MUST READ: The Must-Have Vitamins For All Black Hair

Since so many have been commenting and asking about their healthy hair, here are three quick tips to follow for you and your child to have a healthy scalp and hair:

1. Watch The Moisturizer: You child’s hair can get extremely dry. From wearing wool hats in the winter, to going to swimming lessons, to a general rough and tumble lifestyle, so many things can zap the moisture right out of your little one’s hair. If they also have tight kinks and curls, you’ll want to pay even more attention to this. Adding a bit of extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) or jojoba oil to shampoos and conditioners is always a good move. Stick to water-based moisturizers to keep hair soft and supple in between washes and natural oils like coconut oil, argan oil, and shea butter to nourish and lubricate your child’s hair before styling.
