Styling Tips for Kids!🎀💈
Developing a natural hair routine for your little ones is just as important for them as it is for you, and it doesn’t have to be complicated! Create a routine that not only fits your schedule, but also fits your child’s personality. Keep reading below for a few tips!👇🏾

If your child’s hair texture is similar to yours, don’t be afraid to use the same products for their hair that you use, especially if you use all-natural ingredients. The same is true for conditioning and moisturizing products.

If your child’s hair texture is not similar to yours, a little trial and error might be necessary. Once you have identified the right products and the order in which to use them, stick with it! A once-a-week regimen should work, unless your child is extremely active or participates in activities that might require more frequent care, such as competitive swimming. 🌊

Start with the Right Tools
Clean hair and a clean scalp should be the foundation of any hair care routine you create. Help make your child’s wash day as stress-free as possible by having the right supplies and tools on hand. Try putting your kids  in the bath for hair washing, especially if they dislike water on their faces or are too small to lean back in a sink.

Make sure that you remove all the product from your child’s hair, so, wash and rinse twice. 🚿

A clarifying shampoo like the Award-Winning Melanin Haircare African Black Soap Reviving Shampoo nourishes and cleans the hair and scalp - perfect for getting your little one’s hair clean! If have some time on your hands and you’re looking for a simple DIY African Black Soap recipe, watch this video! 

When detangling, work in smaller sections of hair to reduce tears for both you and your child. The Melanin Haircare Multi-Use Softening Leave In Conditioner works great as a detangler and melts knots on contact! It’s also not a bad idea to finger-detangle first, before reaching for the wide tooth comb or detangling brush.
Seal in moisture with your favorite butter or other oil, then prepare to style.

NOTE: There are many products aimed at hair care for children. Be sure to read the ingredients carefully.

Protective Styles Might Be Best
Kids lead active lifestyles – from recess at school to after-school activities. A protective style can save you time and still allow your kid to enjoy being a kid! Braids, cornrows and twists are cute and protective, and they work well for all genders. A cartoon or a favorite game on the tablet can be the perfect distraction while styling! 

Here’s a quick natural protective hairstyle for kids!

When starting a hair care routine for your children, it may be tempting to set hair length goals; however, when it comes to kids, the first goal should be to maintain the health of your child’s hair.  With the proper care and maintenance, your child will be well on their way to having healthy, happy tresses!
