Tell us a little about your Naturally Curled Cutie.
This is Baby O and she’s just a month shy of three years old. She loves getting her hair done and loves it even more when there’s a massive amount of beads in her hair so she can click and clack when she runs around. She’s got a great vocabulary, most people don’t believe when I tell her age (and also because of her height)! Her current favorite colors are orange and cheetah! (Cheetah love it)
What is your current hair care routine/regimen?
I wash her hair one night a week with CUSH mango babassu shampoo bar, unless she’s played extra hard at daycare. I use my own shea butter mixture (shea butter, jojoba, avocado, grapeseed and coconut oils). I apply it in the morning before school and at night after bathtime. On days I don’t wash her hair, I wet it down with water since it is the best moisturizer! I also use Shea Moisture Organic Hold & Shine Hair Moisture Mist Coconut & Hibiscus spray when I’m in a rush. Wash and style days are usually Sunday, so she’s fresh for the week. I like to keep a routine for our hair time, that way Baby O knows that it’s not play time even if we are watching a movie. If I see she’s getting restless then we take a potty break followed by a little running around before sitting back down to finish.
What's your go to quick style?
I just figured out sister twists—they are so easy and quick when she wants an “up” hairstyle. If I’m looking for really quick then I’ll wet her hair, moisturize it, comb it and let her wear it free with a flower clip on the side.
(Yes ladies you read that right Her own Shea butter mix) She goes into more detail about that in this post.
Whats your all time favorite products?
I love using all-natural products on Baby O’s hair—shea butter, coconut oil and things of that nature. I typically make my own product. The only things that I buy for baby O’s hair are CUSH mango babassu shampoo bar and the Shea Moisture hold and shine spray. (I absolutley lurv coconut oil)
Any tips or tricks you would like to share?
I let Baby O have input on her hairstyle. If she’s not happy with it, she pulls it out after I put her to bed. I also let her choose the accessories for her hair—beads vs ballies vs barrettes. Don’t: Style too tight—no style is worth stress bumps or traction alopecia. I also make sure to not always have it in a style. I let her wear her hair free for about one week a month. Her hair is short enough that it’s not going to get extremely tangled up. (See that ladies that is beyond true please keep in mind your baby's hairline while styling I know we all want our kids to look good but sometimes it can be too tight)
Can you share your or your child's favorite style?
