The Next Generation: 8 Kids on Social Media With Incredible Natural Hair

Avatar • Aug 18, 2015

Many of us grew up in a period when it was normal to relax a child’s hair between the ages of 5 to 10 years old. These days, more and more parents are choosing to keep the hair of their daughters natural to build self love and self acceptance. Here are just some of toddlers, preschoolers, and older who are proudly wearing their beautiful natural hair.

1. Riley Elle

Remember when Riley came onto the scene as a mini toddler?  Well, now she is 5 years old and still rocking her natural hair. Here are a few photos from her instagram page, where she is described as a “Tot-treprenuer”.

2. Leah Jeffries

Some of you may recognize Leah from the show Empire, in which she plays Lola Lyon (the biological daughter of Luscious Lyon) on Empire. She is 5 years old and wears her natural hair proudly.

Cannot even remember when my mum started that’s why I didn’t even know what natural hair was

When I was starting 6th grade I got my first relaxer because my mom refused for the longest time but she was tired of dealing with all my hair so she was like ok. Now I’m entering my junior year of highschool 2 years into my transition because she refused to perm my hair.

I was in 7th grade, and my mother gave in after YEARS of me begging her to just DO SOMETHING! I was swimming almost every day in the summer and I just got SO tired of trying to deal (I was left to my own devices since 6th grade and daily rollersetting on 4c hair to look “presentable” was taking its toll). So she finally took me to her very trusted stylist and BOOM, I got my Dark & Lovely on, lol. I’m still relaxed, I just love this site as inspiration and I learn a lot from the naturalistas… Read more »

Thank you so much for featuring my daughters. We are grateful and hope that our videos help other parents, and caregivers of kids to embrace their hair and learn how to care for it in the best way. ((HUGS))

Never had a relaxer or texturizer thanks to my mom for that one. She’d probably have a heart attack if I ever got a relaxer.
