Hair and Skin Care Tips for the Transracially Adopted Child

Some of the common mistakes made while treating ethnic hair range from over shampooing, under conditioning and using the wrong products to combing and detangling.   Here are five tips to help you out:

1)    Shampooing more than 1x a week is not recommended.
On “shampoo-less” days, simply do a conditioning rinse, doing so will pump much needed moisture back into her hair without stripping away essential nutrients, rinse away unnecessary dirt and oil, and give her a fresh, clean start.  Condition once a month with heat, especially in the winter. Proper conditioning is one of the most important steps for healthy hair. Unfortunately, most do not take the time to adequately do so.
