Every parent should have the following hair tools in their arsenal of hair supplies. These are tried and true classics that will not only make hair time easier but fun!
A spray bottle or two make keeping your child’s hair moisturized so much easier. One bottle could be dedicated to special spritzes and the other just for water. I use mine daily.
Now this is not to “protect” hair from getting wet quite the contrary. It should be used for deep conditioning. Anytime you apply a deep conditioner (e.g. clay conditioner) you should cover the hair with a shower cap to keep in the moisture. Note: I never use a shower cap when showering; free steam for my hair!
Hair bands are not only for styling but also make distributing product through the hair much easier. I like to do hair by halves or quarters. By sectioning with hair bands it ensures that I spread product evenly.
For the really young ones I recommend a satin pillowcase so they can sleep free and unencumbered but around age 10 I would teach them about tying their hair up. I like the one where it is shaped to hold longer hair because it’s comfortable and holds all sorts of styles.
Applicator bottles are great for targeting the scalp. I would use this for Apple Cider Vinegar Rinses (1 TB + 1 C H2O). It’s also great for oil treatments.
