What are easy ways to teach my daughter how to do her hair?
I’m so glad you asked this question, because teaching your daughter how to maintain healthy hair starts with you. First of all, you’re her biggest role model, so whatever you do, she’s more than likely going to as well. If you’re relaxing your hair, she’s probably going to want her hair relaxed; if you hot curl your hair every day, she’s more than likely going to want to heat style her hair. Believe it or not, you are her teacher, so you must maintain a healthy life/hair/style as well. Teach her how to shampoo properly and deep condition. Teach her how to protect her hair from heat damage (Try Carol’s Daughter’s Macadamia Collection). Teach her how to try easy styles like Bantu knots and twist-sets (If you don’t know, go to our Get the Look section). But most importantly, teach her to LOVE her hair; the same goes for you: Love your hair—and hers. And always remember the old saying, “like mother like daughter.”
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.
