Skip the leave in and products???

Okay my little girls hair has been the bane of my life for the past few years but up to the age 4 I didnt really have a problem I didnt use a leave in or products I just washed conditioned and that was it!

I know her hair has changed and got drier but i was wandering if I cut out the leave in conditioner if it would be okay? It is very dry and tangly even with a leave in and tends to 'stick together' at the ends if you know what I mean!

I'm going to experiment tonight and co-wash then skip the leave in and products (I use CJCC)

does anyone think this may be a good idea or a crazy one??!!

if its dry then leave-in conditioner will help add and seal moisture so can get a good on and just aplly it to the ends if u want
CG..yep that's me!

What do you do with her hair at night? That's probably the issue.

A silk/satin pillowcase can help prevent tangling and loss of moisture (cotton both wicks moisture out of the hair and catches at hairs, making it more likely to tangle). Plaiting (braiding) it, or even putting her hair up in high pigtails might help. If she'd tolerate a scarf or bonnet, that would be another option.

Every now and then I give my hair a break from a leave-in for a few days. It is okay, but it is very important that the hair is moisturized enough to go without a leave-in. Does that make sense? For instance, I deep condition with a moisturizing conditioner overnight and then in the shower the next day if I do not want to use a leave-in. Also, the weather is important. I usually do this when the air is not dry. Also, sometimes when I do not want to use a heavy leave-in, I put avocado oil on my hair and wash a little bit of it off. This leaves a thin layer of oil on the hair, which is a sufficient protectant. This also works with natural shea butter. Good luck!
