For the past couple of months I've switched up the way we do things so it's a much more enjoyable task for all those involved.

The first thing I did was change how I washed McKenna's hair. We used to do it in the tub during bath time and it was an absolute nightmare. I honestly don't think we made it through a night without her screaming and crying. Instead of the tub, I now wash her hair at our (thoroughly cleaned) kitchen sink. She can lay back and play with a toy while I wash her hair uninterrupted. Now her bath times are more pleasant and enjoyable for us all!

The second thing I did was find products that made dealing with her coils a little easier. Washing and detangling curly toddler hair can be a daunting task, but these products definitely help make it a breeze:

After McKenna's hair is washed and I've applied the leave-in I style it, which lasts for a couple days before I have to moisturize and restyle it. I plan on doing another post on our everyday toddler natural hair routine and all the products I use to grow her hair, so keep checking back for that!

  1. I don't have any children yet but I LOVE shea moisture. I also find that using a detangling brush in my natural hair makes life so much easier lol.

  2. Thank you for sharing this! Wash day with my toddler isn't a fun task. I love all her curls and it could be fun, but she hates getting her hair done. I've tried the SSheaMoisture Marshmallow Root & Blueberries Kids 2-in-1 Detangling Leave-In Conditioner and I love it! I haven't tried the 2-in-1 shampoo/conditioner yet.

  3. I didn't even know Shea Moisture had a kids line. Major news to me! I bet it smells amazing and works wonders!
