Can you guess what my favorite natural kids hairstyle is? I’ll give you a hint. Check out my Instagram page. Which hairstyle do you see Little Z rocking most often? We get tons of compliments on her hair as well as inquiries about what products we use.
Reasons why this style is my favorite:
- It’s natural baby
- Easy (ish) to maintain
Yep, it’s the all mighty Afro! My girl is a big hair, don’t care kind of gal. These days I have been doing more braided styles because it’s easier with two little ones but our first and true love is the ‘fro. If I am good, Zoe’s afro is very easy to maintain with nightly twists or even large plats but some nights I am too exhausted and then we have a big poofy mess on our hands.
Zoë’s hair literally drinks up products so keeping her hair moisturized is a priority. There are days I just let it be but for the most part I use one or a combination of our favorite products to keep her style fresh. After trying many children’s hair products with little to no success, I realize that Zoë’s hair texture either needs more amped up products or something. Switching to products marketed for everyone has been a big help. So which ones do we love the most?
For shampoo and conditioner, we stick to the kid friendly stuff because a no tears formula is a must. The winner is Shea Moisture
- Camille Rose Curlaide Moisture Butter
- Alikay Naturals Moisture Rich Hair Parfait
- Raw Coconut Oil
- Camille Rose Almond Jai Twisting Butter
- Just For Me Hair Milk Smoothing Edges Creme
Some of these brands have children’s lines plus there are brands I have not tried so maybe We will buy a few to see if any of them work as good as our favs. Check in next week on how I prep and maintain Little Z’s fro. Until then what’s your favorite natural kids hairstyle and products?
