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.

Check out this tutorial of how to moisturise your protective hairstyles with our honey rain juice:

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

Great product

Have been using these products for a little while now and have to say I am very happy with how my hair looks and feels after using them. My hair is in the transition stage and these products are perfect for both textures that I have right now. Would recommend for natural or chemically treated hair lovely.

Very moisturising shampoo

I'm a hairdresser and use the shampp and conditioner all the time well recommended. I. Would never use another product

Twist and Curls Hair Pudding

I wasn't too sure after receiving the pudding. Thought it might be too oily for my hair. But after using with my liquid this moisturised my hair very well. My hair gets dry very quickly and this product kept my strands soft longer than many other products I have used.

Sulphate Free Shampoo and Triple Protein Masque

This is my second bottle of Sulphate Free Shampoo and its a very good product. Shampoo doesnt need much product to foam up. I like the clean smell of the product not too much or no scent, just right. Hair feels thoroughly clean once rinsed. Thumbs up!

From the the moment i squeezed the Triple Protein Masque product into my hand to put in my hair i could tell the consistency was just right for my high porosity hair. So this is now what i will be using for my much needed protein treatment for the future. Another good product.

Fantastic product

I use this on my hair as well as my daughters her. It works wonders and I now can’t live without it!
It moisturises and detangles hair so well. I use it with my braids and I’ve noticed my hair isn’t dry when I take it out. I also use it on my daughters hair daily.
