Baby and Child Hair Care Care

So as a part of my new commitment to taking better care of my booba's hair I have compiled a list of baby products that I have or will try. The products on this list are either designed for children, toddlers or babies. Most if not all of these products are natural and organic. Most are also specifically designed for cury/kinky hair. As most of these companies sell products for adults and or other products I have linked you directly to the baby and children's products when possible.

1)
Baby love
by Aubrey's Organics

2) Baby Butter Cream by Miss Jessie

3) Blended Cutie by Blended Beauty

4) Baby Bee by Burt's Bee's is the first products I used, ok but a bit drying on the skin. Since their focus is not hair they do not have a conditioner. They make a lot of other products including diaper cream, powder. the whole line smells good with the exception of the diaper cream.

5) California Baby the best baby product I have used thus far!

6)
Curlisto Kids
by Curlisto

7) Carol's Daughter They have a really cute limited edition Princess Tiana line.

8)Curly Q's by Curls

9)
Earth's Best
We have tried the shampoo and lotion, like Burt's Bee's it's a bit drying and they have a variety of other products from diapers and wipes to baby food. We love their baby food.

10) Ebene Kids

11)Fairy Tales

12) Fuzzy Duck by Mop Top I love the smell and size of this product. It became my go to when I ran out of California Baby.

13) It's a Curl! the baby line by Curls This collection works really well, however the smell is too sweet my my taste.

14) J. Blossom this line is too cute

15) Kinky-Curly Tiny Twirlsby Kinky Curly

16) Kinky, Wavy Natural by Taliah Waajid

17) Nature's Baby Organics

18) Knotty Boy a natural line for children with locs

19) Lice B Gone

A commitment to us.




Once upon a time I obsessed over my hair and the hair of my future children. I’m talking deep conditioning twice a week, only using home made products etc. That obsession turned to neglect. I ashamed to say I have not done right by my hair in a long time. And to be completely honest with myself I could be doing better with my booba’s. How can I expect her to grow up loving her natural beauty if I don’t take care of it and instill those habits in her? I don’t want her obsessing over her hair and I highly doubt I will ever take her to weekly, or even bi monthly hair salon appointments but. I do want her to love and take care of herself. I don’t want her to grow up asking for a perm because she doesn’t know how to take care of her hair.

So today I am taking a step backwards. With all that is going on in my life it is unrealistic for me claim that I will take care of my hair the way I once did, but I can commit myself to change. In fact I have already started braiding my booba’s hair much more often. Still I feel the need to make it official. I am making the following promises to myself and my booba.

I will deep condition my hair weekly.
I will stop sleeping with my hair out.
I will not allow myself or my booba to have an out doo two days in a row.
I will wash my booba’s hair twice a week, once co, once w shampoo.( this is open to change depending on how her hair takes to this)
I will invest in a sleep cap for my booba.....insha'allah this will help her dry spot
I will buy or make a hair length growth shirt..for motivation.....
