My Take on the H&M Debacle

H&M recently came under fire for how it styled one of its models, a young black girl with natural hair. Many people complained it didn’t look much thought went into styling the girl’s hair.
As a mother of 3 natural haired children, I’m torn. Yes, absolutely H&M should have (and could have!) done a better job. But kids aren’t always cooperative when it comes to hair. Often times they don’t want to sit still to get it styled. I know my kids almost always give me a hard time when it comes to hair. And as you can see, they have quite a bit of it.
This is why I keep their hair routine simple and use my whipped butters almost daily. I wash once every 7 to 10 days using our black soap bar, and follow up with a protein and deep conditioner. I detangle with the conditioner still in their hair, rinse, put into big braids and seal with our whipped butter (Sandalwood and Bergamot Blended Butter is what I’m currently using.)

For the rest of the week I keep their hair stretched at night to reduce tangling (put it into two loose puffs and cover with a bonnet), then in the morning I spritz with water and apply a dime sized amount of whipped butter to seal. Because our butters are so moisturizing some days I don’t need to apply it at all.

Aside from the conditioners on wash day, BGLH Marketplace products are the only ones I use on my children’s hair. They have all different textures of hair, but consistently receive compliments on the health and vibrancy of their strands.
Natural hair for kids doesn’t have to be hard and it doesn’t have to be complicated. Invest in simple, effective products that keep curls and coils soft and moisturized, as our butters do, and you can keep it looking consistently cute.
