Strategies for caring for your curly kids' hair before and after sports practice.
Chances are if you have a curly, active kid, you usually end up with a curly, sweaty kid by the end of the day. Chances are even higher that your little curlies aren’t in love with lots of hair grooming, before or after their sports practices either.
As the mom of a little curly girl, and a curly girl myself, I understand the “tug of war” with pre and post active little ones. Just hearing the words “but mommy, my hair is fine...” with a twinge of winey has often set the stage for some ugly scenes. However, I’ve learned a few strategies that have helped me to reduce the post-playground tears for our curly wee-ones.
Use a light mister of gentle conditioner and water or detangler on hair post shower/bath. This helps to keep little curls healthy and seems to assist in enlongating a shower or bath day, when possible.
