Taking care of african textured hair in kids

To take care of african textured hair in kids it can be tough...because the texture is very tough.Always make sure you apply oil to the hair to avcoid breakage when combing.If the texture is tough and full a texturizer from Dark and Lovely or any uther trausted brand can also help.Back here in nigeria we make sure of black threads to make the texture easier to manage.Or for babies we use colorful bands to gently tie the hair from the roots to make it more manageable.

Using texturisers or any other type of kids hair is a no no for me. Shea butter is a very good hair softener for natural african hair. Also try using conditioner after shampooing makes the hair easy to detangle and comb. There is a lot of information available online if you just goodgle 'black children hair care.

Btw, this is a nice blog.


I don't believe in texturizers for my daughter's hair. She's 5 and natural. But to each their own.

I simply work to maintain a healthy balance between moisture and protein for her hair ad so far, its been working.

Anyway, nice blog. Check out my mommy blog IT WAS SO MUCH EASIER WHEN I ONLY HAD ONE... and my politics/social commentary blog, NIGERIAN CURIOSITY.

Hope to see you around.
