Maintaining Your Daughter's Natural Hair...While Being A Working Mom

There are many challenges that we have to face when we are working mothers. Sometimes I know it may seem very overwhelming, but you are not alone. Mothers face challenges of making sure everyone gets ready and out the house on time, preparing dinner, helping the kids with their homework, bath time and so much more. I am sure a lot of mothers feel that there is no way in the world they can maintain their daughter’s natural hair, run a household, and work a full-time job everyday. Maintaining natural hair is very time consuming and sometimes mom might just not be in the mood to get it done.
Nevertheless, if you follow my simple steps to maintaining your daughter’s hair, it will be so much easier and make things less stressful. The main tips a mother must remember is to maintain products and accessories, plan ahead and stay organized, and Create Styles that will Last. Being a single full time working mother of two; one being in her terrible two stages, I can assure you if you follow my advice things will be a lot easier..

Maintain Products and Accessories
Find products that work for you and your daughter. It may take trying a variety of products to find the ones that work for you. I have a variety of different products that I enjoy and I like to switch it up sometimes. As far as accessories go you can take the most simple hairstyles and add an accessory to jazz it up. To help cut back time during the busiest times find that one product that does it all and use it on the days when you don’t have time to do the whole process; a leave in conditioner is usually our favorite or a moisturizing creme.

Plan Ahead and Stay Organized
Once you have all of your products purchased and you have decided on the ones that you like the most. The next step is to find a nice organizer to place all of your hair products and accessories in. This makes life so much easier. This way you can have your one go to place to find everything that you need to get the job done. Next you will have to create a plan that works for you and stick to it. Knowing exactly what you want to do and the order that you will do it in makes things flow.

Create Styles that will Last
I am sure all of us have styles that we adore so much, but it takes hours to do them; and who has that kind of time during the week. Therefore, it is always important to look for styles that will last for at least a week or for styles that are quick and simple. You can always do things to change up the styles by adding hair bows, headbands, ribbons, scarfs, or whatever accessories that you decide to use. Be sure to make sure that the hair stays moisturized, so be sure to put that on your schedule.

Though it may seem like a lot maintaining your little natural’s hair is extremely important to them and as mothers we always want our little girls to look nice and be presentable. As mothers when we get our hair done and get all dolled up, so should our daughters.

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…
