Protect Your Hair While You Sleep

Basic Regimen

Deciding on a healthy hair regimen for you child in the beginning can be down right scary! Healthy hair doesn’t just happen, it’s the result of proper care and maintenance. But what if you don’t know where to begin when it comes to a routine for your child’s tresses? Don’t worry; a hair regimen doesn’t need to be complex or super expensive, but you should set aside some time to really develop a proper routine to keep your child’s hair as healthy as possible.

Your little one’s basic hair care regimen should incorporate the following:

 

Shampoo

Shampooing your child’s hair and scalp is a must. Washing their hair once a week or once every two weeks is sufficient if their hair isn’t excessively dirty. Whether you use shampoo or prefer to do a co-wash, shampooing is just what your child’s hair needs to maintain ultimate hair health.

Some great natural hair shampoos for kids are:

  • SheaMoisture Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo
  • Bee Mine Moisturizing Shampoo
  • SheaMoisture Mango & Carrot Kids Extra-Nourishing Shampoo
  • Kinky Curly Come Clean Shampoo
  • Carol’s Daughter CD4Kids Shampoo
  • Mixed Chicks Kids Shampoo
  • Curlie Cutie Cleansing Cream – Sulfate Free Cleanser

 

Detangling

Detangling is the most difficult step in the regimen because it can cause a little bit of discomfort for your child. Gently removing tangles from your child’s hair helps you retain length and helps you dodge those nasty single-strand knots. Here’s how you should tackle those stubborn tangles:

After rinsing out the shampoo, apply a very generous amount of a cheap drug store conditioner on soaking wet hair. You can use your fingers or a tool such as a wide tooth comb or Tangle Teaser, to make certain their hair is tangle-free. Detangle the hair and rinse out the conditioner completely.

Some great conditioners to use for detangling your child’s hair are:

  • Cantu Shea Butter Shea Butter Moisturizing Rinse Out Conditioner
  • Tresemme Naturals Nourishing Moisture Conditioner
  • Aussie Moist Conditioner
  • VO5 Strawberries & Cream Conditioner
  • Herbal Essences Hello Hydration Conditioner
  • Garnier Fructis Haircare Hydra Recharge Fortifying Conditioner

 

Deep conditioning

Deep Conditioning can be used interchangeably with a regular conditioner. Some people choose to deep condition a few times a week, however, deep conditioning once or twice per month is acceptable as well. Try warming up the conditioner (not too hot though, you don’t want to burn their scalp) and applying it to the hair after it has been washed and conditioned. Let it sit for about 30 mins – 1 hour and rinse. You can also apply the conditioner to their hair and have them sit under a hooded dryer on medium heat for about 10 minutes.

Some great deep conditioners to use in your child’s hair regimen are:

  • Mixed Chicks Deep Conditioner
  • Camille Rose Naturals Algae Renew Deep Conditioning Mask
  • Eden Body Works Jojoba Monoi All Natural Deep Conditioner
  • Shea Moisture Deep Treatment Masque, Raw Shea Butter
  • Nubian Heritage Indian Hemp Tamanu Grow & Strengthen Treatment Masque
  • Cantu Shea Butter Deep Treatment Masque
  • Beautiful Textures Rapid Repair Deep Conditioner
  • Or, you can make your own!

 

Trimming

If you are starting to see a lot of damaged split ends, notice hair balls at the ends of the hair, or hear a lot of snapping or popping of hair strands during detangling, then it is time for a trim. Please do not confuse a trim with a hair cut. Trimming only removes about 1/2 to 3/4 of an inch of hair. Only trim the minimum amount needed to get rid of these damaged ends using shearing scissors or have a professional do it. Check out this hair trimming tutorial from Discovering Natural

 

Lock in moisture with The LOC Method

  • Leave-In Conditioner

    Applying a pH-balanced leave-in conditioner is important because it closes the cuticles of your child’s hair shaft. This ensures that all the nutrients and moisture that you added during washing and conditioning don’t escape. It also leaves your child’s hair super soft and alleviates breakage due to dry hair.Some great leave-in conditioners to use in your child’s hair regimen are:

    • Mixed Chicks Leave-in Conditioner
    • Miss Jessie’s Leave-In Condish
    • Cantu Shea Butter Leave In Conditioning Repair Cream
    • As I Am Leave-In Conditioner
    • Carol’s Daughter Black Vanilla Leave-In Conditioner
  • Oil

    Oil helps seal in moisture. Apply a thin layer of oil to your hair to help lock in the moisture. Common oils are coconut oil, extra virgin olive oil and Jamaican black castor oil.Some great oils to use in your child’s hair regimen are:

