A common worry among transracial adoptive parents, of a child of African decent, is how to properly care for our child’s hair. There are many things to worry about as a new parent—and while hair care is extremely important for a variety of reasons—caring for your child’s hair shouldn’t be one of them. Caring for your child’s hair can be a fun bonding ritual.

Adoption Mosaic has teamed up with the stylists at the Jayah Rose Salon to bring you a fun, informative, instructional workshop that will cover hair care basics.

Topics will include:

  • Basic braiding
  • Advanced braiding
  • Quick styles
  • Skin care basics
  • Information on hair care products
  • The history of cultural attitudes about hair
  • Resources
Adoption Mosaic would like to extend a special thank you to the wonderful owners and stylists at The Jayah Rose Salon, a full service salon and spa, for the use of their space and their commitment to helping us make this series a success!
