After your child hits the one-year mark it’s important to routinely deep condition the hair. Keep in mind that steaming the hair while covered in deep conditioner allows the product to penetrate even deeper.
Regardless of the texture of your child’s hair is, it’s important to moisturize it daily, concentrating on the ends.
Develop a haircare routine for your child and tweak as needed. Pay attention to your child’s hair. Is it dry? It is thin? It is very thick? Stick with a routine that works, but if it’s no longer working, don’t be afraid to change it up.
Sometimes wearing braids that are too tight (or worn for months) can cause edges to thin. Try not to braid your child’s hair too tight as it can also cause little bumps and unnecessary headaches.
