Melanated Mommies Hair Love: Embracing Our Children's Natural Beauty

Let's talk hair, mamas! Our children's crowns of curls, coils, and kinks are not just beautiful – they are a powerful expression of their heritage and identity. But sadly, we live in a world where natural hair is often met with negative stereotypes, discrimination, and a lack of resources and understanding. That's why today, we're opening a space for melanated mommies to share, learn, and empower our kids to love their natural hair fiercely.

Combating Hair Discrimination: It Starts With Us

Did you know that Black girls are far more likely to be suspended or expelled from school because of their hairstyles? Or that there are workplaces where our natural hair is still deemed "unprofessional"? The fight against hair discrimination is far from over, and it starts at home.

Here's how we can raise strong, confident kids who stand tall with their crowns:

  • Lead by Example: If we struggle with our own hair, they sense it. Embracing our own natural beauty is the first step to teaching them self-love.
  • Fill Their World with Positive Images: Look for books, shows, and toys that feature characters with a variety of beautiful natural hairstyles.
  • Call Out Discrimination: If you see unfairness at school or elsewhere, don't stay silent. Advocate for your child and educate those who need it.

Finding Hair Care Resources: We're Not All Hair Experts!

Let's be honest, caring for natural hair can be an intricate and sometimes overwhelming process! But with some knowledge and the right resources, we can rock those wash days.

Here's where to start:

  • Reliable YouTube Channels: Search for channels by trusted natural hair stylists and moms sharing their techniques and product recommendations.
  • Blogs & Websites Dedicated to Natural Hair: These sites often offer detailed guides, product reviews, and inspiration. (Check out some popular ones like
  • Local Natural Hair Salons: Even if a regular visit isn't in the budget, stylists in these salons are fountains of knowledge and can offer tailored advice

The Foundation: Creating a Positive Hair Care Experience

Mamas, our attitude during wash day sets the tone! Let's transform it from a battle to a bonding experience:

  • Make it Fun: Play calming music, tell stories, or sing songs. Let them participate in the process as much as possible.
  • Gentle Detangling: Invest in good tools and detangling products designed for natural hair.
  • Praise and Encouragement: Celebrate their hair's strength, versatility, and beauty. Tell them their coils are magical!
