My nighttime regimen is the same no matter where I am. I dampen my hair, mostly my ends, with either just water, or a bit of leave-in conditioner (usually whatever leave-in I already have in my hair that day). Then I “seal” in the moisture, focusing on my ends. I use a very creamy moisturizer that’s rich in butters and/or oils, or just coconut or castor oil, depending on what I fancy.
🙂 as well as some extra knickers (undies), socks and toothbrush + toothpaste.
– Realise that it is going to go through changes in the next couple of years in terms of texture and curl pattern. Max had straight hair until about 12 months old, so I didn’t do much to it, except shampoo and condition every now and again. Now that he has curls, and I know which bits are dryer than others, I pay much more attention to how I deal with his hair. It gets water every day, but not necessarily an actual wash.
– Use gentle products. I try to go for natural or organic products for Max, until he is at least around 4 or 5. It’s just gentler on their scalp.
