Encouraging Your Teen To Try Natural Hairstyles

Encouraging Your Teen To Try Natural Hairstyles
Happy Friday all! I hope you've had a good week and are looking forward to the weekend ahead! As you may be able to relate, when your child is young, you are most likely to be the sole hair caretaker for their hair. But as they grow older, especially during their teenage years, they can become more experimental. Do you find that your teen daughter keeps straightening her hair? Well, in this post, I
suggest a few tips to help encourage your teenager to try more natural hairstyles.

The Journey

As a parent myself, I have been the natural hair caretaker for my 14-year-old's hair. And I have seen her hair flourish throughout this time.
The experimentalism stage usually kicks in around teenage years. And if they have afro/ curly hair texture and want to achieve the straight look, the dreaded GHD type flat iron/straighteners are usually the tool used for this. 

Lack of Knowledge

Unfortunately, most children using straighteners won't be using heat-protective spray. They tend to be more focused on the desired look. This means they are literally FRYING their hair. If they do choose to do this, hopefully, you can convince them to do it with less frequency, make sure they are at least using hair protectant spray prior to using straighteners - or any kind of heat! Hopefully, you can persuade them to straighten their hair, less through...

Tutorials 

Watching a few YouTubers who have tutorials of hairstyles, such as simple twist-outs. You could even take her to a hair salon and ask the hairdresser to show her a few creative styles. You could also check out our kids protective hairstyles post for some inspiration.
My daughter has started her own YouTube channel where she shares simple advice for pre-teens and teens on how to maintain their natural hair. We also share tips on our Root2Tip hair channel 
Sometimes when you show a strong-headed teen that their peers are embracing the natural texture of their hair, without damaging it, it’s all the motivation needed.
I hope these tips prove useful for helping to encourage your teen to embrace more styles with their natural texture.
 
Wishing you a wonderful evening and keep tuned in to the blog for a special offer this weekend!

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.
