I have had to instinctively slap, swat or grab strange white women's hands coming in to reach for Kaya's hair many times. 
I still don't understand why some people think they are entitled to pet a stranger's child but.... Today on okdani.com I wrote about some of my family's experiences as an #interracialcouple with #mixedkids.

I gave tips on what NOT to do or say when interacting with mixed families.

Link in profile. Please check it out and share liberally. 
I am annoyed that in 2020 a post like this needed to be written, but I hope in writing it I can help other mothers of mixed (or Black) children who deal with this type of nonsense on the regular.

Products and Tools

*Some links may be affiliate links. We may get paid if you buy something or take an action after clicking one of these.

 

Tools You'll Need for Conditioning

Plastic Caps

*Tip: Plastic processing caps will be invaluable in you and your child’s natural hair journey. You’ll use them for pre-pooing and deep conditioning regularly so stock up. (Of course, if you’re out of processing caps you can always use a grocery bag.)

Distractions

*Tip: If you have a wiggly toddler to contend with, distractions should be on deck before you begin handling their hair. Snacks, favorite toys, cell phones and tablets can all work wonders at keeping “the crankies” away during hair time.

Honey & Bananas

*Tip: As an alternative to a harsh store bought deep conditioner you may opt to create your own deep conditioning treatments for your little one until they get a little older. Bananas and honey are the ingredients some fantastic deep conditioning treatments, so have some of these on hand.

Applicator Bottle(s)

*Tip: Applicator bottles are perfect for applying homemade conditioners, oil mixtures, or other cleansing products.

Tools You'll Need for Washing

Plastic Clips

*Tip: You’ll find that plastic hair clips will become indispensable. Use them during your conditioning and washing process to keep hair sectioned. Conditioning and washing hair in sections keeps hair from knotting and tangling.

hooded-bonnet-hair-dryer-natural-hair

Bonnet or Hooded Dryer

*Tip: Little to no heat is best when it comes to taking care of your little one’s natural hair; but when you’re doing a conditioning treatment on your little one’s hair, a hooded dryer can be your best friend. Use heat during conditioning to help product penetrate the hair shaft.

microfiber-hair-towel-natural-hair-tools

Microfiber Towel

*Tip: Regular bath towels have the potential to pull and break hair strands and create frizzies. Purchasing a microfiber towel is a great investment when it comes to drying your little one’s hair.

Tools You'll Need for Styling

edge-brush-natural-hair-tools

Edge Brush

*Tip: Of course a new toothbrush would work just as well, but the thin nylon bristles on edge control brushes are perfect for smoothing unruly flyaways and laying those edges like a champ.

kinky-curly-styling-gel-natural-hair

Herbal Gel

*Tip: Used in tandem with the edge brushes, an herbal gel will help to make protective styles look neat and tidy and can ultimately make the style last a little longer.

rubber-bands-natural-hair-children

Rubber Bands

*Tip: You may be surprised to find these on the list; but the reality is that rubber bands are perfectly okay to use if used properly. They should not be wound too tightly, and when it’s time to remove them cut them out carefully with nail clippers or child safety scissors.

Satin Hair Bonnet

*Tip: In order to reduce friction from bed clothes, maintain moisture, and extend the wear of a protective style, a satin scarf or hair bonnet is a necessity.
