Maintaining Moisture for your Child's Protective Hairstyles

Maintaining Moisture for your Child's Protective Hairstyles

We are always on a journey to keep our hair healthy, right? And what better way to start teaching these healthy habits than from a young age? Sometimes, keeping your child’s protective hairstyles moisturised and neat can seem like a challenge. So, I've gathered some tips to help you maintain moisture for protective hairstyles:

Child with cornrowed and twisted hairstyle

 

Cornrows and twists with natural hair can be a great natural protective hairstyle. You can braid or flat-twist in a range of patterns. Our grow-it-long scalp serum will help delay dandruff, as it is formulated especially for a dry itchy scalp. The nozzle head makes it easy for you to guide in between braids.

girl with braided extensions

 

Braided extensions are a popular style across all ages in the black hair community. Once your child has reached a suitable age where extensions aren’t too harsh against their hair, they may want to try this style.

Wearing a bonnet or having a silk or satin pillow when you sleep, or even nap, is also a key feature of maintaining moisture in your hair. Resting your hair directly on cotton material like a pillow causes friction against afro hair. This is why smoother material such as silk helps to keep in the moisture, rather than taking it away from your hair. Plus, it's great against your skin too!

Whichever protective hairstyle you choose as a style, our honey rain juice will helpfully assist you when styling the hair. It detangles and adds moisture to your child’s tresses. We would also recommend using it once the style is completed and throughout the time your child has it installed. It is made to top up moisture without adding significant build-up like other denser products.

I hope these tips help maintain your kid's protective hairstyles!

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!

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 :)

Works a treat

I have been using the Kinki Coili Kurli range on my daughter, now daughter's hair for a good while now. I was stuck as nothing seemed to keep my girls hair moist. I also could not find anything that was not too heavy or harsh for her hair. Then I came across the Kinki range and fell in love. Her curls were defined, I could finger comb her hair and her hair was healthy and no longer dry. Only fair to mention it being natural being a huge benefit, with no hidden ingredients.
My fav product has always been the twirly butter for my eldest girl, whilst the milk works a treat on my youngest.
If products are used as advised, you can definitely see great results. Amazing range 😊
