Teach Your Child To Love Their Hair!

Black family

Haircare is a lifelong learning lesson. Therefore, as a parent, it's important to make sure your kid learns to love and embrace their hair as early as possible. Here are some tips on how to make haircare fun for your kids! 

Peckham palms atrium

  1. Attend Natural Hair Events- Increasingly there are more events celebrating natural hair. This Sunday 15th September, Peckham Palms will be celebrating World Afro Day! There will be workshops, catwalks and all things Afro there! A great opportunity for your child to see and meet many who look like them and embracing their natural tresses. As cliche as it may sound, representation matters!

2. Watch YouTube Tutorials with them - Show them that afro/curly hair textures are so versatile and there's a range of styles they can do! We have a few on our channel, and YouTube is pretty good at recommending videos based on similar topics. There's been a viral phenomenon recently of black father's doing their daughter's hair- firmly breaking the stereotype! (Check out the clip at the bottom of this post).

3. Positive Affirmations - Speak Positive Affirmations over them, letting them know their hair is their crown. Even if the mainstream society standard of beauty is euro-centric, afro/curly hair types are just as beautiful as any other hair type. Remind them of the uniqueness of their individual hair texture. 

4. Role model- Set an example yourself by caring for your own hair. From setting a routine and caring for your own hair, it will become normal for your child to see and can encourage them to put it into practice and style and care for their own hair as they grow older. Haircare can be a great way to bond and share tips, as your child grows and discovers new things for themselves.

Here's a video of some father's learning to do their daughter's hair:

 

Stay blessed!

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.
