Being the mother two sons, I know all of the ups and downs involved in managing boys natural hair. I have seen it all in my home: from short fades to braids and twists. Currently, my college student is sporting an afro, and my 9-year old son wants to grow an afro too – just like his big brother.
Whether its long or short, the most important factor in managing boys natural hair is to ensure that it stays well-cared for, moisturized, and most importantly, healthy.
The variety of product lines available on the market for achieving success in managing boys natural hair is far, few, and in-between. Fortunately, I found the As I Am Born Curly hair product line, which was created specifically for natural hair, and aids in the proper cleaning, styling, and moisturizing of the delicate and curly texture of natural hair.
Born Curly products are pure, gentle, NSF Certified organic formulas that are put through extensive testing to assure the organic certification standards are met. In fact, they are the first and only NSF Certified organic* beauty products for naturally curly babies and children.
I use the entire As I Am Born Curly product line on my little boy’s hair, and it works really well! His hair is super-soft, and much easier to comb than before. And since As I Am Born Curly’s products do not strip the hair of its natural moisture, my son’s hair is not only more manageable, it also holds a beautiful shine! With one glance, it’s obvious that his hair is strong and healthy.
What I love most about the As I Am Born Curly product line is that it uses natural ingredients such as mango, cocoa, and shea butters; as well as avocado, rosemary, argan, and aloe.
The As I Am Born Curly product line includes:
- Rosemary Vanilla Twist Defining Smoothie
- Argan Curl Defining Jelly
- Nourishing Hair & Body Oil
- Argan Leave-In Conditioner and Detangler
- Aloe Shampoo & Wash
Since we have a health-focused lifestyle in our home, I no longer have to worry about what’s being used on my precious little boys’ natural hair, or stress over the ingredients and styling processes that would damage or otherwise harm his hair. Born Curly products fall right in line our healthier, more natural approach to personal care overall. I’m so glad that I found it! I know that I will be using the Born Curly products for managing my son’s hair for years to come!
Born Curly products can be purchased at any of the following retailers (Sally, Walgreens, Target, Walmart, RiteAid, and local beauty supply stores).
