Winter Hair Care Tips

     Winter is fastly approaching, however even though here in Florida it seems as if the weather is confused and not quite sure what it wants to do, we are still approaching the days that are leading up to the season of Winter. Therefore, it is important that you maintain your child’s hair correctly, so that it can remain healthy. During the winter months it is a little easier to keep the hair clean, because children don’t sweat as much due to lesser outdoor activities, so the hair doesn’t have as much dirt build up. Nevertheless, if  we don’t maintain our children’s hair in the winter; the cold can definitely cause some damage. Following my simple steps listed below can prevent any damage to your little ones hair.

-Less Frequent Washing
-Be careful with the materials that you use to cover their heads (beanies, skull caps, hoodies, and scarves) NO COTTON, because it removes moisture which cause breakage; SILK are the best.
-More DEEP CONDITIONING this coats the hair strands and fills in hair cuticles, making the hair stronger.It also reduces breakage, shedding , and split ends. 
-Keep ends moisturized. (MOISTURE IS THE KEY)
-Co-Wash, this prevents stripping the hair of much needed moisture. (co-washing has it pros and cons, yes I do co-wash my daughter’s hair though, the cons are not major)
-NEVER use shampoos with sulfate, -cones, alcohol, etc.
-No wash and go hairstyles...the hair can freeze and break, besides you wouldn’t want your little one to get sick. The best styles are protective styles during the winter months.
-DO NOT DETANGLE DRY HAIR
-Silk Pillowcase and/ or a Bonnet is great for night protection.

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…

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…
