4 Natural Hair Tips for Kids

When your mother would comb your natural hair, was it a horrible experience for you? Do you find yourself having that same problem when combing your child's hair. Is she flinching and crying because it just hurts to get the hair detangled? There are solutions for those type of problems.

Hair Growing Tips

1.  Hair Regimen

Do you have a regular hair regimen for your daughter's hair? According to naturalhairrules.com a hair regimen should include cleansing, conditioning, and caring. Niki Scott further adds that although she currently cleanses her children's hair every 4-6 weeks, when they were younger she did it every week, followed by a leave-in conditioner. I really like the idea about a leave-in conditioner. In fact, I currently use the leave-in conditioners, it is just so much nicer than having to rinse it back out.

2.  Hair Growth

Francesca Warren at blackandmarriedwithkids.com talks about using Aloe Vera Juice in your hair routing for your child by mixing a cap full in your daily conditioning spray. She further adds that it is a natural hair detangler and conditioner. I am not surprised, because Aloe Vera has a lot of properties and can be used for a variety of things, so why not on the hair?

3. Moisturizing

Adding a bit of extra virgin olive oil or jojoba oil to shampoos and conditioners is good for dry hair. There is further suggestion of coconut oil, argon oil, and Shea butter to help lubricate children's hair before styling. I also, really like the smell that the coconut and argon oil leaves on the hair. It is very pleasant.

4. Detangling

Detangling is so important with kids natural hair. I remember when my mother and grandmother would comb my hair. My hair was so kinky. I would cry during the combing because it hurt so bad. I dreaded having my hair combed. Children do not have to worry about that now, because there are many detangling methods available.  Nicole at blackgirllonghair.com, suggests using hair conditioner on the hair allowing it to soak and soften up the hair. In addition, she suggests creating small sections and working at them with a comb to loosen up the matted hair and tangles.

I hope some of these tips help with your kids hair problems.
