Maintaining Moisture for your Child's Protective Hairstyles

Maintaining Moisture for your Child's Protective Hairstyles

We are always on a journey to keep our hair healthy, right? And what better way to start teaching these healthy habits than from a young age? Sometimes, keeping your child’s protective hairstyles moisturised and neat can seem like a challenge. So, I've gathered some tips to help you maintain moisture for protective hairstyles:

Child with cornrowed and twisted hairstyle

 

Cornrows and twists with natural hair can be a great natural protective hairstyle. You can braid or flat-twist in a range of patterns. Our grow-it-long scalp serum will help delay dandruff, as it is formulated especially for a dry itchy scalp. The nozzle head makes it easy for you to guide in between braids.

girl with braided extensions

 

Braided extensions are a popular style across all ages in the black hair community. Once your child has reached a suitable age where extensions aren’t too harsh against their hair, they may want to try this style.

Wearing a bonnet or having a silk or satin pillow when you sleep, or even nap, is also a key feature of maintaining moisture in your hair. Resting your hair directly on cotton material like a pillow causes friction against afro hair. This is why smoother material such as silk helps to keep in the moisture, rather than taking it away from your hair. Plus, it's great against your skin too!

Whichever protective hairstyle you choose as a style, our honey rain juice will helpfully assist you when styling the hair. It detangles and adds moisture to your child’s tresses. We would also recommend using it once the style is completed and throughout the time your child has it installed. It is made to top up moisture without adding significant build-up like other denser products.

Check out this tutorial of how to moisturise your protective hairstyles with our honey rain juice:

I hope these tips help maintain your kid's protective hairstyles!

Love love love it!!!

I have been looking for the right products for my daughter’s hair. I’m not very familiar with textured curly hair and all my education of how to care for it was from YouTube tutorials and advices from other women. So I’m so happy to find this oil. I simply follow what’s on the tin and it makes wonders! Definitely buying again!

"Absolutely amazing!"

I bought this product for my daughters. As predicted my phone was jammed with inbound voice notes praising not just the quality of the packaging (it's very eco friendly), but also the award winning hair care product, Quench anti breakage creme. I had been trying to persuade her to try the product for sometime but she claimed her own homemade natural products will suffice. Hear her now: "Dad! Dad! ...This product is the business!! My hair loves these products!". I'm waiting for the video she's making... coming soon!
Thanks a million to Root2tip haircare products.

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...
