My Toddler’s Natural Hair Care


My daughter Kimani Lee gets her hair washed and styled every Sunday. Typically a style will last the entire week. I noticed that her hair texture is slowly transitioning to a tighter curl pattern. Therefore, I’m introducing new hair care products into our routine.

oilsIn the past, I’ve been able to wash and go, only using water in a spray bottle and a soft bristle brush to do her hair. But now after washing, I add a little argan and coconut oil to the palms of my hands, and then rub it gently into her kinky curly hair. The oil not only provides an extra bit of shine but promotes soft and strong hair. After applying the oil to her damp hair, I continue with styling as usual.

(Note: Research the benefits of argan and coconut oil. There are a variety of uses for both natural products.)


Extra Tip. If your child is like mine and doesn’t sleep while getting their hair done, I would suggest introducing a distraction. For example, my daughter likes to eat snacks and watch Sesame Street, while getting her hair styled for the week. I won’t say this works 100% of the time, but there’s definitely an improvement in her behavior from times past.

What works for you? I would like to know.

Thanks for reading. Please share with your friends and family.

I have discontinued the use of the argan oil pictured above and we have been using “Cantu Care for Kids Conditioning Detangler Spray”. This spray contains coconut oil as well. I highly recommend it, especially if you need something to assist with combing through the kinks.
