Baby Going Natural HEN MOM Regimen

Creating A Simple Natural Hair Regimen for your Child

IMG_0854

So we all have a regimen for our own hair, but what about a regimen for your child?

I am a new mom and adjusting to caring for my own hair plus my child’s hair has been sort of a struggle. I just got my own regimen down (lol) and now I have to create a regimen for my child.  I’m here to tell you that does not have to be complicated. Here are some tips that helped me create a regimen for my child.

1.Choose a Shampoo

I know there are TONS to choose from! You go to target and it just overwhelming right? I wash Riley’s hair once a week.

Find a moisturizing shampoo. I started off using Johnsons and Johnsons ( a big no no ) It was very drying on her hair. I then moved on to Shea Moisture baby. I liked Shea Moisture baby, but I felt she needed more. I then began to use CoCo Curls. Some other great brands I have researched include:

  • Carol’s Daughter CD4Kids Shampoo
  • Mixed chicks Kids shampoo
  • Curls Curly Q’s Curlie Cutie Cleansing Cream

2. Conditioning/ Detangling

This step is a must, and also sometimes painful for the child. I know my daughter screams at the top of her lungs when I try and detangle her hair. But it must be done. So, to make the process easier I apply conditioner ( I use the coco curls line) and use a wide tooth comb. I comb through her hair while the conditioner is still in her hair so that I have that slip. I then rinse out the conditioner and move on to styling. Any good cheapie conditioner does the trick for detangling.

3. Styling

I ALWAYS make sure to moisturize my daughters hair. Before styling I make sure to seal the moisture in. To do this I use the Moisturizing Styling Crème by Coco Curls. I twist her hair in chunky twists on wash day and then add a little oil to seal. I usually leave them in for a day and then take them out and we fro’ it out :).  Some other great creams include:

  • Shea Moisture Kids Curling Buttercream
  • Cantu Kids Curling Cream

You also need to make sure that you are adding moisture to your child’s hair in-between wash days. Water works well, or a little oil.

Lastly, we need to protect the hair. Now that my daughter is a little older, I try and put a scarf on her head. (ummm yeah, Y’all know it don’t stay on!) Or a good old fashioned bonnet will do the trick!

I just want you to know that every process takes trial and error. I tried a few products that didn’t work for her hair, a few that did. Its a process just like the one you went through. I just want to make sure that I am taking care of her hair and that I keep it healthy.

 

Hope this helps! xoxo
