I truly thought I had hit the lick when I had two boys….meaning no hair braided, no detangling, no deep conditioners, and no salons?
I was ever so wrong.
The boys require just as much maintenance as me it seems. My biggest problem is the lint the boys catch in their kinks and curls. Satin pillowcases for boys? 🤔
My routine for them, mainly Sage because Jus still has those baby curls going, is quite simple and old school.
Mango butter hair grease.
And if it’s a special occasion I drop some of that Cantu Curling Cream on them. I have tried all types of products on my hair and it lead my to this, the cheaper one. So I refuse to troll through baby hair products.
I wash their hair with Castille soap and use coconut oil as a leave in conditioner. Sage has super curly hair like mine and his shrinkage is real too. I use hair grease daily to keep his scalp moisturized so his hair won’t look so dry. I lightly trim his ends every four or five months especially if the ends become knotted.
These products work well for me, no hassles and it’s cost effective as well. The grease is a $1 and lasts for about a month. The coconut oil I purchased from Your Dekalb Farmer’s Market, here in Decatur, Ga and I literally have it for months with all the use we get out of it. And the Castille soap,…….is $1.50 a bar at Big Lots and it’s pure Castille. I forgot to snap a pic but I will post of pic later when I restock.
A total of $2.50.
What products do you use on your son’s hair? Is keeping boys’ hair as high maintenance as having girls?
*****the opinions expressed on LCC are just that, MY two cents!*****
