Is your tween daughter at the age where she is ready to move on from the baby hair care products? I admit, I think my 9 year old may have been using baby hair care products all her life because we also have two other young children. Recently, I realized the products were doing no justice to her beautiful, thick golden hair so I decided it was time to graduate to Dove Nutritive Solutions Shampoo & Conditioner because I wanted a formulation that would not leave excess residue on her hair.
I decided to go with Dove Nutritive Solutions because for years, Dove that I trust and have also relied on myself. I love their soap, deodorant, and skincare lines so it was a no-brainer to have my tween start using their Moisturizing Shampoo & Conditioner products. They can be found nationwide at stores like Walmart in the hair care isle.
When I told my oldest we were switching her to Dove she was so thankful because that would mean tamed, less frizzy hair, and an easier brushing experience. She use to have a hard time getting the snarls out of her hair, but thanks to DOVE Nutritive products it was a breeze combing her long locks!
My daughter was in love with the smell, the silkiness of the formula and the fact that she got to wash her own hair in the shower. We are still working on the fact that her showers might take a little longer than normal, but by switching something as simple as her hair care line, we are giving her the independence she needs in life.
Upgrade to Shampoo & Conditioner: I admit, my daughter had been using the all on one baby shampoos for years. It was only recently we started using Dove Nutritive Solutions Daily Moisturizing Shampoo & Conditioner products. They are gentle, and have been working wonders for my daughter’s hair.
Use wide paddle brushes: My daughter and I were both blessed with very thick hair. We have tried all the brushes on the market and can both agree that wide paddle brushes are the easiest for detangling wet hair gently.
Wash hair every 3 days: Even tweens should be washing their hair about every 3 days unless they sweat a lot. Washing your hair daily is very drying on your mane. Ever since we stopped washing our hair every day, we have seen a major reduction in frizz, and dullness.
Establish shower routines: Tweens will either want to shower for an hour or just under 5 minutes. It really seems as if there is not in-between with them. I found setting a timer for 10 minutes worked wonders in helping my daughter establish a good shower routine.
Towel dry hair: Since tweens are still so young, there really is no need to use harsh styling tools on their hair. Towel drying hair and allowing it to air dry is best for their little heads. Besides, they should be enjoying these more care-free times as much as they can.
Wear braids to bed for natural waves: My daughter loves wearing braids in her hair before bed. It allows her to have a natural wave when she wakes up in the morning.
Get a trim every 6 months: Tweens love visiting the hair salon (or at least mine does). By getting annual trims, you help promote hair growth and a visibly healthy head of hair.
Allow them to independently style their own hair: I know this might be the toughest of all these tips, but once I allowed my daughter to start styling her own hair before school, she became much more independent and creative. I think she just might be doing a better job than me!
I hope you enjoyed these tween hair care tips as much as I enjoyed writing them. It is hard to admit that my daughter is not a baby anymore, and more like a beautiful little lady. Did I miss any suggestions?
