Four Easy Nighttime Tips to Preserve Your Child’s Hair

Nothing is worse than spending hours taming your little one’s hair into cute style, just to see it completely destroyed the next morning. No one has the time to completely recreate a new look for their child while simultaneously getting them dressed, fed and out the door for school in the morning. That’s why we gathered up a few pre-bedtime techniques that will ensure a happier, bouncier, and less frizzy morning (and even a few extra minutes of precious weekday sleep!).

BANTU KNOTS

Leave Me B Leave in Conditioner and the Irresistible Me Curl Defining Cream. Then use a wide-tooth comb to make small or large sections, depending on length, throughout the hair. Twist each section from root-to-tip and wind the twist into a taut coil that won’t easily budge at the base. Secure each with a bobby pin, and put on a silk bonnet to protect the knots from getting too messy as they sleep. How long will this take? No more than five to 10 minutes, tops! When they wake the next morning, unravel each knot, give the curls a shake, and you’re good to go.

BRAIDS

This quick and easy technique can replace quality time with styling tools in the morning, giving you and your little one more chance to hit the snooze button. If your child has multi-textured, wavy hair, a basic two-strand braid will help maintain that  care free curl pattern. Loosely braid or twist their hair and apply Shine Bright Safflower Spray to set.  When your little one wakes up, take the braids out and they should still have the original curl pattern.

A PINEAPPLE

Pineappling is such a game-changer technique that you’ll wonder how you got this far without it. For really full, natural curls, simply pulling all your child’s hair up and over near the forehead will allow you to keep their hair from literally falling flat. Lots of volume and plenty of bounce guaranteed for the A.M. Secure your child’s hair up to the top of their head and put it into a loose ponytail to prevent indents. Then leave your child’s natural curls out on the ends and secure the ‘pineapple’ with a headband, clip, or sleep cap. The next morning, Spray it with our Shine Bright Safflower Spray for a refreshed look!

We hope these techniques work!
