Follow this hair regime to maintain your child's crown: 

To retain moisture

Hair thrives on moisture to be healthy and strong. The Just For Kids Pink Oil Moisturiser Maxi Shine is a non-greasy formulation that helps restore oils and moisture in your child's hair, leaving it soft, shiny and more manageable. 

For instant moisture for dry and brittle hair and improved scalp health, the Just For Kids Scalp Soothing Oil Moisturiser seals moisture and helps protect against breakage - leaving it soft, shiny, and manageable. 

Ideal for natural and relaxed hair, the Just For Kids Maxi Grow Hair Food nourishes and moisturises hair and scalp to maintain healthy hair.

For relaxed hair

If you choose to relax your child's hair, then it's important to go for a gentle relaxer technology.  The Just For Kids No Lye Relaxer ( banded with Neutralising Shampoo) is a no irritation, no mix, gentle relaxer for all types of hair – from a sensitive scalp to coarse hair. After rinsing off all traces of all relaxer, the Just For Kids Neutralising Shampoo must be used to neutralise the child's hair to it's perfect pH balance. This specifically formulated Neutralising Shampoo includes a colour signal, which will turn the foam  pink if relaxer is present. A white shampoo foam, is the signal, that pH balance has been achieved. Only once all traces of relaxer are removed, will the lather be white and water will run clear.

To manage dandruff

For a dandruff-free scalp, we recommend the Just For Kids Hair & Scalp Nourisher as it's enriched with tea tree oil, which is great for controlling dandruff, flaking and itching. It's perfect for braids and dreadlocks too. You can also go for the Just For Kids Pink Oil Moisturiser or the Scalp Soothing Hair Food as they’re both packed with soothing ingredients that will combat dandruff.

For detangling hair

Perfect for conditioning and knotty hair, the Just For Kids Detangler  prevents breakage and makes combing relaxed and natural hair comfortable. It also works well when taking off braids, leaving hair soft and manageable.