    • Tropic Isle Jamaican Black Castor Oil
    • Jamaican Mango And Lime Black Castor Oil Peppermint (This smells amazing too!
    • Spectrum Naturals Organic Coconut Oil (You can find this in Target in the baking section)
    • Darcy’s Botanicals Organic Coconut & Hibiscus Conditioning Oil
    • Curl Junkie Beauticurls Argan & Olive Oil Daily Hair Conditioner
    • Spectrum Naturals Organic Refined Coconut Oil
    • Sunny Isle Jamaican Black Castor Oil Extra Dark
  • Cream

    Apply a butter-based, creamy moisturizer to your hair to seal that moisture in. Shea butter is PERFECT for this step!Some great cremes to use in your child’s hair regimen are:

    • SheaMoisture Raw Shea Butter infused with Frankincense & Myrrh
    • Cantu Shea Butter Grow Strong Strengthening Treatment
    • Bee Mine Bee Hold Curly Butter
    • Organix Smooth Hydration Argan Oil & Shea Butter Curl Enhancing Yogurt
    • Camille Rose Naturals Curlaide Moisture Butter
    • Or, you can become a mixologist and try your hand at making your own!

You may find that adding products in the order of Liquid, Oil, Cream does not work. Try other variations of this method and you may be surprised at just how your child’s hair responds to this small change.

 

Protective Style

Any hairstyle that protects the ends of your hair from breaking and over exposure to harsh elements is considered a protective style. Cornrows, braids, twists and the like are invaluable at growing out your child’s hair. If you are styling hair into a high puff or ponytail, then be mindful of the tension and pulling that these styles put on their edges. Try to switch up the styles to give the edges of the hair a break.

 

Daily Moisture

Adding moisture to your child’s hair in between washing is important. Depending on how dry their hair is, moisturizing it only once per day or even 3-4 times a week is perfectly fine. Moisturizing can be as simple as spritzing their hair with some water and applying oil afterwards or using a store-bought moisturizer. Some parents have had a lot of success with putting 2 tbsps of a leave-in conditioner and 1 tablespoon of oil (coconut or black castor oil) in a spray bottle with 1 cup of filtered water and spraying that on the hair when needed.

Some great daily hair moisturizers to use in your child’s daily regimen are:

  • Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie
  • Jane Carter Nourish and Shine
  • CURLS Whipped Cream
  • Miss Jessies Baby Buttercreme
  • Africa’s Best Kid’s Organics Hair Nutrition

 

A Sample Regimen:

Sunday: Shampoo, condition, deep condition, LOC method, protective style

Monday: Moisturizer

Tuesday: Moisturizer

Wednesday: Moisturizer

Thursday: Co-wash, moisturize

Friday: Moisturize

Saturday: Moisturize

No regimen is complete without nightly protection! Make sure your little one either wears a satin bonnet to bed or sleeps on a satin pillowcase. This will keep their hair moisturized and also prevent breakage. You can find satin bonnets and pillowcases at The Natural Hair Shop(www.naturalhairshop.com).

Now, all of this knowledge does you no good if you aren’t consistent. With most parents, finding the time to do all of these steps is the main reason why hair doesn’t get the proper TLC that it needs. But, if you want your child’s hair to grow and be healthy, then you will have to MAKE time! Try setting up alerts on your phone to remind you that you need to deep condition their hair, or write them down in a day planner or online time management program. Most parents spend the weekend deep conditioning and protective styling so that there is enough time. Whatever you do, don’t give up! Your child, and their hair, will thank you for it.

    Hello,
    The conditioners u listed under the regimen, do you also recommend those conditioners for the age of 9 months which is the age that was stated on this website that a conditioner can be used ?

  3. Jessanelle

    August 9, 2014 at 1:16 pm

    Hello,
    The conditioners that are listed above, are they also good for 9 month old babies which is the age your website states is ok to start using a conditioner for a baby ?

    • Natural Hair Kids

      August 11, 2014 at 11:06 am

      I would wait until the baby is a bit older before using conditioner. A mild shampoo and a little oil is really all that is needed at that age.

    Hello,
    My baby is a month old I wash her hair every couple days with Shea moisture baby shampoo but her hair doesn’t stay moist any suggestions on a type of oil I can put on her hair being as though she is so young

    • Natural Hair Kids

      September 3, 2014 at 11:24 am

      Hi! Try adding a little bit of coconut or jojoba oil to her hair after you wash it. Also, make sure that you lay her down on a satin-backed baby blanket so the hair doesn’t rub and dry out.

