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 it causes breakage. Moisturize the hair every  2 days or more if needed, because some hair dries out faster than others. My favorite way to keep the hair moisturized is to spray the hair with a spray bottle. My spray mixture contains Distilled Water, Castor Oil, and Coconut Oil.
2 oz. Distilled water
2 tsp. extra virgin coconut oil
1 tsp castor oil
4 drops of essential oil (jasmine is my favorite)
Combine all ingredients into spray bottle and shake. Be sure to store in fridge and shake well before use.

3. Cut Back on Touching: when I say cut back on touching this is where the protective styles come in. You want to give your little one a style that they can wear for at least 2 weeks. (contact me for ideas) My favorite is two strand twists, they are cute and fun. It may sound crazy, but the less you touch the hair, the more it will grow. Your little one’s hair is very fragile.

Be sure to stay consistent with these steps while maintaining your little natural’s hair  and you will start to see some amazing results.

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…
