We cannot stress enough on how important you are as a role model. Whatever example you set for your child, we promise you that they will live and breathe it. So, if you play your cards right and teach your kid from an early age how to love their natural hair and how to take care of it they will definitely thank you! Here’s a list of tips to grow your kid’s hair longer!
Your child’s hair is fragile so limit mane manipulation. We know how much you adore your little princess, so go crazy with the braids and twist outs! Think about those cute hair accessories too.
It’s all about locking in that moisture. Tightly coiled hair can suck out the moisture making the hair dry and brittle. While you cannot change the hair type you can definitely protect it! Deep condition your child’s hair weekly with a leave-in conditioner or an overnight conditioner for faster hair growth. And let’s not forget how easy it is to detangle moisturised hair, which also means less pain for your kid.
Overdoing anything is bad! Frequent washing, especially during the winter causes the scalp to become excessively dry and leads to dandruff. Stick to washing the hair every 5 to 7 days with a mild cleansing(clarifying) shampoo which maintains the pH balance of the scalp.
Ahh! Why stick to one routine when you can switch things up? Experiment with products to see what works for your kid’s hair and what does not. Although, we recommend choosing products which are sulphate free, every hair texture responds differently to different things.
While you follow all the other tips, it is imperative to remember the importance of nutrition and a well-balanced diet. Regularly trimming those split ends promotes good hair growth. Even something as simple as using a wide toothed comb and avoiding excessive combing can do wonders for their hair.
