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!

Amazing product smells great light and not too greasy would definitely use again 😁👍

Review

Products arrived in a timely fashion and well packaged.
The actual product itself is great - my son is mixed heritage with very coarse coils. The honey rain juice detangler and heavens hair milk are both light and not sticky and moistures my sons hair with no excess residue.
The packaging of the products isn’t great - the detangler bottle broke when trying to open it and I had to tip the product into a spray bottle to use it and prevent spillage.
The heavenly milk bottle was only filled up three quarters of the way - product had not been filled to the top which is a real shame. I like to support small independent businesses but feel as customers we should be supported by the business to do that. Maybe I was just unlucky with my order and it wouldn’t stop me ordering again 😁.
I am unable to review the shampoo and conditioner as we haven’t tried them yet. Shampoo does smell amazing on first sniff!

Fir some reason I can’t edit the stars - I would rate this as 3-4 due to packaging issues.

Product quality

Second time ordering from here and I have noticed the packaging has changed with the hair milk. Well mine came with a flat top lid that you press on one side to open. Prior to that I noticed that the milk is a much more runny consistency than before which I am not not pleased with. Also the rain juice when sprayed in my daughters hair. It makes her hair very soapy and bubbly which I cannot understand and also not very happy with. The oil I need to give more time. But based on my experience Im not keen on ordering in a rush...

best de-tangler

Is hands down the best de-tangler we have used for our daughter.

Amazing

Just started using this in in my daughters hair and it is amazing. It’s not heavy very light and keeps the hair smelling great. Her scalp is not dry. Works wonders I will be buying again.
