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
