When my husband and I found out we were going to be parents, there was no doubt in our minds that curly hair is one trait our child would have. I have very curly, and wavy hair that I’ve deemed untamable. My husband, Alex, has very soft and loose curls if he allows his hair to grown long enough. We figured that if we had had a boy, the curly hair wouldn’t be a problem; girls love boys with curly hair. But we had a beautiful baby girl.
Of course, both of us panicked a little bit. Alex, because he has never had to learn how to braid hair or create pigtails. And me, I’ve yet to figure out how to care for my own curly hair, how am I supposed to take care of someone else’s?
Our little Ame is just seven months old now, and so far her curls are soft and tend to be adorable little ringlets at the ends of her hair; but who knows what her hair is going to look like in 5 years. Thankfully there are hair products that can make styling my little girl’s hair easier.
As I Am Born Curly: Organic Hair Products for Kids from Birth to 10!
As I Am®has just released a new baby and child line called Born Curly™. It’s a hair care and body line for kids from birth to 10 years old and is the only product line designed for naturally curly haired kids. The Born Curly products are professionally formulated with certified organic/natural functional ingredients which are specially designed to provide safer and toxic-free ingredients for babies and children with naturally curly hair. The products are certified organic and carry the NSF seal of approval. The NSF International certification seal of approval is assurance that the product has been tested by one of the most reliable independent certification organizations, valued by consumers, manufacturers, retailers, and regulatory agencies worldwide. These premium quality beauty products provide for “worry free” maintenance and tear-free care and styling of children’s hair.
Included in the product line are Aloe Shampoo & Wash, Avocado Shea Cowash, Argan Leave-In Conditioner and Detangler, Argan Curl Defining Jelly, Rosemary Vanilla Twist Defining Smoothie, Nourishing Hair & Body Oil, and Shea and Cocoa Butter Balm. I appreciate that most of them have a dual use, like the Aloe Shampoo and Body Wash. That means fewer products to buy!
Trying Out Just Curly on my 7-month-old Baby Girl
We tried out the products at bath time, and we love them! Their scents are sweet and light and from natural sources. The Aloe Shampoo and Wash provide gentle tear-free cleaning for children with very thick or long hair in addition to those children whose hair is prone to tangling. It’s followed by the Avocado Shea Hair Cleansing Cowash, a non-foaming and sulfate-free cleanser that doesn’t strip hair of its natural moisture. It also provides manageability and helps balance hydration.
The Argan Leave-In Conditioner & Detangler makes combing out her hair easier and minimizes hair breakage. But my favorite product is the Rosemary Vanilla Twist Defining Smoothie. It smells delicious and defines her curls beautifully.
Born Curly’s Nourishing Hair & Body Oil hydrates the skin and is luxurious after a bath, and it can be used to add shine to her hair. Finally, the Shea & Cocoa Butter Balm is a delicious way to spend a little time together connecting before bed. Massage the silky balm in to seal in moisture and give your little one’s skin and hair a glow.
I’m not so worried now about taking care of Ame’s curly hair as she grows older. She, however, has to worry about me stealing her Born Curly products! They feel fantastic, smell even better, and are certified organic; it doesn’t get much better than that!
