Encouraging Your Teen To Try Natural Hairstyles

Encouraging Your Teen To Try Natural Hairstyles
Happy Friday all! I hope you've had a good week and are looking forward to the weekend ahead! As you may be able to relate, when your child is young, you are most likely to be the sole hair caretaker for their hair. But as they grow older, especially during their teenage years, they can become more experimental. Do you find that your teen daughter keeps straightening her hair? Well, in this post, I
suggest a few tips to help encourage your teenager to try more natural hairstyles.

The Journey

As a parent myself, I have been the natural hair caretaker for my 14-year-old's hair. And I have seen her hair flourish throughout this time.
The experimentalism stage usually kicks in around teenage years. And if they have afro/ curly hair texture and want to achieve the straight look, the dreaded GHD type flat iron/straighteners are usually the tool used for this. 

Lack of Knowledge

Unfortunately, most children using straighteners won't be using heat-protective spray. They tend to be more focused on the desired look. This means they are literally FRYING their hair. If they do choose to do this, hopefully, you can convince them to do it with less frequency, make sure they are at least using hair protectant spray prior to using straighteners - or any kind of heat! Hopefully, you can persuade them to straighten their hair, less through...

Tutorials 

Watching a few YouTubers who have tutorials of hairstyles, such as simple twist-outs. You could even take her to a hair salon and ask the hairdresser to show her a few creative styles. You could also check out our kids protective hairstyles post for some inspiration.
My daughter has started her own YouTube channel where she shares simple advice for pre-teens and teens on how to maintain their natural hair. We also share tips on our Root2Tip hair channel 
Sometimes when you show a strong-headed teen that their peers are embracing the natural texture of their hair, without damaging it, it’s all the motivation needed.
I hope these tips prove useful for helping to encourage your teen to embrace more styles with their natural texture.
 
Wishing you a wonderful evening and keep tuned in to the blog for a special offer this weekend!

It’s okay

The product all are unique on their own. However, they did not work well for my hair, the oil products left my hair feeling very greasy and the leave in conditioner left my hair feeling very mucky. I’m sure these products are meant for someone else, but not me. I will not be purchasing again.

Great moisturiser!

Can’t recommend this milk enough, it works a treat. Since having a baby I’ve had really dry hair/scalp and this works perfectly. Love that it’s natural stuff. I use the children’s version on my son too. Really recommend!

Wonderful products ❤️❤️👌🏾👌🏾

This product is essential for detangling my daughters curly hair. Would highly recommend it.

Great

This is super... as with most things it doesn’t perform miracles... You have to be committed and do it properly and have some long term investment in this product for it to truely work... take pictures and monitor your progress.. it’s quite and easy and the results so far have been great ... My edges have become stronger and fuller over the last 12 months :)
