Shirlen’s Love: Natural Hair for Kids

Although she isn’t natural herself, Sheena is in love with her daughter’s natural hair, but that wasn’t always the case. According to Sheena, “One of the most things that I love about my daughter’s hair is styling her hair. Once I figured out how to actually maintain and manage it I was in love and couldn’t keep my hands out of it. Finding the right product for your hair type is just as important as well. I used to be a major product junkie until I actually find what I was looking for.”

The Hair Regimen

Wash day is Friday. Sheena will shampoo and then give her a deep conditioner treatment. She combines and mixes the conditioner and oil in a bowl then applies the mixture to her daughter’s hair. After letting the conditioner sit in hair for no less than 30 minutes, she  rinses then moisturizes her hair and applies oil from the ends of her hair to the root. Sheena will band her hair until the next day. That is when she styles her hair.

Sheena says, “My favorite styles that like to do are buns, two strand twist, single braids, twist, braid outs and plats. Sometimes my fingers feel a little creative and I’ll throw a mohawk in the mix. For the most part I like protective hairstyles.”

  1. Awesome. I love seeing little girls (black), wearing their hair natural and healthy. I equally applaud all moms who take the time to educate themselves and start their daughters off right.
