Taking Care Of Your Curly Kid's Hair
First things first:
If your curly kid has tangles or snarls in their strands, this can make taking care of curls difficult. Therefore, you need to start by managing tangles. There are a few things you can do to help minimize knots.
Leave in conditioner/detangler:
Invest in a great leave in conditioner or detangling spray and use it liberally. Your little one's curls are likely fine in texture, and therefore can be easier to tangle or dry out. In the morning, make sure to hydrate your curls using a leave in conditioner. Before you begin the detangling process, apply a lot of detangler throughout your strands.
Another great time to detangle is right after you've cleansed your little one's strands. Following shampooing, you can use a thick conditioner to coat your little one's strands, and then work through each knot individually. The conditioner will create slip, and this will minimize the amount of pulling, tearing, or knots.
As hard as it can be to get those baby curls cut, make sure you're getting your little one in for regular trims with your hair stylist. This will keep curls from becoming excessively dry, tangled, or splitting.
There are a lot of amazing curl care products for kids out there, and having an understanding of which works best for your little one will help make life easier. When looking for the products, make sure you're considering your little one's curl type, as well as paying close attention to the ingredients list. Make sure to avoid any ingredients that are artificial or damaging to curls. Ingredients such as sulfates, artificial fragrances, and parabens are all damaging to your little one's curls.
