Not only is having a natural hair regimen important for adults, it’s important for children as well. The girl’s wash day routine consists of me shampooing and conditioning their hair every two weeks faithfully. We’re usually busy on the weekends and they both have a lot of hair, so I keep their wash day routine pretty simple. I co wash their hair with organic coconut oil overnight and proceed with the rest of our routine the next day.
- Shea Moisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen, Grow, and Restore Treatment Masque
- Cantu Care For Kids Tear Free Shampoo
- Aussie Moist Conditioner
- Cantu Leave-in Conditioner
- Cantu Coconut Curling Cream
- Cantu Tea Tree and Jojoba Hair and Scalp Oil
After I rinse the coconut oil from the girl’s hair and scalps, I use Cantu Care For Kids Tear Free Shampoo. I immediately go in with the Shea Moisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen, Grow, and Restore Treatment Masque. I deep condition their hair for at least 30 minutes then rinse. Next, I use Aussie Moist hair conditioner to detangle. When detangling, I put the girl’s hair in four sections. Because they have so much hair, working in sections makes detangling a whole lot easier.
Once completely detangled, I apply Cantu Leave-in Conditioner to each section of their hair followed by Cantu Coconut Curling Cream. Aubrey usually gets her hair braided shortly after, so I just put her hair in a bun until then. For Courtlynn, I do two strand twists to last the entire week and I use the Cantu Tea Tree & Jojoba Hair & Scalp oil as a sealant. I pretty much use the same routine for the girls year round. Sometimes I have to switch products out, but for now this routine works for us. To learn how I do twistouts on the girl’s hair, click here.
