Fall Hair Care for Kids: Tips for Beautiful Hair

Fall Hair Care for Kids

Autumn is such a great time to be a kid. From running and jumping in the leaves to hikes in the fall leaves and even playing in the park, it's a great time to fully experience the great outdoors. While it may seem like all fun and games for your kids, their hair may not be loving the seasonal changes. They are probably either inside with the heater or outside with a hat or hair covering.

You may have already noticed that their hair is more dry, prone to damage and breakage. Just as you are probably taking special care to support your natural hair care needs this season, it's more important than ever to keep the hair care for natural hair. The good news is that our unique kid-friendly formulations are designed to support the needs of your kids' natural hair.

How to Use Luster’s Products as Part of Your Child’s Daily Hair Routine 

Luster’s products are an even more essential part of your child’s daily hair care routine during the Fall. Here are a few tips that you or your child should incorporate that are even more important this time of year. 

Complete all wet and damp hair routines the night before. When washing hair, make sure you’re washing with warm water and wash the scalp rather than the entire length of the hair. Then, braid your child’s hair and let it dry overnight for optimal hair care protection. 

Never let your child go outside with wet or damp hair in the Fall. Of course, it's also a health issue since a wet head could lead to a chill, which is never a good idea. Wet hair can also become quickly dried out and damaged in the cold and dry air. 

Begin your detangling when the conditioner is still on your child’s hair. Conditioner is vital to the health and vitality of your child's hair, but it's also crucial to daily hair care and detangling. If you wash all your conditioner out of your child's hair before you start the detangling process, you're washing away an essential ally in your battle against tangles. 

That's also why it's important to start detangling dry hair. The Pink® Kids Easy Comb Detangler is an excellent solution to help with detangling as well. Combined with Pink® Kids Detangling Spray, it's a great way to refresh curls and style your child's hair without fear of damage or discomfort.  

Remember to use our Pink Kids Curl Creation Custard and Pink Kids Frizz Free Curling Crème to support long-lasting styles. They’re great solutions that allow you to form and stretch your child’s curls while sealing in that essential moisture. 

How Often Are Luster’s Products Used This Fall Season? 

As the weather outside gets colder, your kids will probably start spending less time outdoors. They may also be less active during the Fall so that you can explore modifying your wash schedule. Here are a few possibilities. 

  • Wash every two weeks. 
  • Detangle after every wash. 
  • Refresh curls twice a week. 

Of course, if your kids are still super active and on the go, you may still need to keep them on the regular hair care routine. Let your kids' hair be your guide. If you test out a 2-week schedule and it doesn't work for you and your child, go back to your regularly scheduled washes. 

How Can You Discuss Fall Hair Care With Kids 

Natural hair care is not easy on the best of days, but a few more considerations for the Fall season. Both parents need to sit down with your child and discuss how their hair care needs might change as the season gets cold and dry. 

It's not always a fun conversation, and it's something that might evolve as your child gets older and more responsible. But, proper hair care is part of growing up. They need to know how to adequately protect and condition their hair and learn how to best care for it throughout the year. 

Most kids are already curious and starting to pursue self-care and grooming at a relatively early age. It's part of the practice they might have with their dolls, friends, or even siblings. In addition to their "regular" hair care routine, they need to consider how the changing season and environmental, outside factors might affect their self-care and grooming practices.
