Teacher and mother of two asked for new hair product recommendations for her three-year-old daughter.
I'm looking for new hair products for my daughter. I normally use Curly kids. I started using the shampoo and conditioner when I first started conditioning her hair then they changed the packaging and I found the product changed. But their lotion I kept using as that was ok.
Her hair is naturally curly but it’s just getting thicker and more curly as she’s getting older and that lotion just isn’t giving her what it needs. She needs more moisture but I wouldn’t be able to put oil or anything like our hair.
After asking a few questions about leave-in conditioner and any allergies to oil, we discovered that mom doesn’t actually use a leave-in conditioner in her daughter’s hair and she’s not allergic to oil. Mom said oil would just be too greasy for her daughter’s hair. However, her baby girl’s hair gets slightly dry now, whereas it didn’t before, more so with the weather (England was experiencing a heatwave at the time of writing).
As her hair gets thicker it will need more moisture. So you definitely want to be using a conditioner. Especially with the heat. Also, try a balm if you don’t want to use oil.
If you’re looking for an alternative shampoo and conditioner and something to hydrate baby girl’s hair, I’d recommend the Bourn Beautiful Naturals Wash Day Essentials Kit. Included is the Hair Too Balm which is like grease but a lot lighter and nourishing.
This 4-piece box provides all the essentials for an easy-peasy wash day. Two of the items can be used to re-moisturise and protect beyond wash day, as well:
Moisture Silk Sulfate-Free Shampoo (250ml)
This is a creamy shampoo, which is rich in lather and helps to detangle while it cleanses. It effectively removes dirt, product buildup without stripping the hair of its moisture. In fact, it helps to put that back in with Vitamin B-5 and silk amino acids. To use this product all you need to do is put shampoo onto the palm of your hand and massage the shampoo into the scalps with your fingerprints. Then, rinse all of the products out of hair with water and enjoy the incredible soft hair and feel like on cloud nine.
Avocado Smoothie Hair Conditioner (250ml)
This is a rinse-out creamy concoction conditioner designed to work like a green smoothie made for the hair. It has a great slip and leaves coils replenished and smooth. It is coconut oil-free and instead uses hempseed oil, which is known to help itchy scalps. To use this product you apply the conditioner on the hair. Then, you rinse thoroughly to get rid of any remaining substances left. The reviewers proudly state, ‘The avocado conditioner has a lovely creamy texture’.
Leave Me Be Leave-In Conditioner (250ml)
This is a silicone-free and glycerine-free leave-in conditioner. This provides an excellent protective base for any styling product. It stands on its own as well, sealing the hair cuticle with aloe vera juice and a touch of oat protein. It is also lightweight enough to be used as a daily moisturiser with a sealant. This products also bring the opportunity directly to you to feel like over the moon with strong, healthy and glowing hair. Hair that is easy to style as well! The Leave Me Be Leave-In conditioner can be used just before styling or you can apply it right before bed and leaving it on overnight to wake up with softer-feeling hair.
Hair Too Balm (200ml)
This is a bomb balm, which contains sweet orange, which is naturally anti-bacterial and helps increase circulation (great for those who like to oil their scalps). Made from a combination of natural butter and oils. It is soft to the touch and melts upon contact, so as not to weigh the hair down. Ideal for children. As a bonus, it can be used all over the body as well. The reviewer clearly states that she loved the hair balm which she uses as a sealant. However, you can use it by putting a small amount into the palm of your hands and rub them together and then, massage it through damp or dry hair. Also, you can use a comb to help to apply the balm directly to the scalp.
