Top 15 Hair Care Brands for Curly Kids & Babies

April 21, 2016

I know have two little heads that I’m responsible for maintaining.  Peyton came out with a head full of hair.  I had no clue what to do or what to use.  I thought all babies came out bald for the first year or two.  Luckily (and unfortunately), Peyton’s and I hair are similar, dry, fine and soft.  Five years later here comes Harper with hair like a full blown adult.  Seriously, my baby looks like she was wearing a lace front wig.  It’s totally different from Peyton’s and my hair.  Harper’s hair is thick, tight, and long.  Harper’s hair has been a hot topic with emails and messages from readers asking me what I use.  I’m still working on getting Harper a hair routine and trying different products.  Good thing I’m a product junky and don’t mind trying out new products.  I put a list of some of the top kids curly hair brands that cater to our brown babies hair.Hair care header

These brands are listed in no particular order.

top 15 hair brands 11. Taliah Waajid for Kids |  2. Mixed Chicks Kids  |  3. Quidad Krly Kids  |  4. DreamKids  |  5. It’s a Curl  |  6. Shea Moisture Kids  |  7. Tiny Twirls  |  8.

I encourage you to try something new if you are not satisfied with your current products.  Everyone’s hair is different.  There is no one size fits all for hair care.  I’m only sharing brands that have a kids and baby collection.  I also use products that are not for “kids” but I just read the ingredients before using.  Like I mentioned earlier, I’m still working on both Harper’s and Peyton’s hair care routine.  Once I get it down, I will share with you guys.  Have you tried any of the products mentioned?  If you know of more awesome brands, please share in the comments.

    I have a boy but he also came out with a full head of hair… the doctor was blown away by all that hair during the birth! It has gotten longer and coiled up as he’s gotten older but I just wash and add Shea Butter while it’s wet, let his curls run free.

    I know I’m gonna have to begin to actually do SOMETHING with it soon so this last comes in handy. I do own that SheaMoisture line from an event so I’ll give that a try first.

    I find my own mixed concotion ofmineeal oil, conditioner and water work best. We’ve tried lots of products but they have all pretty much been a waste of money.

    I’m using Cantu Care brand for my daughter and she like it most. It worked for longer than a week, and smells amazing too!

    The struggle, believe me I know. I’m always trying to find the right concoction for my curls. I have used Miss Jessie’s and Shea Moisture on my niece’s hair and it seems to work well.

    I use water, coconut oil and Aussie moist conditioner in my daughter hair when I want curls to be excellent. Wash her hair with Aussie moist brand also.

    I use Cantu care for kids on my 2 year old, and we LOVE it! We use the curling cream and detangler, and I have been contemplating getting her the shampoo/conditioner too.

    My daughter 4 mos has dry scalp. Just seeing it as I was putting bantu knots in her hair today! Any suggestions she’s also getting the bald spots around the rim? I took for granted her hair quality at birth and now it seems that I’ve destroyed her hair hellllppppp

    I’d love for you to try my brand of organic hair care products for kids with textured hair. It’s called Jolie Grace. Please contact me on the website, I’d love your feedback.

    I have a now 1 year old daughter who is half Italian and half Puerto Rican. Her hair is so curly and gorgeous. It’s soft yet can get very dry and baby shampoos and conditioners just don’t do it. I tried the cozy curly for kids or whatever it’s called and I hated it. I tried Shea moisture shampoos and conditioners and wasn’t too impressed either. I have now began using a combination of the Johnson’s blue bottle of shampoo and conditioner for baby’s and it smells great also. But then I also follow up with a deep conditioner and I love love love the it’s a 10 deep condition mask. After her hair is towel dried I use a product by Shea moisture called “coconut and hibiscus curl and style milk w/ silk protein and neem oil, moisturize & curl define thick curly hair” it’s all naturally basically, smells AMAZING & her curls have NEVER looked SO GOOD!!! & TRUST when I say I have tried SO many conditioners and leave in products .. nothing works like this. Definitely a holy Grail. One thing I’d forgotten about though until reading into this subject was “mixed chicks” , my son is 10 and also mixed but he’s half Italian half black so his hair is a little kinkier and more dry but so curly and basically the same just not as soft with tighter curls than my daughter. Mixed chicks worked Really well for him and one other brand I saw on a top 10 list that I used to buy from Sally’s for about $10 and it came in a tall white bottle with green letters on it…. It was a leave on spray and it worked AWESOME as well. Maybe better than mixed chicks but I’ll have to try them both befoee I can rule out this Shea moisture leave in as my new holy Grail! Seriously go grab it. It isn’t expensive and it’s awesome.
