Ever look at your child’s hair, and the products, and wonder just what to do with them? I thought that way and was overwhelmed at first. I asked Stacey for a few tips originally and then I eventually found a routine that works pretty well.
I learned not to wash my beauties hair every day – once a week was all their hair needed as it helps to retain their natural hair oils. So, every Sunday afternoon we wash hair.
First, I rinse the hair completely. I then use the Soy Cream Shampoo and lather through their hair evenly.
Then I rinse, and pat dry only – never rub.
Then, I take a quarter size of the Curl Quenching Conditioner and finger comb it through the hair.
This part can be a tad frightening as your hands will come away with a lot of hair – don’t let this concern you! This happens because you aren’t combing their hair every day – I think the age old adage says that you loose 100 strands of hair a day.
I try to work out any tangles that I can at this point but if the hair is too knotted then I let the conditioner sit. I cover their hair with a plastic bag (any store grocery bag works or I buy plastic hair caps at Wal-Mart). I let this sit for about 30 minutes and then I rinse thoroughly.
After rinsing, I pat dry, trying to get all the water off,
and apply the hair product Curl Styling Butter. I do this in sections, making sure I focus on the crown where the hair tends to be frizzy . I then take sections of the hair and twist, making about 12 twists total.
I then let the hair air-dry and when it is time for bed; I keep the twists intact, and put the sleep cap over the curls.
The next morning, I spritz the hair with water, and undo the twists. If needed, I use a small bit of product around the hairline and the ends to freshen any hair that needs it.
I have found that this regime works wonderfully on all three of my beauties even with different textured hair. You may find that this regime works for you or you may find a modification works better. If you wash in the morning instead, you may not need to do twists, since the curls will air dry through the day. Whichever the method you chose, as long as you use Blended Beauty products you can’t go wrong!
Here’s to all of our beautiful blended beauties,
