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:
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.
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.
