Things To Avoid In Your Child's Hair Routine

Things To Avoid In Your Child's Hair Routine

Happy Sunday! I hope you are having a restful weekend. Today's blog is about things you should avoid doing in your child's hair care routine.

Please continue to bear with us as we refill stock. Thank you for your patience. 

1. Don't Use Rubber Bands - Using rubber bands to keep the hair ends in place has long been in practice in black hair routines. However, this is not advised, as when you remove them, they can cling and pull out your child’s hair. As mentioned in our blog last week, snagless hairbands are the type of hairbands we would recommend that you use in tying hair.

2. Don't Use Extensive Products - Avoid using an excessive amount of products on your child's hair and try to stick to natural products. Less is more. Your child's scalp is sensitive and still developing, so harsh products could cause long term damage. Your child's true hair texture may not reveal itself until they are at least eight years old. 

3. Don't Detangle Harshly - If your child's tender scalp is treated harshly when they are young, this could lead to long term hair loss. Use water to soften their hair throughout the detangling process and try to finger detangle before using a wide-tooth comb or tangle teezer.

4. Don't Relax - This is an obvious thing to avoid and probably the worst thing you could ever do to your child's hair. The chemicals in relaxers are extremely harsh and should not touch your child's hair in any way, shape or form. 

5. Don't Use Too Much Heat – Using heat often on your child’s hair could cause heat damage. So, try to air dry more than blow dry and even in their teens years, try to prevent them from straightening their hair often.

Very good shampoo

Good product for my son

It helps curl his hair easily and it feel very soft and rich

I really like this butte, It leaves my hair really soft and defines my curls like no other butter I’ve tries before.
Also a little goes a long way!

Good shampoo. Doesn’t leave my hair dry and has a nice scent too

Great product

Great product and very good service . The texture was just the right blend and very lovely scent.
