Who says that only adults need a good bedtime hair care routine? Kids with curly hair also do! Some might think that this is a little early for their children but not for those with curly hair. We all know that curly hair needs more love and attention compared to straight hair. And this also applies to the young ones. But don’t overreact just yet! We are not talking about any fancy and laborious kid’s bedtime hair care routine like adults. We are talking about the basic steps on how you can take care of your little girl’s beautiful curls. We only need to make sure that our toddler’s hair at night is protected and moisturized.
Curly-haired kids have a difficult time keeping their locks looking neat and tidy. They can be prone to tangles and static electricity, so a nightly routine should be tailored to the needs of your little one’s hair. Here’s a bedtime routine for your curly kids.
Set a schedule
Like any other routine, your kid’s bedtime hair care routine should be done at the same time every night. Consistency is key! Make hair care as part of your kid’s everyday life just like shower and brushing their teeth. And this also trains your child to be disciplined when it comes to taking care of their body.
Moisturize even as they sleep
From a young age, your kid needs to understand that her beautiful curls need extra love and care. Teach your kid how to love her natural curls and how to take care of them properly. Make hair moisturizer a part of her everyday essentials. Choose a moisturizer or leave-in conditioner that is suitable for her young and sensitive skin. There are many child-friendly and chemical-free kid’s curly hair products which are available in the market that is suitable for your budget.
Seal them with oil
After applying hair moisturizer, seal her strands with hair oil. This is an essential step in your toddler’s overnight routine. Leaving the hair oil overnight will keep her strands moisturized. Jojoba oil or coconut oil are some of the hair oil that we recommend for your kid’s curls.
Protect them from damage
Even while these tiny creatures sleep, their hair needs to be protected. There are a few different ways to protect your kid’s curls as they sleep. You can do a pineapple hairstyle and let their hair breathe as they sleep. Or you can use a satin bonnet to protect their hair no matter how they sleep. Or if your kid does not like having anything on her hair at night, opt for silk and satin pillowcases to keep their strands from getting damaged.
