Teaching our kids how to DETANGLE their HAIR


Big Sis has been showing a lot of interest in caring for her own hair since beginning of summer. She learnt how to braid hair, even practiced a little on Lil Sis o_O.

I was happy when she informed me that she would love detangle her own hair. Well! My little 8 year old is turning into a fine natural GAL! As she watched the Detangling video from our Natural Kids Hair Care playlist, she followed the steps so accurately.

She first started by finger detangling a small section...

Next, she used the wide tooth comb to further detangle that section

Lastly, she twisted up the detangled section

I was shocked as to how well she did.

Now, let's talk

Once our children start to show an interest in caring for their hair, we need to foster that interest. How long will we be the sole care-taker of their hair?  Once, they leave the house, would they have to delegate the care of their hair to someone else? Don't be afraid of letting your kids touch their hair. Of course, don't start off with teaching them to trim their hair... instead, start with something small. For us, something small was detangling, for you it may be something else.

Do you let your kids do their own hair? At what age did you start?
