4 Homemade Deep Conditioning Treatments for Kids with Natural Hair

In a previous post I gave the how’s, when’s, and why’s of deep conditioning for children with natural hair. If your child’s hair seems chronically dry and brittle, it’s probably time to incorporate a regular deep conditioning treatment into your child’s hair regimen. A deep conditioning treatment will improve your child’s general hair health making his or her hair smoother, more elastic, and ultimately easier to manage. But what sort of conditioner should you use? African American children’s natural hair doesn’t generally need a conditioner that’s full of silicones and alcohols. Those complicated conditioners usually have a high rate of product build-up which is no good if you want to keep the scalp clean and primed for growth. All natural conditioners are usually your best bet. They’re cheap, easy to create at home, and can be tailor made to provide the specific nutrients and things that you need to help your little one’s hair remain hydrated and healthy. Flip through to find four of my favorite homemade conditioners that you can use for a deep conditioning treatment. *Tips:
  • It’s usually not necessary to process the hair with the conditioning treatment for longer than 30 minutes.
  • Use heat whenever you can when deep conditioning – be it with a hooded dryer or by heating the conditioning treatment for a short time in the microwave
  • With food hair treatments you’ll want to make sure to rinse out the hair thoroughly. Seal the cuticle at the end of your rinse with a spray of cool water.
Keep lovin' that Afro Baby!

    Hi! Can I use a hand dryer if I do not have a hooded dryer?

    • My Afro Baby Editor
      January 9, 2018

      You absolutely could – that is, if you don’t mind blowing it around her head for 10 to 15 minutes. It would probably be easier to warm your conditioner in the microwave first before applying. Put some conditioner in a microwave safe bowl, microwave for about 15 seconds and then stir. Doesn’t need to be scalding hot, just warm. Then you can apply it to the hair in sections. Has the same effect. 🙂

    Can you save the homemade conditioner in the fridge in a mason jar until next was day….2 weeks perhaps? Or should I make it as needed?

    • My Afro Baby Editor
      January 16, 2018

      The honey and oil one you don’t even need to refrigerate. The others that contain food I would make as needed. They may keep a day or so in the fridge, but I would imagine they’d be a little less effective and possibly a little gross after a week or two. 🙂

      I REALLY LIKE WHAT I’M READING. BUT I HAVE EASY QUESTIONS. 1. WHEN YOU BLOW DRY WHAT TEMPERATURE SHOULD YOU USE? AND IS THIS DONE WITH OUT A CAP ON? 2. HOW OFTEN DO YOU DO THIS? WHAT DO YOU USE TO WASH AND DO YOU REPLY THIS AFTER OR BEFORE YOU WASH. HAIR WASH DAMAINGED AFTER BEING IN THE POOL OFF BUT MOSTLY DAILY. THIS IS THE BEST SOLUTION I HAVE READ. JUST NEED THESE QUESTIONED ANSWERED SO I KNOW I’M DOING IT RIGHT WITH NO QUESTIONS OF DOING WRONG. PLEASE HELP PLEASE.

    Hi any hair products you would recommend my daughter hair is really dry she has curly brown hair and I think her hair color plays a major part in why it gets dry but how often should I do the deep conditioner?

    • My Afro Baby Editor
      February 5, 2018

      Hair color doesn’t effect dryness but hair type, texture, and porosity do. Deep condition weekly if you feel she needs it. You may be able to back off a bit once her hair reaches good hydration levels. Here’s a great list of natural products to try: https://myafrobaby.com/natural-hair-products-kids-adults/. In the end, product selection will all boil down to trial and error. Good luck! 🙂

    when can you deep condition a baby’s hair? my daughter is 9 1/2 months currently and I use Camille rose naturals on my son and was wondering can I use it on her or Is it too early

    • My Afro Baby Editor
      February 5, 2018

      If you feel your little one would benefit, 9 1/2 month is definitely a good time to start. 🙂

        How long do i leave the maynasssie treatment in for

        • My Afro Baby Editor
          February 11, 2018

          15 to 20 minutes is standard for pretty much any deep conditioning treatment.

    My daughter is 2 1/2. She has a head full of hair right up until her ears. Then she’s bald. I can not grip it at all!
    Can you help with a hair routine… I feel like I’m doing something wrong 🙁

    ****PLEASE HELP****

    In need of some major help???? my daughter Brooklynn is 5 now but I’ve been doing her hair since the was 1 1/2. When she started going to school at 3 she began yanking out the barrettes from her hair, quickly ripping and splitting her ends, I would cut off the split ends, but noticed no matter how much I try to protect her hair, every last strand on her head ends up splitting and it breaks my heart knowing I’ll have to end up cutting off 65% of her shoulder length hair.

    What can I possibly do to protect hair ends and keep her hair growing and in a healthier state. I braided her hair last night into pig tails and wanted puffs on the top, when I went to tug at the puffs to fluff them up, her hair just ripped and felt like straw in my hands, I was devastated even though I’m always moisturizing her hair

    Please let me know if you’re looking for a writer for
    your blog. You have some really good posts and I feel I would be a good
    asset. If you ever want to take some of the load off, I’d
    love to write some content for your blog in exchange for a link
    back to mine. Please blast me an email if interested. Cheers!

    Thank you so much for these treatments, most of the products are items that I have at home except for the dryer. (Which I will go purchase this weekend) My daughters both have really brittle and dry hair, nice length but I know that I need to really invest time into learning about how to care for their hair. My only question is how often do I need to do this treatment. Currently, their hair feels like cotton and sheds quite a bit.

    Just did the banana deep conditoner for my 5 month old , her hair drinks up any moisture so fast so hopefully this hair mask will allow her to retain hydration and make her curls flourish. I cleaned her hair with appl cider vinegar diluted , then applied deep conditioner and wrapped her hair with saran wrap and placed her bonnet over it. She will be sleeping in it overnight and it will be rinsed in the morning and moisturized , sealed with oil and styled.
