Two years later I am completely natural, my hair is past the midpoint of my back, super thick, and it is a challenge.    For most of us hair care takes a huge amount of time. When you have to juggle being a mom, work, and thing…

Nightly Routine

Keeping natural hair healthy takes some work, but however it is extremely important. Therefore, I have some simple steps to follow to insure that your little natural will not only get some good sleep, but also wake up to healthier undamaged hair.
     In order for your little one to get a good night's rest you have to be sure that you have removed all hair barrettes and hair ties. Hair accessories can often be bulky and hard which can cause a discomfort to your little one's head. This is also one way to prevent breakage and other types of damage during the night.
     I have found the method of moisturizing to be a great daily process to help your little one’s hair. Moisture is a guarantee that the hair will remain healthy. Moisturizing the hair should be done as often as possible to prevent the hair from being dry and I find it easier to moisturize at night. Moisturizing at night gives the hair time to absorb the products. In order to moisturize I use a homemade mist, y…
