Hair Tips For Kids In Lockdown: Top 7

Hair Tips For Kids In Lockdown: Top 7

I hope you are all continuing to keep well during the lockdown. Slowly things are starting to lift, but we still have a way to go before things go completely back to normal. This week we have some hair tips for kids.

We have launched a Whatsapp group where we will be sharing hair tips to help you on your natural hair journey. You can join here: 

We will also be holding a live zoom session on 31st May for a moisturising hair routine. Stay tuned for the link on that!

Today we have some tips to share to help you moisturise your kids curly/ coily hair textures in lockdown. Moisture is key as the weather is getting much warmer as we approach the summer season.

Here are some tips on how to maintain moisture in your child's hair during this time: 

1. Co-wash Hair Tips For Kids

Cowash Hair Tips For Kids

After shampooing, it's important to add moisture back into your child's tresses by using a conditioner. You can also use a conditioner to co-wash without shampoo mid-week to give that extra hydration for your child's hair. Our Curly kids Citrus-Sky Cooler2Cowash is designed to do this.

2. Honey Rain Juice

Honey Rain Juice Hair Tips For Kids

On days apart from wash days, you can start off by detangling your child's hair with our Honey Rain Hair Juice Curly Hair Detangler. When using this, first detangle with your hands when spraying all over the hair. Avoid using combs where possible to make for a gentler experience when moisturising your child's hair. When you need to use a comb, make sure to detangle from the hair ends upwards to the roots to avoid tugging and breakage.

3. Sectioning Hair Tips For Kids

Sectioning Hair Tips For Kids

After applying the honey rain juice one time, then proceed to section your child's hair. Sectioning makes the moisturising routine gentler. Rushing to moisturise in one go can lead to breakage. Split the hair in half and section the top half into a further two sections. Then apply the Honey Rain Juice individually to these sections as you go along in these sections. This helps to stretch out your child's tresses.

4. Heaven's Hair Milk

Heaven's Hair Milk Hair Tips For Kids

Our Heaven's Hair Milk is a miracle cream! It helps to nourish your hair strands and gives the hair an extra added sheen. Apply it once you have sprayed and detangled the hair.

5. Hair Butter

Next, to seal in all the moisture you have applied to the hair, using a hair butter helps. If your child has particular thick hair, more towards type 4, our Natural Hair Butter is perfect for this. However, we also have our Vanilla-Sun Twurly Hair Butter, specifically designed to help seal moisture for hair in the heat. 

6. Twisting Hair Tips For Kids

Once you have moisturised the sections, then twist the hair to lock in the moisture even more because the hair is compressed, so all the moisture stays into those strands. You can even leave it in these twists for a week, and the hair should still maintain this moisture. This is the secret to growing longer hair on your child!

7. Styling Hair Tips For Kids

Banding is a style I would really recommend and have been using on my daughter's hair for such a young age. It's helped to help her hair grow to waist length at age 5!

I've found banding to be a great protective hairstyle that isn't too harsh on your child's hair. Banding allows your hair to have some space and isn't too under pressure through tight styling. I believe in the Triple S Method: Soft Scalp Styling. The gentler the better!

 I hope you find these hair tips for kids in lockdown useful.

Great for my scalp

Love this oil, not heavy, and doesn't leave any residue, keeps my scalp moisturised and flake free, also helped with my eczema.

Been using it since August of last year, I like to wait till I get to use a product properly before I write any review.

Great buy.

Great product!!

Love this! Great detangle spray.

Nice product

My girls and I have all different hair types, I love the moisture it gives us all. The only down side is my kids are reluctant to use as they don't like how it smells.

Happy Customer

Bought this product for my 8mth old. Was on a search for something that agrees with her sensitive scalp,and already thick hair.I am loving it 😍 will definitely be buying again 😁

My scalp tingled with delight!

From the second I put this on my hair it felt amazing, my scalp came alive and I could really feel the product working on my scalp, even after rinsing it out. The fragrance is perfect and the foam level is really good, I was quite surprised by how little I needed to achieve a lot of foam. My hair (Type 4c) looks and feels great, no breakage, feels soft and is glossy. I normally dread washing with shampoo as my hair has to "recover" from being stripped of its oils but not today, I felt like something was added for a change. I followed the shampoo, with the Detangling leave-in conditioner but to be honest I could have got away without it as it was so conditioned by the shampoo alone. No tugging, no breakage, it was a dream. Excellent product 11 out of 10!
