Tiffany’s Advice is to Always Moisturize Curly Hair!

In this week’s Curl Type of the Week feature, we interviewed a young and beautiful 6 year old girl with a social media influence, named Tiffany! Here are Tiffany’s mom’s responses to some of our questions concerning her lifestyle, curly hair, and helpful tips on how to manage curly hair based on her own experience, that can then be passed on for other curly haired boys and girls to apply to their own hair:

1) Introduce yourself!  What is your age, grade, favorite books, movies, favorite quote, song? What is her favorite school subject? Favorite activity? Favorite thing to do in her free time?

Tiffany is a 6 year old girl in year 1 at grade school. Tiffany loves to dance and attends weekly street dance and ballet classes. She loves to play with her Barbie dolls and watch the Disney movie, Frozen during her free time. Tiffany sure does sound like a fun girl to hang around with!

2) Your curls! What is your hair curl type? If you don’t know, please check out our reference page here

Based on our hair curl type reference page, Tiffany’s mom says that her daughter’s curly hair type is 3A spirally curls.

3) Who else in your family has curly hair? Check out our family tree here which is a fun and educational way to trace the legacy of your hair!

It turns out that Tiffany is not the only person in her family to have beautiful curly hair! Tiffany is the youngest of 7 children and they all have curly hair. Tiffany and her siblings are half white and half black Caribbean. We love that she is surrounded by family members with curly hair, who can give her the right curly hair advice! We also believe that having immediate access to curly haired family members can increase your child’s confidence in their own curly hair! Given that she and her siblings all have curly hair, they all can help each other out as they grow older!

4)  How do you like to wear your hair?

Tiffany’s mom says that her daughter loves to wear her curly hair down the best. We think she looks wonderful with whatever hair style she chooses to wear!

5) Hair care tips!  What are some hair care tips you can share for taking care of your curly hair? Best advice for kids with curly hair?

One important hair tip that Tiffany’s mom recommends for other kids and their parents to use when taking care of their curly hair is to use a detangling cream to help comb through your child’s curly hair at any time of the day. Using a detangling cream or any type of moisturizer is known to simplify the detangling process, which makes it easier on both the child and the parent managing their curly hair.

6) What do you wash and condition your hair with? How often?

In terms of curly hair care routine, Tiffany’s mom uses an avocado shampoo soap bar and conditioner as often as 1-2 times a week to wash her daughter’s curly hair. She also uses the Cantu Shea butter moisturiser cream to set the curls in place.

7) How often do you wash your hair and why?

Tiffany’s mom washes her daughter’s hair as often as once or twice per week. She says that she usually will start to wash her daughter’s curly hair more frequently once the weather starts getting warmer.

8) Are you a morning hair washer or an evening washer, why?

Even though Tiffany did not give a specific preference, the time in which you choose to wash your curly hair is totally dependent on you. Washing your hair either in the morning or in the evening has its own pros and cons, but making time to wash your curly hair is based on your time and convenience. What is most important to remember is that every person with curly hair needs a proper hair care routine!

9) If you do your hair at night and sleep on it, what do you do in the morning? Any tips for making the style last overnight?

During the night time, Tiffany’s mom keeps her daughter’s hair down and gently combs her hair after she wakes up in the morning with a hair detangling cream. This is so important to keep in mind while trying to manage your child’s curly hair, because adding moisture to the hair will make the process simple and far less time-consuming than if you did not moisturize their hair!

10) Has curly hair impacted your child and her self-image, please provide details on her “hair journey”.  Did she always love her hair or was it something that happened over time? 

Tiffany’s mom says that her daughter loves her curly hair but does get frustrated when it gets knotty sometimes. We can relate to that, Tiffany! Always remember to moisturize curly hair!

11) Have you read our Curlee Girlee book series? If not get your copy by clicking here. Our Curlee Girlee books were written to ensure that all curly girls belong to our Curlee Girlee family and learn to love and embrace their curls understanding that their hair is part of a greater legacy they share with those who came before them and will one day share with those who come after.

Tiffany’s mom says that she and Tiffany have not read the Curlee Girlee series yet but she will definitely look at the books!
