Hair Care Tips for Damaged Summer Hair
If you’re noticing your daughter’s hair is looking dull, dry, frizzy and damaged, you’ll want to ensure you have the perfect healing ingredients in her natural hair care products. Little girls want to feel special too, so you’ll want a hair care line specially formulated for her, with gentle, natural, moisturizing ingredients. For shampoo day, you’ll want a gentle and nutritious shampoo that is free from sulfates, parabens, colorants and other harsh chemicals like our Sofn’free n’ pretty Olive & Sunflower Oil CombEasy Shampoo. To add flexibility and strength to your daughter’s hair, look for natural, nourishing ingredients like olive oil and sunflower oil. After shampooing, and rinsing, gently squeeze moisture out of your daughter’s hair with a T-shirt or microfiber cloth. Avoid terrycloth towels, as they can pull at hair, causing breakage.
Damaged hair needs a restorative repair treatment like our Sofn’freen’prettyShea Butter Damage Repair Treatment. This restorative repair treatment strengthens, conditions and moisturizes hair and scalp while repairing damage and promoting healthy growth. With natural ingredients like shea butter and omega 3 fatty acids, you can be sure your daughter is getting only the best in natural hair care.
Super Cute Summer Styles
Lots of parents choose protective styles for their daughters in the summer months. Here are a few great styles to get you started.
Twists – Twists are so versatile, you can go big or small with your twists and you can wear them up or down. Form bantu knots with your twists for another protective style that can also look great as a knot out.
Braids – Braids are super easy to install and maintain. You can wear them up or down, go with big braids or small, from the scalp or pony tails, and don’t forget the French braid, and jumbo braid for an on-trend look.
Updos – There is quite a bit of variety here. You can braid or cornrow up to the crown of your daughter’s head and top it off with a bun, spirals, braids or natural coils. The sky’s the limit with this look and you can change up the top section to suit your daughter’s daily desires.
