Let’s get back to braiding basics. Here’s how it’s done.
Step-by-step, here are the products you need to care for your natural hair as you grow that awesome afro.
Some natural hairstyles, like braid hairstyles for girls, are timeless. Expert stylists will, however, tell you that braids for girls need little hacks to make them less of an ordeal for both your child and the stylist. Here’s a “cheat-sheet” to African braids for kids.
Whether you are working on braids for kids with long hair or shorter hair, gentleness is key. It helps if you start off by detangling and releasing any knots with Dark and Lovely Beautiful Beginnings Ouchless Detangler. This aloe-enriched product is fortified with coconut oil to protect your child’s fragile scalp against hair breakage. It also helps to work in sections as you detangle the hair.
Kids hair braids need a little extra care to help freshen them up daily. Keep them shiny and smelling great with apricot oil-enriched Dark and Lovely Braid Spray. As an added perk, it has UV filters for extra sun damage protection.
Remember that you are working with tiny peeps who have delicate scalps. Start with simple braids for black kids that require very little nudging, pulling and twisting. Once your child is used to the pressure, you can gradually build up to the more complex braid hairstyles. By using the right products and techniques, you can disprove the adage that "beauty is pain".
