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!

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!
