Taking care of your curly kids hair is a bit more challenging than taking care of your own. There are a few things to keep in mind when styling your hair and your child’s hair. Your curly kid’s hair could be thick, long, and unruly making the struggle even worse. One out of every four people on the planet has curly hair and one out of every three Caucasians has curly hair. Curly hair can be a blessing or a curse , all depends on the way you take care of it, if you treat it right or wrong. Here are a few helpful tips when it comes to taking care of your child’s curly hair.
Tip 1# Pre-Poo
Before the actual washing of hair begins, it’s important to perform a (Pre-poo) what, now? Yep, you heard me. And hear me well. Pre-pooing is the best thing ever!
Using a pre-poo helps to detangle your hair before shampooing to help melt all of the knots and tangles. A Pre-Poo is used before you wash the hair, and it helps to detangle the curls. This saves so much time and is really a game changer when it comes to detangling your little one’s hair.
Tip 2# Stop washing hair so often
Believe it or not, you can wash your kid’s hair as little as every other week or once a month! Try to keep your hands out of their hair so often. Make sure you create a wash day routine that works best for you. If you feel the need to wash more often, consider trying a co-wash. In short, co-washing just means that you're replacing your shampoo and conditioner with only one product that can simultaneously cleanse and moisturize your hair without stripping away the natural oils. So look for products that say “cleansing conditioner” or “cowash” on the label. You can find some good ones by checking out our hair care line. Our curl popping conditioner can be as a co-wash.
Tip 3- Detangle
Another tip I want to share is that it's always important to detangle the hair while it's still wet and fresh out of the shower. No other time is more important than when you are using a brush with both rubber and nylon bristles. It would be no different than scrubbing your hair with a towel, then using a brush to go over it again. You're just causing unnecessary damage to your hair and making things worse.
Tip 4# Hydrate using the LCO Method
Curly hair tends to get dry and that is no exception with our curly kids hair. However, there is a method you should use to help keep their hair moisturized. The leave-in conditioner, cream and oil method is specifically designed to help maximize moisture retention. This is a very important step. Using Graveis & Co hair growth oil or pure castor oil will help the hair to hold moisture retention.
Tip 5# Protect hair at night
Curls need to be protected at night. Make sure that your son or daughter wears a satin bonnet or cap every night when sleeping. Cotton can dry out the hair, and this can cause irreparable damage.
