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!

  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!

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.
