3 Ways to Simplify Your Afrokids Hair Regimen

(Last Updated On: September 27, 2014)

From time to time, we all get frustrated when doing our children’s hair. Believe me, I have been there! What do I do when I get frustrated? Well, I look for ways to minimize that frustration.

Here are some things that I do:

Use Multi-Purpose Products
When it comes to washing natural hair, there are so many steps; pre-poo, detangle, wash, condition, deep condition…and so on. To simplify this process,  you can opt for multi-purpose products which are designed for multiple purposes. For example, you can use a conditioner to wash and condition the hair all in one go.

Simplify Your Regimen
Make a list of what you are doing to your child’s hair. Are there some things that you are doing that does not need to be done every wash day. Revise this list and try a simpler regimen. I find that for my girls, I don’t have to deep condition their hair every time it gets washed.

Styling Options that Last Longer

If you find that you are always doing your child’s hair every week, you can look into trying different styling options that will keep the hairstyle longer and reduce over manipulation of the hair. Not only does this give you a break from the weekly hair routine, it is also a great way of protecting the hair and retaining length.
