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!

LOVE LOVE LOVE!

I first came across this product in a glossy box a few years back and fell in love with it, so I had to come and get the full size. It makes my hair feel soooo soft, completely moistures it and is very easy to use. The spray nozzle is great and distributes a lot of product. Definitely a staple for my hair.

Amazing Product

I love it! Like to use it all over my hair before I start my LOC method. Keeps my hair moistured and protected. I like the consistency and it works well with other products.

Game changer

This product has been a game changer in my LO’s hair so far . I really do hope it has come to stay for us cause I’m really blown away by the results in just few days of use .. Thank you for an awesome product

My scalp loves it

I have sensitive scalp areas on my head. But had no issues using the product.
