What product to use in my 14 month old hair
Sinçe my baby turned 3months I’ve used virgin coconut oil in her hair when she turned about 8months i started to add jojoba oil with the virgin coconut oil and they worked great but now my baby hair got so thick its not keeping it moisturize …so I jus started using raw Shea butter and still looks dry after couple hours am thinking about shea mositure but i need expert advise first but in my country there’s no kids line in the shea moisture and also am using aveeno baby shampoo am thinking maybe its time to switch to something else….i really hope you reply .Thanks in advance
A few questions: Before you apply any of the oils, do you spritz her hair with water from a spray bottle first? If not, you could just be sealing in dryness which could be a big part of your problem. Also, is her hair long enough for protective styles (braids, twists, cornrows) ? If so, her hair should be in one at least 50% of the time. This will help her hair to retain moisture and length. If her hair isn’t long enough, then spritzing with water before applying products can make all of the difference.
At 14 months she’s more than old enough to begin a deep conditioning regimen. You can feel free to graduate her from the kids line of Shea Moisture and use the regular line. Deep conditioning should be done after each shampoo each week. Here’s an article on homemade deep conditioning treatments. Everything you need is probably already in your fridge and pantry so no need to worry about purchasing expensive products. 🙂
