5 of my Favourite Kids Products for Afro Hair

Hi All

As you know my kids have two different hair textures. One a bit more coily than the other. I probably am quite good at really looking after my little girl's hair but not paying too much attention to my son's hair. I was however able to find product I could use on both childrens hair.

1) Curly Q's Milshake

Curly Q's Milshake

This product is perfect for my daughters hair and I have used it in mine too. Great texture and not too runny. What I love most about it is the smell, just gorgeous, like caramel. Its not greasy at all and my for my daugters fine hair this is perfect. If you wanted to know more about how to style and take care of kids afro hair Click Here.

4) Mixed Chicks Shampoo for Kids (and conditioner)

I bought quite a lot of this last year when the kids were swimming so haven't experimented much with any other shampoo and conditioner, but so far I can't fault them. The ingredient in the shampoo that keeps me with this set is the citric acid which is perfect for washing chlorine out of the childrens hair. I put shea butter on their hair usually Vintage from Hug My Hair before they go in the water to keep as much chlorine out of their strands as possible then I wash with the Mixed Chicks Shampoo and conditioner for kids. I look forward to trying California Baby kids swim shampoo too!

Ingredients: Water, Lauryl Glucoside, Disodium Cocoamphoacetate, Sodium Methyl Cocoyl Taurate, Disodium Lauryl Sulfosuccinate, Sodium PCA, Glycerin, Caprylyl Glyco, Caprylo Hydroxamic Acid, Citric Acid, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Oil
