     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.

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.

Rubberbands...Good or Bad?

The use of rubberbands has been a question of concern for years. I don't feel that it has ever been answered completely. However, I am sure that we have all heard horror stories about the use of rubberbands in our children's hair. Well for me I don't have any negative things to say about the use of them, I actually feel as if they have been a great help with me growing my two year old daughter's hair; you just have to use them correctly. 

     For me using them has had it's pros. With Naturally Rayna I have used them for eight years and no problems and with my two year old Carli, I feel that they actually had a great impact on helping her hair grow.

Growing Your Little Natural’s Hair Healthy and Long

Every little natural is unique in their own little way, therefore even though their hair might not be as healthy and long as the next child. There is still ways to get their hair to where it needs to be with the proper care. I am a witness, because it’s in the works with my 2 year old daughter. It was times when I felt that I would never get her hair to grow after trying product after product and a variety of tips, but after doing some research I have now found a method that works. If I stay consistent with my care she will be on her way to a head full of healthy natural hair.1. Wash and Deep Condition : wash, condition, and detangle hair using a wide tooth comb or a Deman brush. When I detangle I always part the hair into four sections to make detangling easier. Detangling shouldn’t be painful, so in order to avoid the tears and discomfort. Be sure to detangle from the tips up to the roots. 2. Moisturize: The last thing you want for your little one is dry hair. When the hair is dry i…
