Being outdoors can lead to some seriously crazy hair for my kids—especially Maddie Grace, who loves having long hair. I was thinking about chopping it all off before we discovered new JOHNSON’S® haircare for Kids. And then there’s Tripp, who has fine and short hair (he’s only ever had one haircut!) but we still want it looking good and healthy.
Always wash after the pool or getting sweaty. The easiest way for my kids to get matted hair is to not wash it after these things. Products like JOHNSON’S® Clean & Fresh and Shiny & Soft lines are great for active kids with all hair types. Using JOHNSON’S® For Kids speciality haircare has made a big difference in getting my kids to cooperate with bath time. JOHNSON’S® Clean & Fresh and Shiny & Soft lines are available at Target in the baby section near the bath time and hair products.
These products are so gentle, so it doesn’t bother their eyes, and they really love the characters on the bottles and colors of the formula (they are pink and blue obsessed—surprise).
Use a conditioning spray. I use JOHNSON’S® Shiny & Soft and Clean & Fresh Conditioning Sprays on my kids after bath time and also use it every time I brush Maddie Grace’s long hair. Maddie Grace loves the princess on the bottle, and calls it her “princess hair spray.” We both love the way it smells and how it gives her super soft, thicker, fuller looking hair. It’s full of the good stuff, like Argan oil and silk proteins, but it doesn’t have parabens, phthalates, sulfates, or dyes. It also has No More Tears® (Gentle), is hypoallergenic, and is ophthalmologist & pediatrician tested. Use a wide toothed comb to gently comb it in!
Brush it twice a day. At least, if you have a long-haired girl. And while we use a comb when hair is wet, I always use a kid’s brush when brushing dry hair. This way, we really get all the tangles out so none of them get worse. I also spray some of JOHNSON’S® Shiny & Soft Conditioning Spray every time I brush it to make it easier to brush and give the hair some extra shine!
Don’t let them always wear it down if they have long hair. When Maddie Grace’s hair is down, it gets in food, gets sweaty, ends up in her mouth, etc. And all these things are really rough on kids’ hair! She doesn’t love having it in a ponytail but she does love having it in braids, so we’ve done that a lot lately (and if you do a loose braid while wet, you can get some pretty curls when it dries). Because having it up all the time can put a lot of pressure on their heads, it’s good to mix it up between wearing it up and down though!
