The endless swimming and fun in the sun must move over to make room for the brain filling days to begin. Going back to school is exciting and stressful, let's just be honest. We have to get back on a schedule, get all the supplies, meet new friends, and be ready to learn.
Hair care should not add to the stress. Here are a few quick tips to make it easier on you.
1. Schedule an appointment with your stylist to get a deep conditioning treatment and a trim. These appointments can take a little longer than usual, so bring extra snacks and entertainment. The time spent is worth the trouble. Once the hair has been properly cleansed, moisturized, and trimmed the styling process at home should go much smoother!
2. Plan to install styles that will last at least a week. I mean really, the morning rush is already enough! Not having to do hair until Sunday would be awesome, right? YEEESSSSS! Ok, style her hair in cornrows, two strand twists, smaller pony tails, and medium sized box braids. If you get a great style in, with lasting power, all you have to do is oil her scalp once or twice a week. (I said OIL, not GREASE. Don't you put a petroleum based product on that baby's head!)
3. Send her to bed in a scarf. Bonnets are excellent! I am absolutely in love with my custom bonnet made by Magie Noire! However, a scarf that is tied firmly reduces the amount of frizz caused by the
friction of tossing and turning little heads. A scarf may just extend the life of a hairstyle. Don't worry, you can order those from Magie too.
