The natural hair growth process is usually going to take place, especially as an infant and toddler no matter what. However, I do feel as though there are some things you can do to either, assist in the process, speed up the process or cause damage. Alot of times, we as new Mommy’s or Mom’s that aren’t familiar with the maintenance of natural hair will unknowingly do things to prevent the hair from growing..
Our regimen: I usually wash and condition McKenzie’s hair about every two weeks. Sunday evening, I’ll wash, condition then put her hair in a protective style for the week. Usually french braids or individual braids or twists. Pony tails usually don’t last. I’ll end up redoing them every morning anyway. Who has time for that?
That following Friday evening, I usually take her protective style down. Saturday and Sunday it’s usually out in a fro or I’ll do something loose and simple. Sunday evening, it’s back to a protective style, usually braids (click here for styles). After another week in that style, take down Friday, out on Saturday and Sunday. Sunday evening; wash night again! Consistency is key!
I try to share my styles on here so that you guys can get some ideas for your girls. I hope you find it helpful. I look online often for style inspiration. Pinterest and IG have saved my life many nights!!
We all see alot of different products circulating around social media and I know it can get expensive especially if you don’t see any progress, I get it! I will say that what works for one won’t always work for someone else. I have to tell people that all the time because I don’t want anyone coming back saying, “well you said”..Yes, I did say; but I also said “xyz”. With that being said, I’ve seen alot of growth since using The Mane Choice. I’ve noticed her hair stays moisturized longer and it looks and feels healthy; which is the goal.
Let me know if you purchase these products and how they worked for you!
