Curls are beautiful, but as well know, need to be taken care of in a specific way. Therefore, here’s a guide on how to manage your daughter’s curls. If these tips work for you, let us know! We love hearing from you.
How To Manage Your Daughter’s Curls
Get a Wet brush:
This is the only brush we’d recommend using on curls. This brush works amazing wonders on curly, tangly hair. It’s good for fine, thick, or coarse curls and won’t pull or snag. Similarly, invest in a good quality wide toothed comb for working through the more difficult of tangles. Remember to use conditioner or oil to create plenty of slip before tackling tangles, to start from the bottom, and work your way up. This will keep your detangling sesh tear free for all involved.
Use the right product:
Just because they’re kids doesn’t mean their curls won’t benefit from a good quality product. For example, a leave in conditioner can help make curls much easier to manage. Don’t be afraid to explore some kid friendly curl care lines to help determine which products will work best for your little one’s strands.
Wash curls less:
There are a lot of benefits to washing your curly kid’s curls less. You’ll save yourself a boatload of time, frustration, and money. Fortunately, kids’ curls don’t get dirty as quickly as adult’s so you can cut down on shampooing. This will allow curls to be naturally moisturized by their natural scalp oils, as well as prevent damage from washing. So really, it’s a win-win.
Sometimes it can be difficult to get your little one’s strands to take form. This can be because their strands are very fine, or overly dry. In order to help your little one’s curls take shape, you can section out strands and individually work through each curl by twisting it. Allow the curls to air dry and you’ll have naturally coiled curls.
