I must admit, I’m not as regimented and precise with my daughter’s hair care as I am with my own. The few things that I have purchased for her in the past were just ok (or terrible). And the rest of the stuff that I use in her hair are from my own hair stash, which isn’t necessarily geared towards natural hair care. This week, I decided to purchase some new hair products just for her. I mean, yeah she’s only 18 months but she deserves to have her own hair stash, right? …it’s never too early for healthy hair care. 🙂
Cleansing and Moisturizing Hair Products
To shampoo, I was using baby shampoo. And to moisturize her hair, I was using my Elasta QP Olive Oil & Mango Butter Leave-in. But I wanted to switch to something that was more geared towards a child’s hair. That is where the Curly Kids came in. I saw Kendra Chantel’s review on this line and once she said that the products were only $5 I was game. An extra bonus was that Sally’s had them for $3.79 and there was a Buy 2 Get 1 free sale that I took advantage of — double score!!
Hair Styling Products
I do my best when it comes to styling my daughter’s hair, but I need to improve my skills, especially with braided/twisted styles. No matter what style I attempt on her hair it is always super frizzy (to the point where it looks like she’s rocking a short fro). And the fact that I try to get the braided styles to last 3-4 days at a time doesn’t really help the situation. I browsed the store for a styling product that might help to improve the results I’ve been getting, which led me to the Elasta QP Feels Like Silk Liquid Styling gel. I was a little weary about using a gel type product on her hair, but some of the other kids brands carried a similar product. And this Elasta QP one says that it is safe for regular use on children and it washes out easily. Hopefully, I have some success with these products.
…now the Silk Elements Keraminerals Conditioner is all mine! lol. You know how I feel about that stuff 💞.
