Natural Kids: Chloe and Halle ~Stars in the Making

Many moons ago I did another post of a child star from the Disney channel, Skai Jackson. Catch that post here. Now there’s some new girls on the block and these lovely young ladies can SANG! They are the winners of Radio Disney The Next Big Thing singing competition. These girls are so very talented. Playing musical instruments, these girls have had guest roles in The Fighting Temptations, Meet the Browns, and House of Pain. Their YouTube channel has over 12 million views! Did I mention they have two songs now available on iTunes! Here’s  link to their Facebook page showcasing their natural locs! At only 12 and 14 years old, these girls have a bright future ahead of them!

Natural Kids: Wash Day/Detangling–Make it easier for her and you!

Mommy nooooooo!!!!!! *chases child around room with comb*

Does this setting sound familiar to you? As a kid with a lot of hair, my mom (and aunts) were often overwhelmed with my hard to manage hair. Tired arms and tears where the norm. Well those days are no more with simple practices that can make washing her precious curls a breeze!

These are the tools you will need

Grab some toys, coloring books, and movies they will help keep your little princess occupied. Snacks are great too! TAKE BREAKS if she begins to get antsy let her stretch and grab a drink of water. You want this experience to run as smoothly as possible.

Finger detangling is your best friend!! Spraying a conditioner mix (w/plain H2O) will help “melt” those tangles and knots. The conditioner I used (pictured above) is a cheap conditioner by VO5  I found at Meijer. You can use whatever you have on hand.

 

1. Saturate hair with conditioner mix.

2.  Section hair in workable sections and secure with hair clips

3. Working one section at a time. Begin separating any tangles or knots with ONLY your fingers.

4. GENTLY comb out any further tangles with a shower comb or paddle brush. If you run into a ‘trouble’ area STOP combing and work out the tangle with your fingers and proceed with the comb.

5. Braid (I find that these stay together better than twist) the detangled section.

6. Continue until entire head is detangled.

I found a great YouTube channel GirlsLoveYourCurls that has some great ino and styles for your little curly! Check out her Facebook page too here.