    My daughter will be 1years old in a couple weeks. Her hair is coming out in some places and in even but growing in others. Her hair is also very dry so I use aveeno to help with moisture and can’t seem to find good shampoos and conditioners that don’t dry her hair out do you have any recommendations and hair oils and moisturizers that’s ok?

    • Natural Hair Kids

      September 5, 2014 at 12:03 pm

      SheaMoisture has a great line of shampoos and conditioners for kids. You should also use the loc method in her hair to help it retain moisture. Protecting her hair at night is equally important and she should either be laying on a satin pillowcase or satin backed baby blanket to keep her hair from rubbing on abrasive cotton. Try those tips out and see if they help. Keep us posted!

    My daughter is seven n she gets perms on monthly bases and her edges are breaking what do you recommend

    • Natural Hair Kids

      September 22, 2014 at 2:44 pm

      You might want to space out the time in between perms. If she gets a perm monthly then that can definitely wreck havoc on her edges. Also, minimized pulling the hair back into tight ponytails. Instead, let her rock a fro or loose twists.

      Her hair should also be protected at night with a satin bonnet or pillowcase.

      We offer a large selection of satin bonnets and pillowcases here: http://www.naturalhairshop.com.

    • Natural Hair Kids

      November 6, 2014 at 4:52 pm

      You might want to cut back on the frequency of her perms. Maybe have her get perms every 2-3 months. Processing her hair every month more than likely has a lot to do with her edges breaking. You also want to cut back on pulling the hair back into any hairstyle (i.e. ponytail) that will pull tightly on her hair and edges.

    Hi my daughter is 5 years old and she has natural 4c hair. She has really dry hair. I’m trying to find a regimen that works for her hair. What moisturiser would you recommend i use on her hair?

    Hello, my daughter is 13 years old and I take her every month to our local Dominican hair salon to get her hair texturized, trimmed(if needed), washed, and set. Her hair is up to her shoulders but it doesn’t seem to be growing any longer and is breaking. I’d like to start washing her hair at home now and only let the salon do her textures and trims. What are all the products u recommend for me to start doing this? Also, what do u think I should do? Thank you

    • Natural Hair Kids

      September 22, 2014 at 2:56 pm

      You might want to cut back on the texturizers. Monthly texturizers can definitely be the reason behind the hair breaking and falling out due to overprocessing. Try to extend the time in between texturizers to once ever couple of months instead of every month.

      The type of styles that your daughter is wearing can also play a part her hair breaking. She should not be wearing her hair pulled back into tight ponytails all of the time. She should consider wearing her hair in loose twists, or a protective style.

      She should also be protecting her hair at night by sleeping on a satin pillowcase or with a satin bonnet on her head. We offer quite a few options in our store: http://www.naturalhairshop.com

    My daughter is 14 months old I been using shea moisture baby shampoo and mixed chick’s leave in conditioner, is she old enough to switch to shea moisture kids and the raw shea moisture products in your regimen. What is good to use on her edges that will help them grow back, she is starting to go bald n spots on the side and front I believe from hairstyles I’ve done.

    Hello,
    I have a 9 month old and we live in NYwere the weather is on and off but heading for the cold season since it’s officially fall. His hair is dry on the back and a little of the sides. As of right now I wash his hair every two weeks with shea moisture then apply the l.o.c method . Daily I just apply water and an oil .What can I do or add to my regimen for the weather change that’s approaching? I guess what I’m asking I would a conditioner or deep conditioner twice a month help ? And if so can any of the ones u state for the kids above work for conditioners and or deep conditioners be used ? Also he has little lint balls on the back of his head that snap or crackle sometimes , does that mean he needs a trim?

      I currently use the LOC method for my soon to be two year old daughter. I wash, condition and loc weekly but during the week I will apply coconut oil to her hair. I believe it’s your choice. Either oil or cream product should be okay to use during the week.

    I just had my second child. And a week after bringing her home my oldest child’s hair fell completely out. .. she isn’t bald…but thinning to where I can see her scalp. So I changed from using sulfur 8 for kids to shea moisture products. I also made my own creme using natural shea butter virgin olive oil and coconut oil and vitamin e oil. I was wondering how long before I see results and anything else I could do to promote growth. I do already use a satin pillow and bonnet.

