As a busy mom, how can I keep my child's hair healthy?
ANGIE SAYS: I totally understand. Running behind 2 boys, working, wobbling around with a 6 pound baby in my belly, and trying to make sure my boys at least LOOK like someone combs their hair can be a challenge.
I would try styles that last like braids or cornrows. A girlfriend of mine washes and cornrows her daughter’s hair every Sunday night. The cornrows last all week, then she pulls them out on Saturday for fun, and fabulous weekend curls! This means you’re only doing hair one day a week! Not bad, right. Make sure you tie your little one’s hair down at night or throw on a silk night cap on her head before bedtime. To spice it up during the week, add ribbons or different colored bows inside the cornrows or at the end of each one. I also recommend that you use Carol’s Daughter Hair Milk Collection—it will give the weekend curls definition and unbelievable shine!
Carol’s Daughter knows that transitioning isn’t easy—that’s why the brand has founded TransitioningMovement.com, a site dedicated to providing the resources that women need to embrace their natural hair. This definitive online source on how to transition was founded on the idea that every woman should celebrate her own unique beauty. As women transition from relaxed to natural hair with protective styles, the big chop or long or curly grow-outs, we aim to support them as they brave the change with fun, informative and helpful features. Let’s get back to the basics of natural beauty.
