Hairstyles that help hair grow long and strong are ones that don’t require a lot of fuss. Styles that require you to manipulate or fix daily are big no-nos. The general rule should be set it and forget it.

Protective styles are great if you want to keep their strands protected because they last for weeks and don’t require much maintenance. It is recommended, however, that you refresh the style by spraying the hair with a moisturizing hair mist, applying an oil like olive oil or jojoba oil, and then applying a creamy whip or hair butter. There are some great examples of protective styles that promote hair growth in our guide!

We have some really simple moisturizing sprays and butters in our DIY Recipe Book. A lot of the recipes have ingredients that you probably already have in your kitchen cabinet!


When should you trim your child’s natural hair?

If you follow the above steps and keep your child’s hair in protective styles, you should only need to trim your child’s hair every 5-6 months.

However, if you notice a lot of split ends, knots and hear snapping of hair strands when detangling, then you should consider trimming the hair now.

How do you keep your child’s natural hair moisturized?

Keeping it simple with moisture is key. The best way to moisturize hair is with water. Good ole H20! Unfortunately, water can evaporate or absorb quickly into the hair strand leaving it dry again. That’s why when moisturizing hair, it’s best to start by saturating it heavily with water, then applying oil (olive, jojoba, castor, or almond) and finally sealing with a butter like shea, mango or cocoa butter.

This process of layering products is called the L.O.C. Method.


How do you stop your child’s natural hair from damage and breakage?

Keeping your child’s natural hair healthy and preventing breakage isn’t rocket science. One thing you must ALWAYS do is stay consistent! Develop a weekly routine that consists of frequent moisturizing, low manipulation, protective styles, nightly protection, and shampooing product build-up and dirt from the scalp and strands.
