Every child’s rate of hair growth is different. Although attaining the optimal level of hair health should be the goal, length retention can be important as well. Here are three tips you can integrate in your regimen to stimulate growth in your child’s hair.
CREATE A CONDITIONING SPRAY
Mixing essential oils and your favorite conditioner (hint: Love My Roots Deep Conditioner is a great alternative) is a great, low maintenance way to moisturize your child’s hair on a daily basis. This also helps to cut down on the amount times you have to ‘do’ your child’s hair since this mixture acts as an instant refresher.