    I wash and condition my daughter’s hair every other week. She’s been wearing mini twists for a month now and she has a lot of new growth. The shampoo and conditioner I usually use is Alberto VO5 Moisture Milks in Strawberry because its her favorite. However, I’m switching to Suave Naturals just to change things up a bit. After washing with shampoo, I clarify with ACV because I use a lot of hair gel in her styles. I’ve also switched her leave in to Cantu Shea Butter leave in repair cream. In the winter I use Tropic Isle Living Jamaican Black castor oil and in the summer, I use EVOO. i don’t usually deep condition her hair because she doesn’t have the patience for it but I found a deep conditioner by Africa’s Best that can be left in for only three minutes. I’ve spent a lot of time and energy growing out my daughter’s hair and its doing really well and she’s proud of her curls and so am I!!!

    I recently did a ‘dusting’ to my 10.5 month old daughter. She had a full head of afro hair. The issue is that you could see through the top part of the afro. Her ends were thin and likely still baby hair because she was born with 3c hair and now it is looking more like a 4b. Anyway, I clipped of the thin area thinking that, as with adult hair, you clip the thin areas and it will grow healthier and stronger. Needlesstosay her hair is much thicker than it was when it was longer. Her father had a fit but he just wants her to have long hair. He has no idea if it is healthy or not. I just wanted to inquire if clipping her ends was the right thing to do. I’m a first time Mommy and have no idea on this. I just went natural myself so we are learning together.

    Hello my daughter is nine months, I have been using coconut and grapeseed oil in her hair from birth and now started to use shea butter with the Coconut oil and sometimes the grapeseed.. My question is, is she too young to use a leave in conditioner I noticed in one of your post you said conditioner is no good for that age, I also was using its a curl conditioner from CURLs in her hair, should I stop the conditioner or is it better to use a leave in

    Do u think putting braids with extensions is bad for a almost 3yr old hair

      That may be a little too early for extensions. Maybe try when she is around 5 or 6 years old. The pulling and tightness of extensions can really damage the hair. Especially at that age.

        This is so true. My 2year old daughter’s hair fell off after braiding with extensions, and now her hairline is bare.

    Hello, my daughter is 3 years old, her hair is very dry and seems to be on the coarse side. When I wash it it’s soft and all and afterwards it’s shrinks up and just doesn’t have any sheen. The ends of her hair are really bad. She has some straight strands of hair that are visible and I feel that is from blow drying her hair 2 or 3 times when she was 2. I blow dried it because her braids would come out better looking than if braided when damp. I don’t use the blow dryer on her hair anymore. I also can’t braid her hair as often as I would like because she gets hair bumps around the edges of her hair nor leaving it out in an afro is acceptable neither because her hair becomes very tangled or matted and fuzzy when she sleeps. I don’t put a satin bonnet on her head at night because she’ll take it off right away. I still can’t find the right hair products to use on her hair that will keep it moisturized. I tried the Shea moisture kids shampoo and conditioner and I’m not a fan on it. After reading this article I now have to implement a certain hair care regimen for her hair to become healthy. Any suggestions on hair products that don’t irritate their eyes? I’m not a product junkie so I don’t like to buy up a whole bunch of products to see what works, comes as a waste of money if it’s ineffective.

    Hello. My daughter is 14. Her her is very coarse and dry. It will grow a little then fall out again. I have taken her to a dermatologist for her scalp and there is no fungus. I can’t do anything to her hair because it is so coarse and I never experienced. What can I use for her dry scalp and promote hair growth? I want to relax it so it is easier to maintain but not sure. Please help! as I think I have tried everything and bought up the entire beauty supply.

    My daughter is 5yrs old and i have tried so many products on her hair but to me none same to be growing her hair. some actually breaks her hair. i recently begun using the Jamican castor oil shampoo and conditioner with an olive oil grease and it seems to me that her hair is breaking so am wondering whether it is too strong for her. i also have a olive oil deep condtioning that can be used as a stream, or a daily moisterizer but am still wondering whether its to strong. oh her hair dries up quickly but when wet its curly and the back seems not be growing at all for its way shorter that the rest of her hair.
    I await a quick response.

    Thank you

    Hi I have a 4 year old daughter and over the past year I have used like 4 texturizers on her hair because it was difficult to deal with. I did not let it sit on her hair over 5 min and I do not reapply on hair that has already been processed. I have noticed that even though her hair is growing it is growing very slow and her edges will not catch up with the rest of her hair. I use cantu products or new beginnings, and Liv grease. I also have a 1 year old daughter she is natural not planning on using a texturizer on her hair but her edges are not catching up with the rest of her hair either. What can I do to help them both?

    Hi. Is there a braid style that is a better protective style than others? I have an almost four year old who has 4B hair. We live in Las Vegas which is extremely dry. I keep her hair braided for 2 weeks then rest in puffs for a week. Is that okay to do? Also, what should my stylist put in her hair prior to braiding it?

    Thank you so much!
