I’ve been asked a few times what products do I use in my daughter’s hair/ what is her current hair routine. Let me start by saying I am not a professional or anything, this is just what works for my daughter’s hair. Some of these items and ideas may not work for you and that’s ok. It took a very long time for me to get to where I am with my daughter’s hair regimen, so hopefully this list can help someone improve their own child’s hair care. With that being said, today I’d like to share a few essentials from my princess’s current hair care routine.
Shampoo & Conditioners:
I wash Brielle’s hair every 2 to 3 weeks depending on the style. My go-to shampoo is Creme of Nature Ultra Moisturizing shampoo, I grew up using it and love the way it makes her hair feel. Sometimes I may switch it up and use Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Curl/Shine Shampoo.
For conditioner I use Creme of Nature Moisture Extreme conditioner, and I also deep condition Bri’s hair at least once a month with Mielle Organics Babassu Oil & Mint deep conditioner.
Leave-In Conditioner & Detangler:
Ok, I will admit I’m not a big fan of leave-in conditioner; it weighs Bri’s hair down so I don’t use it very often. However, detanglers are my ish because she has REALLY thick hair just like her mom and her shrinkage is insane. My favorite detangler is Silk Elements Curly Cuties spray since it adds a good amount of slip to her hair, making her curls easy to comb and eliminating painful hair combing breakdowns.
Before styling or blow drying her hair I add a little of Mielle Organics Mint Almond oil to her hair and scalp.
I recently started using Just for Me Hair Milk as a daily moisturizer when her hair is in puffs or twist and so far I’m loving it.
Most nights Brielle will sleep with her silk bonnet cap I purchased from Sally’s Beauty Supply store. However, she’s a wild sleeper so it’s not surprising that by morning the bonnet has managed to become part of the lost and found in the area between her bed and wall. So some nights I may tie an extra silk scarf around her hair prior to placing her bonnet on.
I did my best to narrow down the most important ideas and products I use in her hair regimen. None of these products are set in stone because I may switch things up based on her hair needs, seasons, and sometimes I just like to try new things.
