Back to School Hair Care: Tips and Tricks for Parents of Children with Natural Curly & Coily Hair

As the summer draws to a close, it's time to gear up for a new school year. For parents of children with natural curly or coily hair, the back-to-school season can come with unique challenges. From managing their hair in the morning rush to keeping it healthy and presentable throughout the day, it's essential to have the right strategies in place. In this article, we will share valuable tips and tricks to help parents navigate the back-to-school hair routine, ensuring that their children's natural curls or coils are both beautiful and manageable. Additionally, we will highlight how the RevAir reverse air dryer can be a game-changer in this routine, loved by moms for its healthiness, ease of use, and tear-free drying.

Establish a Hair Care Routine

Consistency is key when it comes to managing natural curly or coily hair. Establishing a regular hair care routine will not only make mornings more manageable but also promote healthy hair growth. Set aside specific days for washing, conditioning, and styling your child's hair, and stick to the routine as much as possible.

Nighttime Prep

To make mornings less stressful, consider doing some prep work the night before:

  • Detangle gently: Use a wide-tooth comb or your fingers to gently detangle your child's hair, starting from the ends and working your way up. This will minimize tangles and knots in the morning.
  • Protective styles: Opt for low-manipulation protective hairstyles like braids, twists, or buns. These styles keep the hair contained and reduce tangling during sleep.
  • Satin or silk pillowcases: Encourage your child to sleep on a satin or silk pillowcase, which helps reduce friction and prevents hair breakage.

Quick Morning Routine

Mornings can be hectic, but with a few time-saving techniques, you can get your child ready and out the door with ease:

  • Refresh and hydrate: Spritz your child's hair with water and apply a leave-in conditioner or moisturizer to rehydrate their curls or coils. This helps revive the hairstyle and adds moisture to the hair.
  • Finger-styling: Instead of using brushes or combs, use your fingers to style and shape their hair. This reduces frizz and maintains the natural texture of their curls or coils.
  • Use lightweight products: Opt for lightweight styling products that won't weigh down the hair or create build-up. Look for products specifically designed for curly or coily hair that provide hold and definition without stiffness.

Keeping Hair Healthy Throughout the Day

As your child goes about their school day, it's important to ensure their hair stays healthy and presentable - here are a few recommendations!

  • Protective hairstyles: Encourage your child to wear protective hairstyles, such as braids or updos, that keep their hair secure and minimize manipulation. This helps reduce breakage and tangling during activities.
  • Satin or silk headscarf: If your child participates in physical activities, have them wear a satin or silk headscarf to protect their hair from friction and sweat.
  • Moisturizing spritz: Prepare a DIY moisturizing spritz with water and a leave-in conditioner. Spritz your child's hair during the day, or slip in their backpack, to provide a boost of hydration and combat dryness.

RevAir: Making Back-to-School Hair Care a Breeze

Parents love the RevAir reverse air dryer for its incredible benefits in their back-to-school hair care routine. With its innovative reverse-air suction technology, RevAir dries hair from root to tip, resulting in healthier hair and a tear-free experience. Here's how RevAir can be a game-changer for parents:

  • RevAir provides quick and gentle drying: The reverse-air suction dries hair efficiently, reducing drying time and eliminating the need for prolonged exposure to heat. This ensures that your child's hair is dried thoroughly while minimizing damage.
  • RevAir prevents tears and discomfort: Traditional hair dryers can be noisy and uncomfortable for children, leading to tears and resistance. RevAir's gentle suction eliminates the need for heat and loud noises, resulting in a calm and tear-free drying experience.
  • RevAir promotes hair health: By drying hair in a controlled and gentle manner, RevAir helps maintain the hair's natural moisture balance, reducing the risk of dryness, breakage, and frizz. It keeps your child's curls or coils looking vibrant and healthy over time.
