Hair changes as you get older. Children's hair has different properties that adult hair does not contain. Here are some facts about kids' hair.
Kid's hair is more prone to damage than an adult's hair because children's hair has less keratin, a protein that forms the fibers of hair, skin, and nails. Based on diet, genetics, and general health, hair can grow up to half an inch per month.
Children's hair is usually more sensitive to chemical treatments. This is why our products here at Blessed Bananas are designed for everyone in the family to use, especially for the kiddos and their delicate hair.
Kiddos have fragile hair similar to adults but more. So brushing or combing through wet hair can cause the hair to break easily because damp hair is more delicate than dry hair. Make sure to use a wide-tooth comb or a hairbrush for detangling wet hair to prevent breakage. Using a softer touch when caring for their hair is essential to remember.
A way to promote shine in the hair is to add fatty acids. Children's scalps produce fewer lipids, making the hair more prone to dryness and frizz. Incorporating a Blessed Banana hair mask into a weekly routine will help boost a smooth and glossy finish in the child's hair.
