Things To Avoid In Your Child's Hair Routine

Things To Avoid In Your Child's Hair Routine

Happy Sunday! I hope you are having a restful weekend. Today's blog is about things you should avoid doing in your child's hair care routine.

Please continue to bear with us as we refill stock. Thank you for your patience. 

1. Don't Use Rubber Bands - Using rubber bands to keep the hair ends in place has long been in practice in black hair routines. However, this is not advised, as when you remove them, they can cling and pull out your child’s hair. As mentioned in our blog last week, snagless hairbands are the type of hairbands we would recommend that you use in tying hair.

2. Don't Use Extensive Products - Avoid using an excessive amount of products on your child's hair and try to stick to natural products. Less is more. Your child's scalp is sensitive and still developing, so harsh products could cause long term damage. Your child's true hair texture may not reveal itself until they are at least eight years old. 

3. Don't Detangle Harshly - If your child's tender scalp is treated harshly when they are young, this could lead to long term hair loss. Use water to soften their hair throughout the detangling process and try to finger detangle before using a wide-tooth comb or tangle teezer.

4. Don't Relax - This is an obvious thing to avoid and probably the worst thing you could ever do to your child's hair. The chemicals in relaxers are extremely harsh and should not touch your child's hair in any way, shape or form. 

5. Don't Use Too Much Heat – Using heat often on your child’s hair could cause heat damage. So, try to air dry more than blow dry and even in their teens years, try to prevent them from straightening their hair often.

Definitely repurchasing!

Extremely good product, moisturises very well and isn't dry the next day like some products. Also a little goes a very long way and so it is fairly priced. I can see and feel it working with my natural hair texture, cleared out over 20 products and replaced with this one. It has good hold so is good for styling aswell

Amazing!!

I am so impressed with this product it doesn't leave behind any build up of product residue in my child's hair like other products. It de-tangles very well, has a non toxic non overpowering scent and I love the fact that it's natural. I've ordered two bottles so far and disposed of the other products I was using. After educating myself about edc's in black hair products switching ti this this was a no brainer and I can actually visually see that the product works along with my child's hair which is lighter and not so greasy. The product was shipped so quickly after ordering and the customer service has been outstanding. Thank you so much for all your hard work producing this product that has been designed with black hair health in mind. I've been recommending this product to my friends

Best detangler I have found

Such an effective detangler that brings my daughters girls back to life. Lightweight and not sticky like other products I have tried

Amazing keeps my hair so hydrated and curls in place

This is the best spray leave in I've ever used. Sal kindly gifted me one to try and I've bought 2 more since. Even my sister bought one. It really works well in our hair. I have long tailbone length thick 4a 3c hair and this light weight product is amazing. Along with the quench cream. Perfect formula. I'd love to one day see Root2tip on the store shelves!

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.
